Where we live: Lancaster


The Village of Lancaster is on the hunt for two part-time code enforcement officers, since it has none at the moment.

The village is starting to advertise for the positions, both of which are now vacant. Normally, two officers work for the village, but recently, it had just been Ryan McNichol, who recently resigned.

The position paid $12,00 a year or $15 per hour in the current 2014-15 budget year.

In other village news, the Village Board is no longer holding its work sessions on Monday evenings at 6 p.m. before its regular 7 p.m. sessions. The board decided to move its work sessions to 5:30 p.m. on the first and third Thursdays of each month, preceding the Monday regular business meetings on the second and fourth Mondays of each month.

Board members said they needed more time to hash out certain issues than the 6 p.m. Monday timeframe allowed for.

The first new work session, starting at 5:30 p.m., is this Thursday in the Municipal Building, 5423 Broadway.

This week:

• The third annual “Ride for Bryce” fundraiser in memory of Bryce Buchholz begins at 11 a.m. Sunday at Keysa Park in the village. Family and friends are trying to raise money for the second phase of the bike and skate park that opened last fall in Bryce’s memory. The 14-year-old Lancaster teen was killed May 3, 2012, when he was struck by a drunken driver while riding his BMX bicycle home.

• The Lancaster Market’s annual grand opening is at 10 a.m. Sunday (today) at 4913 Transit Road, kicking off its season that runs through Oct. 25. The hours will be Sundays from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m.

• The Town Board meets in a work session at 6:15 p.m. Monday with the Municipal Review Committee to review the Hidden Meadows subdivision. The board then meets in a 6:30 work session following the subdivision review, followed by a regular board meeting at 7, Town Hall, 21 Central Ave.
