Town Council Recap - June 6, 2018

The recap of the Town Council meeting held on Wednesday, June 6, 2018 is as follows:

  • Special recognition for James Pentikis, a student at FHS, for his work helping to prepare the FY 2019 budget documents.
  • The annual committee and board appointments for the new fiscal year was approved after an amendment to remove the appoint of the ZBA member. A new assessment of candidates for this position will be taken before bringing the appointment back to the Council.
  • The 4th of July Committee provided an update on the schedule for the coming event. It will be bigger and better than last year as the committee has had additional time to plan. Fireworks will return this year. The police and fire departments are still working out details for crowd control as the launching site will be one of the new softball fields at FHS. A mailer is about to be sent to all residents with info on the schedule and a request for donations.
  • A long listing of legislation was approved, some for final approval and some for referral to the Planning Board. The complete listing can be found in the notes and Actions Taken document below.
  • The final approvals for the remaining free cash allocations will be on the next agenda. Approx. $500,000 remains after the snow/ice shortfall was covered. This remaining money would likely be used for other items on the Capital budget not funded in the first round earlier this year.
  • The proposal to address the parking problem caused by the Dean College students is also supposed to be on the scheduled for the next meeting.
