REPORTS:
Village Manager Herbek announced items scheduled to be on the next work session.  

Mr. Herbek reported that the amount of water usage is decreasing; the water table has stabilized; he will be reviewing the water situation with Tom Ferguson and thanked the community for their help in following water restriction measures.  Trustee Watkins asked if the water restrictions could be lifted in a week or so.  Village Manager Herbek replied that it will probably take longer.  Mayor Elliott added that the studies show there is adequate water available if it is used properly.  Trustee Daubney stated that some residents have indicated that they are fearful that using less water will cause higher water bills, but he has been explaining that the increased heat has caused more water use than normal, which has provided a certain level of income.  

Trustee Watkins asked if the old green sign, located by the new Village entrance sign on Rt. 129, will come down.   Village Manager Herbek replied that he would look into taking it down.

Trustee Daubney asked if the Economic Development Program could be on the next work session.  Village Manager Herbek replied that he will add it since members of the Planning Board and Zoning Board will be there.  Trustee Daubney added that members of the Chamber of Commerce also want to attend.

Trustee Daubney reported that the recent passing of Reggie Lambruschi is a loss to the Village and he offered support to members of his family.  

Trustee Daubney reported that the water level at the Arboretum is 29 gallons a minute, up from 15 a few weeks ago and appears to be headed in the right direction.

Trustee Daubney asked what is happening with Senasqua Road.  Mayor Elliott replied that Metro North is doing a re-engineering and they should be heard from when it is done, adding that he contacts them regularly to keep up to date on this matter.

Mayor Elliott added his condolences to the Lambruschi family.

Mayor Elliott reported that on Sunday, August 22nd, from 11 am to 3 p.m., a trolley tour of historic homes will be conducted each hour; details are in Half Moon Press.


Trustee Grant made a motion to adjourn seconded by Trustee Daubney and approved unanimously.  The meeting was adjourned at 9:25 p.m.


Respectfully submitted,
