Wayne schedules budget hearing

WAYNE—With the town of Wayne’s monthly financial reports almost up to date, the board scheduled workshops for the 2011 budget, during the Tuesday, Oct. 12 meeting.
The meetings were scheduled through October as needed. Supervisor Steve Butchko presented the board with some proposed transfers to balance the current budget. He said he wanted the board members to look the transfers over and approve at a later date.
A public hearing for the budget was scheduled at the next meeting, Nov. 9, at 6:45 p.m. The town was previously behind in filing the 2010 monthly financial reports, because the 2009 year end budget was not closed out until three months ago.
Highway Superintendent John McEntire reported the town did get its Consolidated Highway Improvement Program funds. He asked the board to adjust the current budget so he can put up all new signs on Sylvan Beach. The board approved it, for $12,966. McEntire said the new signs would include stop signs in place of the current yield signs.
In other business:
• Former town Clerk Lois Wood is now on the town board. She replaces James Wood who resigned because his job kept him out of the state too much.
• Butchko explained New York State Ag and Markets is requiring towns to issue dog licenses and tags now. He said a $1 surcharge will be added to the licenses to help cover the town paying for dog tags now. However, he said the town would not keep the money, but would put it into a pool for the state. A public hearing on the matter was scheduled, Nov. 9, at 6:30 p.m.
• Board member Mike Haff reported on the summer recreational program. He said of 197 students who participated, 39 were from Wayne. Haff explained the cost for Wayne is $5,144.49, or $131.91 per student. He said the program lasts for five weeks and is open to students in the Hammondsport school district. The board discussed informing residents more about the program.
• The board will ask Code Enforcement Office Gill Harrop to speak at the next board meeting about building inspection fees. Wayne currently has an inspection fee, in addition to building permit fees. Board member Lois Wood said she looked at surrounding towns, and the inspection fee is built into the building permit fee. She added the permit costs are comparable to Wayne’s own permit fees.
• The board ended the meeting with a 20 minute executive session to discuss personnel. No action was taken after the executive session.
The next regular meeting will be Tuesday, Nov. 9, starting with a public hearing at 6:30 p.m.
