Taxi will appeal order to remove fuel tanks

Keuka Taxi owners John and Teresa Vivier say they plan to appeal a recent decision by the village’s Zoning Board of Appeals about their place of business.

On Sept. 25, the ZBA denied the business’s application for a variance to permit two fuel tanks that have been at their business location — 246 East Elm St.— since the spring of 2016.

The two tanks contain gasoline and diesel fuel for the vehicles operated by the company which moved to East Elm Street after receiving a variance to operate the business in the residential district April 26, 2016.

Monday (Oct. 2), the Viviers received a letter from Penn Yan Village Code Enforcement Officer Bruce Lyon informing them that they must remove the tanks by Friday, Oct. 6 (seven days from the date of the letter — Sept. 29).

“It’s like they don’t want us here,” said Teresa Monday.
