Supervisor's Update- February 15th, 2019

The snow earlier this week knocked us for a bit of a loop and we've been playing catch-up ever since! Our Tuesday night meeting was canceled due to the icy weather and we moved some of the agenda to a Special Meeting this morning, but we moved the Work Session regarding the Homestead Study to Tuesday, February 19th. The study, which the Board requested in 2018, was posted last week and we have invited some of the study authors to come and walk us through it. If you would like to join us, we will be at the Courthouse on Spring Street beginning at 7:30PM-- if you are not available to join us in person, you can stream the meeting live through the Town website or catch up the next day on the Town's YouTube channel.

 

 

In the meanwhile, I have been making the rounds this week as I advocated for our Town at the state and county level. On Monday, I joined Mayor Victoria Gearity and members of the Westchester Municipal Officials Association to attend the New York Council of Mayors Legislative Conference in Albany, where we were able to speak with our legislators and fight for the AIM funding that the Governor's proposed State budget is set to eliminate. For the Town of Ossining, we receive roughly $152,000 each year of AIM funding which is applied to offset some of our General Fund spending. If the State does not restore this to us in the budget, our taxpayers will have to make up the difference in their property taxes. We are in a position now where we are feeling squeezed from both sides-- while the tax cap is a good idea in theory, it is making us get more creative every year doing more with less. If the State is going to, at the same time, cut the very small stream of revenue they provide to us, they are in effect forcing us to raise property taxes on the local level to make up for the loss.

 

On Wednesday night, I attended the Eagle Scout Court of Honor in Briarcliff where Troop 18's Aiden Case, Sean Curvan and Jackson Ubriaco were recognized for their significant accomplishments-- each contributed an Eagle Scout Project to Ossining, at St. Ann’s, outside the Ossining Recreation Center, and at Teatown.
