Cochecton carries on

During Cochecton Youth Commission (CYC) liaison Ed Grund’s report on the group’s monthly activities, reflecting large turnouts for scheduled events, CYC board member Hennessy interjected that sustained high interest in commission events has prompted the board to plan more ambitious outings in the future.

Trips to New York City to attend the theatre and other cultural and entertainment events are in the works, as are trips to Binghamton for ice hockey games.

Upper Delaware Council (UDC) liaison Larry Richardson’s report on the last meeting of the council included its decision to suspend its operations on October 25 and place its staff on unpaid furlough for the duration of the government shutdown.

Until the UDC resumes operations, Richardson will forego the $100 monthly stipend he receives from the town for his liaison duties.

Maas recessed the meeting until 7 p.m. on October 27, when the board will meet for a 2014 budget workshop session and will work with acting town attorney Karen Mannino to draft several legal documents, including a shared services agreement with nearby towns.
