No action taken to fill vacancy on Fredonia Village Board

FREDONIA – Village residents will have to wait at least until the next meeting to learn who has been appointed to fill an opening on the Fredonia Village Board.

The position would be held through the end of this year and filled by a candidate on the November ballot. Janelle Subjack held the post until April, when she moved from the area.

No decision was announced at the board’s meeting on Monday. A resolution was in place on the agenda for action.

There were only three trustees present during the meeting.

In other matters, the board:

• Approved the creation of a committee to further investigate the proposed Northern Chautauqua County Water District. Village leaders had requested that the village’s reservoir be used as a backup supply to the City of Dunkirk in a regional water supply program.

County Executive Vincent Horrigan noted Fredonia board members could not agree on contract terms for the base rate to sell water to neighboring municipalities. As a result, contracts were written without the village as a participant.

Final decisions on the proposed district are expected to be presented to the County Legislature by the end of the summer for action on financing the infrastructure to support a water system in areas that have not had treated municipal water or need major improvements to rural systems.

• Decided to table requests from Police Chief Bradley Meyers to hire one full-time and two part-time police officers.
