BLACK RIVER The village held a very brief Board of Trustees meeting Monday due to the impending storm.
Mayor Leland J. Carpenter was designated the voting representative for the Municipal Separate Storm Sewer Systems group that has formed to address issues related to the new state program. The group is made up of representatives of the towns and villages affected by the MS4 designation, with the town of LeRay as the lead agency. Black River village clerk/treasurer Kathie B. Montigelli will be the alternate for the MS4 group.
The village trustees also agreed to participate equally with the other municipalities to cover costs incurred by the MS4 group. The town of LeRay is working on drafting intermunicipal agreements relating to the group.
The board also was informed the Planning Board has given approval for AT&T to install a backup power generator at the cell tower on Maple Street.
