An ad hoc committee formed at the Aug. 18 Fayetteville Village Board meeting was created to discuss serious rental issues within the village borders. Resident complaints against such concerns as noise and damaged property prompted the green light for the board to review draft laws obtained from both the villages of East Syracuse and Minoa -- municipalities that already have rental laws in place -- in order to move toward a workable solution in Fayetteville.
There have been problems brewing for some time, said Mayor Mark Olson, and he wants no more delays in dialogue.
The committee, comprised of six people, has Trustee Chris Randall at the helm. The board will talk more about the initiative at the next board meeting, to be held at 7:30 p.m. Monday Sept. 8 at the Fayetteville Village Hall.
Veterans Park lighting
Energy efficient LED lighting will soon spotlight the plaques located at Veterans Park in Fayetteville. Currently, passers-by cannot see the plaques at night, Olson said, but with the new lighting, drivers can enjoy the display any time of day.
