Veteran asks for tax exemptions

DUNDEE—Bradley-Jessup American Legion Commander Tom Boorom had a request for the village board at their meeting, Tuesday, Nov. 9.
Boorom asked the trustees to revisit property tax exemptions so that Cold War veterans could also receive the exemptions. Currently tax exemptions are available for veterans who served in times of military conflict. Boorom said New York state has approved the change, but it is up to municipalities to implement. The period in question is roughly from May 1975 through August 1990, according to Boorom.
A percentage would be imposed with a maximum of $5,000 allowed. Trustee Judy Duquette asked village Clerk Christine Sutherland how many veterans would be affected. Trustees voted to table decision on the matter to allow the group to look into it further.
In other business:
• Mayor Fred Cratsley Jr. recommended the board reject both bids received for the baseball field lighting on Spring Street. Cratsley said some of the needed forms were not filled out by either bidder. The lights will be paid for through a grant the village received from New York State Office of Parks, Recreation and Historic Preservation.
• Three new Christmas decorations have arrived. Cratsley asked trustees if they would like to have a Christmas tree in front of the village office this year. Duquette announced Touch of Christmas will be Saturday, Dec. 11.
• Approved a request from Streets Superintendent Andy Howell to spend approximately $1,000 for materials and labor needed for roof work on the town barn. The board put a purchase policy in place earlier this year that requires board approval for purchases over $250.
• Howell said leaves will be  picked up, weather permitting.
• The village received one bid for tree service. Fisher Tree Service bid $8,950 for removal of   13  trees on village streets and $3,325 for four trees in the cemetery. Howell said the bid for the cemetery is high because of the difficulty in removing trees there. The number of trees that will be removed may be lowered because there is less money in the budget than the bid total.
• Assistant Streets Superintendent Doug Jayne said the search continues for the leak in the new water line on Water Street. The project is still below budget.
• Accepted Connie Prior’s resignation from the zoning board of appeals.
The next meeting of the Dundee village board will be at 5 p.m., Tuesday, Nov. 23 in the village hall.
