Motion to approve the minutes of the April 20, 2009 meeting by Barry Pritchard.
2nd – Lee Phillips. Carried
Corrections: “Red Hot’s” changed to “Oswego Hot’s.” Steve Greene suggested that “of Appeals” to be taken off, should read “Planning Board.”
Craig Zogby of United Group – project going with an on-site waste treatment plant. They were unable to connect to the City of Oswego sewage system. There willl be an out-building but no change in Site Plan. As far as the Planning Board the location and building will be architecturally compatible. It will be a pad mounted, membrane/chemical system. Requires normal maintenance. They will hire either a Maintenance Manager or contract out. Waste will be hauled off-site. Location will be south side of property, sewer lines, gravity feed.
Jeff Boyer asked if plant would be contained within the building?
Craig – yes, within the building.
Barry Pritchard – any thought to hooking into the City lines?
Craig – when up and running, it will be a permanent system. 30,000-40,000 gallons/day, larger than necessary. Treated waste goes from building into stream, can be used for irrigation, etc. Not for drinking. DEC dictates everything pertaining to the system. They work with the County.
Steve Greene – no change in footprint. Does not need to be re-visited, no Public Hearing. DEC has talked to engineers and Albany. They will recommend what is needed. All proposals have previously been approved by the Planning Board.
Barry Pritchard – motion for on-site Waste Treatment Plant by United Group and to forward all information to Barton and Logjudice, P.C. for approval, and application. Permit approval from DEC.
Discussion: Public – what happens if it needs maintenance?
Craig – not quite sure of contingency plan. Testing done on a weekly basis. United Group will apply for permit for cleaning and gradation approval at their risk.
Greg Herrmann – when the Town has a problem, they call in someone to fix it.
2nd – Lee Phillips. Carried (Jeff Boyer, yes; Lee Phillips, yes; Barry Pritchard, yes; Richard Tesoriero, yes)
New Business - none
