GAMBIER — In its first meeting of 2013 Monday night, with all members present, Gambier Village Council re-elected Tom Stamp to the position of president. Stamp’s quiet “thank you” came after the council unanimously agreed that he was their only nomination.

The council also heard a brief report from village administrator Suzanne Hopkins and a report from Mayor Kirk Emmert that included his yearly report as well as work and projects identified for 2013. The meeting was largely consumed with passing three resolutions and hearing the second and third readings of six ordinances.

Hopkins reported that a water leak on a service line on Brooklyn Street was identified and repaired. Another leak on the street was repaired by a resident. In her report she also noted that trees were planted at the new parking lot at the Gambier Community Center Park.

Additional items in the administrator’s report included praise for the maintenance crew for snow removal on village streets. Some discussion ensued about sidewalk snow and Hopkins advised the council that the village tractor does not have a cab and she did not send them to do the sidewalks in the bitter temperatures. However, she has researched cabs for the tractor and when their budget is fixed, she hopes to order a cab.
