* Queensbury Town Board, Monday evening
* The board passed a resolution in support of a proposal for the Lake George Park Commission to institute mandatory inspection for invasive species on boats entering Lake George. “If we love the lake, and if we think the lake is important to us, it’s something we need to do,” said Supervisor Ron Montesi. Queensbury at-Large Supervisor William Mason, speaking during the public comment portion of the meeting.
* Montesi praised the town Highway Department for using its fuel tanker truck to supply firetrucks with fuel during a fire Saturday morning at two paper recycling warehouses at 374 Big Bay Road. The Highway Department has adequate money in its budget, so it will not charge West Glens Falls Fire Department for the fuel, valued at $4,800, he said. “I said, ‘Well, let’s not let the taxpayers, who have already paid for the gas, have to pay twice,’” he said.
* The board appointed Kyle Noonan to the town Zoning Board of Appeals and Harrison Freer and John Henkel as alternates. Third Ward Councilman John Strough offered praise to former Zoning Board member Jim Underwood, whose term had expired and the board decided, informally, not to reappoint him. “I just want to send a message out to him that I appreciate his service to the community,” Strough said.
* First Ward Councilman Tony Metivier, responding to a question from John Salvador, a local resident, said town officials are working on the process of abandoning Dunham’s Bay Road. “We’re working on it. It’s moving forward,” he said. Strough said it is important to make sure abandoning the road does not inhibit traffic.
* 7 p.m. Wednesday at Queensbury Center, when the Town Board will conduct a public hearing on a proposed improvement project for the intersection of Aviation Road, Dixon Road and Farr Lane.
