the young man receiving tonight’s award was out of the area at the time. Chief Patrick
McCarthy was present to present the award to Greg Corbett, Ashton Place, a Canandaigua
Academy Senior who has assisted wheelchair bound individuals. Greg was presented with gift
certificates from the Downtown Business District, the Moose Club, the Canandaigua Teacher’s

Councilmember Reed moved acceptance of the Minutes of the Regular Meeting of June 7, 2001.
Councilmember Baker seconded the motion, unanimously approved by Council.

Recognition of Guests:

Earl Coleates, president of the Boathouse Owners Association, said there was a meeting on June
6th of that organization. They feel that the police have done a fine job taking care of things on
the pier. Mr. Coleates reminded Council about the marker lights on the end of the pier that were
discussed in the past. On June 30th the boathouse owners will clean up along the waters of the
edge of the pier and the city will furnish a truck for this. Mr. Coleates said that the boathouse
owners have a problem with the vendors. They feel they take up too much room and that there
should not be more than two of them. They would like the city to look at the regulations
regarding this some time in the near future. They also believe that from the bathrooms south to
the ice cream vendor there should be no hot-dog vendors because it takes up the prime parking
spaces for boathouse owners. The last thing Mr. Coleates discussed was the possibility of
placing a plaque on the pier explaining the history of the boathouses. Mr. Coleates pointed out
that many visitors to the area ask questions about the boathouses. Councilmember Seager
suggested that a historical marker be placed there. Mayor Polimeni said that there is a historical
marker’s committee and this would be an appropriate task for them.

Councilmember Neiderbach said that he noticed that the lead testing budget appropriation was
for $10,000 and he thought that only $5,000 was spent last year. He asked if they had more
requests than what the $10,000 covered, would the amount be increased to cover it. Mr. Cole
responded that he estimated it would cost $5,000, so he doubled it to make sure there would be
enough money to cover it. He would come back before Council to say that more money is
needed, of course. It is over budgeted, but he wanted to be sure that there was enough money to
cover the testing. Councilmember Neiderbach said that his concern was that the total budget
amount would be about $15,000 now. He would support the passing of this with the
understanding that he has the right to go back later and change it.

Councilmember Fiorentino read a resolution and moved its adoption. Councilmember Rivet
seconded the motion, unanimously approved by Council.

on it. Mayor Polimeni pointed out that about a year was spent planning that parade by the state,
county and city. It also cost a great deal, but it was for the Bicentennial Celebration.

Manager’s Report:

Mr. Cole reported that the City/Town picnic will be held on Thursday, June 28.

Mr. Cole advised that the Packard Event would be held this weekend.

Miscellaneous:

Councilmember Seager discussed a letter from William Mathstone who was concerned about
seasonal hunting adjacent to city wetlands. Councilmember Seager asked that this matter go
back to committee. Mr. Cole responded that no seasonal hunting is allowed there.
Councilmember Seager said that nobody enforces it. Mayor Polimeni said that neighbors in that
area should call the police when they know there is hunting on that property.

Earl Coleates, city resident that was in the audience, pointed out that hunting is legal at Atwater
Meadows Park by DEC regulations because when someone is shooting out over the water, the
500 feet offshore rule is negated. Mr. Coleates said that someone should check with the DEC
regarding this.

Councilmember Reed moved to close the regular meeting at 8:52.         Councilmember Neiderbach
seconded the motion, unanimously approved by Council.
