Supervisor Mosher,

        I am very pleased to inform you that our eleven year old “All-Star Team” won the Little League Eleven Year Old All Star Tournament and they are the champions in the State of New York.  There were approximately five hundred teams that entered and we are the best.

                This is the first time in our history that our team won the championship and I was wondering if the Town could somehow recognize their accomplishment

Sincerely,
Fred Mastrianni
President of the BH/BL Baseball League

                The Town is going to recognize their accomplishment.  We are going to pass out proclamations at the next Town Board session on September 21st to each and every one of the team players.”

                WHEREAS, Cavoli’s Grinding Service, Inc., formerly of 551 Sacandaga Road, is seeking approval from the Glenville Town Board to receive Empire Zone benefits after having recently relocated from the Town of Glenville to 1921 Broadway, Schenectady, within the Schenectady-Glenville Empire Zone; and

                WHEREAS, pursuant to Section 959 of the General Municipal Law, a “shift resolution” is required from the “sending” municipality if a business desires to relocate from the sending municipality to another municipality and derive Empire Zone benefits in the new municipality; and

                WHEREAS, pursuant to General Municipal Law, the legislative body of the “sending” municipality must hold a public hearing prior to acting upon a shift resolution,

                NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED, that the Glenville Town Board hereby schedules a public hearing for Wednesday, September 21, 2005, at 7:30 p.m., or as soon thereafter as possible, to consider authorizing a “shift” of Cavoli’s Grinding, Inc. from the Town of Glenville to the City of Schenectady, for the purpose of permitting Cavoli’s to derive Empire Zone benefits.

Discussion…

                Supervisor Mosher – The business was being operated out of a residence.  There is nothing wrong with having a business of this type in a residence but if he were operating out of a store front it would be a different story.”

                Councilman Denney – “I agree with that, in a residence you are restricted as to the number of employees that you can have, the number of people you can have come in or out on a daily basis.  While I agree it would be desirable if a person located in the town, the entire town isn’t eligible for Empire Zone Benefits.  It is actually fairly limited and obviously for a business this small a lot of the areas really aren’t appropriate.  I think we should support it with our best wishes.”

                Attorney Mastro, - “I think that this business probably operated as a preexisting and non-conforming use and was allowed to remain in the residence for that purpose and the law prevents them from expanding.  In order to expand they would have to move.”

                Kevin Corcoran – “Certainly they want the deriving benefits from the Empire Zone that has got to be an incentive for them to move.  We did get a letter from Mr. Cavoli, the president of the company.  They said there’s really three reasons besides the Empire Zone Benefits they want to expand their business, they have outgrown their space, they want to introduce a retail component for cutlery, which they don’t have now and they claim they don’t have the space to do it on Sacandaga Road.  They are also leasing, they are renting from a relative and they said there was a change in living arrangements at the house that necessitated them moving.”

                WHEREAS, the Town of Glenville due to the emergency nature of the damage on Gower Road due to summer rain has awarded bids for emergency road repairs and does not want to experience any unnecessary delays in payment; and

                WHEREAS, the Town issuance of bond debt will be delayed by approximately two months to comply with public notice/marketing requirements,

                WHEREAS, it has been several years since we purchased the firearms that our officers carry; and

                WHEREAS, these weapons have been reliable for several years but are now showing structural cracks and damage, and we are also experiencing malfunctions when using them on the range; and

                WHEREAS, it is recommended by the range officers and the Chief of Police that these weapons be replaced; and

                WHEREAS, the money to purchase these weapons will come out of our 2005 budgeted equipment line, 02.00.3120.2000, and the remaining balance will come from our seizure account,

Discussion…

                Councilman Quinn – “This authorizes the Chief of Police to trade in twenty-five Rugger, purchase twenty Sigglow and twenty holsters for a price of $9,504.06.  The one thing that was not mentioned is that this will come out of our 2005 budgeted equipment line and the balance out of our seizure account.”

                Chief Boyle – “The weapons that we presently have which are the 40 caliber Rugger we have twenty-five of them, we have had them for ten years, they are starting to wear.  The slides are not extracting like they are suppose to a lot of the times we use them because they are starting to wear, we have had some fractures in a few, they’re jamming.  They just are not safe.  We did a study since last year at this time, reviewing different weapons from different companies, different caliber of weapons and we found this weapon to be the most viable to use for our department.  Homeland Security also did the same study of all different weapons as well and they purchased sixty-five thousand of these weapons.  To me it appears to be an excellent weapon.  Again we are using existing monies in our budget we are not going beyond that and plus our seizure account.  It is obviously a tool that we need in our business unfortunately.”

Moved by:       Councilman Russo
Seconded by:    Councilman Quinn

                NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED that the Town Board of the town of Glenville adopts the following order:

ORDER

Please take notice that the Town Board of the Town of Glenville will meet at the Glenville Municipal Center, 18 Glenridge Road, Glenville, NY on Wednesday the 21st day of September, 2005 and at 7:30 PM on said date; and at such place, will hear all persons interested on the proposed increase and improvement of facilities for the existing Alplaus Sewer District, consisting of installing pipes, manholes, and pumping stations to eliminate operation of the existing wastewater treatment facilities serving said Alplaus Sewer District No. 1 and also the Rivercrest Sewer District, Town of Clifton Park; and to connect to the facilities of the Town of Glenville Sewer District No. 9 for conveyance of the wastewater to the City of Schenectady for treatment; and to also enlarge the sewer service area within the Alplaus hamlet area by the extension of new sewer pipes and manholes and pumping stations to the remaining populated section of Alplaus Hamlet, to constitute Extension No. 1 to the Alplaus Sewer District No. 1.

1.      A petition to extend the Alplaus Sewer District No. 1 was filed with the Town Board.  A previous public hearing on all of these matters was held on July 21, 2004.  Subsequently the Town Board passed resolutions to establish Extension No. 1 and to increase and improve the facilities of Alplaus Sewer District No. 1. This will be a single unified project.  A further Public Hearing is being held at this time to be certain that all interested parties have been given notice and an opportunity to be heard.
2.      The real properties to be affected directly by the termination of operation of the Alplaus Wastewater Treatment Plant are those properties currently served by the existing sewers in Alplaus Sewer District No. 1, Town of Glenville, and by the existing sewers in the Rivercrest Sewer District, Town of Clifton Park.  These properties are those described by the map, section and block numbers as identified on the Schenectady County Real Property Tax Service Agency Tax Maps for the Alplaus Sewer District No. 1, which are as follows:

Total 139 parcels. 167.5 service units






4.      The maximum amount that is proposed to be expended for the total project is $2,180,000.00.  This cost is apportioned as follows between the three groups proposed to be served by the project :                  Existing Alplaus Sewer District No. 1, Town of Glenville   $   564,699.00
Existing Rivercrest Sewer District, Town of Clifton Park    $   148,835.00
Proposed Extension No. 1 Alplaus Sewer District No. 1,    $1,466,466.00
                   Town of Glenville

5.      The inter-municipal agreement between the Town of Glenville and Town of Clifton Park includes provisions that Rivercrest Sewer District residents be assessed and charged on an equal basis as Alplaus Sewer District residents, in any future improvements as Rivercrest did replace a portion of the Alplaus sewer lines at the time of their connection to the system.

6.      The costs of the project are proposed to be financed by the Town of Glenville by the issuance of bonds for a 30 year term.  Annual debt service costs shall be recovered from the properties served by or benefited by the project on the basis of the parcel’s flow contribution in comparison to the flow contribution of an average single family home, to be called a service unit.  As an example, a two family home would be considered as two service units, one per household.  In addition to the debt service cost, there would be an annual cost for wastewater treatment by the City of Schenectady, and an annual cost for the operation and maintenance of the Alplaus System, and the conveyance of the wastewater in the Sewer District 9 facilities to Schenectady.  The debt service cost is dependent upon the interest rate of the bond issue.  Several rates are presented below to demonstrate the range.  The Town of Glenville historically has had very good bond ratings and these rates shown are expected to include the final rate to be obtained at this time.

Debt service annual costs will vary with the number of service units assessed each year.  Typically service areas add units through new construction.  When the debt is retired at the end of the bond issue, the debt service for this project will no longer be collected.  Annual operating costs and City treatment changes will be adjusted as Town costs change over time.  These O&M and treatment rates have been established for the first year of this project.  See attached spreadsheet for estimated service unit costs at various bond issue interest rates.  As an example, a single family home at a 4.50 % interest rate will pay $767.47 per year.

7.      Each property owner not presently served, will also face a one-time personal cost to connect his property’s sanitary pipe to the sewer service lateral connection pipe installed by the project at the edge of the public right of way.  This service connection pipe will need to be completed within two years of the new sewers becoming available for use.  Cost can be roughly estimated at $25.00 per foot.

At the time of connection to the sewer system a new connection will also need to pay the Town permit and inspection fee of $100.00.

The property owner will also need to close out and fill his existing septic tank, with a typical cost of $400.00.

The one-time total first year connection costs for a typical home is about $2200.00.

8.      The Map, Plan & Report are available for review at the office of the Town Clerk during normal business hours.

9.      The purpose of this project is to eliminate the presently deteriorating and occasionally overloaded existing wastewater treatment plant in Alplaus, and to reduce the pollution of the Mohawk River from the unreliable individual septic systems currently in use in the unsewered parts of the Hamlet of Alplaus.

10.     The Town Board will meet on September 21, 2005 at 7:30 in the evening or as soon thereafter as the matter can be reached, at the Glenville Municipal Center, 18 Glenridge Road, Glenville, NY to hear all persons interested in this improvement project and the establishment of Extension No. 1 to Alplaus Sewer District 1 in the Hamlet of Alplaus.

Discussion…

                Attorney Mastro, Jr. – “This will be the last in a long series of public hearings that have already occurred on the Alplaus Sewer District extension.  The purpose for the public hearing is to make certain that any, not only the residents that are within the proposed Alplaus Sewer District extension but also those who are just outside the district and might want to be incorporated in the district and have noticed that the Town is about to take some action and to petition to be heard one way or the other.

                There have been a number of public hearings on this.  It has been a complex project and after consultation with the comptroller it was agreed that we would have one last public hearing and public information session.”

New Business

                Councilman Denney – “We do have an add on this evening, a follow-up on an item that was discussed in a worksession last week, Councilman Quinn wasn’t there.  We had a presentation from our Town Planner, Kevin Corcoran about the lack of time to be able to allocate towards completing the preparation of the changes in zoning necessary to implement the Freemans Bridges Road Master Plan which we adopted well over a year ago.

                I will just add on that my position has been that we shouldn’t be pursuing an open space plan until we have implemented zoning for a prior plan.  We need to clear the decks because the open space plan is absolutely necessary, I think there is a pretty broad consensus of the board and the community that it is a desirable activity.  We have had lots of discussions in prior worksessions about the fact that the planning department is stressed.  There is a lot of growth going on in the town.  We have two full time people in there and they’ve got an awful lot of work to do just to keep up with the boards and commissions that they are working with and the applicant.
                Last week during the worksession we discussed the possibility of bringing on somebody just temporarily for a few weeks, so that Kevin could put himself in a room somewhere and not have to deal with the day to day issues that come up.  We have talked to a prior employee in that department who has agreed to come on essentially part-time.  We did some research over the last couple of days.  I brought up the idea of bringing in a independent contractor basis, that creates some potential labor issues not to mention some tax issues.

                Attorney Goldberger has been consulted with the labor perspective and he has some suggestions on how we should go about implementing this.  Basically the first step would be is a resolution that you have in front where we are resolving that the Glenville Town Board hereby authorizes the Town Supervisor to file such paper work as is necessary with the Schenectady County Civil Service Commission to create the temporary position of Planner I.  This does not fill the position, it doesn’t compel us to fill the position all it does is gets us on the agenda for the Civil Service Commission who meets on the 20th.  Kevin would like to get going on this towards the end of this month or early next month and we have another meeting on the 21st.  If we do this they will address it on the 20th, on the 21st we will have it on the agenda to fill the position where we will have a proposed hourly rate, who the person would be, the number of hours we want to limit it to what ever we want to put in the resolution can be there.  This doesn’t compel up to do anything.

                If we want to get the zoning done before the end of the year we need to act on this tonight so that is the reason it is an add it was discussed at last weeks worksession that it was coming.”

                WHEREAS, in order to progress various zoning changes recommended in the Freemans Bridge Road Master Plan, there exists a need in the Town of Glenville Planning Department for a temporary planner position, at the Planner I Civil Service level, for a period not to exceed three weeks,
