Councilmember Lindau moved that the following resolution be adopted, seconded by Councilmember Sloan:

RESOLUTION NO. 325-02 - RE: Authorize a waiver of monitoring fees for an approved railroad spur for Sandport Supply.

Discussion: Councilmember Farrell said he is not comfortable with waiving a monitoring fee since these fees would generate sufficient income to cover monitoring costs. Overall and on the average the Town would cover its costs. For that reason he is not comfortable going from what would be a substantial fee to virtually nothing. His other concern is that it may lead to other developers wishing to make their own side arrangements separate and apart from the Town's policy.

Supervisor Puglisi said the request came from the applicant and had been officially received and filed on a Town Board agenda and referred to the various departments. She said she doesn't know if we necessarily have neither the manpower nor the expertise to implement this kind of a railroad spur. Her reason for not voting on it at the last Town Board meeting was that she wanted to find out what CSX was going to do as far as monitoring and the Board now, since she has more specifics she is comfortable voting for it.

A poll of the board was as follows:

Councilman Farrell No,
Councilwoman Lindau Yes,
Supervisor Puglisi Yes,
Councilman Sloan Yes.

ADJOURNMENT
At 8:15 p.m. Councilmember Lindau moved the meeting be adjourned, seconded by Councilmember Sloan. All voted AYE.

Respectfully submitted,


JO-ANN DYCKMAN,
Town Clerk
