Sangerfield Town Hears Pitch About More Solar Energy

At their April meeting, the Sangerfield Town Board saw a presentation about solar energy.


Gloria Ford, senior energy consultant for Energy Partner Consultants, presented the benefits of becoming a solar community member. All Town of Sangerfield residents are eligible.


Farmers and families in the Town of Sangerfield could save 10 percent and signing up is free. There are no fees.


The information will be available to the public on the Town of Sangerfield website soon.


Highway Superintendent Karl Buschor reported tree work is continuing in the town.


He would like to complete road paving this summer on .72 miles on Bailey Lake Road. Cost would be $68,292.64 to be spent on the paving materials from Hanson.


Board members approved the work.


Discussion came on using ARPA funds regarding equipment purchases and if the final rules for spending the ARPA money have included equipment purchases. The town would have to show loss of revenue to use the money in the general fund.


Town Clerk Mary Belfield will ask for clarification and other towns how they are spending the money.


Assessor Phil Barnes, Jr. reported he has turned in the tentative assessment roll to Oneida County. He is continuing with his training.


The marque sign will be on hold until next meeting. Parking lot lights will be changed out when the sign is installed.

Belfield has found a dog control agreement from the Town of Kirkland to adopt. She will have it ready for the May meeting.


The Board voted to resume offering the meetings via Zoom as residents have asked to be able to follow. Cost to the town is about $180 a year.
