Dresden village board 9/1/10

Meeting:  The Dresden village board met Wednesday, Sept. 1, for two hours.
Attendance:  All board members were present.  There were six members of the public in the audience.
Action:  The village board approved the audit done on Dresden by Paul Wagner.  The auditor suggested a number of changes.  Wagner said the village board should review the insurance policy section that insures Dresden against fraud, create a written policy for use of the village credit card, review the procurement policy as the state has made changes, and that the mayor or deputy mayor needs to certify the payroll each week.  The auditor also suggested Clerk Terry Dilts keep a written record of the village’s indebtedness in one place.  A notebook has already been put together.
• A six person tree committee was established.  Trustee Tom McGuigan said this committee would be present to oversee problems and examine what could be done to protect trees instead of cutting them down.  Mayor Loujane Johns said she did not think the tree committee was a good idea because they cannot fill the board currently in place.  The tree ordinance was tabled until a committee is formed.
• The board approved giving the department of public works’ employees a yearly allowance for uniforms.  The first year each employee will get $350, and $325 per following year.  Dilts explained at the last meeting that this would save the village money on buying and cleaning uniforms.
• Superintendent of Public Works John Stryker was given permission to purchase eight new padlocks for the water tank and fuel pumps, costing $216.
• The board approved U.S. Gas and Electric and New York State Electric and Gas for gas and electric services, respectively, as the cheapest options.
Discussion without action:  Residents Suzamie Farnsworth and Eric Merkley asked the board what needed to be done about the fence on their property, which was cited with a violation for showing the wrong side out and for spacing between posts.  Previously, neighbors expressed concerns for parts of the fence being over six feet tall.  However, the village code no longer has a limit of six feet specified.  McGuigan called the height requirement omission an oversight.
• In a written report, Stryker said that the DPW poured concrete earlier in the week for sidewalks at two residences.  The department will do one more sidewalk at 80 Seneca Street, the last for the year.
Upcoming meetings:  The next board meeting is Wednesday, Oct. 6 at 7:30 p.m.
