Elementary School be reopened in September 1987 to handle the increased number of elementary students living in the.district. The FM school board will hold a public hearing, focused on the recommendation, at 7:30 p.m. Monday, November 17 at Wellwood Middle School Au­ ditorium. The board plans to take action on the recommendation at its December 1 meeting. Elementary school enroll­ ment in the district declined steadily between 1972-73 and 1983-84 When it' reached 1,046 students. Since then it has in­ creased.by 13 per cent to 1,182 this year and is projected to reach 1,293 ;in 1987-88.

East Genesee St., which in- ciijdes Fays Drug Store, Service Merchandise and Wegmans. -jn its legal action, Ames claims that the total value of the seven tax parcels that make up the shopping plaza is $1,525,130 and not the $8,056,000 value as­ signed by DeWitt assessors. The store also claims the total assessment of $503,500 ought to be reduced to $95,325, a loss of $408,175 on the tax base; The same property is also involved in Proper Limit Eludes Officials, Fayetteville officials would like the speed-limit on Rt. 5 re­ duced to 35 mph to the eastern village limit, five mph less than / recommended by the state Dept. / /^Transportation. X The idea was endorsed by a / Brookside resident who was v at- tending Monday's meeting with his Cub Scout pack. In addition, trustees suggested at their November 10 meeting that the speed limit should be r-educed from 55 mph to 40 mph to east of the Green Lakes State Park entrance and will ask the Town of Manlius to cooperate^with the village in seeking the reduction. Village officials, asked DOT recently to* reduce\ the speed limit, now 55 .^nph,.to v $5 mph easterly to the Village\line-. But after an on-site survey in the be enforced, company of a state police officer *'Why can't you extend the 35/ and Capt. Michael Darmento of (mph speed limit) to the village the Manlius Town Police Dept., limit, and why can't you enforce DOT officials recommended that it?' asked a Brookside resident. a legal action over expansion of Wegmans and construction of a Toys 'R Us store. This proposal has been denied by DeWitt offi­ cials and the town is now consid­ ering rezoning the Genesee St. corridor to exclude new retail businesses. The assessment action con­ tends the DeWitt Plaza assess­ ments are 33 per cent of the full value of the property instead of the 6.25 per cent that prevails elsewhere, according to legal papers filed by attorneys for Ames. The challenge states the \as­ sessment is unequal...and such inequality exists not only in specific instances but generally throughout the assessment rolls of-DeWitt.\ If the challenge goes to trial, the town is responsible for pay­ ing legal fees, appraisals, and any settlement that is granted. Jack Gallagher, attorney for DeWitt, says the town only re­ ceives about 17 cents of each property tax dollar collected, while the Jamesville-DeWitt School District receives between 50 and 60 cents and the rest goes to the county. In spite of the way the tax re­ venue is split, the entire cost of defending assessment law suits is borne by town taxpayers, be­ cause the assessment is done by a town official. According to Bob Boulware, business manager for the Jame8ville -DeWitt School Dis­ trict, if the challenge is success­ ful. JD would lose more than $1 million in tax revenue. Money already collected through the assessment, if judged incorrect, would have to be repaid to the property owner. the village extend its 30 mph limit east from Tracy's lumber yard to Redfield Dr. and that a 40 mph speed limit be estab­ lished between Redfield Dr. and the easterly village limit, near Duguid Rd. Currently, the speed limit, changes from 35 mph to 55 mph just east of the Brookside entr­ ance, too close to the entrance to. expect traffic to be traveling at 35 mph, police say. State officials dubbed the 35 mph limit between Tracy's and Brookside \unrealistic\ because it is routinely ignored, by motorists and cannot effectively He said a left turn from Rt. 5 into Brookside at : rush hour/ while\ facing fast^oying.-westbound traffic and \vithf.fa^s>mp.ving eastbound traffic passing bn-$ht$ right, is a senousyprobjem. \I don't think the st&te^svre- commendation isfludicroias' rioiW' that- /»v«aw ^*T ^&v{vi»viVft said! mmn Nativity Scene Donations are being solicited to purchase a Nativity scene for \display during thehoIiday r sea- r son on the green near the gazebo ' facing East Seneca St. in Man- -iius.
