RE: RESOLUTION OPPOSING THE STATE TAKING OF WESTERN’S PARTICPATING
        MUNICIPALITY’S ASSETS IN THE WESTERN REGIONAL OFF-TRACK BETTING
        CORPORATION
        WHEREAS, in September 1973, nine western New York counties established the Western Regional
Off-Track Betting Corporation, as enabled by state law, and
        WHEREAS, these municipal “stockholders” chose to exercise that local option to form such a
corporation that dictated local control by those municipalities over such gaming activities in their respective
communities, and
        WHEREAS, the start-up costs of this enterprise were funded solely by these initiating counties from
their own treasuries of taxpayer money and represented no state money nor allowed for any state confiscation of
this purely local venture, and
        WHEREAS, since those nine counties voted to form Western Regional Off-Track Betting Corporation,
an additional eight western New York counties have joined them in the local control of such gaming activities
that has since 1973 generated over $200 Million in operating and surcharge revenues to the taxpayers of those
participating municipalities, and
        WHEREAS, now, the incoming Governor and both houses of the State legislature are publically
proposing a taking of Western OTB’s business and its assets by a consolidation of all the regional off-track
betting corporations in this state by some state-sponsored private or quasi-governmental interloper that threatens
a loss of local revenue, independence and local oversight of gaming in our communities, and
        WHEREAS, the participating municipalities of Western as its shareholders have a pro-rata financial
interest in the $39 million of net equity re-invested in its 30-plus corporately-owned branch facilities and the
track and casino at Batavia Downs, and
        WHEREAS, the reality of such state-sponsored consolidation and takeover of the OTB’s would rob
Western’s communities of not only local control but their substantial re-investment of profits to acquire and
maintain such money-making assets.
        NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED, that the Schuyler County Legislature opposes such a
threatened “nationalizing” of Western’s business by New York State.

                                             MARCH 14, 2011

       The March14, 2011 Regular Meeting of the Schuyler County Legislature was called to order at 6:30

O’Hearn were also present.
PUBLIC PARTICIPATION:
        Mr. Paul Marcellus stated that as a hotel owner, at the end of the quarter he did not receive the sales tax
report form from the state in a timely manner and payment was late. He would like to suggest that the sales tax
form and room tax form possibly be posted on our Treasurer’s web page. This would relieve the State and the
Treasurer’s Office as they could be submitted electronically. The burden would then be on the hotel/motel and
B&B owners, not on the State or the County. He also wanted to bring to the Legislature’s attention that he has a
pet peeve regarding the lack of understanding by Planning Boards of an Entrepreneur. There was a situation that
made the papers a week or so ago. He feels they all need to try and find ways to initiate business in the County.
        Mr. Gary Whyman said he recently took advantage of the Freedom of Information Law (FOIL) and had
received the last five years of the County’s Audit reports. He is wondering where to direct any questions he
might have after reading all of them. Chairman Fagan informed him that the Management and Finance
Committee oversee that audit and that he could direct any of his questions to that committee by attending or
submitting his questions to the Clerk of the Legislature. The Clerk then provided the meeting dates and times as
well as provided him with a business card with her email address. Mr. Whyman said he may send any questions
with a representative versus himself. Administrator O’Hearn said that is fine. Legislator Gifford, Chairman of
the Management & Finance Committee also recommend that Mr. Whyman could send the questions a head of
time to the Clerk’s email.

        WHEREAS, three Finger Lakes waterways have thirty six miles of lake shore in parts of Schuyler
County, i.e. Seneca Lake, Cayuta Lake, Lamoka Lake, and Waneta Lake which are State owned public waters
as indicated in State Navigation law, and
        WHEREAS, the New York State Office of Parks, Recreation and Historic Preservation (OPRHP)
Marine Services Division designates the county sheriff to be the point of contact for marine patrols, safety, law
enforcement, boat operators education, salvage operations, inspections and issuance of hull identification
numbers, as well as the sheriffs review/approval of floating object and regatta permits on waterways throughout
New York by Navigation Law, literature both on their OPRHP website, and in their official publications, and
        WHEREAS, it is noteworthy through the enforcement of laws, marine patrols can remove the dangerous
boater from the waterways and sheriff’s officers often are the first responders to 911 calls for incidents on the
                                       PROCEEDINGS OF THE YEAR 2011                                              27

vessel fires, accidents, capsized vessels, stranded boaters, drowning, pollution, search, rescue and recovery, and
        WHEREAS, a portion of vessel registration fees and other finds since 1959 was historically provided as
the State of New York has recognized the need to provide financial encouragement to counties undertaking the
enforcement of the state’s navigation laws and provided 50% reimbursement which was later increased to 75%
and then reduced in 2009 to 50% even though the state chose to increase boater registration fees, but earmarked
the increased boater funds for the state highway and bridge trust find, and
        WHEREAS, revenue for this program is not from property tax payers, but provided exclusively from the
motorboat user fees paid once every three years upon registration and presently these fees generate about $62
million annually to the state of New York of which only about $24 million is needed to pay the statutory
reimbursement statewide to counties and municipalities for costs incurred, and
        WHEREAS, funding to reimburse county sheriffs for marine services was cut in the 2011-12 Executive
Budget proposal released February 1, 2011, where fundamental changes are proposed to repeal sections 79 a
and b from the State Navigation Law, thus eliminating reimbursement to counties effective April 1, 2011
wherein also affecting the “I love NY waterways” boating safety account, and greatly reducing leverage for
federal grant funding to OPRHP from the Coast Guard, and
        WHEREAS, the Governor’s proposed funding cuts also include costs incurred by counties in 2010, for
which $6,949.72 in reimbursement was already submitted as required in 2010 to the NYS OPRHP by the
Sheriff, and will now require Schuyler County taxpayers to absorb, and
        WHEREAS, the Schuyler County Sheriff provides the public with a very important public safety service
by patrolling these waterways, ensuring the safety of both recreational, public and commercial vessels, as well
as providing OPRHP certified instructors for boaters safety operation education where in last three years 421
individuals were taught safe boating by Schuyler County Sheriffs marine patrol unit.
        NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED, that the Schuyler County Legislature urges the Governor to
reconsider the removing of this important financial aid and shifting the entire cost of marine patrol and related
services including boaters safety education to the County of Schuyler property taxpayers, and
        BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED, that this Schuyler County Legislature urges the Governor and the State
Legislature to consider the public safety of lakeside residents, renters, visitors, tourists, and all recreational
boaters and users of the waterways, and realize the detrimental impacts that removing this funding aid will have
on county budgets and restore this valuable historical aid, and
        BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED, that the Clerk shall forward copies of this Resolution to Governor
Andrew M. Cuomo, Lieutenant Governor Robert Duffy, our Assemblyman and Senator, the Senate and

                                         PROCEEDINGS OF THE YEAR 2011                                                     39
Silence. All Legislators were present. County Attorney James Coleman and the County Administrator Timothy
O’Hearn were also present.
PUBLIC PARTICIPATION:
        Ms. Lori Ellison, from the Town of Orange, was here to speak about the Rocky Rooster Bike Track. She
wanted to know the owner can live off the welfare system and yet run a business and make money. She wanted
to know if anyone checks on them. She claimed this person makes her life miserable every day. Chairman
Fagan said the Legislature will make sure someone is notified to investigate.
         Mr. David Scott, Town of Montour Supervisor, was in attendance and wished to invite the two
legislative representatives in his district to their board meeting tomorrow. In relations to the Town of Montour
property tax owners receiving past due notices regarding their taxes, he explained that their Clerk’s father-in-
law had passed away and therefore she did not turn in tax receipts when they were due. He also explained that
the Treasurer’s office has always called in the past when they are ready to receive the receipts. He has talked to
other tax collectors, and this year a call was never made. Over 1,200 mailings were processed and he feels
someone had their blinders on. He felt that someone could have made a call and it could have been avoided.
He has fielded over 150 calls relative to this matter. When he called the Treasurer’s Office Friday afternoon he
was treated rather rudely. He was told by that office that it’s our own town clerk’s fault. There was some
finger pointing going on. The letters sent out would have had to have been done that Thursday morning as they
were postmarked that day. He also does not agree with the County Administrator’s comment on the Odessa
File stating that the cost of postage could be charged to the towns. He has been contacted by the press, but he
has held comment until after tonight. He feels there was a lack of common sense by the Treasurer’s Office
when the entire town of Montour taxes were late. Chairman Fagan apologized on behalf of the County. He also
feels that two phone calls to Montour and Tyrone would have resolved this problem. Instead, the office was
stuffing envelopes and placing postage on them. From a management standpoint he is beside himself that our
Treasurer’s office could not display some common sense. Be that as it may, it is an elected official they have
no control over. He apologized to both towns, and felt it was appalling. Mr. Scott wanted to know if the names
could be taken out of the paper. Administrator O’Hearn said it would be difficult to do a retraction, as they
were following the letter of the law. He said what the Treasurer’s Office did was technically right, ethically and
common sense, no. There are a fair amount of people that are legitimately delinquent with their taxes. Those
who were not delinquent with their taxes should not have their names published. He has learned from this
experience that the County needs to improve the process in the future. Being invited by the Treasurer’s office
to submit your receipts to the County in the past begs a lot of questions. This presents an opportunity to do
something different from this point forward. Let’s review the process and learn from it. In regards to postage,
under normal circumstances a dollar amount is added to that bill that was not paid. For those sent in error he
does not know how they can avoid it, but it will not be passed onto the towns. If the properties were not
supposed to get the bill, the County taxpayers will have to absorb the cost of postage. He would be happy to put
something together to explain this, but both offices are to blame. Mr. Scott pointed out that on your tax bill
you, the taxpayer, have until March 31st to pay it and the Treasurer’s Office did the letters that day and mailed
them that day before the deadline. If we do anything, let’s change that practice. Administrator O’Hearn read
the statute of law. If you take it literally, you really only have until March 17th. The failure to mail the notice
shall not affect interest. If it didn’t get mailed to April 1st or later, it is a courtesy. He felt the first section of the
statute was followed too literally. Mr. Scott suggested the process be changed to follow the statute, as it makes
it clearer. In the future, his Town tax collector will submit receipts to the Treasurer’s office, whether they want
them or not.
         Sarah Haleday, from the New York State Young Republicans wanted the Legislature to know that they
have been awarded a convention and will be spending it in Schuyler County this year. There will be
approximately 100 people here next month at the Watkins Glen International track and then at Castle Grisch.

RE: RESOLUTION URGING THE NEW YORK STATE DEPARTMENT OF ENVIRONMENTAL
        CONSERVATION TO CONTINUE TO FUND THE STORMWATER MANAGEMENT POSITION
        IN REGION 8
        WHEREAS, the Stormwater Management Specialist position for five counties (Chemung, Schuyler,
Seneca, Steuben and Yates) is scheduled for termination at the end of May in Region 8. The loss of this position
would be a major setback for the stormwater management program in our region. The Stormwater Management
Specialist provides training and educational assistance for the State Pollutant Discharge Elimination System
(SPDES) General Permit for Stormwater Discharges from Construction Activity GP-01-l0 and Municipal
Separate Storm Sewer System (MS4s) GP-0-l0.-002, and
        WHEREAS, this position performs SWPP reviews, site inspections, maintains up-to-date knowledge to
the state permit program and technical assistance, which helped make the stormwater program a successful one
in the counties in which this position serves, and
        WHEREAS, the Stormwater Management Specialist is also needed to prevent stormwater related water
quality and quantity problems from expanded gas drilling. This proposed development of shale resources could
involve significant amounts of construction in this area by companies that are not yet familiar with New York’s
stormwater regulations, and
        WHEREAS, steady progress and success toward preventing runoff problems in rural and MS4 areas has
been attributed in part by the availability of trained staff dedicated to stormwater management outreach,
education, and assistance. By providing training, SWPP review, recommendations, site inspections, the
Stormwater Management Specialist has prevented a significant number of violations.
        NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED, that the Schuyler County Legislature encourages the New
York State Department of Environmental Conservation to maintain the Stormwater Management Specialist
position for the five counties (Chemung, Schuyler, Seneca, Steuben and Yates) in Region 8 and to continue the
proactive approach in the stormwater management area by designating the funds produced by the stormwater
permit system to fund this position, and

 NEW BUSINESS:
       The Clerk was seeking a verbal approval to authorize the National Prayer Group to use the Courthouse
lawn on May 5, 2011 to observe the day. The Legislature was okay with this.
       She also wanted to make sure that all legislators received her correspondence on the new Court Security
hours for the Courthouse Complex. The building will open at 9:00 a.m. and close at 5:00 p.m. Chairman Fagan
wanted to know what this meant for employees. The County Administrator explained that he will be meeting
with department heads. Some offices were open at 8:00 a.m. for the public and will not be able to do so without
placing our own security in place. Some counties affected by this change are shutting down from 12:00-1:00
p.m. for lunch and this was a state suggestion. They withdrew that proposal and will be staggering their lunches
now. Some counties are choosing to not be open until 9:15 and close at 4:30 for sweeps to occur in the
buildings prior to opening and closing. We will not.
UNFINISHED BUSINESS: None.
REPORT ON STANDING COMMITTEES: None.
COUNTY ADMINISTRATOR’S REPORT:
       Administrator O’Hearn reported that the sale of the CHAA has received the Department of Health
approval for the management agreement. The tentative date of purchase will be May 2, 2011. They need to
finalize the professional services agreement yet, and the County Attorney is working with their attorney on that.
        He also reported that his office has received a complete application from Watkins Glen International,
Inc. for the mass gathering permit to cover all three of their events that occur between June and December,
2011. The SEQR is unfolding as we speak. He needs to review the application now, and it is about 400 pages

PUBLIC PARTICIPATION:
        Mrs. Charlotte Dickens spoke as a County employee in regards to the smoking ban. She is a non smoker
and feels that passing the legislation on banning smoking on County properties takes away more personal
freedom of our employees and the public. She feels smoking outside does not harm people. Smoking inside
offices is another case. She is very grateful that smoking is not allowed in our offices.

RE: DECLARE A SMOKE FREE CAMPUS AT ALL SCHUYLER COUNTY BUILDINGS
        WHEREAS, the County’s current Smoking Policy complies with the Clean Indoor Air Act 2 and states
that the use of any form of tobacco shall be absolutely prohibited in all County-owned buildings, to include
County–owned vehicles, any means of mass transportation operated by the County, and any other areas where
the use of tobacco is prohibited by fire codes or State regulations, and
        WHEREAS, the Schuyler County Legislature now wishes to prohibit smoking for employees and public
on any campus of any county building for the following reasons:
             Protect the public health, safety and general welfare by eliminating exposure to secondhand
               smoke.
             Acknowledge the need of nonsmokers, especially children, to breathe smoke-free air,
               recognizing the danger to public health which secondhand smoke causes.
             Recognize that the need to breathe air free of the disease-causing toxins in secondhand smoke
               should have priority over the desire and convenience of smoking on the property of county
               buildings.
             Recognize the right and benefit to municipal residents and visitors to be free from unwelcome
               secondhand smoke while on the property of county buildings.
60                                    SCHUYLER COUNTY LEGISLATURE
        NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED, that signs shall be prominently posted upon the entrance to
all parking lots and entrances to all county buildings stating that Schuyler County Offices are Smoke Free and
SMOKING IS PROHIBITED, or NO SMOKING.
DISCUSSION: Legislator Larison said he opposes the smoking ban. He said some employees are addicted to
cigarettes and he feels they need to express the need for a reasonable distance. He does not feel they can
enforce the off property requirement, and he does object to this policy. There may be other counties that have
this, but he does not like it. Legislator Barnes told Legislator Larison that he appreciates his position, however,
he has spoken to a number of employees and they are in support of this ban. He has received very positive
feedback from them. He feels the Legislature is being a leader in this movement and he thinks we will see more
counties come forward with the same policy. We need to look at the future of our children and grand children.
Just last week, there had been two ladies standing outside the building at the Human Services Complex waiting
for the building to open. They were smoking less than 50 feet from the front entrance and the children at the
Schuyler Headstart School were outside right next to them. The 50 feet requirement has been neglected. He is
not saying that it is just employees, it is the public as well. If this was in affect when I witnessed the two ladies
out front he would have approached them and informed them that the County has a non smoking campus now.
Without this policy, how can we discourage this action? Legislator Larison said “I guess we agree to disagree”.
Legislator Halpin said smoking kills. She feels they need to do what they can to help keep people alive.
Chairman Fagan said there are no doubts about the benefits of this policy. Years ago there was opposition and
he feels they need to ban this now. The public has been educated and it is time they do this.

        WHEREAS, on April 11, 2011, Resolution No. 139-11, the Legislature declared its intent to serve as

involved agencies of this intent to serve as lead agency, and

the engineering documents and they have been given to the Health Department also. The areas to be impacted
are traffic management, emergency management services, and law enforcement. This is a SEQR permanent
application. Three events are of a temporary duration. He explained the environmental review process to the

REPORT ON STANDING COMMITTEES:
        Legislator Barnes reported as Chairman of the Public Safety/Criminal Justice Committee. He had
attended a very informative meeting with the Probation Department about their Alternatives to Incarceration
Program. It is very interesting how this program works. He encouraged the press in attendance to inquire about
the program. This program is very well done and he wished it was in existence when he was a Deputy Sheriff.
COUNTY ADMINISTRATOR’S REPORT:
        Administrator O’Hearn said this is the week that the Property Tax Cap is to be enacted by the State
Legislature. NYSAC is reaching out to all elected officials to contact their Representatives and express your
concerns. As it stands right now, this legislation will be adopted without any mandate relief. There will be
action in the Assembly this week. Chairman Fagan said he feels this is the politicians in Albany telling us all to
trust them. We have received nothing from them on this. He feels this is a sham and is strictly political. They
are hand cuffing County’s.

DISCUSSION: Chairman Fagan asked Administrator O’Hearn to speak on this and what he had learned about
the legislation. Administrator O’Hearn cautioned the Legislature to be aware that this legislation is unlike
Florida’s. If an applicant tests positive they are denied any benefits until such time they are enrolled into a

rehabilitation program and they must remain there. Commissioner of Social Services, Bill Weiss, has not been
provided any input on who would pay for the rehabilitation program. He was not even aware of this
requirement. He just wanted to make sure you were all aware. The State of Florida excludes their clients for
one year from receiving benefits. It is quite likely that we, as New Yorkers, will have to pay for this. If the
clients fail to follow the conditions, they are excluded from receiving benefits.

RE: RESOLUTION URGING IMPLEMENTATION OF DRUG TESTING FOR MEDICAID
         APPLICANTS AND RECIPIENTS, TEMPORARY ASSISTANCE APPLICANTS AND
         RECIPIENTS, FOOD STAMP APPLICANTS AND RECIPIENTS, AND SUPPLEMENTAL
         SECURITY INCOME RECIPIENTS AS A PREREQUISITE FOR ELIGIBILITY - TABLED
         WHEREAS, various programs provided by the State of New York now termed “Temporary Assistance,”
and formerly termed Welfare, and administered through the New York State Office of Children and Family
Services and the Office of Temporary Disability Assistance, now cost the taxpayers of the State of New York
approximately $975 million per month in direct benefit payments in the forms of Temporary Assistance, Food
Stamps, and Supplemental Security Income, a figure which excludes administration and personnel costs, and
         WHEREAS, the disbursement of said cases as of May, 2010, places 64% of all recipients of such
services statewide within the City of New York, despite the City of New York only accounting for 43% of the
total population of the State of New York, and
         WHEREAS, the total Medicaid spending for the State of New York in Fiscal Year 2008 was $31 billion
per annum, and
         WHEREAS, the combined expenditures for such social programs as identified within this resolution,
namely Medicaid, Temporary Assistance, Food Stamps, and Supplemental Security Income, total
approximately $43 billion per year, or 32% of total spending by the State of New York, and
         WHEREAS, the 2009 Schuyler County budget included $3,475,000 million in expenditures for
Medicaid, which may be quantified as 37.3% of the County’s property tax levy of $9.3 million, or 37.7% of the
County’s entire revenue from collection of sales taxes, and
         WHEREAS, such expenditures must then be undertaken by the State of New York in a manner that
respects the hard work performed by each and every taxpayer who is forced to contribute, via taxation, to the
social welfare of other citizens, and
         WHEREAS, the only manner such expenditures may be undertaken that honors the work of the
taxpayers is one in which the criminal element and deliberately self-destructive, such as “recreational” drug
users, are excluded from receiving such benefits, as it is unreasonable to expect the hardworking taxpayers to
subsidize such activity, and
         WHEREAS, the Honorable George D. Maziarz, Senator for the 62nd District and Vice President Pro
Tem of the Senate, did propose legislation, titled “An Act to Amend the Social Services Law, in Relation to
People Receiving Public Assistance,” and assigned the bill number S.l74, which prescribes a regimen of drug
testing for applicants and recipients of such benefits as identified in this resolution, and which is not punitive in
its intent, but rather rehabilitative, and
         WHEREAS, member of the Assembly Clifford W. Crouch did submit in the Assembly a companion bill,
numbered A.227, and
         WHEREAS, Senate Bill No. S.174 was referred to the New York State Senate’s Committee on Social
Services on January 5,2011, and has not been acted upon by that Committee, and A.227 was referred to the
New York State Assembly’s Committee on Social Services and held for consideration as of April 12,2011.
         NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED, that the Schuyler County Legislature does hereby urge the
passage by committee and subsequent enactment by a floor vote of S.174, and

the Assembly Michele Titus, Chairwoman of said committee, the Honorable Sheldon Silver, Speaker, and the
Honorable Ronald Canestrari, Majority Leader, and

        BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED, that the Schuyler County Legislature does hereby call upon the entire
Western New York delegation to the New York State Legislature to vote in the affirmative for bills S.174 and
A.227, and for those members of the Western New York delegation in their respective houses’ Majorities to
take such measures as they may in their privileged positions as members of the Majority to force discharge of
said bills from committee and allow for a direct “up or down” vote on the floor, and
        BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED, that the Schuyler County Legislature does hereby urge the Honorable
Andrew M. Cuomo, Governor, to, absent legislative instruction, devise, through executive order, a regimen of
drug tests for social welfare recipients to ensure that the taxpayers are not subsidizing such activities through
social welfare programs, and
        BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED, that the Clerk of the Legislature shall forward copies of this Resolution
to Governor Andrew M. Cuomo, Senate Vice President Pro Tern George D. Maziarz; Senator Mark J. Gristanti;

RESOLUTION NO. 213 Motion by Barnes, Second by Halpin.
RE:     APPOINTMENT AND SET SALARY FOR THE PUBLIC DEFENDER
        WHEREAS, the position of Public Defender is vacant.
        NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED, that this Legislature hereby appoint Attorney Wesley A. Roe
as Schuyler County Public Defender effective July 18, 2011 through December 31, 2011 at an annual salary of
$80,000.00.
DISCUSSION: Chairman Fagan asked County Administrator O’Hearn to provide some input on the candidate.
Administrator O’Hearn advised that the Ad Hoc Committee of the Legislature met to interview one candidate,
Assistant Public Defender, Wesley Roe. The group’s consensus for the purpose of continuity, ease of transition,
and qualifications, was to promote the Assistant Public Defender to the Public Defender position upon his
recommendation. The next step will be for the committee to reconvene and review the applicants for the
Assistant Public Defender position that is now vacant. There is a gap in the office and the work load justifies
this position. During the interview, staffing issues were discussed. Staffing is not adequate to handle the case
loads. He recommends that they act on this now and then move forward with the Assistant Public Defender
position as well. Legislator Larison asked how many applicants there were. Administrator O’Hearn said there
were a total of five. These applicants are interested in the Assistant position. Wesley Roe has also received a
number of calls. He will ask Wes to screen these applicants and bring back to committee the top three or four
candidates for interviewing. The committee will have a good pool of candidates to choose from.
Vote 6-0.
