Harold Moffitt was appointed to a position on the Zoning Board of Appeals to fill the unexpired term of Herb Muller who died recently. Moffitt has previously served as an alternate member of the panel, a position which is now open. Applications are now being accepted by the town for alternates on the Zoning Board.
The board also voted to allocate two grants from the town's occupancy tax revenue.
A request for an appropriation of $317 was granted to the Warrensburg Bed and Breakfast group for their website.
A request for $78 was granted to the Warrensburg Historical Society to pay for a banner promoting the local history museum's exhibit Stock Car Racing at Ashland Park. The banner is now in place at the intersection of Diamond Point Road and Rte. 9.
The board also decided to seek the advice of Warren County Soil and Water Conservation District officials to see how a drainage problem behind 85 Library Ave. can be alleviated. The runoff there, a problem for years, is apparently coming from the town recreation field.
The town board discussed a parking problem at the intersection of Main and First streets. The Warren County Head Start van and other vehicles routinely park too close to the intersection, impeding vision of oncoming traffic, town officials reported. The council members decided to contact the state Department of Transportation to address the issue.
Supervisor Geraghty noted that 18 applications were received for two open positions in the town's water and sewer department. The posts require that the successful applicants take training and complete qualifications for sewer licensing.
Discussion occurred on how private plow truck operators cleaning driveways are often leaving behind snowbanks that obstruct sidewalks. The board decided to work with the town Code Enforcement Officer to draft proposed amendments to town ordinances requiring property owners to keep sidewalks clear.
