Resolution to reappoint Baker tops council agenda

November 17, 2008

The Dunkirk Common Council will have five pre-filed resolutions to deal with Tuesday during its last regular November meeting.

At the top of the list is Resolution 100-2008 that would continue Wallace L. Baker as the city's part-time Animal Control Officer at the current rate Baker is being paid of $2,000 per month. Baker, a Silver Creek resident, provides his own vehicle, insurance and fuel out of that yearly total of $24,000.

According to the resolution, "Baker is ready, willing and able to provide such services to the city ... and will provide such services in a good and workmanlike manner." The agreement would run from Jan. 1 to Dec. 31 of 2009.

Second Ward Councilman Kevin Muldowney is listed as the sponsor of Resolution 100-2008 and also Resolution 101-2008.

Under 101-2008 Wendy Spinuzza's contract to provide services as, 'an independent contractor to aid in the enforcement of the Dunkirk Building and Zoning Codes" would be extended through 2009. Spinuzza's work is restricted to the city's target area for Community Development Block grant funds and she is paid from CDBG funding.

Resolution 102-2008, sponsored by the entire council, will change the date of the council's second December meeting to accommodate the adoption of the city budget by the Dec. 15 deadline. The meeting will be moved from Tuesday, Dec. 16 to Monday, Dec. 15 with the workshop session to start at 6:30 p.m. and the regular meeting at 7 p.m.

The Fire Department will shift $3,250 to the Repair and Maintenance of Vehicles line under Resolution 103-2008 sponsored by Fourth Ward Councilman Robert George. The funds will come from the Equipment Non-Capital ($750), Uniform Allowance ($1,500) and Volunteer Gear ($1,000) lines.

Resolution 104-2008 is sponsored by Third Ward Councilwoman Rose Floramo and is in support of a grant application for Spoke Folk but complete wording did not meet the pre-filing deadline.

Under communications Dunkirk High School Principal Paul Lyons is requesting the presence of three police officers to act, "In a supervisory capacity" at a Nov. 25 dance at the high school.

The council workshop is set for 6:30 p.m. in the second floor conference room with the meeting to follow at 7 p.m. in the courtroom.
