Town Clerk’s Report: The total fees for the town clerk account paid to the Supervisor for May was $1766.32, total for the month $2494.70. At my last town clerk conference I attended a class regarding NYS Water & Sewer Infrastructure, there is money for municipalities to go after. This group is under DEC but not governed by the DEC. Also discussion was held on an oath of undertaking which we should do. The Historical Society will be having a craft show/flea market June 21, 2008 at town hall, proceeds to go to the Dr. Mary Walker Fund, the Memorial Day Service was well attended.

Supervisor's Report: A Moment of Silence for Walter Duffy, who passed away, Mr. Duffy, was the Water superintendent here in the town for many years. Mr. Duffy was also a long time member of the Oswego Town Volunteer Fire Dept, served as a fire commissioner for 11 years.

Our Dog Control officer investigated 10 complaints in May. I would like to put out a reminder to town residents that dogs in the Town of Oswego need to be licensed. Failure to license a dog will usually carry a large fine.

We sold two lots in our cemetery In May and had 14 burial
Our Building inspector Issued 13 Building permits in May and made 6 inspections.

Mr. DeSacia met with Thomas Aniston, from Barton and Loguidice, Mr. Bouley from Bouley Construction, Brian Matthews from Stober Building Supply and Bruce Garnett the roof installer,, and discussed a course of action to repair the leak in the roof. Maintenance of our buildings is important and always on going.

Mr. Hogan and I will be starting our budget process in July, please start thinking about what you can do without for next year. It is very important to me that we continue to spend for the needs of this town, and not the wants.>

Public Comment: Legislator Malone thanked the town for doing a nice job at the Stevens and Rural Cemeteries. Other comments were can anyone sit in on the grievance board? Whose job is it to repair monuments that are damaged or knock down in the cemetery? What does perpetual care cover?
