Hector town board 11/17/09

Meeting: The Town of Hector met under public notice for an extra meeting, Nov. 17 at 7 p.m., to handle urgent business.   The meeting lasted over two hours.
Attendance: All Board members were present. Two members of the public attended. The supervisors from the Towns of Cayuta and Montour were in attendance. Charles Campbell, a health insurance broker representing the Finger Lakes Group, LLC and Megan Krebs, an Account Consultant with Excellus Blue Cross/Blue Shield attended for the purposes of presenting to the Council.
Action: Passed a resolution to convert short term debt from the Water District construction into a bond, an action that needs to be fully executed by Jan. 4. The resolution passed with Michael Bergen, councilman, dissenting.
• Unanimously passed a resolution authorizing Supervisor, Ben Dickens, to sign a contract with Finger Lakes Tree Harvesting Service for tree removal and trimming in Smith Park before the winter. Funds to pay for the contract come from the Smith Park reserve in the amount of $4,800.
• Passed a resolution allowing the donation of sick leave from town employees to help two co-workers who are out sick with diminishing balances in their own sick leave banks. The resolution passed unanimously.
Discussion without action:  Virtually the whole meeting was spent discussing an alternative health insurance plan for the Towns of Schuyler County. Currently, all the municipalities in the county belong to a health insurance-purchasing consortium. As of Jan. 1, 2010, towns in the consortium are expecting to pay an additional 17 percent in premiums with town employees paying more for individual and family coverage than county employees. The broker projected the cost of the health insurance option presented would save Hector slightly more than $100,000 over the projected costs of remaining in the consortium in 2010. The Town has until the end of the year to renew their consortium membership, but some time needs to be reserved for proper communication of any changes to employees and new enrollment activity. A decision is expected in early December.
