 Starkey discusses fracking concerns

    DUNDEE—During the Starkey town hall meeting on Thursday, Dec. 8, planning board member George Lawson started the meeting with a discussion on hydrofracking.
    The planning board is ready to begin sessions without a moratorium, but the town board is waiting to hear attorney Helen Slottje’s review of the town’s zoning regulations.  Susan Walker mailed the town board petition signatures for the moratorium on hydrofracking.
    Supervisor Dick Burcaw wrote a letter to the state reinforcing the town’s support of Yates County resolution 309-11, which requests for the governor and state legislature to apply the same standards to the Yates County and Finger Lakes watersheds that the Department of Environmental Conservation would apply to New York City and Syracuse watersheds.  
    In other business:  A letter of resignation from town attorney Derek Brocklebank was received.  Brocklebank does not want to be reappointed in 2012.
    • A resolution was passed to update the signature cards at Five-Star Bank and Chemung Canal Bank.  As of Jan. 1, 2012, Jim Ritter, Fred Shoemaker, and Lawson will have the authority to sign checks.  
    • A resolution was passed which authorizes the town supervisor to sign the easement agreement and the state Transfer Tax Affidavit between Judy McFarlin and the town of Starkey.
