Town board establishes storm water remediation project in lake watershed

— The agreement was back dated to take effect Jan. 1, 2013, to last until Dec. 31, 2014.

The new project is another tool for the town to use to support the health of Cazenovia Lake. The town already has established regulations relating to the use of phosphorous-based lawn treatments within the lake watershed area, established the Cazenovia Lake Watershed Council and adopted the Cazenovia Lake Watershed Management Plan.

Also at the meeting, the board:

—Approved a request from the Cazenovia Rowing Club to use a portion of Gypsy Bay Park for its 2013 rowing season, including a one-day Memorial Day fundraiser by the CRC to be held in the Gypsy Bay parking area.

—Approved the sale by public auction of four pieces of surplus town equipment, including a 1985 Mack Plow, with the sale proceeds to be exclusively used to purchase highway department machinery, tools and equipment.

—Authorized the town supervisor to enter into a lease/purchase agreement for two heavy duty highway trucks plus equipment packages at a price not to exceed $206,356 for both trucks. The town would enter into two, seven-year leases with payments beginning March 4, 2013.

—Authorized the town highway superintendent to purchase one new 2013 John Deere wheeled loader at a price not to exceed $144, 895.79.

¬—Declared the 2012 financial records kept by Linda Mather, town clerk and town tax collector, to be “complete and in good order” after performing an audit of the town office, tax collection and zoning department.

—Accepted a deed of conservation easement from Owaghena LLC for a portion of the land in the Owaghena Farms subdivision at 1330 Owaghena Road.
