DELORIA:Okay letís call this meeting to order and stand for the pledge please.Mr. Dougan.

 

DOUGAN:Good morning everyone.Would you like to start with my resolutions?

 

DELORIA:Sure Jim, please.

 

DOUGAN:I only have a few resolutions today.The first is to carry over some funds in Fairgrounds specifically budgeted in 2022, was the painting of Floral Hall. We bid that a couple of times, the last bids were received late in November.Iíd like to carry these funds forward to then be able to award the contract to the low bidder, Rayville.So, this first resolution is just to carry over those funds, a budget amendment.

 

RESOLUTION AUTHORIZING A BUDGET AMENDMENT IN THE DEPARTMENT OF PUBLIC WORKS-FAIRGROUNDS INCREASING REVENUES AND APPROPRIATIONS IN THE AMOUNT OF $80,885.00, 2022 CARRYOVER FUNDS.Wright, Barber

 

DELORIA:Any other questions?Any opposed, all in favor Ė carried.

 

DOUGAN:Number two is to authorize the purchasing agent to award the contract to Rayville Painting in the amount of $80,885.00, for the painting of Floral Hall, those would be budgeted funds and further authorizing the County Chairman or County Manager to sign that contract.

 

RESOLUTION AUTHORIZING THE PURCHASING AGENT TO AWARD A CONTRACT TO RAYVILLE PAINTING CORPORATION IN THE AMOUNT OF $80,885.00, FOR THE PAINTING OF FLORAL HALL AT THE ESSEX COUNTY FAIRGROUNDS, WITH FUNDS TO COME FROM BUDGETED FUNDS AND FURTHER AUTHORIZING THE COUNTY CHAIRMAN OR COUNTY MANAGER TO EXECUTE SAID CONTRACT.DeZalia, Holzer

 

DELORIA:Any questions?Any opposed, all in favor Ė carried.

 

DOUGAN:And the next resolution is regarding household hazardous waste days.Our vendor that performs that for us is filling up quickly so theyíve given me four dates for 2023, July 15th, 22nd, August 19th and September 6th so Iíd like to set those dates if we could.Iíve listed the five locations that weíve had those in the past. We havenít had one in Moriah since 2018, it had a relatively low number of cars so these last few years weíve been doing North Elba, Lewis right at our shop, one in North Hudson and Ticonderoga so if youíd like to stick with the same four and on those dates that would be great.Unless Tommy thinks otherwise?

 

SCOZZAFAVA:Yeah, I donít have an issue with that.

 

DELORIA:You good with that?Okay.

 

RESOLUTION ESTABLISHING THE DATES AND LOCATIONS FOR THE 2023 HOUSEHOLD HAZARDOUS WASTE DAY EVENTS.Scozzafava, Wood

 

DELORIA:Any other discussion?

 

DOTY:Jim, how does the funding work?Is it traditional?Does the State kick in 50%?

 

DOUGAN:The State kicks in 50% last year there was a change in paint. Thereís now a program called paint care which State DEC funds, we still accept both oil base and latex paint here however your Aubuchon Hardwares and a lot of those places also accept it but that is now funded 100% when our vendor picks it up, we do have quantities but it doesnít factor in the actually disposal of that, we donít pay for that anymore.

 

DOTY:And what about motor oil?There was a question on that with a few people that brought used motor oil.

 

DOUGAN:We, our vendor has accepted a little bit of it. We donít advertise it.Itís not technically on our list but there has been a little bit, the problem is we have the tendency to get such high quantities of it so we donít advertise it.

 

DOTY:Okay. So, youíre not refusing?

 

DOUGAN: We are not necessarily refusing it but we donít specifically advertise it because it could be a very large amount.

 

DOTY: Okay, thank you.

 

McNALLY:Has the State caught up on our reimburse on the hazardous waste?

 

DOUGAN:They are, yes.We didnít get paid for 2017.We did get paid in 2019, and I just got notice that my 2020 paperwork has been processed and I have to send in a State aid voucher so, they are only two years behind so I say thatís caught up.

 

DELORIA:Thatís a good thing.Any other questions?All in favor, any opposed Ė carried.Mr. Dougan, thatís your resolutions?Amazing only three.

 

DOUGAN:I will try to have more next month.

 

DELORIA:You probably wonít have to try.

 

DOUGAN: Mr. Hughes isnít here I was going to apologize for not being a double sided report but our copier was giving us trouble this morning, at least giving me trouble and our vacancies we were able to hire one buildings and grounds worker who actually had worked for us all summer long as a temporary person so weíre not really up any so weíre still down ten positions.

 

DELORIA:Anybody have anything else for Mr. Dougan?If not, Jim youíre excused.Alice.

 

HALLORAN:Good morning.The only big news is we say goodbye to our Clerk, Lois Sayward and Renee is off to a great start as our new secretary/treasurer.Other than that we are working on our annual reports, closed out a few grants and business as usual. Any questions?

 

DELORIA:Being none, thank you.Anything else for this committee to discuss?We stand adjourned.

Respectfully submitted,
