Richard Masur: Thank you!

Actor Richard Masur currently serves as chair of the Croton Democrats.Dear Editor,

On behalf of the Croton Democratic Committee I want to express our sincere congratulations and thanks to every one of the residents of the Village who voted in last Tuesday’s election. Exercising our right to vote is our most solemn responsibility as citizens and it was heartening to see such historic levels of participation by our fellow Croton residents.

Of course, we wish to express our particular thanks to all of you who saw fit to turn out and vote for the Croton Dems’ endorsed candidates, all of whom won. We were particularly grateful for the tireless efforts of our friends in the Village, especially the Cortlandt/Croton Indivisible group (CCoHope), who did such extraordinary work to support our friend and new State Senator, Pete Harckham. Pete waged decent, respectful, issue-driven campaigns in both the primary and general elections. We are lucky to have him as our new representative in the Senate.

Finally, we are thrilled to announce that, thanks to you, Andy Simmons will be the newest Trustee on the Village Board of Trustees. Returning to the Board will also be Trustee Ann Gallelli, who now has the distinction of being the highest vote-getter of any trustee in history. And congratulations to Sam Watkins, our Village Justice, the highest vote-getter ever… for any Village office. We are grateful that these folks have offered their service to Croton on Hudson.

Richard Masur,
Chair, Croton Democratic Committee

Amy Attias: Vote Ann Gallelli on Tuesday!

To the editor:Sep. 14th LTEs -- AA

I write in support of Ann Gallelli’s candidacy for another term as Trustee in Croton on Hudson. I myself am currently a Trustee and since I began running for that office I have had the honor and pleasure of working with Ann.

As a woman who has often been a mentor for others, when I made the decision to run for elected office I was looking for a mentor myself. Ann gave unstintingly of her time to help me learn about local issues, to navigate the experience of being a candidate, and to learn how to listen more than just advocate for my own position.

Ann’s deep knowledge of the history and background of issues, of the parties and players involved, combined with her generous spirit and wonderful sense of humor, all work to make her a force many look to when important decisions come up. Ann and I don’t agree on every issue – although we agree on many! – but I have been learning from Ann since I first met her many years ago, and continue to look to her example of giving, giving, and giving more, to the community she loves and has served for so long.

I look forward to Ann’s continued service as Trustee. We are all so lucky to have her.

Respectfully,
Amy Attias

Ian Murtaugh: Gallelli+Simmons+Watkins=The Ticket for Croton!

To the Editor,Image result for ian murtaugh croton democrats

I write this letter in total support of the Gallelli/ Simmons/ Watkins ticket on Election Day. While I have known Judge Watkins a very long time, and only just recently met Andy Simmons my purpose here is to praise and support my dear colleague Ann Gallelli.

Almost ten years ago I was first elected to the Board of Trustees. It was then that I really got to know and respect Ann, who was already a legend for her ethics and tenacity. While it is true that this ticket faces no opposition, you need to be present on Election Day. Ann posesses an extraordinary institutional knowledge of our Village’s history and it’s zoning challenges and has a clear vision for our collective future; this needs to be shared with the newer members of the board.

I was a beneficiary of this knowledge and am a better person for it. Thank you Ann!

Brian Pugh: Making Progress on a Green Agenda for Croton

To The Editor:

 

The Village of Croton’s Board of Trustees reviewed various proposed environmental projects in the Village with Lindsay Audin, Sustainability Committee Chair, and Frank Balbi, Superintendent of the Dept. of Public Works.  These promising initiatives include a pilot food scraps recycling program, a community solar array, an electric vehicle charging station and adding electric vehicles to the Village fleet.

 

I look forward to moving forward on new environmental initiatives for our Village. Already, the Village of Croton was designated as a Climate Smart Community by the NYS Department of Environmental Conservation and a Clean Energy Community by the New York State Energy Research and Development Authority (NYSERDA).

 

In the last 12 months, the Village developed a living lighting laboratory in Village hall; enrolled in the 100% green option of the Westchester Power Community Choice Aggregation program (which has been able to consistently beat the average price of power from Con Edison); launched a new Solarize campaign in March that resulted in dozens of new solar energy installations in our community; and established an energy benchmarking policy in August.

 

Many of these projects are grant-funded. In addition, they have the potential to produce long-term savings by reducing energy consumption and reducing the tipping fees for the disposal of solid waste.

 

As always, the Board’s Democratic majority is committed to pursuing environmental progress in a manner that is also economically sound and that provides tangible benefits to our community.

 

Sincerely,

 

Brian Pugh

Ann Gallelli: Keeping You Informed

To the Editor,ann2016
Since last December, the Board of Trustees, along with Village management, has made a concerted effort to provide more and better communications with Village residents.
Last week, the Village unveiled a new, updated website. From this site, residents can more easily access online forms, news of job openings, the latest Newsletter, and recent news about Village government matters. A new feature is the inclusion of quarterly reports from every Village Department. Simply click on the department and select “Quarterly Reports” to find the report you are interested in. Residents are all urged to sign up for Emergency Alerts from the Village and to receive meeting agendas, field closings, recreation announcements, etc. All of these can easily be done from the front page of the new website.
In addition to the new website and addition of quarterly department reports, we have made efforts to expand our social media presence on both Facebook and Twitter. Since May, Facebook followers have increased by about 20%.
The Village Newsletter is also back to being monthly after a two-year hiatus and a new weekly calendar of events is put out each week to keep residents abreast of happenings around Croton. There are also numerous opportunities for you to provide comments and input from the site.
Informed and engaged residents are the goal for all these improvements. I urge everyone to take advantage of the information sources going forward.

Andy Simmons: Creating More Housing Options for Our Community

To the editor,simmons

A number of months ago, the village board convened a well-attended meeting on housing in Croton. I sat next to a young single mother who shared with us her love for Croton. But she had a problem: her apartment was too small, and she was having trouble finding a larger place in the village that she could afford. It’s not surprising. According to wallethub.com, New York State is ranked 44th in housing cost. No wonder the state is ranked 47th in millennial homeownership. But this is not solely a problem for young families. Lack of affordable apartments impacts seniors who no longer want the hassle of owning a house but still wish to call Croton home. It is for these reasons that I support expanding housing in the area. Now, by no means am I talking about high rises or putting up Co-op City North. I favor small, discreet housing that conforms with the natural beauty of the area. What drew many of us to Croton was its economic diversity and the fact that you didn’t need to be wealthy to enjoy all that our wonderful community has to offer. But for Croton to continue that way, we must recognize the needs of seniors and people like the woman I met at that meeting. We should also welcome how a small infusion of housing and tenants will help local businesses and our tax base.

    1. Discussion with Alan Kassay of PKF O’Connor Davies regarding the 2017-18 Village Audit and financial statements.  Mr. Kassay will review with the Board his firm’s review and audit of the financial statements for the Fiscal Year 2017/2018 ending on May 31, 2018.  Among the highlights called out in the report was that assets exceed liabilities, the Village issued $646,434 in new Bond Anticipation Notes and retired $660,068,  the Village issued 1,616,700 in serial bonds and retired $2,206,780, the total debt was reduced by $590,000.
    2. Discussion with Beth Ferguson of Capital Markets Advisors regarding the Village’s credit ratings.  No backup documents are provided for this discussion.

  • Discussion on snow removal in the Upper Village business district.  As snow removal in the Upper Village is sometimes difficult for both businesses and the DPW, due to cars, time of day, amount of snow, places to put the snow, etc., the Board will review the current regulations and practices for this.
  • Discussion on future mailings of the Village Newsletter.  The Newsletter is currently mailed to 3000+ addresses.  It is also available from the Village’s website and also emailed to subscribers.  The Board will discuss whether direct mailings should continue to all addresses or just to those who specifically asked for it to be mailed.
  • Discussion on overtime costs for the Booster Club event held at Senasqua on September 21, 2018.  The Croton Booster Club recently held an event at Senasqua for which they incurred $837.73 in expenses owed to the Village for overtime.  Although they have agreed to pay this amount, they have asked that the Board consider covering some of the cost based on their assessment of it as community-wide event attended by 1000+ people and that they are a non-profit group.

 

 

Brian Pugh: Options for the Reusable Bag Initiative

To the Editor:pugh2016
As regular readers of the Gazette know, the Village of Croton is contemplating a reusable bag policy in response to a petition from local residents earlier this year. At this time, we are reviewing two options: 1) a ban on plastic bags and a mandatory fee for paper bags modeled on the local law adopted in New Castle or 2) a fee on both kinds of bags modeled on the local law adopted in Bedford. To be clear, the Board of Trustees has not formally adopted either policy at this time.
The first option, a ban on plastic bags with a fee on paper ones, was the policy requested in the petition from Village residents. The second option, a fee on paper and plastic bags, is the policy preferred by the Food Industry Alliance, a trade group representing the grocery industry, of which ShopRite is a member.
Critically, FIA has sued other communities that have adopted ban laws. Currently, this remains an area of unsettled law. Based on the experience of other communities that have defended such suits, the legal bills could easily approach or exceed $100,000. Further, the course of a lawsuit is far from certain: a few years ago, the Village, as a respondent, successfully defended itself against Article 78 litigation but at the price of $432,000. As an unbudgeted expense, these legal fees would have to be taken directly from our Village’s contingency fund.
It’s also unclear whether paying to defend such a lawsuit would be the most efficient use of Village resources. For a fraction of the estimated cost of defending a lawsuit, around $30,000, the Village could easily buy more than 10 reusable bags at retail prices for each of the 3,077 households in our Village and distribute them for free.
However, legislative cooperation rather than legal conflict may achieve our environmental aims at a lower cost to the community. It has been intimated to the Village that the FIA is willing to work with the Village regarding a law that imposed a fee on both plastic and paper. This could include the distribution of free reusable bags to the community by FIA member merchants in advance of the effective date of such a fee/fee law.
Several weeks ago, the Village Board directed the Village Attorney to begin preparation of an Environmental Assessment Form, required under the State Environmental Quality Review Act (SEQRA) for Option 1–a proposed ban on plastic bags and a fee on paper bags. I described the key features of this legislation in a September 21, 2018 letter to the Gazette.
At Monday’s meeting, the Village Board of Trustees considered Option 2 to place a fee on single-use bags (both plastic AND paper). In a 3-2 vote, we referred it to the Waterfront Advisory Council as a preliminary step under the Local Waterfront Revitalization Program (LWRP) process. This was not a final vote on a policy, but rather one part of a longer process of deliberation by the Village Board.
This proposed legislation would impose a fee of 20 cents on both paper and plastic single-use bags over 5,000 square feet in space (covering ShopRite and CVS). It would also provide some common sense exemptions from this fee for items including fruits, meats, unwrapped prepared goods, etc.
In addition, Customers using Supplemental Nutritional Assistance Program (SNAP) or the Special Supplemental Nutrition Program for Women, Infants and Children (WIC) would be exempt from paying a fee for single-use bags.
The proposed legislation would establish a Reusable Bag Task Force. If the Reusable Bag Task Force finds that single-use carryout bag use has not decreased among the covered stores by 50%, then the Village Board may consider one or more of the following revisions to this chapter: an increase in the fee, an outright ban on single- use plastic bags and expansion of the definition of covered stores to include additional establishments.
Logic and empirical data suggests that few people will pay a fee of 20 cents to purchase a plastic bag for their groceries. The overwhelming majority will either choose a reusable bag (which would pay for itself after just a few visits to the store) or a paper bag.
The NYS Plastic Bag Task Force, reports that on “an international level, bag fees have resulted in a reduction in single-use plastic bag use ranging from 50%-90%.” For comparison, the Los Angeles County ban on single-use plastic bags with a 10-cent fee on recyclable paper bags resulted in a 94% reduction in single-use bag use. That is to say a properly designed policy charging fees for both paper and plastic can achieve results similar to an outright ban.
The Board sincerely appreciates the passion and effort of the grassroots activists that have brought forward the issue of single-use bags. I, and the rest the Board, will do our best to find an outcome that best serves the public interest.
Currently, both these proposed policies, a ban on plastic and a fee for paper bags and fee on both paper and plastic, will continue through the environmental review process. The Board of Trustees will continue to consider both these policies, seeking an amicable outcome that will balance the public interest in protecting the environment with the Board’s responsibility for fiscal stewardship.
Sincerely,
Brian Pugh
