SPECIAL TOWN BOARD MEETING
DECEMBER 20, 2004
The Town Board held a special meeting on Monday, December 20, 2004 at 6:30 P.M. to meet with Peter Haemmerlein of The Kleeber Agency. Those present were Supervisor Banks, Councilman Staats, Councilwoman Lent and Councilman Tousey. Mr. Haemmerlein presented a proposal of insurance for the Town and Fire District through Selective Insurance. The differences between coverage by Selective Insurance and our present carrier New York Municipal Insurance Reciprocal were discussed. The total premium based on information provided is $20,098.94 compared to NYMIR’s premium of $23,757.00. It was noted that there is a capitalization fee required for joining NYMIR and it is payable over five years. If the Town did change carriers at this point, that fee would still be payable to NYMIR.
The Board thanked Mr. Haemmerlein for coming and giving this presentation.
The Town Board met with the Planning Boards and Zoning Board of Appeals immediately following on the proposed zoning updates. Those present were Charles Larsen, ZBA Chairman, Laurence Saulpaugh, Planning Board Chairman, Clayton Andrus, Amandus Fuchs, Garret O'Connor, Chris Nolan, Aldo Dusman of the Planning Board, Robert Desmond and Dan Wheeler, Town Engineer as well as Town Board members mentioned above.
