Supervisor's Report through 10/15/2015

From the desk of:

                Keith A. Langley, Supervisor

                                          Town of East Greenbush


It’s finally fall, a great season to live in upstate New York.  I hope that everyone has been able to get out and enjoy the beautiful fall weather.  This fall has been very busy for the Town of East Greenbush.

On October 1st, the Tentative Budget (Supervisor’s Budget) was handed out to the Town Board Members and made available to the public.  Once again, I was able to present a zero budget.  Each year since taking office the budget presented has remained below the tax cap.  The budget presented this year, marks the third year in a row that the Supervisor’s budget was presented with a 0% tax increase.  This has remained a priority of my administration.  I have been able to do this while maintaining services provided to the Town, and while substantially reducing interfund borrowing debt.

The Waste Water Treatment Plant is always on the forefront of my agenda.  The project is currently scheduled to be completed on November 25th.  The project has unfortunately had a few incidents that have caused delays and significant financial concerns.  It has yet to be determined the exact financial impact that the Town will sustain.  We are working with the insurance company to try to minimize any costs that the Town will have to absorb.  We are working on this aggressively and will continue to provide updates as we have them.

In the spring, there will be additional work performed relating to the outflow from the facility.  The project engineers are preparing for this stage of the project.  NYS Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC) advised engineers of this required part of the project after the Town had already submitted for financing.  However, our engineers are working with NYS DEC and Environmental Facilities Corporation (EFC) to make sure that the current project transitions smoothly into the outflow work.  As we the current stage of the project, as information becomes available to us, we will make it available to you.

Please check out the website for some upcoming events that the Town is organizing.  There is a great Toddler Halloween Parade and a Veteran’s Day ceremony that our Community and Recreations Department is organizing.  We hope to see you there.
