During the Cicero Town Board meeting on April 27, the board approved the appointment of three temporary members to the town's Board of Assessment Review in preparation for Grievance Day.
The board approved the temporary edition of Harold Nauman and Steve Pourbeck to the Board of Assessment Review, with Kurt Wasner approved as an alternate, as-needed member. The men were appointed to assist with assessment reviews on Grievance Day, set for June 7, where Cicero residents may voice their complaints on this year's property assessments. Reassessments conducted by GAR Associates are now on file in the Town Assessor's Office. To make an appointment to discuss your assessment with Town Assessor Brad Brennan, call 669-1410.
During the meeting, a presentation was also given by Jim Morrissey from C&S Engineers concerning the culverts under East Circle Drive, over Darlene's Brook. The three large corrugated steel pipes, which are used for drainage purposes, are due to be inspected by the State Department of Transportation and potentially cleaned or replaced. The piping has a normal lifespan of 20 to 25 years, and the current piping under East Circle Drive, which was installed in 1976, is past due on upgrades. No decision was made by the board on what the next step should be.
Finally, Judy Dickson and members of the Young at Heart Senior Center were honored by Supervisor Judy Boyke as the organization nears its 20th anniversary on May 4. Join the seniors from 2 to 4 p.m. May 4 at the center, 5924 Lathrop Dr. in Cicero to celebrate.
The next town board meeting is scheduled for 7 p.m. May 11 at Town Hall, 8236 Brewerton Road in Cicero.
