Enhancing programs at the Teen Center in the basement of Fredonia Village Hall is one of the items on the Town of Pomfret agenda for this year.
Supervisor Edward Woloszyn, at Wednesday's board meeting, listed other new projects including:
Formation of a Chautauqua Road water district to improve water service from the Fredonia line to the town barn at 9636 Chautauqua Road. The first step was taken with the appropriation of $1,000 for the map, plan and report. Residents will have 30 days to ask for a referendum on the project.
Adding adult-use regulations to the town zoning code.
Computerizing operations at Forest Hill Cemetery.
Eventual takeover of the access road at the Main Street campus of the Fredonia Central School District.
Wiring Town Hall, 9 Day St., for Internet access.
In other action, the board:
Approved settling an assessment suit brought by Wendy's, at the southeast corner of Routes 20 and 60. The assessment will be lowered to $120,000 from $140,000 for the years 1999 and 2000. No tax refunds will be paid by the town, school district or county.
Passed a resolution asking Chautauqua County to defend the town in the suit brought by the Tennessee Pipeline Co. The town is one of seven named in the county, where the pipeline is located.
Approved a local law to permit nonresidents to be appointed to the positions of deputy clerk, deputy highway superintendent and deputy building inspector.
After the law was approved, Connie Golardo of Dunkirk was appointed deputy clerk.
Heard from David Prince, of Birchwood Avenue, who has surveyed streetlights in the town. He said there are 164 streetlights, which cost $22,000 per year to illuminate under a contract with Niagara Mohawk Power Corp.
He will make recommendations on where to add and remove lights. He also suggested that the lights be changed to incandescent because that would lower lighting costs.
Learned that the town will received $7,818 in emergency state aid for costs associated with cleaning up the November snowstorm.
