Decoding Village Agendas – November 23, 2015

November 21, 2015

Work Session of the Village Board

7: 30 p.m.

 (Open to Public)


  1. Discussion regarding snow removal on sidewalks  in front of businesses.  Given the severe winters of the past two years, when snow removal sometimes became a problem in business areas, the board will discuss the plans for future snow removal.
  2. Discussion regarding additional signage to be placed at certain crosswalks.  The Board has received requests for additional crosswalk signage at some intersections in the Village which will be discussed.
  3. Discussion regarding the Emergency Tenant Protection Act (ETPA).    The ETPA was adopted by the Village in 2003.  It applies to housing accommodations with 50 or more housing units.  The Board will discuss whether it should be applied to buildings with a lesser number of housing units.  The ETPA applies when a housing emergency exists which is defined as when the vacancy rates is 5% or less of the total number of rental units in the Village  or when sudden substantial rent increases are imposed on tenants.
  4. Discussion regarding increasing minimum wage for Village employees. The initiative for this discussion is Governor Cuomo’s recent raising of the minimum wage for NYS state workers to $15/hour by 2021 with incremental increases from next year forward until 2021.   The Village has been following federal minimum wage regulations for hourly employees. There are about 64 employees paid on an hourly basis.  They are primarily seasonal employees in the Recreation Dept. working at camps and parks and also at the DPW.  The hourly pay of these positions currently ranges from $8/hour to $9.75/hour with most in the $8. to $8.50 range.
