In the summer of 2000, the planters in front of the DuBois Hotel were planted with flowers after the town granted their approval.This was done at personal expense and was very well received by the public. At the September 2000 town board meeting, the plan for a Minetto Beautification Committee was presented to the town board and the board members were very receptive of the idea. That fall the committee worked on getting town signs as you enter Minetto from our County Legislator. We also planted spring bulbs and decorated for the Minetto Children’s Christmas party at the Town Hall.From this simple beginning the Minetto Beautification Committee is active in Minetto year round and always seeking new members!
