• Food Pantry Director, Amy Garretson requests a copy of Community Center events sent electronically if possible

Town Facilities:
• Supervisor Garretson received a call from Town Attorney, Will Green, regarding the appraisal amount for the Gates Cole building. Attorney Green is going to draft a letter stating the amount will be locked in for the next 3 years as long as the building remains the same. If improvements or additions are made to the building then a reevaluation will be warranted. Gates Cole will also not receive back taxes.

Community Center/Alden Fields and Park:
• Biddy basketball is going well

Health Center:
• Supervisor Garretson and Maureen Kuhn, FNP at the Health Center had a meeting recently with Frank Partenza, Frank Panzerella, Steve Hennigan, Mark Horton and Joe Sellers to see if Bassett can help with the Health Center operations with regards to billing and capturing revenue. They all agree they want to keep the Cherry Valley Health center as the Cherry Valley Health Center. Because the CVHC is a rural health center this separates them from Bassett being a regional Health Center in terms of billing for services.
