266 PARK AVENUE - PLANTERS
Previously, Mr. Monaco, 266 Park Avenue, had made application to put an arbor and a section of fence on the side of his property. He thought that the Board approved the placing of evergreens in planters instead of evergreen shrubbery in the ground. The Mayor said that Mr. Monaco misunderstood and that the Village code does not allow planters, but there must be evergreens in the ground to hide any fence or arbor. The Village Attorney will check on the code and also with the building inspector and report back to the Board.
TRAFFIC – PARK AVENUE
Mr. Karcic, 669 Park Avenue, advised the Board that he can not take all the traffic on Park Avenue. He feels that the Board is so strict on other quality of life issues in the Village of Munsey Park and should not tolerate outsiders using our roads just to get to the railroad. There has to be a solution, perhaps more police presence or speed humps placed in the road. Something has to be done. The Mayor advised Mr. Karcic that over many administrations and many years, the Board has looked into this situation, reviewed those options and have not been able to find a solution. Trustee Susan Auriemma will talk to the police and look into doing another traffic study and will get back to Mr. Karcic.
The Village Attorney advised the Board that Mr. Goldrick has still not moved the trees required in the resolution and his agreement with the Village. We are not approaching the winter months and it appears that nothing has been done.
MANHASSET-LAKEVILLE WATER DISTRICT
Village Engineer, Ken Pritchard from Dvirka and Bartilucci, was in attendance to discuss the Manhasset-Lakeville water main replacement project. Ken had received a letter from the Manhasset-Lakeville Water District’s engineer on phase 1 of its project, beginning with the westerly section and extending 1700 linear feet from Ridge Circle to the elevated tank easement. In response, Ken has put together some restoration requirements of the Village. Restoration should also include stripping and crack sealant. Ken will send the requirements to the Manhasset-Lakeville Water District’s engineer.
OIL TO GAS CONVERTION – VILLAGE HALL
The Board reviewed three proposals for the gas conversations. Two of the proposals were close in price and materials, but the Board requested that the Village Clerk check on the following: duct work, burner capacity and steel liner for chimney. The Board will review the bids and decide whether to proceed or wait until the Spring.
There being no further business, the meeting was declared adjourned at 9:05pm.
