Dresden village board 11/3/10

Meeting:  The Dresden village board met Wednesday, Nov. 3, for one hour and 45 minutes.
Attendance:  All board members were present.  There were four members of the public in the audience.
Action:  The board agreed to end all compensation time and just pay the time within the period it was earned.  Clerk Terry Dilts explained previously, if a village employee had time and a half it was paid at a later date or equal time was taken off from work.  She explained some employees waited until a lot of money was built up and then asked for it.
• The village will only be paying for part of a water sample bill.  Last month, the board agreed to switch labs doing the work.  In October, the village got a late bill from the original lab.  Dilts said one of the tests the old lab did was not scheduled and Dresden would not pay for it.
• The board approved the tree committee members.
• A Hold Harmless agreement was approved with Penn Yan.  Mayor Loujane Johns explained it is for the chlorine Dresden will purchase from the village.
Discussion without action:  Suzanne Valicenti, vice president of Sprague Insurance, spoke to the village board about insurance options through Blue Cross.  Dresden has three employees getting insurance.  Valicenti covered co-pay and deductibles that would be increasing in various plans.  She added the village should make a decision by the first week in December for the new insurance to start in January.
• The village will get $11,070.10 in back taxes and fees reimbursed by Yates County.
• Johns again said she and Trustee David Wernsing would not run for reelection.  Dilts said she had sent out two petitions to interested residents.  To be on the ballot, she explained the deadlines to turn in a petition are Dec. 31 (party candidates) and Jan. 31 (nonparty candidates).
• There is also one vacancy on the planning board and two on the zoning board.
• Code Enforcement Officer Brian Quackenbush provided a written report, but was not at the meeting.  In it he said he issued three new building permits for roof work.  He also looked into construction laws about time constraints, as requested.  Quackenbush said state law requires work to start within six months of a building permit being issued and expires after 12 months.
• In his written report, Department of Public Works Supervisor John Stryker, said brush pick-up is over until the spring.  He explained that the DPW is now doing leaf pick-up.  Stryker said the department is  doing pick-up every day, and it takes five days to cover all of the village.   
Upcoming meetings:  The next regular board meeting is Wednesday, Dec. 1, at 7:30 p.m.
