Minutes West Norwalk Association Board of Directors Meeting
June 5, 2006
Directors in attendance: David Frishkorn, Louis Santos, Joe Sette, Peggy Yff, Joan Dane, Ron Paladino, and Jim Forcellina. Bob Wagman, Director Emeritus
Call to order: 7:45. Minutes of 5/1/06 approved. Treasurer’s report showed a balance of $1, 655.72 and approved.
Plantings at both sites: Fillow/Hunters and Fillow/Fox Run. Joe Sette elaborated on this issue and the willingness of the owner of 4 Pazzi to finance the plantings with appropriate signs advertising the restaurant. Our position is that the neighbors, in the vicinity of the proposed plantings do not want any type of advertising. Thus, we will not avail ourselves of the financial donation from 4 Pazzi and Peg will send a letter to this effect to the restaurant owner. Planting should begin in September. Need to recall DPW to remind them to remove the asphalt.
