OLD BUSINESS

The Board discussed the request from Mel Monica, Transportation Supervisor at CCSD for Board support of her request for DOT to exempt the IP railroad crossings in the Village from the requirement for school buses to stop at the crossing. Mayor Pasquarell and Deputy Mayor Halliday had a conference call with Terry Thomas, IP Surplus Property Manager, to discuss. Mr. Thomas assured the Village that there is no intent to decommission the rail line. Due to the extreme disrepair of the tracks it is advantageous to IP to remove the crossing which cuts maintenance costs while the rail is not in use. Mr. Thomas emphasized that IP will work with any new owner to restore the rail as part of purchase of the property. Mr. Thomas also stated that IP is willing to pay for the necessary exemption signage.

Motion by Trustee Brown, seconded by Trustee Bedell, authorized letter of Board support for the railroad crossing exemption be sent to NYS DOT representatives, IP, and Mel Monica, Transportation Supervisor.
