Administrator's Report and Public Comments
The county paper shredder, scheduled for May 12, to the truck.
In response to resident Lori Semeraro's question about the legality of a tattoo given at the on January 10 before the shop was officially opened, Village Administrator Michael Blau said the shop was in full compliance of the law because a temporary certificate of occupancy had been issued.
Blau's answer did not satisfy Semeraro who insisted that on January 10 the shop had not yet been given permission to operate in compliance with the Rockland Sanitary Code.
"This was a controversial issue," said Semeraro. "I would have expected that we would follow the letter of the law."
On another issue, also raised by Semeraro, Blau said he had requested but not yet received the air monitor calibration data from AAA Fire and Security, Inc.
Semeraro filed a Freedom of Information Act request to get the preventive maintenance data from the Village that she said should be routinely filed by AAA.
"All I got was a bill for the services," said Semeraro. "I am not saying they are falsifying data. I am saying we don't have any data."
Also during the public comments period, a resident from Martling Avenue took the opportunity to congratulate the Board on its efforts to reduce energy use.
The Board agreed to retain a company to provide an uninterrupted power source (UPS) for the police department. Apparently, when the power supply fails, there is a 15-second time lapse before the generator kicks in, causing communication interruption. The UPS will resolve that issue.
Responding to a request by the New York State Legislature, the Board agreed to repeal the Tarrytown Urban Renewal Agency. The agency was set-up in the '60s, according to Deputy Mayor Tom Basher, to clean-up blighted areas of Tarrytown. Since the agency has been inactive for some time, it is being abolished by the State as a way to downsize government.
Ryan Fisher of Ardsley, New York, has been appointed Summer Camp Director for the Tarrytown/Sleepy Hollow Day Camp at a salary of $7,000 for the season.
The Board approved the disposal of three vehicles including at 2001 Chevy Dump Truck, a 2000 Chevy Pick-up, and a 1998 Crown Victoria.
The Board approved bill payments in the amount of $609,554 and adjourned to executive session to discuss personnel matters.
