Clifton Park board grants parks and rec ability to hike fees

She said she wanted the resolution for clarification.

"It was too much of a gray area," Kramer said. She said it was difficult to know what was within her power.

There was some question over whether the board was able to delegate this power, but Town Attorney Thomas McCarthy said that vesting the power in the director would not be a fiduciary breach of town law.

Barrett said the debate was really over expectations and that adding a clause to the existing resolution would be beneficial.

Kramer said she was satisfied with the amended resolution.

"However the board wanted to do it; I would have been satisfied," she said.

The town also passed two other resolutions at the meeting. The first accepts a donation from Timothy Bishop of .5 acres of land on Moe Road Rear. Barrett said that the piece of land, adjacent to town-owned open space, might be of "some strategic use in the future."

Kate Maynard, the town's director of planning, agreed. She said that the land is a trail connection point and wetland preservation.

The board also hired Mark Kazmierczak as assistant building inspector at the Wednesday meeting.""
