Sardinia Town board makes changes in structure code
The additions will set forth procedures by which the town can ensure that these structures are either repaired or demolished by the owner of the property on which they are located. If the owner fails to complete the required repairs, the town can remove the structures and recover its expenses.
The changes also gave the code enforcement officer the authority to request that a building or structure be inspected for safety.
Supervisor Mary Hannon, who met with Senator Patrick Galivan at the Boston Town Hall, noted that Galivan’s representative, Mitchell Martin, will be attending the Sardinia Town Board’s Aug. 9 meeting to answer any questions or concerns.
Councilmen Dave Montgomery said he has met with a representative from the Hope on the Hill Church, which offered its shelter in case of an emergency. This refuge can be used only as a temporary shelter and a few changes will need to be done first, such as the installation of a generator.
The representative will get back to Montgomery and the town can then decide whether to accept that offer.
The Sardinia Recreation Department will be taking a trip to Fantasy Island on Aug. 10, with First Student’s supplying bus services. There are 60 – 70 kids signed up for recreation this year and 115 have signed up for lessons. There are nine children signed up for Saturday lessons.
It was announced that there has been some vandalism in Sardinia Veterans Park, recently. Someone set fire to a tree, which was damaged during the fireman’s carnival. The tree was still smoldering when recreation staff and participants arrived in the morning. Hannon suggested having the area patrolled by police. The tree will be removed.
The board will be adding pet stations to the two parks to help respond to recent complaints and to encourage pet cleanliness.
