Austerlitz NY  2010 May local law on OWBs considered 2009 preliminary OWB law drafted

Copake NY 2010 Feb. OWB regulations adopted

Livingston NY 2010 May public hearing on local OWB zoning regulations

Excerpt below from 2010 May 6: NY(Austerlitz, Chatham, Copake, Kinderhook, Livingston mentioned): State seeks wood boiler rules:

In the absence of state regulations, the Town of Copake and the Village of Kinderhook went ahead and enacted their own restrictions.

Copake Councilwoman Linda Gabaccia, who worked on developing Copake’s law adopted in February, said the local law hits many of the points contained in the DEC proposal including allowable fuel and air quality standards.

She said the DEC proposal is more stringent on stack height and existing OWBs, and imposes a blackout period, when the devices cannot be used, which the town law does not. The councilwoman also noted that the town’s provision for site plan review of new installations will address concerns about setbacks from neighbors.

Some minor “tweaking” of the town law might be considered along with information meetings to assist owners of existing OWBs about how to bring them into compliance, said Ms. Gabaccia, noting the need to “strike a balance” with people’s need to burn wood in the Northeast.

The local law passed by Kinderhook village officials last December prohibits the installation of any new wood boilers in the village and strictly regulates the use of the two existing OWBs.

The Town of Kinderhook still has a moratorium in place on the installation of OWBs, extended for another three months at the February Town Board meeting. A meeting with a state Department of State representative is scheduled for May 10 at 7 p.m. at the Town Hall.

Other communities around the county are also looking into the issue:

*Livingston town officials have a public hearing scheduled “to create town zoning regulations on outdoor wood burning furnaces,” May 13 at 6:30 p.m. at the Town Hall.

*Austerlitz officials were considering a local law on OWBs as far back as last year, according to Supervisor Jeff Braley. When the new administration took office in January, workshops took place and Mr. Braley said he drafted a preliminary document.
