ZONING REPORT: No report.

HIGHWAY: ● Two fuel reimbursement checks were received from the Fire District: one for $171.41 and one for $53.57.
● Blue Cross is doing away with the Dental coverage and health insurance increased by 50%.
● Mr. Hanson suggested that a few towns combine to purchase health insurance. Mr. Chartrand believes NYS law prohibits that. Mr. DeMore will look into the issue and Mrs. Vilardi will contact Mr. Dave Knapp for input. Mr. Knapp is currently researching individual towns’ ability to join the County for health insurance purposes.
