The Orangetown Town Board held a public hearing to discuss restricting parking on Western Highway north of Erie Street as part of Monday's meeting at the town hall.
One concern was having enough parking for local church events, but an informal agreement helped settle the problem.
"We worked out an informal agreement with the church for special events if they call the police (ahead of time) on those days," Councilman Paul Valentine said.
"My one concern is the church would be compromised," Councilman Tom Morr said. "I'm glad they took care of it."
The resolution passed, 4-0, with Councilman Denis Troy absent for that part of the meeting.
The council also approved awarding bids for the purchase of three vehicles by the Orangetown Highway Department.
- Street Sweeper Truck for $205,813 to Truis, Inc in Bohemia, NY, the only qualified bidder.
- Light Duty Truck for $49,495 to Wester Herr of Hamburg, NY, which was the lowest qualified bidder.
- Medium Duty Truck for $78,044 for Navistar, Inc. in Loudonville, NY, which was the only qualified bidder.
The town board passed a resolution granting more barricades and highway cones for the Team KJ Duathlon and accepted a donation of $10,500 from resident Howard Dean for a study of options for Sparkill Creek flood relief.
The board also discussed the tentative 2013 budget proposed by Supervisor Andy Stewart.
