Milo town board 2/21/12

    Meeting: The Milo town board met for approximately two hours on Tuesday, Feb. 21.  
    Attendance: All board members were present.  Five members of the public were in the audience.  
    Action:  The board approved a resolution to repeal the steep slopes law that was referred to the town and county planning boards last December.  The purpose of the law is to maintain steeply sloped areas as a means of protecting the areas natural terrain.  However, the board decided to repeal it in order to be able to make some amendments upon hearing suggestions from members of the public.  One of the changes is to confirm that any area with a slope greater than 15 percent must be grounded.  The law originally stated a slope must be grounded if it is equal or higher than 15 percent.  An amendment was also made to the section of the law which originally said it was illegal to propose development where a slope’s area of disturbance is less than 1,000 feet.  That number will be increased to 1,500 feet.
    • Supervisor Leslie Church was authorized by the board to sign the 2012 Animal Control Agreement with Yates County.  
    Discussion without action: Justice John Symonds reported the town received a grant of $10,794 through the Justice Court Assistance Program (JCAP).  The money will be used to purchase new furniture and installing an electronic door at the entrance to the town hall.
    • The board was informed that the Independent Gas and Oil Association of New York would like to have a meeting in the town regarding hydraulic fracturing.  The board is looking at the possibility of making it a joint meeting with other towns.  
    Bids/purchases over $1,000: The purchase of a 2012 Chevrolet Silverado with a plow attached for $28,916 was approved.  
    • The board approved the purchase of a riding mower for $5,851.  
    • Church was authorized to sign an agreement with Larson Design Group to amend the town’s comprehensive plan for $4,500.  
    Appointments/resignations: Steven Neuberger was appointed to the town’s legislative advisory committee for a one year term.   
    Upcoming meetings: The next regular town board meeting will be on Monday, March 19 at 7 p.m. at the Milo town hall.
