Boards in brief: Lysander hires special counsel

— The Lysander Town Board has appointed Scott Chatfield, Esq. as special counsel to handle Transfer of Development Rights contracts and other materials. While there isn’t a limit to how much the town will spend on Scott’s services, which come at a cost of $150 per hour, Supervisor John Salisbury said he didn’t think it would be a lot and will be within budget constraints.

Board notes

A public hearing regarding a modification to town code section A148-6 and 105-28 to prohibit as-built drawings from being included as a punch list item and covered by a performance bond or other security will be held at 7 p.m. Monday, July 9, at the Lysander Town Hall, 8220 Loop Road, Radisson.

A speed zone study has been submitted to the New York State Department of Transportation by the Lysander Town Clerk to review the possibility of reducing the speed on Plainville Road (from Gates Road to Route 370) from 55 to 40 miles per hour.

Lysander Supervisor appointed Councilor Melinda Shimer the town’s deputy supervisor during the June 25 meeting.
