Yates approves district change

    YATES COUNTY—The Yates County Legislature approved changing the boundary between Districts III and IV based on the 2010 census, at the Monday, June 11, legislative meeting.
    The change will keep the number of legislators at 14.  District IV was made up of Barrington, Starkey, part of Milo (which is called Milo 4).  According to the change, Milo 4 will now be part of District III, which is made up of Milo 1, 2, 3, 5, and 6.  County Clerk Connie Hayes said James P. Multer, Steven E. Webster, and William R. Holgate will remain the legislators of District IV.  Daniel Banach, Leslie Church, Mark W. Morris, and Robert H. Schwarting remain the representatives of District III.
    In the process of reviewing changes to the districts, the legislature also heard a second proposal that would have cut the number of legislators to 11.
    In other business:
    • A public hearing was set for Monday, July 9, at 1:05 p.m. to allow the legislature to override the state mandated tax cap limit.  The state requires all municipalities to use a multi-step formula to calculate a maximum allowable tax cap.  The legislature can vote to go above that cap if it has 60 percent of more approval from the governing body.
    • The legislature approved supporting a proposed state bill that would eliminate a requirement every two years to renew the sales tax rate.  Hayes explained the county has to file legislation with the state every two years to keep the local sales tax share at four percent.  The legislature said eliminating this requirement would reduce redundancy.
    • The sheriff was authorized to sign a memorandum of understanding with Dundee Central School for a resource officer during the 2012-13 year.  The district will reimburse the sheriff’s office $38,558.55 for the services.
