Chittenango: Ready, set, SLOW

Freunscht said two of the dilapidated homes were hauled out, and the park is to be paved by July 1.

"I told him he might want to see if it is still profitable after he conforms with the new regulations," Freunscht said.

A resident asked the board to consider erecting a stop sign on Burdick Street; Eric Tedford, a member of the Chittenango Village Image Committee, asked the board to also consider installing a stop sign at the intersection of Horizon and Naymik streets. He said he felt some motorists didn't realize those traveling in the perpendicular direction did not have a stop sign and an accident is imminent.

"We can't put up stop signs as a means of slowing down traffic," Freunscht said.

Freunscht said he would refer the matters to Police Chief Jeffrey Paul for consideration.

The board approved the request of Liberty Resources to change the status of a group home on Tuscarora Road from a youth facility to one that houses adults.

The board accepted the $25,760 bid from Sun Chevrolet for the purchase of a 2008 one-ton dump truck.

Freunscht enumerated a list of budget modifications that were approved by the board. Tedford objected to the form of the procedure, saying that no one on the board could know what the numbers or amounts stood for.

"We have to balance our accounts at the end of the fiscal year," Freunscht said. "They take my recommendations as budget officer for doing that.

"We know by the account numbers," said Trustee Barb Delaney. "We trust him."

"That's scary," Tedford said.

Tedford asked if the clock purchase and transfer of funds from the Rotary Club had been completed. Freunscht said it was.

Resident Ron Dean said he was present at the meeting for the discussion on manufactured housing. The representatives on the agenda to make a presentation on the topic did not show.

In response to questions by another CiVIC member, Marlene Denney, Freunscht said the bricks in the lighted sidewalk failed and the lights were responsible for breaking two plows.

The village will hold a ribbon cutting at 10 a.m. June 1 to celebrate the completion of the downtown beautification project begun two years ago. The event will take place on the "yellow brick road."
