Body:
A special meeting of the Board of Trustees was held on Saturday, March 3, 2007, at the Village Hall. Mayor Maedl opened the meeting at 8:30 a.m. Also present were Deputy Mayor Conley, Trustee Bateman, Trustee Herriven, Trustee Kirkpatrick, Village Coordinator Dodge, Police Chief Swick, and Clerk-Treasurer Schweigert. The 2007-2008 budget was the topic of discussion. The Board went through each line item and made adjustments as necessary. During this discussion, Village Coordinator Dodge advised the Board that there is an issue with the bucket truck that needs attention. Based on his research, regulations are now in place so that we may need to replace the truck in the very near future due to its age. Village Coordinator and Clerk-Treasurer Schweigert will discuss the issue with Attorney Seaman regarding the need to place this out to bid and financing. Due to the storm in October 2006, it is apparent that a tree survey should be done again this year. Village Coordinator Dodge will contact Cutting Edge in Gasport about having one done in the current budget year as there is enough left to cover it. Deputy Mayor Conley was called out of the meeting at 9:30 a.m. and left. Budget discussions continued without Deputy Mayor Conley. A motion was made by Trustee Herriven, and seconded by Trustee Kirkpatrick, to adjourn. Carried.
