Trustee Helmin: Submitted
a proposed agenda for next JWWTP meeting, want to keep it very limited to the
WWTP issues only. Tentative meeting date of Tuesday 2/26/19 here. Tina unable
to make it. Please send to Steve any issues you may have. The Mayor stated she
has an issue with the figures printed in the Recorder. It is a joint meeting no
one is in charge. The two Village treasurers should not be working on this, it
should be a separate entity. There is no accounting or payroll software in
place for the WWTP. Steve suggested a quickie spreadsheet for the 8 quarters
from 2017-2018 and 2018-2019 showing who paid what.
walk clearing- would like a public hearing designating Riverside Dr and Main St
aa priority sidewalks If sidewalks are not cleared in 48 hours the Village DPW
will clear them and the property owner would be charged. Trustee Morford
doesn’t think you can differentiate streets. The Mayor suggests sending a
letter with the water bills stating this is our code and we would like it
followed. Get the facts together and then a public hearing can be scheduled.
Potential grant through Preserve New York State for the Reformed Church, they
need to be in a historic district w, which we do not have yet. Streetlights at Truckstop’s
of America- per National Grid the Village doesn’t pay for any streetlights on
Riverside Dr. We can add lights if needed.
All what Steve said. She spoke about her past-experience on the JWWTP Board
Green burial pricing, do we want to increase it? Tim has received 3 calls.
There was a meeting between Grant and the Methodist Church, Grant did not
