ACKNOWLEDGMENT OF VISITORS:
At 7:56 PM, Supervisor Pero invited Legislator John Mills to speak. Mr. Mills approached the front of the room and addressed the public. He spoke of items of interest such as the budget hearings that are being held and how sales tax revenue helps to balance the county budget. He noted that the economy in Erie County is consistent. He added that when he was elected in 2006 the counties fund balance was $6,000,000. He then noted that today it is a healthy $106,000,000.
Legislator Mills then presented some of the brochures offered by the county. One of them was for the “Yellow Dot” program. It allows users to write pertinent information about their medications, illnesses, and emergency contact information of the pamphlet, to be placed in their freezer. The user then sticks the yellow dot to their door for first responders to have the information needed to treat them. It can also be used in their vehicles. Place the pamphlet in the glove box and put the yellow sticker on the back window for first responders.
He closed by stating he is here to promote the southern tier of Erie County and has many plans to continue his efforts.
POOL SUPERVISOR: Supervisor Pero summarized the attendance at this year’s summer recreation program. There are 84 resident children and 54 non-resident children. The program runs from July 6th to August 15 this year. He mentioned recent pool incidents that have required the attention of Building Superintendent Allen Nolan. Due to the necessity to expand his responsibilities to oversee the pool activities, Supervisor Pero asked the Board to approve a pay increase of $100.00/week during pool season for Allen Nolan. He added that Mr. Nolan did not ask for the increase but Supervisor Pero felt it was fair to increase his pay during the increase in his duties. Attorney Trask responded that you cannot create an in-house position; it has to be a civil service position. He added that you can’t create new positions without civil service approval. Supervisor Pero then concluded that since Allen is already Building Superintendent, a new position is not required, therefore, he motioned to the Board to increase his current pay by $100.00 per week during pool season. Councilman DeCarlo seconded the motion. A roll call vote was taken: Supervisor Pero-aye, Councilman DeCarlo-aye, Councilman Kaczmarek-aye, Councilman Clark-aye. 4 ayes, 0 nays. MOTION CARRIED.

REASONS SUPPORTING THE NEGATIVE DECLARATION:
1. Air, Water, Noise, Waste, Erosion, Drainage, Site Disturbance Effects:
The Action will not create any permanent adverse change in the existing air quality, water quality or noise levels, nor in solid waste production, nor potential for erosion, nor promote flooding or drainage problems.

CRAIG KAISER (Engineer with GHD, formally CRA) spoke. He described the project Conceptual Plan they are proposing to the Town in regards to the Town’s proposed purchase of Park Land on the lake. The cost of the proposal is $18,700.00. The Conceptual Plan will provide the following:

The plan will address items of concern such as annual cost of staff and equipment to maintain the park. It will address items of environmental concern. The plan will contain a Report that summarizes what this project entails.
The Board asked how long this Conceptual Plan will take to complete. Craig answered four to six months. Supervisor Pero was concerned that the owner wanted to sell it sooner to avoid the payment of upcoming taxes for the property. Supervisor Pero asked if the Conceptual Plan can be done later. Attorney Trask replied that the Plan will allow the residents to know what is all involved in this purchase. Having the Conceptual Plan will aid in answering the questions the residents may have. Councilman Clark asked if there was any way to speed up the process. Craig answered four to six months.
Supervisor Pero then asked if the Board could authorize him to sign an agreement with GHD (formally CRA) on the condition that the land owner puts it in writing that they will approve the time period necessary for the Conceptual Plan completed, and to maintain the same sale price.
Supervisor Pero then motioned for the Board to allow him to sign a contract with GHD to begin the Conceptual Plan (Reference #630977) at the quoted cost of $18,700.00 with Commencement of getting a written agreement in writing that the seller will wait the six months.

SUPERVISOR’S LOSS OF SECRETARY, REQUEST TO FILL POSITION AND CHANGE TO SALARY: Supervisor Pero announced that his Secretary Michele Browning has taken a new job. She will be leaving at the end of the month. He explained that this is not an easy position to fill and would like to ask the Board to change the pay to $400 per week salary temporarily. He then asked the Board to allow him to appoint himself to the position, until he could find a replacement. Councilman Kaczmarek asked if this was a temporary request. Supervisor Pero responded yes. Councilman Kaczmarek then suggested appointing him to the position hourly, rather than salary. Supervisor Pero discussed his reasons for wanting to change the position to salary, explaining it would save the Town money. The Board did not vote on this request. Supervisor Pero rejected the hourly pay suggested by Councilman Kaczmarek, therefore, no action was taken. After further discussion, Supervisor Pero ended by stating he will pay himself hourly.

Supervisor Pero attended 18 meetings in June
RECOGNIZED PRIVILEGE OF THE FLOOR: Denny Cain, president of the Lotus Bay association spoke regarding the proposed beach property purchase. He questioned the Town spending $18,000 on a land purchase and no one has heard of it yet. Supervisor Pero responded that the owner has an opportunity to sell the land but is offering it to the Town on the condition that it stays forever green. Supervisor Pero went on to add that it will be open to Town residents only, and it will remain undeveloped. The portion on the east side of Old Lake Shore Road could be developed into a dry campground for residents. The land on the east side would remain undeveloped. Mr. Cain then asked why the Town needs to own beach front property, and why not residents use Evangola Beach. Supervisor Pero answered that residents have to pay to access Evangola Beach. Councilman Clark added that Evangola Park is a State Park, and the Town of Brant is the only Town that borders the lake, yet has no access to the beach. Mr. Cain then asked why the Town doesn’t make an offer to the State to pay one flat annual fee to allow Town residents to have free access to Evangola Beach. Supervisor Pero responded that he has worked for years to obtain free access for the residents to no avail. The Town lost that valuable lake property to eminent domain with the state and therefore lost at least a million dollars in tax money.
Mr. Cain then asked the proposed purchase price. Pero responded $600,000.00. Supervisor Pero said that the contract will demand that it stay green. There are eagles nest on the property that need to be protected. Mr. Cain then advised the Board to make sure residents are aware of the Boards plan to purchase this property. Supervisor Pero responded there will be public meetings. Councilman Clark added that the early meetings were contractual and discussions then were not public, but now they are.
Mike Boismenu spoke next. He asked if the Board has approached the State in an effort to get beach access to the residents. Supervisor Pero answered yes, and added that the seller has been approached by developers that would pay more for the property, but would develop it. She was offered 2 to 3 million dollars for it. If the Town doesn’t get it, developers will, and it the green space will be gone.
Debra Ritz asked what the Town will lose in tax revenue if it is taken off the tax roll. Supervisor Pero answered that the Town’s portion of the tax is roughly 2,200 per year.
Patty Friend thanked Councilman Kaczmarek, Donald Hepkins and Supervisor Pero for their hard work during Brantfest. The audience responded by clapping.

• Letter from Nest regarding the sale of rain barrels until July 31st
