169 KENSETT ROAD - DRIVEWAY
Mr. Ryan Miller appeared before the Board to seek approval to maintain his driveway as it currently is. The driveway is larger than the required dimensions in today’s Village code. Mr. Miller presented a letter from the former owner, Mrs. Grace Pitti, stating that the driveway has not been changed since as far back as 1968. Mr. Miller is seeking approval to maintain the driveway as it is. The Board requested that Mr. Miller submit a permit application to maintain the driveway as is, as well as a survey indicating the dimensions of the driveway. It should be submitted to the Building Inspector for review.
82 BORGLUM ROAD – FENCE & GATES
Donald Higgins, attorney for Mr. & Mrs. Mansoor Beg, made an application to continue a fence along the side of 82 Borglum to match the existing fence on the neighboring property. He also requested two gates - one on with wide of the rear of the house. Mrs. Beg’s dog was severely attacked years ago in a different neighborhood. She just wants to make sure that her dog is safe. Deputy DeMento offered the best solution is intertwining turkey wire into the existing bushes. The turkey wire is very strong and accepted by the Village with no permit. On a motion to approve the two gates that are not visible from the road approved by Deputy Mayor Demento, seconded by Trustee Lippmann and confirmed by all.
CRACK SEALANT FOR VILLAGE ROADS
Trustee Noone explained to the Board that the crack sealant on the Village roads has been completed at a cost of $24,000. The company did have to come back to the Village to correct some areas, and a few areas were added. The Village plans to do additional roads next year.
TREE REPLACEMENT FORM
The Village Clerk explained to the Board that many residents were replacing 80 foot trees with little cherry trees or crepe myrtle trees at a height of 5 feet. She put together a form to be used in conjunction with the tree application permit. Deputy Mayor Demento suggested that it would be best just to copy section 172-7 of the code instead of only naming certain trees. Motion to adopt the amended tree replacement form approved by Trustee Lippmann, seconded by Deputy Mayor DeMento and confirmed by all.
