Colonie Town Board organizes for 2009

Anne Kuthy, formerly an English teacher in the North Colonie Central School District, was reappointed to a five-year term on the Library Board of Trustees, while Jason Kramer will fill the unexpired one-year term of Naomi Glover.

Craig Apple was appointed to the Highway Safety Committee, while Ellen Rosano, Keith Woodward and Robert Ulrich were all appointed to two-year terms on the Conservation Advisory Council.

Robert Tengeler was appointed to a three-year term on the Board of Ethics and Fran O'Rourke was appointed chairwoman of the Board of Ethics for a one-year term.

Aside from the appointments, the organizational meeting included many designations. The Colonie Spotlight was designated the town's official newspaper, while several other designations for fee schedules and companies for services were assigned throughout various departments in the town.

One hundred and eight resolutions were on the agenda for the organizational meeting, most of which were adopted. A complete list of the designations can be found on the town's Web site, www.colonie.org.

The board also adopted a measure that would allow the supervisor to execute an agreement with the Village of Menands to provide fire inspection services for this year to any buildings located within the village.

"We talked to the village and this is what they want," said Supervisor Paula Mahan.

Another resolution granted Colonie Justice Peter Crummey a new advisory role in the Colonie justice system, and another sought to mend the lease dispute between the Town of Colonie and Colonie Senior Service Centers Inc.""
