Head of the Harbor notes: Personal water craft limits, staff raises

At last night’s Head of the Harbor trustee meeting, the board:

-- Approved a resolution to have the village attorney look into limiting the use of personal water craft in Stony Brook Harbor.

-- Approved a resolution to buy a 2001 highway truck with plow to replace a dangerously damaged one at a cost of $18,750.

-- Discussed recent changes to personnel salaries and benefits which will be discussed further at a special meeting. The latest personnel changes gave raises, but had less vacation and sick time.

-- Discussed who has responsibility for the village’s fire hydrants, now maintained by the village at a cost of about $10,000 a year. Trustee J. Ted Naughton said most hydrants are maintained by local fire departments.

-- Approved a resolution to accept the state comptroller’s revised bid process, which increases the maximum amount allowed before competitive bidding is required from $10,000 to $20,000 for the purchase of goods, and from $20,000 to $35,000 for public works contracts.

-- Discussed the possibility of returning to using “oil and stone” paving on secondary roads instead of asphalt, as per village law. Recently, all roads have been done in asphalt, said Naughton.
