Legislature signs agreement for marine development

YATES COUNTY--The Yates County Legislature approved entering a licensing agreement with Keuka Outlet Development LLC for remediation work during their regular meeting held Monday, Feb. 9. The work was approved to be conducted at the former Penn Yan Marine site located along the Keuka Lake Outlet in the village of Penn Yan.
The agreement allows Keuka Outlet Development LLC to access the site in order to perform remediation work. This work includes the removal of asbestos containing materials from the existing boathouse as well as the demolition of the structure. The development company will also be responsible for reinforcement of the existing bridge at the site, along with conducting soil sampling and testing at the site, which includes the drilling of test borings.
The property is a 14.2 acre parcel where developer Chris Iversen has plans to build 41 condo units, a clubhouse and a marina with 24 slips on floating docks. The county had previously entered into a three-way agreement with the developers and village of Penn Yan for the development of the site, which requires remediation work as well as supporting infrastructure for the housing units.
In other business:
• The legislature approved a resolution submitting an application to the Office of Community Renewal for a Community Block Grant. According to the resolution, Yates County "will be applying for funding associated with septic and water well replacements or repairs, and installation of water/sewer laterals to low income homeowners."
• The sheriff's department was authorized to fill a deputy sheriff's position during the meeting. The position will become vacant due to a retirement as of March 1. The legislature also approved filling a senior account clerk typist position in real property due to a pending resignation.
• Three positions were abolished during the meeting in the Department of Social Services that were not funded in the 2015 budget. The positions include a receptionist/typist, an information systems support specialist and an additional typist.
• The legislature approved a resolution requesting home rule to renew the 1 percent sales tax increase in Yates County. The measure has been in place since 2003 and generates an additional $2 million per year in additional county revenue.
