As expected and stated on the agenda, the Town Board approved that $14.5K proposal for Princeton Hydro’s Fred Lubnow to look at all the studies and propose a restoration plan for Lake Peekskill. Bob-O was talking faster than JA to get through the meeting. There was no discussion at all. It was merely a formality. Bob-O said that it was necessary, but that is an outright lie. He also said that there were 2 lengthy discussions by the community. The minutes are posted on the Lake Peekskill wordpress site. They appropriately represent the confusion that has been expressed since the January 31 district meeting. JA knows that there was dissent and confusion about this proposal. We have to assume that she doesn’t care. The others probably don’t know, and we have to assume that they also don’t care. It seems that the only reason for the district meeting was for JA to deliver the vote.
A resident has supplied a plan, also posted on the Lake Peekskill wordpress site. The low oxygen at deep levels and nutrient loading should be addressed come Spring if indeed Spring does come. Perhaps some of us can present proposals on those. Will anyone listen?
Aside from LP, Bob-O said that the Planning Federation Conference is required training. It is not. It is appropriate for the PB and ZBA members to go, so why lie about it?
He adjourned the meeting to go into executive session, but you are supposed to have an open meeting to go into executive session, but he has more interest in backroom discussions than in the law.
It’s only a 9 minute meeting, and it does illustrate well how your local government works, so you might want to watch it.
