Q - Thanks for including the public in obtaining feedback. Is there any budget impact for these action items?
A - Yes, there is potential for budget but that would require coming back here for approval and include what ever other Town departments approval would be required.
Jeff adds that we do have 1.7 million in our Open Space and Recreation account for purchase of open space that comes onto the market. If there is something simple we can do, we will. We can also utilize scouting projects and other volunteer efforts to accomplish some of these items.
