COMPROMISE! TENNIS BUBBLE APPROVED--FUNDS TO BE USED TO PAY FOR COMPREHENSIVE PLAN
Release Date: November 29, 2007

The Greenburgh Town Board and I worked out a compromise. The Town Board unanimously approved a resolution authoriziing an agreement with Sportime to rent the tennis facilities at AF Veteran Park during the off season months. The Board also agreed to use $405,000 from the tennis bubble lease to fund a comprehensive plan for the town. Members of the Planning Board, Zoning Board, Conservation Advisory Council have been pushing for a plan to study long term infrastructure, land use, flooding, parking and economic needs facing the town. In addition to infrastructure enhancements and the construction of a clubhouse (at Sporttime's expense) the town will receive the following payments from Sportime.
Year 1-$192,500.00; Year 2-$195,000.00; Year 3-$197,500.00; Year 4-$200,000.00;
Year5-$205,000.00; Year 6-$207,500.00; Year 7-$210,000.00; Year 8-$212,500.00;
Year 9-$215,000.00; Year 10 $217,500.00; Year 11-$220,000.00; Year 12-
$222,500.00; Year 13-$225,000.00; Year 14-$227,500.00 and Year 15-$230,000.00.
The good news: All the members of the Town Board worked cooperatively to work out a compromise plan. I announced that I will sign the comprehensive plan agreement and the bubble agreement on the same day. Hopefully, this is the beginning of a great working relationship between Town Board members.

ON ANOTHER MATTER-- We held a very long meeting (that ended around 1 AM) and heard from the public about the proposed town budget. Almost everyone who spoke expressed opposition to the proposed 23% town budget tax hike. On the other hand, Police Chief John Kapica warned the Town Board that people move to Greenburgh for town services. The Town Board will hold a public meeting on the budget this coming Monday evening at 7:15 PM.
