Milo passes moratorium on adult stores

MILO—The Milo town board met on Tuesday, Feb. 22. The board passed a six month moratorium on adult use businesses in the town. This will allow the town time to study the matter prior to enacting zoning for this type of business.
In other business:
• Town resident Bill Laffin asked about plans regarding revising town zoning laws.  Milo Supervisor John Socha said the intent now is to enact laws on an as needed basis. He used the adult use zoning as an example. Socha said revising all the zoning is an overwhelming project. Laffin asked, “How can you pass laws when you don’t know what the zoning districts are?” Councilman Dale Hallings said the map and plan will be the first step. Councilman Jim Harris said the legislative committee will review proposed laws.
• Prior to the discussion, Socha named members to the Legislative Advisory Committee. They are: Yates County Planner Shawna Bonshak; Town Planning Board member Kay Williamson; Town Zoning Board member Phil Riehl, Town Board representative, Jim Harris; Town Attorney, Robert Foster, Town Code Enforcement Officer Anthony Validzic and Town residents Nate Riehl and Dave Baum.
• Fire contracts were approved. The contract with the Penn Yan Fire Department is $109,440, a 3.49 percent increase over the current year. The  Himrod Fire Department contract  approved is for $80,930. This is a 1.63 percent increase over the current year. Contracts for current year are $105,752 for Penn Yan Fire Department and $79,630 for Himrod Fire Department.
• The board repealed the Uniform Wastewater Management Regulation Law passed in January, 1993. The law needs to be updated to meet state requirements. A public hearing on the updated law will be at 7 p.m. on Monday, March 21.
• Yates County Election Commissioners Robert Brechko and Amy Daines made a presentation about changes in the election process.
The next meeting of the Milo town board will be at 7 p.m. on Monday, March 21 in the town office on Main Street in Penn Yan.
