Village board sets budget sessionInvalid word space value

The Village Board on Monday agreed to gather one last time -- either tonight or Wednesday night -- to discuss the 2011-12 village operating budget.

The board plans to adopt the budget in a special meeting at 12:30 p.m. Friday in Village Hall.

Former Mayor Michael Sullivan, at the end of his term in March, proposed a $5.5 million general fund budget, a decrease in spending of 1.3 percent from the current fiscal year.

The board has until Sunday to finalize the budget and has yet to make known if it will include additional cuts.

Also Monday night, the board:

* Authorized the sale of village-owned vehicles no longer needed through a sealed bid process.

Bids will be received until 10 a.m. May 9 in the village clerk's office. The vehicle list includes 1990 and 1991 dump trucks (one each); a 1996 pickup truck; 2001, 2004 and 2006 cars (one each); and two 2003 cars.

* Voted to allow future sanitary sewer service to eight proposed single-family homes on West Lake Road within the Portland-Pomfret-Dunkirk Sewer District. Wastewater Treatment Plant Chief Operator Betsy Sly said she does not believe the addition of the homes OVER 14 LNswould have any negative impact on the village wastewater treatment plant.

The new subdivision is owned by Rotunda Properties LLC.

* Learned that bids for several water and wastewater treatment chemicals, water meters and bituminous concrete will be advertised. Details of the bidding may be found in the village clerk's office.
