Mr. Hotelling asked the board to use the town roads for the 17th annual Laurel Run on July 20 and invited all to take part.
"On behalf of The Resource Center, Elaine, Laurel and myself we would like to thank the town and the village for their help over the years," he added.
He said in honor of Laurel's 50th birthday, the goal is to get 500 runners and walkers for this year's Laurel Run.
He said there are usually between 300 to 350 and they would like to exceed that number.
"I would just like to give my support to the Laurel Run. The town had a team last year and will run again this year. It is a wonderful event and I hope people attend," Councilman Kenneth Cross said.
The board also approved a proclamation declaring July 13 as for Anderson-Lee Library's 50th anniversary.
The town board will next meet July 22.
