Maxwell Appraisal Service has completed the re-val for the town of Oswego. Over 2000 properties were revaluated. The Town held meetings over the last several months to explain to the public and they were well attended. Now the public has the opportunity to meet with Maxwell appraisal to go over their appraisal notifications. If you have any question about this process, we are lucky that our Chief Assessor is here tonight. You may address your questions to him.

Our Justices, Jung and Sterio have received a Grant for Computer Case Management in the amount of $ 3,015.96. These funds will go back to the General fund to replenish the modification we made to purchase the soft ware for our Justices, at the end of last year.

I would like to thank Mr. Wilcox and our highway employees for keeping our roads safe and open during the terrible weather we have experienced this winter.

I have been invited by New York State Rural Water to their annual Technical Conference. If another member of the board would like to go and investigate a town wide sewer district, please see me after the meeting.

Public Comment: Highway Superintendent Mark Wilcox reported that he has been notified by the DEC that the highway department may no longer do anymore burning of brush. He is currently looking at his options as to how they will handle the brush pick ups.
