Residents object to street name change

    DRESDEN—Avenue A in the village of Dresden will remain Avenue A while the village looks into the proper process for changing a street name and if this change was ever approved.
    Several residents expressed concerns about the name change to Wadsworth Street at the Wednesday, July 6, monthly meeting.  Department of Public Works employee Brian Ellis said both street signs were currently on the posts.  The board agreed to take the “Wadsworth Street” sign down.
    Resident Darlene Conley said the board never voted on the change or held a public hearing about it.  She said read minutes from the Sept. 2, 2009, meeting where the board agreed to look into the change.  At the time, the village board wanted to honor past Mayor Roger Wadsworth and his recently departed wife.  Conley said at the Oct. 2, 2009, meeting, the board said a public hearing was needed to change the name of the street.
    Clerk Terry Dilts said she was still researching for when it was approved.  She explained former Mayor Loujane Johns had said it was approved and hadn’t needed a public hearing.  Trustee Dan Egburtson said he didn’t remember voting on the change.
    Current Mayor Joe Gibson said the board would look into the proper process.  He said if the board wants to change the name of the street now and needs a public hearing, it will hold one.  Gibson said the board would then make a decision based on the public’s opinions.  At the July 6 meeting no one spoke up in favor of the name change.
    In other business:
    • The board approved spending $3,600 plus 51 cents per mile for a Geneva company to do a financial review.  Gibson said the board would budget next year for a full audit of the village.
    • Richard Brown volunteered to be the village’s representative on the Yates County Planning Board.  Peg Brown agreed to fill the last open seat on the village zoning board.  Dresden now only has two open seats on the village planning board that need to be filled.
    • The village board approved giving the Dresden Day organizers $100 if needed to advertise the event.  Dresden Day will be Aug. 6, from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m.
    • Scott Sprague, representative from Sprague Insurance, presented to the board on the coverage his agency can provide the village.  He said they offer insurance through the New York Municipal Insurance Reciprocal, which is used by several municipalities in the county.  Sprague added the village’s insurance isn’t renewed until Jan. 1, 2012, so the board has time to consider switching insurance carriers.
