Public Hearing at 7:08 PM

Public Hearing at 7:08PM Page 2
to certain ordinances and enacting new provisions and providing for procedure for amending the code and for the citation of the code and the effective date thereof which also include those before mentioned land use amendments. First I would like to report back, it was duly advertised and it was looked over, and York County Planning Commission gave there comments, I was able at the December to address all those comments successfully, except for one item which was the issue of the driveways.
Because now we were required no driveway within five foot of the utility, they felt that was in conflict with our other requirement which says within fifty feet of a fire hydrant. I tried to explain it, saying a fire hydrant is not public utility, even under the Municipality’s
Planning Code, that is not recognized as a public utility, public safety tool but not a utility. Since it is connected to the water main, they wanted some clarification. I was able to contact the publishers, they got those amendments changed. Everyone should have received a copy of those for the January meeting. All the other comments, they were satisfied with the explanation that I gave and were comfortable of adopting them as presented with the comments. Any comments or questions from council? Any comments or questions from the public? A motion was made to ordain Ordinance 2011-01 along with the Yoe Borough land use amendments by Councilman Allar. The motion was seconded by Councilwoman Tyson. All in favor. Councilman Snyder said motion carried.
Adjournment of the Public Hearing and Restart the Regular Meeting at 7:10PM
A motion was made by Councilwoman Coble Tyson to adjourn the public hearing and restart the regular meeting at 7:10PM. The motion was seconded by Councilwoman Tyson. All in favor. Councilman Snyder said the hearing is adjourned.
Councilman Snyder said first on the visitors agenda is Pat Wolf from the Cougars.
I am Pat Wolf from the Cougar Baseball, I am presenting a letter to request use of the field as we have done every year in the past. We have done a lot of great thing working with the field, we’ve done a lot of improvements, the dugouts. We are requesting use of the field for the spring and the fall seasons. I have dates on the letter requesting starting use of the field at the end of March, with maintenance day, all the way through to the beginning of November, which would be the end of our fall baseball season. Councilman Allar said I know you work with Dana, you better get in touch with him. You can check with Dana. Mr. Wolf said the letter states that we would be able to provide man power to get any work done. Councilman Allar said sometimes people forget. Mr. Wolf said we have our field maintenance day the last Saturday in March, I’ll get in touch with him before that and get anything on the schedule to get taken care of. Councilman Allar said do you have month to month schedule, weekdays and hours. Mr. Wolf said we proposed to use it, barring any other events that you have scheduled, if you’ve got something on the calendar that you need the field for, I am willing take our game off the calendar. It is scheduled from Monday to Friday from 5PM to dusk, Saturday 8AM to dusk and Sunday
Visitors(cont.) Page 3
from 1PM to dusk, we will work it out. Councilman Allar said there is possibly that there may or may not be someone else who might want to use it, you have first priority but there are times if you know that you are not going to use it, if I know that I can pass that information on. Mr. Wolf said since right now we don’t know how many kids we will have registered, how many teams we’re going to have. Once we know how many we have registering, how many teams we’re going to have, I can get a schedule and give times that we are not going to use the field. Councilman Allar said if you work that schedule out that would be fine. Mr. Wolf took Councilman Allar’s phone number and name. Councilman Noll said we met with your organization back in November, at that time, plan for the field with restoration, has anything happened with that. Mr. Wolf said we have spoke with Kinsley with donating the time and equipment for the field, we have to talk to them about providing materials for the infield, its moving along. We are interested in talking to you about flattening the field, we know there is some issues about who is providing what. When the grass is all back, we can talk about that. Its probably something that is going to occur in the fall, with the ground frozen, we probably won’t be able to do anything into the regular season. In fall we would be able to get some grass seed down and start the growing season. Councilman Noll said if you could give us a plan of what you are going to do, so Dana will know as well. Mr. Wolf said we are very excited, it has the possibility of being one of the premier fields in the area. Councilman Noll said I just wanted to make sure it was still moving along. Thank you. A motion was made by Councilman Allar to accept the Dallastown Cougar Baseball proposal to utilize the field from Monday March 28 2011 through July 17, 2011 and again from July 23, 2011 to November 6, 2011. The motion was seconded by Councilman Noll. All in favor.
Councilman Snyder said motion carried.
Councilman Snyder asked if any other visitors would like to be recognized? Jim Tyson of 320 S. Main Street, Yoe. I know weather’s been hard on everyone, I was wondering if someone could answer some questions. I walk everywhere, I do not drive, I can see what the other people are going through. Who enacts the snow emergency for the borough?
Councilman Snyder said that is usually done in conjunction between the mayor and myself. Mr. Tyson said when its enacted can you give me the definition of what transpires? Councilman Snyder said usually get a call from the mayor, and he will say he’d enact a snow emergency. At that point he’ll right up the emergency proclamation and fax that in to county control, and they’ll make the necessary notification to local news, and radio and so forth. Mr. Tyson said so that means there is no parking vehicles permitted on streets labeled snow emergency routes? Councilman Snyder said correct.
Councilman Myers said only one side. Councilman Snyder said on the designated sign. Mr. Tyson said if the sign is there, its like a no parking sign, correct? Councilman Snyder said correct. Mr. Tyson said how long is the grace period, and what is done with the vehicle that is there? Councilman Snyder said the police would probably be easier to answer that. I’m not sure when they start citing tickets or when they start citing people. I know what they can do, there’s one of the firms around here that they will tow vehicles. Because a citation doesn’t move the vehicle, once the vehicle is towed, it will go to an
Visitors(cont.) Page 4
impound lot and then you have to go and get it out of impound. Mr. Tyson asked what about parking on sidewalks, what’s the borough’s policy for parking on a public sidewalk? Councilman Snyder said that is regulated by the state under Title 75 and
its illegal at any time. Mr. Tyson asked what about shoveling the snow, how long after the snow stops and what is the fine for not shoveling the sidewalk, a public right of way, pervious or non pervious substance, a public right of way, property? Councilman Snyder said we only have an ordinance requiring sidewalks to be shoveled, which we allow twenty four hours after the end of the snow. Mr. Tyson asked what is the fine if not followed through with. Councilman Snyder said as of just a few minutes ago, that increased to a minimum of $100.00. Mr. Tyson asked what about shrubbery hanging over the sidewalks that you have to walk out into the state highway? Councilman Snyder said we have an ordinance that requires a minimum height of twelve foot for any shrubbery or tree hanging over. Mr. Tyson said if you would like, I give you some samples and locations of couple things I had asked about, the shrubbery is approximately 75 feet on the west side Main Street, you must walk into the street. Numerous sections of sidewalk are not shoveled, you have to walk out. Handicapped ramps are not shoveled open. Is there a rumor, and everyone knows how rumor control is, the rear of the father in law’s property, is the Elm Street Apartments, the main intersection is Third and Elm. There is speculation that refuse containers are going to be placed in the right of way which is fenced off on dirt. When I say refuse containers, its six cubic yard front load dumpster. Is this council aware of anything like that? We have had trouble with retaliation back there, property being broken, trash. I have had the police. And another one is fireworks. I have tried contacting Mr. Henry. I might as well talk to a steel door because that is all the answers I got. I came to see if this council has any means to try to alleviate some of the tension, that our residents there, I have done some checking on my own. When you move into this state, you have thirty days irregardless , once you sign a lease, you have thirty days to transfer all your automobile, drivers license, address in the state of Pennsylvania. I know whose responsible for that, I know its not the council, council can’t do that. I’m bringing it the council’s attention, maybe they can put pressure on somebody else who has some authority. At 2 o’clock in the morning I have kids outside screaming and hollering. It gets a little aggravating. Is there somebody, whats the word I’m looking for, in an authoritative power in this municipality, who shuts the door and turns the lights out, I’m sorry. Councilman Allar said some of these matters should be taken up with the mayor and police, have you talked to them? Mr. Tyson said I have. My address is 320 S. Main Street, what the gentleman’s address is that you are referring to? Councilman Allar said I don’t have that, but you have talked to him? Mr. Tyson said hello wall. Councilman Myers said with the kids that are yelling, I mean, pick up the phone and call 911 and call the police department. Mr. Tyson said I did in July, it took the police forty minutes to show up because of fireworks, that’s after I called them back the second time and threatened to return fire. Councilman Myers said I can understand that at the Fourth of July, because they were shooting fireworks all over the place up there. Mr. Tyson said I even gave them address of where it was coming from, sir what am I suppose to do, you
Visitors(cont.) Page 5
are a member of this committee, I am asking you, human being to human being, I’m trying to be civil, I’m trying to use the legislative powers, that is why I came down.
Councilman Myers said I was just asking you a question, I understand, we can obviously let the police department know. Mr. Tyson said I tried to call Mr. Henry, I’ve been fighting him two years in a row, as we sit in my father in law’s driveway and watch the fireworks coming from his property. I do not get a response from the lady I talk to, our business hours are nine to four thirty something like that. I take the time off my own schedule, off the clock, trying to do everything legal and legitimately. Twenty years ago, right after the Army I might not have, I have learned my grandfather passing away, Mr. Murphy, to control my German Dutch Scottish Irish temper, that is why I approached this committee tonight calmly so it doesn’t turn into a vigilantly situation. I do not want that.
I paid to have the property surveyed so I know where the property lines were. That way I can say, here’s the property, you get back on the other side of the alley where you belong.
My father in law is seventy nine years, he doesn’t have to tolerant someone else’s kids running all over the countryside, having ill regards to that property, i. e. trash in the parking area. Do you have any reasonable thing that I can do at this time? To try to alleviate some of these items. Councilman Snyder said to answer your question, we are working on the sidewalk issues, I know for a fact, that 22 notices were sent out. The way our zoning officer handles that, he first sends out a warning, after that its an automatic citations. He’s working in conjunction with the mayor, as matter of a fact, the mayor is going around tonight to get a list of repeat offenders, people who haven’t shoveled and stuff and they will be cited. Again after tonight, its going to be a $100.00 a whap, we have the same thing with people who don’t mow their yards in the summer time and everything else. To answer your question about a rumor about trash bins, yes, that is coming, that is what we were told where the trash bins are going is on private property where you’re talking about a public easement, none exists, after twenty one years a public road has not been opened and not maintained by the municipality it goes back to private ownership. At this point if you feel he is placing these things on your property and if you have had your property recently surveyed, I suggest you get an attorney and put him on notice to abate the trespass. As far as the borough is concerned, our right of way stops right off his driveway there. Mr. Tyson asked at the alley at the rear of 306 S. Elm Street? Councilman Snyder said yeah, right where that fencing is, that is where it stops, if you are involved with anything on the other side of that fence? Mr. Tyson said I’m on the lower side, now, let me bring this issue up. Something everybody can think, if I remember correctly, the reason why there is not a permanent barricade structure across there, is for emergency entrances, i.e. if it was a permanent building, there is no readily accessible entrance unless you come down or you go up through the gate area because its not black topped up through there. You’re going to let him put refuse containers in there.
That place catches fire, whose going to responsible for the fire equipment for not having access in there. Councilman Snyder said one of the reasons that we were allowing him to put these containers in there, ironically enough was because of the garbage being strewn around there because of the little garbage enclosures and people were just throwing it in there and it was being blown around. So we were trying to abate another nuisance by
Visitors(cont.) Page 6
allowing him to use. Mr. Tyson asked who is going to responsible for allowing him access in there. Councilman Snyder said access in there for what? Mr. Tyson said that would be the dumpsters, front loader. What is the noise decibel on the banging those containers to empty refuse out of there, would you consider it quiet, moderate or extremely loud. Councilman Noll said it’s a public service that is being performed under the borough’s contract. Mr. Tyson asked how is it a public service? Councilman Noll said they pay garbage fees, they have requested a dumpster in lieu of curb pick up and the reason for that was trying to consolidate the trash in a required dumpster enclosure that has a wall along all sides so that refuse is no longer up against the road. That area was chosen because the area that they have currently is not accessible to front load truck without tying in the intersection, blocking the site triangle, becoming a hazard to motorists. Mr. Tyson said becoming a safety hazard. Councilman Noll said that’s correct.
Mr. Tyson said how often is it tentatively going to be ? Councilman Noll said once a week. Mr. Tyson asked will there be odor control? Councilman Noll said unless you are going to be putting it in a sealed building with closed doors, there is no such thing as odor control. Most ordinances in municipalities do not address that. And neither does ours.
Mr. Tyson said I’m just asking, even the neighbors above me, they’ve taken whiskey bottles out of their garden already, and they’ve trying contacting Mr. Henry and they’ve had no luck. Councilman Snyder said the other issues that you are discussing, like kids being out late at night, making noise, disturbing of the peace, trespassing on your property, clearly if you were going to call 911, the issue with the fireworks, you may not like to hear my answer. They’re not going to do anything about it. This country was founded on the premise of celebrating the Fourth of July with fireworks. If you say tonight that they were up there shooting off bottle rockets, M80, I guarantee you the police would be up there rather quickly. Fourth of July and probably even New Years, I guarantee I heard no less than 100 gun shots in back yard New Year’s Eve, am I saying that is safe, do I condone it, no I do not, with that many gun shots going off, the police can not be everywhere all the time. It’s a problem. Mr. Tyson said I was out also, I had blanks, I’m sportsman not a hunter. Councilman Snyder said unfortunately if I see someone shooting a gun, I don’t know if it has a bullet in there or not but you see what I’m getting out. Mr. Tyson said yes I do, I appreciate you hearing me out. Councilman Snyder said I’m just trying to be honest with you, we try to react and change the things we can, and try to balance out everyone as much as what we can. I’m realistic, there are some thing we are not going to be help with and there are some things we can. In the instance of children being out late at night. We do have curfew ordinances and noise ordinances, don’t call the mayor, don’t call, you call 911 and say you would like to make that complaint, and they will send someone out. Again your instance with July 4th, no they won’t. Mr. Tyson asked the property owner be held accountable when its an income property? Councilman Snyder said on a noise violation, I do not know off the top of my head. Councilman Myers said I don’t think so, only because a few years ago we had a neighbor up from me that was rental property, and what ended up complaining, had some of the issues like you are saying, and couldn’t do anything with the property owner/the land lord, eventually we did get the people doing it. A camera is a great thing because I
Visitors(cont.) Page 7
caught they doing the fireworks and stuff, it just took awhile. I tried to go after the property owner, the police couldn’t do it. Councilman Snyder said off the top of my head, I know some of our ordinances do allow to go after the owner of the property, especially since we have the property maintenance. Councilman Noll said we just adopted, we had our hearing for, the property maintenance code, because we realized a lot of our ordinances were not strong enough to take care of a lot of these issues. Tonight we are going to be talking about another tool that the state of Pennsylvania has about structures and equipments, that we can use to go after buildings. The other thing that we are fortunate to have is a new state law that was passed, we’re going to be using again, municipal land use and zoning. That are a lot of tools that have come about in the last six to nine months, that we are incorporating into the borough, because we realize that some of ordinances were not strong enough to handle a lot of these things. Mr. Tyson said everybody found a catch 22 to get out of it, now its, you’ve incorporated the Commonwealth Code, it can weed out the crap. Councilman Snyder said it was very disturbing to see grass four foot high and the only thing we would do, was whack them with a $25.00 fine. People think that if your dog craps in my yard, $100.00 is justifiable. You may not think so, but the borough does. Because that’s about how much it costs us to prosecute. Mr. Tyson said its an environmental issue. Councilman Snyder said we are trying to take a lot of that stuff into account and I guarantee our noise ordinance is one of the stronger ones in the county and if you were to call under that, and complain to the police as a noise disturbance, you will get their attention. Mr. Tyson asked is that from 7AM until 10PM? Councilman Noll said just to tell you that no one is immune, I will use Sam’s property as an example, he lives to a house, you could walk out into the back yard and disappeared, because wasn’t mowed for four months, that had to be remedied, and he had a river run though the front sidewalk of his house. Mr. Tyson said that hasn’t been totally renovated yet. Councilman Noll said its in the process. Councilman Snyder said we’re working on it. Councilman Noll said that’s why we have adopted all these new ordinances and we’ve also have had multiple meetings with our zoning officer, have him go out and cite and go after people for a multiple different things. Are we going to make everyone happy? No, but we’re trying. Mr. Tyson said you can’t make everyone happy.
Councilman Myers asked while he is looking, can I have your phone number for the record. Mr. Tyson said 855-7937. Councilman Myers said thank you. Councilman Snyder said 11PM to 6AM is night time curfew. Anyone under the age is eighteen. Mr. Tyson said when school is in, there is no difference. Councilman Snyder said no. Councilman Noll said it’s a county wide ordinance, for the police, we needed a uniform code.
The other thing, with these ordinances being adopted, the police will get a copy? Councilman Snyder said yes. Councilman Noll said then they will able to cite. Mr. Tyson asked and your fines were changed? Councilman Noll said yes, because most of our fines were only $25.00. It was actually it cheaper for someone not to mow their lawn and pay the fine. Councilman Snyder said it is unlawful for radios, television sets, even yelling and shouting, engaging in hooting, hollering, whistling at any time of which to cause a noise disturbance across the property, between the hours of 9PM and 8AM, so it is
Visitors(cont.) Page 8
plainly audible across the property line, if they are on a public street its between the hours of 9PM and 8AM. Mr. Tyson said I was standing in my cellar and I could hear them over the t. v. Councilman Snyder said exactly, the tools are there, call 911. I made that as strong as it could be, mirrored off of York City, they have a pretty strong noise ordinance. Mr. Tyson said you’ve got to get them to enforce it. Councilman Snyder said if you have a problem with enforcement, then say to us, and say the police I called, Fourth of July, if you say I called this time and this time for noise complaint, and the officer never showed up or refused to do anything, then we can act on that. Councilman Allar said the Fourth of July is another issue, but in the summertime its extremely bad
Mr. Tyson said when it’s a projectile, is what they set up at the fair grounds, City Island, its coming two doors north on the west side of S. Main Street, crossing, I can feel the sawdust when I am two doors above Third. I do believe I have a legitimate complaint.
Councilman Snyder said again, we could eliminate everything. You’re not going to get the police out. Mr. Tyson said the fireworks plant off the Glen Rock interchange, you can not sell to people from Pennsylvania, they can have parties from Maryland to buy them.
Councilman Snyder asked is there anything we can help you with tonight? Mr. Tyson said I am not trying to stir up a bunch of muck, I’ve lived in the borough five years. I was here the Mother’s Day storm. The straw that broke the camel’s back, is when I heard about the refuse container. The borough is prepared for calls about being on someone else’s property. The only thing that I can see to consider, is a twelve wire enclosure, that way anything is not, I know they will not close the side, chain link fence. I know it won’t help with the permeating essence but don’t have to come up to pick up the trash all the time, the neighbor’s won’t have to drag it out of their garden. I appreciate your time and your help. I’m going to walk back up, everyone have a safe night.
Councilman Snyder asked anyone else that would like to be recognized tonight? I’m George Rubio, of Rubio Design. I’m working with Jamie and I’ve talked to Sam on the phone, briefly talked to him. I’ve doing a website for the Yoe War Memorial. The time and design and posting all the stuff, will donate . I came across that you were trying to get it updated and what not, with a little bit of help, get some online donations on there. I guess the secretary wasn’t here tonight. Councilman Snyder said no she is out sick actually. I’ll have to talk to her some other time. I just wanted to talk to you guys. Councilman Snyder said I did want to get your phone number if you don’t mind ,
475-44474. I was going to mention your name and that you are donating your time and efforts and mention Jamie’s time on redoing this on a news release, that will get more insight on publicity for your website. I’ll give your contact information to the reported. You are okay with me giving your name and number. Mr. Rubio said yes. The url site is yoememorial.com. I can show if you guys are interested what it looks like. Councilman Allar said Jamie and I are going to give a presentation to the different veterans groups. Mr. Rubio said here is my card. Councilman Tyson said thank you so much, my little version on the web does not compare, I appreciate your talent. Mr. Rubio said not only for my business, I just thought it was a great cause. When you told me about it, it was like getting hit by a car, it would be just, so great to do something like that, so. I just wanted
Visitors(cont.) Page 9
to help. I’ll give everyone my card, if you have any questions or get in contact with me for any reason. Councilman Snyder said I did have an opportunity to speak to the secretary about some of the questions that you had about a direct link for our accounts, because of not being able to check with banks for security, she would probably like have a link where it would say where to send checks to rather to have a direct link to one of the borough fund accounts. Councilman Allar said so she will have a separate account for this. Councilman Snyder said yes, just like we had with the Ron Crull memorial. Money has already come in. Councilman Allar said and the check has to be made out to Yoe Borough. Councilman Snyder said yes. Councilman Allar said while we are on that, its taken me awhile to figure this out. Remember when we had that thing as to whether or not, 401, IRS. Mr. Malesker said the 1 C3. Councilman Allar said we weren’t so we really weren’t tax deductible. Turns out we are exempt. This after, making a long story short, but after talking with the auditors, PSAB, finally after dealing with IRS, we’re listing as an exempt organization. United States or any state or political subdivision of the state, any of the subdivisions, has natural exemption applied to them. It also become a qualified organization, most organizations other than churches and governments, subscribe below apply to the IRS. We are government so we do not apply, we didn’t know this before. I have it at home. Mr. Malesker said the probably with the CS is not being registered as non profit organizations. That’s a little different that’s what the issue was. Councilman Noll said Sandy the tax exempt certificate. Councilman Allar said what she has is a non profit, I already went over this with you. She has documentation for a non profit. The other factor is a qualified organization, which we are, must issue a written statement which would make a payment that is more than $75.00. I need to get clarified on the paperwork here. However the exemption is, the organization will not have to make the statement if its one of the qualified organization on the other page. We do not even have to give out a statement. Councilman Noll said so the person does have to keep track of their check of some type for their records. Councilman Allar said they do whatever is common sense. As long as we are keeping that separate for the auditors, the check is communicated on how to make the check out, we can have it listed as a bonafide IRS
tax deduction. Councilwoman Tyson said on the website we should have it as according to listed. Councilman Allar said this is a survey that the IRS puts out. You could put in there that you can always check with your persona tax advisor. That is always a caveat,
so. Solicitor Cook said the only thing that I’d like to add to that, that there may be a certain ceiling or a certain amount, contribution that can be made during the course of the year to met the deductible. I don’t think you should indicate on there, your contribution is tax deductible, it may be. Councilman Allar said I asked Paul specifically that, he said yes. Councilman Noll said it depends if you itemize, if you take the standard deduction if you don’t have enough, it doesn’t matter. But if you itemize. Councilman Allar said it defeats the threshold for that individual. Councilman Snyder said it may or may not help it. As in your case, if you want to want to write off time and effort donated as a contribution in kind with the tax deductible. We are a tax deductible organization based on that information. Check with your own public accountant. Councilwoman Tyson asked can you add that, check with your own tax advisor. Councilman Noll said you just have to say this is a project sponsored by Yoe Borough, which is a tax exempt
Visitors (cont.) Page 10
organization, contributions may be considered tax deductible depending on your tax exempt status. Councilwoman Tyson asked that you, send the sheet to me and I’ll forward it to George. Mr. Rubio said the only thing else I might need, is Sam you have the information of the names already there. Councilman Snyder said I have earlier pictures, I have a lot of close ups for a record of all the names that are there. I think at the time I did take one picture of it. It hasn’t changed in appearance. Discussion continued on the memorial names. Councilman Allar said we want to identify other people that served in the services and forward. We don’t have any way to come up with that history without people coming in and giving us that information. If they come in keep all the names and when the served. That would be very beneficial. Councilman Snyder said thanks for all your efforts.
Attorney Cook said we’ve taken care of the ordinance part. Councilman Snyder said this is one that should have been taken care of in January but I wasn’t here.
Councilman Snyder said we have Yoe Borough Resolution 2011-01, adopting the new fees for the subdivision/land development plan reviews for the $150.00 per hour for legal fees for subdivision and of course all the pursuant engineering fees and I updated them with the latest figures that were provided by C. S. Davidson at the end of December. A motion to resolve Resolution 2011-01 was made by Councilman Noll. The motion was seconded by Councilman Allar. All in favor. Councilman Snyder said so be it resolved.
Councilman Noll said that will be one that isn’t ordinance but a resolution. Councilman Snyder said this is Resolution 2011-01. And that is ordinance 2011-01. The way they use to do, 1 is the way it came up, the ordinance was 1, resolution was 2 and then there may be another resolution that was 3, then an ordinance was 4. It was confusing.
Attorney Cook said next is the Springettsbury Township Ordinances, sewer issues. There is only two parts to it. In their letter they requested adoption of their most update ordinance which is 2010-08. And then also addressing 03-01. 03-01 is addressed in the code of ordinances that was just passed, so that issue is resolved. But 2010-08, update some terms and language. We can schedule that for adoption at the next meeting. The only difference between the one that is proposed and what will be passed at that point would be the municipality name would be changed and the section would be changed to correspond with the ordinance that was just passed. A motion was made by Councilwoman Tyson to have the solicitor to proceed with advertising and making those modification to bring ordinance 02 to the table next month. The motion was seconded by Councilman Allar. All in favor. Councilman Snyder said motion carried. And if you want to do a quick email to the contact for Springetts, because they were requesting that we have this done by February 11th. Councilman Noll said I think they also requested to see a copy of our ordinance. Attorney Cook said their biggest concern was that we are working
Solicitor’s Report(cont.) Page 11
on it and the big ordinance which was already contained in the ordinance that we just adopted so.
Attorney Cook said on the park lease agreement. You all should have copies of the most recent draft there were some changes since the last meeting. Paragraph seven that it should be fifteen minutes before the time listed in Paragraph one. Also did add, paragraph thirteen, then the subsequent paragraphs were renumbered, involving cancellations. Any comments, questions, changes? Councilman Noll said I have some additional ones I can run through these quick: under part 3, it talks about the park may not be used by renters,
for any purposes other those that would be associated. I would like also put in there, about forfeiture of the deposit if they have to void to the agreement of that. I have a note on that, that it doesn’t list what the amount of the deposit is, so there should be a line item, because we talk about returning deposits. Have an open mind, that a person can specify. So that and facility rental, and forfeiture of all rental fees. Part number 4 I put in the rental per day because it doesn’t specify a time period. Part 6 A, I add the rest rooms because its an independent structure. I did the same thing in part B and the same thing part C. Also in part C, I put at the bottom a new sentence, if this removal and cleaning is not completed, the borough will complete this and give a charge back fee to the renter.
Since Dana is going to have to do it anyway, we should charge back fees when its appropriate. Last page, page 12, if the renter is a non profit, charitable, I added the sentence, this usage will be subject to the availability of the park and its rental areas.
For Part 13, we had park rental fee must be paid in full per the rental agreement and the rental of the park and the date held recognized by the borough. I would add that in there.
It says in the event of cancellations, a partial refund of $100.00. So we don’t have change it all the time, I put 2/3 rd’s of the cost of park rental fee. That will fluctuant depending on what the park rental fee is at the time. Those of the changes I proposed. Councilman Snyder said what you proposed in item 4, as for the fee schedule per day, that doesn’t need taken care in the agreement. Because the lease agreement is going to specify the lease time, I think probably what you are getting at, what we charge on a daily basis and that is taken care of in our fee resolution. Which is per rental, that issue is already taken care of. Councilman Noll said we could say per the current Yoe Borough Fee Resolution.
Councilman Snyder said it says the rental of the park shall be set by the fee schedule.
Attorney Cook said on the other sub paragraph, damage to the park, pavilion, any structure thereof. Which would include the bathroom facilities. Discussion continued.
Attorney Cook said if this rental agreement is executed within the ninety days of the rental period then payment is included. Discussion continued. Councilman Snyder said with those proposed changes, I thought it was ready to be adopted tonight. I didn’t realize that it wasn’t ready for tonight. Councilman Noll said Gail did review this. Councilman Snyder asked if there is a consensus of council to discuss changes, for the attorney to make them, send them on between Seth or myself, we’ll just give this to the secretary to distribute because I know the Park Rental Coordinator is waiting on this, so we aren’t waiting another month. If you can have that back to us by the end of the week.
Solicitor’s Report(cont.) Page 12
Attorney Cook said quiet title action has been filed with the Sheriff’s Department for service. Proposals are to have a time in the day and night to have them come to borough office to be served, or just to knock on their door and serve them that way. Councilman Snyder said by the time we send a notice, they can go out and serve them. Attorney Cook said they can just go and serve it. Once the Sheriff’s Office serves, on or about a few days of others, they have twenty days from the day they are served to respond. If half get served on Monday, then the second half the next Monday, two twenty days going. Once their twenty day period has expired, then you have to give them notice of default and if they don’t respond. Hopefully that will be the case. If no one responds, then it belongs to the borough. The notice of default has to go out by Sheriff also, usually we do it first class and certified too. Councilman Allar said there is one homeowner won’t be there when they serve, if you need more information about where he is, let me know. Attorney Cook said we have to do a separate service for each person, Sheriff’s Dept. has to document when the serve and where. I can look at that, I think they took that into consideration. At least one individual listed at missing their physical address. Discussion continued.
Attorney Cook said on 62 N. Main Street, yesterday we received the report from Norm Strenger. You all get a copy of that, a draft. At this point a letter will go out tomorrow,
if you have any questions about that. Councilman Noll said we had Code Administrators come out, at a cost of $150.00 to look at the property. He is 3.84 of the State Code, unsafe structure and equipment that he is using. Its something we can use through our building code official and have them to certify the building is unsafe. He does have the ability to do that. I’ll pass that if anyone wants to read that section. Councilman Snyder said the letter for enforcement, going out under your office or Dan. Attorney Cook said our office. Councilman Snyder said the ordinance is dated one date, the notice of inspection is pre date that, is that an issue. Attorney Cook said its not an issue. Councilman Allar said that’s two out of three, the ordinance that we passed tonight, we can operate off of that. The third one itself, its appearance. Still concerned, people coming through Yoe, stopping at the stop light, looking over. We couldn’t do it under the original one, my understanding is that we can do that now. Send those letters, service and all the costs involved, shouldn’t we be doing that too. Attorney Cook said yes, I guess the question is, do you want it to come from Dan Shaw or our office. Councilman Noll said I think it should come from Dan and be kept as a separate issue. Dan should be able to take the maintenance code. Councilman Snyder said everyone got a copy from online. Attorney Cook said he will talk to Mr. Shaw about that. Councilman Snyder said when you send that letter out, make a note to talk to Dan to go over the enforcement, on the structure under the new ordinance. Councilman Allar asked Attorney Cook to make sure the letter from Dan is covered and legally sufficient. Attorney Cook said I’ll be doing the letter about the shed and tree and Dan will be doing the one on the cosmetic aspect.
I can shoot him a form. Councilman Allar said you can take the wording right out of the ordinance.
Solicitor’s Report(cont.) Page 13
Councilman Snyder said the information that was requested from PENN DOT on standards and regulations on banners, etc. I looked over that, there is nothing to do at this time. We do have a resolution in place. Our resolution, we passed one a long time ago.
1997-00. That was already in existence, so that keeps in compliance for their original requests. If someone requests in the future, then we need to pass another resolution to put up their individual banner. Its just a FYI for the file.
Councilman Snyder said there is a boundary agreement with the County, its an agreement to reduce the burden local governments to avoid duplication efforts, its to allow the County to do the work for the US Census Bureau and Boundary and Annexation Surveys. We need to sign that if we want to county to do that, or if we want to continue to do it ourselves. We aren’t going to change our boundaries. Councilman Noll said I talked at the Municipal Managers meeting, every municipality is going to sign it, you still are going to have the opportunity to view those changes. Dedicate someone from the staff to do that, it’s a smart thing to do. A motion was made by Councilman Noll to sign the boundary and annexation survey consolidation agreement. The motion was seconded by
Councilman Howett. All in favor. Councilman Snyder said motion carried.
Councilman Noll said we had a meeting with Growing Greener, they came down to go over the $15,000.00 grant, to fill everything out. The agreement is for the wetlands project, in the amount of $15400.00. It gives us a total of $30,400.00 to do that project. Sandy, Tom, Jake and I were there. They went through the hole application form. Jake is taken care of the paperwork. Councilman Allar said to complete the grant, DEP needs confirmation of the matching money. We got a letter from Yoe Ambulance. We do not submit the paperwork unless this attached. Copy of the letter and check. DEP has to have this by the 21st. The drop dead date is February 18, 2011. Have Sandy call me if the paperwork is not ready by the 18th. Councilman Noll said we have to work out the conservation easement agreement with the Township, that will have to be put together. Councilman Allar has contacted Rettew. A motion was made to sign the DEP Grant agreement by Councilman Noll. The motion was seconded by Councilman Allar. All in favor. Councilman Snyder said motion carried.
Councilman Noll said the State of Pennsylvania at the end of legislation of 2010, passed Act 90, it has to do with urban redevelopment/neighbor blight reclamation/revitilazation act. Part of that talks about permits and how they are issued and people pay municipal fees. Its something we can use to deny permits, if they don’t pay their sewer bill, water bill, whatever municipal fee it is, we do not have to issue a permit. We have to come up with some kind of structure, to check when people come in, I think its any kind of permit. Some municipalities are checking to see how far they can push it, if its any fee, or if just public utility type fee. Some people have rec fees. I have a copy of it here, I can copy it.
Councilman Allar added you may want to ask Dan if he is aware of it. Copy of it for him.
Councilwoman Coble Tyson is going to attend a webinar on this matter. You have to have a projected plan for your community. To improve and enhance your community.
Solicitor’s Report(cont.) Page 14
Do we have a five or ten year plan? Councilman Allar said we don’t but we have a comp plan. Councilman Coble Tyson said they all go hand and hand but it is very important.
Discussion continued. Councilwoman Coble Tyson is waiting for ordinances from Columbia Borough on how they are working on Act 90. Discussion continued. Attorney Cook saw the promotional material on that seminar. The date didn’t fit into my schedule.
Councilwoman Coble Tyson went to the first part, the next part is going to be a webinar, then in March there is another part. Discussion continued. Councilman Snyder said the first step is to contact Dan, to find out how Red Lion is implementing this. Then we can see from him, what we need to upgrade. We only get sewer quarterly reports, perhaps we need it monthly. Councilman Noll said I’ll call Dan and Code Administrators. I’ll report back next month.
Mr. Malesker said the engineer for Orchard Hills Vista has asked that the plans be tabled again. Councilman Snyder said this has been on our agenda since July or June. We issued comments for defiencies that Yoe Borough has on this plan. We haven’t received anything communication that they are working to correct any of these defiencies. In all fairness to the client on this particular subdivision, if Yoe Borough has an issue that we know we have to deny a plan based on how it was presented to us, why allow them the façade of going through and getting the approval of an adjoining municipality only to have the plan denied by our municipality. Councilman Noll said its well beyond the ninety days, what is the procedure can we vote tonight to deny it or do we have to give notice of denial. Mr. Malesker said typically what’s done, they are given an opportunity to reply, plenty of time, if you do not submit revised plans by next meeting, they will be denied. Typically what’s done, but so much time has elapsed that you can deny them now. Its up to you. Councilman Noll asked from an engineer’s standpoint it doesn’t hurt us to deny it right out. Mr. Malesker said they have had well beyond the ninety days.
Discussion continued. A motion was made by Councilman Noll to deny the plan and have the engineer write a letter to the builder. The motion was seconded by Councilwoman Coble Tyson. All in favor. Councilman Snyder said plan is denied.
And you want to make appropriate notification to York County Planning, because they were tabling again tonight. Mr. Malesker said I’ll copy everyone.
Mr. Malesker said onto the flood impoundment restoration project. York County Conservation did visit the sight on December 28, 2010. They did send out a report and the borough was copied. They did say that the sight was adequately stabilized and that Flyway did trench in the erosion control matting that they have been asking them to do since July. So therefore Flyway has requested their final payment however in, the report, he does say, in the areas between the stream and spillway has been adequately stabilized with grass, the erosion control blanket remains installed on the interior base and slope.
Area has become adequately stabilized. Then under complaint one, the district recommends monitoring the sight throughout the winter to ensure the stabilization
Engineer’s Report(cont.) Page 15
remains adequate, inspect in the spring. What we told them, we weren’t going to allow payment until Conservation closes out the permit. They’re saying its stabilized but they are keeping the permit open. I did bring the application for payment for discussion. If its seventy percent stabilized its considered adequate, however the permit isn’t technically closed out. Do you want to wait until its officially closed out? We can tell Flyway, yes its stabilized, if something happens you still have their performance bond. Councilman Noll said wait until the permit is closed out, we went this far. If you can make a motion to that affect. A motion was made by Councilman Noll that you won’t entertain the final application for payment until the conservation district closes out the permit. The motion was seconded by Councilman Allar. All in favor. Councilman Snyder said motion carried. Mr. Malesker said I’ll pass that onto Flyway. There is a change order with that, we don’t need to do anything now. We had talked about this at one of the on sight meetings, that Conservation District required some additional erosion control blanked, we weren’t showing it on top of the birm typically because it was flat surface it wasn’t needed, they had them actually had them install it along the stream bank, areas that we didn’t have it shown on the plans so, that’s why. We talked about it on sight when DEP was there, that we could get additional grant agreement money to increase the grant amount to cover this. We could close out, this cost, by the Growing Greener grant. Councilman Noll said we can wait for the Growing Greener money. Mr. Malesker said actually to do the project completion, you need to issue the final payment to the contractor, then you get the final ten percent from the Growing Greener. Councilman Snyder asked so we can still increase the contract? Mr. Malesker said yes. You can’t close out the Growing Greener grant until final payment. You could approve the change order now, it doesn’t mean anything because you are not issuing the final payment.
Its up to you to do that, we’ll just have that for the records. We had two rock filters on the plan, they only used one, since they used only one in their method of construction.
Net change is $j956.50. Councilman Snyder said the request of payment you made tonight, it would include this. Mr. Malesker said yes. A motion was made by Councilman Noll to approve the change order 3 to Flyway. The motion was seconded by Councilman Howett. All in favor. Councilman Snyder said motion carried. Mr. Malesker said we were talking about scheduling a walk through, Tom got back to me with some dates from Jake,
Those dates are March 2, 3, 4. He is available. Councilman Allar said I think anytime.
Are there any other times, Seth or Tom? Councilman Noll said at this point I am good all days. Mr. Malesker will contact everyone when he makes the appointment with Flyway.
See if we can tentatively schedule something for March 3rd.
Mr. Malesker said we already discussed the wetland mitigation. Councilman Allar said Seth is staying close to Mr. Miller. We have an important one piece of the plan, we should be able to have a choice in the contractors. I have lab reports of what is coming down Mill Creek, you should have copies. If you look at this, this LDL, its not like a blood test. That is the reporting limits, it can only test to that limit, its not a good thing, its not a bad thing. Discussion continued. This report goes back to the landfill and the
landfill has their standard. I could not find out from Analytical Labs, because every
Engineer’s Report(cont.) Page 16
landfill has a different standard. Even that changes from time to time. So I’m going to turn this to Barry. Councilman Myers said I need some letterhead, I have to do a letter.
Mr. Malesker said I forwarded email on the H2O Grant application. No decision was made at the January meeting, next meeting is March 16. We’ll just have to wait on that.
I do have a draft copy, final report for the flood control for the Growing Greener, this is contigent on the final payment, so it can’t be signed yet. If you want to see a draft, I can leave a copy here.
Mr. Malesker said I did want to check on the maintenance on the retention basin, its really full, it can get a point that the flow gets around there. Councilman Myers said once we get this solved with the landfill, then we can proceed on. Its Jake that is going to do it.
Councilman Snyder said is there any reason that was can used that sight, that Jason had proposed, the dump when we were just dredging the dam, somewhere in Red Lion. He had another sight planned, then you said Red Lion may be able to take some of this dirt so we didn’t use that sight. He had another approved sight, that caused us to get another E & S plan because Red Lion wasn’t approved. I call it the Rexroth property. Mr. Malesker said I don’t know if that is still available. Just to get this first dredging. I think he said there was a plan. Councilman Noll said as long as there is an E & S plan and is willing to take us on. Councilman Snyder said I was thinking for one or two dumps. Councilman Allar said I have no problem with calling Red Lion. Councilman Myers said if he makes that phone call it could be real quick. Councilman Noll said it’s a matter of paperwork.
Councilman Snyder said I don’t want to lose everything we’ve done. That wouldn’t take long. Councilman Myers said even if we do get okayed over there, doesn’t mean we have to take it over there. I like that Plan B. Councilman Noll asked is it a sight its legal to dump on. Councilman Snyder said that’s something that Steve can check with Jason on.
Councilman Noll said I’m still talking about the ball field, still have the E & S stuff.
Mr. Malesker said I think they closed the permit out, I don’t know if all the erosion control measures are still there. Councilman Myers said they were there a month or two ago, when they had the fire over there. Discussion continued and the idea was dropped.
Councilman Noll said we are getting an as built done, they have the manhole in and the head, and put out the filter pipe. We actually found the spring head. They put collector pipes out there. Fitz and Smith has the head taken care of, and the feeder pipes. They would have been finished but we had four to five days of snow. Last time I talked to Fitz and Smith, they are going to try to get that in today or tomorrow. Hopefully we only got three or four days of work to do. They found a trough that was, it had a lid on top of it, I didn’t get to see it personally. Mr. Malesker asked do you know if water was still in there, piping it from the other one? Councilman Noll said once they got everything tied it, it was charged back in to the sump hole that they created, when they pumped that out, there wasn’t any water coming out at the pipe at the bottom, so. It appears that we caught everything, we need to catch one more pipe as we get closer, that was going out unto street. We think we’ve got everything.
Maintenance Report Page 17
Councilman Snyder said it was about snow/ice removal. I do want to comment, Dana has been doing an awesome job with snow removal. I received three compliments from outsiders, the surrounding areas were horrible but when they got here the roads were clear. Councilman Myers said he was out cleaning drains. Councilman Snyder said big kudos to Dana.
Zoning Officer’s Report
Councilman Noll said the only thing in the folder were zoning permits that were issued for 2010. Permit value of $216,445.00.
Councilman Snyder said the other issues were discussed under Solicitor’s report with 62 Main Street.
Emergency Management Report
Councilman Snyder said snow emergency was declared Wednesday January 26, 2011 until 6PM on January 27, 2011. I thought everything went well. There were some cars that were in the way.
Councilman Snyder said just because we are the season of snow emergency, reminder on their ISO trainings for new council members. Now with being Vice President of Council you need extra ISO training and Wendy you are a new member. I don’t know who did.
Councilwoman Coble Tyson asked do they provide anything? Councilman Snyder said they should provide you a certificate. When you get those certificates make sure a copy is put on file with the borough secretary. If we have an emergency management action, and we get federal reimbursement, the only way we are going to get it is if we have everyone up to date. I can’t give you more information on that, John would be the contact. You can do it online. There was one you could go to. This one you do online.
Mayor and Police Report
Councilman Snyder said John was called away for work at the school. To bring to everyone’s attention that we did receive a letter that York Area Regional Police Association is now in negotiation for their contract for a period beginning January 1, 2012. The bargaining committee will be made up of six police officer and they are willing to meet to discuss issues.
Councilman Snyder said Mayor Sanford said he wrote a letter to the property owner on Pennsylvania Avenue where the car. There is still going to be issues there while they moved it Monday for trash, the car is back. He did say he was out with Dana, and they went over the original ordinance, they measured. According to their measurements they
Mayor and Police Report(cont.) Page 18
are half on private property and half in the right of way. So. If it does continue to be a problem, depending what person is driving larger fire apparatus, council may want to consider no parking. If they are in the public right of way, you can go to the police and see about enforcement that way. Councilman Snyder said we adopted the upper and lower side of E. Pennsylvania Avenue down to the borough bridge. We allowed permission for that one person to put a shed at the very edge. When PENN DOT came through to do their assessment, you can’t no longer open that up as a thoroughfare, you lost that part of the street. Technically we never abandoned it. We did adopt it. The problem is we never adopted W. Pennsylvania Avenue the way it is now. Discussion continued.
Councilman Snyder said we received a complaint that there is a depression at the alley, Newton. Mayor Sanford looked into that with Dana, and it does appear that there is a depression around the inlet on the upper side of that alley. There is some sort of depression from the culvert from one side to the other. They’re not sure what is going on there. I told him, that with this H2O thing going on, that is earmarked to get fixed. Just heard we don’t know when we are going to hear about that, so its being addressed, we know about it. If this continues to be a problem, and we don’t know the status of this H2O, maybe we can go up there and top a coat over it. Not Newton, Cherry. Behind, comes from that swale up on Elm Street. Its Cherry.
Councilman Snyder said everyone has received copies of the statements for bank, CD’s that she presented for December 31, 2010. I will remind everyone council that its their fiduciary duty to keep a watch eye over the accounts and our treasurer.
Councilman Snyder said York County Municipal Administrators Association from December 9th, 2010, that Seth attended. Everyone please take note that August 25th that meeting is going to be held at the Yoe Borough Park for a picnic. Gail has already been called to reserve that date.
Councilman Snyder said we received notice from the York Adams Tax Bureau for the amount for the earned income for 2010, for $78,810.00. Which we budgeted $75,000.00. Which is why we had to drop that down.
Councilman Snyder said we received the 2010 annual report for the Yoe Ambulance Club. They are looking at presenting a formal annual report late in February. They responded to 4,045 calls, 74 were in Yoe Borough. 52 required the advanced life support. Kudos to Yoe Ambulance Club. I do want to commend Yoe Ambulance on their fore thought to get advanced life support to the area because it just goes to show how much that was needed.
Secretary-Treasurer Report(cont.) Page 19
Councilman Snyder said the auditors will be here February 1, 9, 11, 2011. She did say she will be making up her work over the weekend, so if you need her leave her a note.
A motion was made by Councilwoman Tyson to appoint Tana Bentzel to the vacancy on the Yoe Borough Sewer Authority effective February 1, 2011. The motion was seconded by Councilman Allar. All in favor. Councilman Snyder said motion carried.
Councilman Snyder said the secretary sent out the ethics statement, so make sure, in with your packet. So there is May 1st deadline. I’ll remind everybody, like Jamie for one,
myself and Tom, that has to run for election. Only Jamie, she has to do it, was filling in for Dave. To run for re-election you need to file that with your petition, to get on the ballot, the white copy goes to the municipality, the yellow one needs to be filed with your nominating petition. Petitions can be picked up at the Voter’s Election in the basement of the old courthouse by February 14, 2011. Ten registered voters of the same party, you can ask for a street list.
Executive Session at 9:54PM
A motion was made by Councilman Howett to go into executive session at 9:54PM. The motion was seconded by Councilwoman Tyson. All in favor.
Reconvening of Regular meeting at 10:22PM
Councilman Snyder said we are reconvening the regular council meeting. Let the minutes reflect that we discussed personnel issues, no decision is to be made at this point.
Unfinished Business (cont.)
Councilman Noll said to make note, if we decide to use liquid fuels, we will need to have it competitively bid. If we want to go with co-stars, its in March, we have to have stuff in.
A lot of municipalities they have been promised and its not been coming in. Municipal level they have had used the co star system. Whoever the providers were having trouble getting the material. They had been promised deliveries. Newberry and Manchester and Dover were ones. I just caution you, they were having trouble. It was only four or five dollars more a ton to buy it outside the costars. Discussion continued. Councilman Noll said since we put salt in as a line item on the budget, we can buy it from anyone. We need to be on that contract by March 15th with costars. Councilman Snyder asked if we sign on do we have to take it. Councilman Myers said yes, they have to go out and buy the salt too. Councilman Snyder said Dana wanted to fill the bins up, and use liquid fuels to buy it, that could fall under that ratio, if we use liquid fuels we have to get three quotes. Councilman Myers said if you buy under costars, you don’t have to do that, because if
Unfinished Business(cont.) Page 20
falls under that. Councilman Noll said the date is in the middle of March. Councilman Snyder said if you want to bring information back from the county, we need to have agreements here in March, to sign the agreements. We can just go out and bid ourself.
If we go to Tri Boro, they would give us better prices, they buy thousands of tons to our hundreds of tons, but you don’t know. You are only talking $2.00 a ton, its only $200.00
more, I’d rather pay that $200.00 and only get it when I need it. Councilman Noll said that is the only thing with winter, you don’t know how much you will use. Councilman Snyder said you can bring that next month Barry and send a copy of the agreement, ideas of prices, what the criteria is. Councilman Myers said she finds out how many municipalities want in and how many tons you want, you tell her that and she tallies it up and then she’ll go out for bid. She will be able to tell me how much it is this year. It’s a couple bucks either way. Councilman Snyder said at least find out the criteria. Discussion continued.
Councilman Snyder asked any more unfinished or new business?
Councilman Allar asked said in your packet there was a memo from Connie. On the 2010 taxes, the last line, total of all monies to Yoe Borough in 2010 was $89,253.52, is down $9130.63 from 2009. Councilman Snyder said its not helping that these apartment buildings are going in and getting reassessed. That hurts. Discussion continued.
Payment of Bills
A motion was made bye Councilman Howett to pay the bills as presented. The motion was seconded by Councilman Allar. All in favor. Councilman Snyder said bills are paid.
A motion was made Councilwoman Tyson to adjourn the meeting. The motion was seconded by Councilman Snyder. All in favor.
