Town of Horicon no longer allows banners advertising events on the bridge on the Mill Pond as it interferes with the flower boxes. Signage is very limited in the town, and this will be discussed at the next town board meeting on December 21st at 7PM so try to attend if you have any input or suggestions!
Job Opportunity Fair: CORRECTION: It was just The Rotary that organized the Job Opportunities Fair recently. Another will be offered in the future so contact John Nick at jmnick52[at]hotmail[dot]com or 518-858-6545 for more info. This is open to high school students and others looking for employment. Starting salaries on many of these positions is over $50,000 a year with very generous benefit packages!
Our signatures: Wayne LaMothe of Warren County Planning Board explained how our signature give our towns matching monies for each hour/each person who attends our meetings. We’d love to see more people at the Tri-Lakes Business Alliance meetings (YOU DO NOT HAVE TO BE A BUSINESS OWNER TO ATTEND but we’d love to see more business owners as you are the ones who truly profit from our efforts) so if you can make a meeting or two, please do so as it ‘s a great way to give back to your community!
Economic Development update: Brandon reported that they are starting focus groups to generate ideas that will be going out on a survey to see what is important to individuals with regards to the future of our towns.
Jaki Rainsberger of C. Raymond Davis has volunteered to be the liaison between North Warren School and the TLBA and Rotary to have the kids volunteer more and regain a sense of community. She gave a presentation to +/- 150 high school students and is hoping to get more involvement from our area youth.
A discussion was held on the need for a Town sewer system in Chestertown, how the current water system in Chester is over 100 years old and the time and expense needed to update/install these systems.
