REGULAR MEETING OF THE TOWN BOARD
TOWN OF GLENVILLE

AT THE GLENVILLE MUNICIPAL CENTER
18 GLENRIDGE ROAD, GLENVILLE, NEW YORK


Present:        Supervisor Frank X. Quinn, Councilmen Robert E. Bailey, Mark A. Quinn, Edward F. Rosenberg and Councilwoman Valerie M. DiGiandomenico

Absent: None

                Supervisor Quinn called the meeting to order at 8:00 PM. Councilwoman DiGiandomenico 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.

Town Council Reports:

                Councilwoman DiGiandomenico – “I just wanted to read the announcement on the Annual Spring Clean-Up/Bulk Item Program, which will begin on April 24th. (the article from the newspaper and website was read).”

                Councilman Quinn – “Several members of the Public Safety Committee met with Art Crouse who is our consultant from AK Associates.  He indicated his intention to have the first of several requests for proposals completed for the furniture which will house our communication equipment by tomorrow.  Subsequent RFP’s will be prepared by the end of summer hopefully for the radio equipment itself.

                With regard to the DARE Advisory Board, just by way of announcement, the Annual DARE Golf Tournament will be held at the Fairways of Halfmoon on Saturday, June 3rd at 9:00 am and they are still looking for foursomes as well as hole and tee sponsors.  This is their major fund raiser every year.”

                Councilman Bailey – “The water plant progress is good down there along the river where we are constructing the addition to the water plant.  If not by now sometime this week the final major concrete pour will be completed, it may already be in place.

                Progress is good and I think we are a few weeks ahead of schedule.  Because we are making progress, progress payments are coming in and I have received requests for the first progress from Lenz Hardware, they are dealing with the heating, ventilating and air-conditioning.  Lenz Hardware has two contracts they also have the plumbing contract and I have a progress for that also.  The first progress payment is in the amount of $7,600 and the second one is $4,892, both for insurance coverage that they need to have in place to start work.  The third item I received just this evening, which I have not had time to review yet, which is for BCI Construction, the general contractor doing the majority of the work there and this is a significant progress payment in the amount of $190,133.”

                Supervisor Quinn – “For all of us up here and for the audience tonight we’re going to make two amendments to tonight’s agenda the remaining items.  We have got one item that we are going to delete from the agenda because we need to do a little bit more work and on the agenda it is listed as #17, it is a resolution approving an agreement between NY Development Group and the Town regarding a potential easement.  We will have one add on at the very end and that is a personnel agenda item where we will go into executive session to discuss pending personnel actions that we have here in the town.

                Supervisor Quinn – “Item No. 5 is a public hearing to hear all persons interested on the proposed extension and improvements of facilities for the existing Alplaus Sewer District No. 1.

                Supervisor Quinn opened the public hearing at 8:11 p.m.

                No one wished to speak; Supervisor Quinn closed the public hearing at 8:12 p.m.

The following people exercised the privilege of the floor:

                Michael Brockbank, 1494 Wendell Ave., Schenectady – “I am here tonight as an attorney representing Ida and Raymond Piotrowski, the owners of the Piotrowski Farm.

                Piotrowski’s have been for the last three or four years and myself involved with the town in the development of the Master Plan for the Freeman’s Bridge Road area which takes into account in a major way the Piotrowski Farm and the other areas and other landowners adjacent to them in the Freeman’s Bridge area.

                During that time the Piotrowski family has been cooperative with the town in the development of a Master Plan and they have accepted the concept of zoning although it is a limitation of freedom they understand that zoning is necessary.  With minor differences we have gone back and forth with the town the master plan developed and the master plan matured over a period of time.  It therefore caught us off guard last week when a news report said that the board in worksession might be considering changing some aspects of the Master Plan.

                We hope that that won’t happen and we want to say or reveal to the town board on the Master Plan the Piotrowski family has entered into a contract several months ago with someone to develop a portion of their land based on the master plan and in furtherance of the master plan.  We believe that this development will enhance the Freeman’s Bridge Road area, compliment the existing areas and be in furtherance of the master plan.  It does take into account the type of zoning contemplated for that portion of the Piotrowski land that is on Freeman’s Bridge.

                We stand ready to meet with the new town officers, the new town board members as we have in the past with town staff and town board members to iron out any differences that may exist and also to consider the larger impact because the Piotrowski land is not only on Freeman’s Bridge but it extends down to Sunnyside Road.  One of the benefits for instance in the recent development of the Wal-mart was the creation of Dutch Meadows Lane which is at no cost to the town a new road in the town.  I am pleased to report that there is the possibility, definite possibility that another access road would be developed with this new developed area, again at no cost to the town and or to the town residents.

                Therefore we hope on behalf of the family that the town would adhere to the master plan rather than changing it at this date and the following speakers will speak to the nature of the new development so that you will have more information about the particulars.”

                Ned Walker, Walker Planning & Design – “I am a landscape architect and a certified planner representing Ray Piotrowski directly.

                I have been working with the Piotrowski family over the past three years to resolve land use issues as related to the draft Freeman’s Bridge Master Plan and more particularly last year as it moved forward through adoption in June of 2004 and in 2005 the Town Board saw fit to implement the zoning recommendations in the land use plan.  That as you know came up to a vote, was tabled and is back under consideration.

                I think what I would like to do tonight is just very briefly let you know that we are ready and willing at your direction to sit across the table again, iron out differences, work collaboratively as we have in the last three years towards implementation of the master plan.

                The last two speakers tonight represent tonight the prospect that has got serious interest in 29 acres of Mr. Piotrowski’s land and basically we are here to give you the courtesy of knowing that an application was filed today for rezoning in support of this new development.

                We have with us here tonight a Senior Executive from Lowe’s International.  It will be a Lowe’s flagship store located on the property.”

                Joe Lanaro, Chief of Engineering, Chazen Companies – “We have been retained to represent Lowe’s regarding this project.  We are very excited about this project; we believe its project conducive to the findings of the Master Plan that was adopted by the town a few years back and our office has been working on this project for sometime now and has completed extensive surveys of the property, environmental studies, we will be advancing some surface programs and as of today a zoning change application has been submitted today to help further this project.  We anticipate on submitting some additional applications in the near future for minor subdivision and site plan considerations by the Planning Board as well as the zoning application submitted to the Town Board.

                I just wanted to again state that we are very interested in working with the Board and feel that this will be a catalyst project for some of the primary objectives of the master plan.”

                Rob Jess, Sr. Site Development Manager, Lowe’s Home Improvement Warehouse – “We are very excited about the potential opportunity to build a store in the Town of Glenville on the Piotrowski property.

                To let you know that we have been searching the market for a long period of time and we identified the Piotrowski property as being an ideal piece especially in light of the Master Plan.  This is a very exciting opportunity; I work on numerous stores throughout the North East.  This is just a great opportunity; looking at a Master Plan which we feel that our use will just fit into that use like a glove and as Mr. Lanaro had indicated we think there is a really good opportunity for the project to really help realize some of the goals of the master plan.

                I wanted the town to realize that Lowe’s is real and provided that we can get the necessary zone change and the necessary approvals we would like to build a store in the Town of Glenville on the Piotrowski property.”

                No one else wished to speak; Supervisor Quinn closed the Privilege of the Floor.

Supervisor’s Comments to the Board:

                Supervisor Quinn – “I would like to share with my colleagues some ideas, thoughts and activities that have been going on.

                I think each of you have received a copy of the notice that we received here in the town regarding the Scotia/Glenville area sidewalk project that has been in the mill for five years or more.

                Recently the Village Board voted that they will no longer pursue this project and therefore are pulling out.  They fully recognize their responsibility in sharing any costs that we have all incurred to this point and they are perfectly prepared and willing and able to do that.

                My understanding is that the school district is looking at doing the same thing and they are saying whether they want to proceed or not.

                We had a recent meeting with the Department of Transportation on this subject reviewing what are the options?  This was prior to the Village Board’s announcement.  We met with DOT to discuss where are we at?  The cost of this project has increased significantly over time and as they have grown we looked at what are the alternatives? What different ways can we deal with this and stay within the budget that we have all set aside as one-third partners in this project?  We have explored those and apparently the board decided on it’s own to proceed from there.

                The informal hearings that were held for the assessment review process are wrapped up right now.  We have had 2,240 of our citizens go for those informal interviews, get some information and now they have to decide whether or not they want to pursue any other actions like go to the formal hearings.

                The 2,240 folks that took advantage of this are basically about twenty percent (20%) of all of our properties in the town, given its over ten years since the last real assessment; we’ve asked how unusual that is twenty-percent (20%) high, low, average, what is it?  The firm that we hired is saying it is right on the money.  That is what they experienced in Glens Falls which they recently completed and the other towns around the state.

                In addition to the 2,240 that did the interviews we received approximately 25 to 30 of them did not show and we’ve got another 200 mail-ins that have come in.  Out of the 11,000, data wise, if we pull out the 9,600 parcels that are residential and you use the past tax bills what you will find is about 29% of the residential units had their taxes decreased $300 or more and about 26% went up about $300 or more.  On the condominiums it is a little different.  About 27% of those folks had taxes reduced by $300 or more, about 3.8% went up $300 or more.  On the commercial properties we have about 58% of those had a reduction in taxes of about $300 or more and about 29% had an increase of about $300 or more.  So overall in the town when you look at the 11,204 properties in the town you would find 28% went down by $300 or more and almost an identical number went up by $300 or more and then there is a group in the middle that went up $100 or down $100.

                We will continue to pursue this, put the final reports together.  Rosalie as our Assessor will come up with the final data and numbers.

                On a different matter the County Intermunicipal Watershed Board, the group that is County wide and responsible for protecting the Great Flats Aquifer in the recharge area, the source of drinking water for 150,000 people in our county.  It is a group of town supervisors, the city, the county representatives and we are a member of that.  If you see my name in the paper with anything having to do with the Watershed Board, despite my efforts not to be elected I was overwhelmingly elected to be the Chair of that board.

                Today I was at a meeting of the County wide Intermunicipal Planning Group and again the town supervisors, the mayor of the city and the county manager, the village mayors etc.  A couple of the three topics that we got into today, the Shared Highway Service Agreement and did all of the towns and the cities send in resolutions so that they can begin to see what we can in fact pull off as joint efforts in the sharing of services, equipment and all of those things.  That is off the ground and ours is in there with them.  They are looking at county wide public works grant proposals.  One of them would be around 9-1-1 and the dispatchers and they put in for a grant on that one.  While that process is off the ground apparently no one believes anything of substance will come out of that.  First the study, then the recommendations and then do we or don’t we want to do things as a joint effort around dispatching and all of the technology that goes with it.

                The bulk of the meeting was devoted to the Emergency Management Planning and how we are going to integrate the command and control structures for that.  There is a whole significant amount of proposed training and these tie in from the federal level to the state level, down to the county level and then right down here to us in our command post and how we would run things for any of the possible emergencies.

                We have got to recommend whose going to be the people because we are going to have to have representatives on the County wide command structure and we all have got to get certain kinds of training.

                Today I met with Ray Gillen from Metroplex and we were talking about a couple of topics.  The first is now that these re-assessments are underway you all know we have got a series of Pilots (payment in lieu of taxes) and so I’m trying to get the data which really is in the IDA on the Pilots that currently exist because how are they written?  They could be written so that there is no change in the Pilot no matter what happens to the property value but they could be written that we are locked into something or are the past contracts that took place over the years are we locked in or not.  If we are not locked then if the property values went up then the Pilot payments ought to go up accordingly.

                We were discussing potential economic development issues for the Industrial Park.

                We have this study underway with Delaware Engineering and we are trying to get our homework assignment organized so that the town and the village representatives can get a meeting together to identify certain pieces of information and data that will help Delaware Engineering as they are doing that survey for us giving us alternatives and options about the discharge and the sewer things in the years to come.

                Last on the schedule is April 11th at 9:00 am we will be meeting here with the gentlemen from the New York Development Group to discuss some things they would like to take up with us.”

                Supervisor Quinn continued with the agenda items.
