The Village of Kings Point Board of Trustees approved repairs for a village salt storage shed on Monday night, describing its state as an “emergency situation.”

Trustees approved the issuance of $85,000 in serial bonds to pay 3D Constructs to fix the salt shed, which is located at a Department of Public Works site on Kings Point Road.

“It is very critical for our operation,” Mayor Michael Kalnick said.

In unrelated business, officials passed a bill to formally change the name of the Architectural Review Committee to the Architectural and Preliminary Site Review Board.

Stephen Limmer, the village attorney, said that the change was made because the committee needed a secretary and that the civil service would only approve of a board hiring the extra hand.

“The name of the committee had to be changed to a board to get civil service approval,” Limmer said, noting there were other minor changes made to the structure as well.

Trustees also introduced laws concerning the registration of rental dwellings, placing fencing around swimming pools and parking fines.

One bill would require the registration of rental dwellings with the building superintendent. According to a draft of the legislation, it aims to “assure that all rental dwelling units are safe, to provide necessary information for essential communications between emergency responders and tenants in the event of an emergency, and to prevent illegal rentals.”

Another bill would amend a Kings Point law, which currently mandates that fences be placed around pools in an effort to prevent accidental drownings, to say that fencing should meet requirements in state fire prevention and building code.

A separate bill would increase the maximum fine for a parking violation in the village from $300 to $500.

Gomie Persuad, the village clerk-treasurer, said that the next public hearing will be on Jan. 25.
