PELHAM MANOR, N.Y. Town Supervisor Joseph Solimine will soon retire after 22 years of service to Pelham. Some Pelham officials decided to express their appreciation before he does.
The Pelham Manor Board of Trustees honored Solimine with some words and an official resolution at Monday nights meeting. Mayor James OConnor said that Solimines work will not end even though he is retiring.
Joe is, and has been, an extremely active member of the Pelham community and Im sure will continue to be one, OConnor said.
A proclamation honoring Solimine will be presented to him at a special dinner Friday night.
The board also approved a resolution that designated the Pelham Manor Firehouse as the only official polling place for the next village election on March 20, 2012. The village typically uses the fire station as the only voting spot each year.
OConnor said that two trustee positions will be up for election in March. The board passed a resolution to that effect at a previous meeting.
An attendee at the meeting raised concerns during public comment. Judge Joseph Giamboi inquired about a new, approximately 10,000 square foot home that is to be built near Elm Tree Lane and Beech Tree Lane. The judge said the building could be three stories high.
Village manager John Pierpont said the property is 100 percent in Bronx boundaries and that New York City has not rezoned the area. State law requires them to notify a neighboring municipality if they were to do so, but he said he has not received any notice from New York City.
