                                      FIRST DAY

      The Chairman called the Board to order, the roll was called and the following
Representatives were found to be present:

     Relic, Powers, Clark, Murphy, Fournier, Lindberg, Dubben, Johnson, McCarty,
Schwerd, Stayton, Rothenberger, Rowinski, Stuligross.

         Under Privilege of the Floor, George Sydlar of Oneonta requested that the County
Board conduct an investigation of county employees that have violated his constitutional
rights. He stated that for 17 months he has attempted to have due process rights to a fair
trial in this county. Mr. Sydlar feels that he has been a victim of tampering with evidence,
jury tampering and lawful filed pleadings not addressed and has been unable to defend
himself due to these violations. The violations can be documented by the County Court
Clerk’s office, District Attorney’s office, Public Defender’s office, Court Officers Supervisors,
Court Reporters office, the Administrative Judge of the Sixth Judicial District, the New York
State Supreme Court Appellate Division, court transcripts and his three defense attorneys.
Mr. Sydlar stated that the County Board has an obligation to investigate the actions of
county employees and to take appropriate action to protect its citizens.

       Nicole Dillingham of Otsego 2000 stated that Otsego 2000 has filed significant
comments to the US Environmental Protection Agency regarding hydrofracking. These
comments are available online. Environmental agencies are urging the NYS Department
of Environmental Conservation to wait on its decision regarding hydrofracking until the
USEPA study is completed. Ms. Dillingham stated that Otsego County is the headwaters
for the Susquehanna River, which is an important water source for a multi-state region.
Presently, there is no facility prepared to treat the water from hydrofracking, and the waste
will have radioactive particles. She added that while Albany is a little more cautious right
now, there is still no moratorium on gas drilling.

       The minutes of September 1, 2010 were approved.

       The following report is on file with the Clerk of the Board:

       Financial Report for the County of Otsego for the Year 2009 by Ciaschi,
             Dietershagen, Little, Mickelson and Company

       The reports of the Standing Committees were given and ordered filed.

       The Chairman declared a short break.

       The Board reconvened.

     Representative Relic moved to dispense with the reading of all Resolutions.

                            RESOLUTION NO. 305-20101006

           RESOLUTION - AUTHORIZING THE ISSUANCE PURSUANT TO
          SECTION 90.10 OF THE LOCAL FINANCE LAW OF REFUNDING
            BONDS OF THE COUNTY OF OTSEGO, NEW YORK, TO BE
            DESIGNATED SUBSTANTIALLY "PUBLIC IMPROVEMENT
          REFUNDING (SERIAL) BONDS", AND PROVIDING FOR OTHER
          MATTERS IN RELATION THERETO AND THE PAYMENT OF THE
                     BONDS TO BE REFUNDED THEREBY


                            JOHNSON, SCHWERD, MURPHY


        WHEREAS, Otsego County, New York (hereinafter, the "County”) heretofore issued
$29,994,874 Public Improvement (Serial) Bonds, 2002 pursuant to a bond determination
certificate executed by the County Treasurer (the "Bond Certificate"), to finance the cost of
a skilled nursing facility in and for said County as further described in the Bond Certificate,
such bonds being dated October 15, 2002 with remaining maturities on November 15 in the
years 2010 through 2027, both inclusive (the "Refunded Bonds"); and

      WHEREAS, it would be in the public interest to refund all or a portion of the
outstanding principal balance of the Refunded Bonds by the issuance of refunding bonds
pursuant to Section 90.10 of the Local Finance Law; and

      WHEREAS, such refunding will only be undertaken if it results in present value
savings in debt service as required by Section 90.10 of the Local Finance Law; NOW,
THEREFORE, BE IT

       RESOLVED, by the Board of Representatives of Otsego County, New York, as
follows:

        Section 1. For the object or purpose of refunding the outstanding principal
balance of the Refunded Bonds as more fully set forth in the Refunding Financial Plan
(hereinafter defined), including providing moneys which, together with the interest earned
from the investment of certain of the proceeds of the refunding bonds herein authorized,
shall be sufficient to pay (i) the principal amount of such Refunded Bonds, (ii) the
aggregate amount of unmatured interest payable on such Refunded Bonds to and
including the date on which the Refunded Bonds which are callable are to be called prior to
their respective maturities in accordance with the refunding financial plan, as hereinafter
defined, (iii) the costs and expenses incidental to the issuance of the refunding bonds
herein authorized, including the development of the refunding financial plan, as hereinafter
defined, compensation to the underwriter or underwriters, as hereinafter defined, costs and
expenses of executing and performing the terms and conditions of the escrow contract or
contracts, as hereinafter defined, and fees and charges of the escrow holder or holders, as
hereinafter mentioned, (iv) the redemption premium to be paid on such Refunded Bonds
which are to be called prior to their respective maturities, and (v) the premium or premiums
for a policy or policies of municipal bond insurance or cost or costs of other credit
enhancement facility or facilities, for the refunding bonds herein authorized, or any portion
thereof, there are hereby authorized to be issued not exceeding $21,000,000 refunding
serial bonds of the County pursuant to the provisions of Section 90.10 of the Local Finance
Law (the "Refunding Bonds"), it being anticipated that the amount of Refunding Bonds
actually to be issued will be approximately $20,035,000, as provided in Section 4 hereof.
The Refunding Bonds shall each be designated substantially "PUBLIC IMPROVEMENT
REFUNDING (SERIAL) BOND" together with such series designation and year as is
appropriate on the date of sale thereof, shall be of the denomination of $5,000 or any
integral multiple thereof (except for any odd denominations, if necessary) not exceeding
the principal amount of each respective maturity, shall be numbered with the prefix R-10
(or R with the last two digits of the year in which the Refunding Bonds are issued as
appropriate) followed by a dash and then from 1 upward, shall be dated on such dates, and
shall mature annually on such dates in such years, bearing interest semi-annually on such
dates, at the rate or rates of interest per annum, as may be necessary to sell the same, all
as shall be determined by the County Treasurer pursuant to Section 4 hereof. It is hereby
further determined that (a) such Refunding Bonds may be issued in series, (b) such
Refunding Bonds may be sold at a discount in the manner authorized by paragraph a of
Section 57.00 of the Local Finance Law pursuant to subdivision 2 of paragraph f of Section
90.10 of the Local Finance Law, and (c) such Refunding Bonds may be issued as a single
consolidated issue. It is hereby further determined that such Refunding Bonds may be
issued to refund all, or any portion of, the Refunded Bonds, subject to the limitation
hereinafter described in Section 10 hereof relating to approval by the State Comptroller.

        Section 2. The Refunding Bonds may be subject to redemption prior to maturity
upon such terms as the County Treasurer shall prescribe, which terms shall be in
compliance with the requirements of Section 53.00 (b) of the Local Finance Law. If less
than all of the Refunding Bonds of any maturity are to be redeemed, the particular
refunding bonds of such maturity to be redeemed shall be selected by the County by lot in
any customary manner of selection as determined by the County Treasurer. Notice of such
call for redemption shall be given by mailing such notice to the registered owners not less
than thirty (30) days prior to such date. Notice of redemption having been given as
aforesaid, the bonds so called for redemption shall, on the date for redemption set forth in
such call for redemption, become due and payable, together with interest to such
redemption date, and interest shall cease to be paid thereon after such redemption date.

        The Refunding Bonds shall be issued in registered form and shall not be registrable
to bearer or convertible into bearer coupon form. In the event said Refunding Bonds are
issued in non-certificated form, such bonds, when issued, shall be initially issued in
registered form in denominations such that one bond shall be issued for each maturity of
bonds and shall be registered in the name of Cede & Co., as nominee of The Depository
Trust Company, New York, New York ("DTC"), which will act as securities depository for
the bonds in accordance with the Book-Entry-Only system of DTC. In the event that either
DTC shall discontinue the Book-Entry-Only system or the County shall terminate its
participation in such Book-Entry-Only system, such bonds shall thereafter be issued in
certificated form of the denomination of $5,000 each or any integral multiple thereof
(except for any odd denominations, if necessary) not exceeding the principal amount of
each respective maturity. In the case of non-certificated Refunding Bonds, principal of and
interest on the bonds shall be payable by check or draft mailed by the Fiscal Agent (as
hereinafter defined) to DTC, or to its nominee, Cede & Co., while the bonds are registered
in the name of Cede & Co. in accordance with such Book-Entry-Only System. Principal
shall only be payable upon surrender of the bonds at the principal corporate trust office of
such Fiscal Agent (or at the office of the County Treasurer as Fiscal Agent as hereinafter
provided).

       In the event said Refunding Bonds are issued in certificated form, principal of and
interest on the Refunding Bonds shall be payable by check or draft mailed by the Fiscal
Agent (as hereinafter defined) to the registered owners of the Refunding Bonds as shown
on the registration books of the County maintained by the Fiscal Agent (as hereinafter
defined), as of the close of business on the fifteenth day of the calendar month or first
business day of the calendar month preceding each interest payment date as appropriate
and as provided in a certificate of the County Treasurer providing for the details of the
Refunding Bonds. Principal shall only be payable upon surrender of bonds at the principal
corporate trust office of a bank or trust company or banks or trust companies located or
authorized to do business in the State of New York, as shall hereafter be designated by the
County Treasurer as fiscal agent of the County for the Refunding Bonds (collectively the
"Fiscal Agent").

        Refunding Bonds in certificated form may be transferred or exchanged at any time
prior to maturity at the principal corporate trust office of the Fiscal Agent for bonds of the
same maturity of any authorized denomination or denominations in the same aggregate
principal amount.

      Principal and interest on the Refunding Bonds will be payable in lawful money of the
United States of America.

       The County Treasurer, as chief fiscal officer of the County, is hereby authorized and
directed to enter into an agreement or agreements containing such terms and conditions
as he shall deem proper with the Fiscal Agent, for the purpose of having such bank or trust
company or banks or trust companies act, in connection with the Refunding Bonds, as the
Fiscal Agent for said County, to perform the services described in Section 70.00 of the
Local Finance Law, and to execute such agreement or agreements on behalf of the
County, regardless of whether the Refunding Bonds are initially issued in certificated or
non-certificated form.

         The County Treasurer is hereby further delegated all powers of this Board of
Representatives with respect to agreements for credit enhancement, derived from and
pursuant to Section 168.00 of the Local Finance Law, for said Refunding Bonds, including,
but not limited to the determination of the provider of such credit enhancement facility or
facilities and the terms and contents of any agreement or agreements related thereto.

       The Refunding Bonds shall be executed in the name of the County by the manual or
facsimile signature of the County Treasurer, and its corporate seal shall be imprinted
thereon. In the event of facsimile signature, the Refunding Bonds shall be authenticated
by the manual signature of an authorized officer or employee of the Fiscal Agent. The
Refunding Bonds shall contain the recital required by subdivision 4 of paragraph j of
Section 90.10 of the Local Finance Law and the recital of validity clause provided for in
Section 52.00 of the Local Finance Law and shall otherwise be in such form and contain
such recitals, in addition to those required by Section 51.00 of the Local Finance Law, as
the County Treasurer shall determine. It is hereby determined that it is to the financial
advantage of the County not to impose and collect from registered owners of the
Refunding Bonds any charges for mailing, shipping and insuring bonds transferred or
exchanged by the Fiscal Agent, and, accordingly, pursuant to paragraph c of Section 70.00
of the Local Finance Law, no such charges shall be so collected by the Fiscal Agent.

       Section 3.    It is hereby determined that:

      (a)    the maximum amount of the Refunding Bonds authorized to be issued
pursuant to this resolution does not exceed the limitation imposed by subdivision 1 of
paragraph b of Section 90.10 of the Local Finance Law;

       (b)   the maximum period of probable usefulness permitted by law at the time of
the issuance of the Refunded Bonds for the object or purpose for which such Refunded
Bonds were issued is thirty years;

       (c)    the last installment of the Refunding Bonds will mature not later than the
expiration of the period of probable usefulness of the object or purpose for which said
Refunded Bonds were issued in accordance with the provisions of subdivision 1 of
paragraph c of Section 90.10 of the Local Finance Law;

        (d)     the estimated present value of the total debt service savings anticipated as a
result of the issuance of the Refunding Bonds, computed in accordance with the provisions
of subdivision 2 of paragraph b of Section 90.10 of the Local Finance Law, with regard to
the Refunded Bonds is as shown in the Refunding Financial Plan described in Section 4
hereof.

       Section 4. The financial plan for the refunding authorized by this resolution (the
"Refunding Financial Plan"), showing the sources and amounts of all moneys required to
accomplish such refunding, the estimated present value of the total debt service savings
and the basis for the computation of the aforesaid estimated present value of total debt
service savings, are set forth in Exhibit A attached hereto and made a part of this
resolution. The Refunding Financial Plan has been prepared based upon the assumption
that the Refunding Bonds will be issued in one series, and that the Refunding Bonds will
mature, be of such terms, and bear interest as set forth on Exhibit A attached hereto and
made a part of this resolution. This Board of Representatives recognizes that the
Refunding Bonds may be issued in one or more series, and for only portions thereof, that
the amount of the Refunding Bonds, maturities, terms, and interest rate or rates borne by
the Refunding Bonds to be issued by the County will most probably be different from such
assumptions and that the Refunding Financial Plan will also most probably be different
from that attached hereto as Exhibit A. The County Treasurer is hereby authorized and
directed to determine the amount of the Refunding Bonds to be issued, the date or dates of
such bonds and the date or dates of issue, maturities and terms thereof, the provisions
relating to the redemption of Refunding Bonds prior to maturity, whether the Refunding
Bonds will be insured by a policy or policies of municipal bond insurance or otherwise
enhanced by a credit enhancement facility or facilities, whether the Refunding Bonds shall
be sold at a discount in the manner authorized by paragraph e of Section 57.00 of the
Local Finance Law, and the rate or rates of interest to be borne thereby, whether the
Refunding Bonds shall be issued having substantially level or declining annual debt service
and all matters related thereto, and to prepare, or cause to be provided, a final Refunding
Financial Plan for the Refunding Bonds and all powers in connection therewith are hereby
delegated to the County Treasurer; provided, that the terms of the Refunding Bonds to be
issued, including the rate or rates of interest borne thereby, shall comply with the
requirements of Section 90.10 of the Local Finance Law. The County Treasurer shall file a
copy of his certificate determining the details of the Refunding Bonds and the final
Refunding Financial Plan with the Clerk of the Board of Representatives not later than ten
(10) days after the delivery of the Refunding Bonds, as herein provided.

       Section 5. The County Treasurer is hereby authorized and directed to enter into
an escrow contract or contracts (collectively the "Escrow Contract") with a bank or trust
company, or with banks or trust companies, located and authorized to do business in this
State as said County Treasurer shall designate (collectively the "Escrow Holder") for the
purpose of having the Escrow Holder act, in connection with the Refunding Bonds, as the
escrow holder to perform the services described in Section 90.10 of the Local Finance
Law.

       Section 6. The faith and credit of said Otsego County, New York, are hereby
irrevocably pledged to the payment of the principal of and interest on the Refunding Bonds
as the same become due and payable. An annual appropriation shall be made in each
year sufficient to pay the principal of and interest on such bonds becoming due and
payable in such year. There shall be annually levied on all the taxable real property in said
County a tax sufficient to pay the principal of and interest on such Refunding Bonds as the
same become due and payable.

       Section 7. All of the proceeds from the sale of the Refunding Bonds, including the
premium, if any, but excluding accrued interest thereon, shall immediately upon receipt
thereof be placed in escrow with the Escrow Holder for the Refunded Bonds. Accrued
interest on the Refunding Bonds shall be paid to the County to be expended to pay interest
on the Refunding Bonds. Such proceeds as are deposited in the escrow deposit fund to be
created and established pursuant to the Escrow Contract, whether in the form of cash or
investments, or both, inclusive of any interest earned from the investment thereof, shall be
irrevocably committed and pledged to the payment of the principal of and interest on the
Refunded Bonds in accordance with Section 90.10 of the Local Finance Law, and the
holders, from time to time, of the Refunded Bonds shall have a lien upon such moneys
held by the Escrow Holder. Such pledge and lien shall become valid and binding upon the
issuance of the Refunding Bonds and the moneys and investments held by the Escrow
Holder for the Refunded Bonds in the escrow deposit fund shall immediately be subject
thereto without any further act. Such pledge and lien shall be valid and binding as against
all parties having claims of any kind in tort, contract or otherwise against the County
irrespective of whether such parties have notice thereof.

       Section 8. Notwithstanding any other provision of this resolution, so long as any
of the Refunding Bonds shall be outstanding, the County shall not use, or permit the use
of, any proceeds from the sale of the Refunding Bonds in any manner which would cause
the Refunding Bonds to be an "arbitrage bond" as defined in Section 148 of the Internal
Revenue Code of 1986, as amended, and, to the extent applicable, the Regulations
promulgated by the United States Treasury Department thereunder.
       Section 9. In accordance with the provisions of Section 53.00 and of paragraph h
of Section 90.10 of the Local Finance Law, in the event such bonds are refunded, the
County hereby elects to call in and redeem each Refunded Bond which the County
Treasurer shall determine to be refunded at the earliest call date available. The sum to be
paid therefor on such redemption date shall be the par value thereof plus the redemption
premium, as provided in the Refunded Bond Certificate, and the accrued interest to such
redemption date. The Escrow Agent for the Refunding Bonds is hereby authorized and
directed to cause notice of such call for redemption to be given in the name of the County
in the manner and within the times provided in the Refunded Bond Certificate. Such notice
of redemption shall be in substantially the form attached to the Escrow Contract. Upon the
issuance of the Refunding Bonds, the election to call in and redeem the callable Refunded
Bonds and the direction to the Escrow Agent to cause notice thereof to be given as
provided in this paragraph shall become irrevocable, provided that this paragraph may be
amended from time to time as may be necessary in order to comply with the publication
requirements of paragraph a of Section 53.00 of the Local Finance Law, or any successor
law thereto.

       Section 10. The Refunding Bonds shall be sold at private sale to Jefferies &
Company, Inc. for purchase prices to be determined by the County Treasurer, plus accrued
interest from the date or dates of the Refunding Bonds to the date or dates of the delivery
of and payment for the Refunding Bonds. Subject to the approval of the terms and
conditions of such private sale by the State Comptroller as required by subdivision 2 of
paragraph f of Section 90.10 of the Local Finance Law, the County Treasurer, is hereby
authorized to execute and deliver a purchase contract for the Refunding Bonds in the
name and on behalf of the County providing the terms and conditions for the sale and
delivery of the Refunding Bonds.

       Section 11. The County Treasurer and all other officers, employees and agents of
the County are hereby authorized and directed for and on behalf of the County to execute
and deliver all certificates and other documents, perform all acts and do all things required
or contemplated to be executed, performed or done by this resolution or any document or
agreement approved hereby.

      Section 12. All other matters pertaining to the terms and issuance of the Refunding
Bonds shall be determined by the County Treasurer and all powers in connection thereof
are hereby delegated to the County Treasurer.

       Section 13. The validity of the Refunding Bonds may be contested only if:

      1.      Such obligations are authorized for an object or purpose for which said
County is not authorized to expend money, or

        2.     The provisions of law which should be complied with at the date of publication
of this resolution are not substantially complied with, and an action, suit or proceeding
contesting such validity is commenced within twenty days after the date of such
publication, or

       3.     Such obligations are authorized in violation of the provisions of the
Constitution.
       Section 14. A summary of this resolution, which takes effect immediately, shall be
published in the official newspaper of said County, together with a notice of the Clerk of the
Board of Representatives in substantially the form provided in Section 81.00 of the Local
Finance Law.
