Notice of said meeting and proposed agenda of then known subjects was given by posting in the three following places within the Village: Countryside Bank, Post Office, and Village Office window, and by publishing in the Syracuse Journal-Democrat on August 5, 2010; and by serving a copy of said notice to each member of the Board of Trustees more than 5 days prior to said meeting. Trustees present: Dan Crownover, Dale Stoner, Arliss Wassenberg, Janet Oelke, and Lynn Schomerus. Visitors: Barry Brandt and Mindi Clarke.

            The amount of the Keno check was $990.38

            Water consumed: 849,000; water paid for: 644,000; balance for month: -205,000; YTD: -99,000. Part of this overage was attributed to the water leak at  1028 “I” Street, owned by Tom Lewis.

            In regards to the street repair by Bruce Hassler, it was decided that the drainage would have to be corrected before any street repairs could be made.

            It was decided where to install the speed bumps and signs, but it will take a few extra helpers for the project.

            The question was asked if FDIC guarantees $250, 000 for each account or each account holder. In speaking to Bruce Hassler, he said the Bank has to pledge funds to cover all the Village’s accounts since we are a public entity.
