Dundee discusses fire assistance

DUNDEE—Village trustees continued discussion of fire department members assisting other departments, Tuesday, Dec. 14.
The issue is connected to times when assistance may be offered in situations other than mutual aid. Past chief Raymie Miller said he feels the firefighter should live in or work in the fire district that is being assisted. Trustee Greg Wright asked how much extra paperwork would be involved. Fire Chief Dan Petersen said members of the fire department have talked about it, but have not seen the proposed policy. He said he would like to present the proposed policy to fire department members.
In other business:
Trustees passed a resolution supporting a property tax cap that must include mandate relief. Trustees stated there is little control over pension, health insurance, or collective bargaining costs. Wright said he thinks in order for something like this to work a coalition needs to be formed to stop the nonsense.
• Health Improvement Project coordinator Lauren Snyder spoke to the board. Snyder said the organization is in the process of updating the plan for 2011. Snyder called Dundee Decreasers at the school, “Pretty successful.” She said the school district has a great facility but some people don’t know how to use the equipment in the wellness center. Snyder said the health improvement project has secured a grant for a personal trainer who will show individuals how to use the equipment.
• The board discussed the possibility of moving the new planters on Main Street for the winter. Streets Superintendent Andy Howell said he would like to contact businesses to see if the planters could be placed next to the building for the winter. There are 10 of the planters in the downtown business district.
The next meeting of the Dundee village board will be at 5 p.m. on Tuesday, Dec. 28. The meeting will be in the village hall on Union Street.
