Palmyra Town Board – July 26, 2012
The Palmyra Town Board Meeting took place on Thursday, July 26 at the Palmyra Town Hall. Kenneth Miller, Palmyra town supervisor, called the meeting to order at 7:01 p.m.
There was a special presentation by Dave O’Hare, representative from Integrated Services, about a file backup system for the town hall’s computer server. Two options were discussed- a cassette tape file storage system or an encrypted electronic system. The board said they would discuss the decision at a later date.
Michael Boesel, highway superintendent, gave a report for the month of July. The Department of Transportation (DOT) recently closed both the Division Street bridge and the Galloway Road bridge to cars until further notice, with no indication of when they will reopen. In the meantime, traffic detours include the bridges at Route 21, County Road 210 and Port Gibson Road. In addition, the board approved Boesel’s attendance to the fall highway conference in Rochester held from September 25-28.
