CANISTEO, NY – The Village of Canisteo swore in a new clerk/treasurer Monday night replacing recently departing and long tenured Melissa Day. According to an unofficial source, Day announced her retirement last month in order to pursue a new career path.
Lifelong resident and Canisteo-Greenwood Central School graduate Katrina Oliverio took the oath of office Monday night to at least fulfil the remaining term of Day with the hopes of possibly being the full time replacement. Oliverio is 27 years old.
A deal has finally been reached with Boces on acquiring the old fire truck and a mutual agreement is currently being written to finalize the transfer.
Also the village passed a resolution allowing the sharing of newly acquired police vests, helmets, and rifles acquired by a grant to be shared throughout the County in case of an emergency. According to Police Chief Kyle Amidon, this was a prerequisite when obtaining the grant.
In other police news, it was announced that part time officer Cody Recktenwald has resigned in order to take a full time position in the Elmira Police Dept. When asked about his replacement, Amidon stated that he currently has the manpower to cover Recktenwalds duties and no permanent replacement will be sought until at least after December and the next Civil Service exam. There are currently four part time police officers in the village.
And finally discussions continued under old business about the possibility requiring a license for all cats in the village and the changing of a lone parking sign on Depot Street from two hour parking to 15 minutes.
