GERMANTOWN—Streetlights are scheduled for the hamlet as early as this spring. At its meeting on January 17, the Town Board authorized Supervisor Joel Craig to request bids for the lights. On Tuesday Mr. Craig said he expected the notice to go out this week.
Bases for the streetlights were installed during the sidewalk project completed late last year, and now the town is ready to install the lights. Residents Martin Overington, who lives on Main Street, and Norman Mintz, who chairs the Comprehensive Plan Review Committee, helped choose the lighting style.
Hudson River Air Dogs may also be on the town’s horizon. Mr. Craig said that he, councilman Matthew Phelan, the town attorney and town insurance carrier met with representatives of the canine athletic sports club. Club members have done a rough site plan for dog dock jumping events in the town park, and Mr. Craig said he expects them to make a presentation at the February 21 town board meeting.
In the meantime, the 20-minute January meeting was quiet, said Mr. Craig. The board went into a brief executive session to discuss personnel, and the meeting still ended before 7:45 p.m. All board members except Ron Moore II attended, along with town staff and Mr. Overington.
The February 21meeting starts at 7 p.m. Mr. Craig said on Tuesday that he also expects Delaware Engineering to make a presentation at that meeting, on the sewer renovation that the town is considering.
