Arkport Village Finalizes Rent with Town

August 16, 2016

Arkport, NY – The village of Arkport passed a resolution accepting a three year contract with the town of Hornellsville for the use of the Village Fire Hall for court and judges chambers. “We gave them a price, and basically we got what we were asking for,” said village Mayor Charlie Flanders. The new deal calls for $500 up front and $200 a year for the next two years. The village originally wanted a five year commitment but is happy with just three. Hornellsville town board member Bob Mauro, who is also the highway superintendent for the village, said the town will be looking for a new home when the contract expires. “We are currently looking at a new location near the airport.”

In other news two projects that were planned for this summer will be on hold until at least the spring of next year. Both Mauro and Flanders agreed that the paving on Northridge Drive and the placing of wooden chips at the playground can wait. “Hopefully when the time comes to pave Northridge Drive we will have more CHIPS money,” said Mauro “And it would be kind of senseless to put $5000 worth of wooden chips down at the playground this late in the year.”
