So as not to conflict with the Delaware County Fair the next regular meeting of the Town Board is scheduled for Tuesday, August 20, 2013 at 7:00pm.

Just a reminder: the minutes for the July Board Meeting will not be posted until after the minutes are approved at the August meeting.


It was discussed at the May 13, 2013 Town Board Meeting and discussed again and decided at the June 10, 2013 Town Board Meetings that the Meeting Minutes would not be considered acceptable for posting until they were formally approved at the following regularly scheduled board meeting.

Instead of seeing minutes posted within two weeks of a meeting, they will now be posted approximately five weeks following a meeting.

Thanks for your patience and keep in mind that you are always welcome to attend Town of Tompkins Board Meetings usually scheduled for the second Monday of every month at 7pm.

The Town of Tompkins Highway Superintendent has requested that our town copy the posting of our neighbor, the Town of Delhi, and present it as our position as well.  So here it is:

It is the Highway Department’s goal to keep Town Highways in a passable condition during the winter months.  Any type of obstruction located in the Town’s right-of-way may hinder the ability of snow removal.

In an attempt to clear the roads, our drivers try not to damage any obstructions in the right-of-way; however, that is not always possible.  Therefore, any damage which may be done to mailboxes, fences and the like, while the Town Highway Department is trying to maintain the roads during the winter, will not be repaired or replaced by the Town, but will be the owner’s expense.

Vehicles parked on the Town right-of-way are also a hindrance when trying to clear the roads of snow.  Attempts will be made to contact the owners of such vehicles so they can be removed.  However, if the Highway Department is unable to reach the owner, or if the vehicle is not removed, the Town will have the vehicle towed, at the owner’s expense.

It is also a violation to plow snow across or shovel back into a Town Highway when residents clear out their own driveways and/or sidewalks.

Thank you for your cooperation,

Ron Van Valkenburg

Highway Superintendent

Wishing you a happy, healthy, prosperous New Year!!
