Decoding Village Agendas – January 4, 2016

January 2, 2016

Regular Meetings of the Village Board


 (Open to Public  – Televised)



PRESENTATIONS/OTHER;  Review of the criteria for a Determination of Environmental Significance of a special permit for a mixed use building located at 379 South riverside Avenue.  A proposed building at this location is under review.  A special permit must be approved by the Village Board.  The Planning Board has recommended in favor of this proposal.  The waterfront Advisory Committee requested that a Phase 1 and Phase 2 environmental assessment be performed to assure the site was clean (former gas station).  Both reports said the site is  uncontaminated by prior uses. At this point in the process, the Board must determine whether the proposed project meets with the SEQRA criteria.


PUBLIC HEARING:  To consider adoption of Local Law Introductory No. 1 of 2016 to override the “Property Tax Cap” law enacted by the state legislature  if necessary.  Under the State law, if the Village not meet the tax cap limitations in its upcoming 2016/2017 budget, it will have financial penalties imposed unless it approves this override law in advance of the budget approval.  This is the third year in which the override law has been required to protect against the possible penalty.  If the Village budget does meet the tax cap imposed this year, this law will have to be rescinded prior to the budget adoption.



  1. Samantha Epstein, Invasive Species Program Coordinator for the Hudson River Sloop, Clearwater; re: implementation of a Watercraft Inspection Steward Program at Senasqua Park launch.  The Watercraft Inspection Stewards provide free, voluntary boat inspections to recreational boaters and fisherman, and remove any animal or plant material that are found on the boat. These programs help to minimize the amount of potentially invasive aquatic species from spreading into our waterways.  The program would start in 2016 and continue to 2018.  In 2015, the program was conducted at the Echo Boat launch with over 500 boat inspections.


  1.  Village Board of Trustees schedules a Public Hearing on January 19, 2016 at 8 pm  to consider the renewal of a special permit application for a Motor Vehicle Service Station and sale of used cars located at 365 South riverside Avenue.  This is a renewal for the uses currently located at the former Croton Dodge location.
