The Town of Homer Board met last night for their monthly meeting at 6:30 in the Town Board room to discuss a wide range of items including the Memorial Day Parade, electric vehicle charging stations at the Town Hall, and other items.
Currently, the Village of Homer is looking at having electric vehicle charging stations placed in the parking lot at the Homer Town Hall. Village of Homer Deputy Mayor Pat Clune spoke to the Town Board on the idea informing the board that a grant would allow for the installation of electric vehicle charging stations and the town would be reimbursed for the electricity used to charge vehicles by the company operating the stations.
The Town Board raised questions about the electrical use from the stations, especially with plans moving on the possible basement renovations within the Town Hall. Additionally, the town was curious on the current usage of the charging stations located near the basketball courts in the Village of Homer. Clune informed the town he would look to gather that information and no set timeline was given of when the electric charging stations would need to be built.
For Memorial Day coming up, the annual Memorial Day parade will return again on Monday, May 29th beginning at 9am. The route will be the same as last year’s parade to the Graveyard. The parade will begin on North Main St. at Clinton St. then proceed to travel south to Cayuga Street ending at Glenwood Cemetery where a ceremony will take place honoring military personnel who have died while serving in the US Armed Forces.
