— •Heard that the state Department of Transportation is holding off on repaving Rte. 9 (Main St.) through town and likely to tackle the project this spring;

• Heard from Supervisor Geraghty that less than 100 water meters have yet to be installed. About six weeks ago, 672 of the 1,112 town’s residential water customers had not complied with the mandate to have a water meter installed. He said that town water department employees have installed about 35 meters per workday, and all town employees — clerks, elected officials, and support staff — have put in extra effort and time to get the conversion project accomplished. Geraghty noted that the installation of water meters has prompted people to conserve water, and the savings is likely to be remarkable, in the long run, to both the town taxpayers and the water customers.
