The Committee to rebuild the playground at the Corinth Elementary School is planning on holding a carnival in the fall to raise funds.  They wish to use Jessup’s Landing Park and have asked for a donation from the Village.  The Board expressed their support for the committee’s project and will consider their plans as more details become available.  Clerk/Treas Colson will inquire as to what insurances would be necessary to hold a carnival at the park.

Mayor Winslow explained the restructuring of the DPW Department.  With the expanding requirements for licensing to operate water systems, and the upcoming demands of operating and overseeing the new water filtration plant, it has become necessary to separate the Water and Sewer Departments from the DPW.  Supt Lozier has agreed to accept the position of Water/Sewer Superintendent and the Board has advertised for a DPW Superintendent to supervise the road and parks crews.
