Rem-tronics Inc., a Silver Creek electronics manufacturer, may be expanding to a site on Allegany Road in the Town of Hanover.
Dana Tietz, chairman of the Hanover Zoning Board of Appeals, told the Town Board on Thursday that the company wants to erect a building on the site and that neighbors are concerned about traffic. He said the Zoning Board may be requesting that the section of the roadway in that area be designated a "no passing zone."
Town Highway Superintendent Steve D'Angelo said the county may agree to "restripe" the road and make double solid lines prohibiting passing.
Carol DePasquale, chairman of the town's Planning Board, said the board will start to review a site plan and look at traffic patterns.
Tietz said the Zoning Board was told to expect a building to house about 60 employees. A special-use permit would be required for the business.
The area is zoned "light industrial," according to Tietz. He said the firm will be required to meet all the standards for the environment and building codes. The proposal is expected to be before both planning and zoning officials in February.
Rem-tronics is a manufacturer of electronic products, electromagnetic and electromechanical solenoid coils, cables, harnesses, fiber-optic assemblies and plastic molded components for aerospace, military, medical and industrial uses.
In other matters, Deputy Supervisor Homer Bowker Jr., who led the meeting in the absence of Supervisor Kathy Tampio, said Deputy Town Highway Superintendent Ronald Peacock is retiring after 36 years of service.
Harold Anger, Water and Sewer Department supervisor, received permission to purchase some remote water meter reading devices. Anger also received approval for a new flow meter and a totalizer for the sewer treatment facility in Sunset Bay.
Board members authorized the supervisor to sign a contract with the Chautauqua County Sheriff's Office for police protection, providing no changes are made to the document.
