Kevin Wilson was given site plan approval for a kennel and an auto repair shop at 1821 Grand Island Blvd.
Larry Playfair was granted site plan approval for a Monro Muffler shop at 2109 Grand Island Blvd. and an amended site plan for the neighboring Quick Lube Express at 2099 Grand Island Blvd.
An application by Robert W. Weaver for a four-acre clay mine permit at Ferry and East River Road was referred to the town engineer for an opinion whether it would conflict with Ferry Village restoration plans.
