The Board of Selectmen met on Wednesday, July 12.

Following are notes from that meeting:

A list of all the roads scheduled for repaving was announced. [We will post it soon. If you can’t wait, click on the OGAT Video On Demand link to the left in a couple of days].

First Selectman Jim Zeoli suggests that residents make a batter board to protect their mailboxes NOW instead of waiting until winter when the snow has already fallen.

The town is seeking bids for work that is needed on the South Wing of High Plains Community Center, including the pool area [that specifically will be done in 2018] and Orange hopes to work out a plan with the JCC and the YMCA to allow residents to use their pools while the town pool is out of commission.

Hilton Suites extended stay hotel will be coming to Orange off of Marsh Hill Road, Northbound side.
