continued The board unanimously voted to approve allowing the improved mock up signs at Genesee and Jordan and Jordan and Fennell streets to remain standing through Dec. 31.
The board did not take any action on the proposed sign for Kane Avenue and West Genesee Street due to the zoning issues certain to be raised by the state Department of Transportation, due to its proximity to state routes 20 and 41A. The board will ask village Director of Municipal Operations, Bob Lotkowictz, so contact the DOT and discuss the issue.
Also at the meeting, the board approved the village employee health plan for calendar year 2013. It is the same plan as approved for 2012 through Excellus Blue Cross/Blue Shield, and will have an 8.5 percent increase to individual and family premiums, which will be paid by the village and by the individual employee.
