Penn Yan village board 11/8/11

    Meeting: The Penn Yan village board met for approximately 40 minutes on Tuesday, Nov. 8. The meeting was followed by an executive session to discuss personnel matters.
    Attendance: All trustees were present. Two members of the public were in the audience.
    Action: Polling places and hours for the village election were approved. The election will be on Tuesday, March 20.
    Discussion without action: Mayor Bob Church  announced there will be an exit interview with auditors at 4:30 p.m. on Wednesday, Dec. 7.  He said the interview is not mandatory. Church said it is a good idea, particularly for municipal. Village partners in sewer and water will be notified of the meeting.
    • The board discussed a proposed local law regarding disruption of funerals. Village Attorney Ed Brockman said the law would not be telling people what to say.  The law would indicate what cannot be said. This would include things to disturb, annoy or alarm families. Trustee Richard Stewart said his bigger concern with the proposed law is the inclusion of a 2,000 foot buffer zone. Stewart said, “It is a long way.” He added the fact that he has researched similar laws in other areas and none suggest a 2,000 foot buffer zone.  Stewart asked if a permit could be allowed. Brockman responded that the permit process would require forms, fees and police notification. Trustee Bart Winslow asked if the village could hold off on a public hearing until the distance feature is determined.
    • Stewart reported Recreation Director Dan Doyle has the final attendance of the summer recreation programs for the past five or six years. Attendance is broken down by residence. Attendance at the programs by individuals from outside the village has increased. Stewart said the village will not receive any funding from Yates County in 2012. The lost funding represents more than 10 percent of the recreation budget.
    Bids/purchases over $1,000: Approved the bid from Insight Pipe Contracting for $108,195 for the 12 inch sanitary sewer line on lower Keuka Street. An earlier resolution was for a smaller line.
    • Approved purchase of an Online Payment Module for an annual cost of $2,400. Customers will be able to view their history of taxes, and utility payments. They may also be able to pay bills online.
    Appointments/resignations: Approved removal of Daniel Irwin, Tasha MacMillan and Jason MacMillan from the active roll of the fire department.
    Upcoming meetings: Tuesday, Dec. 20 at 6 p.m. The meeting will be in the village office building on Elm Street.
