Variance for garage granted in city

The city zoning hearing board Thursday granted a variance to a city couple building onto an attached garage at their Woodmont Avenue residence.

James Maiolo and Janet Wolyniec were granted the setback variance in order to add an addition to the garage at 1201 Woodmont Ave., said Gary Knarr, city zoning officer.

The couple plan to use Eagle Construction to build the garage. Voting in favor were Marylou Baldys, chairwoman; Linda Crockett, Mary Zeitler, William Miele and Judy Sarett.
