Wales to add more ‘no dogs allowed’ signs at town park

The Town of Wales park is going to the dogs – or at least what they leave behind.

The park has one sign posted warning park users “no dogs allowed” but it appears people are not paying attention or don’t care.

In preparation for last weekend’s Easter egg hunt in the park, town officials said at Tuesday’s meeting, that workers had to clean dog waste especially around the swing set where the littlest of egg hunters were on the prowl.

Highway Superintendent Michael Zywar said he will post several “No dogs allowed” signs all along the fencing in the hopes of getting pet owners’ attention. If not, the Board may try fining scofflaws.

Also at Tuesday’s meeting:

• The Board announced General Code will update the town’s codebook for the years 2009 through 2013. Supervisor Rickey Venditti said there are 13 new laws and revisions that need to be included in the code book. The cost will be between $3,900 to $5,900 for the work.

• An Erie County project to repair the Centerline Road Bridge by Union Concrete will result in closure of Route 78 (Strykersville Rd. to E. Creek Road) from April 24- May 23.

• Venditti said he saw the first draft of the redesign of the town’s web site by Aurora Consulting. Venditti will send the next draft to the town board for their review. He said “the web site will have a lot of information on it.”

• Requests for post-prom party funding from the Holland Students Against Destructive Decisions Club and the Iroquois Central School Parent Association will be voted on at the next Town Board meeting in May. The town contributes money toward the two high schools for prom night activities. Venditti said “it is a good and safe event for the evening.”

• The Board will vote on a request from Highway Superintendent Michael Zywar to attend a training school June 1-4 in Ithaca at a cost not to exceed $500. Venditti said the money is in Zywar’s budget.

The Board will vote on the Building Inspector request for renewal of the annual Williamson Law Book Co. software contract at a cost of $540.50. The cost has already been included in the town budget.

The annual review of Department Head fiscal records will be completed this week.
