Town Business: 

Councilwoman Fisher spoke regarding the potential collaborative adult recreation program with the Walworth Recreation Department.  Councilwoman Fisher spoke about the Walworth Recreation Department publication booklets.  Walworth Recreation Department sends emails to residents as well as booklets to encourage residents to sign up for different programs available.   Councilwoman Fisher also spoke about her desire to hire a part time recreation director.  She has been in contact with the Wayne County Human Resources department to find out if this new position would have to be civil service or not.

Councilwoman Fisher also spoke about the idea of a new lodge to be built at the Marion Town Park.  She will speak to Code Enforcement Office, Duane Smeatin to arrange for plans to be drawn up.  This will help in the budget planning process.  Councilwoman Smith suggested that the Town of Marion look into getting grants for this project as well as donated services.

Councilman Lonneville mentioned that Code Enforcement Officer, Duane Smeatin will be very busy over the next few months at Jennie’s House.  Councilman Lonneville also mentioned that he will work with Amy D’Angelo regarding applying for grants for a new town park lodge.

Councilman Bliek mentioned he had been speaking with Kim Jackson at M & T Bank.  It was her thought that M & T would give the bank to the Town of Marion with the stipulation that the Town of Marion never sell the building to another bank.

Councilwoman Smith talked about her desire to host a town wide clean up.  This would include electronics and other household items.  Supervisor Deming suggested putting this project in the 2019 budget as there is not currently any money in the 2018 budget for this project.

Supervisor Deming spoke on behalf of the Lucky Dog Diner.  There has been a rumor in town that the Lucky Dog Diner is closing.  This rumor is incorrect.  Lucky Dog Diner wanted everyone to know they are here to stay.  They have no intention of closing.
