Decoding Village Agendas – May 22, 2017
Work Session of the Village Board
7: 30 p.m.
(Open to Public and Televised)
- Discussion about the Hunter Place sewer connections. Five homes on Hunter have three sewer line connections to the sewer line on another street – Michael’s Lane. They are in need of replacement. New sewer lines have been installed on Hunter. This would permit these five to connect to the new line on their street. It would require lateral lines to be installed from the new sewer line on Hunter to each of the five houses. The Village has received quotes for both the replacement of the old and the installation of new laterals. While the latter is not something that the Village would normally pay for, the homeowners have asked for some assistance with this cost. They would still be responsible for the individual connection and work in their homes to connect with the laterals.
- Discussion about the Community Choice Aggregation Program with Dan Welsh, Program Director for Westchester Power. The Board will discuss and consider the Community Choice Aggregation program that it declined to join in 2016. Approximately 100,000 county residents are currently part of this program which provides reduced rates for electric power.
- Discussion of the proposed Capital Budget for Fiscal Year 2017 -2018. The Board will discuss its Capital Budget for 2017-2018. The discussion will take into account its recently announced intent to acquire a building and property for the relocation of the DPW facility. For the General Fund the proposed capital expenditures would be $3,788,000. The proposal is for this to be funded as follow: Fund Balance – $1,900,000; Bonding – $1,685,000; BAN (Bond Anticipation Notes) – $203,000.
