3 hearings set for Oct. 27

The Hanover Town Board will host three public hearings Oct. 27, with one focusing on the 2009 budget.

The hearings were set at the board's regular meeting Tuesday.

Supervisor Kathy Tampio said she would not comment about amounts included in the 2009 spending plan.

She said meetings are continuing with members of the Town Board, and she would not finalize numbers until Friday at the earliest.

The first of the three public hearings, at 7:35 p.m., will be on the fire protection contract with the Silver Creek Volunteer Fire Department.

The proposed annual payments are $44,314, $46,530 and $48,857 for 2009 to 2011.

The budget hearing is set for 7:45.

At 8, the board will hear comments about a new local law that will permit property liens and charges to property owners who fail to control weeds and allow them to present a fire hazard.

Tampio received board support to change health insurance coverage for town employees with an expected savings of $25,000.

Mike Hall, of Hanford Bay, asked about sewer charges owed to the town. Tampio said the amount is still in negotiation.

Hall also noted that the reverse 911 notification system did not work in his neighborhood when it was reportedly activated to warn residents of the railroad crossing being closed. Tampio said that issues were reported with the system and that they would be reported to the Chautauqua County Sheriff's Office.
