Dresden village board 6/2/10

Meeting:  The Dresden village board met Wednesday, June 2, for one hour.
Attendance:  All board members were present.  There were 10 members of the public in the audience.
Action:  The board decided to table decision on accepting a bid for the fire department vehicle exhaust system.  The village received three bids that were opened.  Two of the bids were Smoke Blotter for $24,700 and Clean Air Concepts for $29,601.  During the opening of the bids, the third price was not readily available, and the board decided to get input from the fire department.
• The board decided to enter in a third party custodian agreement with Lyons National Bank.  Mayor Loujane Johns explained it is a non-binding agreement where the village will also consider Lyons National Bank when looking into checking accounts.  Clerk Terry Dilts added the village has already used Lyons before, and gotten the lowest interest rates from them.
• The board accepted the monthly bills.  The general bill was $41,352.20 and the water bill was $14,474.02.
Discussion without action: Code enforcement officer Brian Quackenbush said New York State Energy Development Agency (NYSERDA) will fund the approximately $400 for each municipality to have a new copy of the code books.  He said the state usually pays for this, doing so in 2003 and 2007 when new books came out, but will not this time.
• Quackenbush also reported he handled two building permits, one certificate of occupancy, one certificate of compliance, and did six inspections last month.  He added he responded to garbage complaints, and the trash was removed.
• Assistant Fire Chief Warren Zimmerman gave the fire department report.  He said Yates County is looking to use the ultra high frequency (UHF) band for communication by 2013.  He said this would make the eight radios the village owns obsolete by then.  Zimmerman explained it would probably mean having to buy new radios all at once.  He also said the department is interested in doing physicals/fit testing, as well as a study done comparing costs to other departments and giving recommendations.  Zimmerman said this study would cost $6,500 over two years.
• The board reviewed a written report by Highway Superintendent John Stryker.  It said the department of public works did hydrant flushing May 7 to 10, because Penn Yan scheduled it then.
• Stryker also reported spring pick-up is over.  He wrote that some residents waited until the last minute to put leaves and brush out by the street, so the DPW spent two to three days a week doing pick-up at the end.  Stryker also added that the DPW is having some problems with mowers and trimmers.  However, the DPW was busy mowing the cemetery for Memorial Day and is trying to keep up with regular mowing.
• Dresden Day will be Saturday, July 10.  Johns said she hopes there will be a lot of people out in the village.
• Johns said there are still two opens seats on both the zoning board and the county planning board.
• The village received no bids for removal of the trailer on the property across the street from the village hall.
Upcoming meetings:  The next regular board meeting will by Wednesday, July 7, at 7:30 p.m.
