Chamberfest Beer Festival... Pg 3 1st annual Event takes Place on June 10th

Get ready to celebrate summer at the Seneca Salamanca Chamber of Commerce’s First Annual ChamberFest! This signature event is scheduled for Saturday, June 10th from 11am-9pm at the Seneca Allegany Resort & Casino. This signature beer festival is a “Brews for Barks” awareness and fundraiser event for the local animal shelter. The Brewfest is being held on the Seneca Allegany Resort & Casino grounds will feature local, regional and national breweries offering samples of their craft beers.......

The Village Board of Trustees held a special meeting Tuesday night to go over some budget modifications before the end of the Village’s fiscal year May 31st. Mayor Burrell explained according to state law; municipal boards are required not to make any payments unless there are sufficient funds for that item in the budget account allocated for that expense. If not, board members can be held personally responsible for covering the expense. This means that each month the board would have to make line item adjustments to the budget to account for any changes. The village has been covering expenses as necessary and adjusting the budget after the fact. Tuesday’s meeting was to perform those adjustments. Starting with General Fund A, the Village received $53,000 more revenue than had been budgeted. Some accounts in the fund had higher than projected expenses, but still, the account benefited with a net increase of $47,500. An adjustment of $4,950 was made to the Water Fund F. Expenses for finishing the Waste Water Treatment Plant impacted the Sewer Fund G. $69,350 was taken out of the Contingency Fund. That fund was created with $153,000, and there are still funds in the account. Going forward, the Mayor said the Board will make adjustments on a monthly basis, as per state rules.

Last year during the summer the Village welcomed the Friday Night Strolls. The four weekend events featured jugglers, face painting, musicians, yoga for kids, and a free movie at the gazebo, all during the evening hours at the start of the weekend. This year the organizing committee plans to have the events start June 30th and possibly run for 12 weeks during the summer. Reflecting on the experience of the “beta” test last year, John Rounds of Adventure Bound on Washington, said, “It was exciting to see it all come together. It was a great team effort.” He said the feedback had been positive

Well, that was certainly a wet spring, wouldn’t you say? I’m all for the “April showers, May flowers” thing – but seriously?

Hopefully with the on-set of the new month, we’ll dry up a bit. Summer is just around the corner, folks – and I couldn’t be more excited! We’ve exchanged expensive problems with ski equipment with expensive problems with our lawn tractor, and backbreaking snow shoveling with back-breaking garden chores… But for my tastes, I’ll take summer! Can you relax, have a cold drink and catch rays in a comfy hammock in January? Well, I guess you could, but the neighbors would seriously question your sanity. Taking a dip in the pool or lake would certainly require a high degree of fortitude in February – not

so in June. Golfing, mountain biking, kayaking, camping, fishing – can they be done as easily in the winter as in summer? I think not… “Summer afternoon” – to poet Henry James (and this writer), the two most beautiful words in the English language. And those beautiful sunsets over our gorgeous green hills around here – simply wonderful! So, dear readers, get out there and celebrate the best (and perhaps the shortest) season we have in the Enchanted Mountains. And pray for a long stretch of hot, dry summer weather. Mother Nature owes us, right? Until next week… JZ-C

Save More Lives From Cancer Through Annual Relay for Life Event

Little Valley, NY –– On Saturday June 10th, Local residents and businesses will join together at the American Cancer Society Relay For Life of The Fairgrounds at Cattaraugus County Fairgrounds to raise funds and awareness in an effort to free the world from the pain and suffering of cancer. The event starts at 11 AM. Founded by Dr. Gordy Klatt in Washington in 1985, the Relay For Life movement is the world’s largest fundraising event to save lives from cancer. Uniting communities across the globe, we celebrate people who have battled cancer, remember loved ones lost, and take action for lifesaving change. During Relay For Life

events, members of each team take turns walking or running around the track or path. Teams participate in fundraising in the months leading up to the event. Funds raised help the American Cancer Society provide free information and local support services for people facing the disease today, and fund cancer research that will help protect future generations. Thanks to the generosity of our donors, the Society has invested more than $4.3 billion in research since 1946, and have funded more than 20,000 scientists at more than 1,000 institutions nationwide. The event will kick off with a Survivor and Caregiver Lap as well as a luncheon provided to all

cancer survivors and their caregivers. There will be children’s activities, bake sales, silent auctions, a DJ, dunk tank, painting class, and Zumba. The Cattaraugus County Sheriff’s Department will also be on hand with a K-9 Demonstration. The evening will conclude with a very special Luminaria Ceremony to remember those lost to cancer and honor those surviving. The event is free and open to the public. Take action this year and help make cancer a priority by participating or donating to the Relay For Life of Olean. Visit RelayForLife. org/FairgroundsNY to learn more about the event, or contact Heather Morris at 716.397.8614 or heather.

Mammoth, but do you know some of these facts that will be discussed at these events? Boys and Girls used to have separate entryways and had separate cloakrooms in the old one-room schoolhouses. If you had been traveling through Bedford Corners (Rt. 305 Portville) about a hundred years ago, two of the buildings that you would have passed are the Bedford Corners Cheese Factory and the Bedford Corners Schoolhouse, Joint School No. 7.  They are both currently being restored by the Portville Historical Society.  The word “Juneteenth” comes from the melding of June and Nineteenth, or June 19th, the day that slavery ended in Galveston, Texas in 1865.  Cadiz is home to a home that is over 200 years old, being called the Howe-Prescott SaltBox House.  The Castle Restaurant (19462001).

The board voted to authorize the Mayor to sign a new oneyear contract with AE Com. Both the Town and Village utilize the services of Planner Gary Palumbo through AE Com. The board also authorized the Special Events Committee to allow Elisa’s Run for the Arts on June 10. The run is being organized by Doug Bush. The run, named after Elisa B. Hughey, is a non-profit that raises scholarships for art students. The discussion then turned to the proposed Code of Ethics for the Village. The proposed ethics are the same rules adopted by the Town a couple of years ago. The Village is required by State Law to adopt a Code of Ethics. Spencer Murry had added language requiring a municipal official to recuse himself from nominating or discussing the nomination of a family member to an appointed position. At the April Board meeting, the Mayor had re-nominated Shelia Burrell for another five-year term on the Planning Board. There was no second and thus no vote. Ms. Burrell continues on the Board as a holdover member. Mr. Murry said he feels there is a conflict of interest if the mayor is the only person who makes nominations to boards. The Mayor countered, saying there are currently eight members of various Village boards that could not have been nominated if that rule had been in place. A motion was made to hold a public hearing on the Ethics rules, but the discussion continued. Mr. Murry said the Mayor was in a position to appoint someone (to the Planning Board) and that he would directly benefit from that nomination, and he didn’t recuse himself. The Mayor grew defensive and said, “This is about getting Shelia Burrell off the board.” He pointed out state law gives the mayor power to appoint board positions. He added he has support from NYCOM (New York Conference of Mayors) who endorsed his position. Trustee Greg Cappelli read from a statute that seemed to contradict this position. Village Attorney Kathleen Moriarty, in an apparent attempt to calm the discussion down, said she saw nothing wrong with getting public input. She suggested the board might seek additional outside counsel to advise on the ethics rules. The Mayor asked for a vote on holding a public hearing on the Ethics Rules on June 12. The motion

and play music spanning six decades. Immediately following will be Dj Kadda with house music till 2am. Heading back to The Gin Mill it’s the amped up version of Joseph and Johnson. Classics done in their original version with a little more emphasis on dancing. Last but not least we go upstairs at Madigans to the sound booth with Dj Shane O’Mack playing dance music From 10-2am. Saturday we’re back at Balloons with 10 Delaware starting at 6pm. They will be laying down some classic as well as modern rock for grooving. This Buffalo band has been nominated for best rock band several times. Music will follow in the sound booth with Dj Kage till 2am. Hitting the downbeat at 9pm at The Gin Mill will be the Tony DeRosa

Duo playing your dance favorites. We end the evening, as so often happens at the upstairs bar at Madigans with Dj Swift keepin the party going from 10-2am. Tuesday at 7pm The Gin Mill will have The Hick Ups for your musical enjoyment These fellows are a compilation of a few groups and while bluegrass is there forte they can play almost anything. Tips and requests are accepted. Finally we do the ever popular Wagner, Winston, Wednesday, Wings at The Gin Mill. Great food and great music. This is a tradition you should enjoy. I just want to take a second to congratulate Brooks and Carrie Lefeber on their wedding Saturday. It was an Ellicottville event. Congrats Have a wonderful weekend and remember, support live music.

passed unanimously. John Northrup asked about a neighbor of his that is not mowing his grass. Mr. Northrup asked if something could be done to have the home’s grass cut. The Mayor said Harold Morton is authorized to issue a fine through the court system for uncut grass. Northrup also asked if Jody Bentley is still taking care of the Village’s trees. Mr. Burrell said she is working with the new Village Forrester to maintain the trees. The meeting was adjourned. Village Code of Ethics At the Village Board meeting on Tuesday night the Board set June 12 at 6pm for a public hearing on the proposed Code of Ethics the Board is considering adopting. (See Contentious Board Meeting, in this issue.) Board member Spencer Murry added article VII to the Town’s Code of Ethics. Below is a reprint of the pertinent sections of the code. Article V. Rules with Respect to Conflicts of interest and Ethical Conduct. a) An Officer or Employee shall not have any Interest, financial or otherwise, direct or indirect, or engage in any business or transaction or professional activity, or incur any obligation of any nature, which is in substantial conflict with the proper discharge of his duties. b) An Officer or Employee shall not have an Interest in any contract with the Village, whether individually or as a member of a board, nor shall Officers and Employees have the power or duty to negotiate, prepare, authorize or approve such contract or payments thereunder, audit bills or claims under such contract, or appoint any person who would have any of the powers or duties set forth herein. c) An Officer or Employee having Village fiscal responsibilities shall not have an Interest in a bank or trust company designated as a depository of Village funds. This subsection does not prohibit ownership of up to five percent of the outstanding shares of such bank or trust company. d) An Officer or Employee shall not accept other employment which will impair his independence of judgment in the exercise of his official duties. e) An Officer or Employee shall not accept employment or engage in any business or professional activity which will require the disclosure of confidential information gained by reason of his official position or authority. An Officer or Employee, or former Officer or Employee, shall not disclose any confidential information

acquired by him in the course of his official duties or use it to further personal interests. f) An Officer or Employee shall not use, or attempt to use, his official position to secure unwarranted privileges or exemptions for himself or others. g) An Officer or Employee shall not engage in any transaction as representative or agent of the Village with any business entity in which he has a direct or indirect financial interest that might reasonably tend to conflict with the proper discharge of his official duties. h) An Officer or Employee shall not make personal investments in enterprises which he has reason to believe may be directly involved in decisions to be made by him or which will otherwise create substantial conflict between his duty in the public interest and his private interest. i) An Officer or Employee shall pursue a course of conduct which will not raise suspicion, or give the impression, among the public that he is likely to be engaging in acts that are in violation of his trust. An Officer or Employee shall disclose any interest of which he is aware in any matters pending before any board of the Village. j) An Officer or Employee shall not directly or indirectly solicit any gift or accept or receive any gift having a significant value, whether in the form of money, services, loan, travel, entertainment, hospitality, thing or promise, or in any other form under such circumstances in which it could reasonably be inferred that the gift was intended to influence him, or could reasonably be expected to influence him in the performance of his official duties, or was intended as a reward for any official action on his part. k) Town resources may not be used by an Officer or Employee in furtherance of his campaign activities, including, but not limited to, mass mailings, telephones, office supplies, postage, copying machines, computers or support staff. l) An Officer or Employee shall not knowingly act contrary to a lawful resolution or motion duly adopted by the Board. Article VI. Disclosure of Interest. Any municipal officer or employee who has, will have, or later acquires an interest in an actual or proposed contract with the municipality or other matter pending before any board or agency thereof, shall publicly disclose the nature and extent of such interest in See BOARD page 8

said, adding that equates to having “a calling” to make that community a better place to live. The club’s members, she said, share that common interest, along with their common hobby of gardening. They have taken both pursuits to Main Street in Allegany, where the group’s members meet Tuesday mornings to weed, pick up trash, plant flowers in an endeavor that deals with more than visual beautification. “The world is stressful,” she said, adding flowers make people happy, as does seeing “a nice little village.”

She therefore hopes the group’s efforts not only make the village look nice, but, also helps people’s spirits. The group’s 30 members want people to be able to reap that happiness at their own homes also. That is why they will offer their indoor show June 10 that will feature about 26 vendors selling flowers, plants, gardening supplies, landscape ideas, garden art, soap making, along with presentations about nature and gardening. The Allegany Public Library will also be on-hand, as will local Girl Scouts, who will sell refreshments and do crafts with children so parents can browse. A container garden contest will be held, with visitors to the event asked to bring their

best container of flowers or plants at 9am to the hospitality table or submit an entry form, and there will be a radio broadcast from the event. The festival is modeled after one in Lewiston, New York, that club members attended. After doing so, Mrs. Williams said, they decided to try their own. After having a successful first event, they would like the second to be even bigger and better, she said, inviting all to help them achieve their goal of making people happier through beautifying where they live. People can learn how to do so by visiting the June 10 Allegany Garden Festival. For more information about the group, visit www.

Beat on the Street: What is the Newest Summer Fun Thing You’ve Discovered the You Can’t Wait to Do?

By Chad Neal Memorial weekend just passed, the official day we remember the fallen that sacrificed everything to give us the freedom we enjoy. That weekend is also the unofficial start of summer, the weather warms up, the green gets greener, the flowers bloom, the sun shines and radiates the air so that it is comfortable to wear shorts and tee shirts. If you’re like most people just about every weekend is spoken for in the summer months. Plans to enjoy the short amount of time up here in the northern parts of the world are set because, summer calls for enjoying the weather. Even though we want the heat, it can be unbearable at times and we have to cool off, whether it’s in a body of water, in an air-conditioned room, or with a refreshing cold drink, these are all included in the planning of the summer activities. Even though here in ski country, the outdoors is enjoyed in the winter, the summer shows more bodies out of doors in less clothing doing several things. I’m sure many people agree the warmer season is more comfortable than the colder ones, but finding enjoyment in all of the seasons is what Ellicottville is about. And more and more is being offered every summer in our bubble of awesomeness. What is the newest summer fun thing you’ve discovered that you can’t wait to do?
