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.
The Lake Committee has recommended placing a Water Quality Research Buoy to be placed in the “deep hole” near the middle of the lake. It is foam construction with dimensions of 3’ in height (above water) and 4’ in diameter. Future meetings scheduled for discussion and consideration by the board will be the Board Meeting, next Tuesday at 6:00pm. More details are posted on our website’s homepage under “Latest News & Notices.”
You will also be considering a recommendation from the Admin Committee at Tuesday’s Board Meeting for a Personal Property Tax Audit proposed by Accurate Appraisal (Town Assessor) for $2000. The proposed schedule for the work is to begin the week of June 17 and will audit all Personal Property accounts for 2013 taxes which are due 1-31-14. It has been many years since the information has been audited and the new PP Tax Roll amounts will be kept updated in future years as well. Letters will be mailed out to all businesses with Personal Property to notify them of the audit.
Next Wednesday at 8:30am, Mike Petkoff and I will be meeting with the City of Delavan to recommend an engineering firm for the Borg Rd. Bridge replacement project. We have received summaries of qualifications from several firms and are available for you to review if desired. Let me know if you have any interest in participating in the selection process….thanks.
You will also be considering the Finance Committee’s recommendation to hire a FT Police Officer at the Board Meeting.
