The Fredonia Village Board approved four resolutions Monday night seeking state aid for a variety of projects.

The village is working through State Sen. Patricia McGee, R-Franklinville, to secure $125,000 for the reconstruction of Lakeview Avenue.

The work -- part of Fredonia Central School District's Vision 2000 renovation and reconstruction project -- will upgrade Lakeview Avenue as an alternative entrance and exit for the Main Street campus.

McGee also is being asked to obtain $20,000 to be used for the administration of the Teen Center in the basement of Village Hall. The Town of Pomfret, which jointly operates the program, has also signed on to the request.

Assemblyman William Parment, D-North Harmony, was asked to help secure $100,000 to be used for work on Village Hall. This includes the restoration of the tower, repairing part of the roof, restoring a chimney, work on the gutters, windows and flashings.

The Rural Community Revitalization Program of the state Division of Housing and Community Renewal was asked for $30,000 for improvements at Russell Joy Park. The project is estimated to cost $60,000. The Town of Pomfret and the village co-own the park. Each municipality will pay $15,000 toward the work.

In another matter, the board:

Accepted the resignation of Edward Griffith, working supervisor of the Department of Public Works. He has been with the village for 40 years.
