Montour Falls village board 1/18/11

Meeting:  The Montour Falls village board met Tuesday, Jan. 18, for one hour and 30 minutes.
Attendance:  All board members were present.  There were seven members of the public in the audience.
Action: The board approved Jean Parker, Shirley Callahan, Sally Michel, and Joyce Van Vleet as election inspectors.  Nancy Couch will be an alternate.  The board also designated the village hall as the polling location for March 15, 2011, from noon to 9 p.m.
• The village will try to sell a surplus electric lift currently stored at the wastewater treatment plant.  Clerk Suzanne Casselberry said the piece of equipment was declared surplus three years ago, but the village was never able to sell it.  Montour Falls will try again using an online auction service.
Discussion without action:  Humane Society of Schuyler County representatives Mark and Georgie Taylor presented a plan to turn the former Kurtz Enterprise building in the village into an animal shelter.  Mark Taylor explained the humane society is looking at this as an alternative option to the Alpine location.  He explained that site may be less suitable than previously thought.
Taylor added this location would be better for the humane society because it is more centrally located in the county, making it easier for volunteers and people looking to adopt.  He said the society could encourage visitors to check out local services in the village.  The board expressed some concerns about possible barking and if it would affect the village marina just to the north of the location.
• Gary Herzig presented undated plans for a Montour Pharmacy drive through.  Mayor Donna Kelley said the village would get input from Delta Engineers.
• Fire Chief Tom Carson reported on the ladder truck repairs.  He said it will be finished this week and then tested.  After the ladder is repaired the board needs to decide on a broken axel as well.
• Kelley suggested the board consider updating and approving marina rates, leases, and rules for the 2011 season.
Appointments/resignations:  The board approved Carson to hire Danielle Burns as secretary to the fire chief, no change in pay.  He said she has more time to fill out the forms and submit them quickly.
Upcoming meetings:  The next regular village board meeting is Monday, Feb. 7, at 7 p.m.
