Question and comments by the public present:

Karl Kuemper resident of Baxter Road asks the Town Board what can be done about his neighbor who is dumping illegally on their property on Chestnut Street. He lives on Baxter Road and is concerned the illegal dumping is polluting his Beaver pond and causing problems with his wetland area. He feels something needs to be done to stop the illegal dumping.

Jordan Clements, district manager for Otsego County Soil & Water Conservation District made a proposal to the Town Board to be pro-active for future flooding issues the Town will encounter. His proposal is an Inter-Municipal Agreement. Purpose of agreement-Develop a Countywide Stream Maintenance Program. This would be an agreement for a 5 year period beginning January 1, 2019 and ending December 31, 2023. This would require a $2.00 tax increase per taxpayer in the Town of Cherry Valley.

Motion to adjourn- Councilperson Cornwell Seconded-Councilperson VanDerWerker

Mary Beth Flint-Town Clerk
