To further open government, Kosmider invited Assistant Attorney General Glen Michaels to a recent board meeting. He presented information about making government accessible.
While working on open government, the Crown Point town board has also tackled several other issues.
Remodeling the town court is being planned; the Emergency Preparedness Plan is being studied and about to be reinstituted; the budget reduction committee has been meeting with a goal of cutting the town budget by 10 percent; the town is participating in a NYSERDA Energy Audit, which pointed out areas that need improvement to save money on energy costs; and the town-school committee continues to meet.
"A committee report from Councilman (Bob) Patnode and Councilwoman (Yvonne) Dushane showed a good rapport between the school and the town board, working together for the good of the youth," Kosmider said. "We are currently looking at ways in which we can have a place for the youth to go to after school hours while offering interesting activities for all ages. Interested parents are urged to participate."
