County approves marina contract extension
County approves marina contract extension
WATKINS GLEN—The Schuyler County Industrial Development Agency (IDA) approved a 15-year lease extension to operate the Seneca Harbor Marina in Watkins Glen. The new lease was approved last week, extending the current contract to expire in 2033 instead of 2018. This comes after the Schamel Brothers Contractors Inc. requested the extension in order to conduct a $150,000 dock replacement project at the marina. While the act required no input from the Schuyler County Legislature, one legislator questioned the approval process during their meeting Monday, April 14. Legislator Van Harp said he believed there would be a public comment session in connection with the lease, asking how that session was eliminated. Schuyler County Chairman Dennis Fagan said the state environmental quality review (SEQR) determination by the IDA’s legal council was a type two action that did not require a public comment period. Fagan said the IDA decided to proceed without any public comment, which they had the right to do. Read More ...
SAFE Act deadline requires registration
SAFE Act deadline requires registration
NEW YORK—The deadline for New Yorkers to register their assault weapons with the state arrived Tuesday, April 15. Under the provisions of the Secure Ammunition and Firearms Enforcement (SAFE) Act, all owners of assault weapons are required to register their firearm with the New York State Police. According to Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s website (www.governor.ny.gov), assault weapon owners had until Tuesday to register their weapons with the state. The penalty for not registering an assault weapon by the deadline is a class A misdemeanor, which will also result in the owner losing their firearm. If the failure to register in time is unintentional, a 30-day amnesty period will be extended for purposes of registering the weapon. Those who register their weapons are required to register with the state police every five years. Rifles that have to be registered are semiautomatic weapons capable of receiving a detachable magazine and have one or more banned military characteristics. Read More ...
Sheriff plans to rearrange duties, positions
Sheriff plans to rearrange duties, positions
YATES COUNTY—The Yates County Legislature voted Monday, April 14 to create, refill and abolish certain positions within the sheriff’s office. The position to be created includes one additional lieutenant deputy sheriff. County Administrator Sarah Purdy said there is currently only one lieutenant deputy sheriff position, which also needs to be filled due to a retirement. She said each of the lieutenants will oversee different roles, with one being for patrol and the other for criminal. Purdy said the positions will be filled through the moving around of people within the department. She said prior to these resolutions being passed, there was only one lieutenant position, which was not physically held by anyone due to the recent retirement. The legislature also authorized filling a corrections officer position within the sheriff’s department. The position is currently vacant due to another retirement. The legislature also approved abolishing a sergeant deputy sheriff position. Read More ...
Starkey extends industrial fracking moratorium
Starkey extends industrial fracking moratorium
STARKEY—The town of Starkey extended their moratorium on high impact industrial uses during their regular meeting Thursday, April 10. This comes after the Yates County planning board had previously denied the town’s request for another year-long moratorium extension during last month’s meeting. The town overrode this decision with a unanimous vote so the town could continue to study the effects the fracking industry would have upon the community. Some 22 Starkey residents attended the meeting to show their support for extending the moratorium. Several audience members spoke during the public hearing, highlighting several of the environmental dangers the fracking industry poses. Jack Ossont said he believes the county planning board should not have made their decision without Starkey’s representative and Supervisor Jim Ritter at their last meeting. Ritter said the town has sent their moratorium requests to the county planning board, but they do not have the final say in the matter. He said they are more of a reference, and do not make the final decision. Ritter said the county planning board would not approve the moratorium extension because it is the town’s third one, adding they do not like to see towns extend the moratoriums out that far. Read More ...
Mace Street work begins
Mace Street work begins
PENN YAN—The village of Penn Yan has begun road work on Mace Street as of last week. Mace Street is located between Knapp and Schlappi Lumber and the Top of the Lake Restaurant off of Lake Street. Director of Public Works Brent Bodine said the village is in the process of relocating and rebuilding the street to village specifications. He said to bring the street up to village specifications, the improvements are estimated to cost $157,475. Bodine said the work began last week and is expected to be completed before the end of this fiscal year. Mayor Leigh MacKerchar said Mace Street was taken over by the village years ago when there was another proposed development. He said the road goes down almost all the way to the edge of the outlet. MacKerchar said while the current work only includes the road repair, there will be future infrastructure upgrades to things like the water line on Lake Street needed for development. Read More ...
Watkins school adopts $24 million budget proposal
Watkins school adopts $24 million budget proposal
WATKINS GLEN—The Watkins Glen school board Monday, April 7 adopted the final 2014-2015 budget proposal representing a 2.9 percent increase in expenditures over last year. The new budget  results in a 2.76 percent tax levy increase which is the school’s tax limit.  Since the district has stayed within the tax cap, all property owners with a Star Exemption will receive a rebate check from the state covering any increase in school taxes, leaving the actual impact for this group with no increase. The budget produces an estimated tax rate increase of $.33 per $1,000 assessment. A summary of key budget numbers include the following: The new budget restores four staff positions that had been  previously laid off. These staffers will be assigned to positions of need in the district. There will also be the reassigning of current staff members to meet the needs identified by administrators. Read More ...
Ice damage hits Keuka Lake docks
Ice damage hits Keuka Lake docks
KEUKA LAKE—While the ice sheet that once covered Keuka Lake melts and breaks apart, it is causing significant damage to docks along the shore. Chad  Robbins of R&R Docks in Bath deals with dock repairs on Keuka Lake and said he receives three to four calls daily regarding damage caused by the ice. While Chad said not all damage cases are “total annihilations,” he said it is the worst he has seen in the 10 years he has done dock repair. “This year is kind of unprecedented,” Robbins said. “I have been doing this 10 years and never had a winter like this.” Robbins said while docks can buckle and break due to the pilings being frozen, most of the damage has been due to the moving ice floating across the lake. He said some of the chunks that are five to six inches thick can weigh between 30 and 40 tons. Robbins said if the wind gets blowing in the right direction, they can build up considerable momentum before crashing into a dock. Read More ...
New promoter changes speedway name
New promoter changes speedway name
DUNDEE—Black Rock Speedway in Dundee has changed its name to Yates County Speedway. This comes as one of many new changes to the track by new Promoter Dan Harpell, who recently secured a deal leasing the track from Dean Hoag. Harpell said he has many years of experience in this field and plans to implement more changes to draw more people to the track. “Dean Hoag approached me at a car show that I was promoting in the beginning of March and asked me if I had an interest in leasing the track from him,” Harpell said. “We negotiated for a few weeks and worked out an agreement. I have been doing this for nearly 30 years and I am familiar with the track as I worked there for a couple of years in the late 1980s and I leased the track in 2012 to promote a special race.” With the new promoter also comes a new name, as Harpell said he changed the name to re-brand the facility. “I changed the name because I wanted to create a new atmosphere and show the public that a significant change has occurred,” Harpell said. Read More ...
Will village oppose the gas project?
Will village oppose the gas project?
WATKINS GLEN—The Watkins Glen village board discussed the possibility of formally opposing the proposed Crestwood gas storage facility in Reading. The discussion came after Joseph Campbell, co-founder of Gas Free Seneca, requested the board pass a resolution against the project due to the hazards it poses to the region. While the board took no action, the board agreed they would need more time to discuss it and gather public input from residents in the village. Campbell told the board said there was much concern about the project from other municipalities around Seneca Lake. He said Yates, Seneca and Ontario Counties have already passed similar resolutions all expressing concerns with the salt cavern gas storage of liquid petroleum gas (LPG) by the lake. Campbell added there are other municipalities still considering a resolution, while nearly 100 business owners from the area have expressed their opposition as well. Read More ...
Starkey will again consider moratorium
STARKEY—The town of Starkey will hold a public hearing Thursday, April 10 to address extending a moratorium on high impact industrial use.  The meeting will take place at 7 p.m. at the Starkey town hall at 40 Seneca St. Town officials will gather to hear public comments on an extension of the soon to expire moratorium on high volume industrial uses in the town. Starkey’s moratorium was first enacted in 2012 and was extended by a year in 2013. The moratorium is set to expire in April and the town is seeking an additional year extension. The Yates County planning board recently rejected the bid for an extension, but the town can still approve one with a supermajority vote. The moratorium will allow the town to continue the study on the health and environmental impacts of high volume horizontal hydrofracking. Read More ...
Maguire purchases Learn Motor Company
Maguire purchases Learn Motor Company
WATKINS GLEN—The Learn Motor Company in Watkins Glen was officially purchased by the Ithaca-based Maguire family of dealerships during the weekend. Located at 502 North Franklin St., the dealership was previously owned by Mike Learn, whose family has been selling cars in the village for more than 60 years. New Car Sales Manager Ukiah Kraus said he does not plan to change much at the dealership, adding the deal was made because Learn was “looking to get out.”
“We are not looking to change a whole lot around here as far as the service department,” Kraus said. “We are keeping all of the Learn guys around. We will let Mike go out and live the good life and we are going to try to sell some cars.” Kraus said Maguire brought 100 cars to the lot during the weekend. Read More ...
Two-county group reviews benchmarks
Two-county group reviews benchmarks
FINGER LAKES—Yates and Schuyler County officials met Wednesday, April 2 to continue work on conducting a shared services study. The members of the Steering Committee for Exploration and Oversight of Collaboration Opportunities between Yates and Schuyler had ranked the firms who applied to conduct the study and discussed which ones would fit the best. “There really seemed to be a big difference in that some of the firms did try to address what was in the request for proposals (RFP) and others didn’t take much time to read their proposals at all,” Yates County Administrator Sarah Purdy said. “You could tell pretty quickly [if] one is not cutting it. Toward the end some of the proposals didn’t strike their fancy at all. Some of them were clearly on the weak side.” The committee narrowed the list down to the five top contenders for the study based on the evaluations given to each firm by the committee members. Each proposal was evaluated based on experience in completing similar types of projects, the firm’s understanding of the work to be done, the quality of their proposed staff for the project, familiarity with county government rules and regulations, the capacity to perform based on the firm’s resources and current workload, and the consideration of cost factors. Read More ...

Dundee appoints Houck superintendent
Dundee appoints Houck superintendent
DUNDEE—The Dundee school board officially appointed Kelly Houck as their selection to become the next superintendent Thursday, March 27. Houck was the school superintendent for the Canaseraga Central School District, issuing her resignation to that district’s school board later the same night. Houck will officially take over from Interim Superintendent Laurie Hopkins-Halbert July 1, but she said her transition plan includes spending one day a week in the district between now and then to get adjusted to the new setting. Houck said she applied for the job because it fits her style as an educator and because the district is very well run by staff and administrators. “[I applied for the position] for personal, professional as well as selfish reasons as well,” Houck said. “Personally and professionally as well, I am appreciative of Dundee’s commitment to excellence. They do not let the size of the district get in the way of what they are providing for students. The size of the district also fits perfectly with my leadership style. I’m very much a hands-on superintendent. I enjoy building relationships with staff, students and the community as we work toward making sure our students have all of the skill sets necessary to be successful in the 21st century.” Read More ...

Winter grape damage gets disaster relief
Winter grape damage gets disaster relief
TRI-COUNTY AREA—After the eighth coldest winter on record, area grape growers are attempting to recover from the damage to their buds and vines. Some 19 counties in New York recently received disaster designations due to the crop damage caused by extreme cold this winter, including Yates, Schuyler and Steuben Counties. The weather especially has impacted grape growers, with more than 50 percent of buds being damaged in some areas.  Cornell Cooperative Extension Viticulture Educator Michael Colizzi said vineyards at the northernmost sections of the Finger Lakes suffered the most damage to their primary buds. He said the farther south along Keuka and Seneca Lakes, the less damage there is, despite the fact the vineyards can be relatively close to each other. Colizzi said vineyards on the western slopes of Seneca Lake that face eastward toward the lake also saw higher damage percentages than those on the other side of the lake. “In the Finger Lakes, what we are looking at is there definitely damage out there,” Colizzi said. “It depends where you are in the Finger Lakes as to how significant that damage is. The northern part of the Finger lakes seems to have a lot worse damage than the southern part of the Finger Lakes.” Read More ...
