Town Board Passes Budget for 2010

Last night a noticeably small audience gathered at the Long Lake Town Board Meeting and Continuation of the Public Hearing for Long Lake Water District #1.

The Town Board also approved the purchase of a new groomer for the 2010 snowmobile season, a front loader and approved to move forward on the State mandated SEQR to look into the purchase of property on Tarbell Hill Road from the Nature Conservancy to utilize for our water project and recreational land use.

Once discussion concluded the board voted unanimously to pass the 2010 Budget.

Long Lake continues to embrace growth as a tourist driven economy. The go ahead was made to include the new web design of # in the 2010 budget. Also included was support for two new shoulder season events, Adirondack Quilt Camp, a week of quilting workshops at the Long Lake Central School for an admission price of $230.00. Also planned will be “An Adirondack Affair” – a weekend with soap opera stars and special panel discussions about the state of soap operas today with directors, producers, writers and actors.

Also slated for 2010, the return of the Bed Races, Labor Day Weekend BBQ and cookout, continued partnership with Adirondack Lakes Center for the Arts and more Teen Center & Beach Programming, focusing on the youth of the community.
