Meeting Minutes - August 31st, 2016

September 5, 2016

Guest Speaker

 

Dave Paganelli, Town of Yorktown Highway Superintendant, told us that his job is difficult, but sometimes rewarding. Paving the town roads is an expensive proposition. His department must rely on what the state and town allots for road repair. Just to pave Underhill to the Taconic costs $160,000. and there is never enough money to do all the roads of Yorktown. Roads to be repaired are chosen for reasons of quality of life and the condition of the road. The money is spread thin
over all the roads, but Dave and his crew seem to be doing a good job. There was friendly discussion throughout Dave’s presentation and we thank him for coming.
