Dundee considers virtual website

    DUNDEE—Webinar came to the Dundee village board meeting Tuesday, Oct. 25. The use of Webinar allowed trustees to view sample sites and to speak with a representative of one of the companies that creates virtual websites. Mayor Fred Cratsley Jr. said the village is interested in setting up a virtual village website. One of the benefits of a virtual website would be that constituents could have quick access to core information. The site could include items such as meeting notices and urgent information. The cost estimate was more than $3,000 for design and content. A hosting and maintenance fee of $2,400 is part of the package proposed. Trustees agreed that the price was high. Other more economical solutions will be sought. Health Improvement Project Coordinator Lauren Snyder said Dundee Central School is working on a promotional video.
    In other business: Trustee Warren Smith asked about progress for plans for a walking trail at the Spring Street park. Cratsley said he would prefer to wait until the trail can be tied into the entire park improvement project. A final location for the basketball court is still unknown. After the basketball court is completed early next year, the location of the trail can be determined. Another reason to wait is that the amount of money that remains for construction of the trail will not be known until the basketball court is completed. Cratsley said the village has time to complete the project.
    • Four bleachers at the park were declared as surplus. They will be available for purchase for fair and adequate market value.
    • Snyder said there is interest in having a “Mitten tree” in Dundee. Snyder said mittens have been made available in the past at Star Shine and Christmas for the Needy. There was trustee support for a mitten tree in Dundee at the youth center.
    • Trustees approved funding for Touch of Christmas. The annual event will be at Seneca Street Park Friday, Dec. 10.
    • A portion of the meeting of the Dundee village board was devoted to discussion of citizenship. The trigger was a visit from members of the Dundee Boy Scout troop. Cratsley summed up the goal of the village board: “The biggest goal of the board is to make our community a better place; a friendlier, safer place and a good place to live.” Trustees told the scouts why they decided to serve the community as members of the village board. Cratsley asked the scouts what they would like to see in their community. The responses ranged from a hockey rink to a swimming pool at school. Also on their list were McDonalds and Taco Bell restaurants.
    The regular village board meeting scheduled Tuesday, Nov. 8 was canceled due to elections. The village hall is the polling place. The next meeting of the Dundee village board will be at 5 p.m. Tuesday, Nov. 22. The meeting will be in the village office building on Union Street.
