Hebron town board

The Hebron Town Board held its regular meeting Monday, June 13 in the West Hebron meeting hall. The board meets regularly on the second Monday of each month at 7:30 p.m.

“The donkey is very happy now, he has a new home,” Hebron’s animal control officer Jessica Barrett told the board. 

Robert D. Wilson, 37, was charged by State Police in early June with misdemeanor cruelty to animals, accused of failing to provide food and water to a donkey.

The donkey is recovering at his new home, she said.

Barrett said she had been busy recently with a number of calls regarding horses running loose.

Board member Tom Rogers told the board the town has received permission to use the pool at Camp Hebron for the swim program.

Rogers said the town entered into an agreement to rent the facility for a $100 donation which would be used to pay for a new cover for the pool. Because the parents are advised to remain during the one-hour swimming lessons, Rogers said the program does not need a nurse or an EMT further reducing the cost of the program. About 50 kids were expected to utilize the program.

Also at the meeting, the board considered upgrading a front end loader used by the highway department.

During his report to the board, town highway superintendent Floyd Pratt said he received a good offer from a heavy equipment dealer and asked the board for their input. Pratt said the used machine had good resale value, allowing the town to get a good deal when buying at the state contract price. The board instructed Pratt to look into a trade as well as gauge the market value of the loader. “We’re just trying to avoid the big bill,” board member James Flint said.

The board briefly adjourned from the regular meeting to speak in executive session regarding pending legal matters.

Town assessor Lois Jasek requested the executive session; nothing was resolved in the session and no decisions were announced afterwards.    

The board decided against buying a second license for computer software for the court system.

At a cost of $1,800 in addition to an annual cost of $800, the board decided having a second computer with the software for Justice Marvin Day was too expensive.

Nancy Fitzpatrick told the board the town’s e-newsletter was up to 78 subscribers including one member of the media, the reporter for the Granville Sentinel.
