Coun. Shaak advised that, while the First Aid Squad and the Fire Chief had agreed to a request by residents that the siren be muted from 10:00 pm to 7:00 am, a vote by the Fire Company had resulted in a determination not to shut off the siren. Since the County Dispatch could not honor individual requests it became an all or nothing proposition. However, Coun. Shaak remained confident that IT Personnel could find a means of separated the signals at the siren's control panel; he would keep Council and the Public posted on this effort.
Mayor Nicol opened the meeting to the public and recognized Peter Wright, 416 Riverview Lane, who asked if the proposed ordinance on Planning Board Alternates had been adopted. Mayor Nicol informed him that it had been and the positions would be filled at the January 3rd Organization Meeting.
There being no further comments, the meeting was adjourned at 5:47 pm on a motion by Coun. Garruzzo, seconded by Coun. Scott.
Approved: January 9th, 2012. _____________________
