9. OLD BUSINESS.

A. INFRASTRUCTURE UPDATE.

(1) Grants. Grant writer Ann Holland was contacted and informed the Town would not be pursuing any grant funding as the bonding for Garage was cancelled. Ms. Holland sent her monthly report to Board members requesting direction. Supv. Keith and Coun. Kretser confirmed the only project the Town would pursue was the purchase and installation of new furnaces for the Town Hall and Garage, covered by a grant. ESE will have a report on the Garage furnace installation by the next meeting.

(2) Grant Funding for new "They Told Me So" Booklet. Supv. Keith contacted the Arts Council for the Northern Adirondacks regarding a third-party endorsement to a grant application+, but that organization has already applied for a grant so was unable to assist. Jean Baltzly suggested contacting the Saranac Lake Free Library. Supv. Keith will follow up.

B. FIRE/RESCUE UPDATE.

(1) Saranac Lake Fire Advisory Board. No progress to report; calls placed to Harrietstown Supervisor Larry Miller, but he was on vacation.

(2) Fire Platforms. Coun. Berg reported that platforms will have to be built by a contractor because they are too large for construction at the Town Garage, as originally planned and must be built on-site. He has the names of several reliable contractors and will be contacting them to obtain quotes.

10. COMMITTEE REPORTS

A. CEMETERY & CELEBRATION COMMITTEES.

(1) Town Memories Day. Town Clerk Oliver reported that August 19th Memories Day was well attended and generated a good bit of interest. People liked the historic photos and documents, and information was exchanged. Attendees encouraged the Town to have another display next year. 22 copies of "They Told Me So" booklets were sold.

(2) Union Cemetery. Supv. Keith spoke with Andrew Fortune for his assistance in improving access to some of the gravesites at Union Cemetery. In addition, Supv. Keith asked the Highway Superintendent to mow the larger weed growth in the area that the Custodian cannot mow. It is possible some surveying will need to be done in order to keep the lines straight. The Town does not sell burial plots.

(3) Franklin Falls Cemetery. Coun. Smalley asked the name of the owner of Franklin Falls Cemetery. Supv. Keith replied the actual ownership is "in limbo"; it is a private cemetery, and although the Town of Franklin has helped to maintain it for a number of years, it no longer does so. Based on research performed by Town Historian Brad Merrill, the cemetery is deeded to a cemetery association, therefore, the Town of Franklin considers it a private cemetery owned and managed by a private association. Historian Merrill reported that as a result of complaints filed by the owners of adjoining properties to the Town of St. Armand and according to news reports, St. Armand Supervisor Joyce Morency has ordered a title search. The tool shed constructed on the property has been removed. State Law requires a town to assume management of a cemetery if the private association is disbanded, and the Franklin Falls Cemetery Association unofficially dissolved in the 1920’s and started again in the 1950-1960’s but ceased once again. No death certificates or burial permits for the cemetery have ever been filed in the Town of Franklin.

B. RECREATION COMMITTEE.

(1) Progress on Improvements. Coun. Berg reported that posts have been erected for volleyball, and chips spread under the sliding board. He spoke with Trudeau, and a representative looked at the field and determined Trudeau’s equipment was too small to handle the area; they suggested he contact Luck Bros. Coun. Berg made several calls to Luck Bros., but has not heard anything from them.

(2) Maintenance Equipment. Coun. Berg inquired about the condition of Town Custodian’s lawnmower, and Supv. Keith reported the mower still runs, but is in very poor shape. It is a suitable mower for a 1-acre piece of property but not for the large number of acres the Custodian maintains. Coun. Berg suggested the mower be replaced with a larger piece of equipment.

(3) Summer Youth Program. Supv. Keith reported that the total number of youngsters served by the 6-week program is 3,300. She also attended a School Board meeting and thanked the School District for its support for the summer program.

11. CORRESPONDENCE.

Supv. Keith asked if each Board member had received the October 12, 2009 SUNY Potsdam Local Government brochure. She indicated there are several sessions that would be beneficial; she will distribute copies.

QUESTIONS AND COMMENTS

Q/C: How much did the cleanup of the illegal dump site on Norman Ridge Road cost?

A: Supv. Keith replied that she will compile the costs. Some charges were billed to the Highway Department and some to refuse. She will have the totals for next month’s meeting.

Coun. Kretser commented he would like to see 2 or 3 more boulders blocking the entrance to the site; he will speak with the Highway Superintendent about this.

12. ADJOURNMENT.

There being no further business to conduct, the meeting adjourned at 8:20PM. (M.Keith-W.Kretser m/s/p) ALL AYE
