Town meeting notes from Dec. 2

Bruce Famoly reported that there were two water leaks during the Nov. 18 meeting, "Last meeting we had two water leaks so I wasn't here," he said.

The town's water department employees have been working with the village installing water meters with a total of 57 as of Dec. 2.

"Shows that consolidation works and will work," Famoly said of the collaboration.

Town Councilor Nancy Murray noted for the record that she had her meter replaced and that the town workers were very nice, helpful and courteous.

Rec report

Sue Murphy reported that they were in the process of re-doing the farmer's market application that will be submitted for the town board and attorney's review.

The rec department is buttoning up for the winter and still involved finishing up maintenance work at the Austin Park Pavilion.

Town clerk

Town clerk Janet Aaron reported on the progress of the town hall renovations noting that they were in the midst of clearing out former Town Supervisor files. She noted that former Supervisor Bill Pavlus operated much as a historian in his record keeping.

She also noted that people were starting to come in to get their dog's licensed over the past couple of weeks. Note, dog licenses runs for one year from the date the license is issued.

Codes enforcement

Debbie Williams reported that her job had slowed down with the onslaught of the wintery weather.

Budget report

Bridgett Winkelman said she came back from vacation to a payroll compliance review with the IRS.

"We reviewed reporting employee benefits for W2 purposes," she said. "He was helpful on providing information."

Winkelman also reminded department head to review their expenses to make sure they were on budget, and to hold off on 2011 expenses until the new year.

Main agenda items

Town Board all voted yes, except Councilor Rick Keyes to abolish a town clerk assistant position and replace it with a data collector position in the town assessor's department effective Jan. 1, 2011.
