The Angola Village Board Monday left tabled the question of who will provide police services in the village until its Jan. 7 meeting because Trustee Chris Pinto was unable to attend Monday's session.
He had requested that no action be taken until he was present.
"I am of the opinion that it should go to referendum and let the people decide," Trustee James T. Heinburg told the board.
Trustees Gary E. Walter and Michael V. Walters disagreed, saying they preferred to study the matter further.
The Town of Evans has offered to contract with the village to provide police services currently furnished by the Sheriff's Department.
In another matter, the board raised village water rates to $2.75 per 1,000 gallons from $1.60, and those outside the village to $2.88 from $1.73. Flat rates will be $68 per quarter, up from $50; seasonal, $160, up from $125. A new $35 charge to restore service after it has been shut off for non-payment also was approved. The increases take
effect Jan. 1.
The board also heard Zoning Board of Appeals Chairman Nicholas Valvo ask that the village Municipal Law be updated to include provisions for senior housing, town houses and condominiums.
He said, "Court decisions are being made against communities which have not provided for these types of housing which are in demand by developers."
