No public comments
Trustee Schluter reported that he had talked to the three residents who lived along the west side of James Court, and none of them had any objection to No Parking signs being put on their properties. Trustee Schluter moved that Attorney Hendren be directed to draw up an ordinance to put up No Parking signs along the west side of James Street. Trustee Finn seconded the motion; the motion passed with all ayes on a roll call vote.
Supervisor has ordered three No Parking signs.
There was no building report. The Board needs to pass the Appropriations Ordinance first to see how much money is available to spend on a building.
Supervisor Bennett reported that he had an estimate from the engineer for the repair and painting of the outside of the water tower for $200,000.
The Board looked over the health insurance plans presented by President White. The best plan seemed to be a POS 5250 Bronze plan from Health Alliance for $235.45 a month, an 80-20 plan. Supervisor Bennett reported that Maintenance Assistant Brett Bennett is willing to waive the health insurance for an increase in salary.
