Town expresses concern about Austin Park drainage

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.
