INDIAN LAKE Indian Lake Highway Superintendent Tim Spring has been elected president of the New York State Association of Town Superintendents of Highways. Spring has been Indian Lakes highway superintendent for 26 years and has been active on the state association committee since 1999. Spring's election occurred at the Association's annual business meeting as part of the 2007 Town Highway Conference and Expo which hosted 450 attendees this year at The Saratoga Hotel and City Center in Saratoga Springs, NY. The Expo featured booths and equipment from a variety of companies and governmental agencies. As president, Spring serves as the conference chair. Aggressive plans are being made to anticipate increased participation next year after this year's successful event in Saratoga Springs. NYSAOTSOH promotes legislation for local roads and provides instruction in highway construction and maintenance. There are more than 1,000 members in the Association representing the 932 towns of New York State. Incorporated since 1930, NYSAOTSOH is respected partner with other like-minded organizations. Along with the New York State County Highway Superintendents Association, Inc. (NYSCHSA), NYSAOTSOH has led a successful campaign called Local Roads Matter to secure funding for local communities. Recent efforts have resulted in an additional $40 million over the past two years for the Consolidated Highway Improvement Program (CHIPs). Without CHIP's funding, many small towns would have no available funds for highway improvements. More information about NYSAOTSOH is available on their website www.nystownhwys.org .
