Town Board Meeting Minutes 1/7/2009
“SPECIAL” ORGANIZATION MEETING OF THE TOWN BOARD
TOWN OF GLENVILLE
JANUARY 7, 2009
AT THE GLENVILLE MUNICIPAL CENTER
18 GLENRIDGE ROAD, GLENVILLE, NEW YORK



Present:        Supervisor Frank X. Quinn, Councilmen, Mark A. Quinn, Edward F. Rosenberg, Christopher A. Koetzle and Councilwoman Valerie M. DiGiandomenico

Absent: None

                Supervisor Quinn – “Tonight is the Organizational Meeting so it is somewhat different than the typical meetings that we have in a sense that the major difference is we make all of our year long appointments and announcements and administrative details happen tonight.  This is the only meeting in the year where we do not have Privilege of the Floor.  We have forty some items that we are going to be taking up and in those items since many of them are similar in the sense that they are administrative or operational kinds of things you will hear us call for a consent agenda.  A consent agenda is if you have similar items, not identical, but similar like several administrative announcements or appoints to commissions or committees and positions and so forth, if the Board so chooses we can vote those all at once and we will identify which ones we think are similar.  If one of the Board members prefer to not have an item included in the consent agenda then they can request that the item be taken out and move on it as a separate distinct item.

                At the end of tonight’s meeting we will be going into an executive session to discuss two items that are pending that involve litigation.  It is not anticipated that any decisions will be made when we come out of executive session.

                Supervisor Quinn called the meeting to order at 7:30 PM.   Supervisor Quinn gave the Invocation and led us in the Pledge of Allegiance.

                Supervisor Quinn asked the Town Clerk, Linda C. Neals, to call the roll.  Everyone was present and accounted for.

Supervisor announces the following appointments:

        a).     Deputy Supervisor – Edward F. Rosenberg
        b)      Commissioner of Public Works, Richard D. LeClair
        c).     Deputy Highway Superintendent, Jeffrey Gemmette, per    recommendation of Highway Superintendent.
        d)      Deputy Commissioner of Public Works, Jeffrey Gemmette

                I would like to make a motion to act on a series of resolutions on a consent agenda so I am proposing that Item #’s 1 – 9 be voted on as a consent agenda.

                Seconded by Councilwoman DiGiandomenico

                Councilman Quinn – “I would like to amend that motion, and make a motion to vote on 1-5 as a consent agenda but items 6 – 9 I would like to have each one voted on separately.”

                Seconded by Councilman Rosenberg

Discussion…

                Councilman Rosenberg – “This was as most people know, we have all talked about it for a while and it finally came to fruition.  One of the things is that our salaries were considerably lower than the surrounding towns and part of that was made up by the fact that not just the Board members but our Town Justices were also eligible for medical insurance and because they were eligible for medical insurance if they didn’t need the insurance they took the opt out which in fact raised the salary.  What we have done as a board is removed that eligibility for the insurance and the opt out and we have adjusted the salaries accordingly and this year it will be a break even but every year it will be a savings because the salary of the board members will theoretically only go up by a small amount while the insurance is going up at a large amount.  It will be a considerable cost savings.”
