152 SCHUYLER COUNTY LEGISLATURE PUBLIC PARTICIPATION: Bonnie Howell, representing the Village of Montour Falls Board, said she was surprised to have found out that the Legislature was considering a Resolution that would lease the old Office for the Aging building to Schuyler Hospital for one year. She was told that the County had informed the Village that it would try and sell the building, thus returning it to the tax rolls, not lease it. She feels public officials should not make promises to public officials when those promises are not going to be kept. Administrator O’Hearn said he had been in touch with the Mayor of the Village on a regular basis regarding the lease developments. This is not a surprise to the Village. He said he has made every effort to keep the Village informed through the Mayor all along. 7:00 PUBLIC HEARING ON LOCAL LAW INTRO. NO. 7 OF THE YEAR 2007/LOCAL LAW NO. OF THE YEAR 2008 ESTABLISHING SEX OFFENDER RESIDENCY AND PROXIMITY RESTRICTIONS: Mr. Bill Elkins said he feels most of the molestation cases have been committed in the home and are not happening in the public. He is sympathetic of the purpose to protect our children, however he is concerned that we are adding additional punishment to the offenders after they have already served their time. He feels we are attacking a very minor part of this problem. He said the Department of Social Services is doing a good job when receiving reports through the hot line. He is not here to recommend not passing the law, he would like to see it tabled and studied some more. He would recommend amending the law to limit it to only Level 3 offenders because these are the serious ones. The restrictions on residency seems to cover a lot of land, play grounds, churches etc. He said these people pay taxes just like you and me and he feels they should have the right to use the parks, especially during the day, however maybe not at night. RESOLUTION NO. 19 Motion by Larison, Second by Yuhasz.

152 SCHUYLER COUNTY LEGISLATURE Vote: 8-0. RESOLUTION NO. 25A Motion by Larison, Second by Gifford. RE: MOTION TO AMEND RESOLUTION NO. 25 TO INCLUDE ISSUING FEES FOR SERVICE TO THE VILLAGE OF MONTOUR FALLS - FAILED BE IT RESOLVED, that Resolution No. 25 be amended to include issuing fees for service to the Village of Montour Falls. DISCUSSION: Legislator Larison feels that the initial Payment In Lieu Of Taxes (PILOT) figure should be calculated so that the Village of Montour Falls receives a portion of the rent paid to the County. Legislator Fagan made it known that this is a lease because a sale could not be executed. This lease will provide ten employees that will be working in downtown Montour Falls and he sees that as a benefit to the Village of Montour Falls. Legislator Blelier said communications seam to be the biggest concern. The County’s intention is to sell both buildings. He suggested tabling this Resolution until this concern could be cleared up. Administrator O’Hearn said he had been communicating to the Village Board. Every development has been communicated to the Village Mayor. It should not be a surprise to them. He received no opposition from the Mayor with their discussions. He feels if the building were to be sold, it would be torn down. Every attempt was made by him to keep them informed. Legislator Larison is upset that we are not willing to share the rent with the Village. He wants to give them some of the profit. Attorney Coleman said the lease is not a sale there is no PILOT and we maintain ownership of the building. Chairman Gifford removed himself from the Chairmanship to speak on the issue. He clarified what Legislator Larison is asking for as being more like a fee for service, not a PILOT. Legislator Bleiler said he didn’t get the message that the Village Board is looking for money. He feels it will be confusing things if we try to do this. It seams the Mayor is aware of more than the Board. Legislator Yuhasz suggested that the Village be more involved from this point forward with the sale of the properties. Vote: 2-6. Failed. Noes: Karius, Bleiler, Yuhasz, Fagan, Field, Gifford. RESOLUTION NO. 25 Motion by Larison, Second by Bleiler. RE: AUTHORIZE LEASE AGREEMENT WITH SCHUYLER HOSPITAL - BUILDINGS AND GROUNDS WHEREAS, Schuyler County has an unoccupied building at 336 West Main Street, Montour Falls, and WHEREAS, Schuyler Hospital is seeking office space to rent. NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED, that the Chairman of the Legislature be hereby authorized to sign a one-year contract with Schuyler Hospital, for use of 1,264 square feet at $12.20 per square foot on the East side of the building located at 336 West Main Street, Montour Falls, subject to the approval of the Schuyler County Attorney. Vote: 7-1. No: Larison. RESOLUTION NO. 26A Motion by Larison, Second by Marcellus. RE: MOTION TO AMEND RESOLUTION NO. 26 TO REMOVE ITEMS I-VI UNDER LETTER B. IN SECTION 7 WHICH ALLOWS FOR ALCOHOLIC BEVERAGES ON THE PREMISES UNDER CERTAIN CIRCUMSTANCES FROM THE ATTACHED GUIDELINES BE IT RESOLVED, that under Section 7, Letter B., items I-VI be removed from the attached guidelines being amended by Resolution No. 26 and that Letter B remain stating that NO ALCOHOLIC BEVERAGES are allowed on the premises. DISCUSSION: Legislator Larison said he feels they should move to not allow alcoholic beverages in the county buildings. Legislator Marcellus agrees and feels very strongly about the message this would send on behalf of this allowance. Chairman Gifford said there is a big difference in drinking versus tasting. The wine maker would have to enforce this. Legislator Larison said we have agencies in the community to help with drinking problems and he feels this sends the wrong message. Legislator Bleiler agrees that we should not serve alcohol in the county buildings. County buildings are for business, why do this? The perception could be wrong and we could be sued for some accident that might happen because of it. Also, the Schuyler Head Start program is there in the same building. The public use the Department of Social Services that is located there also for assistance and he feels this sends the wrong message. He feels they need to send a helping message not entertainment.

152

SCHUYLER COUNTY LEGISLATURE WHEREAS, the 2008-09 Executive Budget proposes to break this historic state/local fiscal partnership by shifting a portion of the State’s cost for the Family Assistance and the Safety Net program, and WHEREAS, the Governor’s proposed budget includes another serious impact to counties by implementing a local share for the cost of carving out two-parent families from the federal wet-k participation rates, by removing the local district hold-harmless provision, and WHEREAS, this carve-out of the two parent families will save the state approximately $7.5 million per year, but directly, negatively impact county budgets.

RE: RESOLUTION IN OPPOSITION TO THE PROPOSED NEW YORK STATE DEPARTMENT OF ENVIRONMENTAL CONSERVATION (NYSDEC) RULE MAKING TO AMEND DAM SAFETY REGULATIONS OF THE NEW YORK STATE ENVIRONMENTAL CONSERVATION LAW WHEREAS, the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation has proposed to amend Part 673 and portions of Parts 608 and 621 of Title 6 of the Official Compilation of Codes, Rules and Regulations of the State of New York (6 NYCRR), regulations requiring dam owners to prepare safety programs including inspections, monitoring, maintenance and operation, and emergency plans, where failure of the dam could cause personal injury, substantial property damage or substantial natural resource damage, and WHEREAS, all types and sizes of dams, estimated to be 6,800 in number statewide, be they for the purposes of, but not limited to, flood prevention, fire protection, natural resource enhancement, recreation, industrial and agricultural, and all types of property owners, including, but not limited to, public, municipal, organizational, commercial and private, may be affected by the proposed regulations to as yet undetermined degrees and expense, and WHEREAS, the terminology and definitions in the proposed regulations may lead to confusion, subjective classifications, an actual failure to provide safety, inconsistency between NYSDEC’s regional offices, wasted expenses, and probable litigation, and WHEREAS, there are substantive issues in the proposed regulations including, but not limited to, the use of hazard classifications as written, a lack of comprehensive communication and notification processes, unclear decision authority over engineering standards and solutions, financial security and it applicability in instances of multiple landowner cases, limited financial and technical resources to address the proposed requirements and action plans, and WHEREAS, the address and treatment of dam safety using the approach set forth in the proposed regulations may require, but have not been subjected to an Environmental Impact Statement, to accurately assess ownership, locations, and dam use, age, condition and possible classification(s), in order to examine the cost-benefit of various safety approaches, costs, and possible affects on the environment and communities.

DISCUSSION: Legislator Larison stated that he has been working on this for about six months. The new regulations are detrimental to property owners. This could potentially bankrupt some folks. These funds should come from the government. Legislator Fagan asked if this resolution was formulated or did it come from an organization.

REPORT ON STANDING COMMITTEES: Legislator Bleiler reported on the Public Safety/Criminal Justice Committee. He gave an update on the State Wide Wireless Network by reporting that the data from the tests are being reviewed. We may hear something in May. He is pleased that we passed the Sex Offender Watch Program agreement. Legislator Fagan reported that relative to the two Resolutions for Waneta & Lamoka Lakes and treatment, the Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC) will determine if the applications are complete. He asked the Lakes District to co-chair an open house with DEC. This was held last Wednesday from 6:00–9:00 p.m. They had in excess of one hundred and fifty people at the meeting. The manufacturer of the chemical and application company was there with a boat to show how it will be applied. They have six hundred and seventy signatures expressing their approval. On April 21, 2008, DEC should receive comments and then a decision will be made. He hopes to have the approval soon and be able to start in early May. COUNTY ADMINISTRATOR’S REPORT: Administrator O’Hearn reported that the Sex Offender Watch system has a cost associated with it of $3,500.00. He has met with the three school superintendents from Watkins Glen Central School, Odessa Montour Central School and Bradford Central School and they are all interested and willing to contribute towards the funding for this program. If that is the case, it does not appear that there will be a local share required from the County. He also reported that they only received on bid for the Transportation Services from First Transit. He met with First Transit last week and they are receptive with the cost concerns. They have three action items to look into and then they will get back to us by the end of April. They are the cost if Schuyler County provided the fuel, a facility to insure the maintenance. They will recalculate the cost accordingly. He hit a road block regarding the school participation. He also reported that he and some others including the temporary Purchasing Specialist, Jerry Smyder, met with KVS to discuss an electronic Purchase Requisition proposal. He is looking to secure funds for this system. In regards to the Public Works Facility, the Village of Watkins Glen is in an immediate need and they are still anticipating the award notification from the Shared Municipal Services Incentive (SMSI) grant in the amount of $500,000 that they applied for. If successful, we will need to seriously look into this. The Village is ready and willing to proceed as a partner or as stand alone. He reported that the Real Property Grant in the amount of $100,000 has been secured. He then thanked the Legislative Body for their participation with the County Government Week last week.

PUBLIC HEARING IN REGARDS TO AUTHORIZING A CONVEYANCE OF SURPLUS REAL ESTATE TO THE SCHUYLER COUNTY LOCAL DEVELOPMENT CORPORATION (SCLDC):

151 PROCEEDINGS OF THE YEAR 2008 Jim Howell spoke as a Village of Montour Falls resident and as a member of the Village of Montour Falls Planning Commission. He sees a lot of good things happening in Montour Falls. Along with that he feels the Rural Urban Center is a key component to our progress in the Village. He asked the legislators if they could convey what the current status of the building is. Administrator O’Hearn explained that the purpose of this action today is to further the efforts in the Village of Montour Falls with economic development. We are limited the either an auction to the highest bidder or do this. We have been very clear to have it be a positive impact on the Village. Given the limitations that exist under county law, the Legislature has decided to transfer the two buildings to a body such as a Local Development Corporation (LDC). The Schuyler County Local Development Corporation (SCLDC) was formed by the SCOPED board. It was done as an economical development move. They will accept the proposal and dictate office space, retail, mixed use interest with appropriate use. He feels there will be a great outcome with this process. There is already interest in both properties and he feels they will return them both to the tax tolls and generate an economic impact to the Village. Mr. Howell said in dealing with the Montour House, he feels a very practical use is residential or professional offices. They would be a great fit for the building. It would be wonderful for the neighborhood. He supports the efforts and is anxious to see it return to the tax rolls. He is very pleased. RESOLUTION NO. 171 Motion by Bleiler, Second by Field.

Rosno as Interim Probation Director, to be paid $200 weekly in addition to his regular salary for the additional duties and responsibilities, effective April 30, 2008 until such time as a new Director assumes the position or other arrangement are made, funding available in the 2008 Probation budget account no. 3140.100. DISCUSSION: Legislator Fagan asked how things will work once the test results come in for the Probation Director position. Gail Hughey, Human Resources Director, explained that only three people took the exam and they are three County Probation Officers. If they all pass the exam, one of them has to be chosen for the job. If one of them declines the position, then the list becomes invalid and advertising for the position can be done. County Administrator O’Hearn explained that Chris realizes he has to compete for the position, this action today does not guarantee him the job. We had anticipated the test results prior to Ron’s retirement becoming effective. Administrator O’Hearn feels this salary recommendation is adequate for the salary of the position and job responsibilities. Vote: 6-0.

152 RE: and

SCHUYLER COUNTY LEGISLATURE ACCEPT PROPOSAL AND AUTHORIZE CONTRACT WITH FIRST TRANSIT WHEREAS, Resolution No. 44-08 authorized the Request for Proposals for Transportation Services,

WHEREAS, there was only one bid received from First Transit, and WHEREAS, the County Administrator has negotiated an agreement with First Transit to provide commuter services from Schuyler County to Ithaca, and WHEREAS, the cost of said agreement is projected to be $189,000 to be offset by fare box charges and revenues. NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED, that the Schuyler County Legislature hereby accepts the proposal from First Transit and authorizes the Chairman of the Legislature to execute a contract with First Transit to provide transportation services from Schuyler County to Ithaca for the term July 1, 2008 through December 31, 2008, funding available in the 2008 budget account no. 5630.400-Transportation-Bus Operations; subject to approval of the Schuyler County Attorney. DISCUSSION: Legislator Marcellus sees that this service is not being used much and asked what changes are being made in the service provided. Administrator O’Hearn stated that the service is being reduced. There is a reduction in service with a cost increase. Legislator Marcellus asked about a letter we had generated to the State asking for assistance. Administrator O’Hearn followed up on it and was told it was never received. The State is sympathetic and is working with us, however there are some concerns relative to the span of life for buses, terrain, route we would have to run, etc. The bid proposal was originally higher. They negotiated some changes by cutting out parts of the proposal to get where we are now. He has continued to discuss the changes in the numbers to get us where we are now. The number we have here could be higher if more mechanical problems are experienced with the fleet. There may be a better way of doing this. Legislator Fagan the proposal for the Public Hearing is $130.00 per month. This increased by $58.00 per month. It would generate about $25,000 on a 6 month basis. It would also equal 50 percent from each riders. We could ultimately loose riders from Chemung route. There have been discussions regarding car pools and a Van Program. He feels this is a dynamic situation and it needs to be expressed to the riders at the Public Hearing. The cost of $100,000 local share will increase to $177,000 next year and will continue to increase year after year. It is a very difficult situation. Legislator Marcellus asked if the T-Cat would run all the way over here. Administrator O’Hearn stated that the current commuters are twelve month employees in this contract and this proposal only buys us six months. If we discontinue the service, we need to make it affective January 1, 2009. Legislator Marcellus said if there is a need for it now there will also be in the future. These runs are for a major employer in Ithaca. He feels they might gain more riders if they went a different direction. Administrator O’Hearn asked John Reel from the New York State Department of Transportation if he had anything to add. Mr. Reel said they have to figure in the cost of diesel fuel too. This is part of the cost of service and becomes part of the contract. It is what it is. Vote: 7-0. RESOLUTION NO. 240 motion by Fagan, Second by Field. RE: SET PUBLIC HEARING DATE FOR A PROPOSAL TO INCREASE THE FIRST TRANSIT BUS TRANSPORTATION FARES WHEREAS, Schuyler County has experienced a substantial increase in the cost to provide public transportation, and WHEREAS, said increase was unplanned and unbudgeted, and WHEREAS, it is the desire of the Schuyler County Legislature to enact a fare increase to achieve a more equitable distribution of an increased local cost for this service, and WHEREAS, the proposed fare increase apportions are approximately 50% of the additional cost to the users of the transit system, and WHEREAS, such an increase requires a public hearing to be held. NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED, that a public hearing shall be held on Monday, July 14, 2008 at 7:00 p.m. in the Legislative Chambers, County Office Building, 105 Ninth Street, Watkins Glen, NY. Vote: 7-0. RESOLUTION NO. 241 Motion by Larison, Second by Fagan.

Richardson as Confidential Secretary to the Sheriff at an annual salary of $35,600.00 effective July 7, 2008, said position is in Grade D of the Management/Confidential Salary Plan. Vote: 5-0. PUBLIC PARTICIPATION: None. County Administrator O’Hearn updated the Legislators about having to possibly use the Legislative Chambers and offices on a temporary basis for office space for the County Attorney’s Office. The Civil Defense Room has poor air quality and will not work. The monthly meetings could be held at the Human Service Complex along with the Board Meetings. Legislator Bleiler questioned the fact that the Legislature could hold meeting outside of the County seat. Administrator O’Hearn will confirm that with the County Attorney. Legislator Larison felt it should be okay on a temporary basis. Legislator Marcellus stated that they are expecting employees to show flexability and they should show the same to them. Chairman Gifford aked what was wrong with the air quality. Administrator O’Hearn explained that there are no air vents or recirculation in there. There is no modern ventilation system either. Legislator Larison agrees that it is no place for offices. Also, he feels that space should be used in the event of an emergency in the County. He is in favor of using the chambers. Chairman Gifford felt that was a better reason than the air quality. Legislator Bleiler approves, however is concerned about holding meetings outside of the County seat. Back when Patricia Hastings was Chairman she wanted to hold board meetings in different locations in the towns and villages and the County Attorney informed her she could not. They all agree if it is approved by the County Attorney. Legislator Larison asked where the Clerk and Deputy Clerk will be housed. Administrator O’Hearn explained that they will remain where they are and partitions will be placed accordingly. Legislator Fagan asked when this would occur. Administrator O’Hearn said approximately late August. The August committee meetings will be the last ones held in the Legislative Chambers. Administrator O’Hearn also reported that the Malibar has been sold. The Treasurer has requested the payoff from HUD. The County was the pass through for the HUD funds used to purchase a portion of the Malibar. The loan was paid by Seneca Daysails, with the amount of $43,000 owed yet. They owed $108,000 and need to pay $43,000 to HUD to clear the loan. The County would have $65,000 coming back to us. The Treasurer has spoken to HUD and the funds are to be used for economic development. Administrator O’Hearn recommends handing this over to SCOPED to possibly administer a loan to the new owner. The Meeting adjourned at 9.23 A.M. Jamee L. Mack, Deputy Clerk REGULAR MEETING JULY 14, 2008 The July 14, 2008 Regular Meeting was called to order by Chairman Gifford. The pledge of the Allegiance led by Legislator Yuhasz followed by a moment of Silence. All Legislators were present except Legislator Karius who was excused. County Administrator O’Hearn and Assistant County Attorney Morris were also present. PUBLIC PARTICIPATION: None 7:00 P.M. PUBLIC HEARING IN REGARDS TO A PROPOSAL TO INCREASE THE FARE BOX CHARGES AND LEVEL OF SERVICE PROVIDED BY FIRST TRANSIT TRANSPORTATION FOR SCHUYLER COUNTY: Mr. Mike Scullin stated that he is on a sub-committee that is investigating the transit issues and is also a rider of the bus service. The notice handed out regarding the changes needs clarification of the new service date. Mr. Tom Williams stated that Monday, July 21, 2008 is the effective date. Mr. Scullin then asked a number of questions regarding the flexibility of catching the early bus versus the later bus. Mr. Williams informed the audience that they will still have this ability. Mr. Scullin said he’s like to share some comments he has heard. There are a few people that plan to car pool. Gas prices could change this. Others are looking into the Cornell Van Pool Program. For the most part most will continue to ride the bus. A few riders from

152 SCHUYLER COUNTY LEGISLATURE Chemung will not ride anymore. A number of folks are looking for other forms of transportation. He feels they may lose 1% to 2 % of the riders because of the discontinuation of the Schuyler 3 route. Steve Kimble stated that he is not a Cornell University employee. He rides the bus two to three days a week. He has two kids and the pass will not be cost affective for him. He spoke regarding the 2000 census and that 1,600 citizen’s commute to Tompkins County. He feels the Legislature really needs to look into this transportation issue. Darlene Monroe asked what will happen after December 31, 2008. Administrator O’Hearn said that is a good question, it is unknown. The Legislature will have to look into this. Our Intent is to expand. Unfortunately, this just tackles the next six months. We will continue to look into this and hope to preserve it. Legislator Fagan spoke regarding the County’s local share cost for 2008. It is $50,000 for a new contract with $100,000 for the entire year. The purpose of the rate increase was to share the cost with riders as well as the County. It is projected to go from $25,000 to $50,000 and the County’s share of the burden will be $75,000 to $80,000. Our local share for next year would increase up and above $75,000. This can cause major problems going forward. The service provides transportation for approximately eighty riders. They have to raise the fare cost. Our basic approach is to provide everyone the time to look into alternative transportation. He said it does not look promising that they will be able to continue to provide this bus service. Ms. Valarie Monroe asked when the new fare takes affect. Mr. Williams said August 1, 2008. Ms. Sue Snyder said she is not sure where to go at this point to pick up the bus, Alpine, Mecklenburg, Montour or someplace else. She feels safety should be something to look at. She said it is not safe riding the bus as it is now. Sometimes it is standing room only. Ms. Monroe said they pay for seats to set in, not tile on the floor to stand on. Ms. Monroe mentioned the all access pass that Cornell employee’s have and they don’t pay anything for the bus service. She asked if the Enfield bus run will be stopped. Administrator O’Hearn said he has not looked at the actual routes. Ms. Penny Given stated that she always rides the early bus. When she gets on in the morning and in the evening, there is standing room only at this point. The trip is about forty minutes. Administrator O’Hearn said this may be a route that gets cut. You need to understand that the all access pass is not paid for by the employee, but by the Cornell. Mr. George Maylor asked if there is any easy solution rather than raise the bus fare. He also wanted to know who owns the buses. Have we ever looked into getting our own busses and drivers? Administrator O’Hearn explained that Chemung County owns the buses. These buses will be transferred to Schuyler County. The cost to buy buses and employ drivers is not a better solution at this time. Mr. Williams, from Chemung Transit, spoke up regarding the ownership of the busses and going forward. Ms. Susan Argetsinger said she has ridden the bus for over sixteen years. She has concerns with work schedules and she understands that we are in a state of flux at this point. We need mass as well as public transportation. New riders are increasing. Present riders may not continue. But, new riders will replace them. She hopes that everything and all aspects will be considered. Ms. Darlene Monroe asked about the parking at the Rural Urban Center. What happens if the building gets sold? Will parking still be available there? Administrator O’Hearn said they expect that this building will sell before the end of the year. There will always be parking at the Human Service Complex available. These discussions need to take place yet. Mr. Scullin feels they need to keep something going on, one way or the other. Ms. Kim Dickens has ridden the busses as of May. She said by the time the bus hits the Enfield stop there is only standing room only left. Seventy some people ride this bus just to and from. She feels that the count data is tragically wrong. Mr. Williams said the ridership shows about seventy-five to eighty riders. Ms. Donna Lodge said she has two other concerns. She stands at the Burdett Fire Station and sees a Gadabout bus every day come into Schuyler County. Who pays for it and why are they coming in Schuyler County? Administrator O’Hearn said Gadabout serves special needs transportation. They are not receptive to partnering with us. The parking downtown and at Cornell is an issue. Cornell may likely institute a van program soon. Ms. Darla Hill asked where this will leave the bus service. Administrator O’Hearn said it is his understanding that it will be operated by T-Cat and not restricted to Cornell Employees. Ms. Hill said she likes

151 PROCEEDINGS OF THE YEAR 2008 the bus service. She doesn’t want to have to worry about the driver of the van pool nor does she want the responsibility of driving the van. Mr. Tom Perell said in his opinion, this is a service and not something that is owed to us. He would like to see the service continue. He wants to reinforce the fare increase. We pay for seats, heat and air conditioning. These buses don’t currently have all of this. He appreciates the service and is willing to pay for it. But, wants comfort and safety. Ms. Valarie Monroe asked when all of this will this be decided. In January will fares go up again? Chairman Gifford stated that they do not know. It is still being debated. Ms. Denise Clark asked Mr. Williams a direct question regarding the purchase of the bus passes. She receives conflicting information when the office is called. She is told to talk with the bus driver. Mr. Williams said they will have to sit down and talk about this with the County. Drivers are not supposed to handle the cash. Administrator O’Hearn agreed that this will have to be addressed. Ms. Denise Clark asked if passes could be bought locally. Administrator O’Hearn said they would have to look into this. Legislator Bleiler said they agree and understand the transportation system has not been adequate now. The costs are unrealistic. We have looked at a lot of options. They too are not realistic. Our only choice was to bid this out. The point is there has to be a better solution. T-Cat will not negotiate with us. We have a few months and we will continue to look into this. Legislator Marcellus said he has to admit that he was very skeptical about the bus service. So, one day he followed one. It went north empty, stopped in Burdett and six to eight people got on there. He then questioned the usage. He is not sure what our other alternatives are. Cheaper fuel maybe. Who knows, maybe natural gas. He thanked all for coming. The Legislature knows it is an important issue and will keep their thoughts in mind going forward. Chairman Gifford reiterated Legislator Marcellus’s comment and also thanked everyone for coming.

DISCUSSION: Chairman Gifford explained that they need to do this designation because time is of the essence due to the September 5th New York State deadline. Chamber Interim President, Max Neal, has promised to have their proposed plan for increased funding submitted in September. Legislator Fagan suggested that we continue with the Resolution with just a one-year term and discuss it further at a later date. Legislator Marcellus asked how the parameters for their plan are set. Legislator Fagan said they have discussed their plan and it is due to us in September. Legislator Marcellus asked if she is working from a set of plans from the Legislature. Chairman Gifford said yes. Legislator Fagan said they have concerns and one of them is the Visitor Center. The need for it and no movement forward to resolve the need. Rather than dictate to them, we need to see what their vision is. County Administrator O’Hearn said part of the plan for the new Director is to develop a strategic plan for the Chamber. Legislator Fagan said the appointment of the new Director is a major guide post of anxiety or lack there of. I think she can do the job, she is a very intelligent lady. Legislator Marcellus questioned the room tax the new Hotel would generate. He recalls at least a six digit figure of $300,000.00 in room tax per year.

He asked if the County has ever funded them. Administrator O’Hearn said not that he is aware of. There are also issues with the Chamber site being so small. Chairman Gifford stated that this is one new charge for the new Director. The funds provided must be accounted for as well as well spent. They will show results of the funding spent. Legislator Marcellus asked if it makes sense that all funds go into tourism. Administrator O’Hearn said at least $100,000.00 must go into County Tourism, arts and culture events funded with TPA funds first. We have a small pot of money compared to other TPA’s. Legislator Marcellus asked if the Chamber rents the building they are in. Administrator O’Hearn said no, they do not, they own it. Legislator Marcellus asked if the Chamber had considered expanding the building. O’Hearn said yes, this has been considered. He recommends the one-year approach for now. This gives the Legislature control over the expenditure of funds. Knowing that their performance is measured and evaluated. At this point the Chamber has demonstrated their responsibility to take direction from the Legislature. Legislator Marcellus asked if designating 50% more than last year make sense. Is this wise to take a portion of the revenue and fund events? Chairman Gifford said no. We do this with the TPA. Legislator Marcellus said if we get a windfall, why hand the entire amount over. O’Hearn said we can make the decision year to year. This is only a one-year agreement. Legislator Fagan said they are going to request a specific plan of how funds had been spent. With a 15% increase from last year and the new hotel project, he expects the figure to be $300-350,000.00. O’Hearn said he budgeted $350,000.00 for next year. Vote: 5-0.

NEW BUSINESS: None UNFINISHED BUSINESS: None REPORT ON STANDING COMMITTEES: Legislator Larison reported that he will be attending a meeting with the Soil & Water Conservation District employees in Old Forge. On Thursday he will be attending the Susquehanna River Basin Commission meeting. Has concerns relative to the Marcellus Shale digging. Legislator Bleiler reported on the Public Safety/Criminal Justice Committee. The state wide wireless network had failed their testing. The Comptroller recommended abandoning Ma-COM. They have forty-five days to correct the deficiencies. October 15th is the date for a new report to be issued. One deficiency is timeliness. This should have been completed in June 2007. Ma-COM has not yet been paid. Unless they file bankruptcy, the State will be having them continue to work on it until it is right. He also reported that the Governor has put together another commission to discuss property tax. He thinks that is the perfect time. The Governor wants a cap and he thought the Legislators would come up with a bill. Instead the Governor is calling for more hearings. There are two bills to eliminate property taxes in the Legislature right now, however these bills would not allow for the Assembly and Senate to be able to send rebates out to people and make themselves look good. The biggest problem with this act would be the Teacher’s union. He recommended that the public write to their congressman, Legislator, Senators, etc. and tell them not to put a cap on property tax but to eliminate it and have it paid for out of our income taxes. Legislator Fagan said last month he reported the success of the treatment on Waneta Lake was good. Cornell University’s study shows the growth on Waneta Lake the largest. The Sonar test showed reduction, this last treatment did not impact the native plants. Most growth now is being caused by Zebra muscles. In some areas the native plant growth is too much. DEC should give us a passing grade in terms of controlling evasive species. COUNTY ADMINISTRATOR’S REPORT: Administrator O’Hearn handed out the new On-Site Installer Newsletter from Watershed, on file in the Legislative Office. He commended Tim Hicks for the publication. He also reported that the Public Access Channel in Schuyler County has had much discussion. The plan is to activate the channel more fully. He has challenged County departments for a weekly show with Time Warner managing and controlling the content. It is an opportunity to promote County programs. He also reported that the T-Cat meeting on transportation has been postponed again. They seem to be in the middle of contract negotiations.

151 PROCEEDINGS OF THE YEAR 2008 “ACKNOWLEDGE APPOINTMENT OF VOTING MACHINE CUSTODIAN – BOARD OF ELECTIONS” WHEREAS, both Resolution No. 306-08 and Resolution No. 374-08 state that David Stamp and John Compton have both resigned as Voting Machine Custodians, and WHEREAS, both David Stamp and John Compton did not officially resign and the Board of Elections requires David Stamp’s additional knowledge and expertise as an extra custodian for this upcoming election and he has agreed to do so, and WHEREAS, this being the case, both Resolutions need to be amended to reflect this correction so that David may be compensated for his work. NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED, that Resolution No. 306-08 be amended to remove the first Whereas clause and have the first Whereas clause read as follows in bold: “WHEREAS, the Board of Elections is in need of an additional Voting Machine Custodian for the remainder of the year and Ted Carleton is willing to and is certified.”, and BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED, that Resolution No. 374-08 be amended to remove the first Whereas clause and have the first Whereas clause read as follows in bold: “WHEREAS, the Board of Elections is in need of an additional Voting Machine Custodian for the remainder of the year and Dennis L.

David Stamp has offered to help for this election only. In order to clear the record in the Resolution the two in the minutes need to be changed to reflect that David never resigned so that he may be compensated for his services this week and next. Vote: 7-0. RESOLUTION NO. 399 Motion by Marcellus, Second by Larison. RE: RESOLUTION IN OPPOSITION OF NEW STATE RETIREMENT REPORTING REGULATIONS WHEREAS, the New York State Comptroller, Thomas P. DiNapoli, is proposing new reporting regulations that he feels will increase accountability and transparency in how information is reported to the Retirement System for local elected and appointed officials, and WHEREAS, said new proposed reporting regulations would be a significant bureaucratic burden and constitute an incursion into the principle of separation of powers among the co-equal branches of government, and WHEREAS, said proposed regulations would be at odds with some governmental basics, for example an elected official’s salary is part of the position and not dependent upon hours worked, and WHEREAS, elected officials exist in the capacity 24 hours a day and do not fall under a “standard work day”. NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED, that the Schuyler County Legislature hereby opposes the new proposed reporting regulations for local elected and appointed officials, and BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED, that a certified copy of this Resolution be sent to the Office of the New York State Comptroller. DISCUSSION: The Clerk of the Legislature reported that the State Comptroller is proposing new regulations relative to reporting time for elected and appointed officials that are in the State Retirement System. She explained that the District Attorney, County Clerk, Treasurer and Sheriff, along with the four legislators that currently report their time, will have to report three months worth at the beginning of their four year term and turn it into to her for certification. She then has to turn it into the State. This is just a proposal right now that would be effective January 1, 2009. The Legislature would have to pass two Resolutions in January, one at the Organizational Meeting setting a standard work week for all elected and appointed officials and one at the Regular Meeting of the Legislature identifying those who will be turning in their time to the Clerk. Right now there is a forty-five day comment period on the proposed new regulations. The Clerk then read from a letter that the County Attorney had written to the four Elected Officials. The Legislators wished to do a Resolution to submit to the State Comptroller during this comment period in opposition of the new regulations.
