Town Clerk's Report: May monthly money to the supervisor was $1883.53, total for the month $2,302.15. The Historical Society will meet on June 28th for a walk through the Rice Family Cemetery and the Carter-Squire Cemetery at 6:30 PM. I won a $150.00 scholarship to attend the International Institute for Municipal Clerks at Cornell in August. It’s a three-year course and I will then be a certified municipal clerk.

Supervisor's Report: The Teamsters have contacted me; it is that time to start negotiations for the Highway contract I have a tentative date of June 30th to begin.

Tonight we are signing with BARDAN’S to complete our part of the addition to the fire station.

Mary Walkers gravesite has been fixed, thanks to the Coopers, Hogan’s, and Mr. Mullen for all their efforts.

The church next door contacted us about storing their chicken cooker on the back corner of the lot; I have a letter from them holding the town harmless if anything should happen.

Some of us met with members of the zoning board and heard their concerns about our zoning laws. We are in the process of completing the comprehensive plan and will meet again when that is completed.

We are having a public hearing on the sale of town properties that can go back on the tax rolls in July.

I have received the asbestos’s survey from B&L and will make copies for the board members.


The town assessors received a 100 assessment values of properties in the town and we are pleased at their continued good work!

We will be meeting in Executive session after tonight’s meeting, no actions will be taken, and the purpose is contract negotiations.

Public Comment: Highway Superintendent Carter gave a report about his highway training school, many new changes coming on soil and water, permits will be needed for any land disturbance of more than an acre. Highway worker Darlene Galvin is back to work maybe having further surgery. Questions were asked about the sale of town property and how much land is on the Engles property. Has the Southwest Community Center been appraised? Mr. Carter is meeting with Barrett paving to see if they would donate paving for the new addition to the fire station. They do this kind of donations. Board members Pritchard and Mahaney asked if the Fire Department was having any special event on July 1st? Supervisor Mullen gave them a plaque at their regular meeting.
