The main topic of discussion at the Town of Aurora Board meeting on Monday night, Belmont, the Maple Terrace Senior Citizen Housing, has long been put on hold because of a drainage dispute in the plans. The problem arose when it was realized that with the current layout, all drainage would go to the south side of the building. However, Bruce Levine, general manager of the project, stated the plans had been redone pending approval from the Army Corps of Engineers.

Tempers flew during the Town of Aurora Board meeting as Councilwoman Rosemary T. Spahn sparked a heated debate regarding the appointment of Jean Anderson and Ann Moore to the East Aurora Library Board of Trustees. Spahn explained that in the past, Anderson and Moore had voted in the affirmative for recommendations to cut back hours at the West Falls library and sell the Alexis Fournier paintings, a consideration that has since been put on hold. “I hold these two women in the highest regard personally but they are slowly and systematically trying to get rid of the (West Falls) library,” Spahn stated incredulously.

Runners of all ages braved the cold weather for the 15th annual four-mile Rehab Run to benefit the annual Children’s Hospital Telethon. The starting line was at Main and Elm Street and the first overall finisher was Mike Lyons of East Aurora.
