Unfinished Business:

  • We were unsuccessful for the third time in receiving one of the Greater Rochester Health Foundation grants in the spring 2017 cycle.  At the last meeting, Supervisor Donohue introduced the possibility of the town going ahead with this project regardless of funding.  We are interested in installing five independent play items at Ricky Greene Memorial Park:  a log roll, a track ride, a four section climbing wall, a spin about, and a tetherball game.  The cost was first quoted as $19979.  APC Play reduced the cost at my request (due to not getting the grant) to $19,357.   A second request to lower the cost further resulted in a quote for $18,857.  This is an additional discount offered by APC Play if approved by May 19.


New Business:

  •  Betty Greene reported that the Kelleman log cabin at Ricky Greene Memorial Park is showing signs of rot. She is requesting that the Town Board seeks restoration advice and services.
  • Norm Sparks, Caretaker for Arnold Cemetery, has reported that there is a section near the front of the cemetery that needs to be cleared. 
  • Bob Nilsson has reported that there is a retaining wall for scrap metal in need of repair at the recycling center.  The ticket booth will need to be replaced or have major overhaul soon.  The employees at the center have been saving up lumber for repairs to this building. 
  • Approval of Debra Tucker as an alternate for the Zoning Board of Appeals


Comments are welcome at this time.
