Supervisor commends handling of water main break

A water main break last week on Chairfactory Road was repaired within a matter of a few hours.

According to Eugene Stevenson, water superintendent, the March 7 break washed out a portion of a lane and a nearby residential driveway. Blacktop will be used to repair the damage.

The water was back on by noon that day.

“Everything is fixed and back in order,” said Stevenson.

“I want to commend the Water Department for helping out,” said Town Supervisor Dennis Powers.

In other business, the board:

Approved a business use permit for D’Sazz Cafe, located at 5952 Seneca St. Owner Charles Stoddard III said the cafe will cater to diabetics and serve health-conscious foods. D’Sazz Cafe is slated to open by April 15.

Hired Barbara Linhardt as a part-time water clerk for $11 an hour.

OK’d a budget transfer in the amount of $217,325. According to Powers, the funds for 48 different accounts in the 2011 budget will be decreased while increasing the appropriations for 48 others. The net effect is zero, Powers said, and the transfer doesn’t affect the budget.

The next Town Board meeting will be at 7 p.m. Wednesday, March 21, at 1600 Bowen Road, Elma.
