EVANS SUPPORTS CURRENT RULES ON WETLANDS

The Evans Town Board Wednesday went on record in support of current state wetlands regulations, saying they call for a balance between environmental concerns and the development of the town.

The board voiced its opposition to the state Department of Environmental Conservation's proposed revisions in the existing regulations, which the board said, are an attempt to circumvent the State Legislature.

In another matter, the board voted, 4-1, to approve the purchase of a brush chipper from Lyons Sawmill and Logging Equipment of Little Valley for $15,525 and a new 1989 tractor and grass cutter for $33,391 from Mecca Kendall Corp. of Orchard Park.

Councilwoman Honor M. Schlenker argued that the contracts did not go to the lowest bidder and should be rebid.

The board also:

Authorized Supervisor Paul J. Garvin to apply to the state Division of Youth for funds for the design and construction of a youth center.

Rescinded a previous resolution to terminate the snow removal contract with the county and accepted the county's offer of $1,300 per lane mile.
