Waterville Buys Car Chargers
At last week’s Waterville Village Board meeting, members had both the annual reorganizational meeting and the first April meeting.
During the reorganizational meeting, members Doug Plourde and Brian Bogan, who was appointed deputy mayor, were sworn in after winning new terms in last month’s election.
Attorney Bill Getman said there has not been much progress on resolving what to do with the Ladies Home Relief Fund, which the board needs to disperse to a local non-profit. The Waterville Food Bank has been discussed as the source to receive the money.
Several people applied for the position of Summer Recreation director. Interviews were conducted last week.
Waterville has asked representatives of the towns of Sangerfield, Marshall, Augusta and Kirkland, the Village of Oriskany Falls and Waterville Central School District to meet to discuss ways to share serves and reduce costs.
The Village will discuss with the school district using the Shared Fuel depot; the village’s Department of Public Works has found it more cost efficient to buy fuel elsewhere so far.
Board members approved buying two electric vehicle chargers as the fourth of four steps needed to become a designated Clean Energy Community. Waterville has to decide on where the chargers will be installed and then get bids for the work. Doing so gives the village a chance to receive a $50,000 energy grant from the state.
