ADDENDUM TO CURRENT LAW (AG DISTRICT PERMITTED USE) AND (SEQR)
Supervisor Pero read the SEQR:
TOWN BOARD OF THE TOWN OF BRANT
STATE ENVIRONMENTAL QUALITY REVIEW ACT (SEQRA)
Negative Declaration (January 13, 2015)
WHEREAS, the Brant Town Board is considering action relative to the adoption of Proposed Local Law No. 1- 2015, which would amend the Town of Brant Zoning Code to allow existing buildings and structures within the Agricultural (A) Zoning District in the Town of Brant to be re-purposed for commercial uses upon issuance of a Special Permit (hereinafter “Project” or “Action”); and
WHEREAS, the Brant Town Board previously declared itself Lead Agency by resolution dated November 12, 2014 and a public hearing thereon was held on January 13, 2015; and
WHEREAS, the Board made a referral of the proposed Action to the Erie County Department of Environment and Planning pursuant to General Municipal Law Section 239-m and has considered all responses and comments from such agency; and
WHEREAS, the Board has taken a “hard look” at all potentially adverse environmental impacts pursuant to SEQRA.
NOW, THEREFORE, be it resolved by the Board that:
Based upon the Board’s thorough and careful review of the Action, including the Environmental Assessment Form and all other materials submitted in connection therewith, the Board hereby determines that the Action will not result in any significant environmental impacts and hereby issues a negative declaration for the Action pursuant to SEQRA.
REASONS SUPPORTING THE NEGATIVE DECLARATION:

RECOGNIZED PRIVILEGE OF THE FLOOR:
Joyce Ellis of Brant Farnham Road asked how a business can just come into Town and be up and running. Do they have to go before the Board? She asked why there is no weight limit posted on Hardpan Road. She is happy they are holding a meeting on Jan. 20. She questioned if the Code Officer Gary Brecker lives in New York. The Code Officer responded he lives in Little Valley. Attorney Trask responded that in 2010, the Town had amended the code to allow him anywhere in Erie County, and in any County Contiguous to Erie County.
Attorney Trask continued that when the new owner made the request for the Special Use Permit on August 26, 2014 he made certain representations in the application. This permit is subject to expire on June 30 of 2015. It is helpful if the neighbors note the differences between how the business is being run by current owner operation, as opposed to the previous owner.
Supervisor Pero received the following correspondence:
• Sales Tax payment for January 1st is 2.39% greater than 2014 corresponding payment. The YTD amount is 3.71% above 2014.
