NEW CLINIC PROPOSED FOR ADULT SERVICES

Suburban Adult Services has proposed building a 22,500-square-foot headquarters and clinic on West Maple Court in Elma.

Company representative Anthony Annunciato announced plans for the facility during a Town Board work session Wednesday.

The building would house the company's headquarters and serve about 80 disabled clients daily.

The company, which has been in business for 27 years, currently is headquartered on Blossom Road in Elma and provides services for mentally ill, epileptic and autistic adults, and also contracts with 13 school districts for youth services.

He said the facility would be built on a 6.1-acre site. Annunciato, who said the new facility could be up and running in a year, was steered to the town Planning Board.

In another matter, Mildred Cirocco, wife of Councilman Bill Cirocco, presented a 286-signature petition urging the Town Board to hold a referendum on the site of the new town hall. The board has yet to reach a decision on the vote.

A citizens committee has recommended a Bowen Road site for the proposed town hall, and the board bought the land in September. Opponents of the site said they prefer a location next to Elma Town Plaza on Bowen Road.

In other matters:

The town's two justices once again urged raising the pay for court clerks, currently at $11.10 an hour and on track to rise by 3 percent in January. They propose raising the pay an additional $1 an hour beyond the scheduled 3 percent increase.

The board voted to enter into an agreement with National Fuel Resources, a supplier of natural gas, for a fixed price of $6.50 per cubic foot. This is a savings of $1,876 from last year, officials said.
