TOMORROW: SEN. LARKIN, BALL AND MAZIARZ TO TOUR BIOMASS SUSTAINABLE ENERGY PLANT IN MONTGOMERY, NY


The tour is a follow-up to the sustainable energy community briefing that Senator Greg Ball hosted in December to examine biomass energy and its prospects for creating good paying jobs throughout New York State.

“Currently, we are paying folks to transport our waste a great distance away. This process revolutionizes the entire waste process by creating a real value around our refuse, literally turning our trash into cash. We continue to utilize an outdated process to dispose of garbage and waste that is harmful to the environment and not economically sound,” said Senator Greg Ball. “In my eight years in public life, I have never stumbled upon such an amazing opportunity to create jobs and clean up the environment, contemporaneously. I have worked with my colleagues to organize this tour so we can learn how this new innovative and environmentally friendly process can benefit the State of New York with good paying jobs, by turning our waste into energy, while protecting and preserving the environment. I would like to thank Senator Larkin for having us in his district for this tour, as well as Chairman Maziarz for making the trip to see this innovative technology.”

“In today’s ever-changing world, we see the importance of innovation when it comes to solving our energy difficulties.  Taylor Biomass Energy is a great example of a “thinking outside the box” approach to dealing with our growing waste problem.  It is a highly efficient system of producing much needed energy through a gasification process that eliminates nearly 100% of our recycling waste.  Taylor Biomass Energy is a prototype that can and should be used across the country and I am proud that an Orange County business is leading the way in sustainable energy practices,” said Senator Bill Larkin (R-C, Cornwall-on-Hudson).

“Biomass generation supports more than 4,000 jobs across the State of New York, and there is no better example of the positive impact that this industry is having than Taylor Biomass Energy,” said Senator George Maziarz (R-C), Chairman of the Senate Energy and Telecommunications Committee. “Biomass fuel is plentiful in our State due to the large amount of untapped agricultural and forest land where it can be collected, and it is also environmentally friendly since it burns fuel that would already decay as part of a natural carbon life-cycle. This form of generation is also a key component of our State's energy mix, since it is both renewable and can run without interruption an important difference between biomass and other forms of green energy. I appreciate Senator Larkin inviting me to tour this facility and thank Senator Ball for joining us and I can promise that the innovative techniques being used at Taylor Biomass will help to inform our policy making decisions moving forward.”

Although Rep. Sean Patrick Maloney cannot attend the tour due to a conflict, he remains committed to working together to make new and innovate energy sources like biomass a reality.

“It is my priority to team up with ventures like Taylor Biomass and folks like Senator Greg Ball and Senator Bill Larkin to help cut through government red tape and invest in innovative private-public partnerships to make alternative energy sources like biomass a reality, creating hundreds of jobs in the Hudson Valley and developing clean, renewable energy,” said Rep. Sean Patrick Maloney (NY-18).

Biomass energy is an innovative and environmentally friendly technology aimed at adding “recover” to the common environmental lexicon of “reduce, re-use, recycle and recover the energy content.” The biomass process involves a revolutionary change in the haul and dump method. While many profess solutions to “going green” and being a piece of our environmental and energy solution, biomass is a holistic approach that limits our carbon footprint while efficiently creating, clean and sustainable energy within the local area that the waste is generated.

Over the last two decades, Taylor Biomass Energy has developed and refined its proprietary “Taylor Sorting and Separating Process” technology, taking recycling to its best and highest use. Developing new technology to convert biomass into energy for commercial use is the next step in a long tradition of environmental stewardship and innovation. Waste is a resource. We need to stop wasting our waste.

Biomass allows, post sorting, for nearly 97% of our waste to be processed through a minor source air permit facility, gasification process. Biomass effectively eliminates most of our waste while creating affordable energy. One such biomass plant can be a sustainable energy source for nearly 23,000 single family residential homes. For instance, the Town of Montgomery including its three Villages of Montgomery, Walden, Maybrook has approximately 5,900 single family residential homes.

SEN. BALL & GOV. CUOMO ANNOUNCE AGREEMENT AND HOST CEREMONIAL SIGNING OF 6% SET ASIDE FOR SERVICE-CONNECTED DISABLED VETERANS
 
Albany, N.Y.  – 03/20/2014 – Senator Greg Ball (R, C, I – Patterson) and Governor Andrew Cuomo today announced an agreement on legislation to facilitate the awarding of state contracts to disabled veterans. Governor Andrew Cuomo hosted a ceremonial bill signing for the legislation at today’s New York State Veterans and Military Families Summit in Albany, NY.
 
The program will create a 6% state contract set aside for service-connected disabled veteran owned small businesses. The set aside is very similar to the highly successful 3% preference that the federal government offers.
 
The “Service-Disabled Veteran-Owned Business Act” will ensure New York State’s service-connected disabled veterans are able to compete for upwards of $400 million in state contracts.
 
Senator Greg Ball, Chairman of the Senate Veterans, Homeland Security and Military Affairs Committee, has hosted a series of roundtables, hearings, press conference and events over the past three years to rally grassroots support for the set aside.
 
“New Yorkers can stand tall and proud today knowing that we have kept America’s promise to our veterans and service disabled heroes. This landmark legislation will create tens of thousands of jobs for veterans statewide and will allow service disabled veteran small business owners to tap into hundreds of millions of dollars in state contracting. This single act will do more to reverse the high veteran unemployment rate than anything else we have done, or will do. Yet beyond just creating jobs, this is about saving lives, and confronting the epidemic of veteran suicide through meaningful employment. We have been fighting to establish this set aside for years and I want to sincerely thank Governor Cuomo for giving us the backing we desperately needed at a critical time. Governor Cuomo is to be applauded for keeping his commitment to our heroes,” said Senator Greg Ball. “Let it be clear that this is not a handout, this is an opportunity for both employee and employer. These men and women have the exact skill sets we need in the workplace and the integrity we desperately need in the board room. The same attributes that make these people so vital to defending our freedoms are the same hard earned intangibles that make them exceptional at running their businesses and creating jobs. This is what good people can accomplish when they forget the politics and just focus on doing the right thing. Bravo to all involved, bravo!”
 
According to the United States Department of Veterans Affairs, New York State is home to nearly 900,000 veterans, 600,000 of whom have served during periods of conflict. According to Governor Andrew Cuomo, there are roughly 106,000 service-connected disabled veterans in New York State.

Legislator Jenkins Joins Rally for Tesla,
Backs Greater Electric and Hybrid Vehicle Use
 
White Plains, NY – Westchester Legislator Ken Jenkins (D-Yonkers) joined the growing opposition to new legislation moving through the New York State Assembly that would ban direct sales of Tesla electric cars in the state.
 
Jenkins appeared at a rally and press conference this morning, led by Assemblyman David Buchwald (D-93), to show support for Tesla. The rally was held at Tesla’s showroom here in the Westchester Mall.
 
“The fight against Tesla is also a fight against free enterprise, open economic markets and environmental sustainability,” said Jenkins. “Tesla employs thirty-five people right here in Westchester, and this is just the start of something bigger as more people go green when shopping for a new car. Protecting self-interests against new discoveries and the wave of the future goes against the strong values that have made our nation a great, transformative force. I stand with Assemblyman Buchwald in keeping the New York market open to Tesla.”
 
As Chairman of the Westchester County Board of Legislators (BOL), Jenkins has long been an advocate for renewable energy. He worked to ensure that County buildings and facilities were outfitted with solar panels, and helped the County obtain funding for renewable energy projects, including payment for solar panels on the Department of Emergency Services building in Valhalla. Additionally, Jenkins pushed the Spano Administration to implement a contract with the New York Power Authority for a county-wide energy evaluation.
 
Full disclosure: Last September, Jenkins test drove a Tesla, and in December picked up his own brand new electric vehicle (EV).
 
“I feel elected leaders should help show the way toward energy sustainability and an environmentally sound future,” Jenkins remarked. “Green house gases are bringing on climate change. We all need to do what we can to prevent this environmental disaster, and leave the earth in better shape for future generations.”
 
Westchester Legislator Pete Harckham (D-North Salem), chair of the BOL Labor/Parks/Planning/Housing Committee and a staunch environmentalist, also attended today’s rally and press conference.
 
Next week, Jenkins will be introducing two new bills to the BOL: a local law that will require at least 20 percent of the parking spaces be readied for EV charging in new or upgraded parking lots around Westchester; and the closing of loopholes in a law that presently governs the purchase of County vehicles, guaranteeing that they will be high-mileage, electric, hybrid or alternative fuel vehicles.

Town of Ossining Town Hall Meeting
April 15th, 2014
Ossining Public Library
7:30 PM
Agenda:  Revaluation “Kick Off” Meeting
 
Proposed 17/20 Annexation from the Town of Ossining to the Village of Briarcliff Manor
The Town of Ossining has committed to a policy of transparency regarding all issues, including the proposed annexation of Election Districts 17 and 20 from the Unincorporated Area to the Village of Briarcliff Manor.  We have spent a great deal of time doing our due diligence, listening to the taxpayers (75-80 percent who spoke at meetings and/or wrote to the Town were not in favor of annexation) and evaluating the body of facts before us.  We have studied the annexation law in great detail, and you can read our findings, as well as all the backup data, through the link below:
The Town concluded that it was not in the best interest of the residents of Districts 17/20, the rest of the Unincorporated Area, the Village of Briarcliff Manor or the Village of Ossining, for annexation to go forward. 
Conversely, the Village of Briarcliff Manor performed their own analysis on the proposed request (which can be found on their web page), and concluded that annexation would be in the best interest of the community.
The Village of Briarcliff Manor now has the option to take the matter to the appellate court.  This process will cause the community to incur a variety of unbudgeted legal costs, as special counsel will have to be hired to represent both the Town of Ossining and the Village of Briarcliff in the proceedings.  We cannot even begin to estimate these costs, but we have not yet heard from Briarcliff Manor as to whether they will plan to pursue this in the court. In the meanwhile, the Town will proactively begin the process of interviewing law firms to get estimates to see how this will impact our budget.
______________________________
Revaluation of the Town of Ossining
Over the past two years, we have discussed the plan for a total revaluation of all Town properties – residential as well as commercial.  We have spoken about it at many of our Town Hall Meetings and work sessions; we have even hosted speakers from New York State Office of Real Property Tax Services (ORPTS) who encourage all communities to undergo a “reval”, so that all property owners are ensured a fair and equable assessment of their property, resulting in each owner only paying their fair share of taxes.
While there may be a shift in how some properties are valued, many people will find that their property taxes will not change drastically.  We, as do other municipalities in Westchester, use equalization rates to account for the differences in value on today’s tax roll. This is not a tax increase, but rather a revaluation to ensure that the municipalities, schools/library (Ossining) and Westchester County are distributing the tax burden of the fairly.  
We have worked with both Villages and school systems on this project, and have actively kept them in the “loop” throughout the whole process. Everyone understands the importance of this process, as it is the only way to both slow and minimize the grieving of taxes, which result in large refunds, lost administrative time, and costs to borrow money to pay settlements.
The Town (not counting the Villages, Schools or Westchester County) has had to bond to pay the refunds. Looking at the chart below, you can plainly see how the Town would be best served by correcting this entire process and moving forward with an updated tax roll.
Year    Tax Certioraris $     SCARS$         Total $ paid out for Tax Certs and SCARS
2009   $120,379.53              $     184.18                                         $120,563.71
2010   $ 96,146.07               $  29,759.53                                       $125,905.60
2011    $536,222.61              $  34,941.91                                       $571,164.52
2012   $253,771.87               $   2,676.15                                        $256,448.02
2013   $202,424.36             $        .00                                            $202,424.36
                                                Total 5 years refunds:                     $1,276,506.21
 
 Again, if you are concerned that your house or commercial property is incorrectly assessed, please call the Assessor’s Office at (914) 762-8274.  Home owners, you may see your mailboxes flooded with postcards and letters in the very near future (if they have not started already) from tax grievance companies. Don’t forget, you always have the option of speaking with our Assessor instead, rather than paying these companies to simply have the conversation for you!
On April 15th, 2014, we will have our next Town Hall Meeting, and the company handling the project will be there to present a detailed overview of the project.   
Just an example of the questions that will be answered:
·        How does the process happen?
·        What is the time frame of the project?
·        Will my home or business be physically inspected?
·        How do I ensure that I have the correct building permits/inspections for any work that I had done in the past?
·        What are the costs associated with going to the Building Department(s) after I have done the work that required a permit?
We encourage as many people as possible to come, but we do realize that April 15th is Passover, and there are other community events taking place that day. If you’re not available, we will repeat this “Kickoff Meeting” in the future, as well as arrange meetings in other venues, such as neighborhood/condo meetings.  Clubs, religious organizations, social groups, safety net organizations, and condo and Home Owner Associations, do you want to schedule a meeting with the Assessor, Town Board Representative and Tyler Technologies?  Please call the Supervisor’s Office at (914) 762-6001 or email me at sSDonelly@townofossining.com.
__________________________________________
The PILOT at Harbor Square
There will be a public hearing on Monday, April 7th at 11:00 AM at the Joseph G Caputo Community Center concerning the PILOT for the Harbor Square Project. As you may know, the Town of Ossining said NO to the PILOT, but it appears it will move forward for the Village of Ossining, Ossining School District and the Ossining Public Library, as well as Westchester County.
I know I will be there, because the Town feels that PILOTs should be employed for commercial properties bringing jobs into the community and who demonstrate hardship, and not to enhance the profits of a developer.
Our statement from our December 2013 Supervisor's Update was and will always remain:
“The Town has passed a resolution objecting to the proposed PILOT for Harbor Square. After extensive review, we have determined that it is not in the best interest of the community to allow this PILOT to go through. At the December 10th, 2013 meeting of the Town Board when this resolution was on the agenda, I read the following statement on behalf of most of the Town Board:
‘The Town of Ossining welcomes development of real property that is fully within the law. We understand that an owner of a property is fully within its right to develop as they so choose, but it must be in accordance with all applicable laws, including the payment of property taxes.
In the current economic environment, tax revenues that we need to provide necessary services are lower- our mortgage tax revenues are lower, sales tax revenues are lower, franchise tax revenues are lower, property tax revenues are lower. That is why, now, more than ever, we must stand firm on equity and fairness.
Tonight’s vote is fair to all taxpayers in Ossining WHO CONSTANTLY REMIND US THAT WE WERE ELECTED TO REDUCE THEIR TAX BURDEN. We cannot support a proposed PILOT, or Payment In Lieu of Taxes, that will unquestionably increase the demand for services, but shifts the tax burden in excess of $2.3 million onto our taxpayers.
The developer of Harbor Square seeks permission to circumvent the property tax laws that apply to all property owners in the Town of Ossining. According to the Westchester Industrial Development Agency, PILOT (Payment in Lieu of Taxes) plans should be used for business growth such as industrial manufacturing, commercial, and R&D. The IDA’s guidelines for claiming Real Property Tax Exemptions does not even include an exemption for development of Real Property. The proposed residential PILOT would inappropriately excuse the developer from paying over $2,300,000 in tax revenue that otherwise should be collected and distributed in the same way as every residential taxpayer’s taxes are collected and distributed by the Town.
The potential tax losses from the proposed PILOT are as follows:
Entity                                                           Percent of total taxes (2013)         Loss from PILOT
Ossining School District                                         58.78%                          $1,392,498
Ossining Library                                                        2.36%                          $ 55,908
Village of Ossining                                                   25.80%                           $ 611,202
Town General                                                                1.64%                        $ 38,851
Westchester County                                                     8.35%                           $ 197,811
Westchester County Sewer                                           .82%                           $ 19,425
Ossining Sewer                                                              1.74%                           $ 41,220

Other residential property developers have paid their fair share of taxes, and permitting this individual developer to circumvent centuries-old tax requirements sets a dangerous and irreversible precedent for treatment of future developers and subsequent developments.
It is possible that the developer’s request for tax reduction may be motivated in part by its financial condition resulting from its using Harbor Square as collateral to take out mortgages totaling $14,400,000; if this is true, we cannot permit the taxpayers to be held responsible for the developer’s profits and/or other financial concerns.
In any event, the fact that the principals of the firm used Harbor Square as collateral to take out mortgages totaling $14,400,000 demonstrates to this Board that there was consensus between the developer and the issuing bank that the property was worth no less than $14mm at the time of the mortgage. Therefore, despite Harbor Square’s tax grievance regarding calculation of the 2014 taxes, the Town is confident that the current assessed value of $9,600,000 will stand up in court, especially since the Village Board has recently approved a new site plan for the property that is shovel ready. With respect to the developer’s tax grievance, it is important to note that no action taken now will result in any tax refund to the developer.
Some residents have been vocal about being 100% fair to all parties in all dealings, but now in the case of Harbor Square wish the Town Board to do what the developer wants. Our pledge to each resident and commercial property owner is to have fair and equitable assessments on property in the Town. That is why the Town of Ossining, and numerous other Westchester municipalities, is beginning a complete re-assessment of all properties beginning in the 2nd quarter of 2014. This Board feels strongly that the proposal to excuse Harbor Square from its obligation to pay $2.3mm in property taxes on the eve of a major revaluation is contrary to our mission to instill fairness in property taxation and would send precisely the wrong message to those who demand and are entitled to fair distribution of the tax burden.
The developers have indicated that, without approval of this proposed PILOT, they will not build the development. There is no good reason for the developer not to build the development if it is required to pay its property tax obligations, especially since the building will contain rental units that, once rented out by the developer, will offset a portion of the developer’s tax burden. Therefore, the developer will be able to recoup the outlay of its tax obligation by charging rent. If they refuse to build, keeping in mind they have an approved site plan, and then we welcome them to sell the property and let Ossining move on.
We are an Independent Board elected by the residents of Ossining- we cannot govern as others want us to, nor can we tell others how to govern.  However, we feel a responsibility not to abdicate our role in this process- we made our residents a promise to do what we feel is right for this community which includes fair distribution of taxes, and we do not plan to go back on that promise.’”

(March 19, 2014) Assemblywoman Sandy Galef's bill A.1700, which would
guarantee that copyright claims will not hamper the desire or ability of
citizens to use public records or serve as a roadblock to the economic
interests of our state, passed the Assembly today as part of a package of
legislation aimed at increasing government transparency. 



Each year, Sunshine Week is designated as a way to emphasize the importance,
visibility, and public awareness of government. The New York State Assembly
has strengthened its commitment to this cause this year by passing a
five-bill legislative package which addresses New York's access to
government records, to public employee retirement system records, to a
faster trial when Freedom of Information Law-protected  (FOILed) documents
are involved, and to better communication of food safety  and consumer
protection violations in the food business.



"It is important that information regarding government be available to all
who request it through the Freedom of Information Act without having to pay
a high premium for that information or being denied this information because
government claimed a copyright and refused the FOIL request," stated Galef.
"Government should not claim copyright in order to discourage the public
from obtaining public information."



Galef's bill addresses the issue that government records, especially ones
which are available electronically, have increasing value and may be used
commercially for profit.  While it is understood that governmental agencies
expend considerable amounts of money to develop and use information
technology, that money would be expended anyway as part of the running of
government, even if FOIL did not exist.  Copyright should not be claimed
when an agency is obligated by law to prepare a record, and fair use of
copyright material provides for public access to records that may involve
the accountability of government and promote the public's understanding of
government activities. 



Other bills, three of which Assemblywoman Galef co-sponsors, included in the
Sunshine Week package were:



*    Assemblyman Englebright's bill A.5170, which clarifies certain
provisions of FOIL and other disclosure laws to make sure that people are
not wrongfully denied access to public records;



*    Assemblywoman Englebright's bill A.5171 clarifies that the name of a
retiree in a public employees' retirement system is subject to disclosure
under FOIL;



*    Assemblyman Buchwald's bill A.5306, which expedites the appeals
process when a trial court has found in favor of a FOIL request action,
thereby insuring timely appellate review and conclusion to the issue;



*    Assemblyman Silver's bill A.8220 requires the NYS Department of
Agriculture and Markets to post on its website, or another State website,
information about food safety and consumer protection violations by food
businesses.



All of the aforementioned bills have passed the Assembly as part of a
government reform package the Assembly has advanced in celebration of
Sunshine Week. The package of bills was aimed at strengthening government's
transparency and openness.    ###

In case you missed it, Andrew Cuomo has finally announced the title of his upcoming memoir. Are you ready, New York? Here it is:
 
All Things Possible: Setbacks and Success in Politics and Life
 
We're all atwitter. And we're sure you're excited, too.  
 
But we couldn't help but think that title could use some jazzing up.  
 
After all, is "All Things Possible" really an appropriate title for a Governor who has totally failed to change New York's status as the most taxed, most regulated, least business-friendly, least economically free, least personally free state in America?
 
Here are our best suggestions for a new subtitle:
  • All Things Possible: Even a Hypothetical Budget Surplus (No, really, just take my word for it)  
  • All Things Possible: Just Not a Decision on Fracking
  • All Things Possible: But I Decided that it Didn't Really Matter that Sheldon Silver had Protected Sexual Abusers so I Did Nothing.
  • All Things Possible: Don't Believe me? Check out my $140 Million, Taxpayer-funded Ad Campaign
  • All Things Possible: Except Protecting New Yorker' Second Amendment Rights
  • All Things Possible: Because if you can make Lasagna with Cottage Cheese, What Can't you do?

Cox to Wright:
Do the right thing
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Contact: David Laska
dlaska@nygop.org
518.462.2601
ALBANY...NYGOP Chair Ed Cox this morning called on Assemblyman Keith Wright, Co-Chair of the State Democratic Party, to join him in opposing Bill de Blasio and Sheldon Silver's War on Charters, after the New York Post reported this morning that Assemblyman Wright represents a district that encompasses 15 charter schools with a combined wait-list of nearly 4,000 children.
 
Last month, Bill de Blasio took unilateral action to revoke co-location of three Success Academy charter schools, cementing his support from teachers unions by betraying New York's youth.
 
Silver has pushed back against efforts in the State Legislature to provide state funding for charters ousted by de Blasio.
 
"As a founder and former chair of SUNY's Charter School Committee, I know how charter schools can provide underprivileged children with the building blocks of upward social mobility," said Cox.
 
"I call upon Chairman Wright to join me in pledging support for charter schools against Bill de Blasio and Sheldon Silver's shameful, politically-motivated War on Charters."
