Another issue raised was the appointments of two town residents to the Jenkins Park Advisory Board. According to Ireland, the park is "stagnant" and in need of fresh blood; however, Southworth said the appointees were already notified of their reappointment. The board decided to table the Jenkins Park appointments and conduct research into whether the number of members could be increased to include the two appointees.
Deputy town supervisor and fellow Democrat George Seymour was also sworn in again following an initial ceremony on New Year's Day. The swearing-in was repeated due to technical requirements that Seymour could not officially be appointed until Southworth announced other new appointments.
The Ballston Town Board will meet again on Tuesday, Jan. 29, at 7:30 p.m.""
