>Town Board approves two special permits
Special permits for a gas station and asphalt processing facility were approved by the West Seneca Town Board on Monday night after public hearings.
The board approved the request for a change in classification for a former gas station located at 3502 Clinton St. to allow the sale of gasoline and to use the existing building as a convenience store.
The second request restored a special permit that had lapsed for an asphalt facility at 150 Gemcor Drive.
The town's Planning Board recommended approval of the special permit at its Nov. 16 meeting, with certain stipulations, including: the access road from the public road should be paved with blacktop, no aggregate washing on site and the issuance of a negative environmental declaration from the town.
The site had been used as an asphalt plant by a previous owner.
