A Town meeting has been held in New Fairfield. Residents were called on to authorize the Board of Selectmen to transfer surplus funds from the 2012-2013 fiscal year in to two other accounts. The more than $369,000 would be transferred to the unappropriated capital and non-recurring account and the Fire Company reserve account.
About $2,700 would be going to the Fire Company. The transfers were previously approved by the Board of Finance.
The Board of Selectmen will also being meeting this morning to discuss and possibly set the date of a town meeting on a hazard mitigation grant program. They will also discuss and possibly set a hearing date for a lease of Tower Hill-the communications tower in nearby Patterson New York that the town owns.
