The City Council decided Monday to make the intersection of East Avenue and Elm Street a four-way stop.

Police Chief Mark D. Robinson said there have been 55 to 60 accidents at the intersection over the last 10 years. One was a fatality.

Robinson said it's not clear whether speeding motorists on East Avenue or a visibility problem with cross traffic on Elm Street could explain the accidents.

There are stop signs on Elm Street at that intersection now. Residents have supported the proposal to make it a four-way stop. A public hearing was held last month.

In other matters, the Council renewed for one year an $890,000 contract with Genesee ARC for refuse and recycling services, with a 2.5 percent cost-of-living increase.

Two people commented on the Genesee Country Mall, dubbed "Medical Mall" because of the number of physicians and health-related services that have taken over retail space in the 24-year-old complex.

A spokesman for mall tenant Lake Plains dialysis asked the Council to approve two adjacent parcels for the renal dialysis unit to expand. He said the two-year-old service could expand its present 48-patient load and add up to seven jobs to the 10 there now. The unit is operated by Medina Memorial Health Center.

Another bid for medical space came from Greg Groth of Corfu, who spoke on behalf of Dr. Mitchell Chess, who had offered $50,000 for five mall parcels to set up a radiology clinic and other services.

The Council did not act on either plan.
