City of Rushford Village council meeting


Fri, Jan 8th, 2010
Posted in Government

The December 15, 2009, regular meeting was called to order at 7:00 p.m. by Mayor Gordon Johnson. Council members present: Dennis Overland, Roger Ekern, Elizabeth Atkinson, Dale Schwanke. Also present: Attorney Thomas Manion and Clerk Joyce Iverson, SEMDC - Southeast Consultants. Howard Otis attended the Zoning meeting today but is still recovering from surgery.

Agenda was approved on motion by Overland, seconded by Ekern and carried unanimously with the addition of a request from Jason Fitzgerald to re-issue the check lost for work on Coop Way.

Minutes of December 1, 2009, were approved with corrections on motion by Atkinson, seconded by Schwanke and carried unanimously. The minutes to be reprinted and signed on January 5, 2010.

Citizens or Others Present: Andy Gayhart was present for Harters Trash & Recycling, Inc. regarding the cancellation of garbage pickup due to heavy snow last Wednesday. At the time the contract was awarded to Harters, Gayhart had understood that a week could be skipped under such heavy snow conditions. The mayor and council members did not share this understanding and it was not recorded in the minutes nor included in the contract. Gayhart said he would be sending an extra truck this week to handle the held-over garbage so would not realize much savings. A billing adjustment was discussed with the understanding that the dumping fees should be covered. By council consensus, the adjustment may be made at the time of the 2010 spring or fall clean-up.

The council acknowledged that there may be areas not passable the next day after a heavy snow storm and Gayhart said scheduling a pick-up on Friday would work best for Harters. A clarification will be included in the January newsletter regarding the Friday pickup after a heavy snow and next day pick-up after holidays as has been in effect.

Gayhart also mentioned that some residents regularly have extra garbage that does not fit in the totes. He said Harters contract bid was based on 65 gallon totes. Schwanke suggested having the driver note where extra garbage is regularly put out. A notice will also be included in the newsletter that garbage should be contained in the tote and if a larger tote is needed people should contact the Rushford Village Office. Waste Management had called to request a copy of the contract with Harters. Clerk Iverson was directed to provide a copy as requested as this is public information.
