LPBA chooses leadership
LAKE PLACID — The Lake Placid Business Association reelected Lori Fitzgerald as its president and chose its other officers at its most recent meeting, held Nov. 10 at the Lake Placid Baptist Church.
Fitzgerald works as a paralegal at Norfolk Law in Lake Placid.
Marc Galvin, co-owner of the Bookstore Plus, was elected vice president and secretary. Heather LePere, owner of the Breakfast Club, Etc., was elected treasurer. For members of the board of directors, Tim Robinson, Wayne Johnston and Fitzgerald were elected for two-year terms. Linda Moore and Jim Koenig will continue into the second year of their terms.
Also at the Nov. 10 meeting, Lake Placid village Trustee and Deputy Mayor Art Devlin gave an update on village business. He noted that the village has hired a contractor for its major Main Street project and that a decision still needs to be made on sidewalk material. LPBA members are asked to give feedback on whether they would prefer concrete, paver stones or local granite, as was used on the Mid’s Park stairs.
Also the village reported that electric work is complete so work can be done on the system without shutting off power for all, that a wall in front of Bowlwinkle’s is almost complete, and some village staffing changes.
The village also asked the LPBA to endorse a proposal to ban on feeding pigeons and ducks downtown and sought feedback on this.
Also discussed at the meeting were a project to put in a gazebo by the tennis courts; the Holiday Village Stroll, which will still happen; a gondola purchased by the Regional Office of Sustainable Tourism, to be installed in Mid’s Park for photo ops; and a “Shop Local” message and Local Holiday Shopping Nights.
