DEFERIET The village Board of Trustees on Monday determined who could purchase unused village property, as the submitted bids were opened.
In June the board, at the suggestion of Trustee William S. Littlefield, decided to declare numerous village-owned items surplus and sell them through sealed bids. A viewing was held earlier this month.
A 26-inch analog television went to Sara Titus for $57. She also will be allowed to purchase an iPad for $322. Another iPad was awarded to Danny Powell for $350, and four more will go to Johnson Newspaper Corp. at a cost of $321 each. Income from the sale totaled $2,013.
Other items, including two upholstered rocking chairs, a utility trailer, carpeting, paving stones and a non-working zero turn mower, received no bids.
According to Mayor Janet M. Zando, no decision has been made as to how to dispose of the leftover items, but an auction was suggested.
In other village news, a pig roast fundraiser to aid in purchasing playground equipment has been scheduled for Oct. 12. Doug Babcock will be the chairman, working in conjunction with the Deferiet Fire Department.
Mickey Lehman of Bernier, Carr and Associates, Watertown, gave an update on the water project that is being undertaken with the village of Herrings.
Deferiet passed a resolution to install laterals for the Fred Cook, Steve Martin and Donald Howard residences on Route 3.
Mayor Zando said the residents are not on the village water system but have paid taxes for the service and it will be a debt load incurred by Deferiet and not the village of Herrings.
The village has set a bulk cleanup day for Oct. 9.
