ARKPORT, NY – At Tuesday night’s monthly meeting, the Hornellsville Town Board had no major resolutions passed other than some minor budget modifications.

According to Supervisor Dan Broughton, financially the town is in good shape with a balance of roughly $900k in all accounts combined. Town Clerk Jessica LaFrance reported that the town brought in $755 for the month of November with permits, fines and fees.

A report on the number of dog licenses sold to date was requested by a board member, and according to the town clerk, that information will be provided at next months meeting. Initial results were that the program has done very well and paid for itself while actually generating some additional revenue.

The board officially recognized the re-opening of the new Taste Freeze on Seneca Rd N and gave them their blessings. According to the board, the restaurant has an assorted menu and will do catering and delivery. The new owner has a 5 year lease on the building.

Planning board head Joe Dick said that the Woodlands Community Trailer Park at 7522 Seneca Rd N has requested that their park be limited to residents of at least 55 years or older. According to Dick, that might not be possible with all the grants they have already received. He is waiting to hear back from county and state officials whether that would be possible.

Out of 3 bids, the town finally picked an insurance company for their buildings. Trident Insurance will be taking over that coverage.

And finally the board will be taking up discussions on allowing ATV’s and 4 wheelers temporarily on their public roads in the summer months when accessing designated off road trails. As it stands now, it is currently illegal to connect to an adjacent trail using any public road in the town.
