Meeting: The Dundee village board met for one and one quarter hours, Aug. 10 followed by an executive session to discuss employee contracts lasting approximately 25 minutes.
Attendance: All trustees were present. There were no members of the public in the audience.
Action: Canceled the Sept. 14 meeting of the village board. It is Primary Day and the meeting room will be used for voting. The Sept. 28 meeting will remain at 5 p.m.
• Tabled a resolution regarding a fire department bylaw on changing the age limit from 18 to 16 to join.  This will give the trustees time to study recommended changes. Fire Chief Dan Peterson said the department received a letter from Attorney Ed Brockman regarding the Fire Company and provisions for changing the age limit for members from 18 to 16. Peterson said most area fire departments no longer have junior fire programs.
• Agreed to put materials out for bid for the Water Street water main replacement project. The village does not have final approval from New York State for the project, but seeking bids may be done.
Discussion without action: Mayor Fred Cratsley Jr. said the planning board will be reviewing the parks and recreation, as well as peddling and soliciting sections of village code. Members of the planning board will attend the Aug. 24 meeting of the village board.
• The final brush pickup for the year will be Sept. 20. Residents were asked to keep leaves out of ditches.
• Cratsley announced no hunting signs will be posted. Hunting is not allowed on village property.
• Trustee Greg Wright asked for an update on the park grant. Clerk Chris Sutherland said she is working on bid specs but work can begin on the trails. Discussion followed and Cratsley said the village is looking for community members to get involved in the project. He said a meeting between himself, Streets Superintendent Andy Howell and Sutherland is needed. There is an issue with locating the basketball court and use of the old playground equipment.
• Howell told the board he met with DCS officials regarding issues connected with parking and access for the water pit. If funds in the current capital project at the school are available items such as an ambulance entrance at the football field might be bid out
• Wright said New York State Department of Transportation has posted 90 decibel limit signs at the edge of the village. In recent months, the village has received complaints about excessive noise from trucks traveling through town.
• Cratsley said engineers for the village, Barton and Loguidice, are working on  the ranking responses the village received.  Dundee applied for assistance on a water main replacement project.
Upcoming meetings: The next regular meeting is Aug. 28 at 5 p.m. in the village hall on Union Street.
