ROAD/CEMETERY SUPERINTENDENT: 

  1. Kevin has a request from Peggy Porter to remove a bush that is next to her stone at the cemetery. After some discussion, the Trustees asked Kevin to cut it off at the ground and kill the roots, rather than dig it out and possibly move or damage the stone. 
  2. Kevin needs to order more watering cans for the cemetery. We had 14 last year, but only six were remaining in the fall.  The Trustees approved this purchase.
  3. Mr. Clark asked Kevin to look at the water faucet at the cemetery. He has received complaints that some people are not able to open it to get water.

  1. The Chief reported that Medic 803 is just not reliable. He has no confidence in using it for transport because it continues to break down.  With our run totals, it is imperative that we have at least two medics at all times.  If 801 or 802 has a repair issue, we are down to one medic.  The run totals are higher than ever and the Chief believes we need to contract to purchase a new medic immediately.  It will take several months to build it and if ordered now it would not be ready until March or April 2017.

A RESOLUTION TO ORDER A NEW MEDIC FROM HORTON AMBULANCE FOR $199,402.00 TO BE DELIVERED IN 2017.  Mr. Welsh moved and Mr. DeFelice seconded and the Trustees voted.  Mr. Welsh, yes; Mr. DeFelice, yes; Mr. Clark, yes.  With three yes votes R16-44 was approved.
