RESOLUTIONS (TITLES ATTACHED)

No. 39 (Resolution Accepting State Matching Funds for 2022 “I Love New York” Tourism Program): Mr. Stead stated that the “I Love New York” Matching Funds has been awarded to the County in the amount of $50,277.00. Last year, it was estimated that the County would be awarded $61,807.00.

No. 67 (Resolution Authorizing a Contract with DNA Diagnostic Center (DDC) for Genetic Testing Services (Social Services Department): Supervisor Howard asked what the Genetic Testing is used for. Mr. Brott stated for paternity testing services.

No. 81 (Resolution Adopting the Fulton County Multi-Jurisdictional All Hazard Mitigation Plan): Mr. Stead queried if all the Towns in the County have adopted the All Hazard Mitigation Plan for their own municipalities. By a show of hands, it appeared some Towns have and others will be at upcoming Town Board meetings.

No. 85 (Resolution Authorizing Hourly Stipend for Vaccination Auxiliary Workers who Assist County Departments with Vaccination PODS): Mr. Stead stated that he is waiting on clarification from the NYS Department of Health regarding the recent mask changes that the Governor announced last week.

He stated that it is likely that the County will be phasing-out the larger Vaccination PODS that are being held at Lexington Center. He stated that the Public Health Director plans to transition to a smaller vaccination pod at the Public Health Department as Spring approaches.

No. 87 (Resolution Approving Contracts and Establishing Accounts for the Fulton County Ambulance Service Incentive Plan (Emergency Management Office): Mr. Callery asked what the $300,000.00 budget amendment is for. Mr. Stead stated because the County has to handle the Medicare and Medicaid pass-through reimbursements and disperse them to the Ambulance providers that the County is contracting with as part of the Ambulance Service Incentive Plan. The other transfers on the Resolution are the actual costs for the contracts in the EMO operating budget.

No. 96 (Resolution Endorsing the Office Space Utilization Plan as Proposed by the Superintendent of Highways and Facilities): Mr. Callery queried if there is a projected date on when the County Veterans’ Service Agency will be relocated. Mr. Stead stated that it would likely be another couple of months.

No. 99 (Resolution Approving Changes to Certain Polling Site Locations in the County of Fulton (Board of Elections): Supervisor Potter asked about the changes being made to City of Gloversville Ward 4. Mr. Stead stated that the Gloversville Housing Authority wouldn’t let Board of Elections use the facility anymore. Mr. Potter expressed that voting counts are “rough” as it is and relocating the polling site will make it worse. Chairman Fagan stated that the Fish House polling site was discussed, during the Finance Committee meeting, to be relocated but the Committee would not approve that because residents in that district would have to drive 22 miles round trip to vote.

Supervisor Young announced that he must Abstain from proposed Resolutions 65 and 69 due to his current employment by FMCC as referenced in each Resolution.

No. 111 (Resolution Objecting to the Partisan Redistricting Plan Adopted by the Democrat Majority in the New York State Legislature): Supervisor Young stated that “carving up these crazy” districts violates democracy. He expressed that it should be “illegal” and compliments his republican colleagues for opposing this. Mr. Stead stated that the Independent Redistricting Commission was created several years ago by statewide public referendum and since then the whole thing “flopped”. Mr. Stead stated that Fulton County was affected dramatically by the Democrat gerrymandering.

 

OLD BUSINESS

Mr. Stead stated that Board Office staff did an excellent job preparing for today’s meeting. He noted that this is the largest number of Resolutions in many years. He stated that he is very proud of the efforts from the staff. Mr. Stead stated that all Resolution topics are not created equal and some of these were complicated and took substantial research.

Resolution No. 111-2022

RESOLUTION OBJECTING TO THE PARTISAN REDISTRICTING PLAN ADOPTED BY THE DEMOCRAT MAJORITY IN THE NEW YORK STATE LEGISLATURE

Supervisor HOWARD offered the following Resolution and moved its adoption:

RESOLUTION OBJECTING TO THE PARTISAN REDISTRICTING PLAN ADOPTED BY THE DEMOCRAT MAJORITY IN THE NEW YORK STATE LEGISLATURE

WHEREAS, the 2022 New York State Legislature’s Redistricting Plan was adopted following failure of the Independent Redistricting Commission process that was created by statewide referendum vote in 2014; and

WHEREAS, the resulting district maps for Congress, State Senate and Assembly were recently approved in the State Legislature with voting along party lines; and

WHEREAS, said Redistricting Plan is a partisan effort that divides Fulton County in an illogical manner and is unfair to voters in the region; and

WHEREAS, the plan divides Fulton County into two (2) separate Senate districts, and three (3) separate Assembly districts; and

WHEREAS, the plan for Assembly inexplicably aligns Town of Broadalbin in the new 112th District, Town of Northampton in the new 114th District and the balance of the County into a newly-aligned 118th Assembly District; and

WHEREAS, the adopted Senate District map splits the County between two (2) disparate districts (47th and 51st); now, therefore be it

RESOLVED, That the Board of Supervisors hereby objects to the partisan Redistricting Plan adopted by the Democrat majority in the New York State Legislature due to its unfair and unrepresentative impacts to voters in the Fulton County region; and, be it further

RESOLVED, That certified copies of this Resolution be forwarded to Governor Hochul, Senate Majority Leader Stewart-Cousins, Assembly Speaker Heastie, Congresswoman Stefanik, Senator Tedisco, Assemblyman Smullen, Independent Redistricting Commission, NYS Board of Board Elections, Fulton County Board of Elections, Budget Director/County Auditor, Administrative Officer/Clerk of the Board and to each and every other person, institution or agency which will further the purport of this Resolution.
