Skaneateles village board approves critical impact for 46 East Genesee Street

The board unanimously approved the resolution.

Also at the meeting, the board:

—Accepted the resignation of Megan Keady from the village planning board. The trustees plan to appoint Keady’s successor at their April reorganizational meeting and are now seeking applications and letters of interests for the position. Applications or questions can be directed to info@villageofskaneateles.com or via telephone to 685-3007.

—Agreed to direct the Skaneateles Area Chamber of Commerce to take down the temporary business signs currently erected at the corners of Genesee and Jordan streets and Jordan and Fennel streets.

The signs, proposed by the chamber last November, display the names of local businesses as a way to bolster pedestrian and vehicle traffic down specific streets. The village board agreed to allow temporary signs to be placed until the end of the 2012 calendar year.

Since the signs are still standing, the board agreed to request the chamber’s compliance with its previous Dec. 31 deadline, and also to invite the chamber to give an updated presentation to the board of the sign proposal.

—Was informed by Fire Chief Eric Sell that the Skaneateles Volunteer Fire Department collected $5,220 during the recent statewide boot drive for the families of the killed and injured firefighters at the West Webster Fire Department.

Two firefighters were filled and two wounded when they were ambushed by a gunman while responding to a fire call in Webster on Dec. 24.

Sell said the Skaneateles VFD sent four of its members to attend the funerals in Webster.

—Approved a resolution appointing election inspectors for the general village election to be held on Tuesday, March 19.

The board appointed as inspectors Anne E. Buehler, Anne E. Emperor, Betty Liegel and Bill Schneider, and Marion Marchand as an alternate.

Buehler was designated as chairperson of the inspectors.

—Approved the request of the Skaneateles Central School District to hold commencement exercises in Clift Park on Sunday, June 23 from 8 a.m. to 6:30 p.m.
