Supervisors’ Corner: Meeting Jan. 12

By Richard “Geezer” Gordon

On Jan.12 the 2011 Town Board organizational meeting will take place at 7  p.m. This should take about a half hour. The regular meeting will begin right after.

On the agenda is a vote by the board on the local law for two retirees to be paid a buyout instead of taking the insurance. There was a resolution approving this in 2008 but it is illegal without a local law.    I also want to consider our options with the Troy Shirt Factory project. The board borrowed $140,000 in 2009 to clean up the contaminated dirt.     See you at the meeting on Jan. 12 at 7 p.m. 

Also Richard Corsetti has requested to do a presentation for the use of the armory. He has investors interested and he is adamant this will benefit Whitehall and its growth.

I would be remiss if I didn’t listen to every option we have to improve the community and economy. This does not mean the Skenesborough Firehouse is out. That is still proceeding forward. I just want to explore and consider our options and do what is best for Whitehall.

We have spent approximately $90,000, and now we have another estimate of $194,000 to finish the project. I am going to suggest to the board to fill in the hole, grade the property and wait for the state to mandate for it to be cleaned and to provide the money to do it.
We never got the $50,000 grant we were told we would get. I will not vote to borrow any more money for this project.
