PRESENT: LaVerne Bliek Councilman
Michael Fonte Councilman
Ronald Lonneville Councilman
Monica Deyo Supervisor
Deborah Smith Clerk of the Board

ABSENT: Nathan Kauffman Councilman

OTHERS PRESENT: Perry Howland, reporter for Sun and Record; Jeff Cragg, Waste Water Treatment Plant Operator; Tim Boerman, Highway Superintendent; Duane Smeatin, Code Enforcement Officer; Joan Fisher, Heidi Jensen, Nick Deming, Joe Mander, Randy Balliet and Ray Seppeler residents and 15 par-gov students.

Supervisor Deyo stated we are repealing the Local Law #1 – 2015 and rewriting a new Property Nuisance Law.
A question was asked what the difference between the 2015 Property Nuisance Law and the new law is. Art Williams, Town Attorney, explained that the old law was good, but we added some more detail, for example lawn mowing – if a bank owned property isn’t mowed, it’s a lengthy process to clean up. This law gives one notice per year. It is easier to repeal and rewrite a new one. Supervisor Deyo stated it has become a problem of lawn not mowed and junk in yards.

With no further questions or comments, Supervisor Deyo closed the Public Hearing at 7:29pm.

Deborah D. Smith, Town Clerk/Clerk of the Board
