Dresden meeting watch 11/5


Meeting: The Dresden village board met Wednesday, Nov. 5 for one hour and 45 minutes.
Attendance: All board members were present. There were no members of the public attending.
Action: Two public hearings were held on increasing the real property tax exemptions for veterans and to increase the income eligibility levels for seniors, that no one attended. The board agreed to the increases for both so that they now match the county.
• There is a state rule that March village elections cannot be held on the same day as St. Patrick's Day. The board voted to move the 2009 March election day to Wednesday, March 18.
• The board sent taxes on to the county for 12 people who had not yet paid. Clerk Terry Dilts said she did get one check, but the amount on it and the postage date were both wrong so she rejected it. She did say that they were down two from last year.
• After discussing the village’s comprehensive plan a little, the board decided to draft some changes and will bring them up at future board meetings.
• The fire department will be putting in a request for a ranger through the Polaris Ranger Donation Program.
• Dilts will look into and send a request to the Insurance Services Office (ISO) for them to reevaluate their fire department. The last time ISO gave them a rating was in the late 1980s.
Discussion without action: The board talked about adding some charges to their fee schedule. One that was discussed was a $250 charge to disconnect from the village water system and a $200 charge to reconnect. The board tabled any decision on the matter until new zoning code enforcement officer, Brian Quackenbush, could look it all over.
• An inter-municpal agreement was written up for use of the village’s water district by the towns of Torrey, Benton and Milo. Dilts reported that she had sent it out to the towns for their input, but has not heard back from anyone.
• Leaf pickup started last week, later than what was previously scheduled.
• Department of Public Works superintendent, John Stryker, said they now have new letters for the sign board, but they do need to order some more letters they keep running out of during use.
Bids/purchases over $1,000: None.
Appointments/resignations: Quackenbush will now be serving as the code and zoning enforcement officer for Dresden. He currently acts in the same position for the town of Starkey.
Upcoming meetings: The next regular village board meeting will be Wednesday, Dec. 3 at 7:30 p.m.
