Decoding Village Agendas – April 25, 2022
Regular Meeting of the Village Board
Georgianna Grant Room
a. Request for an LWRP Consistency Review from the New York State Dept. of Environmental Conservation regarding site improvements at Van Cortlandt Manor. The NYSDEC is asking the Village to confirm that this project is consistent with the Village’s LWRP. It will be referred to the Waterfront Advisory Committee for review.
A. Consider adoption of the 2022-2023 Village Budget for the fiscal year commencing June 1, 2022, through May 31, 2023. The proposed budget for Fiscal 2022/2023 falls under the NYS Tax Levy Cap. It calls for a total appropriation of $19,222,047. Of this amount, $12,655,820 would be raised by property taxes. This amounts to a 2.38% rate or $6.479 per $1000 of assessed valuation.
b. Consider the addition of past due receivables to the tax bills for the 2022-2023 fiscal.
C. Consider adoption of the Master Fee Schedule for 2022-2023.
D. Consider authorizing the Mayor to sign the Tax Warrant for the collection of taxes for the period commencing June 1, 2022, through May 31, 2023.
E. Consider authorizing the Village Manager to execute a revised Memorandum of Understanding with Sustainable Westchester to participate in the upcoming ESA with Westchester Power. The previously approved MOU stipulated a not-to-exceed price of 12.5 cents during their bidding process for an energy supplier. Due to the volatility in the energy market, this would revise the not-to-exceed price to 13.9 cents.
