The Homer Town Board Wednesday night approved sharing its staff with the village – as needed.
For example, when it’s tax time for the village some extra office help from town staff can provide better service to residents. It works both ways, if the Town staff could use a hand.
It’s a formal agreement with each government covering the hourly wage and benefit costs.
Also at its meeting, the Town Board approved the purchase of a new plow truck for the highway department, which could be delivered by fall. Color: Green. Sale of an older truck could cover some costs.
When the Wall Street Bridge is replaced, town leaders hope it can be repurposed at either Durkee Park, or a local museum. Supervisor Fred Forbes noted that a group from Cortland has also expressed interest for a project there.
The Town is moving its accounts to the First National Bank of Dryden.
The Homer Town Board voted to hire Contento’s to remove asbestos found in the glue that holds panels to walls in the old balcony and stairwell area of Town Hall. The Board voted to approve making the space safe for use as a storage area.
