Fire Contract- The Town of Glen did vote to not re-up the contract with the Village. Spoke with Bill and Tina it was money in and money out. Next year the Fire Department will have to provide a budget of how they will operate and the Village will have to assess that in our budget process to make sure that the money is there to cover their expenses because they belong to the Village of Fultonville. What will happen to the residences that were covered by our district, their homeowner’s insurance will now go up. Glen Park will also be affected.

National Grid- We were contacted by a company working with National Grid to replace all street lights with LED as needed with no expense to the Village. Steve questioned the other quote for lighting in the building. We are not going forward with anything until he brings his packet in. He is working with National Grid and the State. The information handed out tonight is just informational. Steve asked how the building piece came about, is he a salesman, is it something National Grid drove and he was assigned to us? Tim said that they tell you they are working with National Grid, but most of the time they are not. Steve asked if there were other competing company’s and if we should get quotes. Currently, we are not going ahead with anything.

Steve asked how many meters we were keeping. We are keeping 10 for future use. He also asked how long this model will be available. They have been installing this model for 5 years and they are good for 30 years.



Trenching policy enclosed for review.

Acceptable use policy for internet use. All using the Village internet will have to sign. We are not going forward with the extension of the Wi-Fi until this process in completed. The Fire Dept can be petitioned off to another network so they would not be available to the Village network.

Steve asked if we just renewed our agreement with Spectrum. Steve would like to talk them into Village wide Wi-Fi.

New truck is here and the plow goes on December 26, 2018
