VILLAGE OF ANTWERP BOARD OF TRUSTEES
DECEMBER 3, 2014
The regular meeting of the Village of Antwerp Board of Trustees was called to order at 6:48 pm by Mayor Golden. Upon roll call the following were present: Mayor Golden, Tr. Altmann, and Tr. DeSantis. Tr. Cole and Pickert were absent.
Tr. DeSantis motioned to waive the reading of last month’s minutes and accept as written, Tr. Altmann 2nd and the motion carried with all in favor.
CITIZENS CONCERNS: Mr. Shawn Craven, 107 Mechanic Street, wondered about the status of his request to have chickens on his property. Mayor Golden explained that the homeowner would have to fill for a special use permit which will be denied based on lot size. At that time the homeowner may file a request to appear before the zoning board of appeals who will ultimately make the decision.
DPW REPORT: Supt. Pitts stated the new well is permanently connected and the pump is in. There is a little electrical work left to be done. He also stated that the rear piston in the backhoe snapped so it is out of commission for the time being. He added the Board may want to start thinking about looking into a replacement.
SEWER PROJECT: Contract #1 and Contract #2 are substantially complete. We are still working out the pumping station replacement details with our funding agencies.
The DOL violations at the Village Hall will be addressed. The Board agreed to remove this from the agenda.
Mayor Golden stated that he has not had a chance to talk with Mr. Altmire about the floor at the Village Hall. The Board agreed to remove this from the agenda until there is something to report.
Participation in the NY Warn Program was tabled so the Board could thoroughly review the packet.
