Wayne town board 10/13/09

Meeting:  The Wayne town board met Tuesday, Oct. 13 for one hour and 10 minutes.
Attendance:  All board members were present.  There were three members of the public in the audience.
Action:  The board approved a number of budget transfers.  Supervisor Dawn Dowdle said the transfers were just to balance the account.  The transfers included $13,686.78 from summer highway salaries to summer employee leasing; $2,000 from elections contractual and $575 from unallocated insurance to watershed inspector salary, and $17 from public health contractual to public health contract.
• The board also approved the preliminary budget for 2010.  A public hearing for the budget was scheduled Tuesday, Oct. 27 for 7 p.m.
Discussion without action:  Dowdle said she has been getting calls about the water district vote.  She said it will be scheduled for Nov. 3, during the same hours as the general election.  However, she explained while voting for both will be at the town hall, it will be done separately.  Dowdle also explained that deciding who was eligible to vote was done by the names on the deeds for property within the proposed district.  She said that each person named on a deed gets a vote (even if there are more than one person listed), but someone can’t vote more than once even if they own multiple properties within the district.  Dowdle added that the deadline for requesting an absentee ballot is Oct. 24.  Those ballots must then be returned by Nov. 10, but postmarked no later than Nov. 2.  She also said that an additional U.S. Department of Agriculture $500,000 grant decreased the estimated yearly cost per household from $746 to $676.
• The town heard about putting in a rain garden, through the Steuben County Soil and Water District and Cornell Cooperative Extension.
Upcoming meetings:  The next regular board meeting will be Tuesday, Nov. 10 at 7:30 p.m.  A public hearing for the budget was scheduled for Tuesday, Oct. 27 for 7 p.m.
