Assessment Grievance Day is May 25

PENN YAN—Milo Deputy Assessor Patrick  Grimaldi reviewed the assessment roll at the Monday, May 17 Milo town board meeting.
By New York State law assessors are required to “sit with the rolls,” or review the rolls like this, six times a year.  Grimaldi told the board assessment grievance day this year will be May 25 from 4 to 8 p.m.
In other business: Town council member Leslie Church said there was a good turnout at the recent meeting that was scheduled to review New York State’s process for equalization rates. Milo resident Mark Morris said he appreciated the arrangement but there were still a lot of questions the state didn’t answer. Milo resident Robert Corcoran added he thinks many went away with the question that, after several years of recession, how can you have a six percent increase?
• Council member Dale Hallings said consultant Tom Harvey is working with the town planning board. Planning board chairman Carroll “Cubby” Graves said the board has been meeting two times a month despite members have difficulty attending all the meetings. The board will change to meeting once a month at 6 p.m. to continue work on the zoning review. In response to a question about the extent of the board’s work, Graves said it was his understanding the entire code book will be reviewed.
• Graves gave an update on a request from Lin and Cindy Hough for a proposed subdivision. Rick Ayers, director of Yates County Soil and Water Conservation District,  sent a letter to the Yates County Planning Board outlining his recommendations and the referral was approved by the county planning board without comments. Town attorney Bob Foster said the town should hire an engineer and file a Stormwater Protection Plan for the property. Milo Supervisor John Socha told the board Hough is aware of fees connected with the process.
Zoning board chairman Bill Laffin asked, “Why not include Hough in the moratorium on subdivisions.” Laffin said Hough has no vested rights even though the application was in prior to a decision on a moratorium. Socha said the matter will be referred to Foster. A public hearing on a 12 month moratorium on subdivisions in the town was rescheduled to 7 p.m. on June 21. Socha said the change was necessary because the county planning board had not made a recommendation on it.
• The board voted to return a zoning request for land adjacent to the Penn Yan/Yates County Airport because the town planning board did not have enough information to make a decision.
The next meeting of the Milo Town Board will be at 7 p.m. on June 21 in the town hall on Main Street in Penn Yan.
