Talks likely about hours for senior activities

Officials of the Masonic Lodge likely would be amenable to talks about more flexible hours for the senior center, Councilwoman Pat Christina said at Wednesday night's board meeting.

The town has contracted this year with the Masons to rent space in the lodge for senior citizen activities.

Christina stressed that the town cannot increase the number of hours. The current activity schedule is 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays. Some seniors would like different hours, the councilwoman said.

In other matters:

*Christina announced there will be a free rabies vaccination clinic from 1 to 3 p.m. Saturday in the town barns on Chautauqua Road. All pets must be on a leash or in a carrier. If there is a record of a pet's previous rabies shots, the owner should bring that documentation so a three-year vaccination may be given, instead of a one-year.

*Supervisor Don Steger mentioned that a proposed contract for the town purchasing water from the Village of Fredonia for the North End Water District is on the Village Board agenda Monday. The board will start with a workshop session at 6:30 p.m. in Village Hall.

*The town now has an official electrical code. The Town Board voted to establish the new code, following a public hearing prior to Wednesday's regular board meeting. The code is in compliance with the national code.

*A public hearing will be held at 6:15 p.m. June 13 in Town Hall regarding a proposal to reduce the number of members on the town Zoning Board from seven to five, with two alternates.

*Michael Vinciguerra, of Fredonia, was appointed dog enumerator for the town. The last enumeration was completed four years ago.

*The Town Clerk's Office goes on summer hours, 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. weekdays, after Memorial Day.
