Town of Augusta Installs Security Cameras

Prior to their February meeting, the Augusta Town Board did their annual audit of the Town Court.


During review of the monthly bills, Councilman Jim Dowd asked whether three quotes for tree cutting services were needed. Supervisor Suzanne Collins said because it fell under the procurement limit, no quotes were needed.


The Town Clerk audit for 2021 was also completed.


The Scrap Materials policy was reviewed and adopted.


Minutes from the Reorganizational meeting were revised to state the cleaners will be paid monthly.


Collins said there was an attempted break-in at the Town Barn. Security cameras have been installed.


Collins said at the March meeting she will address salary changes for the Planning and Zoning boards members.


Board members discussed having the Highway Superintendent put numbers on the tanks. Those numbers would be applied to paperwork regarding the tanks, which Board members said would be useful for identifying fuel and the source.


Board members also requested that Highway Superintendent Phil Eaton notify them whenever there is an issue with the Town’s trucks or equipment.


Board members said they wanted to know if the employee involved in the last incident was seen by a doctor, and whether drug and alcohol testing was done as required.
