  1. Public Hearing

 

9.1       Amend Zoning Ordinance and Zoning Map

 

President Dickerson opened the hearing for public comments.

 

Donald Olsen asked what this would do to his taxes. It was explained that it will have no affect on Village taxes. This amendment is to correct zoning for eight parcels that were mislabeled on the current zoning map.

 

Charles Rothney asked for clarification that we are reverting back to the zoning that was in place before the last map was adopted. That is correct.

 

President Dickerson closed the hearing as there were no further comments.

12.2     H.S.A. Employer Deposits

Clerk explained that once a year, since the Village went to the high deductible health insurance plan, the Board decides if they want to continue making additional deposits to the full time employees’ H.S.A. accounts. The amount paid for premiums and deposits combined has to remain within State guidelines.

Regular Meeting Minutes

As the premium rates rise there is less leeway for deposits. This year there is about $1,815.00 remaining. The budget allocates $2,500.00 for H.S.A. deposits but that amount is too high to be in compliance with State limits.

 

MOTION by Gentner, seconded by H. Dickerson to deposit $350.00, in one lump sum, to each of the five full-time employees’ H.S.A. accounts.

 

Chief Balsley commented that the reason the deposits were previously paid quarterly was in case an employee should leave Village employment during the payment year.

 

MOTION by Gentner, seconded by H. Dickerson to rescind previous motion. All ayes. Motion carried.

 

MOTION by Gentner, seconded by H. Dickerson to deposit $360.00, $90.00 each quarter, to each of the five full-time employees’ H.S.A. accounts.

 

Roll Call: Ayes: Williams, Mulholland, Gentner, P. Dickerson, Kollek-Jewell, H. Dickerson. Nays: None. Absent: None. Motion carried.
