Dresden village board 04/08/09

Meeting:  The Dresden village board met Wednesday, April 8 for one hour and 25 minutes.
Attendance:  Both recently elected board members were present.  There were four members of the public in the audience.
Action:  The board passed the 2009/10 budget after a public hearing with only one comment thanking Clerk Terry Dilts and former Mayor Roger Wadsworth for their work.  The budget has a 7.2 percent decrease in the real property tax rate.  According to the budget, the total expenses increased from $282,653 to $292,205.  Dilts said some areas in the budget got increases that normally do not, like parks, sidewalks and fire equipment savings.
• The board approved several appointments.  They included Dilts as clerk and treasurer, John Stryker as department of public works superintendent, and the planning board and zoning board of appeals members.  Current Mayor Loujane Johns noted they still had four vacancies in those two boards and for the Yates County Planning Board.
• The board approved shutting off water to several residents who were at least two bills behind in payments.  The money owed will also be added to those residents’ taxes.
Discussion without action:  Johns said she would wait till the May meeting to appoint someone to fill her trustee position.  She said she wanted to speak with a few more people before making a decision.
• Stryker reported that the village will be doing hydrant flushing April 14 to 20.
• He also said the department of public works will be working on Main Street ditches from the Abtex driveway down to the railroad tracks.  The department will also be installing a driveway pipe for a new house.
• Dilts said she had a magazine with prices for a new message board.  She invited Johns and Trustee David Wernsing to stop by and look at the options the village had.
Upcoming meetings:  The next regular board meeting will be Wednesday, May 6 at 7:30 p.m.
