Hector town board 11/05/09

Meeting: The Hector town board met Thursday, Nov. 5 for one hour and 15 minutes.  The meeting was held earlier in the month than usual in order to pass the annual budget.
Attendance: All board members were present. Two members of the public attended.
Action:  A public hearing was called to hear comments on renewing the contracts with five fire districts associated with the town. Separate resolutions were passed for each district: Mecklenburg fire district approved for $106,000, Odessa fire district approved for $9,068, Valois-Logan-Hector approved for $176,600, Burdett approved for $133,880, and Trumansburg approved for $42,217.49.
• A second public hearing was called to hear comments on the Hector town budget for 2010. No comments were heard and the board approved the budget unanimously, with a reservation by board member Michael Bergen over the contractual expense for Schuyler County Partnership for Economic Development (SCOPED).  The amount is $11,240, and a static amount since 2008.
• The board unanimously approved a resolution to levy delinquent water bills through the county tax bills to be issued for January 2010 payment. A total of $11,675.76 is owed the town in delinquent water billings.
Discussion without action:  Schuyler County Public Health representative, Janelle Walker, updated the board on flu preparedness, including the recent receipt of a small supply of H1N1 flu inoculations to complement the supply the hospital received. The public health department has set up an information line for residents. The number, 535-6431, is a call-back line, meaning that users record their questions and a Public Health official will return the call as soon as possible, so residents can have a personal contact.
• The board also discussed health insurance. Hector belongs to the County Consortium, which purchases health insurance for all participating municipalities. Strong concerns were expressed over the proposed increase in premiums for 2010. Initially the town was forced to plan for a 20 percent increase, but it appeared that the increase may be held to 17 percent.
Upcoming meeting: The next regular meeting will be held Tuesday Dec. 8 at the town hall beginning at 7 p.m.
