Skaneateles village board approves building renovation

Mayor Marty Hubbard also congratulated Mary Sennett on her election as town supervisor and noted that he would be making an appointment to fill her seat on the board before the end of the year.

Any community members interested in either a position on the zoning board of appeals or as a village trustee are encouraged to send a letter to the village office, Hubbard said.

—Hubbard said that the doors to the newly renovated village hall currently do not meet the standards of the Americans with Disabilities Act, since they require too much force to open. However, the manufacturer has agreed to rectify the situation at no additional cost to the village, he said.

—Trustees said that the residents of the village will be receiving a letter from insurance provider HomeServe. The village has no affiliation with HomeServe and residents are under no obligation to engage their services.

—Following an executive session, the board moved to create a new full-time position to take the place of two part-time positions in the police department. Cindy Jacobs, who has worked for the department since 2005, currently works as both the department typist and communication services officer. Since the duties of those two part-time positions overlap and are done in the same office, it makes sense to combine them into one position, Perkins said. Jacobs’ salary will not change as a result of the change, he said.
