Public works projects progressing

The town public works crew welcomes two new employees, Chip Webster and Tracy Benoit. Town Highway employees have been busy cleaning up roadways and taking away landscape debris hauled to the curb by residents, it was reported. A portion of Alden Avenue is now slated for paving. The workers have been busy installing sewer pipe on Library Avenue, which should be finished in a matter of days, Supervisor Geraghty said May 24.

A similar new sewer line is to be installed soon on Thomson Street, he said.

Weather permitting, town workers will be continuing their preparation of the new Youth Football field at the Town Recreation Field for seeding.

At Mark Bruce Park on Hudson Street, town employees have been installing another baseball field. Concerns were raised at the town meeting why nine mature pine trees were removed, and Geraghty replied that they had "red rot" disease and were removed due to safety concerns. New trees will be planted in the fall with help from the Warrensburg Beautification Committee, he said.

Discussion occurred over standardizing the Chamber's rules and town regulations on what can and should be sold during the World's Largest Garage Sale, including such problematic items as firearms, knives, animals and reptiles. A public hearing was set for 6:45 p.m. June 8 to discuss the issue.
