Attorney Glass explained that this hearing was proceeded by two public informational meetings regarding a proposed pilot program to include in the Village’s dock program the public land being used by the neighborhood.  It was also proceeded by the November 24th, 2020 Board meeting in which Trustee Bencivenga presented his letter to the Board, recommending that the Mayhew Dock Pilot Program be made permanent.  The Board in turn passed a resolution to accept this recommendation and also passed a resolution to set the fee for Mayhew docking.

This Local Law is to codify these changes and establish certain rules/conditions for the use of the slips in this location, as this location is different than other existing dock spaces in the Village.  This law also addresses certain sections of the code that are no longer applicable, which have nothing to do with Mayhew Docking.


Mayor Adams commented that after the 14-day period allotted for comments, she would like to schedule a Zoom meeting for residents originally involved in the meetings for the pilot program, to answer any questions and clarify any concerns they may have.


On the motion of Trustee Seibert, seconded by Trustee Bencivenga and unanimously carried, it was


RESOLVED to reserve decision.


Comments regarding this proposed Local Law were received from the following residents:


Michael & Joan Byrne, 17 Mayhew Avenue

Paul Costello, 71 Mayhew Avenue

Frank Galante, 45 Mayhew Avenue

Fred & Maria Koopman, 41 Wilson Drive

Jeffrey & Carol Schwager, 9 Mayhew Avenue

Barbara & Shawn Williams, 21 Mayhew Avenue

Evelyn & Dylan Stephens, 48 Wilson Drive


On the motion of Trustee Bencivenga, seconded by Trustee Seibert and unanimously carried, the meeting adjourned at 7:20 p.m.
