Codes Enforcement officer Jorge Batlle report

The new Krebs project is coming back to the Skaneateles planning boards this month after a successful review with Onondaga County Planning.

The Lakeview House's construction permit has been issued. Batlle is not sure of the start of construction yet. He also noted that he asked for some outside inspection during the project because of the building's steel frame and the different bedrock it will be built on.

Batlle is looking to install new building permit software during the first week of December.

Activity has started on the foamier Old Stone Mill building Batlle said. That activity means getting water damage fixed and the building rentable. This requires many systems to be inspected and certified. Battle was also concerned that the former owner, Rick Diamond, had done some tricky things that needed to be fixed.

Village Historian notes

Village Historian Pat Blackler brought Kihm Winship's new book, "Skaneateles: The character and characters of a lakeside village," to the attention of the board. No one had seen it.

"He's a great researcher," Blacker said.

Winship's day job is as a professional copywriter at Chase Design. His new book on skaneateles is 498 pages and is for sale at the Skaneateles Historical Society Museum, the Creamery.
