B.              Proposed Legislation to Create Rebate Program for Voluntary Upgrade of Cesspool Sanitary Systems and all Sanitary Systems in Vulnerable Water Supply Areas - NancyLynn Thiele

Supervisor Cantwell gave a brief description of the proposed law.  He spoke about the areas that would qualify and the amounts that each area will be able to get under the rebate system. 

 

NancyLynn Thiele explained the proposal section by section.  This proposed law will strengthen the rules for any new septic system, whether it be new construction or upgrades.  There will be two separate legislations; one on the system and one on the rebate program. 

 

After a lengthy discussion the board members asked questions of Mrs. Thiele.  She discussed the sanitary inspector's role. 

 

Kim Shaw, Director of Natural Resources explained their role in this proposal as well as Suffolk County's role. 

 

Supervisor Cantwell stated that they would still have to pick a date for the program to begin.  It will take the County some time to adopt acceptable systems before any deadline could be determined. 

 

Different scenarios were discussed amongst board members. 

C.              Proposed Legislation Regarding Sanitary Systems Code - NancyLynn Thiele

D.              Proposed Revisions to Film Code - NancyLynn Thiele

NancyLynn spoke about the few changes that have been made to the last proposal.  One change is the amount of time for submission of an application and an administrative permit for certain activities.  This proposal requires a permit for filming on private property. 

E.              Proposed Revisions to Public Assembly Code - NancyLynn Thiele

NancyLynn explained the reasoning behind having to amend the current assembly permit.  She spoke about the different types of permits we currently have and the changes to be made to the law and the definitions.  This proposal would be adding an art permit.  The proposal will be going back to the committee for discussion. 

F.              Proposed Legislation to Require Beach-Driving Permits Annually

Members of the board, the Town Clerk and the Town Attorney all spoke about this proposal which would require permits to be issued yearly or for a given period of time.  After a discussion amongst all, the proposal will go to the Town Trustees for input.  Then the Town Board will revisit after their input.
