Dresden village board 05/05/10

Meeting:  The Dresden village board met Wednesday, May 5, for one hour, plus an executive session lasting another hour.
Attendance:  All board members were present.  There were seven members of the public in the audience.
Action:  The board approved the village to be the lead agency for the State Environmental Quality Review (SEQR) to extend the permissive water service area.  The extension would help the town of Torrey if the municipality wanted to supply water to some town residents.
• The board approved taking bids for a Vehicle Exhaust System in the firehouse.  The cost would be covered under the 2009 Assistance to Firefighters Grant.
• Creation of a stationary installment bond was approved, for siding on the village building.  The board also approved assigning bank signers.
Discussion without action:  Mayor Loujane Johns said the village will take bids to remove the trailer at 1,000 Firehouse Ave., the property across the street from the firehouse.  She added that the county awarded the property to the village at no cost, unless Dresden wants  to sell the piece of land.  Clerk Terry Dilts will talk with the auditor about putting the property on the village books.
• Johns said the dispute with Dell Financial Services has been settled and the village owes nothing.
• Trustees David Wernsing and Tom McGuigan have to complete a class for emergency preparedness.  It is required by the National Incident Management System (NIMS).  The class can be taken online.
• The town of Torrey will hold a Memorial Day parade, Monday, May 31.
• Dilts applied for a 2010 Assistance to Firefighters Grant.  The fire department wants to replace “Rescue 3.”
• Highway Superintendent John Stryker said spring street pickup is going well.  The department of public works only has to pick up brush and leaves once a week this year.
• The DPW will be doing hydrant flushing from May 7 to May 12.  Stryker said the New York State Department of Health wants to make the process longer this year, so the village can get by-product levels down.
• The DPW reported needing a water tank for watering trees.  Stryker said it currently takes between two and three hours to water trees, but will take longer after all the trees are planted.  Stryker provided prices for various tank sizes and pumps.  The board made no decision.
• Stryker said by the meeting the DPW had planted 10 trees and would do four more the next day.  He added four more are on order, but that would be it for this year.  Johns said the funds for this were donated by AES.
• Code Enforcement Officer Brian Quackenbush sent a report to the board, but was not present.  He said he completed four inspections last month, and renewed two permits. 
• Johns said she wanted to hold an informal meeting later this month, date to be determined. 
Appointments/resignations:  The board approved the fire department’s officers for the year; Warren Zimmerman as chief, Howard Leach as first assistant, John Stryker as second assistant, and David Parkhurst as third assistant.
Upcoming meetings:  The next regular board meeting is Wednesday, June 2 at 7:30 p.m.  A year end close out meeting will be held May 26.
