Pomfret calls wind power session

The Pomfret Town Board has called a special meeting at 4 p.m. June in Town Hall to take final action on the proposed local law regulating wind energy conversion system installations.

The Board made this decision at its regular meeting Wednesday, following a public hearing on the proposed law.

At the public hearing, Town Attorney Jeffrey Passafaro made a few suggestions on how to tighten up some of the language of the proposed law. This resulted in Supervisor Donald Steger commenting, "We still have more work to do on this law."

Moreover, the town still is waiting for the Chautauqua County Planning Board's referral notice regarding the proposed law. The board hopes to receive this by the day of the special meeting. The moratorium on wind energy systems in the town ends June 25.

In other business:

* Janine Smith of Fredonia was appointed director of the town's Office for the Aging program. * The board accepted with regret the resignation of Zoning Board member Randall Butts. A deadline of June 29 was given for letters to be submitted to the town supervisor from individuals interested in filling the empty seat on the Zoning Board.

* The Fredonia Farmers' Market opens Saturday in Barker Commons from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. The market runs each Saturday until mid-October.

* The next regular Town Board meeting will be at 7 p.m. July 11 in Town Hall.
