Efficient government in Lumberland

GLEN SPEY, NY — The Lumberland Summer Youth Program will be in action this year. At the Lumberland Town Board March meeting, supervisor Jenny Mellan reported that the day camp will open, free for children from Kindergarten through sixth grade, and will be held at the Mackenzie Elementary School in July. Children whose grandparents live in the town can also attend as long as they sign up. At the camp, children participate in arts and crafts, sports, science projects and more. Program and information is available on the Lumberland Summer Youth Program Facebook page. 

The board also discussed the following:

• To complete road maintenance projects, a 65-foot, all-wheel-drive manlift from Lorry has been approved to be rented at a cost of $2,000 per month. 

• Charles Nystrom has been appointed the full-time building inspector code enforcement officer. Nystrom is a New-York-State-certified code enforcement officer and the current Sullivan County civil service code enforcement officer. 

• A resolution was passed to transfer $25,000 from the general fund to the highway equipment reserve fund for future purchases of highway equipment.

• A resolution was passed to transfer $13,750 from the general fund to a reserve fund that was created for purchases of constable vehicles. 

• The Length of Service Award Program was approved to allow up to five additional credit points to volunteer firefighters and ambulance workers during state disaster emergencies.  

• Changes were made to the building department’s fee schedule. The current roof repair section is now titled reroofing for $70 and the portable storage units of $40 are listed under new construction. 

• The spring clean-up day in Lumberland will take place on Saturday, May 15 from 8 a.m. to 12 noon at the highway garage, located at 989 Proctor Rd. in Glen Spey. 

• Reservations for the pavilion at Circle Park aren’t being accepted quite yet. Mellan said she wanted to learn what the governor’s plans for large outdoor gatherings are, so applications won’t be open until April. 

• Due to licensing rights, movie nights in Circle Park are unlikely this season. 

• Information as to whether payment, installation and more is still needed for veterans’ memorial flags to be on display in Lumberland Township. 

• Applications for the Adopt a Highway Program from the Department of Transportation are available in the town clerk’s office.
