Families may soon be able to enjoy four movie nights at Paper Mill Island.
Mayor Joe Saraceni has done some preliminary research regarding the possibility of village sponsored movie nights for residents similar to the program held in Van Buren Park. Families would be invited to bring a blanket and chairs to enjoy an evening in the village.
Saraceni said sponsors, the insurance and security are all in place and the audio system would be within limits of village decibel levels. The only cost the village may incur would be from overtime for staff.
"This is something for residents to enjoy," Saraceni said.
VB to light Winchell and Walters roads
The town of Van Buren approved a June 28 request from Jacob Wright of Action Sports to install streetlights on Winchell and Walters roads. The town owns the roads and will incur an annual cost of $1,300, which will be added to the general lighting budget.
VB approves town code change
A 7:40 p.m. public hearing was held last Tuesday and resulted in the town adopting a change in the town code regarding peddler licenses. The code previously limited door-to-door salespersons/fundraisers to a 15-day license at a cost of $25. The revision will allow peddlers to obtain a 15-day for $25, 30-day for $30 and a one-year license for $100.
Village holds first neighborhood advisory meeting
The village recently held their first neighborhood advisory committee meeting. Mayor Joe Saraceni said the group discussed trash pick-up, a central kiosk for information, what's going on with Tri-County Mall, concerns about the village web site and inter-municipal cooperation. The next meeting, which is open to the public, will be held July 26 at the Canton Street well facility.
Safe crossing in village
The village has installed the canisters with bright orange flags at two heavily traveled pedestrian walks, one on Genesee Street near the Baldwinsville Public Library and the other on Route 48 near the Red Mill Inn. The flags are there for pedestrians to use for visibility when crossing either street.
