RESOLUTIONS (TITLES ATTACHED)

No. 179 (Resolution endorsing the concept of completing a County Office Building Asbestos Abatement Project) – Mr. Stead explained that there are currently no quotes or bids at this time which is why the title is “endorsing the concept”.

No. 227 (Resolution Appointing David C. Rackmyre, Jr. to the Fulton County Planning
Board):
Supervisor Lauria advised that the Fulton County Planning Board is in need of another member and would like to see the vacancy filled.


No. 231 (Resolution Accepting Empire State Development Grant to Assist in funding the
Hales Mills Wastewater Treatment System Project (SMART Waters – 2018 Capital Plan)
: Mr.
Stead advised that the Inter-Municipal Agreement with the Village of Broadalbin has been
signed and approved by the Village. He stated that this agreement is an instrumental piece in the SMART Waters project.

A motion was offered by Supervisor Fagan, seconded by Supervisor Callery and unanimously
carried to waive the Rules of Order to take action on Late Resolutions 254 through 256.

No. 255 (Resolution Authorizing 2018 Community Development Block Grant Application to the NYS Office of Community Renewal to Operate a Fulton County Micro-Enterprise Grant Program and Setting Date of a Public Hearing regarding said Application): Mr. Stead stated that HUD Applications are due in late July and public hearings are required for all applications. Therefore, this Resolution had to be added to the Late Agenda for this month’s meeting in order to meet the necessary requirements. Supervisor Fagan stated that this is a very successful program; however, it is unfortunate that no residents in Fulton County received any funding last year.

Mr. Stead advised that there is a meeting for the Johnson Hall State Historic Site Master Plan this evening and he plans on speaking at the public hearing that is being held at Johnstown High School to encourage New York State Parks Recreation and Historic Preservation to add replicas of historic buildings that were used during the mid to late 1700’s to the site.

Chairman Groff opened the Public Hearing to receive comments regarding the request to Include Additional Property Within the Town of Johnstown in Agricultural District No. 1 in Fulton County at 1:30 p.m.

Dean MacVean, Norboro Road, Johnstown: Mr. MacVean asked the Board if the Zoning Board is planning to make said property on Norboro Road in the Town of Johnstown “non-residential”.

Mr. Stead stated that this process has nothing to do with zoning. Supervisor Fagan stated this
process is beneficial for farmers because they can get help from the State if their property is
added to Fulton County Agricultural District No. 1. Supervisor Fagan advised that said property owner would gain protection from the State by being added to Agricultural District No. 1. Mr. MacVean asked if it said property was developed into residential property, would that require zoning changes. Supervisor Fagan stated that any changes regarding zoning laws would have to go through the Town of Johnstown, not through the County. Mr. MacVean thanked the Board for its time.

Chairman Groff called for a Recess at 1:37 p.m.

Chairman Groff asked if there were any other members of the public who wished to make
comments regarding the requests to include additional property within the Town of Johnstown in Agricultural District No. 1 in Fulton County. There being no other interested speakers,
