Cinderella's Caf (c) and Pfohl's Beachhouse gave notice of their intentions to file for a renewal of their liquor licenses for the coming season. Kathryn Murray has combined her lots on 15th Ave and a motion carried to remove 1 sewer lateral from her tax bill.

An annual inspection fee of $50 per site, per year for campgrounds in the Sylvan Beach area was implemented by the board. Inspections will be done by the village codes officer and allow the village to better monitor the development of campgrounds.

The State Police and the Village board are discussing the new lease for the State Police sub-station located in the park. The lease has been $800 per month for the past ten years, which is considerably lower than any other station in the area.

Wendy VanRiper from the Pancake House wishes to use the park on April 25 for a fund raiser to raise money for an orphanage. The matter was tabled until the board could obtain more information about the event.

The Village plans to continue Bike Night this year. Discussions continue concerning the best time of the season to hold the drawing for the motor cycle raffle.

A speed boat called the Screamer is traveling from Aruba to Florida. It will then travel by truck to Sylvan Beach; the intention is to provide rides on Oneida Lake to paying customers throughout the season. The owners, Doug Waterbury and Pat Goodenow are seeking a permit from the Canal Authority to park on the canal wall. After more information concerning the boat is obtained a three way meeting between the Village, the owners and the Canal Authority will be the next step.

The Village will take bids on a new half ton, four wheel-drive pick up truck to replace the 1994 F150 now in use. The next Village meeting is scheduled for 7:30 p.m. March 16.
