Where we live: Lancaster


Town Clerk Johanna M. Coleman has issued a reminder to residents of the town regarding yard sale permits. Permits must be obtained at least 10 days before a sale and the application must be completed before a permit is granted and filed with the Town Clerk’s office at 21 Central Ave.

Residents are allowed two yard sales a year, 30 days apart. Permits are only valid for three consecutive days. The permit should be posted in a prominent location on the property where the sale is being held.

The clerk’s office hours at Town Hall are 9 to 5 Monday through Friday.

This week:

• The Town Board will learn Monday about a site plan for Keysa Park improvements and the James Metz memorial at the park in remembrance of the Lancaster teen who died in a plane crash last fall. The teen’s younger brother has been raising money to help refurbish the deteriorating basketball courts at the town-owned park.

The board meets at 6:15 p.m. in a special session with the Planning Baord to conduct a required environmental review of the site plan. The boards meet in Town Hall, 21 Central Ave. The Town Baord then meets in a work session, followed by its regular meeting at 7 p.m.
