Appointments Made At Annual Meeting
The annual organization meeting of the Village
Board was held in April, when appointments and
reappointments are made to Village positions

In a statement made at this organization meet-ing
Mayor Robert J. Sweeney said: "Section 87
of the Village Law recites that the Board of
Trustees shall meet at eight o'clock in the
evening on the first Monday in the month fol-
is known as the Annual Meeting of the Board.
"It is a .time, not only for appointments, which
activity is the sole business before the Board
at this meeting - but also to look back briefly,
in retrospect, and ahead, in anticipation, of
the activities which have engaged and will en-gage
"Of immediate note, is the appointment of a
Superintendent of Public Works - a position
which has been vacant for many years in the
Village structure. This Board is extremely
pround of its 'inside* operation which has won
it acclaim throughout the municipalities of
our State. We sincerely anticipate that the
restructuring of the 'outside' chain of command
will afford an efficiency of operation which
can make for an unbeatable municipal team.
"In the areas of anticipated activity we are
all aware of the need for remedial action in
our North Main Street area and the total of the
Board's efforts will and are being exerted to
arrive at a solution to that most pressing
"Of equal concern are two important areas of
activity - our incinerator and our sewer plant
system. We are all aware of the ecological em-phasis
of the times - but may be unaware-.of.-the...,
impact such emphasis is having on our pocket-books.
"We are faced with the problems of expanding
our incinerator plant - or going into the Town
system, and of modernizing our sewer plant - or
going into the County system. These are not
easy decisions - they cannot be dealt with light-ly

periodic flooding of our southern streets. Be-

we'll ever really solve that problem in its en-tirety
- but it cannot be ignored - and the e-limination
of such a problem is expensive.
"We have just awarded bids on the Hanse Park
Community Center - and sincerely hope and pray
that its completion will in some way tend to
ease the unrest of our youth and give solace to
our senior citizenry.
"There is much that has to be done - and we,
this Board, pledge our utmost efforts to accom-plish
"Before we begin, we, as a Board, want to sin-cerely
thank those dedicated Village employees
who effectively do the job of running the Vil-lage
- and the'men and women who serve on the
Commissions and Committees of the Village -
without whose cooperation and help - our tgsk
would be insurmountable.
"We ask God's blessing on our efforts in this
coming year - and will do our best to deserve
