Tupper village to hold two hearings Monday

TUPPER LAKE - The village board will hold two hearings before its regular meeting Monday: one on changing traffic laws and the other on retirement incentives.

The first hearing, at 5:30 p.m., will look at changing the local Vehicle and Traffic law in several ways.

The village board is discussing changing four local roads - Lindsay, Lakeview, McLaughlin and Mt. View avenues - from parking on both sides to parking on just one side of the road. Parking would be allowed on the edge of the road the sidewalk is on, and the restriction would only apply between Park and Broad streets, said village Clerk Mary Casagrain.

The other part of the law the village is considering changing deals with Woulf Road.

Casagrain said residents there are hoping to change what was once a one-way street between Underwood Road and Lafayette Street to two-way now that a trailer park is gone. Village Public Works Superintendent Michael Sparks told the village board at its June meeting that he would find out whether the road is wide enough to legally change it to a two-way, and Casagrain said he will have that information by Monday's hearing.

At 5:45 p.m., the village will hear comments on the village enacting an early retirement incentive offered by the state. The incentive requires the village employee to be at least 50 year old and adds another month on the date of service for every year the person has worked with the village, Casagrain said.

The position being looked at in this hearing is that of the water and wastewater superintendent, Bob Fuller. Casagrain said the board may consider other positions for the incentive later.

Democratic Assembly candidate Rudy Johnson is scheduled to make an appearance at Monday's regular board meeting, which will follow the hearings.

Regular village board meetings generally start at 6 p.m. in the village board room at 53 Park St.
