Dundee loses $400,000 grant

DUNDEE—A $400,000 grant that could have been used for infrastructure improvements in the village had to be declined because one of the requirements, job creation, could not be met.
Dundee Mayor Fred Cratsley Jr. made the announcement at the March 23 meeting of the village board. Work was recently completed at the wastewater treatment plant on a $400,000 Small Community Block Grant project, however the latest grant possibility couldn’t happen at this time.
Village representatives will meet at the United States Department of Agriculture in Canandaigua regarding eligibility for grants or loans that might be available for water projects. The water tank and areas with multiple water line breaks would be the target. Cratsley said, “This is just information to bring to the village board. Hopefully shortly after that we can meet about the sewers.”
In other business: Village Clerk Christine Sutherland said Health Improvement project coordinator Lauren Snyder has announced the foundation that funds the project will pay for a railing on Water Street, near the pharmacy. Snyder has spoken to New York State Department of Transportation about necessary permits.
• New rates for sidewalk replacement were approved. Streets Superintendent Andy Howell said the cost for homeowners in 2009 was $10.42 and this year will be $10.65.
• Dundee Central School contacted Cratsley regarding village purchase of a crossing sign for the corner of Water Street near Bairds. The portable sign would be in place from May to the end of October.
• The board voted to accept a $13,173 Federal Emergency Management Agency Grant for fire department equipment.
The next meeting of the Dundee village board will be April 13 at 7 p.m. in the village hall. The meeting will be preceded by a public hearing on next year’s village budget at 6:30 p.m.
