CARTHAGE — The village Board of Trustees in July denied a request to lease land around its reservoir in Belfort.

In December, Ernest L. Prievo, water superintendent, suggested leasing the 500 acres to better supervise the area. He reported that people were trespassing and that hunters were interested in using the land.

After doing some research, the water superintendent said, he had some qualms about leasing the property. He also said access to the property could be gated at one point, which would eliminate some of the problems.

The board directed Mr. Prievo to put up the gate and continue to patrol the area.
