VILLAGE SEEKS REBUILDING, REPAIR FUNDS

Village officials are seeking state funding to repair Village Hall as well as do work on Lakeview Avenue in connection with the renovation of the East Main Street campus of Fredonia Central School.

The Village Board discussed both projects during Monday night's workshop session.

The estimated cost of restoring the tower on Village Hall, repairing part of the roof, restoring a chimney, window work and other items is $187,000, according to the report by architects Habiterra of Jamestown.

Village officials plan to request funds for this project through Assemblyman William Parment, D-North Harmony.

Lakeview Avenue will be used as the alternative entrance and exit for the campus. Engineering consultant Rex Tolman has said the roadway needs to be rebuilt, including drainage, curbing and paving, at an estimated cost of $200,000-$250,000.

The village will seek funding through State Sen. Patricia McGee, R-Franklinville.

Mayor Frank Pagano said Parment has obtained $75,000 for a new traffic light at Central Avenue and Temple Street. Village Administrator James Sedota said the village will receive this money once the work is completed.

In other action, the board:

Asked Trustee Susan Westling to design a new policy on financing drainage projects. This comes in the aftermath of controversy over how property owners were assessed for the Cottage Street project.

Westling will meet on the issue with Village Attorney Samuel Drayo Jr. and Richard Lascola, general superintendent for the project.

Scheduled a meeting with the planning and zoning boards for 7 p.m. Feb. 15 to review the draft zoning ordinance and map. The Village Board then will set a public hearing before enacting the law.
