The petitioner was <br /> requesting a Text Amendment to the Zoning Ordinance to permit a non- <br /> ferrous_ aluminum mold casting business in 1 -1 , Restricted Industrial <br /> District, at 190 Kelly Street. <br /> Ted Szafraniec was present to represent the petitioner. Szafraniec <br /> began his presentation by noting that standard non-ferrous foundries <br /> were not allowed in the Village because they tended to involve' a dirty <br /> process . He stated that his business would be more modern with automated <br /> equipment. Szafraniec added that the modern process involved no odors , <br /> smoke, or air pollution. <br /> Szafraniec next noted that the older process presented a problem <br /> with exposed molten metals. He stated that the process used in his <br /> aluminum casting business would involve a closed casting mold. <br /> Szafraniec also stated that the casting process to be utilized in <br /> his business would require a smaller and more skilled work force than <br /> the traditional type of non-ferrous operation. He continued by adding <br /> that the back yards with scrap metal usually associated with such <br /> businesses would not exist in the proposed business since the bars of <br /> aluminum utilized would be kept inside. <br /> Szafraniec concluded his presentation by noting that Poly-Tech <br /> Industries had examined the equipment to be used in the business and <br /> recommended approval of the Text Amendment. <br /> Mullen began the questioning by asking if there would be any fumes <br /> at all involved with the proposed cast molding process. Szafraniec <br /> responded by noting that the use of an electric furnace eliminated fumes . <br />
