• Richard B announced that Dean Hillyard said he would be unable to consider the CEO position for the salary stated.

Emergency Business:

Richard read Jason Ballard’s second resignation letter indicating he was resigning effective June 16th 2010. Discussion about how long the Town could legally go without a CEO, the several large issues coming along, and the issues of possible misuse of previously issued permits.

Paul M. indicated an interest in doing the CEO job after the close of union negotiations and then do only the CEO job starting January 2011. Discussion about whether he could do this and the Councilman position concurrently, salary, and training. Discussion of what to do for the next 6 months in the meantime. Richard B will contact Association of Towns to see if Paul M can legally hold both positions.

Old Business

Richard indicated that the Steuben County Worker’s Comp share for Lindley would now be $12,900 for 2011, worse case. If Lindley went with a private insurer, the cost would be $30,000. He recommended the Board reconsider their plan to remove themselves from the County plan. Lloyd D. made the motion to send a letter reversing the Board’s decision to leave the County plan and instead indicate the intent to remain with the Steuben County Worker’s Comp plan. Gerry S. seconded. Roll – all in favor.
Motion Carried

Lloyd D. indicated that Rudy’s Mowing would mow Lindsley and Fairview cemeteries this year and next. The rate would be $150 for Lindsley each time, and $250 for Fairview each time. Rudy would mow 6 more times each this year, and then 10 times each next year, approximately 2 times per month each. His rates would remain the same next year and he has agreed to mow just before Memorial Day, the Fourth of July, and Labor Day. Lloyd D. will call and make sure the Town gets Rudy’s insurance certificate and Federal ID information. He will also make sure Rudy understands that he will get paid the month following receipt of his bill. Paul S. made the motion to accept Rudy’s Mowing for Lindsley and Fairview. Paul M. seconded. Roll – All in favor.
