BE IT RESOLVED by the Governing Body of Lessee as follows:

 1. Determination of Need.

3. Adoption of Resolution. The signatures below from the designated individuals from the Governing Body of the Lessee evidence the adoption by the Governing Body of this Resolution.

On motion of Trustee Hotchkiss and seconded by Trustee Linerode, all aye, the board has agreed to C&S Company providing engineering services for the Little Salmon River Water Line Replacement Project for the amount of $10,400.

In regards to the Village Dam – Village resident Julie Poissant questioned whether State funded grants would be available to help in rebuilding the dam.  John Power response to this was that the State is already cutting funding to all municipalities during this economic/pandemic crisis and grants would be difficult to achieve in a timely fashion.

Village resident Mary Mowry would like the Village to investigate a little further into building a dam that would not cost as much as DEC has quoted. John Power response to this was that the DEC only accepts and reviews engineer designed dams.

The meeting adjourned at 7:30 pm on motion of Trustee Linerode, seconded Trustee Hotchkiss, all aye.

Respectfully submitted,

Laureen Teifke
Deputy Clerk
