Town Board Meeting Mnutes 9/5/2007
REGULAR MEETING OF THE TOWN BOARD
TOWN OF GLENVILLE
SEPTEMBER 5, 2007
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 7:30 PM.  Councilwoman DiGiandomenico gave the Invocation and led us in the Pledge of Allegiance.

                Supervisor Quinn asked the Town Clerk, Linda C. Neals, to call the roll.  Everyone was present and accounted.

Town Council Reports:

                Councilman Quinn – “Chief Ranalli, Public Safety Chairman Joe Homer and I met last week with our console consultant from NYSDEC.  Apparently one of our antenna locations adjacent to Saratoga County is no longer in compliance with SCC restrictions.  We will be looking at several options to bring this site into compliance.”

                Councilman Bailey – “I met this afternoon with DPW and Village Water Department personnel.  We had a very good and interactive discussion on the future collaboration effort that we are entering into.  I think it is very promising as we go forward.

                On the water plant, last month I talked about a faulty pump that had failed during testing.  That has been taken out, rebuilt, returned, reinstalled and retested satisfactorily so that is a step in the right direction.

                The remaining big issue keeping us from putting the plan on line is resolving or obtaining the proper automatic operation of the chlorination system.  The Commissioner tells me that he has vendor technical representatives coming in shortly to address that problem.

                At the Zoning Board of Appeals meeting on August 27th, we addressed a number of agenda items.  The biggest one dealt with the Lowe’s’ application.  They had several sign and area variances that they were seeking and after the discussion I think all of those issues were resolved.  Both the ZBA team and the Lowe’s team were happy with the outcome.  Lowe’s indicated that it was a pleasure dealing with the Town.”

                Councilwoman DiGiandomenico – “I just want to expand a little bit on the Lowe’s project and Freemans Bridge Road.

                We have had various meetings with DOT, Verizon, National Grid and Mr. Piotrowski and the following has occurred.  The town has and continues to coordinate with the DOT on the improvement plan of Freemans Bridge Road by Lowe’s.  Verizon and National Grid have agreed to locate the five utility poles in Phase II of the Freemans Bridge Road built out on the Schenectady side at no charge to Lowe’s or the town.

                As part of the road improvement, Lowe’s has committed to the town approximately 2,100 feet of water line, which is located right in the middle of the present Freemans Bridge Road.  Details of this move need to be further addressed.

                The town is also assisting and obtaining owner easements for the Phase II road build out and the water line move.  Any easements obtained would be transferred to the State DOT as Freemans Bridge Road is a state road.

                On a related matter, National Grid has prepared an easement for Mr. Piotrowski to sign to allow them to route underground electric service to Route 50 down Dutch Meadows Land to provide improved services to Walmart, Lowe’s and other properties along Freemans Bridge Road.  The town is coordinating the effort with National Grid and the property owners.”

                The following people exercised the privilege of the floor

                Barbara Guzman – “I live at 30 Woodcrest Drive.  We have lived there a couple of years.  I am here about the proposed Woodcrest sewer extension which I did not realize was at the stage it is at.  I may have signed a petition a year or more ago with regard to this proposed sewer extension.  I thought it was a study and now I realize from information I’ve gotten from various sources that it is coming to fruition and that whether I want to participate or not my house would be charged anywhere from $600 - $1,000 a year.

                We have never had a problem with the sewer.  One or two people have stopped by the house and I said that we were not interested; we have never had a problem before.  My aunt has lived next door for 25 years and she has never had a problem.  Our address is at the end of the proposed district and I really just wanted to not be included.

                I realize now that I missed the public hearing and that was obvious the proper forum to express my concerns which I didn’t know.  I didn’t realize that it was at this stage in the proceedings so I would just ask if there is anything that the board could look at perhaps there is a way for us to get out of it and not have a charge for something we didn’t want and as far as I know we never signed up for.”

                Supervisor Quinn – “The procedure is that if 51% of the people in the proposed district as well as 51% of the assessed value in the proposed district sign up for it then yourself or anyone else that is in the other percentages to be determined are then still bound by boundaries of the district.

                The neighbors get the petitions and they present them to the town, the town has a public hearing to hear all those who want to comment on it.  As long as the petitions are legal and we conduct the public hearing then the town board is then obligated to vote on whether it is a go or no go.  That is why it is on tonight’s agenda.”

                Supervisor Quinn and Councilman Bailey continued to explain the steps that would follow if this extension is approved.

                Adolf Zeglen – “I am 78 years old and I have lived at 213 Sunnyside Road all of my live.  What they are doing across the creek from me is a little disturbing.  Most of the land was wetland and they have put four or five feet of dirt all over to eliminate the wetland.  They put a moat all around the outside; they built it four foot above my property and I didn’t care about that because I figured water was going to stay in the moat.  Monday I hear a lot of crashing and banging; I walked across the creek and here they put a 14” pipe from that moat facing my property.  That water is not going to go out on my property to go into the creek, so somebody had better get back and tell those people because if they do I am pulling my big pipe out and I’m filling it.”
                Father William Gray expressed the following regarding the changes in the County “Sex Offender Law” –

                Ladies and Gentlemen

                My concern is with the changes in the “Sex Offender Law” as passed by the County Legislature at their “meeting” on August 23, 2007.  As someone who protested against the “Law” at the Legislature Meeting on August 22, I find I cannot any longer enter a legal protest against the law because I am not someone who has received a legal notice to move.

                However, I can advise anyone who receives such a notice that they do have a right to enter a legal protest and if they have a lawyer who is a member of the ACLU can also file a lawsuit on behalf of the person.

                I have been informed that such a lawsuit will take at least a year or more before it is settled, which will be after the next election during which the present officials who voted for this law may not be elected again and the law may be changed again.

                I have further been informed that a lawyer who is a member of the ACLU and who is willing to accept clients who seek protection of the law is; Kathy Manley, 74 Chapel Street, Albany, NY 12301, phone #434-1453.

                I would also call your attention to the excellent article in the “Opinion” page of Section C in the Schenectady Gazette of Sunday, Sept. 2, 2007 entitled, “due process is the victim now” by Edwin D. Reilly Jr.”… who lives in Niskayuna and is a regular contributor to the opinion page of the Schenectady Gazette.

                Also on page 3 of the said Opinion page on Sunday Sept. 2, is an article by Tom Woodman, Gazette Managing Editor entitled “Sex Offender Law residency issue tiresome, debate necessary.

                I recommend both of these letters to your immediate attention and since under this “mandate” from the County Board also apply to the Scotia Village Board, I will also advise the Scotia Village Board of my objection to the adoption of the same proposal.

Sincerely

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

Supervisor’s Comments

                Supervisor Quinn shared the following information:

                “It is budget season, we have the 2007 budget and we have the 2008 budget.  Let’s talk about the 2007 budget that we are living with right now.  You all got your copy of where we are as of the end of July.  A couple of items to note as we have completed seven months of bookkeeping; year to date the three main funds on the revenue side we are on target; we are positive and most of the revenue is already in and projecting we should have a small surplus by the end of the year of about 2.7% approximately one quarter of a million dollars.

                On the expense side of the budget year to date we are also positive.  The norm of what we should have expended if you will from the report is about 58% of our budget; we are sitting on about 54% of the budget and so if we don’t get any surprises in the budget for the rest of the year, we should be about 1.6% under on expenditures then what we thought we would be.

                We know that we have one big item hanging out here that is the unresolved PBA Contract.  It is still unresolved for twenty months.  The PBA has not responded to our latest proposal and while we have the money in the budget that we estimated for the year, that thing could come down, depending on what the final settlement is, to be a significant number.

                The budget preparation for 2008 is well under way.  The departments have been turning in their estimates of what they will need for the coming year.  You have all received a memo from the Comptroller of some of the highlights again this year, no surprise to us I’m sure, revenue is flat, and it is not going up and given the market for sales and therefore the mortgage tax is declining.  While revenue is flat look at it as we may be declining for the coming year.  Major estimate for 2008, if the industry holds as it’s been going, is about 11% increase in health care for our current work staff as well as our retirees.  With revenue flat that is approximately $175,000 increase right there.  The NYS Retirement increase will be about $142,000 on top of that and so as you read your way through the memo pay attention because at our next work session and in the future we are going to have to deal with the actual presenting of the budget.  We have some big nuts to crack for 2008.

                The sequence of events, this coming work session we will have a shot at this, by October 5th, our Town Clerk will present the tentative budget then we go into the process of making any revisions for the tentative budget so we can prepare the preliminary budget.  We will have a public hearing on the preliminary budget which must be done by law no later than the Thursday after the General Election.  The final revisions and adoption has to be approved by the 20th of November by the law.

                On the 21st of August we had a meeting with the General Services Administration.  You have a memo please read it over, it was a positive meeting.  The most important thing that I got out of the whole meeting besides what is outlined in this draft here is that the regional office of the GSA Property Disposal Office has finally come around and agreed, they are in the disposal business, let’s dispose of this property as quickly as we can.

                The next step is to get a field study done to help both us as well as GSA figure things out.  There are remediation problems there; things have to be done before that property can be turned over.  GSA agrees that they are responsible as the owner/operator of those properties so we need a feasibility study and that will tell them the magnitude and scope and probably the cost of what it is going to take to reclaim that property so that it can be signed over.  We need the same information because their intent is to sell us that property.  Both parties need to know what it is going to cost to fix this thing.

                On the field study it was agreed that that would move forward and we are working on how it is going to be paid for; are they paying or are we paying?  If that property, the 55 acres down in the Industrial Park, gets put on the super fund site as a contaminated property that could be years and years before it ever works its way through the super fund, finds budgeting money.  It is or it isn’t allocated, it is or it isn’t going to be released and all of the usual things.  So all of the parties at the table agreed, including DEC, that this feasibility study could in fact be done.  It did not necessarily have to get listed on the super fund site but if it follows policies and procedures it can be contracted or it can be performed and it can be moved right along without getting tied up in the bureaucracy.

                On Thursday the 23rd I attended the Local Government Council, we got some more studies and update on what regional impacts will be on the three different scenarios about population and growth in the Capital Region.

                On Wednesday the 29th was the second meeting over at the Alplaus Fire House with the residents to see how many easements we could get signed.  The number signed between the two meetings that we have had is about 17, we still need to get more easements signed.

                Today I was at the Schenectady Military Affairs Council regarding the 109th Airbase.  They are still preparing for deployment to Afghanistan and or Iraq.  On the 17th and 18th of the month I along with representatives from the Chamber, Metroplex and the 109th Military Affairs Council will be going down to Washington DC to lobby down there.  We want to see if we can move things regarding the famous 300 feet of road in front of the airport.

                September 11th at the Waters Edge Restaurant there will be a dedication memorial for 9-11.  The owner has set it up and they have some of the steel from the actual 9-11 sites.

                September 15th at 7:00 am until noon there will be a joint County wide emergency planning exercise down here in the old Kmart lot.  This is an exercise about what do we do if there is a major emergency?  It involves elected as well as appointed officials from not only the Town but from the County and other agencies.

                There are ongoing meetings about the sex offender’s residency and recidivism.  You may have followed in the paper the changes that they have made but they still managed to keep the legislation so the plan is to have level 2 and 3 sex offenders move out of the city, move out of the village and out into the towns.  So they have established a work group, picture this, no chair, no co-chair and to be determined who the thirty people will be.

                Reminder for all of us, we have the joint teams working in work sessions with our collaboration with the Village.  We have a deadline coming up here at the end of the month for each of the work groups to report the outcomes.

                You should have a copy of the Draft Industrial Park Master Plan.  It is a draft; we have to read this over.  There will likely be a resolution at our next meeting asking for acceptance of this.  Get all of your comments in before the 19th.”
