Montour Falls village board 3/21/11

Meeting:  The Montour Falls village board met Monday, March 21, for one hour and 20 minutes.
Attendance:  All board members were present.  There were eight members of the public in the audience.
Action:  The board approved the Montour Falls Fire Department to put information into residents’ water bills about the department needing volunteers.  Steve Lawton, volunteer and sheriff’s sergeant, said the fire department would pay for the copying and any extra postage if required.  The fire department is looking to encourage more volunteers because there are so few members.  There will be an open house at the Montour Falls Fire Department, Sunday, April 10, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.
• After going into just over 10 minutes of executive session, the board approved the union contract for three years.
• The board approved the Montour Falls library to apply for a grant through the Rotary club.  Montour Falls Improvement Association President Phil Gillemot explained it would be for a sign at the She-Qua-Ga Falls.  He also asked that if the library gets the grant, the village help by installing the sign.
• The fire department was allowed to take any of the surplus display tables for use in the department’s museum.  The board also authorized to sell a board room table, eight orange chairs, and two waiting room seating units.
• The board authorized to transfer $4,492 to reimburse the library for Main Street grant building work.  Mayor Donna Kelley said the work is now complete.
Discussion without action:  The board tabled discussion on what to do about the ladder truck.  Fire Chief Tom Carson said it needs a new radiator, which could cost between $4,000 and $8,000.  This comes after the fire department spending $4,300 to fix an axle plus $750 for new pads.  Carson said he wants to get rid of it and Kelley agreed.  He added the village can’t sell the vehicle though.  Trustee Jim Howell said he wanted to see some more prices about the radiator first.
Upcoming meeting:  The next village board meeting is Monday, April 4, at 7 p.m.
