•Trustees will hold two public hearings on Monday, April 4, as part of the Village Board's monthly work session. The first will concern the 2001-12 budget, which trustees caution is likely to include a tax increase.
"We're doing due diligence and trying to keep it as low as possible," Mayor Terry Collesano says.
The current budget is $2,931,181, and the tax rate is $6.24 per $1,000 of assessed valuation.
The second public hearing involves a proposal to adjust parking on Tuesday nights to better accommodate patrons attending the free "Tuesday in the Park" concert series at Artpark, and those neighbors affected by traffic jams and pseudo parking lots.
The hearings begin at 6 p.m. at the Village of Lewiston Hall, corner of North Fourth and Ridge streets.
•The Piper Law Office Welcome Center is slated to open on April 29.
The building, formally known as "The Little Blue House," was transported to Academy Park in November 2009 after sitting idle next to the A-Plus gas station on Center Street for many years. It has since been refurbished and will serve as a first stop for tourists.
