When the Clarkstown Town Board meets in its monthly workshop session tonight, the highway department will account for two of the agenda items. The parks & recreation department and police department will also be included.
Clarkstown Police Chief Michael Sullivan will present the monthly reports on crime statistics. A commemorative gift program involving the town and the parks will be discussed. Recreation & Parks Superintendent Jo Anne Pedersen said the Parks Board & Recreation Commission wants to present the possiblity of installing commemorative plaques. She said the idea would allow residents to fund the cost of a park bench or a tree that would have a brass plaque in someone's honor or memory.
Information about bids for the town's proposed highway paving and concrete repairs will be presented.
The town board is expected to receive information on a proposal to consolidate the under the umbrella of the highway department. Currently, there is a garage for the highway department, another for the Mini Trans buses and a third for police vehicles. Earlier this year, Supervisor Alex Gromack announced a study would be conducted on the possibility of consolidating the garages as a cost-saving measure. A public hearing on the proposal has been scheduled for June 19.
The workshop begins at 7:30p.m. on the second floor of town hall.
