Shared services under review in Scotia, Glenville

Rizzo said he received complaints from residents on Board Street and Schemerhorn Road.

Trustee Armon Benny said he also had heard from residents on Sanders and Roche streets.

"My response has been that we are working hard, as is the county. We have some bigger problems on our plates," said Benny.

Kastberg also said that Captain Charlie Keller has taken on the duties of fire chief following former fire Chief Richard Kasko's departure. Keller will receive a stipend in his salary until the position of fire chief is filled. The village is taking applications for the job, which pays between $70,000 and $120,000 per year, depending on the qualifications of the applicant.

"Captain Keller has taken on extra responsibilities, stayed past his shift and has done a lot extra for the department," said Kastberg.

The next Scotia board of trustees meeting is scheduled for 7 p.m. on Wednesday, Sept. 10.""
