HEARING IS SET ON 2005 BUDGET

The Hanover Town Board has set a public hearing on the proposed 2005 spending plan for 7:35 p.m. Nov. 4 in Town Hall.

Supervisor Katherine Tampio said at the regular Town Board meeting Monday that the budget is available in the town clerk's office for review until the hearing.

The total amount to be raised by taxes is $588,760. The total budget is $1,233,674.

The supervisor said the board hopes to hold the line on taxes and avoid increasing the rate charged to property owners.

Salaries in the proposed budget include $13,500 for the supervisor and $6,000 for each of the four council members. The highway superintendent and town clerk salaries were set at $46,350 and $41,580 respectively. A salary of $15,155 was listed for each of the two town justices.

In other business:

Fire contracts with Sunset Bay and Hanover Center were approved following a public hearing. There were no comments from the floor on the three-year proposals that carry a 5 percent increase each year.

Pending a contract with Chautauqua County, the town may purchase a laser speed monitoring device for sheriff's deputies to use in the township. The cost of the device is $3,145.50 and the purchase hinges on completion of an agreement with the county to use the device only within the Town of Hanover.

Vincent DeJohn was named to the town's Zoning Board of Appeals.
