Batavia delays final vote on Campana apartment propsal
The Batavia City Council decided Monday to delay until Nov. 6 its final vote on a proposal to put apartments in the Campana building.
And it will talk about the proposal one more time, at a special committee of the whole meeting at 7 p.m. Oct. 30.
The vote was 7-6 to delay the vote, with Alderman Nick Cerone absent.
Aldermen said they wanted more information and to have more questions from the community answered.
They also set a deadline for people to submit those questions: 5 p.m. Friday.
Questions should be sent to the city administrator's assistant, Anthony Isom, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
On Oct. 10, the committee of the whole voted 9-5 in favor of the project.
Alderman Alan Wolff was one of the "no" votes on the delay. "We could have 75 more questions," he said.
Alderman Michael Russotto said he only wanted answers discussed Oct. 30 "because we have debated this hours, days."
A developer wants to put 80 apartments in the former factory, which is on the National Register of Historic Places and is near where Fabyan Parkway crosses the Fox River. The majority would be designated for government rent subsidies.
