BOARD APPROVES REPAIR CONTRACTS

One chimney on Village Hall and the roof of Barker Library will be repaired under contracts awarded by the Village Board at a special meeting Monday night.

Raymond E. Kelley of Bowmansville will restore the chimney for $19,880. A.W. Farrell & Son, Dunkirk, will replace the roof for $72,300.

The board also discussed having the Pomfret Town Court move to the courtroom in Village Hall.

David Prince serves as both town justice and village justice. Ronald Johnson serves both as town justice and acting village justice. The board set a rent of $500 per month, but other conditions of the lease will need to be negotiated, Mayor Frank Pagano said.

The board is still reviewing parts of the zoning ordinance that was recently approved.

Several residents of East Main Street told the board they oppose the rezoning of a large area behind their homes. Some of the land is owned by Cornell University for the Grape Experiment Station. Some is an orchard owned by John Walker II of Sheridan.

The ordinance rezones the houses fronting on East Main from R-2, medium-density residential, to R-1, single-family homes. The area to the rear has been changed from M-1, light manufacturing, to C-2, highway business.

The board discussed the new zoning for land near the railroad between Newton and Pleasant streets. It is zoned R-2, but the property owner wants it zoned R-3, high-density residential, to allow construction of an office complex.

The board did not reach consensus on either rezoning issue.
