The Eden police officers’ proposed contract will wait until mid-January to be approved.
Town Board members tabled the proposed contract with the Eden Police Club on Tuesday night to clarify wording.
Supervisor Glenn Nellis received a telephone call Tuesday afternoon informing him the matter could not be resolved before the meeting.
“We had some disagreement having to do with the verbiage,” he said. “The negotiating team was off and out of town.”
Board members plan to vote on the three-year contract for all the department’s full-time officers during their next meeting at 7:30 p.m. Jan. 14.
In another matter, the board voted 3-1 with one absent member to authorize the town justices and court clerk to attend a conference in Manhattan during the third week of February.
Councilman Richard Ventry opposed the trip. He objected to paying for the three-night hotel stay and voiced a preference for officials to attend a local conference.
Councilwoman Mary Lou Pew was absent.
The board also:
• Renewed its agreement with Conestoga-Rovers & Associates for engineering. The firm, based on Delaware Avenue, will work on the town’s water projects for another year and will be paid $4,500 for retainer services, $3,000 for general municipal engineering support services and an undetermined amount for project services.
• Approved Steven Lomison of West Seneca as the electrical inspector. He works for Commonwealth Electrical Inspection Service in Mendon, a Rochester suburb.
• Accepted Anna Mae Knack’s resignation as the supervisor’s part-time administrative assistant effective Dec. 4. She previously worked as the full-time administrative assistant for six town supervisors.
• Reappointed employees in the annual reorganization meeting.
