Tax cap will limit Starkey budget

    STARKEY—The Starkey town board met on Thursday, July 7. Board member Bill Holgate spoke about his concern now that the tax cap is in place.
    Holgate said the maximum tax increase the town would be able to impose is 1.6 percent. He said if there are normal increases the town will have to make cuts. Pension costs would eat up a 1.6  percent tax increase.
    In other business: Public input is needed on the Yates County Hazard Mitigation plan. Holgate said the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) wants input from all towns. Holgate said if Yates County had no plan they would not be eligible for FEMA funds. Town Clerk Sue Crans plans to check minutes of past town board meetings.
    • Code Enforcement Officer Brian Quackenbush reported to the board. He said Magnus Ridge Winery received a Certificate of Occupancy on June 29. Glenora Corners is continuing to work on the winery portion of the project. After discussion, the board agreed to send a letter to the owner of Weenie Wagon encouraging him to apply to the town planning board for a permit to operate.
    • Crans reported 1,750 pounds of recyclable electronics have been collected since the program began. There is no charge to the town. It is a service. Items may be taken to the highway barn on Dundee-Glenora Road during open hours. Employees will check to make sure the items brought in are acceptable for the program.
    The next meeting of the Starkey town board will be at 7 p.m. on Thursday, Aug. 4 in the town hall on Seneca Street in Dundee.
