Dresden village board 4/6/11

Meeting:  The Dresden village board met Wednesday, April 6, for one hour and 35 minutes.
Attendance:  Tom McGuigan was the only board member absent.  There were seven members of the public in the audience.
Action:  The board accepted the new appointments, including Dan Egburtson as deputy mayor.  Clerk Terry Dilts also read the March election results, where Joe Gibson was chosen as the new mayor.
• The 2011-12 budget was passed.  A public hearing was held at the start of the meeting.  The only question was about when the next budget is prepared.
• Three customers who haven’t paid their water bills were submitted to the county.
Discussion without action:  During public comment, resident Tony Conley asked if the public can interject during board discussion.  Gibson said members of the public may comment on an agenda item when it is being discussed.  He said open discussion is for matters that are not on the agenda.
• Resident Hatter Reynolds added he would like to see a suggestion box established.
• The board also talked about using Skype to broadcast village board meetings.  Reynolds offered to help and said the board should talk to the village attorney.  Discussion was tabled until the next month.
• Egburtson suggested a newsletter go out with the water bills.  He also suggested bills be sent out via e-mail to interested residents.  Dilts added that some people ask about paying bills by credit card.
• Employee time cards will be looked into further as a way to track employees’ time.
• Superintendent John Stryker would like to look into replacing the two metal storage buildings at the water tank with one storage building.  Both metal buildings are rusted with holes in the roofs.  This would be bought through money left over in the water budget.
• Gibson said he would like to see a clean-up day where volunteers pick up trash along Route 54 going to Penn Yan and also have a village clean-up day.
• Zoning/Code Officer Brian Quackenbush reported he completed training at Finger Lakes Building Officials annual training at the Rochester Institute of Technology.  This completes annual service requirements for the state.
• Gibson said a meeting should be set up with Sprague Insurance and the employees to go over the high deductible options to save the village money.
Upcoming meetings:  The next regular village board meeting will be Wednesday, May 4, at 7:30 p.m.
