DRAINAGE ISSUE: Supervisor Gallahan asked Alma O'Connor to address the Board at this time.
Mrs. O'Connor came to the Board again re: the drainage issue at her property in Port Gibson. She said she was told it would be done in August, then in September, and it is still not done. Mrs. O'Connor: Why not be honest about whether or not this will be taken care of. This has been a very rainy season this summer and she has been understanding, but there were also several years prior that were not this bad.
Superintendent Holtz informed the Board and Mrs. O'Connor that the CHIPS funding should be coming in very soon, and the date for getting the company to deliver concrete is set for week of October 23rd. We have no control over when they can make deliveries, and due to the weather, they are also running behind with schedules.
Supervisor Gallahan explained what CHIPS funding was and how this funding works. Now the work has to be done first, paid for, and then receipts are sent in to the State for reimbursement.
Mrs. O'Connor has requested to have this issue resolved for several years and is doubtful if it will ever get taken care of.
Supervisor Gallahan: It will get done before the snow flies.
Mrs. O'Connor also asked why the signs for Atwater Street have been taken down and replaced with Co. Rd. 7 signs. This issue will be looked into. This may have been done by the County DOT.

HIGHWAY/WATER SUPERINTENDENT WAYNE HOLTZ, REPORTED THE FOLLOWING:
--The crew has been working on wedging.
--Some trees fell during the recent wind storm. Worked on getting those removed.
--One of the mowing tractors has been repaired, the other is still not fixed. We have been mowing the roadsides with one, trying to keep up.

--The resignation has been submitted and received from Highway Employee Richard Vienna. Rich has asked Superintendent Holtz if the Board would allow him to take a leave of absence. Supervisor Gallahan checked with Ontario County Human Resources regarding this request. It could be for up to 1 year, if the Board wished to do so. Following a brief discussion, the Board was in agreement that this option would not be available to Employees.

--Superintendent Holtz also informed the Board that the "Employee Handbook" needed to get done. When things are in writing it is more likely to be comprehended and not questioned/challenged. This issue has been talked about several times, but it does not get done.

--The Board members asked if a new employee would be hired for the highway department.
Superintendent Holtz: Not at this time.

--There were a few water service repairs to do, which were noticed during the shut-off procedure.
--In regard to the notice from NYSDOH, the numbers were very close to the requirement. There has been a lot of savings since the new addition (cleatris) has been completed at the pump station. We do not have to flush the waterlines as often, and that was very costly to the Town.

--As previously mentioned, the crew will be going out to work on the drainage issues at Mrs. O'Connor's in Port Gibson, and replacing a driveway pipe & culvert on Bedette Road when the concrete plant can deliver the product to us. This is set up for the week of 10/23/2017.

--Steve and Marty performed 12 fire inspections in the Town and the 3 Villages in August.
--Steve has been working on getting the fee schedule updated. The recommendations will be given at the next meeting.

?? -- Councilman Miller asked who the solar farm panels on St. Rt. 21 in Shortsville were going to service.
Steve DeHond: The power will be going to 1st National Bank, they are not obligated to give us any other information.

?? -- Supervisor Gallahan was asked by a resident if lawn service businesses required a permit for who they service.
Steve DeHond: No.

?? -- Councilman Davis asked if Food truck vendors need a license / permit to operate.
Steve DeHond: A vendors permit would be required, and with food sales a license to operate would be issued by the NYSDOH and would need to be provided to the municipality that is issuing the vendors permit. (This would be done through the Village &/or Town Clerk.)

TOWN JUSTICE DENOSKY: Addressed the Board at this time requesting a $1.00 increase in pay for both Court Clerks. Judge Denosky informed the Board that during the interview process for Clerk Vicki Avery, and Katy Wood, they were to start at $13.50/hr. and following a 90 day probationary period, would be receiving an increase of $1.00/hr. making their pay rate $14.50/hr. Councilman Davis was on the interview committee for Vicki Avery and Councilman Miller for Katy Wood, and they did not recall that information.
Judge Denosky is requesting the Board to approve of the increase to be retroactive as of the 90 day probationary period for Clerk Vicki Avery, and also for Clerk Katy Wood to receive the same amount also going back to the 90 day probationary period. Discussion was held.
Councilman Miller asked if all of the Clerks were paid the same rate.
Town Clerk JoAnn Henry informed the Board that her Deputies were paid $13.00/hr. one has been here for 7 years and the other since December, 2016, and when an increase was requested prior to this meeting, it was denied! The Board took the following action.

RESOLUTION #113 - APPROVAL OF INCREASE IN THE TWO COURT CLERKS PAY RATE TO BE RETROACTIVE AS OF THE 90 DAY PROBATIONARY PERIOD FOR EACH OF THE CLERKS
On motion of Councilman Miller, seconded by Councilman Denosky, the following resolution was unanimously ADOPTED:
VOTE: AYES-4 NAYS-1
Councilman Davis - Nay

RESOLVED, to approve of a pay rate increase, $14.50/hr. for Court Clerks: Vicki Avery and Katy Wood to be retroactive to their 90 day probationary period.

TRAINING REQUEST: Judge Denosky requested the Board's authorization to approve of the Court Clerks to attend training for three days, September 25th to 27th, 2017, in Ellicottville. The office would be closed. Beginning in 2019 training is going to be mandatory. The cost would be $120.00 for the hotel, plus mileage, and the Clerks would still receive their pay for attending. There is also training to be given in Waterloo and Hopewell for other procedures that are required (Dates to be determined). Each clerk would go to one of those training sessions.
Supervisor Gallahan: Why is this only a 2 week notice, and there is no money left in the Court budget for this training. A transfer would need to be done, if this is approved.
Judge Denosky: It is short notice, but we just received this information regarding the training and it is regarding new procedures that will be required.
Discussion continued.

Court Clerk, Vicki Avery informed the Board that training is offered around the State and during the training, in addition to other requirements, we also learn how to do entries with orders of protection. Hopefully this training will provide steps to minimize the paperwork/entries that are required to be in compliance with regulations. Orders of Protection are very complex and time consuming, and they need to be done ASAP.

Supervisor Gallahan: Yes.
Judge Denosky suggested that should be put in writing.

Judge Denosky: In regard to the job description for Constable that was provided to us, there are items on there that should / need to be changed/revised.

***Deputy Supervisor Phillips asked Ms. Alma O'Connor if she wished to address the Board at this time.

Ms. O'Connor: I am still coming to this Board, as she has done for several years, with the same request to get a culvert pipe put in to alleviate the drainage on her property. It was supposed to be done last year again, and she is still waiting! The original drain was put in over 50 years ago and at that time it was put in incorrectly by the Town.
Superintendent Holtz: This project was budgeted for last year, and he was starting it and then had to stop. There were no revenues to allow him to continue. It is in the budget again for this year, but the projects that qualify for CHIPS funding have to be completed first in order to get reimbursement from the State.
Superintendent Holtz: The problem for Ms. O'Connor could be temporarily fixed, but it would cause flooding to the neighbors properties. It would be better to do it right the first time, and not have to make repairs or replacement in a few years. Wayne discussed the procedure that needed to be done to get the pipe installed.
Deputy Phillips: When does the CHIPS funding reimbursement come in?
Superintendent Holtz: Usually August/September.
Ms. O'Connor: So when should this project get done?
Superintendent Holtz: It is on my schedule for this year again. Hopefully by August / September.
Deputy Phillips: The CHIPS funding is due to come in around mid August, and you will be put at the top of the list.
Ms. O'Connor: Okay, that is going to be written down!

***Deputy Supervisor Phillips asked Mary D'Amico if she wished to address the Board at this time.

Ms. D'Amico: Asked if the Board would consider lifting the Moratorium on Solar Energy Systems. She continued to inform the Board that she has been working on getting funding for having solar panels put in on her property to cut down on the Utility bills, and improve the safety of her home. Her house was built several years ago, and was in need for upgrades. There are several compliance requirements with a NYSERDA funded project, which she has been working on since last November to get this project done, and now finds out that there is a moratorium on solar energy systems in the Town of Manchester. Ms. D'Amico feels that solar energy would be a great benefit to residents/homeowners in the Town.
Deputy Phillips explained why the moratorium was put into place.
Ms. D'Amico: RG&E only allows the homeowner to put in solar panels for what they will use.
Steve DeHond informed those in attendance that the proposal for the Code of the Town of Manchester regarding Solar Energy Systems has been completed by the Planning Board and is being presented in its final format to the Town Board tonight. The procedure would then require it to be forwarded to the Town Attorney and the County Planning Board. If it is then approved, it would be presented by the Town Board in a Local Law to be included in the Town Code Book. (Following Local Law procedure.)
Ms. D'Amico has a lot invested in this project, and needs to move forward ASAP.
Thank you.

***Deputy Supervisor Phillips asked Corey Mahoney if he wished to address the Board at this time.
Mr. Mahoney inquired as to what the Board decided after he attended the May 9th meeting.
Deputy Phillips: In regard to the issue being discussed, there is no evidence that the pipe in place is not working.
Mr. Mahoney: It is working, but the pipe that was originally there was a 28" pipe and replaced with a 24" pipe. Discussion continued regarding this situation. Mr. Mahoney stated that he had checked with the Macedon Highway Superintendent regarding this pipe issue and he has given a different opinion for the installation of the pipe.
Several comments were made.
Deputy Phillips asked Mr. Mahoney to provide that opinion in writing.
Following discussion, Deputy Phillips asked Superintendent Holtz to check with the County Soil & Water Dept. to request their opinion of the situation.
Mr. Mahoney said he will be back at the next meeting in July.


***Deputy Supervisor Phillips asked Christopher Waite if he wished to address the Board at this time regarding the Kirby's Kompound situation.
Attorney Russ Kenyon informed the Board that he and Kirby have identified the issues that happened at the May 6th mud run, as per the police report submitted to Supervisor Gallahan. Mr. Kenyon continued with identification of some issues of what went wrong at that run.
The weather had a big impact on several issues at that run. 1) pink shirts are worn by all of the workers/volunteers, and due to the heavy rain, the rain gear covered up the shirts and it made them difficult to be identified; 2) there is a need for professional security; 3) the parking areas had to be moved, due to the heavy rain; 4) Unruly behaviors. Attorney Kenyon proceeded with how the situations would be taken care of. A NYS licensed security guard person has agreed to work at the June 24, 2017 event at Kirby's Kompound (a signed letter was provided to the Board for this). There will be different colored wristbands given to every patron to designate age (over/under 21). There is a 0 tolerance for any and all underage drinking. All coolers that are brought in are checked and have been since the first mud run. Visibility of all Staff will be increased. Signage with rules and handout w/rules will be done.
There will be a designated / visible parking area for law enforcement & the ambulance / first responders. If there are any other issues, 911 will be the first call made, and the Sheriff's dept. would be dealing with the situation. Additional equipment has been purchased to make sure the road is cleaned up.
A list of volunteers will be provided to the Town CEO prior to each of the runs.

Attorney Kenyon: A handout of a letter to Supervisor Gallahan and a list of policy modifications that Kirby has in place for future mud runs has been provided to the Board at this time. Kirby (Chris) Waite has always complied with the requirements of the Town and feels that this last run with issues has made them more aware of situations, and they have addressed those issues to make the mud runs better.
Deputy Phillips: Thank you for coming in and addressing the issues.

BOARD MEMBER ITEMS:
Councilman Davis: Questioned the issues at the transfer station with the swipe cards.
Town Clerk, JoAnn Henry, informed the Board that there are several card dates that are expiring, due to the original date purchased. Several people were recently in questioning if they lose the money on the card if it hits the expiration date and automatically goes inactive. Most of the people understand how the system works after it is explained to them.

Councilman Davis asked Superintendent Holtz about the situation that Mr. Mahoney had addressed the Board about. Superintendent Holtz did not feel the pipe should be replaced, and that the 24" pipe is sufficient for the flows in that area, and the 28" pipe would not make a difference. It is a swamp area. If the Board requests the elevation to be checked again, he will do so. No other comments /or/ requests from the Board were stated at this time.
