SPENCER -- The Village of Spencer Board of Trustees held their monthly meeting Monday evening to discuss general municipal concerns.
The board discussed efforts in requesting the Federal Emergency Management Agency to extend disaster days to include Sept. 18 when much of the damages from flooding in the area occured. Village trustees hope FEMA will extend the declared disaster days so the village can receive disaster relief funds for the September flooding.
A public hearing regarding street laws for weight limits and corresponding street signs was set to precede next month's board meeting. The public hearing will be on Dec. 3 at 6:30 p.m.
While reporting on road conditions, one board member raised concern about street repair funding. Three streets were successfully milled and paved in October. However, he related that there will be no funds carried over to next year as there have been in the past from CHIPS, PAVE-NY, and extreme winter weather funds.
Another item of discussion was the creation of a land use planning commission. The commission would possibly include members of the village planning board and other residents of the Village of Spencer. A public hearing may be held in the future in order to discuss the possibilities of such a commission.
