Manlius Village Board 9-11

MANLIUS — The Manlius Village Board took action on the following items at its meeting Sept. 11:

• Approved paying the bills for September with the exception of a bill from Kurt Geldean. That bill was not paid, since he did not check in with the village before he started digging.

• Heard from Mark Laktas about his water bill. Laktas questioned village policy of still paying a minimum bill when his water was turned off.

• Heard a request from Trisha Maynard asking if people could be notified before having water shut off for long periods of time, such as when the village is working on lines. The board said they will try to do this.
