Enjoy the St. Patrick’s Day Parade tomorrow!

Our next Town Council meeting is Monday, March 25th at 7:00pm.  We will have several Executive Session items to discuss.


Morris Lake was 2 inches above the top of the spillway on 3.11.13.

Printing of the 2012 Annual Report has commenced with Minisink Press.

I met with Dr. Sanjay Jain this week, the owner of several properties of significance on Spring Street.  I appreciate his timely response to my recent correspondence and am hopeful that we will start to see some movement on the renting/sale of those properties in the near future.

We spoke to RPM this week and they are continuing their financial due diligence on the proposed project on Spring Street.  I will keep you posted as conditions warrant.

The senior bus is at Family Ford for emergency repairs due to an engine issue and currently the bus drivers are utilizing a school bus.  

Walker Diving has been onsite all week at Fox Hollow Lake completing the inspection of the watermain.  The divers are videotaping the main today and have determined that the watermain has settled and that three joints on the main have loosened.  Upon completion of videotaping today the divers will go back to the shop, and provided they have the materials they need to do the repair, the work will be completed next week.

Routine business was conducted at the monthly Statewide Insurance meeting.

Contract negotiations are still ongoing with both CWA and UPSEU.

Improvements to the Town’s website are still ongoing for a Spring/Summer reboot.

Have a great weekend!
