GUILFORD The Guilford Town Board announced last night that the public swimming area on Guilford Lake will remain open during the summer of 2012.
The beach front area is part of 76 acres owned by Samuel Streiff and Helen Dobbins and has been leased to the town since 1979.
Streiff and Dobbins, who currently reside in New Hampshire, attended the April board meeting to discuss the lease in executive session.
It was productive and we really appreciate them coming to town and speaking with us, said Supervisor George Seneck.
Seneck said he received the new lease agreement last week and after reviewing it with attorney Steve Natoli, presented it to the board.
