Supervisor's Report September 14, 2016

The state of emergency on Hydor Drive has been lifted and the stormwater pipe has been repaired.  I apologize to the few homeowners who experienced a fiberglass odor in the wake of the repairs.

We’re still waiting on the report from Utility Services, Inc. on the condition of the Hampton Manor water tanks.  As soon as we get it we’ll schedule the next meeting on the Hampton Manor water situation.  At that meeting we’ll present the results of the survey and discuss next steps in deciding the future of the drinking water in the Manor.

The road paving program is complete.  For those of you who have inquired about it, we paved the part of Eastern Avenue that belongs to the Town.  The stretch from Hudson Avenue to Route 151 is a County road and so remains unpaved.

On September 21st at 6:15 p.m. we’ll hold the second public hearing on the new Code of Ethics. The updated Code provides for a stricter delineation between political activity and Town government, and will help restore the public’s trust in the workings of its Town government.

We have received the bids for auditing services and will be selecting a firm to audit the Town’s 2015 finances at next week’s Town Board meeting.  The firm selected will also conduct a single audit for 2013.  The new Town Board has made auditing of our finances a high priority and selecting the right firm will be an important step in the process.

I want to congratulate the University at Albany for the renaming of its East Greenbush campus.  It will now be known as the University at Albany Health Sciences campus.  We’re proud to have such a prestigious institution in our community.
