LAKE PLEASANT -- Little League baseball is making a return to Lake Pleasant.

When the Lake Pleasant Town Board met  Monday, April 21, Councilman Mike O’Connor announced that after three years of applying and re-applying to have a league the town has been accepted into the Northern Adirondack Little League.

O’Connor said Lake Pleasant will once again have two Little League baseball teams: minors (ages 8-10) and majors (ages 10-12).

O’Connor said coaches, umpires, volunteers and sponsors are needed. Contact either Crysti or Mike O’Connor at 548-2783.


Highway Superintendent Randy La Varnway reported the mud gates are up in Perkins Clearing until the road dries out.

Insulation for the garage has been ordered and the bubble wrap is on its way to be installed under the new metal roof.

La Varnway said his crew has spent two days doing repair work on Woodmere Rd.

The electrical inspection summary was handed out to the board, showing one of the big expenses is the actual electric carrier. As a result, Supervisor Neil McGovern said he will be looking into quotes from different electric carriers.


Councilwoman Nancy Germain, La Varnway and Town Clerk Deborah O’Rourke have made some updates to the Cemetery Rules and Regulations. They suggested cremation plots will now have to have flush mount monuments not to exceed 2.5 by 2.5 feet.

The board approved the suggested changes.


McGovern reported meeting with the historical society and discussed repairs needed at the museum.

McGovern said repairs needed include replacing the walkway and extending the walkway to the east side of the building for easier accessibility. There was further discussion on removing the oil burner in the back room and putting in electric baseboard heat.

McGovern said this would free up a lot of space in the back room.

Aaron Weaver showed the board a sample of what the new sign for the museum will look like. He said he will be working with signmaker Tom Boni. The sign will be double-sided and will include the figure of Capt. William Peck, a local 1812 soldier.

Historian Anne Weaver said she would like to have the sign up for Memorial Day.
