Sloan Village Board Meeting: July 10, 2018

Here is a recap of the matters discussed at the July 10th Village of Sloan Board Meeting.

A milling and paving project to rehab Reiman Street is scheduled to begin mid-August according to Highway Chief Gene Beszczynski.

Village Clerk Debra Smith mediated a dispute between two village residents over property boundaries after one of the residents wanted to put up a fence.  The matter was resolved amicably.

Village Attorney James Vallone sued a woman in small claims court on behalf of the village to recover costs to a street sign that was damaged.  Mr. Vallone said every attempt was made to collect the money, but the lawsuit became necessary when the woman did not respond.

The Village Board voted in favor of measures to cut the lawn at 76 Celina Street and to invoice the property owner; to apply for a $1.25 million matching grant for sewer relining; and to raise the user fees at the pool for anyone without a resident card.  Children outside of the village without a card will pay $5 per use/per child or $20 per season.

Fire Chief Alan Wieberg says the new fire truck has been put into use at several mutual aid fire calls.  The old fire truck is in need of some regular maintenance and repairs.  Hunter Rose was appointed to the fire department.

Trustee Tammy Bates says National Night Out is Tuesday, August 7th and Sloan will have its own shelter at Town Park.   There will be a pizza judging contest with the proceeds going to local charities yet to be determined.

Ms. Bates also said there is a New York State sponsored youth summer lunch program every weekday at Griffith Park.  It is open to any local child under 18.  Sloan residency is not required.
