Yates deeds property to Habitat for Humanity

    PENN YAN—The Yates County Legislature met on Monday, June 13, and approved transfering the title of a property at 130 Seneca St. in Penn Yan to the Yates County Habitat for Humanity.
    The property was deeded to the county for nonpayment of property taxes. Keuka Housing Council was approached to determine their interest. They do not have funding at this time to accept title to the property. Habitat for Humanity is completing its current project  and would appreciate transfer of the property to their organization for rehabilitation. The county attorney will complete the necessary paperwork to transfer the title.
    In other business:
    • Authorized Administrator Sarah Purdy to issue a Request for Qualifications from potential eligible developers interested in the Penn Yan Marine property.  The developers may then move to the Request for Proposal phase of the selection process. The Environmental Easement on the property has been filed and Yates County is beginning the search for prospective developers.  Following the meeting, Purdy said information on finances and past experience developing Brownfields will be needed. Purdy said the county wants to make sure potential developers have the experience and financing to take on the project. She said, “This is not a run of the mill project.” The 14-acre site on the Keuka Lake Outlet in Penn Yan is part of the Waterfront Development Plan.
    • During the meeting, Legislature Chairman Taylor Fitch reported a second petition requesting that Yates County not sell the Home Health Agency has been received. No decision has been made regarding the sale.
    • Yates County Youth Bureau received notification of 2011 State Aid allocations. The notice contained a reduction of $6,724..
    • Abolished a part-time Employment and Training Counselor position. The move was made necessary because of loss in federal funding for the position. The position was full-time last year.
    • Sheriff Ron Spike was authorized to sign a Memorandum of Understanding with Dundee Central School District for a 2011-12 School Resource Officer. The services are reimbursed by the school district in the amount of $39,350.
    The next meeting of the Yates County Legislature will be at 1 p.m. on Monday, July 11 in legislative chambers at the county office building on Liberty Street in Penn Yan.
