Three Public Hearings Scheduled

Thursday, November 7, 2019

The Legislature, without dissent, authorized public hearings on three issues; all hearings to be held at County Legislature Chambers, located in the Governor Daniel D. Tompkins Building, 121 E. Court Street, Ithaca, beginning at 5:30 p.m.:

  • For its November 19 meeting, a hearing on a proposed Local Law that would establish a $.05 paper carryout bag reduction fee in Tompkins County, as authorized by the NYS Bag Waste Reduction Act and implemented through Title 28 of NYS Environmental Conservation Law. 
  • Also scheduled November 19, a hearing on a proposed Local Law amending Article 26 of the County Charter regarding the Office of Human Rights and Human Rights Commission.  There was considerable discussion related to wording of the draft prior before scheduling the hearing.
  • On December 3, a hearing regarding the 2020 issuance of $10 million in Airport Bond Anticipation Notes (the hearing to be held in accordance with Section 147(f) of the Internal Revenue Code to ensure that the bond issue is exempt from Alternative Minimum Tax.)  The issue will refund and supplement $7.5 million in Airport BANs issued in 2019, supporting the Airport improvement project.
