SPECIFIC REQUESTS

Don Rhodes, Laberge Group, informed the Board that Oak Street reconstruction was nearly complete and projected to be $130,000 under budget.  Mr. Rhodes also presented a preliminary site plan of the River St pump station reconstruction.  Saratoga County denied the request to move the pump station due to the need to keep the County right of way clear.  Based on the current plans the project would go to bid in July with a Fall award.  The new design will allow easier servicing of the pumps and include self-cleaning cutters.  The old building will be used to house the controls and generator.

David Harney, Ash Street, spoke of property maintenance issues with a home on Fourth Street, including feral cats, running water in the backyard and rotting materials in the yard.  Insp Berg will visit the property regarding the materials in the yard; Supt Lozier will check on the running water.
