Montour Falls village board 09/21/09

Meeting:  The Montour Falls village board met Monday, Sept. 21 for one hour and 30 minutes.
Attendance:  All board members were present.  There was no public in the audience.
Action:  The board approved a street/curbing project for Ayers, Washington, and Clinton Streets.  Mayor Donna Kelley said they had the Consolidated Highway Improvement Program (CHIPs) funds to cover the work.  Board member Phil Smith said the village should use the CHIPs funds to make sure they get more next year.  Kelley added the work needs to be done by Oct. 15.
• The board also approved the Route 224 bridge replacement project.  Kelley said it includes relocation of the waterlines during the work, which would be next year.
• The agreement between the village and the library was renewed again, until Dec. 31.  Kelley said both the village and library attorneys want to wait until the State Historic Preservation Office looks at the agreement, before transferring ownership of the library to the library board.
Discussion without action:  Bud Kippe, temporary code enforcement officer, gave a report on what has been doing.  He said he wants to give out color coded building permits.  Kippe also said he is working on a pamphlet to leave at the village office concerning when someone needs to obtain a building permit.  He said he is working towards getting regular office hours in Montour Falls.  He also said he wanted to tell the board he is submitting his resume to Elmira Heights for a third time.  Kippe said if he got the job he would continue to work with the village for a while or help find someone to replace him.
• The board was presented with the new zoning map.
• The board discussed where to send Lance VanAlstine for water operator training.  Kelley said there was a five day course in November at Morrisville that costs $700.  She said the one at Corning Community College in December was canceled before due to not enough people signing up.  Trustee Jim Howell asked Clerk Suzanne Casselberry to look into the classes again because the one at Corning was only three nights.
• Kelley said a woman at the village marina was caught with two marijuana plants Friday.  She said the people are no longer allowed on the property.
• Trustee Phil Gillemot reported on the Harvest Festival meeting he attended.  He said the event would be Oct. 10, closing off West Main Street for most of the day.
Bids/purchases over $1,000:  None.
Appointments/resignations:  None.
Upcoming meetings:  The next regular village board meeting will be Monday, Oct. 5 at 7 p.m.
