Village asks for museum plan 

PENN YAN—Village trustees discussed a number of familiar issues during their August 18 meeting.
Trustee Nancy Taylor told the board the final report from the New York State Division of Criminal Justice has been received.
In other business: Recreation Director Dan Doyle spoke to the board about the Finger Lakes Boat Museum, commenting a letter related to the village’s offer of the boat launch as a possible site for the museum, asking, “Can you move it forward? The museum would like to develop a plan.” Trustee Bob Church said the village has already gone on record that it would offer the two sites. Doyle said the Finger Lakes Visitors Association has offered to fund some of the costs of developing a plan for the site. Church then asked Mayor Douglas Marchionda Jr. to send a letter to the Boat Museum and the Finger Lakes Visitors Association asking that they draw up a plan. That suggestion was approved by the board.
• Hulse said he has received complaints from merchants about business owners parking on the street. They have asked that the two hour limit for parking be enforced. Marchionda said the village has received complaints about merchants parking on the street as well.
• Trustees approved purchase of two additional Automatic External Defibrillators (AED) then decide where to place them. Doyle was asked to write a grant for six AED’s. The goal is to have a total of nine of the devices.
• A request from the Keuka Watershed Improvement Cooperative (KWIC) for the village to share some of the cost of new web-based wastewater management system was discussed. Seven of the eight municipalities in KWIC have already approved contributing $1,500 each. Marchionda said, “In addition to the $8,000 the village pays to KWIC, what benefit is there to Penn Yan? The village needs to analyze the benefit. It’s not a huge amount of money, but as we try to rein in what we spend.” Marchionda said he feels village residents are being double taxed because they also pay town taxes. Hoban said, “KWIC has worked well over the years. The other towns are taking care of the watershed.” Following discussion, the $1,500 contribution was approved.
• There were two public hearings during the meeting; Adoption of Proposed Local Law Amending the Preservation of Historic Areas and the second, adoption of a proposed local law amending the Water Chapter. There were no comments received and both were approved.
• The board approved requests for Penn Yan Academy Homecoming parade on October 3 and the Chamber of Commerce annual display of handmade scarecrows in the downtown business district from October 9 through November 2 and agreed to permit the Yates County Arts Center to display a tent on the sidewalk on East Elm Street on August 22. Marchionda announced the Isaac Walton League plans a community clean up day on the Outlet Trail from Main Street to the boat launch on September 19.
• A new bank account was created for the Brown Street Water Main project. The separate account is required as part of the Community Development Block Grant for the project.
• The annual payment of $3,500 to the Historical Society (Oliver House) and $1,000 to Penn Yan Public Library was approved.
• The board created a new position of Deputy Director of Public Works for the time period August 31 through September 28. Richard Osgood was hired for the post at a salary of $70,054.
The next meeting of the Penn Yan Village Board will be at 6 p.m. September 15.
