VILLAGE RECEIVES TWO BIDS FOR NEW FIRE TRUCK

Village Administrator James Sedota reported that two bids were received Monday afternoon for a new fire pumper.

Churchville Fire Equipment Corp., Churchville, submitted a base bid of $273,000 with an additional $10,300 for options. Sausbury Fire Equipment Corp. had a base bid of $282,495 with another $4,505 for options.

Village Board members said the estimated cost was about $230,000. The board referred the bids to the Fire Department for review.

The new equipment is to replace Engine 11, which is 38 years old, trustees said.

The board decided to seek state help to pay for replacing the roof on the two-story portion of the Barker Library on East Main Street. The village will submit a request for $70,500 to state Sen. Patricia McGee, R-Franklinville.

The board also began the process for relocating a sewer line near the Fredonia Beaver Club, 64 Prospect St. The club, a social organization dating to 1937, wants to construct an addition which would be over the current line.

Surveyor Wendy Woodbury Straight will be retained for $500 for survey, easement work and data collection. Streets Superintendent Richard Lascola is to obtain a cost estimate for the relocation.

At the workshop session prior to the regular meeting, Trustee Patrick Damore reported on plans for the Fire Department's centennial, set for July 13-15, 2001. Proposed are writing a history of the department, a parade on Route 20, a chicken barbecue, a formal dinner for invited guests, and various concessions.

The board also discussed the teen center with Youth Director Collin Ryder. The center, in the basement of Village Hall, has been closed since midsummer because of low attendance. The board may hire a coordinator for the center who can work with both middle-school and high-school youth.

Finally, the board urged residents to attend an information meeting on the Canadaway Creekside feasibility study at 7 p.m., Feb. 15, in the 1891 Fredonia Opera House in Village Hall.
