Delaware board approves wireless phone surcharge


“All preliminary work and studies will be shared with the village of Delhi,” said Board of Supervisors Chairman Jim Eisel.

A change order of more than $2 million was authorized for the new recycling equipment for the new Materials Recovery Facility being built at the Delaware County Landfill in Walton. “Necessary changes were made in the final design, mainly engineering, fabrication and installation, and fire walls,” said Sue McIntyre, director of waste management.

The Sheriff’s Office was granted funds by all supervisors except Valente to participate in the statewide “Police Traffic Services Program,” at a cost of $9,455. 

“I will vote ‘no’ because I believe the program is a blatant violation of my rights,” said Valente.

Five old vehicles were approved to be sold at an auction by the Sheriff’s Office.

Appointments were made public for the Delaware Opportunities, Health Services Advisory Board, and Soil & Water Conservation District committees. “I’ve also appointed seven members to the Finance Committee as per suggestions from the supervisors, and we will try it for a year,” said Eisel. “If it doesn’t work, we can go back to having five members on the Finance Committee.”

With the recent death of former town of Kortright Supervisor Donald L. Kerr, a resolution extending sympathy to the Kerr family was unanimously passed.

“His contribution to the county was dedicated and Donald had a head for figures,” said Hamden Supervisor Wayne Marshfield. “I listened when he spoke.”
