Roll Call - all present

Public Comment - Patricia Christensen addressed the board regarding the EMS Presentation made at the May meeting. She stated that she does not feel the board should agree to put a referendum on the November ballot to cover the SAVAC payroll of $350,000.00/year, as requested by Michael Swartz and the SAVAC Board. She stated that SAVAC is a volunteer organization who does receive revenues through insurances, Medicare, Medicaid as well as donations. They are paid employees operating as "volunteers". Supervisor Stagliano stated that it would need to override the 2% tax cap and would result in a $11.00/thousand of assessed valuation for all taxpayers in the General Fund. Mrs. Christensen said the taxpayers cannot afford a tax increase of that magnitude. Floyd & Lynn Stever also expressed their disapproval with asking the taxpayers to fund SAVAC's payroll, which would open the door for all businesses who might be struggling to have their burden become the taxpayer's responsibility; they feel the town board should not even entertain such a request.
