TOWN SEEKS CUT IN LIBRARY BOARD MEMBERSHIP

The Aurora Town Board Monday authorized Supervisor William Green to ask the Aurora Public Library Board to reduce its membership to five from seven.

Green said he was confident the Library Board would go along with the request, which was made because of the difficulty the Library Board has had in getting people to serve on the board.

In a related move, Councilman Thomas Cotton moved to appoint LauraLee Naughton to a five-year term on the Library Board, replacing Jean Anderson who resigned earlier this fall.

Mrs. Naughton comes to the board from the Friends of the West Falls Library, a group created to keep the West Falls branch open following efforts by the East Aurora Library to curtail hours at West Falls or eliminate the branch. "I think it's an ideal appointment," Cotton said.

In other matters, the board:

Transferred $3,200 within the Recreation Department to pay for a camera, skating shelter and concession stand now under construction at Hamlin Park.

Approved a contract with Lakeshore Equipment Testing Services to do drug and alcohol testing on town employees who drive town equipment. Highway Superintendent Dennis W. Nourse said the contract calls for Lakeshore to receive $45 per test, $10 less than this year's amount. Nourse said no town employee tested positive for drugs or alcohol during 1997.

Appointed Celeste Walsh second deputy town clerk.
