Board discusses Indian Lake cell tower, Blue Mt. Lake pavilion

— Indian Lake Town Supervisor Brian Wells reported at the Town Board meeting Monday, May 14 that Verizon has selected a contractor to build the new cell tower in town.

An on-site meeting was scheduled for Wednesday, May 16. and Wells was expected to be in attendance. His first question was going to be, “When will you have the tower up?”

The cell tower will be built on the Tower Hill Road. The project received approval by the Adirondack Park Agency in April 2011.

Blue Mt. Lake pavilion

In other business, construction of the beach pavilion on Blue Mountain Lake is continuing. Wells said the 90-Miler organization will give the town about $7,500 as a grant to defray some of the costs of building the pavilion.

The project is considered to be a waterfront improvement. Discussions ensued Monday surrounding a public comment suggesting the establishment of a Wi-Fi hot spot at the pavilion. A telephone line is already in the vicinity for use by the lifeguards, and the suggestion was made that a DSL line could be added for summer months. The supervisor said he will investigate the related costs and report back to the board at a future time.

Infrastructure repairs

Wells recognized the fine work of the Highway Department and its contractors in getting Parkerville Road repaired and reopened. Also shared was a letter from Indian Lake Central School Superintendent Mark Brand, on behalf of the School Board, thanking the Town Board and Water Department for the quick repair of the water main that broke under the school. Gratitude was expressed for getting the repair done before classes resumed after spring recess.

Public comments

During the public comment section of the meeting, Bill Murphy informed the Town Board that AmeriCorps will be funding a person to work at the Chamber in developing the Chamber’s website and building a database.
