The issue of drainage could also be addressed in the future by the private group Parks and Recreation Council of Skaneateles (PARCS), Roney said.
In other business:
—The board approved its 2014 fire protection contract with the village of Skaneateles. The fire protection service from the Skaneateles Fire Department will cost $215,785 for next year, a $1,000 decrease from the previous contract. The dollar amount in the contract is determined by the previous years’ operating expenses, Roney said.
—The board approved a new $100 fee to get an amendment to a previously approved variance. Occasionally when doing a renovation a homeowner will go beyond the provisions of their variance, usually unintentionally, and need to appear before the ZBA to get an amendment, Roney said. Residents will now be charged $100 to get that amendment.
