continued —Approved a request from the Greater Cazenovia Area Chamber of Commerce to hold a Chalk Walk event on village streets from 9 a.m. to noon Saturday, June 29.
—Approved a request from Allure Fitness and Dance studio to hold a Zumbathon fundraiser at the gazebo in Lakeland Park from noon to 2 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 11, to benefit Christine Lafave, who is currently undergoing treatment for breast cancer. The event would request donations and sell raffle tickets to raise funds, 100 percent of which will be given to the Lafave family.
—Received from Stokes the draft resolution for the board concerning Empire Brewing Company’s application for a zone change on its Route 13 land where it plans to build a farmstead brewery. The board plans to vote on this resolution at a special public hearing on Tuesday, June 11.
—Asked Lauren Lines of CACDA to proceed with a grant application to New York state for funding to be used to extend the Fenner Street sidewalks from where they currently end down to the entrance to Fenner Fields.
—Discussed how and when to begin the boat patrols on the lake. The Cazenovia Lake Association is providing the boat to be used and much of the funding, but the village is currently investigating issues of jurisdiction on the lake and coordinating with the various agencies involved in the program (the village, the town, the yacht club, the police department and the CLA) to make sure the program is accomplished effectively and efficiently.
—Discussed plans to repair and rebuild parts of the Lakeland Park dividing wall next to Route 13, starting at Carpenter’s Barn and moving north toward the main entrance. Plans include creating a new gate by the barn that would be big enough to allow construction-size vehicles to pass through. Mayor Kurt Wheeler said the village has been holding off on these repairs while they have (unsuccessfully) applied for grants to help defray the cost, but the wall is now becoming so unstable that it would be unsafe to wait any longer.
