Murphy pointed out how much he enjoyed the recent Bus Tour sponsored by the Chamber of Commerce, remarking that he got to visit two businesses in town that he had not visited previously. He found the visits enjoyable and they led to a better understanding of the businesses and how they fit into the needs of the community.
Murphy also announced that the Chamber fundraiser/dinner would take place on the evening of May 22.
Adirondack Chair Program
Furthering the “Indian Lake–Have a Seat” Adirondack Chair Program, the board members reviewed an ownership transfer agreement drawn up to overcome concerns about possible liability associated with sponsoring the chairs. The form is designed to officially transfer ownership of the chairs to the town for $1. This transfer is regarding any liability surrounding the use of the chairs by the public. The maintenance, securing and storing of the chairs would still remain the sponsors’ responsibility. Board members approved the submission of the agreement to the insurance company for their review and comment.
In other business, the board received four bids for the purchase and hauling away of scrap metal collected by the town. The bids were received from A+ Hydraulics, C&D Processing, Eastside Metals and Recycling, and Ren Wash Salvage. Given the fact that the bids were all provided on different bases, board members voted to accept all bids for review. The supervisor will contact bidders to get the information needed to judge all bids on a fair and equitable basis by the board.
Councilwoman Stanton announced that there will be a Community Planning Meeting on May 23, 7 p.m. at the Indian Lake Town Hall.
