Geraghty announced that two local residents, Kathleen Ferullo and Alan F. Smith, have applied for an appointment to the local Board of Assessment Review. Both will be considered for one position on Board of Assessment Review that is open as of September. Ferullo now serves on the board.
A bid was received for one 216-acre parcel of the town watershed land from J & A Lake George Properties in the amount of $99,500. This bid was rejected and the Supervisor will look into whether the Board can negotiate a higher bid price with the sole bidder. This property for sale is located off Alden Avenue.
A report from the town assessor noted that the town has obtained an equalization rate from the state of 100 percent this year, which indicates the town assessor is arriving at accurate figures, Geraghty said.
