Milo passes outdoor furnace ordinance

MILO—The town of Milo board passed an ordinance regulating outdoor furnaces during it’s May 18 meeting. The law had been under discussion for several months and it was finally passed as presented. Town supervisor John Socha said, “No matter what we adopt it’s important to have something in place that we can tweak as we go along. It’s not the time to outlaw, but to control.” Socha said, “Tim (Dunn) has a legitimate concern regarding emissions from the furnaces. As complaints come in we’ll have to deal with them.” The vote was unanimous and the law will become effective when it is filed with the secretary of state.
In other business, three public hearings were scheduled June 8. The first deals with a townwide determination of Equivalent Dwelling Units (EDU), the second, to impose a moratorium on Planned Unit Developments and the third to have the town planning board handle Special Use permits. The hearings will begin at 7 p.m. and progress at 10 minute intervals.
Greg Cummings of Larson Engineers presented a progress report on the Himrod Water District and Extension. The project is scheduled to be on line by Aug. 1.
A public hearing on the town Comprehensive Plan was scheduled at 7 p.m May 20 in the town hall.
The next regular meeting of the Milo town board will be at 7 p.m. June 15 in the town hall on Main Street in Penn Yan.
