WEST CARTHAGE — The village board on Monday appointed Robert J. Bookser and Mary Britton to five-year terms on the West Carthage Housing Authority board of directors.

It also discussed the possibility of reducing the authority’s payment in lieu of taxes from 5 percent to 1.5 percent of the basic rent or $3,000, whichever is lower. Mayor Scott M. Burto said the authority has been paying $6,300.

The original PILOT deal from 1987 referred to unspecified state law that must be researched before the board may act.

“We want to move forward with a number that would not increase the rent for the seniors in the housing units,” Mr. Burto said.

Contracts to provide fire protection in the towns of Denmark, for $7,250, and Champion, for $20,400, were approved.

The board also set a public hearing on overriding the state’s cap of 2 percent on property tax increases for 6 p.m. Jan. 28 at the municipal building, 61 High St.
