Wayne town board 3/8/11

Meeting:  The Wayne town board met Tuesday, March 8, for one hour and 20 minutes.
Attendance:  Supervisor Steve Butchko was the only board member absent.  There were six members of the public in the audience.
Action:  The board voted for Butchko to create a five to 10 year plan regarding improvements needed to the town hall.  Board member Barney Hubbs said he did not want to approve work unless it was planned for or it was an emergency.  The board discussed improvements that were needed, including the front door.  Hubbs said he would approve spending money on new locks because it was previously discussed, but not outright replacing the door.  He cited his concerns about the current economy and budget funds.
• The board paid $171,711 to the fire department for the annual contract.
Discussion without action:  Dog Control Officer Bob Perry spoke to the board about doing a dog enumeration; he and his wife Star Perry would go to every residence in Wayne and find any unlicensed and unvaccinated dogs.  She explained they have done it twice in Urbana resulting in fewer unlicensed dogs.  Perry added the state allows them to charge an extra $5 for licensing if they find any such dogs.  She said if residents did not license or vaccinate their dogs, they would be brought to court because it is a violation.  Hubbs said it was a good idea, but they should look at the cost.
• Historian Bob Canfield said the history group is planning to document all papers and artifacts for insurance purposes.
• Carlson said the town’s 2010 annual financial report was filed with the Comptroller’s Office Feb. 24.  The board then also received the monthly reports for January and February once the previous year was closed.
• Steuben County Legislator Joe Hauryski spoke to the board about the county budget and the subcommittees looking into natural gas drilling.  Concerning the budget, Hauryski said the 2012 budget will be difficult; he explained the county is already short $3.4 million due to Medicaid and pension costs.  Hauryski said the natural gas drilling subcommittees would present their findings to the town board members at a meeting tentatively set in May.
• Wayne will hold a Town Clean-up Day May 28.
Upcoming meetings:  The next regular town board meeting will be Tuesday, April 12, at 7 p.m.
