Wayne town board 11/9/10

Meeting:  The Wayne town board met for two hours, Tuesday, Nov. 9.
Attendance:  Dennis Carlson was the only board member absent.  There were seven members of the public in the audience.
Action:  The board adopted the 2011 budget.  Supervisor Steve Butchko said there is no increase in taxes.  Board member Lois Wood said there would be increases in the Wayne fire department and Steuben County taxes.  Steuben County Legislator Joe Hauryski said the proposed tax levy increase for the county is up 2.24 percent.
• A local law was adopted, allowing the town to take over issuing dog licenses and permits from New York State Agriculture and Markets.  The state made the change for all towns in New York.
• The board approved renewing a $10,000 certificate of deposit (CD) with Five Star Bank for six months.  Butchko said the interest rate was .3 percent for six months or .35 for 12 months.  The board chose the shorter time in case there is a better interest rate then.
Discussion without action:  Resident Yvonne Erway spoke to the board about building permit fees being too high.  She said the permit to put up an approximately $300 prefabricated shed was $75.  Later in the meeting Code Enforcement Officer Gill Harrop presented to the board about building permit fees.  He showed that in the change to fees made earlier this year, the costs for such structures went from around $40 upwards to $95.  Permit fees for construction and homes stayed about the same.  The board asked Harrop to change the fee schedule so prefabricated sheds and structures would cost less again.  Discussion included permit fees specific to the square footage of such structures.
• Highway Superintendent John McEntire said the department is getting the snow plows ready to go.  He also said he may be retiring in the near future.
Bids/purchases over $1,000:  The board approved paying annual fees for the Keuka Watershed Improvement Cooperative and Keuka Lake Outlet Compact.  For KWIC, Wayne will pay $10,500 in 2011.  The town owes $1,200 to KLOC for their share of the central locks.
Upcoming meetings: The next regular board meeting is Tuesday, Dec. 14.  It starts with a 6:45 p.m. public hearing on the road use agreement.
