The Arcadia Town Board meeting was opened with the Pledge of Allegiance, Roll Call, and approval of the minutes from the previous meeting.
The Assessor’s Report was reviewed noting 31 home sales this past month, and two upcoming projects including a multi-family unit on Hope Avenue and a new construction on Legendary Way that includes a PILOT agreement.
The Highway Report stated that the slow start to the snowfall season has been helpful in keeping the department under-budget to date.
During Communications, Todd Freeman of Solar Farms New York presented the Board with information on partnering with the Town to encourage community solar enrollment; this enrollment saves customers 5% on their NYSEG energy bill, with Solar Farms New York making a $50.00 contribution to a local group for each customer enrolled.
The Board will consider adding information on this opportunity to the Town website.

The Regular Meeting was then reopened.
There was no new information available on the PILOT agreement through the County for the Community Solar Project.
