Dundee outlines complaint process

DUNDEE—The village board discussed the procedures that must be followed when they receive a written complaint. The discussion was triggered by a letter of complaint about a sidewalk in poor condition on Seneca Street. Mayor Fred Cratsley Jr. said, “By village code, when we receive a written complaint, the board must act. It can require the owner to repair the problem.” Village Clerk Christine Sutherland said the village must give a time frame and if the problem is not fixed by that time the village will arrange to have the work done and bill the owner. If that bill is unpaid, the cost will go on the property tax. Discussion followed regarding the materials that may be used. In the case of sidewalks, concrete must be used and it must be done using village specifications.
In other business: Molly Youngman, representing the Dundee Area Historical Society, asked permission for vehicles to drive on the lawn of Seneca Street Park for a “Junk in a Trunk” fundraiser the organization plans to hold in October.  Participants would park on the lawn and sell items from their vehicles.  The board granted permission, emphasizing a special use permit for the event will be required and that vehicles should not drive on any of the park’s sidewalks.
• Four individuals were approved for membership in the Dundee Fire Department, including Adam Brewer, Brandea Miller, Juanita Schmidt and Gary Townley. The fire department includes the emergency squad.
• The board granted Boy Scout Troop  25 member Jack Jayne permission to improve the pavilion at Spring Street Park as part of his requirement to gain Eagle Scout status.
• Assistant Street Superintendent Doug Jayne said the New York State Department of Health (NYSDOH) has told the village to do nothing about the one case of Giardia that was reported, noting that the disease is typically a surface water problem. The state health department will be in Dundee next week to test water according to Jayne.
• Streets Superintendent Andy Howell said the 30 day time limit for a public referendum regarding the proposed purchase of a backhoe has expired. After discussion, the board agreed to order a Case backhoe at a cost of $72,919, using funds from the Capital Reserve Fund. The old machine will bring $18,500 in trade.
• Cratsley thanked Howell and his crew for work painting lines on the municipal parking lot on the west side of Main Street. The lines have helped alleviate problems that resulted from a lack of lines.
• Trustee Larry Howell said he had spoken to Andy Howell regarding radios or phones for communication. Andy Howell said he has been told there would be no problem with Dundee using the Yates County frequency and he is waiting to receive more information in writing. He said, “I would like to have communication with employees at all times. The initial cost would be $400 to $600 per radio. We should have done it before.” At the July 14 meeting of the board, Howell spoke about a problem that was a result of the lack of communication devices. Another problem occurred more recently.
The next meeting of the Dundee village board will be at 7 p.m., Aug. 11 in the village hall on Union Street.
