Tavern, dance center to open in Elma

Two new businesses in Elma will open within the next several weeks.

The Elma Town Board on April 4 issued business-use permits to representatives from both the North Star Tavern and Buffalo Dance Center.

The North Star Tavern, at 7340 Seneca Street, is slated to open its doors by mid-May. The establishment was built in 1831, and its new co-owner, John Davidson, said he plans to bring the historic elements of the building into the restaurant and bar. The menu will offer residents comfort food and possess an old-school flair.

Additionally, Buffalo Dance Center will open a location in the Elma Plaza, 2329 Bowen Road, on April 21. Instructor Stacey Wawrzyniec said classes will begin on May 1.

In other matters, the board:

Accepted the resignation of Claudia Stradtman as chairman of the Assessment Board of Review. Stradtman will remain on the committee but leave her post when a replacement is elected after the June review.

Authorized a contract not to exceed $37,000 with Clark, Patterson and Lee for an engineering highway project to construct water lines and storm sewers on Geyer Drive and Elderberry Lane.

OK’d the appointment of code enforcement officer Joseph Colern as the American Disabilities Act officer at no extra pay.
