Meeting: Dundee village board met for approximately one hour on Tuesday, Feb. 23. Attendance: All trustees were present. One member of the public was in the audience. Action: Scheduled a public hearing on a proposed local law regarding minor subdivisions at 6:30 p.m. on March 9 prior to the regular board meeting.
• Streets superintendent Andy Howell reported on the continuing problem of trucks turning around in the parking lot next to the village hall and in front of the firehouse. One concern is that the area is not designed for heavy vehicles. Additional signs prohibiting this type of use were approved.
• Increased the estimated revenue to the budget to reflect funds received from the Federal Emergency Management Agency for fire department equipment.
• The board agreed to send a letter to NYSE&G regarding the village’s opposition to the upcoming closure of the NYSE&G facility in Penn Yan. Discussion without action: A letter from Yates County Sheriff Ron Spike was received requesting financial support for the Child Safety Education Program that will be offered to most Yates County schools. Businesses are being approached for funds for materials needed for the program. Trustees wanted to check to see if municipalities are allowed to provide funding for this type of program. Also noted was the fact that there are no funds in the current village budget for this item.
• Trustees received a letter from fourth grader Ryan Prior expressing his wish that Dundee had a community center. A portion of the letter stated this type of facility would bring the community together and get people in shape. He said he also thinks it would make the sports teams even better. Prior attends St. Michael’s School in Penn Yan.

Upcoming meetings: The board will meet at 7 p.m. on March 9 in the village hall on Union Street, preceded by public hearing at 6:30 p.m. on a proposed local law on minor subdivisions.
