Warrensburg Town Board meeting notes

Hull said the lack of clarity and uniformity could cause a substantial problem in case of a serious fire or emergency medical call. Town officials suggested that the address of three properties at the south entrance of the subdivision have their street name changed from Rocky Ridge to Rollies Rd.

The Warrensburg Bed and Breakfast Association was awarded $159 from occupancy tax revenue to promote the Warrensburg B&B group website, through the enterprise Network Solutions.

Local real estate agent Gary Cooper suggested that the town construct curbs on more of their streets to minimize parking on sidewalks. Councilman Dean Ackley agreed that vehicles parked on sidewalks was an ongoing problem.

The Warrensburg Chamber of Commerce was granted permission to use the Emerson Town Hall grounds for its annual Arts and Craft Festival, to be held July 10 and 11 this year.

Board members expressed appreciation to Warrensburgh Beautification for plantings they've accomplished in recent weeks throughout the town.

A resolution was granted to authorize the town to pay the Adirondack Park Local Government Review Board $250 in support of their efforts. Since its budget was slashed by 53 percent over the past two years, the Review Board has been forced to seek money from Adirondack towns to bankroll their lobbying effort on behalf of Adirondack residents.

Monday night, the Lake George Village Board approved the same measure, as have other communities.

A resolution was voted on to earmark $48,649 for the sidewalk construction. Board members noted that the sidewalk on the east side of King Street will be torn up because it presents a hazard and potential liability problem for the town. There are no additional grant funds available this year to underwrite more sidewalk repair, although town officials are seeking such funding, officials said.

The town board will hold a public hearing on June 9 at 6:45 p.m. to review whether Hickory Hill Ski Center can tap into water from the Schroon River for snowmaking purposes. As the board members expressed support for the concept, approval of the initiative is expected that evening. The board voted unanimously May 12 to grant an easement along Hickory Hill Rd. for the water line.
