Town Clerk's Report: July monthly money to the supervisor was $1664.86, total $2032.25. Last week I attended classes at Cornell University for Certified Municipal Clerks, which was a great learning experience, this is a three-year course. I am looking into the possibility of selling passports for the town. The Board of Elections sent a letter regarding voting on campus. The student association president has until August 20 to respond. A board needs to be placed at the Alliance Church for easy access into the voting room, this was suggested by the Board of Elections and suggested that the town take care of this matter.

The town historical society will meet on Tuesday, August 10 at 6:00 PM to discuss their upcoming yard sale and take a tour of two local cemeteries at 6:30 PM. Our building inspector will not be available this Friday or Monday.

Supervisor's Report:
Deputy Supervisor Tim DeSacia reported we had many complaints on dogs and the building inspectors.

Public Comment:
Highway Superintendent reported the town will be all set with the county for salt and sand for this winter, he will place an order before August 31st before the rates go up. The fire station is coming along nicely and maybe ready for October 1, 2004.
