The Aurora Town Board Monday received a request for all correspondence regarding Presbyterian Homes of Western New York's proposed retirement community at Mill and Sweet roads.

Arthur J. Giacalone, an attorney retained by Park Associates, owners of the Aurora Park Nursing Home in East Aurora, filed the request under the state's Freedom of Information Act. Giacalone requested State Environmental Quality Review Act documents as well as architectural and engineering drawings submitted to the town by Presbyterian Homes.

Giacalone also sought all town Planning Board correspondence and any related item the town has discussed with the Village of East Aurora, since use of the village's sewage treatment plant would be required for the project to proceed.

In other business the board:

Approved the use of the Roycroft Chapel in Town Hall May 22 by the Roycroft Elderhostel program, a seminar focusing on the study of the arts and crafts movement on the Roycroft Campus.

Awarded a $93,212 contract to Visone Construction of Depew for improvements in Water District 10. Town engineer Bryan Smith said $125,000 was originally budgeted for the project.

Unanimously reapproved extensions to the water district serving the Grove and Sweet roads area after the federal government made minor changes to its financing package. Smith said a loan received from the federal Rural Utility Agency is $10,000 less, but a federal grant received from the agency is $10,000 greater. Supervisor William Green said the new financing is "more advantageous" for water district residents.
