FVille ZBA Complies With Court Order Issues raised by a Supreme Court decision will be^consi- dered by the-FayettevUle Zoning Board of Appeals at a session Monday December 16. The issues relate to the Cosser home at 202 Warren St, Fayet- teville. and are again before the ZBA as a result of legal action brought by Mr. and Mrs. Stan­ ton Catlm who are neighbors. Circurnstances raised by the legal decision that need a deci­ sion from the ZBA and will be considered at the public hearing are: • Addressing of additional dimensional limitations set forth in the zoning ordinance which were a bar to the issuance of a legal building permit; • The enclosure of the south porch is in violation of the zon­ ing ordinance. • Did the building inspector have the right to waive the re­ quirement of submitting plans. Offers Optional Drainage Plan A series of three small deten­ tion areas plus one large one has been suggested to replace a 14 foot high dam in Spruce Ridge Estates, a proposed subdivision off Broadfield and Brickyard Falls Rds. The suggestions were offered by Peter Grevelding, an en­ gineer with O'Brien and Gere, the firm hired by the town to re­ view the stormwater drainage proposal presented by Spruce Ridge developers. Mr. Grevelding spent more than a half-hour explaining his suggestion, using maps and drawing graphs to demonstrate the impact of peak runoff, to the Manlius Town Planning Board at its December 2 meeting and to more than a dozen neighbors in the audience The meeting was a continua­ tion o£ the November 4 hearing tor site plan review of the sub­ division. The December 2 hear­ ing will be continued at 8 p.m. Monday, December 16. Michael Decker, developer of Spruce Ridge, and Carl Maar of C William Dunn Engineers, his engineer, did not comment on the O'Brien and Gere report. A site plan with a new drainage plan is expected to be presented by the developer December 16. The O'Brien and Gere review was of stormwater drainage from all acreage in Spruce Ridge, including that in Pom- pey. The consulting engineer re­ commended that several small retention basins be constructed separate from the main streams of the two creeks that run through Spruce Ridge This would hold back the water from the developed area until the LEGAL NOTICES IN THIS ISSUE Grove Street Apartments Limited Partnership Notice of Sale To Secure Lien Town of DeWitt Adoption of Budget Town of DeWttt Ordinance Parking Town of DeWttt Ordinance Slop Sign Town of DeWitt Ordinance: Garbage, etc Yeomans Energy Prog '85-B Limited Partnership Village of Manlius Treasurer's Report Village of Manlius Proposed Local Law #4-1985 NY Lien & Recovery Corp.

Mr Gre.- c veldmg explained. \It is better to impound water at several feet < in several basins) rather than at great heights in case of failure,\ he said, refer­ ring to the-developer's proposed retention area the dam Of major concern to the Bric­ kyard Falls Rd. neighbors is the impact of the stormwater once it leaves Spruce Ridge and comes on to private property Mr. Gre­ velding recommended that the Town of Manltus obtain drain­ age easements upstream arrd downstream from the culvert under Brickyard Falls Rd \to allow for reconstruction of the existing ditch and maintenance thereafter \* He also recom­ mended that the culvert be mod­ ified to handle the peak flows expected from a 25-year storm. • The work being performed is in violation of a section of the zoning -ordinance which pro­ hibits alterations exceeding 25 per cent of the market value of the original structure: and • That a local village law adopted in 1975 relating to the density requirements of dwel­ ling units m the village applies m the Cosser case and is being violated by the present construc­ tion. According to village attorney Robert Baldwin, the court said the Cossers could rectify their situation by applying for all var­ iances required. \If we could join everything, everything could be settled m one fell swoop,** the attorney said, referring to the fact that the ZBA could have scheduled only one session to determine the issues and, had applications been made in time, decide on the variances needed by the Cossers. The Cossers had not filed for the necessary variances by November 29. the deadline to publish the legal notice in time for the December 16 meeting. The variances will have to be considered at the January ZBA meeting. The original Cosser applica­ tion for a variance for an addi­ tion to their home was approved in May 1983 by the ZBA. The legal action was filed by the Cat- lins against the ZBA in 1984 after the board decided not to consider several interpretations of the village ordinance that they felt related to the Cosser case The state Supreme Court ruled in July 1985 that the ZBA should consider some of the in­ terpretations and sent the case back to the ZBA. The court ruling noted that on the basis of statements made by William Robertson, a member of the ZBA. during the ZBA hear- ings on the Cosser issue, he should disqualify himself from further ZBA matters involving the Cosser situation \to avoid the appearance of impropriety.'* Diane and Thomas Gaggin. backyard neighbors of the Cos* sers. joined the Catlins in their request for interpretations, but dropped out for financial reasons when the Catlins filed legal ac­ tion with the state Supreme Court. Mrs. Gaggin, who was appointed clerk to the ZBA in 1985, has removed herself from handling the case. In addition to having an acting clerk during the Cosser rehearing, there will be a court stenographer to record the proceedings and provide a transcript HQLID-flY SPECIALS • SALE ENDS MONDAY, DECEMBER 9 CALIFORNIA CHARDONNAY BEST BUYS-750 ML • Guenoc *&** • Porducci *4& • Robert Mondavi - 1903 ...i. *8 M PARTY SPECIALS - 1.75 CITER • Stalingrad Vodka *8» r • Leeds Gin *B n • Leeds Blend Whiskey *10 ts B&G BLANC de BLANC WHITE BORDEAUX SI 99 1 TSQ TSOML TAYLOR LAKE |COUNTRY f VERMOUTH SOFT I SWEET Oft DRY RED } s p 62 Cm Liter Ltteif $966 Cm 1J51 PAUL MASSON CHABLIS i U ..r *4.59 1.00 Mail in Rebate NET COST MUMAUON tHMMA ANDRE EXTRA DRY CHAMPAGNES $929 Cm 750 ML '3.59 HARVEY'S SHOOTING SHERRY SJ59 *T 750 ML Glenora New York State Wine Tasting <i in this store < SATURDAY, DECEMBER 7 2.00-6:00 P.M.
