Town Board to authorize audit of Casella 2018 landfill payments

The town receives $1.7 to $1.9 million a year for hosting the Ontario County Landfill.

Tuesday, the Town Board will authorize an independent audit of the 2018 payments from Casella Waste Services, operator of the 389-acre landfill on Routes 5&20, to make sure they correspond with the amount of solid waste disposed of at the landfill last year.

Typically, there is a very small adjustment to be made. The landfill revenue eliminates the need for a town tax levy and helps pay down the town’s county tax levy share.

A representative from Casella also is scheduled to make a report on landfill operations.

The board will also conduct a public hearing on Local Law 1 of 2019, a proposed law to allow the town’s deputy highway superintendent to reside in an adjoining town.

Later, the agenda includes a motion to adopt the local law and to then appoint a new deputy highway superintendent who lives in the adjoining town of Gorham.

In other action, the board will receive a report from Supervisor Andrew Wickham on the status of a new business, Sweet Acre Creamery on Routes 5&20, and appoint David Patrick Jr. to replace the resigned Mary Bodine on the Planning Board.
