Montour cuts marina fishing

MONTOUR FALLS—The Montour Falls village board eliminating fishing hours at the marina, at the Monday, May 16, meeting.
Clerk Suzanne Casselberry said some fishermen were leaving garbage and and not picking up after themselves.
In other business:
• Greg Cummings, Larson Design Group representative, presented a draft waste water treatment plant feasibility study.  Casselberry said the village has until April 1 to apply for a state grant.
• The board amending the zoning law to include veterinarian to the core use permit.  The village held a public hearing on the change during the meeting.  However, there was only one comment and that was in support of the change.
• A June 20 public hearing was scheduled for increasing the sewer rates.  Casselberry said the water rate would stay the same, but the proposed sewer rate increase is $3.62 per one thousand gallons, up from $3.02.  She added the board is considering lowering the debt service charge for a unit to $98.23, from $104.  Casselberry explained this might help offset the increase.
