Village to host hearing on revising paid parking

(Continued)

The other hearing will be to amend overnight parking regulations.

The trustees also held a public hearing on parking at the recent meeting, voting 7-0 to ban overnight parking in village-owned spaces behind the Cooperstown Fire Hall.

“This is pretty limited,” trustee Bruce Maxson said.

Katz said that historically there have been issues with residents parking in spaces that limited the department’s emergency-response capabilities.

“There were a couple of instances when someone was parked there … and an ambulance couldn’t get out. That’s horrible,” he said.

In other actions, the trustees unanimously voted to:

• Move all village accounts to the Bank of Cooperstown because of higher interest rates. Lou Allstadt recused himself from the vote, which passed, 6-0.

• Go to bid on village sales of banners at Doubleday Field. The Cooperstown Hawkeyes, a previous tenant at the field, had the right to sell banners, but the village had not sold its own banners. The trustees also voted buy the website domain www.doubledayfield.com from Todd Kenyon. Kenyon had told the village that he would sell it at cost, believed to be about $100.

• Rename the Chestnut Street Parking Lot as the Fowler Way Parking Lot.
