Superintendent had lunch with Senator Seward regarding the money the DOT wants back for their portion of the Visitor Center which comes to about $41,000. Senator Seward is able to push this repayment off to May 2017. Supervisor Garretson stated we could work this into the budget without bonding the repayment. Councilperson Barown asked if the Town could make payments and the DOT wants a lump sum and will expect it in May of 2017.

The National Grid invoice was looked at because we get 5 invoices from them and Supervisor Garretson was able to combine the 4 of the 5 into a cheaper supplier which is a good savings. The supplier is North American Power and Gas LLC

William T. Ryan Associates balance on the expense account is larger than the payments being made because Supervisor Garretson is paying on the total invoice monthly while waiting on the bond.

Resolution 2013-5 Amendment to Contract #D01680 of the Municipal Snow and Ice Contract Agreement

Proposed Action: Amendment to Contract #D01680 of the Municipal Snow and Ice Contract Agreement

Whereas, due to the severity of the winter and the high cost of fuel during the 2012/2013 season, the municipality requests that the Municipal Snow and Ice Agreement estimated expenditure be revised to reflect the additional lane miles of state roads that were plowed and or treated during the afore mentioned season, and the additional costs associated with the higher fuel prices, and

Whereas, all terms and conditions of the original contract extension remain in effect except the original estimated expenditure of $58,834.47 will have an additional adjustment of $6,236.45 for a revised estimated expenditure of $65,070.92, and

Now, therefore be it resolved, this board authorizes Thomas Garretson-Supervisor to enter into amendment B which will adjust the 2012-2013 snow and ice contract for a revised payment factor with the New York State Department of Transportation.

Motion by Councilperson Cornwell to accept Resolution 2013-5 Seconded by Councilperson Johnson. Roll Call vote is taken: Supervisor Garretson-Excused Deputy Supervisor Barown-yes, Councilperson Johnson-yes, Councilperson Cornwell-yes and Councilperson Laughlin-yes 4yes 0no. Duly carried.

Question and comments by the public present:
Dennis Laughlin is concerned there is a problem with the Town Planning Board as he had brought business for the Town Planning Board in August and September and there were only two members in attendance and no quorum. It is concerning to Mr. Laughlin as an attorney representing clients that it is important to be able to have business acted on in a timely fashion. Two consecutive meetings in a row there was no quorum to conduct business even after discussing with the chairman in August Mr. Laughlin needed to have this action taken care of. Mr. Laughlin was assured by the chairman there would be a quorum at the September meeting and there wasn’t.

Motion to adjourn-Councilperson Cornwell Seconded by Councilperson Laughlin

There being no further business meeting adjourned at 7:40pm.

Respectfully submitted,
Mary Beth Flint, Town Clerk

DRAFT TB meeting September 12, 2013

Public Hearing for Town Budget Tax Levy Limit Override-Local Law 2013-4 is opened at 7:00Pm.

Councilperson Barown posed the question do they, the State, actually do the calculation for us? At some point to tell us what the increase was? Supervisor Garretson stated we were under the 2%, however other things are exempt from the 2% such as State retirement etc. Councilperson Barown asked the County Treasurer Dan Crowell if the Town should always pass the law from year to year and his advice was always pass the Law.

Councilperson Cornwell asked is there a penalty if the Town went over the 2% levy limit? Supervisor Garretson stated there isn’t one. If the Law was not passed 3-5 Board Members could adopt the Budget as is. What would happen if the Town did not pass the Local Law every year for the override? Supervisor Garretson stated he didn’t know and is guessing the tax levy would be in jeopardy. Councilperson Barown stated the Town may only be able to collect 2% even though the Town would need 2 ¼ to make budget, hypothetically speaking. Then there is a Budget that exceeds revenue.

Question and comments by the public present:

Robert Spencer spoke to the Board regarding land he owns in Cherry Valley at the end of Morton Road. His question to the board is what does it take to change a seasonal road to an open road? Superintendent of Highways Ed VanDerWerker answered; a year round residence. When does Farm the Market apply? He has hay barns on the property, which he stores hay in that he sells throughout the year, however when the snow gets to deep they stop selling hay. He is looking to have the road plowed to accommodate the tractor trailers. Supervisor Garretson stated we have to be careful when touching a seasonal road, then we open ourselves up to all the seasonal roads. Supervisor Garretson will have to get in touch with the Town attorney for guidance on this issue. Mr. Spenser disagrees with that as all the roads that are seasonal in the Town were not deemed seasonal all at once. Highway Superintendent stated if the Town plowed the road and maintained the road to the driveway so people can get in to the barns to get the hay they purchased and then you stopped selling hay and the road was no longer plowed the Town would be liable if someone were to drive down the road and get stranded.
