● First Aid Squad building — Mayor George Hutnick said the Ogdensburg First Aid Squad has “folded” and is very close to finishing the transfer of the EMS building to the town. The borough has donated all of the squad’s first aid tools to surrounding squads and will also donate one of the ambulances. The second ambulance will be used in house as needed.

● Main Street development — The council unanimously adopted an ordinance to develop the center of Main Street.

● Officers’ fees — The council introduced an ordinance to amend requirements and fees for borough officers when they perform quasi-public police services. A public hearing on the ordinance will be held on Monday, Feb. 22.

● Fire marshal — Hutnick said their current fire marshal will continue in the job until April. If Sussex County does not step in, Ogdensburg may have to turn everything over to the state.

Councilman Anthony Nasisi was absent.

Ogdensburg’s next budget meeting will be March 1.
