**Paul Mortzheim: reviewed the figures of the health insurance for the Town Highway Dept. employees, (what family insurance is costing the Town).


Consensus of the Taxpayers attending the meeting, feel the need to hire someone now and under the 2005 contract.

Kathy Biggio & Sally Orr: presented to the Town Board a Financial Impact of Immediate Hire Statement:
Net saving to the Town Board by Immediate Hire would be $1143.62 because the new guy would be paid less money per hour: statement attached to minutes. The Town will save more money on insurance when someone retires.


Marc Stocum: You need to hire now, so the person can be trained on the equipment and be ready for the bad weather. Do not wait until January. Dick should make the decision to hire now.
Allen Neal: We want the new guy to have the same insurance we do. It was in the budget already for Ronnie.

Harold stated that Dick can hire at any time, after he has received all the applications and reviewed them then he can hire at his discretion. Also if Dick wants help reviewing and making a decision, the Town Board will help him.

Public hearing for the Zoning Law Review is scheduled for Sept 27th, 2005 at 7:00 at the Lindley Town Hall.
