3.  READING OF MINUTES:

 

Before approving the November 2009 meeting minutes, Mike read aloud an email he received from Dan Power regarding the town insurance….. “Mike, you are correct…our insurance market reviewed the loss history provided by Porter and based their current coverage terms and pricing on this history.  As the town’s claims history improves or claims “age off”, more premium credits will be available on future renewals assuming all other variables and exposures are equal.  Furthermore, our proposed insurance program included other enhanced coverage limits in addition to the automatic Flood and Earthquake coverage.   After,  Billy made a motion to approve the amended minutes as written; Mike R. seconded; motion passed.

In addition, Billy made a motion to approve the December 2009 minutes as written; Mike S. seconded; motion passed.

  2. Mike S. gave an update on the Census.  He gave the Census Bureau the phone number for Joyce Greene, Township Trustee, so they could call and possibly arrange for a private place to assist people with completing their census form.  Mike mentioned that they want us to post a picture on the town website advertising jobs available with the Census Bureau.  April 1 is Census day; forms will be passed out door to door in February or March.
  3. The  Town Hall now has a new (used) copier\fax machine combination that is working out well.
  4. Mike S. spoke about codification of our municipal code and encumbering funds for this.   Cheryl said that she would like to take half of what is currently in the trash account and put it in the general account and we could use this to pay for the codification.  Mike S. made a motion to do this, Billy seconded; motion passed.
