We have more from the Wednesday night Homer Village Board of Trustees meeting.
The Board accepted a proposal from Beard Electric for a security camera system.
Cameras will be on village water towers, behind the fire station, at Durkee Park, Griggs Field, the Water Department and DPW. The idea is to deter vandals.
The Board found Beard’s quote was the lowest and that it is a local company.

Mayor Hal McCabe says the village is also preparing to plant trees this fall, now that trimming is finished.
“Right now, we’ve reached out to the Beautification Committee and they’re going to go through and look at some of the trees-types, to make sure that we have biodiversity and also that trees don’t grow up too high, too fast and become a problem for National Grid.”
New Village Recreation Director Zach Pollack is ready to roll out RecDesk, which will become the only way for people to sign up and pay for Homer Recreation Department programs and park rentals.
“We’ve had it in the can for a while and have not been able to execute it, but now, we’ve got Zach on board,” said Mayor McCabe. “He’s implementing it. It’s going to launch when the new Village of Homer website launches in a few weeks.”
If you don’t have access to a computer go to the Village Office and a terminal will be set up for public use.
Lastly, a new road is planned at Glenwood Cemetery, so Section 21 can be expanded by another 350 plots.
