The MS4 report will also be available at the Annual Meeting for residents to view.  Residents are encouraged to review these documents, and if you should have any questions please do not hesitate to call.

The compensation proposed in said budget for the Mayor is $15,000 per year and $7,500 per year for each Trustee.

Mayor Scordino and the Board thanked Treasurer Arta Wintjen for the fantastic job she has done preparing this Budget and for working so hard to get us an AA Bond Rating.

The Mayor also thanked the Department Heads and the Trustees for working so hard to contain costs. He hopes that the residents will appreciate that for the fourth year in a row there is a 0% increase in taxes.

Arta Wintjen commented that with the help of Financial Advisor Dave Tanner, this budget includes some of the 5-year Capital plan.

The meeting was opened to the public;  The Mayor noted that only one resident and one member of the press were present; no one addressed the Board.

On the motion of Trustee Muldowney, seconded by Trustee Basile and unanimously carried, it was

RESOLVED to reserve decision.
