REGULAR MEETING OF THE TOWN BOARD
TOWN OF GLENVILLE
MARCH 15, 2006
AT THE GLENVILLE MUNICIPAL CENTER
18 GLENRIDGE ROAD, GLENVILLE, NEW YORK

Present:        Supervisor Frank X. Quinn, Councilmen Robert E. Bailey, and Edward F. Rosenberg

Absent: Councilman Mark A. Quinn and Councilwoman Valerie M. DiGiandomenico

                Supervisor Quinn called the meeting to order at 8:00 PM. Supervisor Quinn gave the invocation and lead us in the Pledge of Allegiance.

                Supervisor Quinn asked the Town Clerk, Linda C. Neals, to call the roll.  Everyone was present and accounted for except for Councilman Quinn and Councilwoman DiGiandomenico who were absent due to illnesses.

                Supervisor Quinn – “We would like to welcome the students from the Scotia-Glenville High School this evening.”

Town Council Reports:

                Councilman Rosenberg – “The Planning and Zoning Commission had a major sub-division approval of 15.99 acres on Hetcheltown Road that they were requesting to break into nine (9) lots.

                The Planning and Zoning Commission essentially sent the developer back to the drawing board because there were nine (9) curb cuts coming out onto Hetcheltown Road in a fairly busy area and with a history of some problems.  That was adjourned to next month for the builder to come back with something better.

                I talked to the Assessor’s Department and as of about 12:30 pm today there were a little over 1,300 appointments with the assessment company.  They expect that we may have as many as 15–20% of our 11,000 parcels that are involved with that.

                I can tell you that I called there anonymously today to make some appointments for myself because I had some questions and I was very pleasantly, I guess sort of surprised because I’d had some complaints, the people were very nice, very friendly and very accommodating.

                From our Planning Department there is a presentation scheduled for March 28th regarding open space to be held at the Senior Center at 7:00 pm.  It is being put on by the New York Planning Federation and we have invited various review committees, boards, the town board and the open space committee volunteers to attend.  It is also opened to the public.

                Kevin Corcoran is also waiting on a meeting with NYS DOT on the sidewalk project.  That is where we are going to learn if we still have a project or not and we are trying to schedule a meeting between March 22nd and the 29th.  We are asking DOT a couple of questions – can we get additional funding for the project since the project initially was supposed to cost approximately $700,000, it has now ballooned up to $950,000 for the sidewalk project?  The second question is if we can’t get additional funding for the project can we scale the project back to stay within the budget and maybe not do as many sidewalks?  If the answer to one and two is no can we phase the project by trying to acquire additional funding for what ever we can construct at this point?

                From the Building Department, Paul Borisenko gave me some information.  They are in the middle of an annual inspection of all places of assembly in the town including restaurants, churches, the Senior Center and similar things.

                The building code has required this for a long time but is a relatively new program with our department, so Paul is catching us up on some of that stuff.”

                Councilman Bailey – “Everybody has heard a lot about the problem with voting machines and what not.  The Schenectady County Board of Elections is trying to address that by gathering under one roof all of the various possible voting machines that we might have to deal with depending on how those final decisions come out.

                For anybody who cares to attend there is a voting machine demonstration on Monday, March 20th from noon – 5:00 pm and then again on Tuesday, March 21st from noon to 7:00 pm and that is over at the Hudson Valley Community College in Troy.

                Based on what I am hearing people can walk in, you can literally play with these voting machines.  There will be all different kinds and you will be able to give some feedback.

                We are looking at adding a couple of major investments in terms of machinery to our DPW/Highway Department.  Specifically a large dump truck that we will use for snow plowing operations during the winter as well as a sweeper which we agreed we would seriously consider last year during some union negotiations.  That process is moving forward and I have some information that I would like to have on the work session on the 29th of March to present to the board.  We have a need for this equipment and we have an opportunity to buy it at a relatively good price.

                Last evening in regards to open space there was a rather interesting meeting held over in Clifton Park.  It was put on by the Environmental Clearing House and they invited in four speakers to discuss the topic about local farming and how local farming is at risk.  It was an interesting session.  I don’t know what people think about New York but we are indeed a farming state, you may not realize that if you live in a residential area but farming is extremely important in New York and farming is what tends to keep open spaces open.  When a farm goes out of business that open space disappears and that drastically changes the nature of your town.

                Some interesting points, New York is number one in the nation in cabbage and pumpkins, we also produce more grape juice than anybody else in the country.  We are number two in apples and wine and we are number three in sweet corn and dairy products and maple syrup.  Some of this stuff is produced so it is important that we keep open spaces and keep open space productive.  It was an interesting session.

                We are building a water treatment plant down by the river.  Progress is being made; we are probably on our advertised schedule.  Footings are in, walls are going up, re-bar is being placed, and concrete is being pumped.  As a result of all that work bills are coming in.  We have received a payment request for some of the electrical work, Clifford Gray in the amount of $56,000 which covers the value added that they made.  Primarily its materials that have been purchased for installation very shortly as well as ground grid that has to go in under the building during this phase so I recommend that we deal with that bill and we pay that.  We also have a similar bill for BCI the general contractor in the amount of $100,278 and the biggest item on that is concrete, concrete placement and site work in general.  I recommend that we pay that.”

Supervisor’s Comments:

                Supervisor Quinn – “I share with the board members some of the things that I have been involved in over the last two weeks and also some of the things that are upcoming that we will be involved in.

                March 6th, I had a meeting with the Schenectady Military Affairs Council regarding what some of their high priorities are.  The number one high priority is right here on the back end of this property which is of course the airport and the Air National Guard.

                On the 8th I met with the Schenectady County attorney and legislature’s clerk to reference some potential hopefully for us to participate and we were exploring the participation of the town in the county health care and prescription drug programs.  If it can be done to increase our purchasing power from the town side and joining in with those folks and possibly provide the exact same quality of prescription drugs but get a reduction in the cost to the town for providing the purchasing through a contract that the county has.  I will keep you informed as we do that.

                On the 8th we had, here in this room, a promotion and swearing in ceremony for our police to get our staffing up to speed.  We also had some retirement ceremonies and thanked the people for their great service to the Town of Glenville.

                Tomorrow, over in Rotterdam, the Schenectady County Intermunicipal Watershed Board is meeting, I represent us on that and so I will be attending that.

                On the 21st of this month we will have a meeting here with the Clifton Park Water Authority to discuss the possibility of their purchasing water from the Town of Glenville.  We will see what their needs are and what the terms and conditions might be if we were to provide water to Clifton Park.  We currently provide it, as you know, to Rexford.

                We have got some ongoing discussions and meetings that I share:

                Chief of Staff for Congressman McNulty’s office has been working with us on the Industrial Park Property, the GSA properties that are about, hopefully about to be turned over, so we can get some of those buildings and some of those properties on the tax roll.  We are working to get final clearances out of the regional headquarters of GSA so that they can finalize the process for turning buildings loose that are no longer used down there.

                On the 23rd the Alplaus Citizens Association is going to have their annual meeting, I have been invited to go and discuss with them whatever items of interest that they present and any of you that want to attend please come along and we can share the opportunity to present ideas but more importantly respond to the citizens over there.

                I have been involved in a whole series of discussions around a couple of things having to do with fire, since I am the liaison to the fire services.  One has to do with the fire training center and the consortium and proposals and counter proposals and funding activities for the consortium regarding the property on Route 5, there has been no definitive decision making done at this point.  They have put in as a consortium to the Senate and the Assembly and the Governor for member items in this upcoming budget, so keep your fingers crossed, they may get that funding and that will greatly enhance the opportunity to move that project along.

                On the Industrial Park, the fire district, we have some long standing problems between us, the fire districts, the Village and the Village Fire Department around boundaries and coverage’s and so forth and so on.  We are researching that, we are trying to get this long standing problem about boundaries sorted out so that we can not only sort it out for us in our responsibilities but also for the fire districts and for the Village because the Village Fire Department has contracted with several of the occupants in the Industrial Park.  So there is some questions about double billing.  Plus if the GSA properties become available there currently are what you and I might call a no-man’s-land because it has always been federal and once they turn those properties over they will no longer be federal and they are not sitting at this point in anybodies fire district, so there will have to be some decisions made about that.

                In addition I have been answering calls and responding to questions as you may well guess so in addition to what Councilman Rosenberg was talking about with all of the appointments I want to assure you though while you are not here I’m catching all kinds of phone calls and questions and they are doing a first class job at the desk here, but as you know sometimes they want to talk to us elected officials.

                The Intermunicipal Cable Consortium has started as consumer survey so Glenville, Niskayuna and the city and so forth belong to that consortium.  The idea behind the consortium for those of you who may not be aware is that we enhance our purchasing power by joining forces here and see if we can get a better deal on revenue as well as cost from the cable television industry.

                We have been involved in all kinds of things regarding the Alplaus Sewer District project and the modifications in the process and as you know we have some things on there tonight.

                I am not toting or blowing the horn or anything else but on an average week we are fielding at least in my shop, I am answering thirty (30) phone calls a week, not just about assessments or re-vals but people that are trying to do business.”

The following people exercised the privilege of the floor:

                Henry Bakowski, 667 Sacandaga Road – “I get no benefits from the town.  I wonder if we are part of the town.

                I served my time in WW II and just recently we had bonuses given to us, I got a bonus of $40,000 and my assessment went up by $40,000, thank you very much.  How can you assess a piece of property from an automobile sitting in a front seat?  Your paying the assessor’s for that type of assessment?  Would you want your house assessed just from the front, they are doing it and you people are sitting, you have got to do something and get around the town to see what is going on.

                You’re building up Alplaus, which is even getting a sewer system now and half of Sacandaga Road (3/4) doesn’t have natural gas.  You’re favoring one section.  I asked about this house that they bought right up here (History Center) and I don’t know why it is barricaded.

                Why are you taking my bonus away and raising my assessment when I don’t get any benefits?  I am begging the police to come up the road, cars are doing, not cars but trucks, and it’s a truck route now.  I followed a sand truck that was doing close to 80 mph coming down Sacandaga Road.  I think I saw a cop car the other day, the first one that I have seen all year.  I don’t know where they are.

                I go to a few meetings around and this is the only place that does not give a financial report.  A financial report should be at every meeting, no matter what organization you go to you have a financial report.  How do you know if you have got money to buy a new truck?

                With this assessment system that you have, you’ve got the whole town riled up for what kind of benefits?  I don’t get no natural gas, no sewers and yet we are assessed the same as Alplaus, right!  West Glenville it seems that you’ve got a separation, east and west, east gets everything, west gets nothing.  We don’t even get leave pick up; you took that away from us.  Because you said Sacandaga Road is too dangerous.

                Make Sacandaga Road and west of Sacandaga part of Glenville, would you do that?  Keep us in touch financially so that we know that you can afford some big equipment that we are not taxed for at the end of the year that you are buying.  I would like to see you people give a financial report every meeting so we know when you want to buy something we can go ahead and say buy it or don’t.”

                Chester Bakowski, 670 Sacandaga Road – “I just want to clear up one thing that my brother said and this is on the assessment  Does anyone really know what these assessors do when they are out assessing?  Have you ever observed any?  I have, I happened to be on the front of my property when they came out and assessed my area.  I couldn’t imagine what was going on, a car came up the road, stopped by a house for about five minutes, came to the next house and he got to my house, there were two gentlemen in the car, they never got out of the car.  They looked out of the car window, took a picture and drove off.  That was my assessment.  This is what we are paying these people to do!  I don’t believe it.  How can you give an honest assessment by looking at the front of a house, never see the house on the side or the back or any portion of it, never looked at the size of my property.  I did make an appointment with those people and there is definitely something wrong when they can assess a house by just driving up to it and telling you what it is worth.  In the twenty years that I have lived there I haven’t done anything inside or out.  They would have been welcomed to come in and look, but now if they came I’d throw them right out in the road.  I think they are not only ripping off the taxpayers but they are also ripping off the town.”

                Hank Sarnowski, 56 Freemans Bridge Road – “I’d like to give a little thanks to some of our town people.  Yesterday we had an incident just up the road from us, Auto Solutions was broken into.  I happened to go out the back door of my business, which is approximately 600 feet or so down the road and there were people all over the place.  They were looking for somebody; they wanted to know what I was doing there.

                Myself and my son walked our property and spent about twenty minutes outside.  The Glenville police showed up next door just north of our place at my mom’s house.  There are a couple of vacant buildings there, it was thought that maybe they entered there and were hiding.  The first Glenville patrolman and I basically checked the house together from the outside and seen nothing was broken into or disturbed.

                I believe it was Officer William Gallop that came along about ten minutes later; he pulled in the driveway and proceeded down the road, a few minutes later and pulled in the taxi place.

                I picked up the paper this morning and they did catch the fellow down there hiding.  It’s nice to see that we came up with a carcass once in a while.  I think it will quite down a little bit and maybe put a warning out that maybe Glenville’s not such a patsy place to do that type of business.

                I think the guys did a nice job and they were down there in about ten minutes and so it was resolved nicely.  I appreciate it!”

                No one else wished to speak; Supervisor Quinn closed the privilege of the floor.

                Supervisor Quinn continued with the agenda items.

                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 5th day of April, 2006 at 8:00 PM and 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 second Public Hearing was held on September 21, 2005 to be certain that all interested parties had been given notice and an opportunity to be heard.  A further Public Hearing is being held at this time in order to complete the review required by the State Environmental Quality Review Act (SEQRA).
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 April 5, 2006 at 8:00 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.
