“Regular” Town Board Meeting, December 17, 2014
The Board met in an executive session with Putnam Humane Society. Does anyone know what it is that they are planning to do and when they are doing it?
Bob-O took the blame for hiring Bill Zutt, who is now retiring, and assigned blame to Mr. Zutt for recommending Peekskill GOP favorite, Bill Florence.
SamO is retiring. He says that the Peekskill Hollow Road project is going forward, $7 million. Has anyone seen the plans for the bridge? Or for that matter, the drainage work at Oregon Corners?
SO says that there is a buyer for George’s SuperStation.
Harris Mandel and George Olsen are retiring from volunteer work at the library. The library is open. Use the vehicular bridge as a footbridge.
The board imposed a civil penalty against 2 homeowners, and apparently there is more of this unorthodox lack of due process planned. All board members voted for it.
They authorized an unbudgeted water test at the museum.
There was an announcement about plastic recycling in Lake Peekskill, and I think a letter going out. It was confusing. You can’t put the plastic in plastic bags? And no frozen food containers? Is that even if they are the correct recycling numbers? And something about plastic caps? Was that just that they have to be removed from the bottles? I know they don’t take Styrofoam packaging, even though they take Styrofoam. And no shredded paper?
Hopefully it will become clearer.
PS. Bill Zutt wants the board to change the zoning code so that a veterinarian can rent at the blue building.
