Barrington town board 7/25/12

    Meeting:  The Barrington town board met for 30 minutes, Wednesday, July 25.
    Attendance:  Ken Christensen Jr. was the only absent board member.  There were five members of the public in the audience.
    Discussion with action:  Supervisor Fred Wright said the town received its last capital investment payment for switching to the New York Municipal Insurance Reciprocal.  The total was $1,649.  Wright explained the town has now received back what was originally paid to the insurance company.
    •  Planning board chairperson Sue Lange said they had reviewed the road law and gave it back to Highway Superintendent Steve Wheeler.  While Lange said it looked good, she added Wheeler had left out a paragraph about signage.
    •  During public comment, the board was asked what would happen to the hydrofracking questionnaires mailed to town residents.  Lange explained she had gone through and typed up the short responses and summarized the answers to open questions.  Before she gives the finished report to the board, she said she is waiting for lease information from Assessor Tony DeStephen.  Lange wants to include the number of leases within the town and the number of people with leases because it would give some perspective of the responses.
    •  Lange also reported the town and planning board need to meet one more time to cover the last five pages of the proposed subdivision law.
    •  Wheeler reported the paving of PreEmption Road was completed.
    •  Wright said town properties are now at a 100 percent equalization rate.
    •  Our Town RoCKS organizer Lauren Snyder gave a report on the group’s activities.  She said the recent Barrington Community Day was successful.  She said events like this  help people “work together, come together.”
    Appointments/resignations:  The board created a part-time office assistant for the highway department, to be paid with what funds are available.  Wheeler said he currently has three youth workers for the summer through the county.  He said the student assigned to the office has been very helpful and would like to pay them to come in a few hours each week after the program has ended.
    Upcoming meeting:  The next Barrington town board meeting is Wednesday, Aug. 22, at 7 p.m.
