  • The Dolgeville Village Board of Trustees Monday night passed a resolution to prohibit parking on the north side of West State Street, from the intersection of North Helmer Avenue to the snowmobile trail access point at the old railroad bed.
    The resolution ties into the amended local law governing the use of snowmobiles in the village.
    The change to Local Law No. 3 of 2005, as agreed upon by residents, snowmobile club representatives and village officials in October, established lawful travel by snowmobiles on the north side of West State Street to the trail access point. Under the law, snowmobiles traveling in that area of the village are required to ride in the street along a six foot path at a speed of 10 miles per hour.
    The no parking order will run from 12 a.m. on Dec. 1 through 11:59 p.m. on March 31 and applies to all vehicles.
    “This resolution was not included as part of the local law, but is necessary to enforce the provisions contained within it,” said Village Attorney Norman Mastromoro. “Anyone who is caught violating this order will be subject to penalty in accordance with village traffic law.”
    Mayor Bruce Lyon said that signs will be posted in the area to alert motorists and all others of the no parking provision.
    “We will also send a letter to all residents along West State Street to inform them about the parking situation,” he said.
    In other business Monday:
    •Police Chief Howard Lanphier said that the department is in receipt of four new computers, with two coming through the federal Department of Homeland Security and two coming from the STOP-DWI Association.
    “We had a situation where we were without computers for three days, as the hardware we have all went down at once,” said Lanphier. “It was just a case of the computers being seven and eight years old, so to remedy that I asked around for assistance and luckily we found it.”
    Lanphier said that Bill Reynolds of Performance Computers & Web Design helped get one of the computers up and running for the department, and recommended the village consider the purchase and installation of a server-based system for the police department and village office in the future. “It’s something to think about as we go forward,” the chief said.
    Two of the computers have arrived at the department, with Lanphier scheduled to pick up the other two in the near future.
