The Freonia Village Board authorized bonding Monday for the Berry Road water line and for drainage projects on Lakeview and Lambert avenues.

The board also found that no negative environmental impact is expected from the projects.

Bonding for the drainage project is $250,000, and for the water line project, $125,000. The water line project may ultimately be financed through the state's Environmental Facilities Corp.

In other action, the board extended the moratorium on construction in the medium density residential R-2 districts for another six months. The moratorium has been in effect for three years, while the village has been rewriting the zoning ordinance. The current moratorium expires on Oct. 4.

The board also:

Set 4-8 p.m. on Oct. 31 as "Trick or Treat" hours.

Announced the village-wide fire drill at 6:30 p.m. on Oct. 11 as part of Fire Prevention Week, Oct. 8-14.

Gave permission for the Chautauqua County Rural Ministry to hold its annual CROP WALK for hunger relief on Oct. 15.

Approved a memorandum of understanding between the Fredonia Police Department and the Fredonia Central School District about abuse of alcohol and other drugs and threats to personal safety.

Designated the addition to the fire hall at 80 West Main St. as the Arthur R. Maytum Fredonia Fire Museum. Maytum was the president of the village in 1901 and organized the three fire companies into the Fredonia Volunteer Fire Department.

The Maytum family also made a substantial contribution toward construction of the museum.
