Zoning Officer Mel Lascola reported the JIF for the town garage was done and sent to the APA. We are in special use district and it will have to go in front of the ZBA and Planning Board. It will have to be put in the paper to do in December.
Supervisor Wilt said because this was a major project in Town it has to go before the Lake George. Lake Champlain Regional Planning Board.
Lascola asked if there has been anything done on the Septic Law, Supervisor Wilt said it was sent to the Town Attorney.
