Barrington town board 07/22/09

Meeting:  The Barrington town board met Wednesday, July 22 for one hour and 20 minutes.
Attendance:  All board members were present.  There were six members of the public in the audience.
Action:  The board decided to send the steep slopes regulation back to the planning board with changes.  Board members Fred Wright and Ken Christensen Jr. both said the code enforcement officer should be the person to grant or deny steep slope permits.  In the proposed regulation, the planning board reviews steep slope permits.  Sue Lange, planning board member, said Gary Boardman, code enforcement officer, would be the one to approve the permit in the first place.  Board member Freeman Freeman said he was not prepared to comment on the regulation yet.  Board member Nate Olney said several residents had spoken with him with concerns about the steep slope regulation.  He said it seems like many of them really do not understand the regulation.
• Steve Wheeler, highway superintendent, said the Dundee Fire Department wants to put in another dry hydrant in Barrington at Six Corners Road.   He said the only cost to the town would be him digging it.  The fire department and Soil and Water will cover the rest of the cost.
• Wheeler also said that with Clerk Joy Perry’s help he was able to obtain a $60,000 Department of Transportation grant towards building the second salt barn.  He explained in order to get the money, the town must first do the work and will get reimbursed.  The board agreed.
Discussion without action:  Christensen and Wright said the same change should be made to the proposed subdivision law concerning the planning board and the code enforcement officer.  However, the topic was tabled.  Lange explained the law would be revised after the Aug. 5 planning board meeting.
• Supervisor Eileen Farnan said she spoke with the town attorney about the incident on Keuka Lake concerning water rights lines, and the dock and mooring law.  She said he wanted a copy of the survey and complaints, and will write a letter back to the board and residents involved.
• Farnan also gave a report on Yates County’s Payment in Lieu of Taxes (PILOT) program with Empire Pipeline.
Upcoming meeting:  The next regular board meeting is Wednesday, Aug. 12 at 7 p.m.
