ARKPORT, NY – Ken and Sherrill Isaman officially announced Tuesday evening that both will not be seeking re-election for a term starting Jan 1st. 2018. Ken, who has diligently served the board for 28 years, said he hoped that during his tenure things have gotten better. “I hope someone, preferably a qualified candidate, runs for my post and picks up where I left off,” said Isaman, “It’s really not an easy job.” Isaman concluded, “There is a lot going on within our district and I wish the next supervisor the best!”
Sherrill Isaman will be retiring after 30 years of service as Town Clerk, and has already been schooling a replacement. Sharon Aims, who has recently been hired as Deputy Town Clerk, will be seeking the full time position of Town Clerk come November elections. “She’s already the tax collector, and proven herself well, so she has my full support,” stated Mrs. Isaman.
After a push by board member Ron Kennell the roof on the Town Hall building will finally go up for bids for replacement after months of procrastinating. It was a consensus agreement that the town go with a complete tear off and shingles to save money as opposed to a metal replacement.
Planning board Chief Joe Dick gave an update on the progress of Simmons Rockwell’s new Nissan dealership, and also said that he’s being approached by an anonymous real estate developer about a multi-unit apartment dwelling within the town.
