Board of Education schedules special meeting for visioning

Visioning for the Akron Central School Capital Project is planned during a special Akron Central School Board of Education meeting this Thursday, February 28 at 6:00 p.m. The Visioning session is expected to take about two hours and will be held in the Board room. Representatives from Wendel Duchscherer architects met with Board of Education members earlier this month to give an overview of what the visioning will look like and asked for a commitment of about two to three hours to complete that process.

Enforcement of current snow removal ordinance planned

Enforcement of present snow and ice removal ordinances rather than new regulations is the direction Akron Village Board members decided to take Monday night. Code Enforcement Officer Don Folger was asked to issue warnings and then violation notices to businesses and residents not removing snow and ice from sidewalks as required by village ordinances. Under the current law, residents and businesses must clear their sidewalks by 9 a.m. after a snowfall.

Town calls on Governor to maintain SRO program

Newstead Town Board members are asking New York State Governor Eliot Spitzer to continue the assignment of Special Resource Officers to schools. Governor Spitzerís proposed executive budget recommends the redeployment of Troopers from School Resource Officer assignments and Investigators from Video Lottery Units to other duties. These and other actions will permit the use of 200 Troopers to enhance crime reduction efforts as part of Operation IMPACT. In a resolution which passed unanimously on Monday night, Town Board members noted that the presence of 92 full time officers assigned to 118 school districts, including the Akron Central School District, have resulted in creating a safer environment on and around the school premises.
