Established October 13,1842 Town o f Greenwich Officials sworn in 2000 Organizational Meeting held Telephone [518] 692-2266 By Tony Basile The Town of Greenwich held its 2000 organization meeting Tuesday evening at the town office building. Prior to the meeting, recently elected and re-elected town officials were administered their oaths of office in a ceremony conducted by Town Attorney Alan Wrigley, as family, friends and well-wishers looked on. Upon opening the meeting, Town Supervisor Don Wilbur welcomed the board's newest councilman, Bob Jeffords. Jeffords defeated former Councilman Brent Patten in the Republican caucus, and ran unopposed in the general election. Until December 31, Jeffords served on the Village Board of Trustees. He will not be replaced in that position, since the v illage elections will be held in March. The board chose to combine its regular January meeting with its organization meeting, so the regular meeting that would have been held next Tuesday evening was canceled. The special meeting scheduled for January 18 to conduct the annual audit and to interview candidates for planning board vacancies will be held as scheduled, however. During the organization meeting, Glens Falls National Bank & Trust Co., Evergreen Bank and Trustco Bank were named as official depositories for the several funds of the town. The Journal-Press and the Eagle were named the town's official newspapers. The board reaffirmed the town's purchasing polices and set the salary and wage schedules for elected and appointed officials and town employees. The b,oard made the following appointments for the year 2000: Charles Spear - Dog Control Officer and Animal Control Officer,, Daniel O’Connor - Code Enforcement Officer, Dr. William Sarchino - Health Officer, and Melody Beecroft - Special Issues Clerk. Supervisor's appointments Councilman Bob Barber was named Deputy Supervisor. Marge Wilbur was named Clerk to the Supervisor and Budget Officer. Roxy Pemrick and Joyce Kelly were named court clerks. Elaine Kelly was named Registrar of Vital Statistics, and Cathy Sharp was named Historian. Returned check fee The board set a SI5.00 fee on returned checks issued to the town. This is a new policy, and signs to that effect will be conspicuously posted in the clerk's office.

That day Lucy, Meg, Pam and Becky went to Bradmark Communica­ tions, Queensbury, to tape a radio com­ mercial for the Girl Scout Cookie Sale. We didn't know if the people at the studio would like our commercial. They must have because the next thing we knew we were singing our jingle live on WINK 105.7!
