Dresden village board 07/01/09

Meeting:  The Dresden village board met Wednesday, July 1 for one hour and 20 minutes.
Attendance:  Trustee Daniel Egburtson was the only board member absent.  There was one member of the public in the audience.
Action:  The board approved an inter-municipal agreement with the town of Torrey that would allow the village to put past due water bills onto that person’s taxes.  Clerk Terry Dilts said this is for Torrey residents connected to the village’s water system.  The town of Torrey agrees with it.  She added Dresden is trying to do the same with Milo and Benton.  Terry explained this would not cover any new extensions of the water system.
• The board also agreed to pay a teenager who mowed property at 1,000 Firehouse Ave. $144 ($12 an hour).  The owner will be billed for the work, plus a $100 charge from the village.
• Dilts will apply for two grants, $10,000 each, for sidewalk/bike paths near the village entrance.  If the town gets the money there will be one bike path along Main Street and another on Seneca Street.
• The board agreed to require payment from a property owner on Bell Bentley Road for the village’s minimum charge just to be hooked up to the water system.  Mayor Loujane Johns said the New York Conference of Mayors’ lawyer said the village could charge the property owner.  She added the other person on the line pays the fee just to be connected, despite no water usage.
Discussion without action:  Dilts said John Stryker, department of public works superintendent, is looking into getting a used tractor.  She explained he is looking for one that is heavy duty enough and has the capacity for needed attachments.  Trustee David Wernsing said it would be better to buy local in case there are any problems with the tractor.
• The town of Starkey is interested in Dresden paying half of the training costs to keep Brian Quackenbush, code enforcement officer, certified.  Quackenbush serves as the code enforcement/zoning officer for both Dresden and Starkey.
• Dilts said she will look into if the village can combine the planning and zoning boards.  Both boards are still two people short each to meet the five member requirement.  Dilts said she thought she read somewhere it can be done.
Bids/purchases over $1,000:  None.
Appointments/resignations:  None.
Upcoming meetings:  The next regular board meeting will be Wednesday, Aug. 5 at 7:30 p.m.
