Ice damage hits Keuka Lake docks
Ice damage hits Keuka Lake docks
KEUKA LAKE—While the ice sheet that once covered Keuka Lake melts and breaks apart, it is causing significant damage to docks along the shore. Chad  Robbins of R&R Docks in Bath deals with dock repairs on Keuka Lake and said he receives three to four calls daily regarding damage caused by the ice. While Chad said not all damage cases are “total annihilations,” he said it is the worst he has seen in the 10 years he has done dock repair. “This year is kind of unprecedented,” Robbins said. “I have been doing this 10 years and never had a winter like this.” Robbins said while docks can buckle and break due to the pilings being frozen, most of the damage has been due to the moving ice floating across the lake. He said some of the chunks that are five to six inches thick can weigh between 30 and 40 tons. Robbins said if the wind gets blowing in the right direction, they can build up considerable momentum before crashing into a dock. Read More ...
New promoter changes speedway name
New promoter changes speedway name
DUNDEE—Black Rock Speedway in Dundee has changed its name to Yates County Speedway. This comes as one of many new changes to the track by new Promoter Dan Harpell, who recently secured a deal leasing the track from Dean Hoag. Harpell said he has many years of experience in this field and plans to implement more changes to draw more people to the track. “Dean Hoag approached me at a car show that I was promoting in the beginning of March and asked me if I had an interest in leasing the track from him,” Harpell said. “We negotiated for a few weeks and worked out an agreement. I have been doing this for nearly 30 years and I am familiar with the track as I worked there for a couple of years in the late 1980s and I leased the track in 2012 to promote a special race.” With the new promoter also comes a new name, as Harpell said he changed the name to re-brand the facility. “I changed the name because I wanted to create a new atmosphere and show the public that a significant change has occurred,” Harpell said. Read More ...
Will village oppose the gas project?
Will village oppose the gas project?
WATKINS GLEN—The Watkins Glen village board discussed the possibility of formally opposing the proposed Crestwood gas storage facility in Reading. The discussion came after Joseph Campbell, co-founder of Gas Free Seneca, requested the board pass a resolution against the project due to the hazards it poses to the region. While the board took no action, the board agreed they would need more time to discuss it and gather public input from residents in the village. Campbell told the board said there was much concern about the project from other municipalities around Seneca Lake. He said Yates, Seneca and Ontario Counties have already passed similar resolutions all expressing concerns with the salt cavern gas storage of liquid petroleum gas (LPG) by the lake. Campbell added there are other municipalities still considering a resolution, while nearly 100 business owners from the area have expressed their opposition as well. Read More ...
Starkey will again consider moratorium
STARKEY—The town of Starkey will hold a public hearing Thursday, April 10 to address extending a moratorium on high impact industrial use.  The meeting will take place at 7 p.m. at the Starkey town hall at 40 Seneca St. Town officials will gather to hear public comments on an extension of the soon to expire moratorium on high volume industrial uses in the town. Starkey’s moratorium was first enacted in 2012 and was extended by a year in 2013. The moratorium is set to expire in April and the town is seeking an additional year extension. The Yates County planning board recently rejected the bid for an extension, but the town can still approve one with a supermajority vote. The moratorium will allow the town to continue the study on the health and environmental impacts of high volume horizontal hydrofracking. Read More ...
Maguire purchases Learn Motor Company
Maguire purchases Learn Motor Company
WATKINS GLEN—The Learn Motor Company in Watkins Glen was officially purchased by the Ithaca-based Maguire family of dealerships during the weekend. Located at 502 North Franklin St., the dealership was previously owned by Mike Learn, whose family has been selling cars in the village for more than 60 years. New Car Sales Manager Ukiah Kraus said he does not plan to change much at the dealership, adding the deal was made because Learn was “looking to get out.”
“We are not looking to change a whole lot around here as far as the service department,” Kraus said. “We are keeping all of the Learn guys around. We will let Mike go out and live the good life and we are going to try to sell some cars.” Kraus said Maguire brought 100 cars to the lot during the weekend. Read More ...
Two-county group reviews benchmarks
Two-county group reviews benchmarks
FINGER LAKES—Yates and Schuyler County officials met Wednesday, April 2 to continue work on conducting a shared services study. The members of the Steering Committee for Exploration and Oversight of Collaboration Opportunities between Yates and Schuyler had ranked the firms who applied to conduct the study and discussed which ones would fit the best. “There really seemed to be a big difference in that some of the firms did try to address what was in the request for proposals (RFP) and others didn’t take much time to read their proposals at all,” Yates County Administrator Sarah Purdy said. “You could tell pretty quickly [if] one is not cutting it. Toward the end some of the proposals didn’t strike their fancy at all. Some of them were clearly on the weak side.” The committee narrowed the list down to the five top contenders for the study based on the evaluations given to each firm by the committee members. Each proposal was evaluated based on experience in completing similar types of projects, the firm’s understanding of the work to be done, the quality of their proposed staff for the project, familiarity with county government rules and regulations, the capacity to perform based on the firm’s resources and current workload, and the consideration of cost factors. Read More ...

Humane Society seeks donations, grant
MONTOUR FALLS—The Humane Society of Schuyler County held an open house Saturday, April 5 to showcase the progress at their 124 Marina Dr. location in Montour Falls. The construction work at the site is part of a $600,000 shelter consolidation project to locate all their services at one location.

Dundee appoints Houck superintendent
Dundee appoints Houck superintendent
DUNDEE—The Dundee school board officially appointed Kelly Houck as their selection to become the next superintendent Thursday, March 27. Houck was the school superintendent for the Canaseraga Central School District, issuing her resignation to that district’s school board later the same night. Houck will officially take over from Interim Superintendent Laurie Hopkins-Halbert July 1, but she said her transition plan includes spending one day a week in the district between now and then to get adjusted to the new setting. Houck said she applied for the job because it fits her style as an educator and because the district is very well run by staff and administrators. “[I applied for the position] for personal, professional as well as selfish reasons as well,” Houck said. “Personally and professionally as well, I am appreciative of Dundee’s commitment to excellence. They do not let the size of the district get in the way of what they are providing for students. The size of the district also fits perfectly with my leadership style. I’m very much a hands-on superintendent. I enjoy building relationships with staff, students and the community as we work toward making sure our students have all of the skill sets necessary to be successful in the 21st century.” Read More ...

Winter grape damage gets disaster relief
Winter grape damage gets disaster relief
TRI-COUNTY AREA—After the eighth coldest winter on record, area grape growers are attempting to recover from the damage to their buds and vines. Some 19 counties in New York recently received disaster designations due to the crop damage caused by extreme cold this winter, including Yates, Schuyler and Steuben Counties. The weather especially has impacted grape growers, with more than 50 percent of buds being damaged in some areas.  Cornell Cooperative Extension Viticulture Educator Michael Colizzi said vineyards at the northernmost sections of the Finger Lakes suffered the most damage to their primary buds. He said the farther south along Keuka and Seneca Lakes, the less damage there is, despite the fact the vineyards can be relatively close to each other. Colizzi said vineyards on the western slopes of Seneca Lake that face eastward toward the lake also saw higher damage percentages than those on the other side of the lake. “In the Finger Lakes, what we are looking at is there definitely damage out there,” Colizzi said. “It depends where you are in the Finger Lakes as to how significant that damage is. The northern part of the Finger lakes seems to have a lot worse damage than the southern part of the Finger Lakes.” Read More ...

TYRONE—The Schuyler County Emergency Management Office (EMO) held its annual training banquet Friday, March 28 at the Tyrone Fire Hall. More than 90 people attended the event to honor the time and effort first responders put into training.

WATKINS GLEN—Seven colleges and universities from Michigan to New York will be competing in the 10th annual Toyota Green Grand Prix at Watkins Glen International Friday, April 11. The Toyota Green Grand Prix shows motoring technology with an educational emphasis to promote innovation in sustainable transportation technologies. The competing colleges and universities have entered project vehicles powered by bio-diesel, diesel and gasoline in addition to hybrids and plug-ins. Private and business entries include everything from vintage pick-up trucks to sports cars and full-electric specials. “The 10th anniversary Green Grand Prix will include what I believe is the world’s most diverse field of entries in a single motoring event,” organizer Bob Gillespie said. “It’s exciting to think that this takes place right here in Watkins Glen, where innovations in automotive technology have been spawned since the first races in 1948.” Among the most recent entries is a 1974 Fiat Urba Centurion with 17 horsepower Kubota diesel engine. Returning this year is the West Philadelphia High School team, which in 2011 won the top fuel prize with a custom-built Factory Five that was driven around the track at 160 miles per gallon. Read More ...

Counties prepare for shared services study
Counties prepare for shared services study
WATKINS GLEN—Representatives for Yates and Schuyler Counties met to begin planning how to conduct a shared services study between the two counties. The group met Wednesday, March 19 at the Schuyler County Partnership for Economic Development (SCOPED) offices in Watkins Glen as members of the Ad Hoc Steering Committee for Exploration and Oversight of Collaboration Opportunities. This comes after the two counties were awarded a $50,000 grant to conduct a study of how they can share and consolidate services, while also not ruling out the potential for a county merger. “The purpose is to seek whatever efficiencies are achievable and mutually beneficial in both counties and maintain quality,” Yates County Administrator Sarah Purdy said. The committee’s first meeting was used to establish how they plan to go about selecting a consultant to conduct the shared services study between the two counties. Purdy said the committee also needed to discuss their role, the role of the consultant, the timeframe for selecting a consultant and how to go about handling copies of proposals. Purdy said thus far, some 15 firms have responded to the request for proposals (RFP), including firms from New York, Pennsylvania, Ohio and Massachusetts. Read More ...
Dundee rope team recovers deceased victim
Dundee rope team recovers deceased victim
TORREY—The Dundee Fire Department rope team staged a recovery operation to remove a deceased 24-year-old male victim who had fallen into a ravine along City Hill and Henderson Road.

School holds informational presentation
School holds informational presentation
WATKINS GLEN--Watkins Glen Superintendent Tom Phillips led a group of more than 20 people through the school’s new construction site Monday, March 24. This was the second part of an informational presentation led by Phillips outlining how the district will implement the closing of their middle school, moving all students to the building on 12th Street.
“We will be moving to a single campus this September,” Phillips said. “That means the current sixth graders who are going into seventh grade will be here, along with the seventh going over to eighth will also be here.” The meeting began in the auditorium, where Phillips displayed a layout map of the high school building, along with concept pictures of how each of the new rooms will look. He also explained how some of the existing rooms will be repurposed to accommodate student needs, including the moving of the district office into the new addition. Phillips said some of the rooms to be repurposed include expanding the cafeteria and turning the old pool into a new gymnasium. He said the new areas will not be limited exclusively to the junior or senior high school students, but will be open to use by all. Read More ...
Preliminary village budget below cap
Preliminary village budget below cap
PENN YAN—Penn Yan Mayor Bob Church said the preliminary Penn Yan budget will remain below the tax cap. He said the 2014-15 preliminary budget “stayed well underneath our tax cap,” with a less than 1.5 percent tax levy increase.
Church said this was accomplished even with a 12 percent increase in healthcare, and an increase in retirement costs as well. The mayor attributed the ability to remain within the cap to Village Treasurer Gary Meeks, Director of Public Works Brent Bodine and the individual department heads. Church said Meeks had asked the department heads to budget 3 percent less than what they had in last year’s budget. He said there was also a reduction in audit fees and a reduction with the police department using  a new fuel system. Church said the major increase in the 2014-15 budget is $189,000 for a new street sweeper. He said the village will be able to pay cash for the new sweeper and will not have to bond it. The mayor said without the purchase in the budget, it may have been less than last year’s budget, or very close. Trustee David Reeve commended Meeks for his work on the budget. He said every other time the village looked at the budget without Meeks, there were “things that were weird with it or had to be figured out and changed.” Reeve said it was a very well presented budget, and that Meeks had “great command of this.” Read More ...
