Warrensburg town board notes

WARRENSBURG Steve Parisi, president of the Warrensburgh Historical Society, reported that the town crews have started alterations to the upstairs rooms to be used for archival storage at the Warrensburgh Historical Museum. Rough sanding of the main room has been completed by contractor John Parker. Final sanding and finishing of the floor has been delayed until after all alterations by the town crew are completed. At its annual meeting in February, the Warrensburg Historical Society added three new members to its board of directors, Lenore Smith, Dennis Martinez and Paul Gilchrist. Parisi said that they have prepared a Powerpoint presentation about the Society and the Museum which they would be pleased to show any community organization that requests it. The society has received a grant of $7,000 from the Charles R. Wood Foundation to be applied to the professional restoration of the Warrensburgh Mural. They will announce plans for a fundraiser for the remaining $7,000 needed for this project, which is hoped to be completed this summer. In February, the town board awarded two occupancy tax grants. One for the Warrensburg Bed and Breakfasts in the amount of $710 to place an ad in conjunction with Warren County in Better Homes and Gardens Magazine, and the second grant was to the chamber of commerce for the garage sale in the amount of $5,710.89. At the end of the February board meeting, a few residents spoke up about the police department, asking what had happened to the officers. The board informed the audience that one officer retired and the other has taken a full time job. A public hearing was set for Wednesday, April 11 at 6:45 p.m. to hear comments on the proposed local law regarding transient merchants. This law would allow vendors to display up to two temporary signs. A complete copy of this proposed law is available from the town clerk.
