POTSDAM TRUSTEES RECEPTIVE OF INFORMATION KIOSK IDEA—SUNY Potsdam Political Science student Sam Mc.Caffrey presented the board last week with his work over this semester about having central posting locations for notices of a non-business, non-political nature. He suggests a first, experimental kiosk at 25 Market Street, a well-lit location that would not have its windows obscured by the kiosk. Mc.Caffrey says the cost could be less than a thousand dollars each, delivered if the board chooses recycled materials. He says having a place to post information about concerts and the like would cut down on littering and clutter through having such posts at inappropriate locations, such as lamp-posts.
