Canisteo To Crack Down On Noise From Dogs

January 4, 2016
CANISTEO, NY – The Canisteo Village Board approved the appointment of new police officers Cody Rectenwald and Kurt Amidon for participation in training at the Police Academy at no cost to the village.
Village trustee Jack Beers reported that the number of ambulance calls from outside the village was significantly up for December. He noted that they expect the same for January.
The board opened numerous bids for a new mini excavator for the village. Bids ranged from $50,000 to around $80,000. The board tabled the awarding until each bid can be thoroughly examined. They plan on choosing a winning bid by February 14th.
The board looked into requests from a few village residents about the possibility of passing a law restricting the number of dogs each household can have. After some research it was determined that they cannot limit the number of dogs per household but they can strictly enforce the noise ordinance law.

The board set the date of Tuesday, March 15 from Noon to 9pm at the Canisteo Town Hall for village elections.
A resolution was passed allowing the village to go into a shared services agreement with the NYSDOT. Tucker said it will greatly increase emergency response times and avoid time consuming paperwork.
And lastly the board accepted the resignation of Allen Smith with great regret from the Zoning Board of Appeals. They will be actively seeking his replacement in the future.
