CANISTEO, NY – The Canisteo Town Board held two Public Hearings and passed numerous resolutions in their last meeting of 2017. The first Public Hearing and resolution passed was a tax exemption for Cold War veterans. A veteran can now continue to receive up to $8,000 and a disabled veteran can receive a tax break of up to $40,000.
The second Public Hearing and resolution allowed the town to proceed with the Community Choice Aggregation Program. The village had voted against that program months back while Bill Tucker was still Mayor.
Gerald Stewart decided to leave the board recently and his resignation was accepted. No reason was given on why he resigned; only saying that it was effective immediately.
Also the board had some good news for the dog shelter. The Canisteo Greenwood Middle School kids raised $1100 for improvements such as fencing and cameras.
Also, resolutions were passed for the scheduled work day for the town clerk, paid family leave, approval for the2016 audit, Pruttsman’s 2018 permit management contract, and a contract for dog services in the town of Cameron.
The next meeting of the Town Board will be January 8th, 2018 starting at 7pm.
