The Red Hook Town Council held a brief virtual meeting on Sept. 8 addressing a couple of resolutions and one item of correspondence.

Wildey Road repairs

A resolution to resurface the pavement of Wildey Road, a short road off of Station Hill Road in Barrytown, was passed unanimously by the board. The project is budgeted to cost no more than $22,000.

The project is expected to be completed before Nov. 24 taking no longer than two days. The road is expected to stay open during the construction with the possibility of slight traffic delays. 

Updated fees for impounded dogs

Resolution 42 was introduced to the council to adopt a new fee schedule for dog impoundment.

The first impoundment fee is $35 plus $25 for each additional 24-hour period. The second impoundment fee, within one year of the first, is $40 plus $30 for each additional day and the third impoundment fee is $50 plus $35 for each additional day. 

In addition to these fees, the owner must also pay any expenses acquired during the impoundment such as food, shelter, and/or any veterinary costs.

The new fees were adopted unanimously.

Another movie shoot in Red Hook

The town board also discussed a request from film producer Myriam Schroeter to shoot a scene on Woods Road, north of the Edgewood Club of Tivoli and south of the fork that leads to Clermont Ave. 

Schroeter requested to shoot on either Oct. 2 or Oct. 3, explaining that only one 12-hour day is necessary. 

The request will be discussed further on Sept. 23 at the next town board meeting.
