From the Town Board

Highlights of the April 11, 2018 Monthly Town Board Meeting

To enhance communications with residents, the Town Board will distribute this newsletter with the “headlines” from the board meetings.

This was a routine monthly board meeting. Craig Ivancic, President of the Nick Stoner Trailer Snowmobile Club spoke at the meeting to announce the club has been approved for a grant of over $100,000 toward the purchase of new trail grooming equipment and to thank the Town for its support in the grant process. Lynne Delesky spoke to announce the Town Highway Clean Up day on May 5th starting from 8-9AM at the Town Hall building. She invited all residents to join in to help Caroga look great for the summer.

Resolutions/Local Laws Passed:

  1. Golf Course Management – Approved the calendar 2018 contract for Steve Jennings that is identical to the contract for last year.
