DEFERIET — The main topics at the August Board of Trustees meeting concerned the village’s Department of Public Works.
The board agreed to send its DPW worker Travis Intorica to a training session to learn more about Discharge Monitoring Report (DMR). The regulatory report for waste water treatment is mandated by the federal government.
The board approved a added day of work for summer DPW worker Andrew Smith in order for the department to complete a work project.
Keith Heames has been hired as a labor for the department at a rate of $13 per hour for a 29 hour week.
The village officials discussed the purchase of a generator for the waste water treatment plant since the current one has been in use since the plant was built in 1982.
Mayor Janet M. Zando reported the joint water project with the village of Herrings is moving forward. The water tower has been erected on Route 3A and only some landscaping needs to be completed at the site. The project is awaiting legal action to evoke eminent domain to allow pipes to be installed between the villages.
There are 12 property owners along the route which have refused to sign easements.
