CORNWALL — Early in the telecommunications forum that drew 75 area residents to Cornwall Town Hall on Thursday, July 11, it was announced that a number of microcell units have been attached to utility poles in town without required notice to the town.

There was little comment on the main order of business, a review of the Town Report, except for an impression offered by First Selectman Gordon Ridgway.
“I think it shows a pretty healthy level of involvement in the town’s running,” Ridgway said.
His point was illustrated by an agenda item to expand the Committee on Aging from five to seven members. The committee was recently re-established, with substantial interest, and a sixth person is anxious to help.

Learn about why your taxes went up (or down) Nov. 2 and 12

karenb@lakevillejournal.com

CORNWALL — New property tax assessments have hit mailboxes.
With these new assessments, the town’s Grand List of all taxable property in the town will drop in the next fiscal year by about 15 percent. The fiscal year begins July 1.
A drop in the Grand List means many property values are dropping, some by as much as 40 percent. Some will rise. It’s all a manifestation of a fickle real estate market. Property sales are one key basis for determining value.

karenb@lakevillejournal.com

CORNWALL — Marina Matsudaira is this year’s Superintendent Award winner at Cornwall Consolidated School.
The eighth-grader’s excellent grades and artistic, musical and athletic talent are only a part of the equation. Marina is also sweet natured, helpful and kind to others. When asked to pose for a photo, she asked that it include her little brother, Manasseh.
When asked what she wants to be when she grows up, Marina said she didn’t know yet, then asked if it had to be about a job.
The question was restated, and she answered without hesitation, “I want to be a mother.”
