Frank Winkler stepped down as Chair for the Planning Board. Harland Dye was appointed Chair at the Town Board meeting January 3, 2023.
Travis Balcom presented his application for remodeling of the Old Town Garage on Route 28 just outside the Hamlet and he will apply in conjunction with the Town through the MARK Project for construction assistance. A Restore New York Communities Initiative Grant is being sought and applications must be submitted in late January 2023.
Bud got approval for the application from the Town Board. The Andes Planning Board approved supporting the application with the letters or approvals required.
Over the next few months, the Town Board will vote amongst the candidates on John Reynold’s replacement on the Planning Board after the Planning Board discusses these candidates. Four candidates have already applied. Candidates need to be dedicated to and active within our community. Any resident of the Hamlet or Town wishing consideration should write a Letter of Interest to Bud Gladstone, Town Board Supervisor. ~
