Workshop, April 3, 2014


Workshop Meeting of the Ohio Town Board was held on Thursday April 3, 2014 at 6:00 PM at the Town Office Building to discuss ATV TRAILS


The following Officials were present:

Supervisor: Scott Bagetis

Town Clerk: Sandra Gates

Councilmembers: Gordon Roark, Ed Luther and Jason Maher Absent: George Lawson

Also present: Attorney for the Town Karen Mowers and Codes Enforcement Officer Jeff Greene


The meeting was called to order by Supervisor Bagetis at 6:00 PM.


The Pledge of Alligiance was said by all.


Attorney Mowers gave board members copies of the New York State Vehicle and Traffic Law §2405 and the State Environmental Quality Review Act (SEQR)

Supervisor Bagetis gave board members a rough draft copy of a map that showed the town roads that may be opened to ATV’s.


Board members discussed the law of opening a town road to ATV’s. The use of the road is necessary (otherwise impossible) to provide access to an area or a trail and that such area or trail is adjacent to the road.


Supervisor Bagetis will visit all the roads that are on the map to make sure it is a valid road to be opened and to fill out the Environmental Assessment Form, for the State Environmental Quality Review Act.


Supervisor Bagetis will make a new map of the roads involved to give to board members to review again.


Councilmember Roark made a motion to adjourn at 7:20 PM, second by Councilmember Maher. So carried.
