VILLAGE OF LIVERPOOL – At a special meeting of the Liverpool village board on Friday, Oct. 27, the trustees approved the purchase of four benches to be installed at the village cemetery.
The acquisition of the benches had been requested by Dr. Mike Romano, chairman of the village Cemetery Committee.
The benches are being bought from Southland Agway of Bethel, Conn.
The cost should not exceed $2,200, according to Mayor Stacy Finney and the trustees – Melissa Cassidy, Rachel Ciotti and Michael LaMontagne. Trustee Matt Devendorf did not attend the Oct. 27 meeting.
LaMontagne reported that lighting at the cemetery should soon be improved.
“We’re still waiting on some prices,” he said.
The trustees also approved the purchase of new doors for the department of public works facility on Onondaga Lake Parkway, at a cost of $6,795.
That purchase is supported by a grant from New York state Department of Labor’s Public Employee Safety and Health Bureau.
The annual Christmas tree-lighting and appearance of Santa Claus at Johnson Park was set for the evening of Sunday, Dec. 3.
The trustees will gather again at 3:30 p.m. on the afternoon of Nov. 20 at the village hall to hear the result of audits of village government by the Bonadio Group, a Syracuse-based accounting firm.
At 7 p.m. that evening, the trustees will conduct their regular monthly meeting.
