Dundee village board 2/14/12

    Meeting: The Dundee village board met for approximately an hour on Tuesday, Feb. 14.  
    Attendance: All board members were present.  Five members of the public were in the audience.  
    Action: The board approved to allow a family in the area to haul out the leaf compost pile currently belonging to the village.  Mayor Fred Cratsley Jr. said he has no problem with the family taking the leaves as long as the village is not held responsible for what the family does with them.  
    Discussion without action: Cratsley announced the village would be holding meetings on Tuesday, Feb. 21 and Thursday, Feb. 23 to discuss the budget for 2012-13.  The meeting on Feb. 21 will only be for the town board.  The one on Feb. 23 will also include department heads.  Both meetings will start at 4 p.m. and are open to the public.  Cratsley also noted that instead of running in accordance with the calendar year, the fiscal year for Dundee begins on June 1.
    • Fire Chief Ray Miller reported 14 fire department members spent a combined 200 hours making sure all lights in the department’s facilities were installed.  Miller said the process turned out to be more work than expected.  Cratsley added he feels it is great to see firefighters volunteering so much time to the community.  “It’s an honor to know there are members who have such dedication,” he said.     
    Bids/purchases over $1,000:  Three amendments to the 2011-12 budget were approved.  One amendment was to add $46,693 for the grant the fire department received last month from the Federal Emergency Management Agency to improve radio communications.  Another added $1,200 for a different grant the fire department recently applied for.  An extra $2,442 was also added for a records management grant which the village got from the state.  Cratsley mentioned since these finances were added to make room for grants that were received, the amendments would have no impact on village taxpayer dollars.  
    • The board approved the purchase of a new cemetery software called CIMS Light for $1,295.  Village Clerk Christine Sutherland explained the new software will categorize cemeteries in the area to determine things such as vacant spots, names of buried people, and when people passed away.  Sutherland said that the village had been losing data with the current software they use.
    Upcoming meetings: The next regular village board meeting will be held on Tuesday, Feb. 28 at 5 p.m. in the village hall.
