A Regular Board Meeting of the Town of St. Armand was held on the above date at the Town Hall, Bloomingdale, NY.

BOARD MEMBERS PRESENT:

Town Supervisor Charles Whitson, Jr., Deputy Supervisor D. Joseph Bates, Councilperson Donald Amell, Councilperson Jennifer Fuller, and Councilperson Dean Montroy.
A quorum of the Board was in attendance.

TOWN EMPLOYEES PRESENT:

GUESTS:

Notice was posted regarding the date of this meeting.

Supervisor Whitson called the Meeting to order at 6:31 p.m.

Councilperson Dean Montroy led the Pledge of Allegiance.


Members of the Bloomingdale Boosters presented the following information: Nine members on the board of the Bloomingdale Boosters have resigned and four people were appointed as officers: John Cimbrec, President, Brian Goetz, Vice-President, Brenda Darrah and Darryl Willette, Co-Treasurers and other new members include Jackie Niederbuhl, Tracy Goetz, Tim Woodruff, and Donna Wilcox. Brian gave a brief synopsis of the previous meeting that took place with the Boosters and Charles Whitson, and brought forward to the Town Board the issues at hand. The consensus was the fields are well-maintained, however the grass needs to be treated as it is infested with grubs which leads to the field being torn up due to wildlife seeking food. He asked if the Town could contribute some monies to the upkeep of the fields and the Boosters would maintain the actual ball diamonds, base lines and dirt. Roger Oliver gave a brief history regarding the Rugby association purchasing the treatment products and the Highway crew did the actual work. He also reported the custodian from the school would bring the aerator to the ball field and do the aeration. The Town agreed the Highway crew will currently mow and treat the fields and discussion will take place in October's budget planning meetings to put money aside for future treating and maintaining the fields, bleachers, wooden chips and ball park maintenance and the Boosters will match the amount. Brenda Darrah brought up the issue of the Booster's insurance and the Town of St. Armand is named as a rider on the policy.

HIGHWAY DEPARTMENT MONTHLY REPORT

Highway Superintendent Roger Oliver presented the following information at the meeting:

The Highway crew is currently working on repairing the roads, being careful to avoid the roads that are going to be torn up again when undergoing manhole revamping under future possible grants. He reported Maple Lane and Moose Pond Road are currently the two worst roads. Maple Lane will be included in the Sewer Project revamping. For a section of 2300 feet long by 20 feet wide the cost will run $29,000. The Moose Pond Road is in bad shape specifically from the sand piers and guard rails prior to the bridge to the second house over the bridge. For a 1510 feet long by 20 foot wide section will take 369 tons of Slim Coat will run $19,000. Roger stated CHIPS money will cover over three quarters of that cost. Last year's work was completed in Rockledge and this year they will continue working on Bloomingdale's manholes and streets. Councilperson Donald Amell asked if there will be any risers needed and Roger replied that Maple Street would need risers. Roger continued to say the Highway crew will assist Stan Ingison with the risers and repairs needed on two manholes on Maple Street.

Roger reported that he has received several phone calls regarding the intersection at the bottom of AMA hill. He contacted the County regarding paving this area and he was told the State did the intersections. Roger called the State and the information was reported that the County is supposed to pave to the State Road. Therefore, the County will come and pave our roads and in turn, we pay the County for their equipment use, etc.

WATER DEPARTMENT MONTHLY REPORT

Water Superintendent Jeff Cotter presented the following written report to the Board:

Town of St. Armand Water Report for the Month of May 2017

    1. Final Reading 14 School St. - On 5/22/17, I took a final reading for Barb at 14 School St.
    2. Leak at 56 Prospect - On 5/22/17, I spoke with John Kent of 56 Prospect St. about a leak he has at his water meter. He asked if the town would provide a new meter and I informed him that it was his responsibility and that I would shut the water off for him at his request. He said he understood and that he would replace his meter.
    3. Monthly Coliform Samples Submitted on 5/23/17 from the Town Hall, Youth Building and Well #5. All came back from Life Science lab negative for Coliform.
    4. Tested Flow Rate on Well #5 at the Pump House - During the last board meeting, I mentioned that I suspected there may be an issue with the amount of water flow coming from well #5. The pump run times were up and the well was producing less water. On 5/23/17, I tested the flow rate coming from well #5 at the pump house and found that the rate was 60 GPM. Normal flow should be around 75 - 80 GPM. I investigated and found a leak in the 4" line coming from the well field. Water was boiling out of the ground with well #5 running. I informed Charlie that this needed to repaired ASAP and I scheduled the repair for 5/25/17.
    5. Repaired Leak on Main 4" Water Line in Well Field - On 5/25/17, I took the entire day to repair a leak on the 4" water line that comes from the well field. All of the wells tie into this line so it was a critical repair and the line is approximately 6 feet deep. I found that the leak was coming from a blown out saddle where well #3 ties into the 4" main line. Well #5 was in service, however the water was leaking badly out of well #3's saddle. I replaced the bad saddle and the leak is repaired. I used the town's excavator for digging during the repair.
    6. 47 Poplar Final Reading - On 5/30/17, I took a final reading for Barb at 47 Poplar as this home was recently sold.
    7. AWQR Certification of distribution - On 6/5/17, I sent in the Certification of Distribution form to the main Department of Health Office in Albany.
    8. Final Reading at 22 Main - On 6/6/17, I took a final reading for Barb at 22 Main St.
    9. Test Ran Generators with no issues.
    10. Curb Box Lock - On 6/12/17, I received the Curb Stop Locking mechanism to be tried in the event a customer refuses to pay their water bill. Will demonstrate how the lock works during the board meeting.

OLD BUSINESS

Councilperson Dean Montroy stated he rode through the Brookside Cemetery and noted a lot of repairs that needed to be completed. He suggested using rebar and poured cement with the cinder blocks that had fallen or landscape ties rather than cinder blocks. Supervisor Whitson reported Cy Ellsworth will begin working on the walls once school ends on June 23rd, beginning with the first tall wall that is falling down into the road. Councilperson Dean Montroy then asked if rather than laying off members of the Highway crew during non-busy times, could the Cemetery position be eliminated and the work on the cemetery be completed by the Highway crew? Supervisor Whitson replied he would talk to the Union regarding the possibility of assigning someone from the Highway crew to the cemetery and he would also talk to Roger Oliver.

NEW BUSINESS

Supervisor Whitson reported that the Town's Assessor, Donna Bramer needed a new computer, and the County was not in possession of a computer that she could use. Therefore, the County purchased a new computer, and then each town that has Donna as an assessor would assume an equal portion of the cost.

QUESTIONS

Supervisor Whitson asked those present if there were any other questions or concerns.

Sandy Hayes stated he was not in favor of the Highway workers performing the work at the cemetery. He stated there was a lot of work with mowing, raking and wall repairs and that he did not feel the Highway workers would have the commitment. He suggested continuing paying Cy Ellsworth. Supervisor Whitson commented that Cy did place U.S. flags all around the cemetery for Memorial Day and his pay is included in the yearly budget.

Mr. Hayes continued to say that in making a retaining wall, proper fill, such as filter fabric is needed that doesn't retain water. It is the water that is causing the damage to the cinder block walls.

There were no other questions.

MOTION TO ADJOURN

Supervisor Whitson requested the Board to go into Executive Session. Deputy Supervisor D. Joseph Bates made the Motion to go into Executive Session. The Motion was seconded by Councilperson Jennifer Fuller.

The Board went into Executive Session at 8:22 pm.

The Motion to adjourn the Executive Session was made by Councilperson Dean Montroy and the Motion was seconded by Councilperson Jennifer Fuller. The Executive Session adjourned at 8:39 pm.

Deputy Supervisor D. Joseph Bates made the Motion to adjourn the Regular Board Meeting. The Motion was seconded by Councilperson Jennifer Fuller. The Regular Board Meeting adjourned at 8:40 pm.
