2024-02-16T19:16:19+00:00February 16th, 2024|

SUPERVISOR'S REPORT FOR WEEK ENDING 2/16/2024 Greetings- I had an excellent lunch on Tuesday at the Methodist Church Friendship Hall. Chicken Breast with peppers and melted cheese, roasted potatoes, spinach, and a brownie. There was good conversation too (wildlife, travel, etc.). After the brownie, it was not easy rush back to the office. My thanks to everyone and I look forward to a meatloaf lunch very soon.  Help for Neighbors with Winter Fuel Bills The Jay, Wilmington and AuSable (JWA) fuel fund was set up to provide extra help to residents with their fuel bills.

SUPERVISOR'S REPORT FOR WEEK ENDING 2/9/2024 Greetings- Hope all have enjoyed the nice weather this past week, with the sun out and blue skies. But I won't get fooled again. Years ago, I came home from living in California and bragged how the California weather had followed me-70 degrees and sunshine in February and March. Wrong!  Ice Rink Which leads smoothly to the next update. The nights had been cold enough to maintain the ice this week, but maybe not over the weekend. It will be checked tomorrow morning and if skateable the skate area will be open.  Housing Update The [...]

SUPERVISOR'S REPORT FOR WEEK ENDING 2/2/2024  Greetings-  Thanks to all for helping with my first month as supervisor. The learning curve would have been steeper without the help and patience of the department heads, town employees and other town supervisors.  More calendar information. The weather has not been helpful for skating, or much winter fun, except for helping conserve the amount of firewood.  Public Meetings  There is a special meeting called for February 6, 2024, at 5:00 pm to discuss the changes to the Short-Term Rental law proposed by the committee who worked on this last year. The board will go [...]

SUPERVISORS REPORT FOR WEEK ENDING 1/19/2024  Ice Skating  The cold weather and breaks from the winter storms has let the Parks Department employees (J, A and B) get the rink into shape and open. There are night lights for evening skating.  We ask that all skaters be courteous to other skaters and for cooperation so recreational skaters can share the ice with those who want to play hockey. And don't throw snow on the ice-it has been difficult enough to clear snow that dropped from the sky!  Volunteers  Thank you to those who have contacted me about their interest in volunteering.

SUPERVISORS REPORT FOR WEEK ENDING 1/12/2024  Greetings Everyone--  Weather  There are winter storm warnings issued for tonight and tomorrow. We will pass on any updates this weekend via the town Facebook page. Wilmington got its first accumulating snow last weekend and on Tuesday and Wednesday heavy snow, then wind gusts, then rain. The rain made the roads look clear, but the water was hitting cold surfaces and icing up.  So, thanks again to the highway and parks department for keeping on top of the changing conditions and making sure the highways, sidewalks and town properties are maintained during these swings in [...]

Hello Friends! Our 16th Annual Wilmington Christmas Celebration is now in the books.

We even put Supervisor Elect Smith to work assisting Santa with gift delivery.  In other news, I held my final Town Board meeting as Town Supervisor this [...]

SUPERVISORS REPORT FOR WEEK ENDING 11/17/2023  Hello Everyone, Recently Haselton Lumber Company announced it had been sold to Zach Marshall. As taken from their notice on the sale, Haselton Lumber Company has been a fixture in the Adirondacks for the past 123 years. That statement is so accurate. In fact, I would go a little further, Haselton Lumber has been an important part of Wilmington's growth and history for the same time period. On a personal note, I appreciate all the community support the Haselton Family has given our town over the years and generations. The Family's name can be found [...]
