Sheriff’s civil division, Nemitz get recognition  

PENN YAN—The Yates County Sheriff’s Civil Division received accreditation recognition during the March 8 meeting of the Yates County Legislature.
The division met 121 demanding benchmarking standards for operating the division and Sheriff Ron Spike accepted the recognition from New York State Sheriff’s Association Institute counsel Thomas Mitchell. The  Yates County Civil Division is the 13th in the state to receive accreditation. Spike spoke before the accreditation was presented, noting it is not required but sought. He said it is important to handle processes in a professional manner. The evaluation of the local office that led to accreditation was performed by representatives from Chatauqua and Broome Counties.  Mitchell said, “Thank you to all of you for your support of the sheriff’s office. This is a way to make sure what is being done is being done correctly. For small offices, regular work plus preparation for accreditation is a big task.”
Sgt. Edwin Nemitz Jr. was also recognized during the meeting as Civil Deputy of the Year. Nemitz has served in law enforcement for 16 years and supervises the Civil Division and Marine and Recreational Vehicle Units for the sheriff’s office.
In other business: Legislators adopted new Rules of Procedure for the Yates County Legislature. One of the changes allows the regular monthly meeting to be held at a different day and time provided that such vote occurs at least four weeks prior to the proposed different day and time. A resolution later in the meeting was made to change the May, June, July and August meetings to evening meetings this year. Legislators Donna Alexander, James Multer and Steve Webster voted no. Following the meeting, Alexander said she did not feel the public would attend evening meetings.
• Created two Assistant District Attorney positions and abolished the First Assistant District Attorney and Second Assistant District Attorney positions. Following the meeting, Yates County Administrator Sarah Purdy said it was a title change only. In a related resolution, the non-union salary schedule was amended for district attorney positions to receive $52,500 and $50,000 and the Supervising Public Health Nurse, $47,000.
• The position of part-time Fire Code Inspector was not filled by the Director of Emergency Services/Fire Coordinator and the position was abolished. These duties will be fulfilled by the respective town or village Code Enforcement Officers.
• Legislators approved a resolution in opposition to the IDA tax imposed on all local Industrial Development Agencies by New York State as a means to help close the state’s budget deficit. Steve Griffin,  director of the Yates County IDA, said $5 million will be raised from economic development agencies in New York State to defray the cost of administration. The local agency was assessed a tax of nearly $26,000.
• Appointed members to the Yates County Capita Resource Corporation Board. Appointed were Kevin Bailey, Craig Densmore, Jim Long, Timothy Dennis, Robert Corcoran, Jerry Hiller and Rodman Williams. Legislator Tim Dennis said the board was created to facilitate bonding for non-profits.
