Fire chief proposes buying used gear

    DUNDEE—Trustees heard a thrifty proposal for purchasing fire department turnout gear on Tuesday, May 24.

    Fire chief Ray Miller spoke to the board about the need for new turnout gear for interior firefighters. One set brand new costs approximately $3,000. Miller said he can buy used sets in fine condition for a total of $3,150 for nine sets. Miller said there is a need for more turnout gear because the department has 10 new members. Miller said, “We’re running out of gear.” Mayor Fred Cratsley said the sample Miller brought to the meeting looked good.
    In other business: Lights, bleachers and backstops are next in line for the Spring Street Park. Only one bid was received for lights for the sports field. The bid came in under the $60,000 budgeted for lights. The cost of materials is $56,570. The estimated cost to operate the lights for 25 years is $57,008. The bid for bleachers and backstops is $14,825 for five bleachers and $3,330 for backstops for a total of $15,116. Trustees approved both bids. Cratsley said acceptance of the bids must be based on approval of New York State Office of Parks, Recreation and Historic Preservation. Funds for the park project were received through a grant from the state office.
    • Trustees discussed details of cleaning for one of the village’s water wells. Decision on acceptance of one of the two bids received was tabled. The main issue is connected to testing of the water.
    • Streets Superintendent Andy Howell has learned costs for curbing. Granite curbing ranges from $16 to $20 per foot and concrete, $9 to $10 per foot. Howell said granite resists snowplow and salt damage.
    • Health Improvement Project Coordinator Lauren Snyder spoke to the board. Members of the Beautification Committee plan to plant flowers in containers in the business district. Snyder said applications for the Community Development Block Grant will be submitted this week. She said the grants are very competitive. Results will be known in October. If the application is successful, grants will be open to homeowners of low and medium incomes.
Snyder spoke to the trustees about a new project: the First Annual Dundee/Penn Yan Walk Off. The project will run from June 7 to Aug 7.
    Snyder asked for more information about the walking trail planned for Spring Street Park. She asked how Our Town Rocks can help. Cratsley said a design is needed. He said the village is trying to form a committee to see what the community is looking for in a walking trail. Snyder announced Dundee Farmer’s Market will open on the second Wednesday in June. Hours will be from 3 until 6:30 p.m. She said some new vendors have joined.
    • Carol Sutterby was recommended to represent Dundee on Yates County Planning Board. The recommendation must be approved by Yates County Legislature.
    • Michah Smith was approved to join the Dundee Fire Department.
    The next meeting of the Dundee village board will be at 7 p.m. on Tuesday, June 14. The meeting will be in the village hall on Union Street.
