Dresden officials looking for candidates

Meeting:  The Dresden village board met two hours and 15 minutes, Wednesday, Dec. 3 Attendance:  Ron Merritt was the only board member absent.  There was one member of the public present.
Action:  The board approved the fee schedule with changes to it.  A few people had complained to clerk Terry Dilts about a fee they were charged for the minimum bill at disconnect from the water lines.  This minimum charge has always been there, but more people have been disconnecting for the winter and did not know about it.  The board decided to leave this fee on the schedule.  They also made the price of grave opening for both village residents and nonresidents the same at $50.
• Dilts will be sending the towns of Benton and Milo lists of their residents that are in Dresden’s water district.  They both responded to the inter-municipal agreements Dilts sent them by saying none of their residents are hooked up to Dresden’s water.  The town of Torrey has agreed.
• Mayor Roger Wadsworth and trustee Loujane Johns decided the village should not join the new Seneca Lake Pure Waters Association just yet.
The board approved paying for Dilts to go to a grant writing workshop.  By signing her up now, it will cost $299 instead of $343 if they had waited until January.
• The board decided not to get the village attorney involved with a money issue with Dell Computers.  Instead they will seek some advice from the Council of Mayors.  Two years ago the village had two laptops repaired.  Part of the payment, $771.72,  was sent to the wrong department at Dell, but they never forwarded it on to the correct place.  Dilts said since then Dell has added interest on what they owe.  She had contacted the Attorney General’s office and called Dell numerous times but can not find out what happened to that payment.
Discussion without action:  Wadsworth wanted to remind people that both he and Merritt will not seek reelection for their positions on the board again.  Their terms run out March 31, 2009.  The village needs people to run for the positions.  The deadline for party petitions is the end of December and for nonparty it is the end of January.  Petitions are available at the village office.  
• Fire Chief Charlie Leach has one house to burn down.  He said he wanted to make a training exercise out of it and will talk to Glen Miller, director of Emergency Management.  Leach also said he wants to have the Insurance Services Office (ISO) there so they can make the house fire part of their insurance reevaluation.
• John Stryker, Department of Public Works superintendent, said he will be sending out a letter next year when it comes time for leaf pickup.  People were putting sticks in their leaf piles and that blew out the motor.
• The board heard from Steve Stork about insurance for the fire department and village offices.
Bids/purchases over $1,000: 
None. Appointments/resignations:  None. Upcoming meetings: 
The next regular board meeting will be Wednesday, Jan. 7 at 7:30 p.m.
