Barrington town board 3/21/11

Meeting:  The Barrington town board met Wednesday, March 21, for one hour and 55 minutes.
Attendance:  All board members were present.  There were six members of the public in the audience.
Action:  The board approved Highway Superintendent Steve Wheeler to build a structure around the fuel tanks and to pay for it with the sale of old equipment and scrap.  Wheeler explained he wants the fuel tanks enclosed to prevent unauthorized access.  Supervisor Fred Wright said someone stole fuel from the highway department two years ago.  The town will put a Ford 4630 tractor out to bid and sell a 1994 Ford truck and a grinder machine for scrap.
• A public hearing was scheduled for the April 27 meeting to discuss the possible Community Development Block Grants for Barrington.  Lauren Snyder explained this hearing will be about who can apply for funds and any other parameters.  The grants are for low and moderate income housing and infrastructure improvements.
• The board approved the town justice to now use Community Bank for transactions.  Wright explained Community Bank’s hours worked better with the justice’s hours.
• The board revised the standard work day hours of Wheeler and Clerk Joy Perry for insurance and retirement filing purposes.
Discussion without action:  The board tabled action on signing the animal control agreement with the county.  Wright said he wanted to change how much money the town gives Yates.  He explained the state should get half of the collected fees.  Wright added the remaining funds should then be split evenly between the town and the county.
Appointments/resignations:  The board approved Phil Cook to be the Ag Committee chairperson.
Upcoming meeting:  The next town board meeting is Wednesday, April 27, at 7 p.m.
