Reported revenues for the month of October. Town Clerk Yvonne Lutz asked to use $4,200 of the balance left in beautification to buy pole decorations, banners, and other decorations to really decorate the Town. With everything going on, it might help lift spirits. She pointed out that we did not spend firework money either this year. Also mentioned that she would like to start a “lights in the park” walkway with Christmas decorations throughout Arrowhead Park. Mentioned maybe local businesses would donate a decoration to sponsor with their name next to it. Some discussion followed.

Supervisor John Frey said the Town tax rate is not increasing, therefore, if your assessment stays the same so will your taxes. Councilman Schmid made a Motion to file a Tax Cap Override just in case. With some New York State calculations, they have determined in the past that we needed to pass this.
