The town will hold a Sounds of the Season concert, here at town hall on Thursday December 18th. At 7:30 pm. Town Resident Mrs. Carol Fox will direct the Fulton Community Band; this is the same band that played at the towns Ice Cream Social a few years back and was so popular it was decided to have them back again. Refreshments will be served, and you are all invited to attend an evening of Holiday Music. Tell your friends. It should be a great evening.

I will be meeting with the county and several Supervisors, legislators and Assessors Wednesday. The county has received a grant to do a study on Property Assessments.

Since the town has gone though a re-val recently, I would like to bring questions and some concerns relating to the assessment process. Also, I have a meeting with the county Treasurer on Tax collection on Thursday; I will have a report for the board after these meetings.

We sold two cemetery lots in November and had two burials. The new roof and addition to the cemetery building is nearing completion, we obtained a grant from Senator Aubertine for this project and the town is thankful for his assistance.

Our code enforcement officer issued 11 building permits and made 18 inspections in October and November.

Our Dog Control officer investigated 9 complaints in November and issued one summons.

We are getting ready to close out our finical year and will file our year end reports with the State Comptroller.
