Montour Falls village board 9/19/11

    Meeting:  The Montour Falls village board met Monday, Sept. 19, for one hour and 25 minutes.
    Attendance:  There were four members of the public in the audience.  All board members were present.
    Action: The board approved a sewer adjustment of $365.57 for a home on East Main Street.  A one week refund was given for a camping space at the marina for $127.
    • Budget amendments were approved, including the Canal Corporation under-billing the village last year and making up for it this year.
    • Harold Brown, village marina manager, asked the board to allow eight people to stay at the marina for about an extra week after the Oct. 15 regular season ending because they have homes that have been made inaccessible by Hurricane Irene.  Mayor John King said they would allow the extension, but will need to turn off water pipes when it gets colder to prevent damage.
    Discussion without action:  Dean Hillyard, superintendent of public works, said he has spoken with Rocky Kambo, Schuyler County Cornell Cooperative Extension planning assistant, about the placement of a bus shelter.  Kambo suggested the bus shelter be placed in front of the village hall or library, which received negative feedback from the Falls Home.  Hillyard said the village suggested in front of the Montour House, where the bus already picks people up, but Kambo didn’t like that idea.
    • Developer Bruce Nelson, Scott Welliver, and Montour Coffee House owner Maggie Martin have applied for an economic development grant to turn the Shepard Niles building into an arts center.
    • King and board member Ellen Mathers said they would be attending a presentation this Thursday, Sept. 22, held by Gas Free Seneca concerning the proposed Inergy liquid storage and transfer facility in Reading.  King clarified that he was going representing himself to get more information.
    • King provided the board members with a budget status report.  He explained it is an update to the current finances that he wants to review at the next meeting.
    • The board was given information that the Mechanic’s Club was getting a renewal of its liquor license.  
    • King said he did not want to look into changing the electric/gas supplier for the village.  He explained from his own experience, any change in cost would be minimal.  The board agreed.
    Upcoming meetings:  The next village board meeting is Monday, Oct. 3, at 7 p.m.
