Village studies plan for website with SUNY

The Silver Creek Village Board is considering setting up a new website that will be maintained by the State University of New York system.

It would cost the village $600 for licensing and maintenance fees for the program, which would be managed by the SUNY Institute of Technology in Barneveld.

The templates on the site allow for posting of local codes, laws, resolutions, budgets and meeting notes. Also included are templates for local tourism, points of interest, historical photos and data and links to other communities.

At last week's board meeting, Mayor Kurt Lindstrom suggested all board members log on and review program for discussion at the March 5 meeting.

The board addressed an issue left unresolved from its Feb. 10 meeting, agreeing to seek bids for a 2012 Dodge Charger V6 with new light bars installed for the police department. The measure passed 3-0 with Amy Romanik abstaining since her husband is a member of the department.

David Rowlinson, project engineer for GHD Engineering, presented an award from American Water Works Association to Herm Griewisch, chief operator of the village system, for his leadership in overseeing implementation of the village water line replacement project.

The trustees approved two motions to allow the mayor to sign letters of tax exempt certification with the Silver Creek Board of Education, Hanover Town Board and Town of Hanover assessor for the former George Bengtes property, now owned by the Silver Creek Department of Public Works. Tax exemptions were approved by the School Board and Town Board at their recent meetings.

Motions were approved to declare the wastewater department's 1995 Chevy P30 Step Van as excess equipment and to accept bids for a replacement to be opened at the March 5 meeting.

Board members unanimously voted to approve a health savings account for the CSEA with a contribution limit of $3,050 for single coverage and $6,100 for family coverage.
