Yaw questions fire truck purchase details

WATKINS GLEN—Members of the Watkins Glen Village Board attempted to keep the peace with Town of Dix Councilman Scott Yaw, over issues with a new fire truck, at their regular meeting on Monday, Dec. 6. “We didn’t try to do anything behind your back. We do want you to be informed, we do want you to be involved,” Trustee Wayne Weber said.
The Watkins Glen Village Board authorized an agreement with 4 Guys Fire Trucks at their meeting Nov. 1. A custom fire truck in the amount of $457,000 will be built over the next year to accommodate fire protection needs.
Yaw felt that the towns were left out on decision making. He personally did not see any documents relating to the vehicle, and is concerned about loan and payment options.
Watkins Glen Board Members confirmed that an agreement document was signed by Harold I. Russell, supervisor of the Town of Dix Board.
“We would not order without a signed contract,” Trustee Nick Kelly said.
In order to help solve future issues Kelly suggested that the village hold mandatory meetings once or twice a year with towns to ensure that everyone is informed.
In other business:
The village will make their final payment to Edger Enterprises Inc. for improvements to the Catherine Valley Trail. “I am very pleased with the final impact it has had,” Mayor Phillips said.
Phillips also asked the electric department to leave the snowflake decorations up on street light poles through January. She said they are so bright and add some light when the winter season gets dull.
Mayor Phillips complimented the streets department for doing a good job with leaf pick up. The department is still working on brush pick up.
The board approved 2011 parks and camping increases. The increases are as follows: daily camping went from $39 to $40, additional person’s fee will now be $4 up from $3, cable with increase to $185 from $175, lakeside parking went from $4 to $5, lakeside boat parking will now be $145 from $135, and seasonal boat storage will be $45 up from $35.
