Agenda's attachments released by councilman

The matter of agenda attachments is not part of the agenda for the meeting, but board members sometimes bring up topics under "new business" that are not scheduled.

The Town Board will tackle a number of issues at the meeting, including the possible issuance of more than $1.8 million in bonds included for paving of town roads, the purchase of four police vehicles and equipment for the water and sewer departments.

Most of the bonding was included in the 2010 town budget, but $365,000 of Town Hall maintenance is a new expense town officials say needs to be completed this building season.

Masonry renovations, office renovations, the replacements of the roof over the courts building and customer windows for the Department of Public Works and Building Departments are among the work that would be bonded for.

Messina said about a month ago, water was leaking into the town court.

"What happened here is something that really should have been addressed a while ago," he said. "Water was running in the roof and coming down where the witness stand is."

The HR department's offices will have to be expanded to make way for two new employees, as well.

The 2010 budget included $60,000 for Town Hall renovations.

The Town Board will meet 6 p.m. at Bethlehem Town Hall.
