Montour Falls village board 11/3/11

    Meeting:  The Montour Falls village board met on Monday, Oct. 3, for one hour and 40 minutes.
    Attendance:  Phil Smith was the only board member absent.  There were two members of the public in the audience.
    Action:  The board approved threshold changes to the procurement policy; depending on the price, the village has to get a certain number of bids, either verbal or in writing.  Clerk Suzanne Casselberry explained increasing the money amount thresholds will mean less paperwork and save the village some money.
    • The board gave Rocky Kambo, Schuyler County Cornell Cooperative Extension community planner, the go ahead to have a one-mile walking trail marked within the village.  Kambo said he picked a path down village roads that have sidewalks.  The one mile trail will be marked with a footprint stamp.
    Discussion without action:  Jim McDuffee, representing Delta Engineering, presented to the board on possible Gateway Project details.  He explained the work is covered by a $400,000 grant and will focus on West Main Street and the intersection at Route 14.  He presented possible looks for benches, trash cans, kiosks, and entrance sign detailing.  McDuffee explained the specifics will be narrowed down at the first public meeting, which will be sometime in October.  He added the Catharine Valley Trail has provided about $5,000 for signage and will have to be included.
    • King suggested the board review what their ads look like in the Finger Lakes Tourism Alliance’s publications before renewing them for 2012.  He said they have previously approved spending $325 each on ads for the marina/campground and the village.  He explained the alliance publishes magazines throughout the year.
    • The board looked over the budget.  King said one big change was the landfill fee going up $10,000 more than expected.  He added that the insurance cost was down in contrast.
    • Board member Ellen Mathers reported the Montour Falls library should be getting new computers within the next few weeks.
    Bids/purchases over $1,000:  The board approved spending no more than $45,370.50 from the capital reserve fund on the fire rescue truck.  King explained this was never actually voted on and the auditor wanted it done officially.
    Upcoming meetings:  The next village board meeting is Monday, Oct. 17, at 7 p.m.
