The Grand Island Town Board appointed two new members to the Zoning Board of Appeals this week.

Dario A. Violanti, 62, of Wallace Drive and Marion P. Fabiano, 63, of Foxcroft Road succeed Elwood Hausler and Shirley Martin, who resigned last month.

Hausler and Martin said they resigned in protest over the Town Board's refusal to reappoint former Zoning Board Chairman Douglas Scheid to another term.

Both Violanti and Fabiano are Democrats. The Town Board voted Monday to appoint Fabiano to a term expiring Dec. 31 and Violanti to a term expiring Dec. 31, 2003.

Violanti was approved by a 5-0 vote.

Council Member Mary S. Cooke cast the lone vote against Fabiano. After the meeting, Cooke said she felt that there were other, more qualified candidates for the position.
