On Monday Oct. 4, The village of Elbridge Board of Trustees authorized Mayor Hank Doerr to sign an agreement with Onondaga County that would give the village access to a county-maintained bid list for services and materials. The agreement is pending the county's budget vote.
Doerr said this would give the village of Elbridge a quick way of knowing it is getting the best price for a given product or service.
"We try to make sure our procurement standards are met for each and every purchase," Doerr said.
Smoke-free parks resolution passed
The village passed a resolution banning smoking in all village of Elbridge parks. The action was in response to an insistent letter from the county, indicating that Seymour Lofft Park was the last park in the county that was not tobacco-free.
The ban will be added to the list of rules on the park's sign, which was constructed last year by local Eagle Scouts.
Sidewalk installed on South Street
After 14 years of litigation, a sidewalk has been successfully installed on South Street in the village of Elbridge. Doerr said the residents who first made the request were concerned for the safety of their children.
"Those kids are now in college," he said.
