— Town meeting notes

Town Supervisor Evelyn Wood announced that there were over 40 applications submitted for the position of town hall janitor. Only top choices were interviewed, but every applicant received a letter. Hired for the position was Donna Knickerbocker at $7.59 per hour for nine hours per week.

The town board authorized the town justice to hire Linda Moffitt as the new town court clerk at $12.50 per hour. She will take over for Tonya Springer who resigned from her position.

A resolution was passed with three votes cast authorizing the supervisor to enter into a contract with the Warrensburg Emergency Medical Services, not to exceed $25,000 for coverage for the remaining five months of the year. The motion was approved with three Yes votes cast by town board members Al Vasak, Becky Hitchcock and Evelyn Wood. A No vote was cast by Leon Galusha. Board Member Charles Bills was absent.
