SUPERVISOR REPORT FOR WEEK ENDING 11/10/2023  Hello Wilmington! I start off this week's report thanking all the candidates that ran for office this past week. Congratulations to those that were successful in their political pursuits. I look forward to a smooth transition of my office to the Supervisor Elect.  Our towns Parks Department will soon be placing Holiday Decorations up around our community for the season. The reason we start so soon is the fact that we have so many decorations to put up that we need to start early. I love to see the Christmas decorations around our town. It [...]

SUPERVISORS REPORT FOR WEEK ENDING 11-03-23  I start out this week with an official commendation to all the volunteers, businesses, organizations that made the 2023 Halloween "Trunk or Treat" so successful. Hundreds of children and adults attended the event at the KOA property in town. A special shout out to event organizer Tina Terry Preston, for doing such an awesome job. The community spirit was alive and well in Wilmington that evening.  Honestly, I think it is a toss-up who enjoys the Halloween Festivities more, the children or the adults. For myself, I absolutely love community events like this. One thing [...]

SUPERVISORS REPORT FOR WEEK ENDING 10/20/2023  Hello Friends. The fall season is definitely in the air. In fact, Whiteface recently had snow on top of the mountain. It's a little preview of things to come. On the town level, we close out one season and prepare for the next. Splash Boards are off the town dam, beach restrooms closing, banners off the utility poles and flower barrels stored for the winter.  We as a community also prepare for the general election on November 7th. Polls are open at the Community Center from 6 am to 9 pm. However, if early voting [...]

SUPERVISORS REPORT FOR WEEK ENDING 10/13/2023  Hello and thanks for reading another weekly Supervisors report. From time to time I have people ask me how I find things to write about for my weekly Wilmington connection. I smile and respond it is simply because there is so much going on in Wilmington and the county. It really is that simple.  For example, at our meeting this past week, the town board approved several items that have been declared surplus. As surplus, the items that are listed will go to the highest bidder. The process for bidding will be announced sometime next [...]

SUPERVISORS REPORT FOR WEEK ENDING 9-15-2023  Like every community across our state, the Town of Wilmington flew our American Flag in front of the Community Center at Half Staff on September 11th this past week.  For many, everyone around that time remembers where they were that terrible day. It certainly was a time of much uncertainty and sadness. For me, I can remember our entire Wilmington community coming together at the Nazarene Church for moments of prayer and solidarity the evening of 911. Regardless of religious denomination or beliefs, it was community. It is Wilmington. It is what makes our community [...]

SUPERVISORS REPORT FOR WEEK ENDING 9-1-2023 September and the feeling of fall is in the air. I love the change of seasons and everything about it. As a town government we prepare to close the swim area of our town beach. In fact, the last day of beach operations will be Sunday September 3 rd . In spite of all the rain, it has been a good season in running the community beach. We had staff. They even showed up for work! I cannot thank our staff at the beach enough for a successful summer. The Wilmington Farmers Market wrapped up [...]
