Attorney Kevin Young read resolution to establish a Sewer District in the hamlet of Trout Creek.  He indicated the Pete Reynolds property was defined as community Septic System.   It was explained the Town would be responsible to pump tanks.  Tanks would be provided by CWC.  The Sewer District would be 100% funded by the CWC.  A Vote to adopt the Sewer District and resolution being adopted allows for septic tanks to be installed at the homeowner’s property.  Nothing is done without the homeowner’s permission.  Lamont will contact all homeowners regarding tank installation.

Chris Kinney voiced concern regarding the flooding that occurs in the proposed site A.  Chris was wondering if the repair of the creek is included in the plan.  Nate Hendricks, CWC indicated Lamont Engineering has the same concerns.  Problem with the creek started with the flood of 1996.  DEP storm water Wastewater Design Group has a meeting scheduled.  DEP will be reviewing their concerns with the flooding.  Nate assured everyone that nothing would go forward without the flooding problem being reviewed and analyzed prior to final plan being established.

Carl Stuendel made a motion, seconded by Howard Buttel, to pass a resolution to establish a Sewer District in the hamlet of Trout Creek.  [Resolution 2011-13]

Kevin Young, Attorney explained the 1997 MOA and explained that NYC has been authorized to purchase 105,000 acres of additional lands.  The 1997 MOA defines the boundaries affecting the Hamlet of Trout Creek.  It was explained that this meeting is about whether or not NYC can purchase land within the Hamlet.

 

Andrew Tomao questioned what the Hamlet of Trout Creek included.  Shelly Johnson, Delaware County Planning, displayed a map of the Hamlet.

Discussion ensured with Donald Dumond, Jr. regarding his land which is partially located within the Hamlet and he was wondering if the hamlet was being extended.   Kevin Young indicated the sale of land in the Hamlet was determined by tax map number and if the tax map number was in the Hamlet then Mr. Dumond’s property is ruled by the map.

 

The comment period ends on May 27, 2011 on this Proposed Resolution.  The resolution may be adopted by the Town Board at the June Board Meeting.  Shelly Johnson, Delaware County Planning requires 3 certified copies of the resolution restricting NYC/DEP land acquisition in Hamlet once the resolution is passed.
