e. CWC report – Building is continuing construction. Septic 5 contract. Funding for homes, small businesses, non for profits and municipal septic systems. This also includes modifications. CWC had a meeting last week with DEP. DEP is only paying for repairs, not replacements. Small business septic program does both. Tim told them that is what we are going to do.

5. Reports
a. National Academy of Sciences Panel
i. Meetings: 10/25 and 26 – Jeff Baker attended the first meeting and made comments on behalf of the CWT. Based on some of the statements that the city has made, looking to the expert panel for guidance effectively scientific and politically cover to the city to ease up on the LAP and lean more towards the SAP program.

b. FAD deliverables:
i. Streamside Acquisition – Mark Tuthill and Jeff Baker attended the meeting on Oct. 22. Dave Tobias had a PowerPoint presentation showing tiers of incentive payments to bring the landowners in. $1,000 to $5,000 payment on a parcel. They continue to throw road blocks. Need to find another way to address the value of the property. DEP wanted CWT to adopt the presentation and say that things were moving along. Jeff said no. First he has heard of it. Jeff drafted a paragraph for the municipalities to add to their local laws to subdivide a parcel out without road frontage. DEP said that cannot be done, it effects their appraisal. This is not true. They are not locked in a full market value according to the MOA. Making better headway with all the other groups except DEP.

i. Town of Olive has trouble with the ORPS report. ORPS assessment at 81 million which is more than the current agreement with NYC. NYC could sue. If they go with TLAP which is a higher assessment, Town of Olive will get sued by DEP. Jeff suggested to go through TLAP and bump up the numbers as high as you can. If you get sued by the city, you will be in the program and will be eligible to receive the funds. We will need to go through the Legislature to get to ORPS and educate them on how this process works.

3. Update on 3rd Supplemental Side Agreement Signatures. Jeff will follow-up with Ulster County.

4. Resolutions
a. CWC Land Acquisition Reviews. Where does the confidentially come in. The City feels strongly about it according to Jeff. The property owner and City has agreed on an appraisal price. CWC is asking to review and make comments before it goes to contract. CWC is not looking for a price, it’s not what the Board is looking at doing. The disclosure of the land owner isn’t until the end. At the end it’s a public price. Ric Coombe stated that some of the concerns the Towns are having the overreaching of Land Acquisitions. The property owners need to understand that they don’t have to sell the whole parcel. Need to retain as much developable land possible. The property owners are concerned for being singled out for selling to DEP with a program attached to it. Mike stated that seemed to be the issue. There are landowners that they don’t want people to know that they are dealing with the City. Mark stated that this issue isn’t solved yet. Still disagreements on appraisals. Moved for adoption a resolution that the CWT shares the concerns of the local officials of the CWC Board of Directors and strongly supports their request. Moved by Mike McCrary. Second by Ric Coombe. Opposed by Wayland Gladstone.

b. Bike paths on City Land. Mark reported that he met with Dave Warne and Paul Rush last week. The bike path will not be approved. Jeff Baker presented to the Board a resolution urging DEP to reconsider its position. Mike suggested more tourism be presented in the resolution. Moved to adopt with changes by Mike McCrary. Second by Ric Coombe. Passed. Jeff also stated that this is not a CWT issue. Hunter and Windham will have to deal with this on their own, but Jeff will offer guidance when he can. Also, the funds are low in the CWT budget.

5. Reports
a. National Academy of Sciences Panel – Meetings will take place 9/27 – 9/28 and 10/25 – 10/26. Jeff is scheduled to speak during the open comment period.

b. FAD deliverables – Mark went to the meeting last Friday which was the smaller group. Jeff stated that they are trying to get them to recognize the goals of what we have and it’s making good progress talking about it. Another meeting is October 22 of the smaller group. The larger group will meet sometime in November with all the state holders bringing all this together. The big question is to get the city to recognize to pay some type of incentive for premium payment for the value of the land, it’s a narrow buffer.

c. Flood Commission Reports – Aaron Bennett reported. See attached.

d. CWC report – Tim Cox reported that a bid has been approved for the new CWC building.

i. Dues update – Mark reported on the towns that have dropped out over the years. This will be looked into. Our budget is running low. There are issues that are coming up that will be using a large portion of the budget over the next year. We need to replenished the funds. Jeff suggested about going to the Legislature for a special allocation to the CWT. Ric Coombe suggested that we raise the dues. Send out a letter this year to remind people what the CWT does. Jeff will draft the letter. And, that the CWT dues will be raise by 50% in the year 2020. Mark suggested a blanket form resolution to be sent to all Towns and Villages for them to send to Albany stating we need funding to help offset the dues increase. Jeff will draft that resolution.

7. Other – Delaware County needs two alternates

Executive Board Meeting – Aug 20, 2018

Location: CWC, Main Street, Margaretville, NY
Time: 6:15pm

Present: Mark Tuthill, Anthony Coiro, William Federice, Peter Friedel, Thomas Hilson, Michael McCrary, Greg Vurckio, David Kukle, Chris Mathews and Donald Murray.
Others: Molly Oliver, Bruce Dolph, Larry Underwood, Tim Cox, Kelly B. Mariotti, Michelle Yost and Steve Walker.

3. Update on 3rd Supplemental Side Agreement Signatures. Waiting on Ulster and Sullivan Counties to sign. It is in the works. CWC has approved the agreement, they just have to sign.

4. CWC Land Acquisition Reviews
a. Del. Co. Resolution in support of CWC’s request to review Land Acquisitions.

b. CWC – CWC is asking DEC if they could have authority to review Land Acquisitions and make comments. WAC doesn’t like this idea. The Towns would also have a chance for input in case they want to do something with the parcel in the future. CWC would also contract with the County to help with the reviews. The main thing is the Towns receive all possible information and comments before going into contract with the City. Tim Cox brought up the Wayne Marshfield letter to DEP in regards that there are nine parcels that the city wants to buy but only one of the parcels includes a water course that meets the natural resource criteria. Tom Snow is in favor of getting us in pre-contract. Motion moved by Tony Coiro for a resolution by the CWT in support of CWC reviews and comments on Land Acquisitions having the Towns review before going into contract. Second by Greg Vurckio. Motion approved by all. CWT will send minutes to Tom Snow and do a resolution next month.

5. Windham Path Resolution – Mr. Walker presented a resolution from the Town of Windham to the CWT Board requesting legal assistance from CWT Board to work with NYCDEP on advancing the Windham Path through land owned by the DEP. Tony stated that we need to look at the whole picture. Tourism is a big part of our economy for all the Towns. Bruce suggested to eliminate the word “Mountain bikes” and just make it “bikes”. Mountain bike suggests bikes racing down the mountain creating ruts and tearing up the side of the mountain – which is not what these paths would be. DEC has mountain bike trails. Maybe DEP will consider this language. Mark will bring this up next week when he meets with Dave Warne and Paul Rush. Mike McCrary motioned to draft a resolution for the next CWT meeting. We need to raise the issue with DEP pointing out the recreational use of these trails which may include non-motorized wheels that are beneficial to the community, tourism, better preserving water quality and controlling erosion. Second by Tony Coiro. Motion approved by all.

iii. Scientific Support Group – A small panel of experts are being formed in Delaware County to participate in the NAS meetings.

b. FAD deliverables:

vi. Windham – 3 applications are in the process for buyouts on main street.
vii. Molly Oliver for Arron Bennett –DEC has decided not to do the monitoring on the sites that were purchased through the flood buyout program. City is looking for someone else to monitor the sites. These are municipally owned sites. Mount Tremper has ~7 properties that had started out on the flood buyout process. If the properties are not purchased by the end of next year, DOT is going to eminent domain the properties because they want to lengthen the bridge. The County was totally surprised by this last week and now the process is coming to a halt.
Tim Cox reported that there are 2 projects that they are looking to do. First is Rt. 28 bridge replacement in Big Indian. Second is 212 up towards Woodstock. There is a bridge there that goes under water every time during flooding. They are looking at raising 212. There are 2 properties that would be involved. Looking to do a flood buyout on the properties. One of them is the Rock Cut Cottages. Looking to do a relocation. The City has pulled the plug on the buyouts because of the DOT timeline.
