Emergency operations plan adopted
NEWFANE—NEWFANE — The Selectboard adopted a local emergency operations plan at its May 4 meeting. This document is used to guide the town and its officials on procedures to follow in the event of a disaster.
Administrative Assistant Shannon Meckle said she met to review the plan with David Moore, the town’s former emergency management coordinator, and Selectboard Chair and Road Foreman Todd Lawley.
Meckle said she also received input from the town’s Emergency Management Committee.
Last year, the plan was completely overhauled, Meckle said, so “this year there’s not much to change.”
Animal control officer still needed
NEWFANE — The town still needs an animal control officer, reported Selectboard member Carol Hatcher at the May 4 board meeting.
Because the position is vacant, Hatcher said, “the Selectboard is it for now.”
None of the board members present at the meeting expressed delight at learning they were all tasked with that responsibility.

ICS 100 course spurs meeting change
NEWFANE — Selectboard member Marion Dowling asked the board to begin the June 15 board meeting an hour late so she may attend a training course for the ICS 100 (Incident Command System).
For the Selectboard to be in compliance with the National Incident Management System, all members must take the course. Although it is available online, Dowling said she wants to attend the course in person in Pittsford so she can ask questions.
The board unanimously accepted Dowling’s motion to begin the June 15 meeting at 7 p.m.
