Minutes Feb 5, 2018
OF SPECIAL MEETING FEBRUARY 5, 2018
Meeting opened at 6:02 P.M.
Present at the meeting:
Tina went through payroll and benefits and two bills that the Village paid and
taking into consideration the quarterly payment is if a 50/50 split then we are
in a position to make up some money. This does not count bonds and loans. Mayor
Peeler has agreed to work on the things that only Fultonville has paid. It
looks like the Village may owe something after reviewing what has been paid.
Fonda says it is paying their quarterly payment, however as of January there
was no bank account to pay it to. Linda has filled out the forms to get a Tax
ID number and it has gone to Mayor Peeler for his signature.
$450,000.00 Bond at NBT has to be renewed. John Mineaux contacted Linda because
his firm had worked on it in the past. Linda asked Brett to contact Mr. Mineaux.
payment: Laberge has suspended work at the due to lack of payment. WWTP has a
bill of over 150,000.00 with Laberge, it has been running since 2011. Each
Village is responsible for $75,000.00. The Village has paid our service
fees. We need to keep Laberge because if
there is a miss step the Village would become liable for the whole thing. Linda
will sign change orders once board members have a chance to look them over and
send them in. Linda request that the board authorize a partial payment to
Laberge in the amount of $20,000.00 to get them back on board and then workout
some sort of plan with them. All board members are in favor. The Village does
have the money to make payments and will have to look at other things we wanted
to do. Robyn would like an updated budget to see where we are and how much we
have. The Village cannot payout over the amount of the budget that was sent to
Rose asked how making these large payments would affect our budget. The Mayor
told her that it’s not good. In January 2017 the clerk transferred $100,00.00
form the reserve account to cover the Villages regular bills.
STATE OF THE VIILAGE FINANCES: We
have a little over $90,000.00 in NBT and have revenue coming in. We are now
collecting from revenue sources that have never been accessed before (i.e.
tipping fees, dump trailer usage etc.) Tina will have budget ready for February
TOWN OF GLEN: Th
water/Sewer agreement between Fultonville and Town of Glen expired in 2009.
This has been sent to Brett and Linda will send a letter to ask if they would
like to work with us get it to a point that would be agreeable to both. Mr.
Ossenfort believes the Village has to have an agreement with the County for the
industrial park. The Town hasn’t reached out in any capacity. The Village
cannot fulfill the amount of water per day Lysik is asking for, our pumps are
NICK SHEPERD: Nick
has been working alone for a while and has done a good job. Rob Allen put the
new part in the diesel truck and got Nick back on the road.
EMPLOYEE HANDBOOK: There
are some things that need attention. Linda has made some changes as well as
Robyn and need to sit down and review again.
