Laura McKane, Comptroller spoke. She explained that the State has given the             tive
municipalities the authority to offer incentives for retirement. Part A is a targeted
incentive. Part B is based on age and years of service. Part B is strictly up to the
employee to take it. These are tools to use as we go into the budget process.




                                      3   OF   16
                   Regular Board Meeting – August 11, 2010


          This local law needs to be adopted by the end of August. We need to see if we
          can reach a 50 percent savings over a two year period.

          Councilman Majewski made it clear that the only way he would support this is if
Local     we don’t replace the employees. We need to do more with less. We need to look
Law       at the numbers.
“G”
Create
Retire-   Councilman Schaffer agrees. He has been an advocate of cutting the budget.
ment      This may be a way that we can do some hard core cutting. We will take this if it
Incen-    can be beneficial to the Town. We are targeting the higher salaries, there is no
tive      doubt. He won’t vote for it either unless there is a definite savings to the town.
          We will need to cut services. Many people will be upset with their choices. This
          could be positive. We have to do more with less. He wouldn’t trade our workers
          for anything. These guys work. This will be hard on them too.

          The Supervisor then opened this hearing to the public.

          The Supervisor explained that we don’t need to make monetary decisions until
          November. These figures will be used for our budget. We need to save 50% in
          two years. We have established preliminary possibilities for those who may be
          interested.

          Resident: It is mandatory that the employees take this?

          Answer: The employees can back out as well as the Town.

          Supervisor Andreasen: We will target positions not people. There may be
          positions that we will not offer this to.

          Comptroller: The 50 percent savings is in the aggregate. The total number of
          savings for all the positions must be equally to or greater than 50 percent. It is
          based on the total number of the positions and other figures.

          Resident: He would like to see a serious effort to curb equipment purchases.
          There should be sharing of equipment between Parks, Highway and Water. He
          hasn’t seen a serious approach to that.

Hearing or seeing no one wishing to speak the Supervisor closed the Public

PRIVILEGE OF THE FLOOR:

Resident: He has sent emails to the Board and the Engineer concerning the road
ditch and creek at his home.

Supervisor Andreasen some work has been done.

Resident: The Town came there before and still has not fixed the problem. The      Drain-
black top has washed away. Every time it rains the water comes over his lawn.      age
He lives at 20 Brown Road.                                                         issues

Town Engineer: That is a private creek and the Town shouldn’t be in there.

Resident: He is bringing a back hoe in tomorrow and he going to dig the ditch
deeper.

Supervisor Andreasen will go there tomorrow.

Residents came to speak for the motocross track on Tracy Creek Road.
                                                                                   Petition
The Supervisor accepted a petition with 81 names In Favor of Eric Jones and        In
His Dirt Track at 934 Tracy Creek Road to be received and filed by the Town        Favor of
Clerk.                                                                             Dirt
                                                                                   Track
Resident: She and other people were invited to ride at the Joneses. Soon the       Resi-
Police showed up. They left with no complaints. We should be more concerned        dents
about the cars racing up Tracy Creek Road.                                         Speak
                                                                                   in

1981. This is not new. He gave examples of different categories and their          Track
decibel readings. Kids could be doing worse things than ridding. This is a rural
setting.

Resident: He rides at the Jones property. The owners are doing a lot of good
with the land. He pays his taxes too. It’s a shame.




                                     7   OF   16
         Regular Board Meeting – August 11, 2010

Resident: He lives on Mason Road. He feels this is one of the quietest tracks he
has ever been near. 60 is the peak decibel reading by Code. This should be
looked at. A normal conversation is 63. He has heard rumors that they run
bikes at night. That is ridiculous. The lights are not even good enough for that.

Resident: This is a good sport for kids and families.

Resident: He has lived there for 50 years. He would rather see kids doing this
than being in front of a computer. If they are not breaking any laws and then he
should not be harassed by the neighbors. It is perfectly legal.

Resident: He was a nuisance as a child and cut through property so that he could
get to a place to ride his motorbike. No one is cutting through the neighbors
properties. Where do we draw the line? The Jones own property in Vestal too.
If these people are not into these kinds of things they should not live out there.

Resident: The track is directly behind their home. The Joneses have done
everything to be good to the neighborhood. They never ride late at night or early
in the morning and keep it at only 20 minute intervals. They support the Jones

Resident: They have land next door to the track. It is not loud and the dust is
not an issue.

Resident: She and her husband are neighboring property owners and they had a
problem when their own children were riding in their own yard riding. Some one
called the Police. How could it be too loud when they are sitting in their own
home and they didn’t feel it was too loud?

Resident: His boys ride. He has a track on his property. He supports the
Joneses.

Resident: She also supports this. There are bigger things to be concerned about.

Seeing or hearing no one wishing to speak the Supervisor closed the Privilege of
the Floor.
