Town approves two property exchanges
- Sean Mott, owner of the Cedar House, and the town of Skaneateles will switch parcels of parking lot property up by the town DPW and the restaurant/bowling alley.
- The Card Family and The Guppy Falls conservation land.
Note: Both agreements will make all properties contiguous.
Town land sale
A 7:15 p.m. Aug. 19 public hearing is set to review Grace Chapel's purchase of 12 acres of the town's 80 acre Dunning property. The sale price is $87,000.
Bill Pavlus gives thanks
Pavlus thanked town Councilor Nancy Murray and town clerk Janet Aarons for their help organizing the fishing derby held on the conservation land off Old Seneca Turnpike. He also wanted to thank Dana Pickering for keeping the area mowed, Dan Dembroski for grading the land and Town Supervisor Terri Roney for attending the derby.
"I just fished with my daughter," Roney said.
Randy Stockweather speaks for Laker Limo
The board gave Stockweather the okay for the Laker Limo to investigate purchasing a new vehicle, selling the current eight-year-old van. The Laker Limo is structured where the town owns the van, but leases its use to the Laker Limo.
Laker Limo is using FTA funding from the Onondaga County coalition for youth and aging. Therefore the town will not have to pay for the new vehicle, but will legally own it
Stockweather said that the 80,000 mile van will get a decent price at this time.
"We don't want to put it through another winter," Stockweather said.
Their service needs to be dependable, so they can't have a vehicle that is starting to show wear and tear and may need to be in the shop during operating hours. Plus a new vehicle will be more economically efficient to operate.
The town board supported the proposal.
