APRIL 21 ANNUAL ELECTOR MEETING
7:00PM - ST. GERMAIN COMMUNITY CENTER
The Town Board will be asking electors in attendance to vote on two resolutions:
To authorize the Town to accept transfer of ownership of the St. Germain Memorial Cemetery from the St. Germain Cemetery Association. The current directors of the volunteer Association, which was formed in 1964 and has operated the cemetery since its creation, recently voted to disband effective May 1, 2020.
To authorize transferring ownership, from the Town to the Lost Lake District, of the small land parcel on which the Lost Creek Dam has been located for approximately 80 years.
Additionally, State Statutes empower town electors to conduct certain business at annual town meetings. The powers of the people are explained in excerpts from the statutes on the bottom of the Elector Meetingpage of the town website.
As reported in our January 23, 2020 outreach message,ownership and operation of the St. Germain Memorial Cemetery is about to transfer to the Town following a recent decision of the current Cemetery Association directors to disband (also see the above Annual Meeting topic in this outreach message).
State Statutes require the Town to adopt an ordinance pertaining to how the cemetery will be operated. The ordinance is scheduled for adoption at a special meeting of the town board on April 21st at 8:00PM following completion of the Annual Elector Meeting which will convene at 7:00PM. Public comments concerning the ordinance will be accepted verbally at that meeting or in writing any time prior to the meeting.
