The board passed the resolution by a 3-to-2 vote, with Supervisor Quinn saying that he would follow up with Scotia to see if they can discuss the 4 percent increase.
In staffing, the board approved James McFarland to the position of municipal storm water officer; George J. Phillips as comptroller for a two-year position; and Koetzle as the representative on the Scotia-Glenville Advisory Board, replacing Mark Quinn.
Mark Quinn also suggested the board change the time of the meetings to begin at 7 p.m. instead of the current 7:30 p.m. start time.
"In light of our marathon sessions, I think it would better serve our residents to start at 7," said Quinn.
The board passed a resolution 4-to-1 to keep the 7:30 p.m.time. The next town board meeting is scheduled for Wednesday, Jan. 16.""
