Town Board changes annual meeting date

The Town of Belgium was scheduled to hold its annual meeting this month but the Board on Monday decided to postpone it.

Town Chairman Tom Winker said the town is not required by law to hold the annual meeting this month because of the coronavirus.

Provisions were already taken at the meeting due to the virus. Town Board members sat farther away from each other than usual, and a few chairs for the public were placed several feet from one another. Only one resident attended.

The board changed the meeting to 7 p.m. Tuesday, May 12.

“These are unprecedented times. I don’t know how else to say it,” Winker said.

The Board of Review is scheduled for 5 to 7 p.m. Tuesday, June 9.

E-cycle day is still on

The town and village of Belgium’s e-cycle day is not being changed. It is scheduled from 9 a.m. to noon Saturday, May 16.

A new company will be providing dumpsters. Keirmar of Fredonia will bring two 20-yard dumpsters and will provide staff free of charge.

The town and village will split the $5,000 in savings.

Schmidt named to Plan Commission

Town Chairman Tom Winker appointed Brian Schmidt to the Plan Commission on Monday.

Schmidt replaces Larry Bares, 72, who died on Jan. 23.

“He did a lot of good things for the Town of Belgium,” Winker said, praising Bares’ many years on the commission and for being a “voice of reason.”
