Community Center Update

The two birch trees planted out front are dead and the contractor is sending the company that planted them up to look at them and replace them as they are under warranty.

Septic Systems

Guy Middleton reported that the person he will be having speak at a Town Board meeting is available for the August meeting. Supervisor Webb asked if Guy would check and see if it could be rescheduled to the September Board meeting.

New Sign for Building

There was nothing to report as Councilman Lyon was detained downstate for work.

Open Discussion

Michelle Brown Garcia stated she read in the "Mail Boat" that Friends of Eagle Island were having the Land Use Code amended. Supervisor Webb stated there has been no formal request to amend the Land Use Code. Once there is one, it will have to go before the Town's Planning Board. If the Planning Board recommends the change, there must be a Public Hearing on the amendment, the Town Board would then have to adopt it as a change to the local law and it would have to be filed with the Secretary of State.

Michelle Brown Garcia also inquired as to who is doing the Dog Control for the Town. We are contracted with the Tri Lakes Humane Society in Saranac Lake. The contact information is on the Town's website.
