This past week was a busy meeting week here at the Town of Jay.  On Wednesday evening, the Planning Board met with Councilman Coolidge and Councilman Forbes to start discussions about our town’s planning rules and regulations.  They will be meeting at the end of the planning board meetings to discuss updating these regulations. Also on Wednesday, Councilman McDonald and I met with Councilman Aubin and Councilman Wilkins from the Town of Black Brook, Rob Wick from Essex County Community Services, and MJ Engineering about the advantages of applying for funding to complete the Lagoons Upgrades in conjunction with our disinfection upgrade.  We decided we would need to hold a special meeting to discuss this issue, the date is to be determined soon.  The last meeting that was held this week was a very productive and well attended Regular Board meeting.  The video of this meeting is available on our website and a draft of the minutes will be posted soon.  

I would like to remind you; Ironman is this Sunday.  There will be delays and road closures associated with this event.  In the Town of Jay, the roads that will be affected will be Route 9N and Route 86 from the 4-corners in Jay to Keene (Route 9N) and to Wilmington (Route 86).  Traffic will be one way on these roads from 7:00am until 5:00pm.  You can travel from Wilmington to Jay and Jay to Keene.  If you need to reach Wilmington from Au Sable, please go Silver Lake Road to Bonnieview Road.

It is a busy time of the year for the Jay/Black Brook Youth Commission.  The Summer Youth Program is in full swing at the AVCS Middle/High School, and continues to be a huge success with the towns of AuSable and Chesterfield.  Soccer sign-ups are underway. If you have a child interested, please stop by either the Town of Jay or Town of Black Brook office to get an application, or fill it out online here:  Clinton County is also looking for referees for the upcoming soccer season.  If you are age 14 or older, we could use your help as we are often looking for referees in our area.

Lastly, if you are a business and want to be found by tourists in the area-  ROOST has an app, called Adirondack Wayfinder.  This was brought to the attention of the Board of Supervisors last week.  There are several routes to help customers find your business.  If you want more information, or notice you are not on this app, please contact my office so I can bring it to the attention of ROOST.  I hope this will increase traffic to our neck of the woods!

Have a great week,
