Jerusalem town board 04/21/10

Meeting: Jerusalem town board met for one and one half hours on April 21.
Attendance: Councilman Neil Simmons was absent. Five members of the public were in the audience.
Action: Following a public hearing, the board approved changes to the town zoning ordinance regarding the duration of building permits, when permits may be issued and correcting a reference to the Executive Law. Work must commence within six months following the date of issuance of a permit and expire 12 months after the issuance date.
• Scheduled a public hearing on the steep slopes law at 7 p.m. on May 19.
• Approved a four inch water line for an area in Keuka Park. Engineer for the town Wayne Ackart said easements are needed because it is considered part of the public water supply.
Discussion without action: Preliminary plans for a town clean up day were discussed. Councilman Mike Folts said Councilman Max  Parson has worked on the project and the committee is in favor of going on. The projected cost to the town is approximately $1,500 but the final amount depends on how much scrap metal is taken in. Supervisor Daryl Jones said the town has to figure out where to get funds for the project.  Parson said the committee was thinking of scheduling the event on May 15, commenting, “This is the first year. It’s kind of trial and error.” Jones said he thinks a date in June would be better because it would give cottage owners time to make it. Folts said it would also allow a month to advertise. Discussion followed regarding disposal of brush with Jones noting the material can be composted but not burned. Businessman Daniel Landis said he would take brush and leaves to be ground and composted for later sale.
• Highway Superintendent Bob Payne said roads will probably be oiled toward the middle of May.
• Parson said he would like to meet with the zoning board of appeals and the town board to discuss a recent decision by Judge Bender regarding a problem with a cottage.
• Jones said the town would like to schedule another meeting with the village of Penn Yan regarding the sewer use issue.
Bids/purchases over $1,000: Approved repairs to the roof of the highway building which received wind damage. Work will be done by Morris Rossman at a cost of $2,875 with all but $1,000 of the cost expected to be covered by insurance.
Appointments/resignations: Deb Koop’s  resignation from the town planning board was accepted.
Upcoming meetings: May 19 at 7 p.m. in the town hall on Italy Hill Road.
