Liverpool unveils proposed budget

— Liverpool restaurateur John Gormel voiced his concern about a village plan to divide a jagged strip of property it owns between South Willow and Lower First streets into three separate parcels. The village will seek requests for proposals regarding those properties, Kochan said.

Gormel owns the Barking Gull restaurant at 116 S. Willow St., and the Dips & Dogs ice cream stand around the corner on Lake Drive. (For news about the Barking Gull, see Livin’ in Liverpool, on page 6.)

Before adjourning, the trustees voted unanimously to authorize Mayor White to sign an inter-municipal agreement with the village of East Syracuse to continue sharing chief of police services through Dec. 31. The East Syracuse board approved the agreement on March 14.

Liverpool Police Chief Don Morris informed the village board of trustees at their March 19 meeting that officers issued 97 citations for violations of the state’s vehicle and traffic laws during February. In addition, seven warning tickets were issued for minor motor-vehicle violations.

One arrest was made for driving while intoxicated, eight traffic accidents were investigated and 45 parking tickets were issued.

Officers made 165 residential checks during the month while investigating a total of 247 complaints and calls for service.

During February, LPD officers arrested 25 individuals on a total of 44 criminal charges.
