SARDINIA—Sardinia needs community-minded residents to serve on its Zoning and Assessment Review boards. At the annual organizational meeting Jan. 11, Supervisor Bev Gambino said there are two vacancies on the Board of Assessment Review and one vacancy on the Zoning Board. Meetings are generally once per month and members are paid for their attendance. The Town Board has until May 1 to fill these spots. Any interested resident is asked to call the Town Clerk at 496-8900 to apply.
It was also noted that Angela Wojcik has been added to the Town’s secretarial pool, and will also serve as an alternate board member and secretary to the Planning and Zoning boards. Bob Hill was reappointed to the Planning Board, with a term to expire Dec. 31, 2024. Serving with Hill are Nancy Spink (chairman, Dec. 31, 2018) Darren Farthing (Dec. 31, 2019), Daniel Szustakowski (Dec. 31, 2020), Keith Reynolds (Dec. 31, 2021), Christine Eisensmith (Dec. 31, 2022) and Robert Church (Dec. 31, 2023).
Theodore Krolick Jr. was reappointed to the Zoning Board of Appeals, with a term to expire Dec. 31, 2022. Serving with Krolick are Richard Wells (Dec. 31, 2018), Hans Ylmar (Dec. 31, 2019) and Ron Phillips (chairman, Dec. 31, 2021). The term for the person who fills the vacant seat will expire at the end of 2020.
As far as the Board of Assessment Review, Thomas Idzik was reappointed to serve until Sept. 30, 2021. Also on that board are Keith Ramsey (chairman, Dec. 31, 2019) and Gordon Smith (Sept. 30, 2021). The seats to be filled will expire Sept. 30, 2018 and Sept. 30, 2020.
New council member Jamie Emmick was given her committee assignments that evening as well. She will serve with Supervisor Gambino as liaison to personnel and the fire company, with Councilman Len Hochadel for community events and with Councilman Mandy Quinn for parks and recreation.
The only additional change made during the meeting was to rescind the public’s opportunity for comment during a board meeting. Gambino said those who had taken advantage of that time period had used it to either slam their neighbors or talk about issues that do not pertain to board business.
After the organizational portion of the meeting was adjourned, the board approved several other matters and gave approval for the Wildcats and the Enchanted Mountains Girl Scouts to use the Community Center.
They also agreed to move ahead with the project to renovate the pool house at Veterans Park on Genesee Road, and will hire the firm of Drescher and Malecki LLP to audit the books for the Town, the Town Clerk and the Town Court.
