Town Board Meeting April 28, 2008

The Town Board met on April 28, 2008.
Councilman Dan Castricone was absent.

In his Supervisor’s Update, Peter Dolan gave a general outline of the lawsuit settlement between the Village of Tuxedo Park and Sterling Place (the terms of the settlement can be viewed here). He also announced that new playground equipment has been installed in the Circle Field Playground. The equipment was funded by the PTO and the Town helped with installation and removal of the old equipment. Some of the old equipment may be installed in different playgrounds around Town.

A resolution to accept the dedication of Susan Court was introduced and passed. This is a street in the Mombasha section of Town and this resolution will settle an existing lawsuit.

The Board voted to appoint Regina Maloney as Summer Camp Director. Mrs. Maloney is a 4th Grade Teacher at George Grant Mason Elementary School and a resident in Town. Her husband owns and operates Outback Choppers in Southfields.

By resolution, the Board voted to authorize the Transfer of Ownership of the American Legion building in Southfield to the Town. The Legion retains the right to have meetings there. The Orange County Board of Elections has asked the Town to relocate the voting place for District 2 from the American Legion Hall. Among other reasons, the building is not handicap accessible and doesn’t have any parking. The Board of Elections wanted to relocate this polling place to Town Hall, but the Town Board has opted to move it to the Sterling Forest Firehouse instead so that it will still be physically in District 2.

The Supervisor thanked everyone who had been a part of the Clean Sweep on April 19th. Dale Mottola, Chamber of Commerce President announced that over 200 people participated in the event.

The Highway Department will be hiring three summer workers, Chris McGrady, Matthew Goodfellow and Peter Barba who are all Town residents. Supervisor Dolan also announced that the Town has recently received several grants through State Senator Tom Morahan: $10,000 for dugouts at our local ballfields, $15,000 for an emergency vehicle for the Town Supervisor and $25,000 for a pavilion to be installed at The Lucky recreation area.
