Barrington town board 01/27/10

Meeting:  The Barrington town board met, Wednesday, Jan. 27 for 50 minutes.
Attendance:  All board members were present.  There were two members of the public in the audience.
Action:  The board set May 22 as the date for the town’s Spring Clean Up day.
Discussion without action:  Superintendent of Highways Steve Wheeler said work needs to be done on the boiler in the town hall.  He said it was inspected for the first time in 11 years and failed.  Wheeler will get prices for a low water cutoff control and a high temperature manual reset.  The board also said Wheeler could get quotes for a light to be installed in the back of the town hall.
• Wheeler also reported that Barrington will get the same amount of Consolidated Highway Improvement Program (CHIPs) funds as last year.
• Wright told the board about the Keuka Watershed Improvement Cooperative meeting in Pulteney.  Chesapeake, a gas drilling company, wants to dump wastewater in a well in Pulteney.  Wright said he wants to send a letter to the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation saying the town does not like the idea.  The board agreed, on the premise that if anything gets into the lake it affects everyone.  Wright added the DEC puts restrictions on transporting firewood and fishing bait, but is considering allowing wastewater from Pennsylvania to be dumped in the Finger Lakes.
Appointments/resignations:  David Ness was approved to become the town’s code enforcement/zoning officer.  His term will start Feb. 1 and last 11 months.  Wright said he would be paid $1,000 per month, plus mileage.  Wright added three people were interviewed and more applied for the job.
• The Yates County Soil and Water Conservation District will also now serve as the town’s watershed inspector.
• The board approved Freeman Freeman to join the ethics nominating committee.
• The board also approved Eileen Farnan for the agricultural board.
Upcoming meetings:  The next regular board meeting will be Wednesday, Feb. 10 at 7 p.m.
