I would like to thank Debbie Hogan for filling in for me in April as I was with my new granddaughter.

Supervisor's Report: The roof at Town Hall needs to be brought up to manufactures specifications, Barton and Loguidice our engineers, are handling it with the builders.

Our code enforcement officer issued 6 building permits and made 9 inspections; he also has started the required fire safety inspections on business and public assemblies.

He has received his required continuous training in April.

The cemetery is open and we have sold one cemetery lot in April and had 2 burials.

Our Dog Control Officer had 17 complaints in April. The town board will be discussing the possibility of starting another Dog Census this summer. Please remember to license your dogs to avoid fines.

The Association of Oswego County Supervisors held our quarterly meeting here in the Town of Oswego at Alexandra's Steak House, on Route 104 . This association was formed several years ago to promote the sharing of ideas, information, and resources in the spirit of cooperation for mutual success. The notion of "shared services" is the latest buzzword in Albany; the Association of Supervisors has been putting this idea into practice for years. The meeting featured a program on emergency communications, presented by former Onondaga County Legislative Chairman William Sanford.
Grievance Day will be Tuesday May 27th from 9 am-11 am and 5-8pm
