VIA TELECONFERENCE
 

PRESENT:
Richard Hanse, Supervisor
Patrick Kennedy, Councilman
Michael Veeder, Councilman
Thomas Burke, Councilman
Linda Wilkinson, Councilwoman
Bambi Hotaling, Town Clerk

GUESTS: Gabe Wapner (via phone call)

Supervisor called the meeting to order at 1:18 pm with a roll call.

The advertised teleconference was not broadcast due to technical difficulties. Board
Members present at the Town Clerk’s Office were Hanse, Kennedy, and Burke. Veeder and
Wilkinson called in. Gabe Wapner was also able to call in. Supervisor contacted Mrs. Meier to
Inform her of the technical difficulties. Town Clerk contacted Carol Metz, Patrick Doyle, and
Gabe via email to make them aware of the issues as well. Patrick Doyle called in to Councilman
Burke as the meeting was adjourned.

A motion to accept the minutes of March 10 was made by Patrick Kennedy seconded by Michael Veeder and duly carried.

Report from EMS Chief Myrdycz was read by the Town Clerk as follows: responded to 77 calls in the month of April, down 12 calls from last year. Completed CARES provider request fund today. Estimated loss of revenue for March is $7,950.04 and April’s estimated loss of revenue is $10,221.48.

Report from Highway Superintendent Ross was read by the Town Clerk as follows: the roads have been swept; new radios have been installed in the trucks; construction of the salt shed will begin next week. The full crew is back to work and are now working 10-hour days (off on Friday).

Correspondence was received from Young/Sommer LLC regarding Flint Mine Solar. A complaint letter was received from William Schnare regarding opening burning in Earlton on Route 81 and the stock piling of junk. Also complained of “growing” junkyard in the old Manly Hillicoss pit. The Town received Greene County Solar Facility (Hecate) supplement to their application. It was suggested that Mr. Schnare call DEC regarding open burning; the Town does not regulate that.

Supervisor reported that we are progressing with the appropriate steps regarding the camp/church property in Earlton. We must start the process from scratch, a letter has been sent. Linda asked if it has been placed back on the tax rolls – it has as they did not apply for their exemption.

Supervisor was happy to report that after more than 18 months of negotiations with the Department of Corrections and Community Supervision they have come to an agreement for ambulance services. Payments as follows: $400 for Basic Life Support (BLS) and $560 for Advanced Life Support (ALS), with $9.00 per mile for transportation. Prior to this agreement our reimbursement was $123.78 for BLS and $144.14 for ALS and mileage reimbursement of $2.11. A motion to authorize Supervisor Hanse to execute the agreement with DOCCS was made by Patrick Kennedy seconded by Thomas Burke and duly carried.
Ayes: 5 – Hanse, Burke, Kennedy, Veeder, Wilkinson

It was noted that approximately 20% of our calls are to the prison.

Supervisor also reported that the process of connecting residents on Kings Road to the new water main that has been installed to serve the Greene County Jail is almost complete and the line should be supplying water to residents within a week or two. The new main will replace a line
that is seriously deteriorated and has required the expenditure of thousands of dollars in repairs over the years. Rick also said that he is looking into the feasibility of connecting residents with the sewer line that has been installed to serve the jail as well.

General Fund and Highway bills in the amount of $20,453.03 were audited on abstract #6, voucher numbers 2020-356 through 2020-416.

Linda asked about getting the building sanitized and deep cleaned, she has concerns that it is not being cleaned the way it should. Rick reported that things are being cleaned – high touch areas are wiped down, and the trash is taken out. Proper precautions such as wearing masks, social distancing, and hand sanitizing are being practiced. Currently the building is not opened to the public and is not fully staffed so Rich and Betty have not been cleaning. Rick will ask Rich to start coming back in once a week to clean.

Mike asks that we be mindful spending during these uncertain times – hold off on “wants”.

Pat thinks we should be prepared to face serious financial shortfalls.

Tom feels things are political, we have a good budget which will have to be monitored.

Rick is not confident in the budgeted amount for mortgage tax, the numbers are not going to be what we expected.

At 1:39 pm Thomas Burke made a motion to adjourn the meeting which was seconded by Michael Veeder and duly carried.

Supervisor asked Nadine to explain the availability issue with the 2020 Ambulance. Ford was not able to build the 2020 chassis prior to their plant being closed due to COVID-19 and will not be available until approximately wintertime. They cannot wait until winter and would like to take a 2019 chassis that AEV has in stock. The price would remain the same, but they would be losing the navigation system. Councilman Veeder stated a navigation system could be obtained from Walmart for about $139. In lieu of the navigation system the ambulance will be equipped with an oxygen tank lift system and decontamination light. Councilman Kennedy asked about the retrofitted stretchers; Nadine said they would still be available and fit.

Rick has worked out a plan with Civil Service, the union and our labor attorney to provide for back-up drivers in the event we need them due to the virus. The board was provided with the memorandum of agreement via email. Civil Services has simplified the hiring process, and, in the event, we need to, will work with local fire companies to hire drivers.

Meeting was opened to the public.

Mrs. Meier read and distributed a letter on behalf of Frank and Linda Drewello.

Mrs. Agovino addressed the board stating that the only constant in life is change. She suggests that moving forward the Town should readdress the local law. So much money and time has been spent on preventing the inevitable. She does not believe it was the intent of the board to cause friction between neighbors.

Supervisor stated that under the Accelerated Renewable Energy Growth and Community Benefit Act it [solar] is likely to come and the Town will have no say in the matter.

Patrick Doyle gave an update on the Flint Mine project. They will most likely stay in the Article 10 process as they are already three years in. He once again related that Flint Mine would prefer to work with the Town and the community to provide well sited solar. Most communities want renewable energy.

Gabe Wapner gave an update on the Hecate project. They have received their deficiency letter and are in the process of addressing it. They also anticipate remaining in the Article 10 process. They are hoping their application will be deemed complete in the next 1-3 months.

Carol Metz addressed the board and asked that everyone sign a petition against the Athens Waterfront Project. For more information people can go to the Sleepy Hollow Face Book Page and the Athens Community Board.

Highway Superintendent Ross reported that it has been a quiet winter. They are working on equipment. Larry submitted his 284 agreement which was reviewed by the board. A motion to accept the agreement as presented by the Highway Superintendent was made by Patrick Kennedy seconded by Linda Wilkinson and duly carried.
Ayes: 4 – Hanse, Kennedy, Veeder, Wilkinson Absent: 1 – Burke

EMS Chief Myrdycz was not present but previously advised they had 90 calls in February. It was also noted that delivery of the new ambulance has been delayed from March until May.

Helen Meier asked how many of those calls were to the prison. Rick was uncertain of that number but did related that the taxpayers are subsidizing EMS calls to the correctional facilities.

Councilwoman Wilkinson reported that she and Karen Pautz, who is the bookkeeper, and also her daughter, met with the insurance broker, Whitney from Marshall & Sterling. Linda noted that Councilman Burke is also on the insurance committee but was not available to meet. They reviewed over twenty health insurance plans. They felt the MVP plan is not feasible and Empire has a much higher cost. Linda is recommending that the Town renew with CDPHP (8% increase) as it is very similar to what we have now and most in line with the union contracts. Dental and vision plans will remain the same with no increase. Michael Veeder made a motion to accept the health insurance renewal plan with CDPHP which was seconded by Linda Wilkinson and duly carried.
Ayes: 4 – Hanse, Kennedy, Veeder, Wilkinson Absent: 1- Burke

Rick reported that the Town has received an A+ rating which will be helpful in securing a favorable interest rate on our bond.

A motion to approve the budget transfers as presented was made by Patrick Kennedy seconded by Michael Veeder and duly carried.

A motion to accept the February Justice reports was made by Linda Wilkinson seconded by Michael Veeder and duly carried.

Councilman Veeder questioned a bill for the EMS Station – a service call due to no heat. Mike feels the bill is excessive. No action was taken but Rick will reach out to them.

Mrs. Agovino stated that she attended the recent planning board meeting. She indicated that there is a proposed wedding venue on Route 385 (they had no issue with solar) and a bus depot coming in on Route 9W. In the scheme of planning, Route 9W should be more appropriately zoned.

Carol Metz addressed the board thanking them for proper siting. There are differences of opinions on the matter and sales have been lost in Sleepy Hollow.

Gabe Wapner gave an update on the Hecate project. They are moving forward with the process. They updated their site plan based on feedback – decreased the number of panels, the project will be tucked away and not seen from Route 385. He will be happy to discuss the changes with anyone who is interested.

Patrick Doyle gave an update on the Flint Mine project; their application still has not been submitted.

Helen Meier asked if the Town was seeing that the fire company gets a special washer and dryer to clean their turnout gear. The cost is approximately $15,000. Presently D.M. Hamilton lets Hose 3 use their machines; this issue can be revisited next year. The only change to this year’s contract was the mandated cancer insurance that the Town is required to pay for both fire companies.

Mrs. Meier questioned why Earlton gets the same amount of money as Hose 3 even though their call volume is less. Supervisor stated that is not true and that there is some confusing/misleading information being passed around on Facebook.
