The videotape of the March 26, 2008 town board meeting is now available for viewing on our website.
We will have some comments on our blog shortly regarding this particular meeting; but for the moment, we just have one comment regarding town board meetings in general.
Several times during town board meetings you will notice that department heads distribute handouts to all town board members; sort of an update on things they have been working on since their last report to the board. Wouldn't it be nice if these handouts were made available to the general public prior to the meeting just like the revised agenda that is always available on the town clerk's table. What's the secret? It certainly would make it much easier to know what the department head is talking about during their time at the podium.
We have been working on getting our 2008 Trash & Brush Pick-up Scheduling Program updated and it should be available within the next couple of days. We will make an announcement on this blog and our websites (New Hartford, N.Y. Online and (Concerned Citizens for Honest & Open Government) when the program is fully functional for 2008. Our program allows you to input the first 3 or 4 letters of your street name and find out exactly what dates trash and brush will be picked up on your street. You can even print out a calendar of pick-up times for your specific street...great for hanging on your refrigerator or bulletin board as a reminder.
A few days ago we mentioned that we have some exciting news for residents of Whitestown. We have been busy working on a project that is soon to be unveiled. Watch our blog this week for an "official" announcement!
