The meeting has grown out of charges of election mismanagement and now includes minor charges of corruption against the town's five fire commissioners. (See letter, p.4., and editorial, p.4.).

Yevoli called Tuesday for a six - month moratorium on all oil - gas tank farm applications, including the controversial proposal of Northville Industries which is seeking a Plainview location for such a facility. Councilman Yevoli said, "The six month moratorium period would give town officials an opportunity to draft a stringent zoning ordinance regulating fuel tank farms." He said, "At the present time there are almost no state or federal controls regulating this type of facility. It is therefore.incumbent upon local municipalities to take the initiative and provide rigid specifications that will provide • the proper protection required to insure the general health, safety, and we "Jare or their communities and residents." "The current application of Northville Industries now pending before the Town Board is classified as an oil tank farm, in reality this is a misnomer, when you consider that their proposal Flu Ffoors Marchers March of Dimes phones have been working overtime with calls from Mothers Marchers who wish to carry out their assignments, but are now fighting the battle of the flu.

A more accurate description of this proposed facility could be gasoline - oil tank farm. "It is my opinion that until state or federal agencies offer stronger safety requirements covering a facility of this magnitude that has the obvious capability of destroying an entire community, then it is imperative for local municipalities to make every effort to formulate regulations that will eliminate the possibilities of a potential disaster occuring." Yevoli said. To do this, the Councilman called for a specific town zoning ordinance applicable only to fuel tank storage depots. It . would include ' the following stipulations: + Minimum distance from residential areas. + Specific on - site fire - prevention equipment. POINT OF INTEREST: Oyster Bay Town Councilman Sal Mosca of Bethpage took time out to offer the fifth grade class at Kramer Lane School, Bethpage, a tour of Town Hall recently. The students and their teacher, Ramona Levitt, attended a public hearing before the Town Board as part of their visit to Town Hall. + Tanks located a minimum distance from major commercial arteries. + A maximum amount of gas and oil that can be stored on a per acre basis. + Required installation of storage tanks below ground. + Aesthetic controls (Landscaping buffer zones, etc.) + "Only after these and other needed criteria are met should an applicant be permitted to make a proposal before the town board" added YevolL— "Realizing that the Bi - County Plan and the Nassau County Planning Commission have . endorsed the concept of oil and gasoline depots located on the spine of Long Island, it appears as if these facilities will be developed in the near future." ,. Xevptt.saidVyOujr town has an opportunity to directly address itself to the obvious problems that exist with this form of progress and I think we should make a sincere effort to offer the maximum protection to town residents, our suburban communities, and our environment."
