Close to 20 feet has already eroded from the shoreline, and further deterioration presents a risk to the area in Freedom Park where performances are held throughout the summer. Kastberg said that the village would eventually like to look at improving parking and even building a pavilion for the park to help generate revenue for the community.
Also at the Nov. 12 meeting, the board voted against taking any action to construct a new doorway for the Flint House. The board asked DPW Superintendent Tom Cushing to look into getting quotes from several contractors for the job. Trustee Armon Benny asked the village to hold off on awarding the job until officials created specifications for the job and received bids from three contractors.
"It could mean the difference in saving up $1,100 for the village," said Benny.
Kastberg also said that discussions with Fire District 4 are still taking place with the Town of Glenville.
Glenville Supervisor Frank Quinn said recently the town is now getting feedback from the business owners in the Scotia-Glenville Industrial Park, which is covered under the current District 4. Scotia has provided fire protection to this area over the past several years at a cost to the town of about $300,000, and Glenville is looking into whether it wants to continue contracting with the village.""
