PENN YAN—A petition containing 40 signatures was presented to the Milo town board at its Oct. 18 meeting. Franklin Street resident Carl Kaiser Sr. presented the document which contained 40 signatures. The petition asks the town to construct a road from the Penn Yan wastewater treatment plant off Franklin Street to Himrod Road. Heavy traffic and concerns about emergency access were the reasons listed. Penn Yan Public Works Director Dick Osgood attended the Aug. 16 meeting of the town. During that meeting he asked the town to consider building a road. No decision was made. Osgood estimated the cost at $131,000. In other business: Socha said the town had won a lawsuit brought by several town residents who opposed granting of a permit for a Major Subdivision on Sisson Road. Socha said the town had been careful. The town won. This case cost the town $5,000 to defend. The town’s Comprehensive Plan includes recommendations on subdivisions but changes to zoning are not yet in place. • Engineer for the town Wayne Ackart reported there is a possibility of funding for an updated study of a water project on Route 14. The original study was done about five years ago. Senator Kirsten Gillibrand’s office has indicated $5 million may be available for an updated study. Ackart said securing funding, “Is a real long shot.” Ackart said the cost of the project five years ago was estimated at $17 million. • Assessor Patrick Grimaldi said school tax receipts containing an error were sent out. The original bills contained the correct assessment amount. The receipts showed double the actual assessment. Grimaldi said he is trying to ascertain if the school district is obliged to send out corrected receipts. • Council member Leslie Church asked if the town had any plans for a place for leaves. Church asked if there is any way the town could be part of a solution. The town does not pick up leaves. Council member Dale Hallings said the town cannot pick up leaves because they do not have the necessary equipment. Hallings will check with Highway Superintendent Phil Strong to see if there is some solution. • The board discussed the problems that have been created with closing of the transfer station in the town. Socha said the town can at least write a letter expressing the town’s concern. • Four public hearings were scheduled on Nov. 4, beginning at 7 p.m. Included are hearings on the 2011 Milo Budgets, Milo Special District Budgets and the Penn Yan and Himrod Fire Contracts. • Action on a six month extension of a Moratorium on Multi-Family Dwellings was postponed to Nov. 4. The Moratorium has been in effect for 12 months. • Anthony Validzik was named Milo Code Enforcement Officer contingent on satisfactory Civil Service Test results. • Authorized the town justice to apply for a Justice Grant. Software is needed for the new computer. The next meeting of the Milo Town Board will be at 7 p.m. Nov. 15 in the town office on Main Street in Penn Yan.
