Fate of the Keuka Made rests in two court cases

URBANA—The fate of the Keuka Maid rests in the balance of two court cases, as owner Robert Pfuntner faces an eviction notice from the town of Urbana and an order from Yates County saying the boat cannot move.
Urbana town Supervisor Gordon Lanphere explained Pfuntner is claiming that because in 2007 Yates County ordered the Keuka Maid not be moved, he cannot comply with Urbana’s eviction notice. According to the documents from the court case, the ruling was that the Keuka Maid could not be operated on Keuka Lake, even though it is moored in Steuben County. According to what Pfuntner’s attorney submitted to the court, Feb. 22, 2010, they “are restrained from removing the Keuka Maid from its present mooring in the Town of Urbana.”
“In his defense, he was told he can’t move (the Keuka Maid),” said Lanphere.
Pfuntner appeared before Judge W. Patrick Falvey in Yates County Court, Feb. 16, 2010.  Court Clerk Meg DiMartino said the court date was adjourned before Feb. 16. Pfuntner is scheduled to return to court, March 16.
Lanphere said he doesn’t know where Pfuntner wants to take the Keuka Maid. However, he said he doesn’t want the boat in Urbana.
“It’s going to be tied up in court for a while,” Lanphere added.
The Keuka Maid has been docked in Keuka Lake and unable to be used since 2006 until it is inspected. However, an inspection would be costly. The town of Urbana had granted Pfuntner extensions to the lease allowing the Keuka Maid to be docked in the lake. However, the last extension was given by the board in June 2009. That was when the matter between the town and Pfuntner went to court.
