Dundee gets agreement with state

DUNDEE--The Dundee Village board met Thursday, March 16 and unanimously passed a resolution allowing the New York State Police to lease their satellite office at 18 Union St.
The arrangement calls for an annual rent of $2,000 beginning March 2017 and ending February 2022. It includes a clause holding the troopers financially responsible for $18,054 in repairs and upgrades to the facility including painting, carpeting and the paving of the parking lot.
Dundee Village Mayor Fred Cratsley Jr. said he is "happy" with the new agreement. He said it took some time, but the arrangement seems fair and he is glad the troopers will remain in Dundee.
Dundee Village Clerk Chris Sutherland said it is important that the costs for the satellite office do not fall exclusively on the Dundee village since the state police service a wide area. "It was time for them to pay their share," said Sutherland.
The troopers had been using the building since the mid 1980s. The board sent them a letter in April 2016 asking for compensation for the space. They asked them to pay for the recent paving of the parking lot and to pay for upgrades to the building going forward.
The last lease agreement negotiated in 2011 had allowed use of the building for the sum of $1 and the village had paid for all repairs and maintenance.
In other business, the village board unanimously passed a resolution waiving the tax cap. The board does not expect to go over the tax cap but they waived it in order to avoid possible violations due the complex paper work.
Our Town Rocks (OTR) Project Coordinator Caryl Sutterby asked the village to officially recognize her organization as a budget line item and to include OTR on the board meeting agenda. She also asked that a board member be designated as a liaison to the OTR community development program. Sutterby noted many grant proposals positively weigh this kind of community support. Cratsley called OTR a "huge success for the community" and the board agreed to consider her proposal.
Adam J. Hunt of the non-profit Keuka Housing Council in Penn Yan gave an update to the board regarding the renovation projects going on at 12-20 Main St. and 7 Hollister St. in Dundee. He told the board asbestos had been found in many parts of the buildings, causing a cost overrun, possibly as much as $300,000 over the initial budget. The organization is applying for grant money to cover the cost of the overage. Keuka Housing Council, Inc. is a rural preservation company, certified housing and urban development counseling agency, and a community housing development organization.
The board approved bidding for the village of Dundee water main replacement project. They also established a grievance procedure for Americans with Disabilities Act complaints.
