INTRODUCTION


1.) I HAVE A BRIEF PRESENTATION, AFTER WHICH I WILL BE
PLEASED TO ANSWER QUESTIONS,

2.) THE PURPOSE OF THIS HEARING IS TO DISCUSS THE FORMATION OF
BOTH A WATER AND SEWER DISTRICT EXTENSION THAT WOULD INCLUDE
ALL OF MEYERS STREET AND BROWN'S TRAILER PARK. THE EXTENSIONS
WOULD BE FORMED BY TOWN BOARD RESOLUTIONS AS PROVIDED IN
STATE LAW. THE SEWER EXTENSION WOULD BE KNOWN AS EXTENSION
NO.4 TO SEWER DISTRICT NO 5. THE WATER EXTENSION WOULD BE
KNOWN AS EXTENSION NO.3 TO WATER DISTRICT NO. 6.

3.) I HAVE PREPARED THREE SEPARATE ENGINEERING REPORTS: ONE
ENGINEER'S REPORT FOR A WATER DISTRICT EXTENSION, ONE ENGINEER'S
REPORT FOR A SEWER.DISTRICT EXTENSION AND ONE ENGINEER'S DESIGN
REPORT THAT COMBINES ALL THE PROPOSED WATER AND SEWER WORK
INTO ONE PROJECT. I WOULD SUMMARIZE THE CONTENTS OF THESE
REPORTS AS FOLLOWS:

A.) THE BASIS OF THE DISTRICT EXTENSION FORMATION IS THAT ALL
DESIGN AND CONSTRUCTION COSTS WILL BE PAID FOR BY A
100%GRANT. IF NO GRANT IS RECEIVED, THEN NO FURTHER WORK
WILL, BE DONE ON DISTRICT EXTENSION FORMATION EXCEPT TO
ABOLISH THE DISTRICTS.

B.) THE TOWN BOARD FILED A GRANT APPLICATION BY THE DEADLINE
OF APRIL 23RD FOR ALL THE ENGINEERING AND CONSTRUCTION WORK
FOR ALL THE FACILITIES AS DESCRIBED IN THE THREE REFERENCED
REPORTS.. THE APPLICATION WAS MADE THRU THE CONSIDERABLE
EFFORTS OF SUPERVISOR MALANEY, THE TOWN BOARD, TOWN STAFF,
AND THE ESSEX COUNTY DEPARTMENT OF COMMUNITY DEVELOPMENT
AND PLANNING. RESULTS OF THE APPLICATION WILL BE KNOWN AFTER
AUGUST 20I0. IN ORDER TO PROPERLY COMPLETE THE APPLICATION, THE
THIRD REPORT, ENTITLED "ENGINEER'S DESIGN REPORT FOR WATER
DISTRIBUTION AND SANITARY
SEWER COLLECTION FACILITIES FOR MEYERS STREET" WAS PREPARED.
THIS REPORT COMBINED THE INFORMATION OF THE TWO PREVIOUS
REPORTS, SHOWED THE COST ESTIMATES IN GREATER DETAIL AND ALL
THE WORK AS ONE PROJECT, AND REVISED THE MAPS TO SHOW ALL
   Minutes for the Town of Ticonderoga Regular Town Board Meeting held on
      May 13, 2010 in the Community Building commencing at 6:00 p.m.
THE WORK AS ONE PROJECT. THIS IS THE MANNER IN WHICH THE WORK
WOULD BE DONE SHOULD THE TOWN RECEIVE THE 100% GRANT.

C.) I HAVE ESTIMATED THE COST OF THE PROJECT BASED ON
TRADITIONAL PIPELINE INSTALLATION METHODS. IF THE PROJECT IS
FUNDED, OTHER ALTERNATIVES WILL BE INVESTIGATED BASED ON
THE RESULTS OF SOIL INVESTIGATIONS AND THE EXTENT OF
REQUIRED BEDROCK REMOVAL. THE PROJECT WILL BUILD THE
ENTIRE SYSTEM RIGHT UP TO THE FOUNDATIONS OF THE SERVED
BUILDINGS.

D.) THE ANNUAL COST TO EACH USER WILL BE LIMITED TO THE
ANNUAL O&M COST FOR A RESIDENTIAL UNIT WHICH FOR 2010 IS A
WATER COST OF $322/YEAR AND FOR SEWER COST OF $420/YEAR. IT IS
IMPORTANT FOR DISTRICT USERS TO UNDERSTAND THAT RATES FOR
WATER AND SEWER SERVICE ARE REVIEWED ANNUALLY AND SUBJECT
TO REVISION IN ORDER TO COVER THE COST TO MAINTAIN AND OPERATE
THE EXTENSIVE WATER AND SEWER FACILITIES OWNED AND OPERATED
BY THE TOWN.

E.)    ALL AREAS DISTURBED BY THE WORK WILL BE RESTORED TO
PRECONSTRUCTION CONDITION, INCLUDING ROADWAYS, LAWNS
....THERE WILL BE THE EXPECTED NOISE AND TEMPORARY
INCONVENIENCE RELATED TO WORK OF THIS TYPE, BUT THE TOWN
WILL MAKE ALL REASONABLE EFFORTS TO LIMIT THESE SECONDARY
IMPACTS. THE CONSTRUCTION WORK WILL TAKE BETWEEN 4 TO 6
MONTHS TO COMPLETE. UNDER THE GRANT RULES, ALL WORK MUST
BE DONE WITHIN 24 MONTHS OF RECEIVING THE GRANT. ALTHOUGH
THE PROJECT IS LIMITED IN LENGTH, THE STEEP TERRAIN, EXPECTED
PRESENCE OF ROCK, AND NARROW ROAD WIDTH WILL ALL IMPACT JOB
PROGRESS. THE PRESENT INTENT IS TO BUILD THE SYSTEM DURING THE
SPRING / SUMMER OF 201 1.


PROJECT COST

AS FOUND IN THE REPORTS THE PROJECT COST FOR THE WATER AND
SEWER FACILITIES ARE AS FOLLOWS:
     1. FOR WATER FACILITIES - $ 267,565
     2. FOR SEWER FACILITIES - $ 332,419
        TOTAL PROJECT COST $ 599,984

PROPERTY OWNERS' RESPONSIBILITIES

      1.   IT WILL BE NECESSARY THAT ALL PROPERTY OWNERS GRANT
           THE TOWN A TEMPORARY CONSTRUCTION EASEMENT IN
    Minutes for the Town of Ticonderoga Regular Town Board Meeting held on
       May 13, 2010 in the Community Building commencing at 6:00 p.m.
           ORDER THAT THE BUILDING SEWERS AND WATER SERVICES
           CAN BE CONSTRUCTED TO THE BUILDING FOUNDATIONS. FOR
           THE BROWN'S TRAILER PARK, THE EASEMENT WILL BE A
           PERMANENT EASEMENT.
        2. AFTER THE BUILDING SEWERS AND WATER SERVICES ARE
           ACCEPTED BY THE TOWN, IT WILL BE THE PROPERTY
           OWNERS' RESPONSIBILITY TO PROPERLY MAINTAIN THE
           LINES EXCEPT FOR MATTERS WHICH ARE COVERED BY THE
           ONE YEAR CONTRACTOR'S WARRANTY. AFTER THE ONE YEAR
           WARRANTY, ALL RESPONSIBILITY FOR THE BUILDING SEWER
           AND THE WATER SERVICE BECOMES THE PROPERTY
           OWNERS'.
        3. BECAUSE THE PROJECT MAY REQUIRE BLASTING, PROPERTY
           OWNERS WILL BE REQUIRED TO ALLOW THE CONTRACTOR
           ACCESS TO THE BUILDINGS AND BUILDING FOUNDATIONS TO
           ALLOW THE CONTRACTOR TO PREPARE PRE-BLAST SURVEYS
           AND REPORTS FOR THE PURPOSE OF DOCUMENTING THE
           EXISTING CONDITION OF THE BUILDING AND BUILDING
           FOUNDATIONS

Supervisor Malaney thanked Mr. Kestner for all his help with this project and then turned
the floor over to Mark Burnham, from Burnham Financials.

Councilman Taylor inquired if Burnham Financial looked at alternatives for the Town for
cost comparatives.

Mr. Burnham answered yes, they compare several different companies to come up with
the best rates that can be serviced in this area. The company that the Town is with now;
Excellus Blue Cross is still one of the best carriers in this area and most of the
businesses/municipalities in Essex County use them.

                                    Invitation to Speak

Richard Holroyd recalled at the last month’s board meeting it was put out there to vote on
possibly post phoning the assessments. Will this be done tonight?

Supervisor Malaney stated no.

Mr. Holroyd stated the board is willing to let this reval go and stand as is. Do you realize
all the Article 78’s that will be filed? It was discussed at the last meeting that you were
going to possibly have a vote at this meeting to have that reval delayed for a year;
because of the discrepancies.

Councilman Taylor asked how one would know (except by virtue of rumor or innuendo)
whether or not there actually were any discrepancies? Nobody had laid eyes on the
Tentative Assessment roll until May 1. How can we be asked to vote on something that
we did not have access to?

Mr. Holroyd asked why it was brought up by Mr. Whitford then?

Councilman Taylor stated that he cannot speak for Councilman Whitford, but he can not
intelligently vote on something that he had not laid eyes on or that anyone could
demonstrate to him that there were gross errors.
    Minutes for the Town of Ticonderoga Regular Town Board Meeting held on
       May 13, 2010 in the Community Building commencing at 6:00 p.m.
Mr. Holroyd asked then why is it then that some people are getting real good reductions
and other are not. Why is it that all the businesses in Ticonderoga stayed the same yet
private property values went sky high? If the businesses are staying the same, how is it
that the private properties all took a hike.

Supervisor Malaney stated that these are questions that need to be directed to the Town
Assessor.

Mr. Holroyd is asking the Town Board because it was a Town Board member that stated
at a Town Board meeting that he would like it voted on. The reason that was given that it
couldn’t be voted on at that time was because Mrs. Crammond was not there.

Councilman Taylor stated that this was not the reason given.

Councilman Whitford stated that he did not bring up Mrs. Crammond’s name.

Mr. Holroyd stated that he will sit with the board and review the tape. It was the reason
given and he is not the only one that remembers that. The reval is going, he is glad that
we have and attorney and hopes that he is paid for with all the suits that will be filed
against the Town.

Mr. Holroyd asked if there were any docks for the LaChute River.

Councilman Whitford answered no.

Mr. Holroyd stated that this was another project that is about 10 years old. Docks were
going to be placed at the steps to go down into the River. He even suggested that the
High School/BOCES construct the docks. They thought that they could do that and
something came up so it never happened. Then it was thought that they could get old
docks from DEC for there; but it never happened. There were plans to have the pool
down there enlarged. One of the very first tournaments that were televised in Town took
pictures of all the winning boats down in that pool. Why don’t you have your committee
figure out a way to put a dock in there and have the LCI operate out of Ticonderoga.

Councilman Whitford stated that the LCI will not come here.

Mr. Holroyd stated that if it was offered they would come and you could have it right
here. They would come. This goes back 10 – 15 years, it was a big issue.

Supervisor Malaney answered that it will get looked into.

Mr. Holroyd asked if everything was on the table for the budgets, meaning health
insurance being given up and the police budget. Is this all going to be discussed this
year? Is there another town in Essex County that is our size, has the economic conditions
of our Town and has a Police Force the size we do.
    Minutes for the Town of Ticonderoga Regular Town Board Meeting held on
       May 13, 2010 in the Community Building commencing at 6:00 p.m.
Councilman Taylor stated that Lake Placid does.

Mr. Holroyd asked if the board thought that Lake Placid may get a few more thousand
people than we get. They have a little bit more of an economic background for them than
we do.
Supervisor Malaney stopped Mr. Holroyd. His five minutes were up. (Went seven).

Police Department (Councilman Taylor reporting)

We are still looking at options; we are looking for a definitive mandate that we need to do
something. Looking at the economy we believe that this is not the best time to do this
unless we absolutely have to.

Councilman Whitford stated that it would be another $30,000 plus to finish the testing
that need to be done for a definitive answer.

Supervisor Malaney would like to note that Vanguard (owner of the old Rite Aid
Building) is willing to come down on the leasing price to $2.00 - $3.00 a square foot.

                                   April 28, 2010
                        Councilman Jeffrey D. Cook-Chairman
                      Councilman Wayne E. Taylor-Vice Chairman

Present: Dave Woods, Tim Huestis, Tim Porter, Wayne Taylor, John Deming, Deb
Malaney, Rick Quesnel, Jeff Cook and Kelly O’Connor
    Minutes for the Town of Ticonderoga Regular Town Board Meeting held on
       May 13, 2010 in the Community Building commencing at 6:00 p.m.
Guests wishing to speak:

Tim Huestis wanted to know why the clothing and shoe allowance for the Highway
Department was not paid the first pay day after April 15th. He was told that there was a
mix up in the wording of the contract but they will be in May’s abstract.

John Deming’s report:

Pat Morrison is a t the county meeting in Elizabethtown.

John is trying to get in touch with Kelly Wright to sign an easement for a turn around on
Veterans Road. He is playing phone tag with him and hopes to get this done soon.

Tiroga Point:

Pat has gotten approval from all but two residents to widen and repave the road. The
Hitchcock Group and the Stenson family are not going to give their permission to take a
small part of their land to widen the road. New plans will have to be drawn up in order to
get the job done. They may only be able to box the road out, put down fabric and lay
down millings from the airport runway this year with paving to be done next year.

Depot St.

John Deming has sent letters to Mike McCormick, our lawyer and Mike’s lawyer for new
deeds to show who owns what. Jeff has brought up a concern about increased traffic at
Cannonball Path and Champlain Avenue and the limited visibility looking south. A
solution in the future would be to put a driveway in the alleyway in back of the buildings
on Champlain Avenue.

The turn around on Warner Hill is being moved back 2 to 3 hundred feet. John talked to
the county and Crown Point and they have agreed with it.

Anita Banarsee on Outlet Drive has to move her fence back on her property and move
rocks as a retention wall. If it is extended east it will look better and give more room for
turn around.

DEC has given permission to stockpile ditching material at the landfill as an approved
site.

Hayford Road is an expensive project but Pat thinks Federal funding will help offset the
cost.

A three acre parcel of land is needed for stump and dump, and the dump has more than
enough land for this. They are also looking at chipping no more than three inch brush
and asking the mill if they would be interested in buying the chips.
    Minutes for the Town of Ticonderoga Regular Town Board Meeting held on
       May 13, 2010 in the Community Building commencing at 6:00 p.m.
Pat said the paperwork to start digging the spill should be ready for next week. We are
waiting for DEC to approve the plan. Wayne Taylor would like the press to come and
report this so the community will know exactly what is going on.

Miscellaneous: Harvey Yaw on Colonial Street has a blind ditch that keeps flooding his
basement. The culvert keeps popping up during cold weather.

Wayne would like to review the budget at monthly meetings so we will know where the
money is being spent each month.

Alice Vilardo asked Wayne Taylor why the sidewalk was taken out on Prospect and Mt.
Hope Avenue. The side walk narrowed the road and was suggested to put one on the
other side of the road.

The owner of Family Dollar is considering putting a four foot barrier up in his parking
lot. He owns the property and has a right to do this

Q & A abandonment must have a list made and prepared by November 1st.

We will pursue a plan for a turnaround on Birnbaum.

May 4th union meeting to start negotiations for new contract.

Wayne Taylor talked to Tom Scozzafava about stockpiling metal and selling it at peak.
Town of Ti is under contract with Earth Waste Management until 2013.

We would like to set-up a clean-up day with a limit of 3” brush and only bagged leaves.

Jeff Cook would like the parking space lines in the back of the community building to be
straight.

Wayne Taylor wanted to know if the highway men would be interested in having a
uniform rental instead of a clothing allowance.

Griffith Oil is changing from non-ethanol to ethanol fuel.

The next Highway Committee meeting will be May 25, 2010 @ 11:00 a.m.

Councilman Taylor explained that we have 15 inches of gas in our tank at the Highway
Department and there is about a ½” of water in it. We are waiting to get the tank down to
drain that water.

He also asked if we can get something in writing from DEC about the stockpiling at the
transfer station. This have become an issue in the past.

Resolution #129-2010 brought by Jeffrey Cook, seconded by Wayne Taylor to agree to
    Minutes for the Town of Ticonderoga Regular Town Board Meeting held on
       May 13, 2010 in the Community Building commencing at 6:00 p.m.
spend Town Highway Funds as in the provisions of Section 284 of the Highway Law, for
repair and improvements of Tiroga Point up to the amount of $160,000.00. All in Favor
Debra Malaney – Aye, Jeffrey Cook – Aye, Wayne Taylor – Aye, Dorcey Crammond –
Aye, Steven Whitford – Aye. Opposed – none. Carried.

Councilman Taylor wants to inform the public that we have been issued a violation at the
Highway Shed; potentially we could be looking at over $100,000.00 of cleaning costs.

                                        May 2010

Dear Town Board Members,

I would like to thank you and tell you how much the Senior Bus is appreciated by the
Seniors of Ticonderoga. I’m 93 and have lost my eye sight, so the Senior Bus is vital to
me for appointments at the Health Center. Also shopping and going to the meal site. We
who ride the bus enjoy the company on the bus. Again I just want you and the tax payers
to know how much we Seniors appreciate our bus and Sue, the driver, she takes care of
us.   John Stanley

       During the month of April, the Senior Bus traveled an average of 92 miles a day
with 15 daily riders.

         As of April 2010 the Senior Membership was 143. 46 members and 55 guests
accounted for 509 hours of participation. Center participation has nearly doubled in the
last three (3) month. This is a very busy center that offers: Speakers @ meetings, trips, a
monthly night out dinner, Bingo, ACAP Bingo, Pinochle. Wii, exercise program that
involves bowling and an AARP Safe Driving Course.

       The Seniors are going to purchase one of the Colonial Soldier Cut Outs that are
being sold to line Montcalm Street. They have a member that will paint it and it will be
displayed at the Armory.    They are also planning some kind of fund raiser with
proceeds going toward a much needed parking lot for the Armory.

        Guest speakers have been lined up for June and September as follows:
                June 9th. Doreen Rabine USDA area specialist.
                Sept. 8th Call of the Wild with Trish. A wildlife restoration program with
live birds and animals. The public is invited to all the senior special programs.

        The May meeting featured a seminar on “Senior Scams” by Glen Michaels from
the Attorney Generals Office. Due to my work schedule, I was unable to attend this
program but believe Jeff did attend.

    Rogers Rock campsite for the summer season on June 13 and 27 and July 11 and 25.
    There was much discussion regarding the poorly attended activities nights. Committee
    member Trish Stonitsch had some wonderful ideas to revamp the center’s activities.


    Ideas from Youth Commission meeting 5/3/10

    Charging for some activities...$1 per child - $3 per family or (perhaps using the lunch fee
    standards from the school) so a slush fund develops for activity supplies and prizes for the
    kids that are appropriate for the activity done e.g a compass, binoculars, set of water colors,
    wood burning set.

    Older Kids playground stuff e.g. rock climbing wall, merry go round spinning thing, tire
    swings, big monkey bars, platforms with ladders, slides, rope climber individual and mesh
    type

    Keep records of the activities completed for an award system or other benefit e.g. take 5
    classes get 1 free

    Changing the focus of the activities : some can be for a day/week or month's focus e.g.-

            Art-Watercolor /pastel art classes

            Pottery/ceramics

            Jewelry design and making -beading

          Wood -crafts --blubird boxes, bird feeders platforms, garden pokes with
    woodburned labels e.g. tomatoes/cukes/peas

            Cooking /baking skills and give away or making the snacks for the classes

            Sewing/quilting -clothing, pocketbooks, carry bags, blankets -like the fleece tie
        Minutes for the Town of Ticonderoga Regular Town Board Meeting held on
           May 13, 2010 in the Community Building commencing at 6:00 p.m.
    blankets

            Writing- e.g. writers salad project, children's stories to read to preschoolers, history
    writings by interviewing older folks in the community

            Shennanigans day- fun things to make and do from nothing? Paper airplane making
    and races, biggest bubble blowing contest gum and soap bubbles, "magic tricks" taught and
    then shown off, card tricks and games, kitchen science. Games made from household stuff
    (things my generation did to keep busy and have fun)

            Carnival day- make and then play with carnival type games...ring toss, ring the
    bottle, baseball/basketball toss, water gun shooting gallery

        Drama day-costume trunk and ideas...teams put on a show for each other-written,
    designed and costumed all in a day or 2

        Dora the Explorer day/Mountain man/woman day-teaching map and compass skills
    all ages, scavenger hunt, team work, helping others achieve a goal.

       Survivor- activities to push skill levels and abilities but also to teach skills of surviving
    outdoors

        Pirates of the Caribbean day- treasure chests, making a pirate ship for a sailing race,
    ropes course, climbing rope ladders, swinging on ropes from point a to b, jumping from place
    to place, making swords and target shooting with water guns.

       Circus day- juggling workshop, designing circus acts to perform e.g. bouncing ping
    pong balls into cups, jump rope tricks...double Dutch, Chinese jump rope(made from rubber
    bands) clowning and face painting, mimes, etc

       Be an Architect -Castle day or build a fort day -using appliance boxes and other
    cardboard (cereal/butter/soda case boxes) to design a castle table top model and then make
    one a person can fit in. Drama day can incorporate the castles in a play

       Doll house day- making curtains and furniture for your dollhouse

       Matchbox car racing day/collector day

+       Money matters day- fake money/credit cards to teach about earning,

    saving, spending, giving, credit cards, renting to own, budgeting.

       Help from TFCU/GFNB/Wal Mart etc completing each section provides

               earning power to purchase something at the end of the classes (donated
        Minutes for the Town of Ticonderoga Regular Town Board Meeting held on
           May 13, 2010 in the Community Building commencing at 6:00 p.m.
    items)

       Playground game day-hopscotch, marbles, etc

       Teaching Computer skills

       Marathon day of activities jump rope/basketball shoot/running in place/jumping jacks

+       Scavenger hunts-at night by flashlight

            Old fashioned game day- Red rover/red light green light/tag/catch a fly you're
    it/running bases/around the world etc.



    I'm sure there's so much more we can think of. This is just to prime the pump. Hoping we
    can involve some folks who have these skills or a love for kids. We can welcome parents to
    come learn alongside their child or to help as their children are learning. Perhaps by doing
    so they can get the class free for their child. Checking with the librarians/teachers we can
    find out the interests of children in general and also of adults who frequent the
    library...writers, sailors, historians, retired business people, artists, cyclists, collectors etc.
    Even the ways we had fun as kids can be fun for kids today

    We had also talked about other helps to having the armory used to a greater potential.

           Signage outside the Armory- digital or like the one at the firehouse to advertise
    what's coming up at the Armory Fun-days

          We could check with each of the churches in town or civic groups and see if they
    would like to sponsor an afternoon or evening fun-day activity with necessary
    items/supplies or chaperones/teachers on a regular basis (monthly-bimonthly).

    Maybe we can research some of this and put feelers out over the summer to begin some of
    these next fall.

    The meeting was fun. I personally appreciate all that has been done for families and
    children in our town. We may be able to coordinate our efforts with other groups and
    maximize our effect in the community and to give Marge and her team more support.

    Thanks for listening to the one who "regularly shows up every other month"! I'll get better
    at it.  Tricia Stonitsch 585-6369

       May 13, 2010 in the Community Building commencing at 6:00 p.m.

6. Is it possible if I can get a vender to bring out a portable cart to the beach to sell food
and drinks what would they need to have to sell there?

7. I will be submitting a proposal to the town by request of parents to have the youth
center open year round 6 days a week with different hours of operation. This is needed
for the youth of Ticonderoga and surrounding areas, and I think the town should open the
doors up for local communities for others to participate.

                                      May 4, 2010



Presents:   Councilman Jeff Cook, Bill Dolback, Jerry Cooper, Joyce Cooper,
Councilwoman Dorcey Crammond.

Others:         Linda Mackey, Rob Gautreau, Eric Grinnell, Shay Varmette.

Shay Varmette – a senior at the Ticonderoga High School needed to attend a government
meeting for her government class and she attended tonight’s meeting.
    Minutes for the Town of Ticonderoga Regular Town Board Meeting held on
       May 13, 2010 in the Community Building commencing at 6:00 p.m.
Dog Park:         I had requested at the March Board meeting to revisit the Dog Park Site,
and this was agreed to. Due to the fact that the present chosen site at the western side of
the Recreational fields needed too much work and money to prepare, we again looked at
the Lord Howe Street Town owned property along the LaChute. A group of interested
dog owners and my self walked this tract of land again this week, and Bill Dolback, Rick
Bennett and I walked it again for Bill to point out where the Wet Lands are located. We
all feel that this would be the ideal area for the park. Bill is going to measure the area for
fencing, and if there is no Environmental Impact we hope to go ahead with the plans as
passed last fall by the Board. We have a bequeath of $5,000.00 pledged to this project
and Lowe’s had offered help with it also.

        Dog bag stations have been installed in the area of the recreation Fields and
Frasier Bridge and trash receptacles are along the walking trails. Please “scoop the poop”
fines WILL be imposed.

Recreation Fields: Again this month the use of all the fields was discussed. Question
asked if the 3rd field could be used for practice when it is open from play. Consensus of
committee was that it could be. Suggestion was made that next spring before the season
starts that a meeting be called for all users of the field to set out rules and schedules, so
all can work together better.
         The third field has problems with flooding and it leaves that field un-usable some
times. Bill Dolback will ask Dave Reckum from Essex County Soil & Water for advice
on how to address this.

      A request was made to acquire paper towels for Little League bathrooms from the
Town supplies? This is Tonya’s dept.

Beach:         The beach is in very good shape for the summer season. The parking lot
still needs some work from ruts left by construction vehicles in connection with the sewer
district work. We are hoping this will be addressed soon.

Beautification Crew: Six picnic tables have been purchased and will be in place soon.
Bill has raised money to get water put in at Champlain Legacy Park. The Crown Point
Pylon is on line to be repaired. The DAR has given money for a floral piece to be placed
in Artillery Park by the soldier’s monument.

We have a potential big problem of a sink hole in Bicentennial Park by the gazebo. This
could be a major problem and I need direction n how you want to address it.

       Next meeting June 3rd @ 5:30pm.

We have a resignation now on file from Jerry Crammond for the position of board
member for the Cemetery Board. We are now looking for someone to replace Mr.
Crammond.

        Councilman Wayne Taylor called the meeting to order at 5:00 PM with the pledge
of allegiance to the flag. The following people were in attendance at the meeting: Wayne
Taylor, Mark Johns, Dave Woods, Margaret Lauman, Ralph Regimbald, Dale Quesnel,
Bill Ball, John Woods, Ross Kelley,Calvin Cross, Deb Malaney and Ron Drinkwine.

       Wayne Taylor made a motion to accept the minutes of the last meeting and Calvin

       Wayne asked if any guest wished to speak. There was no one present at this
meeting.

        Wayne asked for a moment of silence for Jack Mattison who had recently passed
away.

Old Issues:
        Wayne asked Mark if the Police Department had a policy manual. Mark stated
that the department does have a policy manual and that it is an on-going process keeping
it updated and current.
        Wayne asked if there was a problem with the open container law during the 4th of
July. Mark stated that two things that were being looked at was liability and public
perception. There was extensive discussion about drinking on the street, especially the
keg party that is being held there every year. Wayne asked if there could be an exception
made for that day or what could be done and that he was going to talk more with the rest
of the town board. Ross Kelley stated that he has grave concerns about what happens
during the 4th. Mark stated that he would do whatever the town board requires.

New Issues:
        Wayne asked if the July 4th planning has been completed. Mark stated that all of
the planning is coming together and that will be completed in time.
        Wayne asked about cost saving measures and how everyone needs to find ways to
save money. Wayne wondered if there were ways to save in the Police Department
clothing and cleaning allowance stating that he only brought that up to get the thought
process heading towards saving money.
    Minutes for the Town of Ticonderoga Regular Town Board Meeting held on
       May 13, 2010 in the Community Building commencing at 6:00 p.m.

Reports of Committee:
      Wayne asked if there has been an update on where we are going with the Police
Department. Mark stated that the project is still being worked on.

 Code Enforcement:
       See attached report.
       Bill Ball said there have been a lot of complaints on the house on Lake George
Avenue and the owner stated that he was going to apply for a demolition permit.
       Bill stated that there is a lot of garbage being thrown around Ticonderoga citing
the McCaughin Road as an example.
       There was much discussion on the many cases that Bill has going on and Wayne
offered to help , with the town board, to make things easier for Bill.
       See attached the old building permit fees and the proposed building permit fees.
These are to be reviewed for changes or adoption at the next meeting.

Chief’s Report:
        Mark reviewed the Chief’s report to the committee. (See attached)
        Mark stated that there was a little extra in payroll due to the Easter Holiday.
        Mark stated that he would like to bring up for discussion the possibility of trading
in the Jeep and the Crown Victoria along with a small amount from the forfeiture account
to purchase a new unmarked car for the department to be used for investigative purposes,
trips and administration. None of the expense would come from the department operating
budget. The conversion would effectively downsize the operating fleet by replacing two
aging higher maintenance cost vehicles with one new, which would have a considerable
manufacturer’s warranty. Overall the committee felt that it was a good plan.

Officer’s Comments:
      N/A

DCO Report:
       Ralph stated that he had 22 calls last month.

                                  Public Participation

Amy Catanzarita/Outlet Drive
Amy lives on Outlet Drive and recently began experiencing septic failure issues. She has
received several quotes to repair/replace the system but due to clay soil and ground water,
it will be a difficult and expensive system to build. She is requesting connection to the
municipal sewer system located on Baldwin Road in Sewer District #5.

A service agreement is an option though the connection would have to be built according
to Town specifications, at the homeowner’s cost and if a district is formed later, agree to
be a part of that district.

Amy mentioned that there are 4 households that would like to connect at the same time.
For multiple homes to connect would require a District extension which is a more time
consuming and expensive process.
    Minutes for the Town of Ticonderoga Regular Town Board Meeting held on
       May 13, 2010 in the Community Building commencing at 6:00 p.m.
The residents on this street, especially those along the lake, have requested municipal
sewer on several occasions but have been unable to get enough support from all of those
residing in the area to agree.

          account for use at the WWTP.
6. Water Dept Invoices

          departments.

          Operator on staff.

                  with his staff to see if either 1A Operator is interested.

            town and therefore the road will have to be moved.

                         RESOLUTION #140-2010
             STANDARDIZING GRINDER PUMP SPECIFICATIONS


       At a meeting of the Town Board of the Town of Ticonderoga, Essex County, New
York, held at the Community Building in the Town of Ticonderoga on the 13th day of
May, 2010.
       The following members of the Town Board were present: Debra A. Malaney,
Supervisor, Dorcey Crammond, Councilwoman, Wayne Taylor, Councilman, Steven
Whitford, Councilman and Jeffrey Cook, Councilman

       On motion of Wayne Taylor seconded by Jeffrey Cook
The following resolution was presented to the Town Board and unanimously passed:

       Whereas, the Town of Ticonderoga has a number of force main sewer districts
using grinder pumps manufactured by Environment One, a pump manufacturer that has
been building E-1 grinder pumps for over 40 years, and

        Whereas, these pumps perform in a satisfactory manner in the Town’s force main
installations and required very little maintenance, and
        Whereas, the Town has been utilizing the Environment One pumps since the
early 1990’s and from 2000 to date a number of districts were formed utilizing force
mains rather than gravity mains such as the Baldwin Road, the Hague Road, Route 9N
and 74, the Black Point Road and the specifications for grinder pumps on all of these
installations led to the contractor’s purchasing the E-1 grinder pump, and

        Whereas, the Town sewer districts presently own and maintain more than 300 E-
1 grinder pumps, motor controls and level sensing devices, and the engineering design for
the force sewer main in Town of Ticonderoga requires the installation of a grinder pump
with specific and unique hydraulic features and the E-1 pump meets these hydraulic
specifications and the economy realized from standardizing the grinder pump
specifications and requiring the E-1 grinder pump for all future installations is:
        a. all parts including motor controls and level sensing units are interchangeable.
If several different manufacturer’s pumps are installed the Town would be required to
have in stock spare parts and controls for those manufacturer’s pumps at an additional
cost to the Town.
        b. the E-1 grinder pump is designed to allow for ease of connection to our
existing sewer mains.
    Minutes for the Town of Ticonderoga Regular Town Board Meeting held on
       May 13, 2010 in the Community Building commencing at 6:00 p.m.
        c. the E-1 pump is manufactured in Niskayuna, NY and parts or service for
pumps is readily available, saving the Town from having to put in stock large quantities
of parts or replacement pumps to service the districts, and

        Whereas, the efficiencies realized from standardization and the installation of E-1
grinder pumps on all future installations is:
        a. the pump design makes it easy to install on the force mains located in the
Town thereby saving labor costs.
        b. the E-1 pump has proven to be very reliable, requiring little or no maintenance
during it’s useful life, thereby reducing the repair and maintenance cost to the Town.

       NOW THEREFORE,

         BE IT RESOLVED, by the Town Board of the Town of Ticonderoga finds the
reasons of efficiency and economy set forth herein are substantial and that there is a need
for standardization of the grinder pumps used serve residents of the existing sewer
districts and those to be formed in the future, and it is
         FURTHER RESOLVED, that future specifications for force main sewer systems
formed or to be formed in the Town of Ticonderoga shall require the installation of the E-
1 grinder pump.

The Catlin claim on the Lower Bullrock Road is being researched right now.

We are looking into the Eagle Lake request for support. A few years ago they asked for
the Town’s support to hand harvest milfoil from the lake. Now they would like to use

chemical and we will be able to see what the turn out is for that lake before going
anywhere else with Eagle Lake.
