Dresden village board 12/2/09

Meeting:  The Dresden village board met Wednesday, Dec. 2 for two hours and 30 minutes.
Attendance:  All board members were present. There were two members of the public in the audience.
Action:  The board approved switching health insurance to Healthy blue.  Clerk Terry Dilts explained that if employees switched to that, there would be about a $5,800 savings per year.
• The board said a dinner can be held as a fundraiser for the playground, as long as there is no cost to the village.
• The board agreed that the tennis court should be locked in the winter.  A sign on the court will say that the key is at the village office during office hours.  
Discussion without action:  Steve Stork, representative from Stork Insurance Agency, spoke to the board about Village and Fire Department policies for next year.  Fire department insurance went up to $6,984.45 in 2010, from $6,717.35 in 2009.  He said the village insurance is now $9,656.23 for 2010, up from $9,525.95 for 2009.  Stork suggested that due to the market and insurance rates for next year, the policies should be bid out again.  One change that has occurred is on mobile equipment coverage.  The back-hoe and the 2000 Ford will have to be listed under auto equipment.  Dilts and Superintendent John Stryker will get the information for Stork and he will notify the village when new quotes come in.
• Mayor Loujane Johns discussed the tree ordinance.  Dilts will revise it and give it back to the board.  The board agreed to table it until Johns returns from vacation.
• Johns said with the resignation of a zoning board member, there are only two people left on that board.  There is also one seat left on the planning board.
• Brian Quackenbush, code enforcement officer, reported that he did two building permits, three certificates of compliance, and seven rental inspections last month.  He also said one unlicensed boat and car were removed.
• Fire Chief Charlie Leach reported there were 21 students who attended the smoke diver’s course in Penn Yan.  He added the Department of Environmental Conservation had questions about the house burn, but were sent documentation about it being for the training course.
• Leach also said the fire department will be switching the Hazmat trailer and the decontamination trailer soon.  He explained the Hazmat trailer is too small and the decontamination trailer is over five years old.  Leach said he talked with the state and it is alright to change trailers.
• Stryker reported that the bearing on the leaf machine’s drive shaft was replaced.  He added the department of public works has an extra bearing for the machine now in case that needs replacing again.  Stryker also said the Chevy had a thermostat put in the engine.
• Trustee Dan Egburton’s position on the village board is up for election next year.  He will be running for the seat.
• Dilts said she is still contacting colleges about students working on the fire department’s Web site, possibly as an internship.
Upcoming meetings:  The next regular board meeting will be Jan. 6, 2010, at 7:30 p.m.  The village will hold a budget workshop, Dec. 17 at 7 p.m.
