ARKPORT, NY – The Hornellsville Town Board announced last night that they were notified that the pouring of 117,000 sq ft of concrete slabs will start next week at the new hospital. The pours will be starting at approximately 4am twice per week, and local residents can expect additional traffic and noise. The pours will last from mid July till the end of August.
Planning board head Joe Dick announced that changes to the fee structure for building permits is in the works. After repeated visits at certain businesses over the past few months, the planning board decided that it would be more cost efficient to limit the number of visits on the initial permit and have a fee structure in place for repeated visits. In addition to that, a road opening permit will also be established to fill roads back in after extended use.
In other news, the owner of Cajuns Towing on 572 Lattimer Rd was present and spoke to the board about a recent visit from the code enforcement officer about the number of abandon vehicles on his lot. Owner Robert Dickenson was notified that he has too many autos on his land and some of them have to go, and possibly another fence needs to be put around the property.
Dickenson said that most of the autos are vehicles impounded by law enforcement for drugs and other infractions and he has to keep them in his possession until the court decides their outcome.
Town Supervisor Dan Broughton explained that the code officer is new and his lot was probably mistaken for a junk yard, instead of an impound lot, and the three of them will get together and get things straightened out.
