On Thursday, March 2nd at 7:30 p.m. the first Town Board meeting in the new Board Room will take place. This is part of a two year town-wide project to update the Town of Webster government facilities. The Van Ingen building (former library) has had a new roof put on it, two new air-conditioning and heating units, new paint through the court house and Court Clerk areas, improvements to the Special Police space, and the added new Town Board room along with the meeting space for all future Planning Board and Zoning Board of Appeals meetings.
The space is larger to accommodate those times which require more resident participation may be needed. There is new video and audio technology that has been installed that will allow Cable Channel 12 to do more in the way of streaming live and not having residents walk up to the podium when needing to speak. This is a new and updated Town Board room which has been needed for years and will be used for many other town activities as time goes on.
In the spring our Highway Department will be putting in a new sidewalk and curbing and redoing the surface of the parking lot.
As we continue with renovations, Town Hall building will be next on our schedule. This phase will start sometime in April and all employee's working at Town Hall will be moved to the Van Ingen building for (approximately) six months. That means that all of the regular business that was once at the Town Hall will then be conducted from there. More information on that move will be coming in future columns.
So if you would like to see the new Board Room, stop in on Thursday, March 2nd or you can always watch on Cable Channel 12 which televises all Town Board meetings.
Blue Recycle Boxes
I have heard from a number of residents about recycling materials blowing out of the blue boxes on nights when it is windy. A good remedy for this is to take a black 30 gallon plastic bag and put the blue box in their to prevent your neighborhood from becoming trash bin. Or you could weigh down the material with a heavy object or rock, or wait until morning to put out the blue box. These are just some ideas that residents brought to me and asked me to share in my column. Anything that you could do to help remedy this trash from blowing around your neighborhood would be helpful and I know it is appreciated.
