Village Agenda: Cell Phone Tower, Audit Review Services

Monday's Village Board of Trustees meeting agenda attached.

Cell phone tower installation, audit review services and amending houseboat code is on the agenda for Monday's Village Board of Trustees meeting, which will take place at at 7:30 p.m.

Under Trustee William Hilton's portion of the agenda is a resolution to authorize Mayor Paul Pontieri to enter a lease with Elite Towers, LP for the placement of a cell phone tower behind the Parks and Recreation Headquarters in Shorefront Park, subject to Zoning and Planning Board approval and a lease approved by Village Attorney Brian Egan. 

Also on the agenda under the Mayor's portion is to request approval from the baord to authorize Pontieri to execuite a contract with Cullen & Danowski, LLP to provide audit review services for the Village inclusive of Village Justice Court in an amount not to exceed $28,000.

A public hearing will also take place to request approval to amend Chapter 422 of Village Code to prohibit the use of houseboats, which trustee Tom Ferb previously told Patch is to fix a typo within Village Code. Ferb also said at the most recent Village Board meeting that the code's current definition of a houseboat is defective and it needs to be re-defined. He also said that houseboats were previously banned in 1983 and 1987 due in part to pollution dumped by them during that time period. Pontieri said at that meeting that this is not about houseboats that are purchased for living in.

The full agenda is attached in the PDF section to this post.

2 cell phone towers within the village seems like a lot, is that the norm?

Hello, please read the agenda for today's Village Board meeting. More spending, more hiring ,more contracts,more fees waiving,more special permits for some, more power to Pontieri. How can we stop it?

Would you rather have the Village of Patchogue look like it did ten years ago ? If you don't like the job the mayor or board is doing, then run for a seat. The Mayor is doing a great job. Keep up the good work Mayor Pontieri

.Jerry Coppola With your review of the requested approval to amend Chapter 422 of Village Code to prohibit the use of houseboats, I think what you are trying to do is prohibit "live aboards". Should that be your desire I suggest you change the wording and replace the word "houseboats" with "live aboards". I own a houseboat which I use during the summer and place it on dry dock (land) in the off season. I do not "live aboard" at any time during the course of the year, the boat is not used as a home. I use my houseboat the same way most of the other boat owners docked along the Patchogue River utilize their boats. That being said why should houseboats be prohibited from the waters within the Village of Patchogue if they are being used in the same method as 99% of all the other boats? Please reconsider the Village Code wording to prevent having to revisit this issue when you find you have not accomplished what I believe you are trying to accomplish, and cause me to leave a tax paying marina within the Village of Patchogue
