Home : Friday Memo






To:                  Town Board Members

From: John Olson, Town Administrator

Date:   September 26, 2014    



Please take time to read this week’s Friday Memo- -a general recap of the week and upcoming news.  As always, should you like more information, I ask that you call the office, e-mail or stop in.  Thanks for your continued support. 



  1. Roofing Contractors have been on-site this week working on the new roof for Town Hall.  The chimney will need to be removed and 1 window replaced which is not covered by the hail claim.  The contractor is estimating an additional $2,000 for that work.    
  2. The Finance Committee will meet next Wednesday following the PW Committee to review the 2015 Budget and consider a response from the Police Union for the 2014-2016 Contract.
  3. McGrath Consulting will be meeting with the Fire Dept at Town Hall on Monday at 4:00pm to give feedback on the department’s comments submitted in response to McGrath’s draft report on Fire Equipment/Inventory.  Ryan and I will be present and other interested board members are invited and welcome to attend as well.  I would expect the final report will be available within a few weeks.
  4. The Finance Committee has recommended the additional road work for the 2015 budget.  The additional 200K will be financed over 10 years through a State Trust Fund loan or a local bank note.
  5. All Assessed Values for the Town are available online at accurateassessor.com.  No objections filed at Board of Review this year. 
  6. The Highway Shop is a “free drop-off site” for Waste Oil that is used for heating purposes.  We are currently in low supply.
  7. The Halloween Party is scheduled for Sunday, October 26 from 3-5pm in Community Park.  Trick or Treating will be on Friday, October 31 from 5-8pm.
  8. Enjoy your weekend!
