Meeting: The Barrington town board met Wednesday, Oct. 14 for two hours and 10 minutes. Attendance: All board members were present. There were six members of the public in the audience. Action: The board approved budget transfers to put $10,000 and $2,000 into the salt mixing barn fund. Superintendent Eileen Farnan said that plus $41,963.49 from the Finger Lakes Economic Development Center and $25,000 previously transferred to the salt mixing barn fund will cover the project. She explained the grant Steve Wheeler, highway superintendent, helped get for the project is for reimbursement of the cost. So the town needs to spend the money to complete the mixing barn before hand. Farnan said the money from the FLEDC is the town’s share of the first annual portion of the economic development fund. Discussion without action: The town board told the planning board their concerns with the proposed steep slope law. Farnan pointed out that the planning board is still very involved in the approval process. The town board had previously said the code enforcement officer should be giving the approval. Code Enforcement Officer Gary Boardman added that focusing on slopes of 15 percent and more is restrictive. He suggested it be something between 20 to 25 percent.
• Board member Freeman Freeman will make minor changes to a generic town hall usage form form New York Municipal Insurance Reciprocal (NYMIR). Upcoming meetings: The next regular board meeting will be Wednesday, Oct. 28 at 7 p.m.
