Michael Tormey had applied for a special permit for a change of use from warehouse to trucking terminal at 4560 Buckley Road. However, neither Tormey nor any representative for him showed up for the meeting.
"I've never had this happen before," Ulatowski said. "What do we do if the applicant doesn't show up to address the board?"
Town attorney Robert Germain advised the board to adjourn the public hearing. It is now scheduled for 7:38 p.m. Monday Dec. 21.
The town is making progress toward developing the Three Rivers site. At Monday's meeting, the board authorized the use of Community Development funds in the amount of $141,906 to complete demolition of the Three Rivers-Cibro site, where town engineer Doug Wickman said several buildings remain. The board also entered into an agreement with Plumley Engineering to apply for a New York State Brownfield Opportunity Areas Program Grant in the amount of $4,900 to come up with a plan to market and develop the area.
"This will take us beyond the demolition and remediation phases and into the development phase," said Town Councilor Naomi Bray, who has spearheaded the Three Rivers project. "It'll bring us closer to actually seeing some development in that area."
