Smithtown board notes: landfill cap under budget

At Smithtown's board meeting Tuesday, the board approved:

• The acceptance of a $151,789 credit from a company that capped the landfill at the Municipal Services Facility. The project went under budget.

• A lease agreement with Suffolk County to provide use of two parcels at the Hauppauge Industrial Park for sewage pumping stations.

• Advertising for a public hearing on the disbursement of county funds from the Community Development Program.

• Modification of a marine law permit for dredging activities at Stony Brook Harbor.

• The sale and closing on a building at 161 East Main St. in Smithtown. The building will house the town's drug and alcohol counseling center, Horizons.

The board held a public hearing on changes to tow-truck fees, from $50 to $100 for passenger cards, $125 to $160 for flat bed tows, as well as other changes.

The town also approved a "corrective action plan" regarding its ethics code as required by a previous audit by the state comptroller’s office.

The plan, as suggested by the audit and agreed to by the town, includes adding more in the code than the minimal allowed by law, such as prohibiting the use of town equipment for personal use, and training all employees on the ethics code as well as making those employees aware of whistleblower protections.
