Meeting highlights. For a summary of all agenda items (drainage, towing bid, Section 8, unfinished business), visit

1. Stormwater retrofit projects
The director of the regional East of Hudson Corporation explained to Councilman Murphy why the proposed retrofit project located east of the police department building could not be relocated in order to leave room for future parking. Supervisor Grace suggested that the specs for the project could be changed to allow for Route 202 fill to be used for the project.

2. Stormwater Annual Report
Bruce Barber, the Town’s environmental consultant, presented the annual stormwater report that the Town is required to submit to the NYS DEC. A copy of the annual report is available on the Town’s web site,

3. Landmarks Committee – Proposed historic designation
J.F. DeLaperouse of the Landmarks Preservation Committee advised the Board that the owner of 3438 Old Yorktown Road (roughly opposite Copper Beech Middle School) is interested in having her house designated an historic landmark.

4. Energize program
Supervisor Grace directed the town attorney to prepare a local law to be referred out for review next week that would set up a program that could finance energy improvements in commercial buildings using third party financing but which would be paid back through the property owner’s taxes, making the loan repayment tax deductible.
