Hector town board 01/12/10

Meeting:  The Town of Hector held a board meeting in the Town Hall on Tuesday, Jan. 12  
Attendance:  All Board members were present.  Six members of the public attended. 
Action:  All prior meeting minutes, journal entries, budget amendments from last year and audited bills were approved without dissent.
Discussion without action:  The Board observed two statements from concerned residents of the Perry City area on the continuing uncertainty of the suspended project by the Bergen family farm.  The plan was to install a three million gallon liquid manure reservoir into a holding tank that was to have been situated in the middle of a glacial drumlin along Updyke Road near the intersection with NYS Route 228.
• Town Supervisor Ben Dickens invited County Planner, Danielle Hautaniemi to discuss town and county land use planning considerations and what was possible and not possible under the authority of the town government with respect to the concerns of the Perry City residents. Hautaniemi noted that the Ag. And Farm Protection Board, a county body, may be the appropriate forum for registering concerns over the manure impoundment in the absence of any land use planning laws, such as zoning, in effect in the town.    
• The Board heard from Jason Fulton the chief of the Trumansburg volunteer fire department and emergency management service (EMS). The Trumansburg Village Trustees voted to begin insurance billing for EMS services, including the three square mile area of northeastern Hector, served by the Trumansburg ambulance service. 
• Supervisor Dickens announced that the combination of insurance billing and the back-up reliance on property tax revenue created a need under state law for Hector to create a new ambulance district, whose boundaries would coincide with the Fire District already serving that area in Trumansburg.  This would require a referendum of district voters to be held in Nov. 2010. Public hearings will be held in the district in the spring to allow time for ballot processing.  Dickens further noted that the back-up service for the persons using the Trumansburg Fire District is from Montour Falls, at least 30 minutes from the district. 
Upcoming meetings:  The Town will hold the annual financial audit meeting on Jan. 19, 2010.
