Watkins opposes gas storage project
Watkins opposes gas storage project
WATKINS GLEN—After weeks of discussion, the Watkins Glen village board passed a resolution opposing Crestwood’s proposed liquid petroleum gas (LPG) storage expansion in Reading. The resolution was met with applause from those who attended  the village meeting Monday, Aug. 18. The measure was approved with three votes in favor and two abstentions from trustees Paul Clifford and Anthony Fraboni. Clifford said he abstained due to being a Cargill employee who wanted to avoid the appearance of being a direct competitor to the project, while Fraboni abstained, stating earlier he thought taking a stance on the issue would have little to no impact on the state’s decision. The resolution reads, “In keeping with the majority opinion of the local village community, the village of Watkins Glen board respectfully requests that the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC) withhold approval of any plan for mass storage of LPG adjacent to or under Seneca Lake and exercise its power in identifying a more appropriate location for any such storage site.” Read More ...
Committee begins work on streets plan
Committee begins work on streets plan
DUNDEE—A committee of local residents and Dundee village officials held their first meeting in July to review the complete streets study that was recently finished. This study was commissioned by the Our Town RoCKS Health Improvement Project and the village of Dundee to provide an assessment that could help to guide improvements to streets and sidewalks in order to make the community more walkable and bike-able. In March, consultant Justin Booth from Make Communities in Buffalo led 25 attendees through a workshop that consisted of an introduction to the complete streets concept; a walk-around the village which focused on Main, Water and Millard Streets including the intersection in front of the school; and, a debriefing that included brainstorming of the vision for the village.
“It can be a variety of things,” Project Coordinator Lauren Snyder said. Read More ...
Centerline rumble strips are now in place
Centerline rumble strips are now in place
TRI-COUNTY AREA—People driving through the area over the summer may have noticed the recent additions of grooves along the center lines of along Routes 14, 14A and 54. These grooves are called rumble strips and are intended to help prevent head-on collisions. According to the New York State Department of Transportation (DOT), the 2005 National Cooperative Highway Research Program (NCHRP) Synthesis found head-on and opposite direction sideswipe injury crashes were reduced by an estimated 25 percent at sites treated with centerline rumble strips. This study concluded centerline rumble strips can result in a 14 percent reduction of all crashes and a 15 percent reduction of injury crashes on rural two-lane roads. A study conducted in 2009 concluded fatal and injury head-on and opposite direction sideswipe crashes in rural areas were reduced by an average of 44 percent. Read More ...

Schuyler sales tax collection up 3 percent
Schuyler sales tax collection up 3 percent
FINGER LAKES—Compared to 2013, the first six months of 2014 indicate the sales tax collections in Schuyler County are up 3 percent. This comes as local sales tax collection in New York state grew by $177 million, or 2.4 percent, for the first half of 2014 compared to the same period in 2013, according to a report issued by State Comptroller Thomas P. DiNapoli. Some 19 counties experienced an increase of more than 4 percent during this period. “While sales tax revenues continue to increase across the state, the growth is the weakest since the end of the Great Recession,” said DiNapoli. “Sales tax collections in New York City are thriving but several regions are experiencing only modest gains or even declines. Clearly our state’s economy remains in a recovery mode and local government officials will need to be mindful of the volatility of sales tax revenue as they monitor their budgets during the second half of the year.” Read More ...

Allmendinger records first win
WATKINS GLEN–In classic Watkins Glen fashion, the final laps of the Cheez-It 355 at The Glen, Sunday Aug. 10, gave race fans a reward for sticking around until the end of the race. AJ Allmendinger and Marcos Ambrose battled with each other as the race wound down, running two wide, repeatedly making contact and both constantly looking for an opportunity to pass. Allmendinger was able to get around Ambrose with just over one lap left and hold him off for the win. “I was hoping to make [my first win] boring, honestly,” said Allmendinger, driver of the No. 47 JTG/Daugherty Chevrolet. “I wanted to lead all 90 laps and just have a cruise control. But that’s what makes the Sprint Cup Series so fun. You know you’re not going to get that.” He continued, “And [Ambrose], I don’t believe he’s one of the best road racers in NASCAR, I don’t believe he’s one of the best in the U.S., I believe he’s one of the best in the world.” Read More ...

Freeman briefs attendees on open meetings
Freeman briefs attendees on open meetings
TYRONE—More than 40 people attended a forum by Executive Director of the State Committee on Open Government Robert Freeman Thursday, July 31. During the meeting, Freeman briefly explained the intricacies of the Freedom of Information Law (FOIL) as well as the Open Meetings Law, answering many questions from the crowd relating to situations they have witnessed in local governments. The meeting was held at the Tyrone Fire Hall and was sponsored by resident Alan Hurley, Friends of Tyrone, SCOPE and the Odessa Tea Party. While Freeman said his office holds no power to actually enforce the FOIL and Open Meetings Law, he offers advice and opinions to those with inquiries. He said the Open Meetings Law pertains to meetings of public governmental bodies consisting of two or more members either elected or appointed to carry out some statutory function. Freeman said notice must be given to media and posted in designated public locations not less than 72 hours prior to a meeting, and are also required to give notice online as well if practicable. He said the law went into effect in 1977, adding any gathering since then that is a quorum for conducting public business is considered a public meeting, even if no action was taken. Read More ...
Fire department receives $285K grant
Fire department receives $285K grant
WATKINS GLEN—The Watkins Glen Fire Department recently received a $285,000 grant for the replacement of a 27-year-old truck in their service. The fire district of Watkins Glen, New York is 58 square miles. Only some 20 percent of the area—roughly 12 square miles—is equipped with fire hydrants, posing a major challenge to Judson Smith, the department’s fire chief.  “We and our mutual aid partners are heavily dependent upon mobile water to execute our firefighting obligations in this rural response area,” he says. “On top of that,” Smith adds, “the equipment we had put together to serve as our tanker truck, starting with a Volvo cab and chassis back in 1986, had become too unsafe in October of last year to continue operating.” The award of a $285,000 grant, then, from the Assistance to Firefighter Grants, a unit of the Federal Emergency Management Agency, to purchase a new tanker truck is of great value to the department, Smith said. The local share is $15,000, totaling $300,000 in funding. The old tanker that stopped working last year could pump 125 gallons per minute. Read More ...
Gas storage opponents travel to Albany
Gas storage opponents travel to Albany
ALBANY—Dozens of Finger Lakes winery and business owners went to Albany Wednesday, July 30, to call on Gov. Andrew Cuomo to protect the region’s wine industry and tourism by denying permits for a proposed gas storage facility along Seneca Lake in Watkins Glen.  “Governor Cuomo has been a great supporter of New York’s wineries and the Finger Lakes, but this proposed gas facility threatens our future growth and place as the Napa of the Northeast,” said Doug Hazlitt, a sixth generation Finger Lakes vintner and owner of Hazlitt 1852 Winery. “We need Governor Cuomo’s support now to protect the health of our region and the very things that make it great—the local businesses, renowned wine, and our way of life.”  The wineries are part of the opposition to Texas-based Crestwood-Midstream’s proposal to use old abandoned salt caverns along Seneca Lake to store millions of barrels of liquid petroleum gas (LPG) and billions of cubic feet of natural gas. The proposal has generated opposition in regard to the threat it poses to one of the state’s largest supplies of drinking water, the local economy, and the area’s growing wine and tourism industry. Read More ...
