The Town of Newstead Board is not holding a work session this week due to Monday being a holiday for Martin Luther King Jr. Day. In a work session last Monday, board members decided they would have their final recommendations on the proposed Special Events Law in writing to Town Supervisor David Cummings by Thursday. The plan is to have the law hashed out by the end of the next meeting on Monday, Jan. 27, with a public hearing on the law to follow in February.

Also this week:

• The Akron Central School Board of Education meeting scheduled for Wednesday at 7 p.m. has been cancelled. The next meeting is scheduled for Wednesday, Feb. 5 at 7 p.m. at Akron High School, 47 Bloomingdale Ave., Akron.
