Wayne town board 08/11/09
Meeting: 
The Wayne town board met Tuesday, Aug. 11 for one hour and 30 minutes.
Attendance:  James McAfee was the only board member absent.  There were two members of the public in the audience.
Action:  The board decided to hold a public hearing Tuesday, Aug. 25, at 7:30 p.m. to establish a moratorium on RVs hooking up to the sewer and septic.  After about a half hour of discussion, the board decided that if established, no new RVs would be allowed to hook up within the town.  Ones that are currently hooked up would have till the end of the year to disconnect.  Supervisor Dawn Dowdle brought it to the board initially covering two residential areas.  She explained if approved, the moratorium would last for one year or until the land use regulation is revised.
• A public hearing was also scheduled Aug. 25 at 7 p.m. about the formation of a water district in Sylvan Beach and along part of Waneta Lake.  All residents within that zone will be sent letters about the hearing.  Dowdle explained that those properties spanning two counties are included if they pay Steuben County taxes, because most of the property is in that county.
• Dowdle was given permission by the board to purchase a wireless card for the code enforcement officer’s laptop.
Discussion without action:  In her supervisor’s report, Dowdle said that the Keuka Watershed Improvement Cooperative approved the online database for all code inspection officers.  She also said that a number of new computers have been installed at the town hall.
• John McEntire, highway superintendent, reported that roadside mowing is complete.  He also said that with the price of oil down the department will be doing work on a number of roads using the Consolidated Highway Improvement Program (CHIPs) funds.  He also added that the hydroseeding being done is indeed safe when concerning pets.
• Board member Candy Dietrich said she would speak with Barney Moravec about testing of six private wells along Silsbee Road for current levels of sodium chloride.  She said she had some questions about his report.
• Dowdle said the town picnic, held July 18, was a success with around 175 attendees.
Appointments/resignations:  The board approved the resignation of planning board member John Gallipeau.  Dowdle will approach Jay Palmer to take the board chair position.  She added that the town might want to consider reducing the size of the planning board, currently five members, and the zoning board, three members, to the number of members they have now.  Dowdle said they struggle to keep just that many.
Upcoming meetings:  There will be two public hearings held, Tuesday, Aug. 25 starting at 7 p.m. and then also at 7:30 p.m.  The next regular board meeting will Tuesday, Sept. 8 at 7:30 p.m.
