V i l l a g e t a x e s w i l l r i s e M o b i l e h o m e la w p a s s e d GREENWICH JOURNAL Thursday, April 15,1999 SALEM PRESS Page 3 o n l y s l i g h t l y Land use planning meeting scheduled The regular monthly meeting of the Greenwich Village Board was held Tuesday, April 13, following the or­ ganization meeting. The board read and accepted department reports. Bills were paid with appropriate transfers. The board had hoped to open bids for new fire apparatus; however, none had been submitted. Discussion of price and specs for the two trucks needed by the fire department brought an overall agreement to continue to work toward purchasing both trucks for an accept­ able amount. At 7:30 p.m., Mayor McCormick opened a.public hearing on the tentative budget for the new fiscal year begin­ ning June 1. After reviewing the budget line by line and making only minor changes, the board voted to approve the proposed budget. Up only $2,000 from last year, the new budget sets the tax rate at $7.9868 per $1,000 assessed value. This amounts to an increase of just under 8 cents per $l,0Q0. The mayor com­ mended all departments for working within their budgets. Eric Lowder of the Prudential Insur­ ance Company and Sherwin Bowen of the local Lions Club were in attendance to present the Greenwich Fire Depart­ ment with an automated externa! defi­ brillator which will be used for emergency treatment of victims with cardiac arrest, EMS Coordinator Lt. Casey explained that there are now nine workers certified to. use the lifesaving equipment. More are in training. Mayor McCormick appointed Jamie Lewis as a new member to the planning board; village board members approved the appointment. The Village Justice Department will receive a replacement copy machine. In correspondence, the board received notice from Nicole Bowers of the Greenwich Community Youth Group of a Charity Run to be held May 8 , on a 16-mile course along Rte. 29 from Greenwich to Saratoga. The board will seek more information about the event. The board then adjourned to execu­ tive session for a personnel matter.

By Tony Basiile The Greenwich Town Board passed a revised Mobile Home Ordinance Tuesday night, following a public hear­ ing which aired opinions on both sides of the issue. The revision specifically allows the installation Qt \double wide\ manufactured homes on private prop­ erty providing certain criteria are met. The units have always been tacitly allowed, even though the ordinance seemed to prohibit their use. Under the new provisions, the manufactured homes must be at least 24 feet wide and contain a minimum of 1,000 square feet of living space. Addi­ tionally, the units must be either placed on a foundation, or on a concrete slab having footings that extend below the frost line. The homes must be new, which is defined as never having been lived in and not more than five years old. This allows the purchase of dealers' demo units, often available at reduced prices. Additionally, State Ag & Markets Law provisions regarding single wide mobile homes were reinstated. Those provisions had somehow been deleted from the town's mobile home ordinance over the years. Under the Ag & Markets Law, farmers may install mobile homes on their property for use by employees engaged in working the farm. These units must be occupied at least three months out of the year. The revision passed by a 4 to 1 margin, with Councilman Steve Patrick opposing the double wide provisions on Ashlar to host District Deputy On Monday, April 19, at 7:30 p.m. Ashlar Lodge No. 584, Free and Ac­ cepted Masons of Greenwich will host the official visit of District Deputy Grand Master of the Washington Dis­ trict, Richard Lebowich This will be the final visit of the 1998-1999 Masonic year. All area Masons are urged to attend and welcome him home to his Lodge. Refreshments will follow the Communication. th 6 grounds that such units may ad­ versely affect the property value of neighboring homes. Land use informational meeting scheduled The board scheduled a land use planning informational meeting for May 4 at 7:30 p.m. at the GCS high school auditorium. This is a town wide meeting designed to educate the board and public ori the various land use options available to municipalities, and to get a preliminary sense of commu­ nity feelings on these options. This will not be a town board meeting, but rather a community meeting for interested ■ persons. The board also scheduled a public hearing for the next regular meeting. This hearing will address Local Law No. 2 of 1999, which is the changes in the town's subdivision regulations. These changes were presented to the town board by the planning board after a lengthy study. They were approved by the town board Tuesday for the pur­ poses of holding the public hearing. More information on these changes will be published in future issues of The Journal-Press. May 1 is clean up day The board also scheduled May 1 as Spring Cleanup Day, and is asking everyone who wishes to participate to clean up the roadside directly in front of their own home or business. Town trucks will be located in three areas for collection purposes. The town will ac­ cept the roadside trash at no charge. On Dean’s List at Hartwick Kathryn E.

Walking up the hill on Monday, we discovered a small patch o f white violets in bloom on a sun-warmed bank in front of a neighbor's home. When does anyone remember vio­ lets in bloom in early April? The blossoms were short stemmed, snuggling close to the ground; Daffodils are showing their cheery faces and sciila’s blue blossoms are a cheery vision.

Just try to think of something funny, Happy times, a day so sunny. Think of birds up in the trees. Think of monkeys and honey bees, Think of colors oh so bright. Think of stars up in the night, Think of rainbows blue to red. Put a happy thought into your head, Remembersmiles, love and laughter; It may help you find what you were after. -Jane Weir The public is cordially invited to the OEDICATION • of the - ^ PLEASANT VALLEY Special Care Unit Argyle, N.Y.
