He said it is difficult to analyze precisely what is going to happen with state and federal funding. The Committee suggested to the Social Planning Com- mittee that they could be taking a look at existing programs and address January 22, 1973 17 themselves to the question that if they are cut back, what would be the corporation of programs they wish to operate. The committee has a policy question which involves what procedures to follow when various areas in this county building need modification or the maintenance of areas for repair and what budget to charge it to — the department in- volved or the building and grounds budget. There will be a report later on that. The committee has been using a graduate student in public ad- ministration which has worked out very well. They asked the Business Administration School if there would be other students available and received an affirmative response. They plan to receive teams of two or three individuals to address themselves to very closely identified projects that they would like to analyze. However, they do not plan to use the students for evaluation purposes. He said if any of the committees are interested in utilizing these services to let John Murphy know.

Mr. Tolles said he called Mr. McClosky, former Deputy Director of the Division of Police, Dept. of Local Government in Albany, to find out why there has been the long delay in their study of the feasibility of con- solidating local police agencies in the county. There has been a reorgani- zation and he has become director of the Division of Criminal Justice.

Mr. Lee reported pertinent to the Award of Bid for the 1973 Proceed- ings of the Board which was tabled at the December 18 meeting. A study was made and it is their recommendation, since the price range was so extensive, that it would appear logical to accept the bid' for the 1973 Proceedings. It was found to be impractical to have a book printed in- house. However, they will continue to study this matter. The Clerk an- nounced that copies of the minutes of meetings will be on each desk. He also spoke of the possibility of giving some of the more important tape recordings of board proceedings to an oral history project.

Under privilege of the floor, Timothy Lawrence, representing the Tompkins County Bail Fund, presented a petition to the Board request- ing the Board of Representatives meet in open session to hear testimony from both public officials and local citizens on the administration of the criminal justice system in Tompkins County. The petition was referred to the Public Safety and Correction Committee. Mrs. Nancy Bereano, advisor for the Welfare Rights Organization, spoke to the board specifically relative to the method and secrecy in which the board handled the case of the Commissioner of Social Services. Various committee chairmen reported as follows: Mr. Lee, Budget and Administration, reported relative to the Dormi- tory Authority situation and there will be a resolution today for revenue anticipation notes in the event the federal aid for the construction and equipment of a building for the Tompkins -Cortland Community College doesn't arrive on time. They discussed the question of whether the county should spend money to, secure a bond rating evaluation. The bidding of county cars will be coming up soon. The committee is suggesting the formation of an insurance advisory committee on an ad hoc basis of some of the local agents to continue to help them to monitor the sizable portfolio they are managing. Relative to hospital financing, it is the February 26, 1973 47 opinion of the committee that they should probably be involved in a market study which would justify whether there is a demand for a 300, 400, or 500 bed hospital and ascertain whether or not there is sufficient cash flow, etc. They are working with the hospital board to work out a satisfactory solution. Mr. Marcham, Health, reported there have been several meetings.

Also, the Mental Health Budget should be ready to present at the next board meeting. Mr. Kerr, Planning and Public Works, said at their February 13 meet- ing, several items in relation to costs at the airport were discussed. The original estimate of local costs for the instrument landing system was to be $10,000—$15,000 to be split between the county and WHCU. Since then, Appalachia Funds have been cut. Therefore, the estimated local cost will be approximately $42,000 to be shared so the county's cost would be approximately $20,000. Also at that meeting the leasing of Boardman House was discussed and is coming along. They have received three ap- plications p.plications for the position of "Keeper of the Covered Bridge" in New- field. There will be a recommendation to the board soon.

Mr. Leary, Public Safety and Correction, said the committee met with the Chief of Police of Cayuga Heights, the Sheriff, and Frank Liguori, Planning Commissioner, relative to the radio communication system. Mr. Dates said there will be a resolution regarding this later in the meet- ing. The next meeting will be March 6. Mr. MacNeil, Social Services, said there hasn't been a committee meet- ing but the Advisory Board of Social Services has met and elected a tem- porary chairman. He said the annual report of the Social Services De- partment is on the desks. He said he spent an interesting afternoon at the Storefront talking with advisors. There was a meeting of the Greater _ Ithaca Activities Center and there was discussion that the Social Services function might be a part of the center on a recreational basis.

March 12, 1973 55 Under privilege of the floor, Mr. Marcham said there was discussion of expanding the duties of the Commissioner of Budget and Administra- tion Position and in talking about the duties of the job, were not specifically talking about an individual. Representative Culligan spoke about the accident on South Aurora Street which resulted in the death of Mrs. Judy Kelemen. The accident was caused by an intoxicated driver. He is concerned about the drunken driver situation and would like to see these people get the punishment they deserve. Various committee chairmen reported as follows: Mr. Lee, Budget and Administration, discussed financial feasibility study pertinent to the proposed modifications of hospital structure. This was a joint meeting between the Budget and Administration and Health Committees and Eugene Arnold, Hospital Administrator, was asked to go back to the Board of Managers to make certain that the level of services being proposed is the correct level of services and report back before the next board meeting to make a recommendation as to what alternative to pursue in contracting with Price Waterhouse, Ernst & Ernst or other appropriate firms to do financial feasibility studies for this significant project. Mr. Golder, Intergovernmental Relations, said they met and will be meeting again on the 19th with Human Rights and Economic Oppor- tunity Corporation. On the 28th they will meet with TC3 Trustees receiving their thoughts on requested input from our board to the Joint Legislative Committee studying community college arrangements. They want to leave the resolution relative to the water contract for the Village of Dryden on the table. Also he withdrew the resolution on the TC3 audit until the committee reviews it. They also discussed some library problems. Mr. Lee said the Budget & Administration Committee has opened com- munications with some organizations which may be suffering because of the potential cutback in federal and state revenues. Senator Smith joined them in a meeting in an attempt to give people participating in the human services area a report on what the prognosis is for funding from the state and what impact of federal cutbacks would be. They are continuing to communicate and keep watch of the needs of these groups and they are going to have to have a hard look at the priority issue particularly in the next fiscal year as to what priorities will receive top preference in the funding for revenue sharing dollars. Mr. Bruce, Planning and Public Works, said there will be a resolution in respect to Agricultural District No. 3 in Groton later in the meeting. He said they are ready to recommend an engineer on the Flood Plain Study. There will be a resolution at the next meeting. They are also ready to recommend selection of an architect for the renovation of the old 56 March 12, 1973 court house. The committee is looking into this and will be making recommendations. There was discussion on general space allocations in the courthouse area. They are also looking into the possibilities of em- ploying an architect to design minor reconstruction of the old T.V. building, if there was continued use. They will be reporting out recom- mendations in respect to the Industrial Park Site. They are squared up with Cornell University in respect to the local share on the moving of the WHCU Tower and the installation of the Instrument Landing Sys- tem at the airport. They will be having a resolution in respect to the Southern Tier East Planning and Development Board. They also dealt with the questions of the continued use of the Caswell Road Sanitary Landfill site and the future for that site. He said there will be a tour of the Tioga County Museum in Owego this afternoon. They are looking at the question of long-term sites for the museum and are looking at some of the possibilities. Mr. Leary, Public Safety and Correction, said Mr. Webster was asked to study the complaints about the jail and the Criminal Justice System in Tompkins County. He asked Mr. Webster to present his report to the full board. Mr. Webster read the report which stated that he found all complaints regarding inhumane treatment in the Tompkins County Jail to be with- out substance. It is his hope that those who have had a part in making these complaints will draw satisfaction from this report and not continue their assault upon Sheriff Howard. In regard to any specific complaint, any relative, friend or interested citizen may approach any member of this board and get immediate answers to any legitimate concern. In addition to being able to talk with members of this board, the sheriff has in the past taken citizens through and will continue to allow any legitimately concerned citizen to visit the jail within reason. Friends, relatives, and persons concerned must also be aware of the fact that at the present, the Tompkins County Jail has a program for inmates which exceeds any in this area of New York State and may indeed exceed any for the whole of New York State. Friends, relatives, concerned citizens and the press should be aware of the existence of the Jail Program Action Committee, which has in addition to the outsiders on the committee, two inmate members. Over the past two years, this committee working with Sheriff Howard has installed a library program, exercise program, recre- ation room, BOCES training program, religious groups, drug therapy groups, etc. Section B of the report is in regard to the dissatisfaction expressed by the Tompkins County Bail Fund with the Criminal Justice System as it functions in Tompkins County. Mr. Webster, at the request of the Public Safety Committee, met with representatives of the bail fund in response to their letter of January 13, 1973 to Board Chairman James Graves. On February 6, 1973, he and Representative Miller met with them. From February of 1971 to the present the Bail Fund has provided $9500.00 in March 12, 1973 57 bail for about 70 persons. This has been the principal activity to the present. Conditions in the Jail are not the principal concern of the bail fund representatives. The main concern of the Tompkins Bail Fund is in regard to what they feel is excessive bail. They also are concerned about our present system of appointing attorneys to indigent defendants. The Bail Fund's feeling is that the Board of Representatives should call a pub- lic meeting to discuss this issue. It is the recommendation of Mr. Webster that the Bail Fund representatives meet with the full Public Safety Com- mittee for consideration of this request. Mr.. Leary also reported that he received a letter from the Sealer of Weights and Measures stating he will be retiring in October of this year.

He said they took up a num- ber of items of business which will come in the form of resolutions later in the meeting. He mentioned statements that Mr. Tolles presented and also a set of questions that he posed to the Board of Managers. The com- mittee has a request from a real estate organization to indicate whether we were interested in selling the hospital. It was discussed and decided that it was not serious enough communication to reply to as it was only a form letter. It was referred to the Budget 8e Administration Committee.

Mr. Graves said he is very disturbed because Tompkins County is re- sponsible for its own clients and clients are being brought in from other counties. Mr. Tolles questioned if the $52,000 originally appropriated for both agencies was to be all used for Challenge. Mr. Golder said the $52,000 amount came during preparation of ballpark estimates for the 1973 budget. They were working with figures supplied by both agencies on the basis of a combined program. Because of one large item, a peculiarity of a certain kind of state aid, ARC had income which is not available in this budget which made a substantial difference to that combined pro- gram.

He questioned what the board's involvement should be relative to the Bell Station proposal. This matter will be discussed at the Executive Meeting. He also mentioned that he receives memos from the federal government asking the board to react in 10 days and sign in or out of whole programs. It will be difficult for the county to respond by the deadline time. It was suggested a letter be written to them indicating the matter is under consideration and will be hearing from the board soon.

He reported they had a request from New York State Elec- tric & Gas Corp. pertinent to a request for tax exemption under the prop- erty law which allows corporations and other entities who develop anti- pollution devices, to apply for tax exemption. If the county were to grant this, a local law would have to be passed by Tompkins County as well as the municipalities affected. In response to the request, he is call- ing a meeting of the Supervisors of the Towns of Lansing, Groton and Dryden and the Budget & Administration Committee to meet with the appropriate officials to discuss the matter further. He also reported on the problem of personnel being appointed to posi- tions where they are not qualified for federal and state reimbursement and committee agreed with the Personnel Committee that no further appointments will be made unless they meet approval for reimburse- ment for state and federal funds.

Mr. Webster explained the duties of the proposed assistant probation Officer position and was referred to the Personnel Commissioner for re- view. The committee met with the Tompkins County Bail Fund and dis- cussed their request for a public meeting regarding the criminal justice system in Tompkins County and it was decided it wouldn't be proper or legal for this board to conduct such a meeting. Members of the Bail Fund had a number of positive questions which relate to the future of the area of the criminal justice system as far as the county is concerned and a number of questions relative to planning. He hopes perhaps in the future they may come up with a format for considering the whole area of planning as far as the criminal justice system is concerned. Mrs. Schickel reported that work is progressing on the construction of the Community College in spite of weather conditions. Mr. Bruce, Planning and Public Works, said they met on March 20 and approved a contract with Allegany Airlines providing security space at the airport. They have been concerned with the status of the Heights 68 March 26, 1973 Restaurant and are exploring the possibility of other concessionnaires. They are advertising for radio equipment to go with the new tower. He also reported that the refuse disposal contracts are reaching termination so they are advertising for bids for the areas served by the Seymour and Landstrom sites. They also have under discussion courses of action with respect to the Caswell Road site. This site is being used up at a faster rate than originally anticipated and they are looking at alternatives which might extend the life of the site. He said the Historical Society will be meeting with the Intergovernmental Relations and Planning and Public Works Committees April 2. They are ready to make recommenda- tion to the board in respect to the location. They will be displaced from the old courthouse when work begins.. They have been looking into other alternatives. The committee has been negotiating with an architect to work on the restoration of the old courthouse. They asked the County Planning Board to advise them in respect to two items 1) the housing needs associated with the new industry near the airport and 2) the trans- portation priorities. He feels the Planning Board is a very useful re- source. The Planning Board has appointed a committee to look into a form of organization, etc. and will be bringing a report back to this board. Mr. Abbott, Personnel, read a letter regarding non-reimbursible em- ployees. The Budget and Administration Committee will be presenting a resolution on this matter later in the meeting. Mr. Marcham, Health, reported that the Health Committee met with the Budget & Administration committee to discuss the proposed hospital facility study. The hospital board indicated they preferred that only one study be conducted. There is a resolution on the agenda which they will table regarding the hospital feasibility study. There will be a vacancy on the Board of Managers July 1. He noted the committee has been represented by the Commissioner of Budget and Administration in discussion about the creation of a county office for the aging. He also re- ported that there was a public meeting last Wednesday to hear the Extendicare Inc. proposal. He said if the recommendation on hospital facilities is not made by June, it would probably be best to postpone the final decision until September because of the uncertainty of arranging meetings during the summer. There will be a meeting March 27 to dis- cuss some personnel matters and the hospital. He also said they are con- cerned that an important decision for the county is going to be in- fluenced at a public meeting April 10 to discuss Bell Station proposal.

A resolution awarding bids for the Fire Coordinator's vehicle is on the agenda today.

The com- mittee considered thematter of the architects for the restoration of the old courthouse and for changes necessary to Building C. The county continues to have under examination, the problems of disposal of the Heights Restaurant at the airport. They considered the matter of an access road to the Industrial Park.

Mr. Graves mentioned the proposed Local Law No. 3 — 1973 pro- . viding for the disposing of abandoned vehicles within the County of Tompkins had only two changes.

The Local Law was Laid on the Table until the next meeting. Mr. Marcham, Health, reported the committee met March 27 to try to decide who would be handling questions in the health area, particular- ly the whole range of hospital related questions and tried to break them down and make decisions. They decided they were not interested in inviting any other proprietary firms. There are a number of other firms,. but Extendicare Inca is one of the largest. They feel if these firms were interested in making a proposal, they would. The question was raised of dropping the consideration of proprietary hospitals but this will be referred to the Executive Committee. However, the committee decided to continue to consider the Extendicare proposal. Some of the other choices are a public authority and a private voluntary hospital. He also said John Murphy, Commissioner of Budget and Administra- tion, will explore the matter of evaluating Extendicare in terms of fiscal responsibility and report back by the next meeting. Another question considered is what services the hospital would provide. He said next 76 April 16, 1973 Wednesday and Thursday, there will be a trip to Louisville, Kentucky to Extendicare Inc. Harry Kerr, Gary Lee, Eugene Arnold, two members of the Board of Managers, two members of the medical profession and Ruth DeWire of the Comprehensive Health Planning Council will be going. The next question dealt with the primary health care program. It appeared for a long time that there was little chance of federal funding and for that reason asked the Health Planning Council to re- port on what is wanted in primary care. It now appears the funding picture is brighter. Some decisions will have to be made soon. Pentab organization asked to appear before the Health Committee as they are proposing a clinic and health spa in Dryden. Another area being con- sidered is the establishment of a county health planning council. He also mentioned that they will be acting on the feasibility study at the hospital at their next committee meeting. Another matter which they are going to refer to the Executive Committee is the question of whether the county is going to intersect in some way in the decision making on Bell Station. There will be a committee meeting on April 24 at 8:00 p.m. and May 9 at 8:00 p.m. Mr. MacNeil, Social Services, said the committee has met many times. He said there was a policy when a board member had a question about Social Services he would refer it to that committee. In this way the com- mittee will know that the board wants to know. He also said they are in the process of selecting a new commissioner of Social Services. They have received approximately 84 applications. It was pointed out that the state may take over the operation of the Social Services Department. Mrs. Schickel. reported that 43 percent of the general construction at the Community College has been completed and stored; electrical — 30 per cent; plumbing — 64 per cent; heating, ventilating, airconditioning — 46 per cent.

Carter Rice, James Rice, John Rice and Mrs. James Terry spoke asking that their land be included in this district. There was concern about the possible limitations for the use of the land. Mr. Kerr said it puts no limitation on the land or what one might want to do with it. He said the agricultural district is for the protection of active agriculture land. Arthur Fellows was concerned that this matter would be delayed again. It was suggested that the board approve a modified district and take the changes into account and send it to Albany for review. The hearing was closed at 10:28 a.m. and regular board business convened. Under privilege of the floor, Mr. Lee spoke about the new sign at the landfill site at West Dryden which prohibits people from picking things up from that site. He has received many phone calls pertinent to this matter. Mr. Stevenson said it was in the original proposal that there would be no picking allowed. Various committee chairmen reported as follows: Mr. Lee, Budget & Administration, said a very important meeting was held at the hospital with the Board of Managers, Ernst & Ernst, the Administrator, Chairman of the Board, Touchette Corporation and the Budget and Administration and Health Committees. They feel they have reached a satisfactory solution pertinent to the management prob- lem they have been experiencing recently. He said there is a resolution on the agenda for "unfreezing" the position of controller at the hospital. He reported that the committee met this morning with representation from the Groton Community Services and this is another of our human affairs type programs in the county that is experiencing financial diffi- culties. They are unsure of a solution at this point. They continue to keep communication open to all of these groups. They continue to main- tain the position that all revenue sharing money will be held in escrow for the time being. He said a copy has been received of the Sales Tax Bill pertinent to the resolution passed at the last meeting on the distri- bution of sales tax to villages on the basis of population the same as towns. Also, he sent a letter to Senator Smith and Assemblywoman Cook pertinent to a resolution adopted at the last meeting advocating con- sistency in the Real Property Tax Law for capital investments for pollu- tion control. Also, he reported on a possible feasibility study of pro- jected needs for the hospital by Tribrook Associates. The committee advocated this from the start. There will be a resolution on this later in the meeting. Mr. Lee, Chairman of the Budget and Administration Committee, sub- mitted the following report relative to mortgage tax monies received April 30, 1973 97 and the allocation thereof for the period of October 1, 1972 through March 31, 1973: Caroline $ 3,032.65 Danby 2,601.17 Dryden 13,341.27 Enfield 1,240.25 Groton 4,315.09 Ithaca — City 22,753.19 Ithaca — Town 37,850.70 Lansing 15,971.49 Newfield 3,137.84 Ulysses 4,412.86 $108,656.51 Your committee finds that of the amount of $13,341.27 to which the Town of Dryden is entitled there should be paid to the incorporated Village of Dryden the sum of $881.84, and to the incorporated Village of Freeville the sum of $229.93; of the amount of $4,315.09 to which the Town of Groton is entitled there should be paid to the incorporated Village of Groton the sum of $958.32; of the amount of $37,850.70 to which the Town of Ithaca is entitled there should be paid to the in- corporated Village of Cayuga Heights the sum of $6,434.42; and of the amount of $4,412.86 to which the Town of Ulysses is entitled there should be paid to the incorporated Village of Trumansburg the sum of $680.45. Your committee therefore recommends the adoption of a resolution to be presented later in the meeting. Gary A. Lee, Chairman Harris B. Dates Edward P. Abbott Robert L. Bruce Marion Schickel At this time Frank Liguori, Commissioner of Planning, presented two alternative proposals for the use of space in the old courthouse and com- plex. The Planning Committee over a period of several years has dis- cussed various proposals on how to best use the space in the buildings in the courthouse complex. Now that a grant has been made by the Dept. of HUD to restore the old courthouse for contemporary use, the opportunity is here to finalize the concept for the use of all the build- ings. They are in final negotiations for the architects selected at the last meeting. In those agreements there will be a clause saying the architects will not proceed from one phase to another except by written permission of the Planning Committee. Proposal "A" is for the Board of Repre- sentatives to consider the possibility of moving from their present facilities to the second floor of the old courthouse to include the offices 98 April 30, 1973 of the Clerk and the vacated board space would then become another courtroom to be patterned similar to the existing courtroom. The Bud- get & Administration Offices would move to the first floor of the old courthouse and the District Attorney would utilize the vacated space of the Budget Office. Judge Simpson's office will be vacated because of his retirement and it is not clear under this plan how these rooms would be used at this point. The DeWitt Historical Society and Economic Op- portunity Corporation will move from the old courthouse and seek other quarters. Some of the Sheriff's offices would be located on the first floor of the old courthouse and the basement area would be used for security. Under this plan they have no clearly defined use for the Boardman House. Building C would be improved and function as it is now. Alternate "B" would consider moving the offices of Judge Bryant to the first floor of the old courthouse and there would be another court- room on the second floor. The space vacated by Judge Bryant in the present courthouse would be used for the Budget & Administration Offices. It would make it possible for the District Attorney to use the space presently used by Budget & Administration. Some of the Sheriff's Offices and possibly other departments could be located on the first floor. The Board will need to decide on which concept they wish to use. Discussion followed and Mrs. Wolverton, County Clerk, spoke objecting to splitting the courts in separate buildings which Alternative B calls for. The Chairman referred these alternatives to the Planning and Public Works Committee. Mr. Golder, Intergovernmental Relations, said Mr. Stevenson has re- ceived formal estimates from Personius and Wadsworth in regard to the library problems of air-conditioning and lighting. He will be submitting copies to the library. He also said there is no provision in Frank Liguori's report for space for the Economic Opportunity Corporation and the Historical Society. FOC is negotiating with the Ithaca Activities Center for space. He said they have been providing space at no cost to the county except for maintenance. A request will be made for appropria- tion for rent necessary for them to occupy space for one year. They have no funds of their own for this purpose. The committee met with the Planning Board in regard to the Historical Society. They are awaiting determination on whether or not there is any possibility of their return- ing to the old courthouse before they went to serious consideration of their proposal to either buy the Tectonics building or rent in the Clinton House. Another possibility comes up that the costs as submitted by the Historical Society either for rental for the Clinton House or the purchase of the Tectonics Building runs around $20,000 per year. It has been expressed by some that it might go a long way toward renovating Board- man House if the Historical Society were to occupy it. Mr. Bruce, Planning and Public Works, met April 7 and the next meeting will be May 7 at noon. As is evident from Mr. Liguori's presen- April 30, 1973 99 'ration, they are proceeding to identify alternatives in respect to the old courthouse and Building C. At the next meeting there will be a resolu- tion to accept an alternate. He also reported that the Hinkley Founda- tion has withdrawn their offer to lease the Boardman House. The county will now advertise for other possible sale or lease. He said the County Planning Board will meet Wednesday evening to discuss adopting a position in respect to Bell Station proposal. He said the Planning Board is comprised of representatives of various interests and constituencies throughout the county and they can communicate to this board, through the Planning Board, the wishes of the various groups they represent. It has had a committee studying its future organization as the board was established temporarily. They will be ready shortly with their recom- mendation. Mr. Webster, Public Safety and Correction, met on April 25 and dis- cussed space needs in the District Attorney's Office and the need for the ladies lounge to be locked on days when Grand Jury meets.

They also reviewed the grant application which was approved and submitted to the New York State Division of Criminal Justice. A resolution will be presented at the next meeting of the Board for approval of concept. Each board member will have a copy of the application. He also reported on their continuing consideration of appointment of a Criminal Justice Advisory Planning Committee. A resolution will be presented at the next meeting for approval. They have identified problem areas that they would like this group to be looking at: 1) System of defending indigent defendants, 2) concern about courtroom space needs, 3) court needs and the re- curring request from one of the judges for a court attendant, 1) a recur- ring problem which has been suggested by the District Attorney as being crucial in terms of the operation of the criminal justice system, is the time from arrest to the time of ultimate disposition as this time seems to be lengthening and presenting an increasing problem. They are also faced with jail space needs. Mr. Culligan asked if this committee could include in their studies a training program for personnel to operate the Portapower Unit at the Sheriff's Department.

He said the Department is in the state of moving in a certain direction in the near future. On January 1, 1974, the Federal Government is probably going to take over aid to the Blind and .Disabled. This would mean they would go under the auspices of Social Security. There is a possibility of the Medical Assistance and Public Assistance being taken care of by the State.

Mr. Leary read the statement of the Board of Health in favor of the construction of the proposed Bell Station Nuclear Plant. Various committee chairmen reported as follows: Mr. Lee, Budget and Administration Committee, reported that at the board meeting on May 29, they will take up the Groff Associates proposal pertinent to tax stabilization. He also said Thomas Payne, Director of Assessment, has made a reported request by their commit- tee of a three-year study pertinent to the tax exemptions being granted in Tompkins County and also, a listing of the wholly tax exempt areas as well as what percentage of taxable property is available in each municipality. The total assessment roll has been growing about com- parable in the last three years to properties that a portion which is taxable for tax purposes, roughly 21/2 per cent per year and the total assessment roll increase at about the same percentage as the taxable portion of the assessment roll. Exemptions are granted in the following categories: Exemptions on real property for the aged; veterans' exemp- tions for property purchased, or improvement; clergymen, which is mandatory; agricultural and horticultural lands; and the wholly exempt property of which there are 16 major categories. It is interesting to note that the City of Ithaca in the last three years was 61.5 per cent property wholly exempt from taxation; Town of Ithaca 49.8 per cent. In 1970, 56 per cent of assessment roll was available for tax purposes, 42.8 being wholly exempt; in 1971, still was showing 56 per cent taxable, 42 per cent wholly exempt; 1972, 56.7 per cent and 42 per cent wholly exempt. The community which shows the most positive growth for taxable is the Town of Lansing. He said letters have been sent to our legislators 110 May 14, 1973 in Albany, pertinent to the request for exemption by N.Y.S.E. & G. Corporation for precipitators at Milliken Station. Chairman Graves wrote to the legislature pertinent to the way the court reform is being proposed to be funded which would net about one half million dollar loss to Tompkins. County. Regarding revenue sharing funds, he has been receiving letters from groups requesting money. They have a competent individual taking under considerationthe possibility of heading an advisory group which is going to update the report made by the Planning Commissioner, plus information from Mrs. Pettengil and her group, as to what the agencies are in Tompkins County that are delivering human services, who they are, what kind of people do they employ, salary paid, etc. They feel there is too much duplication. Mr. Golder, Intergovernmental Relations Committee, said the com- mittee met May 8th and received a report on the Historical Society; discussed request from the County Fair for funding and this will be brought up again; discussed two positions at the community college; EOC space situation; and scheduled a meeting for May 30 at 7:30 p.m. Mrs. Sisler read a letter from Historic Ithaca urging the county to seriously consider repairing the Boardman House and use it for its own activities. They also requested permission to use volunteers to re - stack the brick rubble from the chimney that was torn down recently. This request was referred to. the Planning and Public Works Committee. The Chairman adjourned the meeting at 10:30 a.m. to hold a public hearing relating to proposed addition to the area leased by Allegany. The Clerk read the notice and upon hearing no questions or objections, the public hearing was closed at 10:35 a.m. Mr. Bruce, Planning and Public Works, reported that the Environ- mental Management Council and the County Planning Board met to discuss problems associated with the Bell Station proposals. The Com- mittee met May 7th and asked Mr. Liguori, Planning Commissioner, to set up a meeting with representatives from the New York State Department of Transportation, Town of Lansing and merchants, rela- tive to the intersection area of Route 13 at Triphammer Road, to see if they can resolve some of the problems. They also asked him to look into the possibility of asking the present mechanical engineers, Personi- ous and Wadsworth, to take on as part of their responsibility any archi- tectural services necessary in establishing radio network in the Sheriffs Department rather than going to separate arrangement with an architect. They are going to recommend participation and application of this county to serve as researchers for the Department of Transportation on a study with respect to economic impact of the revision of Route 13. They asked Mr. Liguori to look into the possibility that the county might accelerate some of the development of Route 96 on the west end by providing additional capital to get a bridge across the inlet. 'May 14, 1973 11.1 He also reported that according to the Counsel for the State Depart- ment of Environmental Conservation, theaction the board took in respect to the Agricultural District in the Town of Ulysses, was not possible. There will be resolutions concerning this later in the meeting. Other items discussed were the advertising of the Boardman House for sale or lease now that the Hinkley Foundation has withdrawn their of- fer. They are continuing to explore the option in respect to the use of the second floor of the Old Court House and are looking into the possibility of using it for court purposes. Mr. Webster reported that the County Probation co -hosted with the N.Y.S. Division of Probation a volunteer conference. Guest speaker there is regarded as the originator of the volunteer court program in the United States. The utilization of volunteers from Probation is an eight -county pilot project and if successful will be used as a model for further development throughout the state. Mr. Marcham, Health Committee, said the idea of primary care service in the county is moving forward. Mrs. Ruth DeWire and Miss Bonnie Howard have drafted a plan of organizing this. They received for consideration a proposal that the county double its contribution to Health Planning and get more service. Primary Care is the idea of providing clinics around the county. The Committee will have a recom- mendation on the appointment of a new Health Commissioner later ih the meeting. Also, they have been meeting with the hospital to discuss the problem of their putting their billing on computers. It was agreed that John Murphy will monitor progress between now and August 31. He said they also discussed the increase of room rates at the hospital and said they were not notified and expect to be advised in the future. He said that an individual pays more for a room than one who has Blue Cross Insurance. This matter is being investigated. He said that he will be keeping a file on his desk of letters written to him concerning the hospital after receiving their permission. He has received the report from John Murphy on the financial state of Extendicare. The County has not agreed yet on what they want in the way of a hospital as it is a compli- cated question so they agreed to tell them what the hospital planning committee generally agrees at this point. They received a County Plan- ning Board recommendation on the site but took no action at this time. He said the contract for employees appears to say no compensatory time off can be given to supervisory employees. It also seems to imply time off can be given at the discretion of the department head. It was the decision of the committee that if one leaves the county or accumu- lates these hours, one can not be paid. The Personnel Department is drafting a statement to clarify this. He gave the timetable regarding the hospital as follows: A visit from Extendicare, Inc. in early June following which they will get their 112 May 14, 1973 proposal and the Board might be in a position to vote on the proposal in July; the Board of Managers proposal will arrive in August, assuming the representatives have not said yes to Extendicare; the hearings will be arranged for September on the proposals and the Board of Repre- sentatives will vote in October for the final solution. Mr. Golder, Intergovernmental Relations, reported that negotiations have continued between the Mental Health Department and the Associa- tion of Retarded Children regarding a pending appeal for direct funding from the State Hygiene Department. The Mental Health Board and the Committee want to see some progress toward the combination of Chal- lenge Industries and ARC before there is any reconsideration of a con- tract. Mrs. Schickel, Intergovernmental Relations, reported that the com- munity college general construction is 50 per cent completed or stored and is progressing well. Mr. Liguori said there was a meeting with the Department of Transportation and an agreement was reached regarding the entrance. Mr. Leary, Public Safety and Correction, asked about the problem of sewage disposal at the community college which is being held up and if it would impede the opening of the college. Mr. Lee said the problem involves the Draper Egg Company in Dryden which is emitting a pollu- tion level higher than it should be causing operational problems in the sewer plant. He understands the Village of Dryden's position is that they are looking for much support from the Health Department to try to clamp down on this particular customer.

At this time Chairman Graves declared the minutes of May 14, approved. Under privilege of the floor, the following people spoke to the Board: Bente King of the Finger Lakes Group of the Sierra Club, said they have analyzed the plans of the NYSE&G Corporation for the proposed Bell Station nuclear power plant as presented in . the Nuclear Utility Services Environmental Feasibility report. The group opposes these plans because the NUS report does not adequately cover many important environmental considerations involved with the proposed plant. They feel the Bell Station poses risks to present and future generations which are too great to be justified by the benefits of the plant. They feel a comprehensive national energy policy, integrated with other resource planning is urgently needed. They are currently studying methods for the conservation of electrical energy and will make its findings available to the public in the near future. Jane Rice, Co -Chairman of the Coalition to Conserve Cayuga Lake, said they were presenting the Board with 2,583 more signatures of people opposing Bell Station, which brings the total number of signatures to 5,839. Of these, she said 3,256 were Ithaca residents; 766 were residents of universities or college dormitories; 475 were Trumansburg residents; 333 were from Lansing; 97 from Interlaken; 78 from Newfield; 93 — people living outside a 100 mile radius of Lansing who use the lake for recreation. The rest came from assorted villages and towns around the lake. They urged the Board to go on record opposing the construction of Bell Station. Walter Lynn, of the school of Civil and Environmental Engineering at Cornell, said the energy crisis is not an issue in this decision but whether you agree that the best long-term use of Cayuga Lake is to serve as a cooling basin with all risks. May 29, 1973 123 Alfred Eipper, Chairman of the Scientific Advisory Citizens Com- mittee to Save Cayuga Lake, said there are too many leadingexperts on nudear engineering and nuclear physics who feel that enough is not known about some of the still unanswered safety problems. Robert 0. Pohl, resident of the Town of Lansing, focused on one point associated with the nuclear energy program in general, that of the nuclear waste. The problem of permanent waste disposal is not solved and at this point, it is unclear how it can be solved eternally. He said it will be our responsibility to decide whether we want to make the step that will commit all future generations, and possibly even destroy them. Cornelia Hill, Chairman of the Citizens Committee to Save Cayuga Lake, said they oppose construction of any nuclear plant on Cayuga Lake. Alex MacDaniels, Cayuga Lake Preservation Assn., said they believe construction of such a plant on the lake would be unwise. John Gill from Trumansburg said he feels what happens to Cayuga Lake should be up to the people who live here. Chairman Graves said the report of the Social Planning Council's Ad hoc Committee on revenue sharing, has been received. He feels it is a discouraging report because a human services group would be serving so many people. He referred the report to the Budget and Administra- tion and Social Services Committees. Mr. Lee, Budget and Administration, said a progress report was re- ceived from the Legislature pertinent to the fact that the sales tax bill will be passed Saturday and will go to the governor for signature. That is the bill which would distribute proceeds on the basis of population to towns in particular that have villages. They had a letter from the Town of Ulysses requesting to receive its sales tax revenue in cash rather than credit. He said the ballpark budgets are out to various department heads; a meeting has been scheduled with President Bahar of TC3 to begin to assess what kind of budgetary impact there will be when moving to the new site; there will be a resolution advocating a study in Social Services area for reimbursement from the federal government; a letter regarding Tompkins County revenue sharing monies is being prepared to send to the federal government. They feel it is too early to predict precise impact of these monies. He said each board member was given a copy of proposed charter changes for the office of Budget & Administration and asked for board comments. He said there will be resolutions regard- ing the old courthouse and building "c" this morning. 124 May 29, 1973 Mr. Golder, Intergovernmental Relations, met and discussed with the DeWitt Historical Society, their proposal to lease space from Historic Ithaca at the Clinton House; discussed with EOC and the City Youth Bureau the question of year-round youth employment program. Mr. Bruce, Planning and Public Works, met with Historical Society and there will be a resolution later in the meeting with respect to the boiler room at the County Home which will need two furnaces to be extensively repaired. There will be a resolution presented today to de- clare an emergency so they can bypass the usual bidding procedures because the job is so complex. They need to have someone with knowl- edge of the equipment and operate on a time and material basis. The committee agreed to grant permission for Morse Chain to clear county property which is proposed for sale by industrial development organi- zation. He said Mr. Stevenson has reported on some of the activities at the Caswell Road Landfill Site such as the use of compactors, etc. There are ample materials to indicate the possibility of extending the lifetime period of the site out to the original estimate. They decided not to buy more land in the area. They will be making a recommendation on this later. He also reported that the Instrument Landing System at the airport is progressing and are negotiating for the disposal of the Heights Restaurant. Their next committee meeting is scheduled for June 6. Mr. Leary, Public Safety and Correction, reported that twenty appli- cants have been received for the position of Sealer of Weights and Measures and they will be making a recommendation. They will be asking the new Sealer to make a daily report sheet. There will be a resolution relative to the grant application for a half -way house. They had a request from the Probation Department for an appropriation and there will be a resolution at the next meeting. Mrs. Tolles contacted the State regarding the study of the feasibility of consolidating the various police agencies in Tompkins County to see why there has been such a long delay. It is being held up because of the lack of cooperation from the city. The committee is considering the upgrading of fire dispatchers. The contract for SPCA has not been signed yet because they want to clarify the contract. They also discussed the Probation appoint- ment being upgraded. Mr. Marcham, Health, was unhappy that the Bell Station resolution was not on the agenda today. He reported they had received a standard form from ALPHA, Regional Health Agency, asking for comments and recommendations regarding funding for emergency health communica- tion system. They will consider the question raised by the Council as to when Extendicare makes a proposal to us, they are in position of holding public meetings. He said any hospital or health services program that requires federal approval for state licensing requires action by the Health Planning Council. Assuming we get an offer from Extendicare May 29, 1973 125 before one from hospital, the council will plan to hold public meetings. He said the primary care proposals which have been discussed are still under discussion. They will take action at their next meeting on the need for a secretary for the Health Planner. They asked the Council, Social Planning Council, and Board of Managers, for comments on whether they feel the hospital should continue to be private owned or if they thought some other arrangement would be appropriate, and they will be discussing this; they will get the first progress report of EDP at the hospital business office at their next meeting. He said they are sympathetic to the proposed change in the. Agriculture and Markets Law regarding the handling and control of dogs and the updating of the law. They also plan to discuss at their next meeting with the Health Board and staff on various non-nuclear problems facing the lake and also on the problems of water and land pollution. He also mentioned that ARC is still operating. Mr. Lee, Budget and Administration, said the hospital admini- trator is looking into the problem of why an individual pays more for a hospital room than an insurance carrier. Mrs. Schickel said work is progressing at the TC3 construction site and the 48 heating and ventilating units were put in place by helicopter. Interiors were presented by CRS and they are looking into those.

Phaseout Modifica- tion under Section 5 of the Emergency Employment Act packet received from N.Y.S.

Under privilege of the floor, the following people spoke to the board giving their opinions and views on the proposed Bell Station Nuclear Plant: June 11. 1973 133 James Cortright, Executive Secretary of the Ithaca -Cortland Builders Exchange, presented two boxes of cards that he said had been signed by ordinary people from all occupations. He said there were about 4,000 to 5,000 signatures for the construction and about 150 signatures against the construction. He said the cards were put out by interested individuals and not by a group. He said the cards were put in various locations and anyone interested in signing them did so. He said the unemployment rate is very low and the construction of such a plant would employ many people. It is his hope personally and as a representative of the construction industry, that after everyone has been heard, NYSE8cG will build the station here. Mr. John McAllister, 100 W. Buffalo Street, said the statement in the Ithaca Journal said that people in this area are opposed to Bell Station 15-1. He said that is ridiculous because he feels it is not correct. He is in favor of the construction. Mr. Fudger said for the economic growth of the area that Bell Station is needed. He feels the arguments about pollution do not warrant dis- continuance of the construction of the plant. Also, he feels more dollars on the tax rolls would help and there have been many nuclear plants built and there has not been any adverse effect. He feels the plant should be built. Mrs. Dooley Kieffer, representing the League of Women Voters, read a statement which said they can neither support nor oppose Bell Station as such since they don't know what specific form and operating charac- teristics this new version of "Cayuga No. 1" might take. If, however, Bell Station is planned according to the NUS recommendations, the League will oppose it, because the League is opposed to thermal (and radioactive) pollution of Cayuga Lake. The League urges a definite "go-slow" — "when in doubt, don't" attitude toward nuclear plants in general. Herbert Mahr, representing the Steering Committee of the new Demo- cratic Coalition of Tompkins County, read their statement opposing plans of NYSE&G Corp. to construct a nuclear power plant on Cayuga Lake and urged that immediate consideration be given by both users and producers to means of stabilizing energy demand, rather than to further_ stimulating increased consumption. Such a policy would lessen the risk of both power shortages and nuclear accidents until less dan- gerous and environmentally damaging technology can he developed. Shirley Rice, Betsy Darlington of Ithaca, and Mary Randall of Ithaca, and Nora Grimm of Lansing, all spoke in opposition to the proposed power plant. Jane Rice, Co -Chairman of the Coalition to Save Cayuga Lake, pre- 134 June 11. 1973 sented 2,307 signatures opposing the power plant which brings the total to 8,146. The Coalition urges the Board to oppose construction of Bell Station not only because of the many conflicting opinions among scien- tists but more important because of the large number of people who oppose Bell Station from Tompkins County. Mr. George Hughes said he feels New York State Electric & Gas Corporation should_ be allowed to make application for the power plant. He feels the federal and state agencies have the proper knowledge and experience to make a decision. Elaine Gill said she has attended many meetings relative to Bell Station and obtained much information and found there is too much disagree- ment among experts. She urged that the Board oppose Bell Station. John Gill, Town of Ulysses, said the Coalition to Conserve Cayuga Lake conducted a survey three days last week in the downtown business District of Ithaca to determine just how people were reacting. There were 50% against; 39% — undecided and 10% were for the construction. They urged the board to listen to the people and to follow a most cautious approach and they believe the truly cautious and responsible approach is to oppose construction. David Hoffman, a teacher at Trumansburg, brought his class in to observe the board meeting. He said they have studied Bell Station and are interested in the issue. One of his students, Shawn Brown, said he has collected about 500 signatures and the majority said they did not want the plant. 1'Iary Weiner spoke in favor of the proposed Bell Station. RESOLUTION NO. 154 — Endorsement of Proposed Bell Nuclear Power Station Mr. Golder offered the following resolution and moved its adoption: RESOLVED, That the Board of Representatives of Tompkins County, hav- ing considered the need of present and . future generations for additional sources of electrical energy, confident of adherance to maximum safety standards in the operation of a nuclear power plant by regulatory agencies and the owner, and anticipating a design incorporating such measures, in- cluding cooling towers, as will assure minimum thermal pollution of Cayuga Lake, endorse the proposal of New York State Electric and Gas Corporation for the construction of the Bell Nuclear Power Station, and be it RESOLVED, further, That copies of this resolution be forwarded to the New York State Electric and Gas Corporation, the Commission of the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation, the Atomic Energy Commission, and such other agencies of government which may have re- sponsibility for review and approval of such proposal. Seconded by Mr. Leary. Mr. Golder said this nation has had experience June 11. 1973 135 in the construction of nuclear power plants and there is nothing in that experience that indicates to him that the risks involved are so great that they can't be accepted. He feels the demonstrated need for additional sources of electricity is clear. There are unresolved questions about thermal pollution of the lake and he feels his resolution indicates, on the basis of present knowledge, the hope that the design is going to pre- vent thermal pollution of the lake. It was Moved by Mr. Dates, seconded by Mr. MacNeil, that the words "such measures including cooling towers" be deleted and add "in- corporating environmental safeguards required by state and federal agencies". A roll call was taken and resulted as follows: Ayes — Repre- sentatives Abbott, Culligan, Dates, Holden, Kerr, Leary, Lee, MacNeil, and Graves — 9. Noes — Bruce, Golder, Marcham, Miller, Schickel, Tolles and Webster — 7. Motion Carried. Mrs. Schickel asked if it was appropriate to take a position like this' particularly when there are so many unanswered questions and un- knowns and feels they have insufficient knowledge to base a judgment. She feels it inappropriate to take a stand. It was Moved by Mr. Culligan, seconded by Mr. Kerr, That this reso- lution be tabled for forty-five minutes. Ayes — Representatives Culligan, Dates, Kerr, MacNeil, and Miller — 5. Noes — Abbott, Bruce, Golder, Holden, Leary, Lee, Marcham, Schickel, Tolles, Webster and Graves — 11. Motion to Table Lost. Mr. Dates and Mr. Kerr read their resolutions. Mrs. Tolles reported that she had asked opinions of 417 people which is 38% of the registered voters in her district. Of these people 25 or 6% had no opinion; 88 or 21% are for Bell Station; 195 or 47% are against; 109 or 26% want more guarantees ecology -wise and safety -wise. She said she will be obliged to vote no on this issue. Mr. Marcham said various boards and bodies in the county have made comments to this board with their reasons. His feeling is the resolution is unreflective of the concerns expressed here. He said it is known to us that there is going to be damage to the lake and no one denies that heat- ing the lake will damage it. He noted this industry is uninsurable and es- sentially unmanageable. Unmanageable is cited in Science Magazine, Vol. 180, simply because the insurance companies are unwilling to take on the nature of the risks involved. He considers it an experiment since this is the first time a lake of this size, used as a water supply, is used for a nuclear power plant. He feels the Board should not support this resolution. Mr. Bruce opposes the resolution because there is one aspect — the 136 June 11. 1973 level of risk the people are willing to accept. The contact he had with people in his district indicates they are opposed to this. He feels the board should act to reflect the wishes of the people they represent. All through the resolution and other comments there has been indicated a feeling that we can trust the experts despite the fact they themselves are divided on this issue. He doesn't feel the wishes of the people in the community are going to carry much weight in the experts decision. Therefore, he urged the board to oppose it. Mr. Webster said he contacted people in his district and 15 were for; 54 were against and wanted more answers; 4 were of no opinion; 2 wanted not to vote but obtain more answers. Mr. Lee called on Mr. Murphy to present a recalculation of 1973 Town and County Rates, assuming various potential assessments of proposed Bell Station. The schedule is intended only to show the effect of additional assessment on 1973 County, Town, and Lansing School District Rates. It is not to be interpreted as a prediction of any future rate.

It was agreed that Mr. Golder and Mr. Kerr's resolution be combined and Mr. Kerr presented it as follows: RESOLUTION NO. 154 — Endorsement Proceeding with Application for License of the Proposed Bell Station Mr. Kerr offered the following resolution and moved its adoption: WHEREAS, New York State Electric & Gas Corporation has indicated its intention to apply to the proper state and federal agencies for license to construct and operate a nuclear powered electrical generating station in the Town of Lansing, adjacent to their presently operating Milliken Station, and WHEREAS, constitutionally and legally designated state and federal agencies and bodies have been assigned the responsibilities to determine the criteria under which such nuclear powered electrical generating stations are to be licensed for construction and operation, and WHEREAS, both state and federal law provides for public hearing, re- hearings if needed, decisions by these bodies and appeals from such decisions as may be brought about by interested citizens, such appeals being heard and reviewed by our established court system, and WHEREAS, it is the broad duty of this county board to promote and protect the public interest in all its aspects and to provide to all its good citizens both private and corporate equal protection and opportunity under the laws of our land, and WHEREAS, all citizens of the area surrounding the proposed construction site and our great aquatic resource, Cayuga Lake, are vitally interested and rightly concerned with any threats, real or imagined, to the quality of our total environment, and WHEREAS, all citizens of Tompkins and surrounding counties deserve to be publicly heard as to their views relating to the proposed nuclear powered electrical generating facility, and WHEREAS, the needed public hearings and accepted legal procedures will be initiated only upon application for license to construct such a facility, now therefore be it RESOLVED, That the Board of Representatives of Tompkins County having considered the need of present and future generations for additional sources of .electrical energy confident of adherence to maximum safety standards and the operation of a nuclear power plant by the regulatory agencies and the owner and anticipating a design incorporating the environ- mental safeguards that are required by state and federal agencies as will assure minimum thermal pollution of Cayuga Lake, endorse the proposal of New York State Electric and Gas Corporation for the construction of the Bell Nuclear Power Station, and be it RESOLVED, further, That all submitted opinions, petitions, and surveys properly supported by data of the conditions under which they were ad- ministered and by whom they were sponsored, be appended to this resolution, RESOLVED, That all copies of this resolution be forwarded to the New York State Electric and Gas Corporation, the Commissioner of the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation, New York State Depart- ment of Health, New York State Public Service Commission, Atomic Energy Commission, and such other agencies of government which may have respon- sibility for review and approval of such proposal. Mr. Kerr explained that there are several steps in licensing. The first of which is a license for construction. This is not a license to operate, distribute power, etc. All of these things are another step. The commit- ment of construction is not a final commitment to license. In a few years when it may be readyto operate, all these things will be reviewed, June 11. 1973 139 another set of public hearings will be held before any license to operate is granted. He said this is an extremely controversial issue and the reso- lution in no way limits or prohibits the appearance of any individual before agencies who will hold public hearings. Public input of views is needed and he thinks this type of accepted procedure under the laws of our land should be accepted and supported by all and sundry interested in this issue.

Cayuga Lake Basin Board recommended endorsement of the Bell Station project with the proviso that the board will actively participate in close cooperation with the appropriate supervisory agencies of the State and Federal governments to add further guarantees that the public interest in the fullest sense is protected. Tompkins County Planning Board did not feel competent to com- ment on health of the public and environmental concerns. They felt the impact of overall growth, housing, tourism, industrial develop- ment, agricultural viability would be minimal. They feel the overall economy long-range effects would be modest. It was agreed that the overall impact on the tax structure would be significant. The Tompkins County Board of Health recommended New York State Electric & Gas Corporation proceed to apply for necessary con- struction permits for Bell Station with the hope that they will keep the public well informed on all phases of the project. Mr. John McAllister, Mr. Fudger, Mr. George Hughes, and Mrs. Mary Weiner spoke in favor of the construction of Bell Station on Cayuga Lake. Various Committee chairmen reported as follows: Mr. Lee, Budget and Administration Committee, had a request from the Town of Ithaca pertinent to the water and sewer district. A few years ago they ran into tremendous cost problems which rose water and sewer rates on South Hill. There is pending litigation pertinent to some properties. Supervisor Schwan requested the county consider the possibility of paying for the back taxes which have not been col- lected from the Compton property. The committee voted against this because there is a precedent that a number of taxpayers in that district have paid their bills and the Town of Ithaca did pay the tax for the Monkemeyer property. Therefore, the committee is recommending the Town of Ithaca consider this. The Town of Ithaca has consolidated all water and sewer districts since this first tax was levied. They are in June 11. 1973 141 the process of forwarding the revenue sharing letter for signature by the chairman and disbursement to the press. Mr. Bruce, Planning and Public Works Committee, said they had further discussed the disposition of the Boardman House and agreed to make its availability known. They intend to advertise for proposals. He also reported that the Planning Board began serious preliminary discussion of general development patterns for the county. They are looking at alternatives and agreed it needs to be taken to the people for comment. This will be done in late summer and at that time solicit in- puts from citizens' groups, the board itself and others on this important question. Mr. Graves asked about the situation concerning the Cresent Theater. Mr. Kerr said the thought was the county would put up at least $19,000 per year towards the purchase of the proposed building. At the end of payment period, the Historical Society would own it. However, it had been just a proposal. Mr. Leary, Public Safety and Correction Committee, spoke relative to the SPCA contract which has not been signed yet pending clarification. Also, they interviewed applicants for the Sealer of Weights and Measures. He asked to withdraw the resolution of appointment until more input is received. Mrs. Tolles contacted Mr. McCloskey from the State regard- ing the feasibility study and will be contacting the city. Mr. Marcham, Health Committee, noted they had a meeting with the Board of Health to discuss other problems of the lake and sanitary problems in the county. He said an application for funding for emer- gency notification system at the hospital has to be in July 15. Also, the personnel matter that was referred to them is being turned back because it now requires joint action. There is confusion as to representation on an ad hoc committee to propose Tompkins Cunty Office for Aging. There will be a meeting on that today. He said the Health Committee will meet June 14 at 7:30 p.m. He said Extendicare's president may visit here June 18 and make a proposal. He said they continue forward with the re- quest for funds for health planning secretary. They advertised for the last meeting and he wants that ad to continue in force for the next meeting. Mrs. Schickel said general construction of the new Community College building is 55 per cent completed and slightly ahead of the revised schedule. She also referred to a letter from Charles McCord, Supervisor of the Town of Dryden, regarding the hospital program and the Town Board's opinion is that a clear concise statement outlining the total health care needs of the county be articulated. Once this has been drawn up the facility, location and size necessary to meet the health needs for the foreseeable future can be implemented. 142 June 11. 1973 Mr. Dates said lie will be attending a meeting in regard to the Le- high Valley Railroad.

Under privilege of the floor, Supervisor Walter Schwan of the Town of, Ithaca, reported on the meeting in Moravia between Cayuga, Cortland, Tioga and Tompkins County. The purpose was to see if there was any June 18, 1973 149 possibility to do something about the petition of the Lehigh Valley Rail- road to abandon trackings in the system. There will be another meeting June 26 at 6:30 p.m. Various committee chairmen reported as follows: Mr. Lee, Budget and Administration, reported they met with the Board of Trustees of the Community College and Cortland County to get an overview of the state of the college. The committee is interested in what the prognosis looks like pertinent to the budget for the college for the current year and the future. A detailed copy of the budget will be available June 22 and then they will have a joint meeting with Intergovernmental Relations and the college to review that situation. Another item brought up was there will be a considerable amount of square footage that will not be utilized in the new building and they are in the process of drafting a memo to the Planning Committee to make some suggestions and requests for what county activities might be transferred to that facility. They reviewed data processing progress with the Touchette Corporation. They are hoping to hear a proposal with modifications for the committees consideration. The committee agreed to send to the planning board of the county a memo in which they will request them to make an assessment of the human needs in Tompkins County and attempt to outline for that committee to make such evalua- tion or judgment of the potential human needs in the county in the eight categories which were specified by the revenue sharing letter sent to them. The other item connected with this effort is that he, Mr. Bruce, and Mr. Marcham will be meeting with Mr. Shipherd to review some problems in the United Fund. Mr. Golder, Intergovernmental Relations Committee, said their next meeting will be held June 27th at 7:30 p.m. Mr. Bruce, Planning and Public Works, said his committee will meet June 25 at 11:00 a.m. Mrs. Tolles said Mr. McCloskey will be notifying the committee when he will visit regarding the feasibility study on combining police agencies in the county. Mr. Marcham, Health Committee, said they met on the emergency communication system for ambulances but have not yet reached a deci- sion. He said he, Mr. Kerr, and representatives from the hospital visited The New York State Health Department. The department appears willing to extend the Part 2 deadline for hospital construction applica- tion from July 9 to November 15 if Eugene Arnold, Administrator, sends explanation of reasons for delay. An architect will be needed to as- sist in the November 15 deadline work; the committee was advised the 150 June 18, 1973 hospital is to proceed to search for an architect so he can work with Tribrook and managers and be ready for deadline. If the deadline is missed, the county could lose its 250-350 bed allotment for any new hospital. He said the visit also re -affirmed that state law forbids a corporation that does not have its headquarters in New York State from being licensed to operate a hospital in the state. To .get around this, someone like Extendicare would need to a) challenge in court on the basis the law was unconstitutional, which might take 2-3 years; or b) have the law amended, which would take at least a year from now and appears quite unlikely. He said Extendicare hopes to visit Ithaca for a presentation to the board and public soon. The committee agreed to wait until it heard the firm's proposal before deciding when to bring the matter to the floor of the full board for action. He said Mr. Murphy reported on the hospital computer progress and there is progress on all fronts, and the near completion of a study that would determine how long it took the hospital (in five sample days) to prepare a bill, bill, and then get paid by third parties. There was also discussion about the possible state mandated Office of Aging in order for county to get any funds for its senior citizens activities. He men- tioned that it may be cheaper to forego state aid and just pick up the state's share. He said there will be a meeting Thursday evening at 8:00 p.m. for general discussion on forms of organizing a hospital. He noted the Appalachian grant has been made for the primary care unit and people.. are still working on a plan for organizing the unit. He also mentioned that the committee had such complicated budgets that they are asking the departments to have their budgets in by July and August. , Mr. MacNeil, Social Services, said there is a program underway which would be advantageous for the community college to take up — training of Day Care mothers. Also, the department has been studying the pro- posal for space needs and will bereferred to the committee for study. The services function of Social Services is now appointing a caseworker to handle child abuse cases because the cases are increasing. He also said the search for a new Commissioner is looking brighter. Mr. Graves announced there will be no Executive Committee Meeting in July unless someone has something to be discussed. It was moved by Mr. Culligan, seconded by Mr. Leary, That resolu- tions not on the agenda pertaining to Transfer from Hospital Enter- prise Fund; County Home Capital Construction Account, be considered at this meeting.

This would constitute the denominator, the numerator would be the respec- tive amount of total tax per thousand assessed valuation of the respec- tive taxing authority whose share is to be determined. The result is multi- plied by 100 which gives a percentage. The percentage is then multiplied by the payment in lieu of taxes and the result is the share of the respective local taxing authority, and will be disbursed accordingly. Seconded by Mr. Marcham. Mr. Walter Schwan, Supervisor of the Town of Ithaca, explained that this project is a middle income housing authority for elderly people 62 years of age and over with an income level below $6800 per year. He said a study was made and there is a need for this type of project. He said there is a question of whether tax stabilization represents a precedent in the county. It is the feeling of the Ithaca Town Board that the idea of tax stabilization to elderly people was established by the state; basically they established a precedent for this type of thing. They feel they are merely extending privilege one step further from low to middle income. Mr. Lee said the majority (3-2) of committee did not favor the pro- posal. He noted they did not try to evaluate the merits of this proposal as to whether it is needed, advantages, site location, etc.; they tried only 154 June 18, 1973 to focus on the question of should tax stabilization be granted for forty years which is the term of this project. He said they have an overburden- ing obligation to insure stabilization for taxes for all individuals in Tompkins County both in public and private section and mentioned the area apartment vacancy rate was approaching 20 per cent after a long time zero rate. Because of the principle and precedent involved, the majority recommended the tax abatement not be granted. Mr. Bruce feels this project being a profitable venture for the de- veloper is irrelevant, the question is whether or not it is good for the county. He said the investigation done shows there is a need for this type of facility. After further discussion, a roll call vote was taken as follows: Ayes — Kerr, MacNeil, Marcham, Miller, Tolles, Webster, Bruce — 7. Noes — Abbott, Culligan, Dates, Golder, Holden, Leary, Lee and Graves — 8. Absent — 1. Resolution Lost. Mr. Lee was excused from the meeting at this time.

Chairman declared a five-minute recess at 10:10 a.m. at committee request. Various committee chairmen reported as follows: Mr. Lee, Budget and Administration, reported that the Department of Environmental Conservation is working to acquire a parcel of 10 acres owned by Tompkins County in Lot 9, Town of Caroline. He also re- ported that the government has signedthe tax abatement bill for flood damage by Hurricane Agnes. We are now in the process of going back and making a refund to property owners. He asked the news media to get in touch with John Murphy to advertise this fact The Budget and Ad- ministration Committee on EDP is going to ask the Ad Hoc Committee to re -constitute itself to evaluate the progress of our two years in EDP. The re -valuation of property in the county continues with work in Ulysses and working around the. lake. Mr. Golder, Intergovernmental Relations, announced a meeting on July 10 to review the TC3budget for 1973-74. Mr. Kerr, Planning and Public Works, reported the committee had discussed there -opening of the restaurant at the airport which was closed and the equipment sold by the Internal Revenue Service. Concerning the airport fixed -base operator refusing to sell gasoline to the FAA airplane, it was said that the county was late in acting but action was not taken until a formal complaint was received and well documented. This is a 160 July 9, 1973 serious violation of the contract with the county. Such an action puts the county in violation of its contract under which we receive state and federal monies aid for construction and operation of the airport. Notice was therefore given to the fixed -base operator that he must indicate in some way that it was an error or apologize for that type of management. A letter is to come to this board with a copy to the airport manager, the original of course to the FAA office in New York City saying that such a thing will not be repeated. The fixed -base operator was put on notice that the county will not tolerate such a breach of contract and that it must be corrected by the 25th of July. The county has more than a quarter of a million in grants at stake. He also said they had. taken up. the terms for sale or lease of Boardman House and the criteria is in print in the offices of the Clerk, Planning. and Public Works, and have been for six months. It is planned to advertise that the property is avail- able for lease or sale in the local paper and one other of general circula- tion in central New York. About the first of September we expect offers to be in our hands and sometime in September we will have a resolution for disposition. The Environmental Council has developed a plan for the betterment of Tompkins County with an inventory of projects of this sort, hopefully, county parks, forests, recreation and unique areas. In response to Mrs. Tolles question of an equitable value on the Board- man House, Mr. Kerr said it was felt that the county has $70,000 invested in the property. Mrs. Schickel reported that the Tompkins -Cortland Community Col- lege had received accreditation from the Middle States Association of Colleges and Secondary Schools of the Commission on Higher Education. The weather has been favorable and work continues on the construction of the college. In response to Mr. Lee's question on change orders, Mrs. Schickel said the orders go through several reviews and where there were omissions or errors in the planning stages we will probably get some reimbursement. Mr. Dates reported that the Sheriff assumed the duties of security at the airport in early 1973. A letter from the Sheriff has explained the problems in covering all flights. A full-time man is tied up for about 12 hrs. while getting paid for eight hours. Mr. John Miller, Fire and Disaster Coordinator, explained the con- sideration given by the Public Safety and Correction and Health Commit- tees to apply for a grant by Johnson and Johnson Foundation to update our ambulance communications system. It would mean $67,065 to Tompkins County over a two-year period. At the end of the two-year program the county would have to assume the radio maintenance and the retraining of personnel to handle the calls. Mr. Culligan questioned private ambulances raising rates to pay for this service. Mr. Graves declared a recess at 10:55 a.m., business resumed at 11:02 a.m. July 9, 1973 161 Mr. Culligan, Health, reported on a meeting of alternate methods of running the hospital. A person from the Sloan Institute felt the Board of Managers was constituted politically and Mr. Culligan said he felt they had always tried to get people with experience to assist the hospital. He also mentioned that a group had gone to Albany concerning health problems and since Extendicare does not have headquarters in New York State, Extendicare should come to us from Albany. It may take 1-3 years to change the law concerning headquarters. There were no objections to the proposal that Chairman Graves write a letter to Extendicare to encourage them to complete their investigation and make a proposal to Tompkins County. Mr. Lee reported that a meeting was held on June 26 on the Lehigh Valley railroad crisis by the counties of Tioga, Tompkins, Cayuga and Cortland. A committee was formed consisting of a member from each of the four county legislatures. The next meeting will be July 11 at the Sheraton Motor Inn. On July 3 Mr. Dates and Mr. Lee attended a meet- ing of the Chamber of Commerce on this particular problem. One aspect of the problem is that the railroad is nowtransporting approxi- mately 187,000 tons of coal a year to the Milliken Station power plant. Mr. Dates read the following statement concerning Industrial De- velopment: "The Tompkins County Industrial Development Agency has received an application from a local commercial corporation desiring revenue bond financing of approximately $2,500,000. The Tompkins County I.D.A. has determined through legal counsel that it has the legal capacity to act on this application. It has further determined that the project fills a critical local need and in every respect fills the requirement of public purpose. It is the opinion of bond counsel that the project meets the Internal Revenue requirements making the Industrial Bonds tax free and these bonds will be privately placed making the project completely local in nature. We should like to emphasize: 1. The project will be subject to payments in lieu of taxes equal to the taxes that would be levied if the project was financed in the usual manner. 2. Tompkins County has no liability of any kind as a result of the issue of bonds. 3. Employment will be increased if this project becomes a fact. 162 July 9, 1973 4. The project is of vital local concern, and 5. If this application is approved, the Tompkins County I.D.A. will be fulfilling the purpose for which it was created by Special Act of the New York State Legislature and recorded in Chapter 535 of the Laws of 1971. If and when all the contracual details of this project have been settled, there will be a public announcement made jointly by the owner, the financial institutions involved and the Tompkins County I.D.A. Mr. Culligan reported on a meeting he and Mr. Dates attended at Eisenhower College concerning the level of Cayuga Lake. A report will be made to the local bodies at a later date.

They have carried on some work with NCR, Morse Chain pro- viding them services in such things as warehouse management, welding, statistics. They have a federally funded program in governmental man- agement training. They have a Human Services Program in Police Science; 45 people employed by Social Services Department studying at the college; had 62 people complete a real estate course. They are also going to be involved with state funded program for black construc- tion workers which will be taught jointly by unions and Ithaca -Cortland Builders Exchange. They handled for two years a federally funded man- power development training act which trains clerk -typists here in down- town Ithaca and was very successful. They also have a 2 for 1 program where a student takes one year at TC3 and transfers to Morrisville, etc. They cooperate with the American Institute of Banking and provide services with them for college credit and look forward to doing the same thing for Certified Life Underwriters in the future. There has been interest expressed for programs for electronics technology. He mentioned the possible involvement with Tioga County and said a few years ago in the discussion the funding of the college construction program, they originally started out with Phase .I proposal then it became possible to receive federal funds for expanded type programs in order to build Phases I and II together. At that time discussion was entered into to determine if there would be a possibility of filling the larger facility with some type of outside involvement and Tioga County expressed an inter- est and they have further explored this. In the construction area, it is proceeding very well. As of July 1 with 56% of elapsed time, the gen- eral contractor completed 62%, electrical — 49%; plumbing — 81%; heating and ventilating was 64%, so they are ori schedule. They expect the masonry work to be done in September. The site work is progressing rapidly. They have had to have some change orders totalling about $150,000. He said it is not an alarming amount for the size of the facility. This is being scrutinized very cautiously. He said anyone who would like to visit the facility is welcome. Under privilege of the floor, Mrs. Emmy Walrad, read a letter from the 'Tompkins County Welfare Rights Organization. They feel the July 23, 1973 179 Social Services Department is in worse shape now than it was a .year ago and said an administrator is needed there and the board has not ap- pointed one yet. The letter referred to long waits for people to get help from Social Services. It also said space is a problem there which causes a great deal of tension. They feel the Social Services Committee hasn't communicated the problems well to the rest of the board members. The Chairman thanked her for having concern , for the taxpapers of the county. Mr Kerr said relative to the Agricultural District No. 2 — Town of Ulysses, there was discussion of the boundary proposed changes and an opinion has been received from the Department of Environmental Con- servation saying the district in order to continue as originally proposed in the first and second hearing, can be modified only to the extent of taking the state park land out which was inadvertently included. There- fore, according to the resolution the agricultural district is as originally outlined.

He also said they are monitoring very carefully the $600,000 shortfall of the hospital budget.

Mr. Marcham presented Mr. Dean Grout, Vice President, of Extendi- care, Inc. Mr. Grout presented a preliminary report as follows: "Please consider this a preliminary proposal of Extendicare's intent to replace the existing Tompkins County Hospital in Ithaca, New York. A more definitive proposal will be made at such time as the Hospital's consultant has submitted his recommendations and after we have had a chance to review this preliminary proposal with the various parties in- volved in the planning process. Briefly, our proposal is as follows: 1) We are proposing that Tompkins County enter into a development August 13, 1973 187 and management agreement with Extendicare, Inc. to act as their agent to do the following: a) Plan the new hospital and procure all the necessary approvals for licensure. b) Negotiate a contract for construction; let contract; and super- vise the project during construction. c) Fully equip the hospital with Groups I, II, and III. d) Manage the facility utilizing all existing personnel that is needed at the new hospital. The development agreement and management contract will spell out all details of Extendicare's responsibility as well as the respon- sibility of Tompkins County. The fee structure of both the turn- key and management will be covered in these contracts. 2) The hospital will have approximately 156,000 square feet of space and it will be four to five stories in height. There will be a total of 39 private rooms and the remainder will be semi -private. There will be no ward beds, with the exemption of the seven ICU beds and six CCU beds. It will have all services of an acute-care hospital, such as a large emergency service with minor operating rooms, a large surgical suite, inhalation therapy, EKG/EEG, physical therapy and rehabilitation, laboratory, radiology, volunteer service, medical records, central sterile supply, in-service training, and of course, the so called service departments, such as kitchen, maintenance, pharmacy, business administration, etc. The nursing units will be a double corridor plan, which we are building now exclusively. These units are more expensive to construct, but we find are much less expensive to operate from a staffing viewpoint. 3) We are recommending a minimum of 234 acute-care beds broken down as follows: Medical/Surgical 189 Intensive care 7 Coronary care 6 Obstetrics 20 Pediatrics 12 Total 234 You will note we have purposely left out psychiatry and the re- habilitation beds, since it is our recommendation that you con- sider placing those services in the existing hospital building. We understand there is a Community Mental Health Center located 188 August 1.3, 1973 near the hospital and it would seem to us that this facility might also be moved into the existing hospital so that you could handle both outpatients and inpatients in the same general area. As far as rehabilitation is concerned, we have no objection to making those beds part of medical/surgical or general care so long as we can get proper reimbursement from Third Party agencies. Our experience has been that when you try to place an extended care unit within the confines of the general hospital, you have reim- bursement problems. Extendicare would agree, however, to man- age both of these services as part of the total complex. 4) The estimated costs exclusive of land is $12,500,000 to $15,000,000. A more precise figure will be submitted after reviewing our pro- gram with the physicians and the Planning Committee. Our final proposal will have a guaranteed not to exceed price to include all fees, contingencies, and equipment. 5) We propose to finance the new facility by selling industrial revenue bonds under Internal Revenue ruling #6320. The following steps under this program would be taken: a) Extendicare would petition the county or city to create a non-profit corporation under the state incorporation laws. The purpose of the non-profit corporation is to act as the legal entity from which tax free revenue bonds will be issued. b) Subsequently, the county or city would draft the necessary papers to implement this petition, which is usually in the form of a resolution. c) It will be necessary that a feasibility study by a major ac- counting firm, such as Coopers & Lybrand, be submitted as support for the sale of the bonds. d) The non-profit corporation would enter into an inducement contract with an underwriter which would enable the under- writer to sell revenue bonds in the amount sufficient to cover all costs of the project. The non-profit corporation would enter into a management contract with Extendicare to manage the facility after it is completed. e) All the necessary legal papers would be prepared and the bonds sold. f) After the bonds are sold, the proceeds would be turned over to a trustee bank and all monies would be expended as directed by the non-profit corporation. Our attorneys in New York tell us that there is nothing specifically in the New York Law that states this type of financing can be done for hospitals, but they also informed us that a slight change in the law could be made without difficulty to permit this type of financing. August 13, 1973 189 6) The non-profit corporation will enter into a management contract with Extendicare to manage the new facility after it is completed. The management agreement will spell out all aspects of Extendi- care's responsibility and the responsibility of Tompkins County. The term of this contract will be negotiable, but Extendicare would not consider a term of less than five years. The fee will be based either on a percentage of gross billings or a dollar amount per patient day. Extendicare will provide all computer services, all con- sulting services, and perform all management services for the hospital operation. 7) Extendicare will agree to contract with the county or city or other legal entity for the provision of certain services as support for the proposed primary care centers. Extendicare would provide certain administrative services, outpatient services, and rehabilitation pro- grams on a cost plus basis. The details of this would be spelled out in the management agreement. If the Board of Representatives considers this preliminary proposal acceptable, we will need a resolution of intent from the Board of Repre- sentatives authorizing them to begin negotiating with Extendicare on definitive agreements covering both the development as well as the management of the proposed hospital. We will need a steeringcommit- tee to work with during the planning stage. The present Hospital Plan- ning Committee would be acceptable to Extendicare, but we will want direction from the Board of Representatives on this point. Following the signing of these agreements, our planning staff will begin prelim- inary plans for review by the steering committee. After the preliminary plans have been approved, we will prepare final plans which will be done by an outside architectural firm. Our best estimate, following all necessary approvals by the planning agencies, is that it will take approxi- mately six months to finish all the necessary planning, negotiate a con- tract, and begin construction. This, of course, is contingent on there being no unusual delays by the Board of Health and the Planning Com- mittee in reviewing all the plans. I wish to thank you for the opportunity of making this proposal, and I will be looking forward to a response from you in the near future." A question and answer period followed. Mrs. Schickel questioned if there have been any offers for lease or sale of Boardman House. Mr. Kerr said there has not been although there has been one or two inquiries. He said an official notice for lease or sale has appeared in the newspapers. The deadline is August 31. Mrs. Schickel said she received a letter from Mr. Treman, Tompkins County Environmental Management Council, in which he asked groups of peo- 190 August 13, 1973 ple to identify and preserve the unique areas of the county. There are about 5,000 citizens who identified Boardman House as one of these places. Also, the Landmarks Commission, State and National Historic Trust has designated this as an historical, architectural, and educational interest. She asked if everything has been done to make the preservation of Boardman House feasible and practical such as applying for a HUD grant, special financing arrangements, or possibly tax abatement. She recommended the appointment of a small, select committee of the most capable, financial, developmental, legal and historic -preservation persons in this community to find ways to make it feasible and to make a recom- mendation to the board as to what we should do to insure preservation of the Boardman House. Mr. Graves appointed Harris Dates and Frank Liguori as liaison to New York State Electric & Gas Corporation relative to the proposed coal- fired plant on Cayuga Lake. Mr. Dates said he attended a meeting called by NYSE&G Corporation pertinent to the Bell Station Plant and would be attending future meet- ings and report back to the board. Mr. Lee, Budget and Administration, reported they are moving ahead in evaluation of data processing, particularly relating to Social Services. They hope to have a memo out soon outlining the budget schedule and will be presenting guidelines at the Executive Committee meeting on September 4. He also requested a public hearing pertinent to the county administrator changes. He said he hopes the Intergovernmental Rela- tions will have a chance to incorporate other suggested changes also. Mr. Bruce, Planning and Public Works, said in September they hope to bring in specific proposals in respect to Building C and the Old Court House. He said he, Mr. Marcham, Mr. Murphy and others met with representatives of the ad hoc committee of Senior Citizens Council who have been looking into the question of establishing an office of the Aging in Tompkins County. The proposals and alternatives were re- viewed and they were not sympathetic with the idea of establishing an office this year .for purposes of deciding what kinds of programs are needed in that area. They feel there is still more exploration that needs to be done. They will be hearing from them in the future. He said the airport improvements are proceeding on schdule. They are considering Mr. Liguori's request of the possibility of improving the telephone ex- change. Mr. Bruce asked Mrs. Schickel to make her proposal on the Boardman House available to the Planning Department. He said the County has made this building available for lease or sale. They had one outside party that was interested in going in the building but the, con- clusion was that it was not a viable proposition. Mr. Stevenson explained that he has been working with the Telephone August 13, 1973 191 Company for four years to get a Centrix here. He was told by the Public Service Commission that they could not offer any extended services up- state until N.Y.C. was straightened out. Since that time the hospital has it and the telephone company is now working on whether to add on the hospital or do the Court House separately. This has been in the works for six months. Mrs..Tolles said she received a letter from Charles Herndon, Director of the Economic Opportunity Corporation, enclosinga copy of the action taken by the Board of Directors in regard to the EOC, Human Rights working relationship. They moved to accept the Human Rights Com- mission as a delegate agency subject to negotiations of a legal contract acceptable to all parties. Human Rights would have their own board but be financed as a delegate agency under EOC. Mr. Lee asked what progress had been made for future fire precau- tions at the landfill site. Mr. Stevenson said the larger materials are being buried with the landfill on a daily basis. A pond is being built and they have access to a portable pump. Mr. Kerr said he and two other board members attended the County Legislators' school at Cornell University. There were sessions on how to improve county government. This school will be held throughout the state. Mr. Leary, Public Safety and Correction, said he has spoken with the Sealer of Weights and Measures and he is doing a fine job. Also, he said the Sheriff has requested air-conditioning for the new patrol cars. Bids are being prepared. He commended the Sheriff's Department for the solution of the bank robbery in Trumansburg and also the handling of traffic during the rock festival. Mr. Marcham advised the board that Dr. Ralph Low, Medical Exam- iner, has submitted a letter of resignation as he is retiring. The com- mittee is encouraging applications for the position. He said they are moving ahead on the problem of a deficit at the hospital. The deadline for the Phase II application to the state for construction at the hospital has been moved to November 30. The matter of selection of an architect for the hospital and the building recommendation are due within the next month and a half. He reported there was an incident of dispute be- tween a department head who reports to his committee, and the Per- sonnel Department, regarding selection of a candidate for a position. Mr. Murphy is investigating this matter. Mr. Leary has received a request from Dr. deArmis, Jail Physician, that he is unable to. continue. Dr. John Maines will be replacing him with Dr. Kieffer as backup. 192 August 13, 1973 Mr. MacNeil, Social Services. said his committee discussed many items. A resolution for the appointment of Commissioner of Social Services will be presented later in the meeting. He said the conversion of AABD Records has been done and he congratulated Mrs. Porter and her staff for the fine job. Mrs. Schickel reported as of August 1, construction is progressing with 67% general construction completed; electrical — 61%; plumbing — 85%; air-conditioning and ventilating and heating — 65%. She said sheet metal workers have been off the job because of a strike so there has been some delay in that area.

On motion, meeting adjourned at 12:15 p.m. October 1, 1973 217 REGULAR MEETING Monday, October 1, 1973 The Chairman called the meeting to order at 9:30 a.m. Present: Representatives Tolles, Webster, Bruce, Culligan, Dates, Golder, Graves, Holden, Kerr, Leary, Lee, MacNeil, Marcham, Miller, and Schickel — 15. Excused: Representative Abbott (arrived 10:00 a.m.) — 1. Members and guests participated in the Pledge of Allegiance to the Flag. At this time the chairman opened a public hearing regarding a pro- posed local law providing for amendments to the Tompkins County Charter and Code. The Clerk read the notice that was published in the official, newspapers. Marjorie Bird, speaking for the League of Women Voters of Tomp- kins County, said the League is neither pro nor con on this proposal. However, she said this is a major ,change in county government and they ask that each representative make known to the public his/her stand, either pro or con and what they roundly consider all the impli- cations of the proposal and consult with the voters in their district. Mr. Edward Lutz strongly favored the proposal for a County Ad- ministrator. He said it is an unreasonable expectation that board members be asked to do the dozens of everyday chores that go with running the county business. He said they ought to be on the bridge of the ship of county government, not down in the engine room shoveling coal. They should represent the public which has chosen them, on questions and matters of concern to the public. Mr. Alvin Knepper spoke in favor of the change and said the adminis- trator should be as non-political as possible. Beverly Livesay said she felt this proposed change was not publicized enough. Clark Hamlin spoke in favor of the change and feels the position should be appointed. Gary Lee read a letter written to him from Mrs. Ruth DeWire. She stated that some sort of executive officer is needed in Tompkins County to lessen the administrative burden on members of the Board of Repre- 218 October 1, 1973 sentatives; however, she feels the time has come to separate the Finance and Administration functions rather than continue to combine them under one commissioner, even if that ,commissioner were to have an assistant in charge of day-to-day fiscal matters. Donald Culligan said he backs the principle but feels the position should be an elected one instead of appointed. John Marcham said he supports this local law but would like to see some amendments pertaining to separating the Commissioner of Fin- ance from the County Administrator. He also feels there is a need to have a legal counsel available to the administrator. Mr. Dates spoke favoring an elective position rather than the ap- pointive position. Mr. Lee felt three issues brought up in analyzing points and informa- tion has been: Title; whether it should be appointive or elective; and should it be separate from finance. He said a study was made of what is being done in 13 counties and the proposal appears to be in line. He mentioned they are leaving the County Attorney function as is but may need more legal counsel. He said there was debate whether the Clerk of the Board should stay or go to the County Administrator. It was decided to leave it with the Board. He said, it was their conclusion to leave asis the advocating of an independent audit. He also said the question has been posed about the position being too powerful. He said they have tried to incorporate all points and he feels the appointive county administrator system is the safest. He said this is one of the most significant votes this board will make and they have tried to bring it . to the attention of everyone. He said it is his hope that the board will support this proposal. Mrs. Tolles felt it would be unwise to have the position elective. Mr. Leary, Mr. Holden, and Mr. Webster all spoke in favor of the proposal. The Chairman closed the hearing at 10:33 a.m. Mr. Dates said he attended an outstanding convention held here in Tompkins County for airport executives and commended Glenn Turner, Tompkins County Airport Manager, for the excellent job he did as Chairman of this Triple E Convention. Mr. Holden mentioned he has attended a meeting of the NYS De- partment of Environmental Conservation Department — District #3 FPA Board held September 27.

Mr. Golder, Intergovernmental Relations, said if anyone has any other charter changes, to let him know. He . said they are still reviewing budgets. Mr. Bruce, Planning and Public Works, reported the committee met with the architect for the Old Court House. Hesaid they have been working with groups regarding an Office for the Aging. The Senior Citizens seem to be quite satisfied with the way they are operating now. In connection with the proposed marina on Cayuga Lake, he questioned whether the Sheriff's Department could handle the function with their present staff and equipment. Mr. Marcham noted the revised hospital decision schedule was on their desks. The committee is meeting at 1:30 p.m. today to go over budgets. There will be an opportunity for the Health Committee to review the hospital deficit this week. He also said today is the deadline regarding EDP at the hospital business office. He noted the committee will consider the Challenge -ARC proposal today. There is a vacancy on the Mental Health Board due to the resignation of Jane Cullings. They will also hear a proposal on revenue sharing on hospital and primary care units. The revenue sharing proposals are being handled by the Budget and Administration Commissioner. Mr. MacNeil, Social Services, noted his committee has met many times since the new commissioner has started, particularly concerning the budget. They met with the Day Care Council.

It was Moved by Mr. Culligan, seconded by Mr. Dates, That an amendment be made That this Executive Officer would be an elective Office in the County.

Noes — Abbott, Bruce, ' Golder, Holden, Kerr, Leary, Lee, MacNeil (a person to be elected has to spend a considerable amount of time and money to get the job) , Marcham, Miller, Schickel and Graves — 14. Motion Lost. It was Moved by Mr. Marcham, seconded by Mr. Leary, to amend the proposed change to create a Department of Finance separate from the Department of Administration. Discussion followed and Mr. Mar- cham was concerned that the county administrator should not be re- quired to be "an accountant. Mr. Lee said that in the charter change as proposed the county administrator could appoint a Director of Budget. Mr. Bruce opposed that amendment preferring to leave this to subse- quent boards. Mr. Marcham requested his following memo be printed in the record to show in years ahead the "trails we have blazed". MEMORANDUM 1. DO NOT REQUIRE THAT THE COUNTY ADMINISTRATOR BE AN ACCOUNTANT. Because the B&A function has been carried over lock, stock, and quill pen into Local Law No. 5, no profession other than accounting can qualify for the many fiscal duties that are tied to the re -titled position. We may very well want an accountant as chief administra- tor for now and many years to come, but not forever. We may wish to draw, at other times, on administrators who have shown their prowess in planning, or public works, or welfare, or health, or fields we do not now consider major. I would propose (again) that there be separate offices of County Administrator (or commissioner of administration) and of Finance. The administrator could also fill the Finance Commissioner job if we had such a man; otherwise he would appoint (or continue) the in- cumbent person. In any case, the new administrator will have to create a deputy position to carry out this function, just to give him- self enough time to really be an administrator. I detail below how this could be done. 2. USE THE TITLE "COUNTY ADMINISTRATOR" RATHER THAN "COMMISSIONER". This can be accomplished, whether or not the board agrees to the above proposal #1. It makes clear that the person in the job is not just another . department head, slightly more equal than the other commissioners, but the head man. It would also make references to the person throughout the charter crisper, in that some sections refer to the commissioner in charge of a department and his relation- ship to the commissioner of administration. 224 October 1, 1973 3. MAKE THE COUNTY ATTORNEY A STAFF POSITION. As the charter is now worded, and as we practice it, the attorney is now more the Board's attorney than the county's. Yet an administra- tor needs to be clearly able to call upon him for advice and drafting help on all important matters he deals with. I propose the person be appointed by the administrator, subject to Board approval, which would assert the Board's key role in the selection, yet emphasize the service function of the position. 4. SOME WORDING INCONSISTENCIES CROP UP AND WE'LL NEED TO CATCH THEM. These are detailed below: SPECIFIC PROPOSALS 1) Department of Finance — The distinction here is that the ad- ministrator would have the administrative, procurement, budget - recommending, and capital budgeting responsibilities, but leave the accounting, auditing, encumbering, and non -policy fiscal duties in the hands of another department, of Finance. If this idea is accepted by the Board, it may require so major a redrawing of Local Law No. 5 as to send it back to the drafting board. But in essence it can be carried out by removing from Local Law No. 5, Article III, section 3.02 (b) and (d) (fiscal officer and auditing and accounts officer section) , 3.03 .04 (assessment) , .06 (audit of claims) , .07 (bond commissioner) , 4.09 (c) (budget on file) , 4.12 and .13 (keeping track of the budget once passed, en- cumbrance) , 6.03 (certifying payroll) , 16.06 (receiving fees from sheriff) , and 18.05 (fees from county clerk) . These accounting, auditing, fiscal, treasurer duties would be lodged in a Department of Finance, under a Commissioner of Finance, that would be set up under a separate article (call it IIIA for now) , and set up with a section 3A.01 similar to the present 3.01 except for the title and to 3.02 except that it would have the fiscal officer and auditing and accounts portions of proposed 3.02 (b) and (d) . They are found now as 3.02 (a) and (c) in our present charter. The Administrator would appoint this person, so he would be just like a deputy commissioner or administrator for finance. We should also amend proposed Local Law No. 5 with a section 3.10 that would read something like: "The administrator may, at the discretion of the Board of Representatives, also be the head of another department of county government." This would allow what may in fact, be the way we start out under the proposed Local Law No. 5. October 1, 1973 225 2) Title of Budget Administrator—There are many references in the draft of Local Law No. 5 that we have that say "commissioner of administration." I would propose simply that these all read "county administrator." Where he has deputies within his depart- ment, they would be "deputy administrator." If #1 is approved, then there will be some places, in the sections I listed above under #1, where the title "commissioner of finance" would be appropriate, but that would have been covered by the amendment that created a Department of Finance. There are six references to "commissioner of administration" on page 1 of the draft, two on page 2, one on page 3, thirteen on page 4, eighteen on page 5, and seven on page 6. All could be changed with one resolution or amendment by the Board in meet- ing October 1. 3) County Attorney relationship. — The proposal here would be amend the present charters' section 7.01 to read: "... Attorney, who shall be appointed by the County Administrator, subject to approval by the Board of Representatives, ..." 4) Wording inconsistencies a) On page 2, "county administrator" and "administrator" ap- pear (which fits my earlier proposal) , but in the interest of consistency we should use all one wording or all the other (commissioner or administrator) . b) At the bottom of 2 and top of 3, I don't think the sentence, "He shall have the authority to remove all officers and em- ployees in the service of Tompkins County, subject to per- tinent State Law," has any real meaning. It gives a false im- pression. Civil Service law says the person who appoints has the power to remove, and 99 per cent of the employes will be appointed by subordinates to the administrator, or by legally constituted boards (i.e., hospital) or their subordinates. The spirit is great, but I think it's misleading to have such a sentence here, and besides it will make the first such per- son's job that much more resisted. He'll have his ways to get at employes, as it is, with the powers we are giving ihm. c) Similarly, I think his power to "appoint ... heads of all de- partments" will also be found to be so circumvented as to be misleading, but I could be persuaded otherwise. If the board likes this, OK, but I think a more careful drafting would have gone through and specified just which department heads were specifically to be named by administrator, then had a catchall to pick up others that state law, the charter, etc., didn't cover and that we forgot or are created later. 226 October 1, 1973 d) On page 3, 30.2 (a) 6 is, I suppose, a catchall of sorts, but I'd be glad to hear something specific that it might cover. e)' On page 4, 3.02 (e) doesn't make sense. Do we mean: "A deputy commissioner shall . . ."? If so, we should say so. Otherwise we say, "The commissioner . . . as deputy com- missioner of central services for the county, he shall . .." f) While we're changing titles, we should do the same in 4.04, which was omitted. And I think it should be under the ad- ministrator, rather than the Department of Finance. The sub- ject of 4.04 is capital budgeting. If the Board agrees to a separate Department of Finance, then 4.12 (as well as .11 and .13) should be looked at more care- fully. Clearly the administrator should have this power. He may wish to share it fairly specifically with a commissioner of finance. This has to do with budget over -runs and transfers. h) While going through the present charter to create all the above chaos, I was struck by p. 15, 3.02 (a) (6) and (7) and wonder if I have missed the promised "complete statements of county finances" and "statement of financial condition of the county" that's required in these. We have been pretty picky with some of our subordinate departments about doing their jobs lately, and maybe we should abide by this, as well. i) On the same note, page 24, first part of 4.06 (a) , seems to give the job of preparing and submitting a budget to the Com- missioner of Budget and Administration, rather than the Budget and Administration Committee. Do we intend to move in this direction in the future? Have we consciously not fol- lowed this section of the charter, which was put in there originally to endow the commissioner with some of the very powers our proposed Local Law No. 5 encompasses. I will be prepared to make motions during the formal board meeting to accomplish the various changes, and test how the board as a whole feels about each. g) John Marcham A roll call on the Motion resulted as follows: Ayes — Representatives Marcham and Webster — 2..

Human Rights Commission which she feels treated her unjustly. Under privilege of the floor, Mary Ford, speaking for the Tompkins County Comprehensive Health Planning Council, said the Council recommends that no further consideration be given to the Extendicare, Inc. proposal for the development of a new hospital in Tompkins Coun- ty because they feel Extendicare has not provided the basic material and documentation required to make a decision. The Council urged the board to proceed with a decision on hospital construction using the existing material with appropriate clarification. Marjorie Bird, representing the League of Women Voters, spoke about the ten amendments to the N.Y.S. Constitution and one proposition which will be included on the November 1973 ballot and urged everyone to read the "Facts for Voters — 1973". John Bowman, President of the Musicians' Union, spoke requesting a grant of $1,000 to help them continue their service of performing for October 15, 1973 237 the Tompkins County Home, Senior Citizens, hospital, etc. His request was referred to the Budget and Administration Committee.

Letter from Howard W. Robison, Congressman, regarding the Nutri- tion Program for the elderly enclosing federal regulations for the promul- gation of the program. County allocations are based on the number of residents 60 and older and the number of people below poverty income levels. On the basis of distribution formula, Tompkins County will re- ceive $35,000. Various committee chairmen reported as follows: Mr. Lee, Budget and Administration, said they continue to review bud- gets. There will be a joint meeting tomorrow with the Public Safety Com- mittee to consider one particular budget. October 30 they will be meeting with department heads and chairmen of committees, if necessary. The Informational public meeting will be held November 8 at 7:30 p.m. and 238 October 15, 1973 the official public hearing will be held November 19 at 7:30 p.m. One other important item was the Health Committee asked B&A to review the hospital budget in the following light: The hospital budget for 1974 currently on their desks is a balanced budget. Balanced only if the price exception is granted by the Cost of Living Council. If it is not granted, the hospital budget will have to pay $270,000 deficit. The Health Com- mittee and Budget and Administration Committee are on record that if the Cost of Living Council does not grant this there will have to be a cut in the hospital budget correspondingly. They are not going to sup- port a deficit budget for 1974 at the hospital. Mr. Culligan said this problem of deficit is nationwide. Because of economy of the times people are not going to the hospital unless it is a dire emergency. He mentioned the hospital has made close to two million dollars over the last eight to nine years and has been in the Enterprise Fund. Over one million dollars was taken out of that fund from profits from the hospital that taxpayers didn't have to utilize when the Inten- sive Care Unit was built and when H -Building was redone for the Health and Mental Health Departments and the C -Wing was made into a new facility. Mr. Graves also pointed out that the hospital lost over one million dollars prior to eight or nine years ago. Mr. Marcham spoke about the Proposition One regarding the Trans- portation Bond Issue in relation to Route 96 and asked if anyone else had more information on it so they would know the implications of a yes or no vote. Mr. Golder said the Intergovernmental Relations Committee met on the 5th to discuss budgetary items and there will be a resolution later in the meeting. Mr. Bruce, Planning and Public Works, discussed items covered in resolution with respect to bid openings for the Instrument Landing System at the airport. The Planning Department has worked out the scheduling for changes with respect to the Old Court House. It is avail- able for inspection in the Planning Department. They are progressing in the direction of getting preliminary plans and estimates for the Old Court House renovations which will be brought to the Board before they give the architects the go-ahead. The Committee was unhappy with the original estimates for a 20 -year renovation of Building C which was just under 1/4 of a million dollars. The Board has received a memo from Richard Metzgar and they have come up with a reduced cost plan and some things were eliminated. There is no longer a 20 -year life but the immediate needs are taken care of. The Committee intends to make a recommendation at the next meeting. Mr. MacNeil, Social Services, said their budget is in. They will meet with the Extension Services tomorrow. October 15, 1973 239 Mr. Marcham, Health, said they have not received a budget request from the Senior Citizens' Council yet. They are continuing the study of the business office at the hospital and it is at staff level now with Eugene Arnold and John Murphy working on it. They found funds needed to carry this on in the hospital budget and are looking for a report in December. He said the public meetings on the hospital ques- tion are continuing. He also said the Health Planning Council is due to make a recommendation on the hospital by next Tuesday's Health Committee meeting and the committee will then make a recommendation to the board. Mr. Dates reported that he attended the NYSE&G Corporation in- formational meeting and the power station will be known as Cayuga Station instead of Bell Station. Mrs. Schickel reported that construction is progressing at the Tomp- kins -Cortland Community College. RESOLUTION NO. 252 — Extendicare, Inc. Mr. Abbott offered the following resolution and moved its adoption: WHEREAS, it is hereby determined and declared that for the benefit of the people of Tompkins County, New York (the "County") it is essential that the people of the County and the surrounding area have access to ade- quate medical care and hospital facilities, and WHEREAS, the present hospital facilities in the County are inadequate for the increased health care needs and hospital requirements of the County and the surrounding area, and WHEREAS, it is hereby determined that the location of a new general hospital and ancillary health care facilities in such County is essential to the residents of the County and the surrounding area, and WHEREAS, some interested citizens of the County propose to organize a not-for-profit charitable hospital corporation to be known as the "Tompkins County Hospital Corporation" ("Corporation") under the laws of the State of New York for the purposes of constructing and equipping a general hospital and related health care facilities, and operating and maintaining the general hospital and related health care facilities ("Hospital Facility") on a not-for- profit basis for the purpose of providing adequate medical care and hospital facilities to the County and the surrounding area, and WHEREAS, the certificate of incorporation of the Corporation will pro- vide that upon retirement of the indebtedness of the Corporation the Corpora- tion will tender all right, title and interest of the Corporation in the Hospital Facility to the County without consideration, and will further provide the County with an option to purchase the Hospital Facility at any time for an amount sufficient to retire all indebtedness of the Corporation, now therefore be it RESOLVED, by the Board of Representatives of the County, as follows: Section 1. That the incorporation of the Tompkins County Hospital Corporation and the construction of the Hospital Facility are hereby deter- mined and declared to be for the benefit of the people of the County and the surrounding area; that the form of the First, Mortgage Hospital Revenue Bonds to be issued by the Corporation contain nothing objectionable to the County or nothing which would impose any kind of obligation upon the County (it being understood, however, that the foregoing is not intended to include the Indenture of Mortgage and Deed of Trust to which reference will be 240 October 15, 1973 made in said form of First Mortgage Hospital Revenue Bonds) and the County presently agrees to accept a gift of the Hospital Facility, free of any liens or claims of any kind or nature whatsoever, at the time the Corporation tenders it to the County, Section 2. That the County enter into an agreement with the Tompkins County Hospital Corporation whereby the Tompkins County Hospital Corporation will agree, if the County so requires, to operate the Hospital Facility on behalf of the County from and after the time the County accepts a gift of the Hospital Facility. Seconded by Mr. Miller. Mr. Marcham explained that no one on his committee was prepared to support further advancement of the Extendi- care proposal at this time based on the lack of information. Mr. Dean Grout was told by his company that Extendicare is not prepared for an investment of $70,000 required to answer all the questions and provide all the information Tompkins County needs to make a decision without having a clear indication of the county's intention. Mr. Miller withdrew his second. Mr. Leary then seconded the resolu- tion. A lengthy discussion took place. It Was Moved by Mr. Holden, seconded by Mr. Dates that this resolu- tion be tabled. Ayes — Representatives Abbott, Dates, Holden, Leary, Lee, MacNeil, Miller, and Graves — 8. Noes — Bruce, Culligan, Golder, Kerr, Marcham, Schickel, Tolles and Webster — 8. Motion to Table Lost. Further discussion followed and Mr. Abbott withdrew the resolution and Mr. Leary withdrew his second.

Seconded by Mr. Kerr. It was Moved by Mr. Holden, seconded by Mr. Abbott, That this resolution be Tabled. Ayes — Representatives Ab- bott, Holden, Leary and Graves — 4. Noes — Bruce, Culligan, Dates, Golder, Kerr, Lee, MacNeil, Marcham, Miller, Schickel, Tolles, Webster — 12. Motion to Table Lost. A roll call vote on the resolution resulted: Ayes — Representatives Webster, Bruce, Culligan, Dates, Golder, Kerr, Lee, Marcham, Miller, Schickel, Tolles, and Graves — 12. Noes — Abbott, Holden, Leary, MacNeil — 4. Resolution Carried. October 15, 1973 241 RESOLUTION NO. 254 = Site Recommendation — Hospital Mr. Marcham offered the following resolution and moved its adoption: WHEREAS, the Planning and Public Works Committee has discussed the site location of any new hospital facility to be built in Tompkins County, and WHEREAS, the Planning Board and Planning Department of Tompkins County have recommended that the proposed site for any new hospital be lands presently occupied by the Tompkins County Hospital, now therefore be it RESOLVED, on recommendation of a majority of the Planning and Public Works and Health Committees, That this Board follow the recommendation of the County Planning Board and Planning Department and approve as a deferred site for any new hospital the lands presently owned and occupied by said Tompkins County Hospital, RESOLVED, further, That said recommendation is not to be construed that the Planning and Public Works and Health Committees, the Planning Depart- ment and Planning Board recommend a new hospital at this time, RESOLVED, further, That the Clerk of the Board forward certified copies of this resolution to the Administrator and Board of Managers of the Tomp- kins County Hospital and to the Commissioner of Planning. Seconded by Mr. Culligan. Mr. Charles Howell, Supervisor of the Town of Lansing, spoke supporting a site in the center of the county. Mr. Bruce spoke in favor of keeping the present site. It was Moved by Mr. Lee, seconded by Mr. Dates, That this resolution be Tabled until recommendation from the Health Committee is received. Ayes — Repre- sentatives Abbott, Culligan, Dates, Holden, Lee, Miller, and Schickel — 7. Noes — Webster, Bruce, Golder, Kerr, Leary, MacNeil, Marcham, Tolles and Graves — 9. Motion to Table Lost. Mr. Marcham said he would. have liked to see an eastside site because it would make sense to have it in an area where you could add to existing population center which would make a transportation system more viable, but he now feels because of the amount invested in the buildings in the health area, it makes more sense to locate at the present site. Mrs. Schickel said if there were a new hospital it could be on the east side or west side if there were an access route. Mr. Dates said he does not support this resolution. He said even if the representatives approved a new hospital they might vote against it be- cause they might feel it would be located in the wrong place. Mr. Holden said he feels the growth in the next 25 years is going to be in the Lansing and Dryden areas. He feels more study should be done. Mrs. Dewire said the County Planning Coalition had a statement which said if Route 96 were to be constructed they would favor the present site. If it were not, they would favor an eastern site. Mr. Culligan withdrew his second to the resolution. Mr. Kerr then seconded the resolution. 242 October 15, 1973 Frank Liguori, Planning Commissioner, said the Planning Board and the Planning Department selected the criteria that seemed to be most ap- propriate, including land use and environment, the accessibility of a site over a road, availability of land, centrality and proximity to related health facilities and the cost factor. Each criteria were weighed de- pending on how important the Planning Board felt each item was. Each of the four sites were investigated — 1) existing hospital, 2) one some- where in the vicinity of Stewart Park representing the true center of population and geographic area and 3) one, in vicinity of Cayuga Heights Road and Route 13, 4) one at intersection of Route 13 and 366. The re- sults showed a slight edge of the site at Cayuga Heights Road and Route 13 with existing access to the present hospital site. If Route 96 were to be improved, the evaluation indicated strongly in favor of that site. Mr. Kerr feels the hospital is in the right place. The County owns land and they will use the area for health and related facilities according to the agreement with the State of Nw York. He said he polled the opinion of persons in various parts of the county and most people for reasons of economy and for reasons of spending a dollar in the right place, felt the present location should be considered very carefully before they say it should be somewhere else. He supports this resolution. A roll call resulted as follows: Ayes — Representatives Webster, Bruce, Culligan, Golder, Kerr, Leary, MacNeil, Marcham, Miller, Tolles, Graves — 11. Noes — Abbott, Dates, Holden, Lee and Schickel — 5. Resolution Carried. RESOLUTION NO. 255—Adoption of Local Law No. 4 — 1973 Mr. Lee offered the following resolution and moved its adoption: WHEREAS, a public hearing has been held after notice required by law on Local Law No. 4 — 1973 relating to sale of excess land no longer needed for public use by Tompkins County to Tompkins County Industrial Development Agency for use as part of an Industrial Park, and WHEREAS, at said public hearing held on the 15th day of October, 1973, at 9:30 o'clock in the morning thereof, discussion was had on said sale of land, now therefore be it RESOLVED, on recommendation of the Budget and Administration Com- mittee, That said Local Law No. 4 — 1973 be and the same hereby is adopted, RESOLVED, further, That the Clerk of the Board publish a true copy of said local law in the official newspapers of the County, for two successive weeks, within ten days after this local law is adopted, and after said local law shall have been finally adopted, the Clerk shall file within five days one certified copy in the office of the County Clerk, one certified copy with the State Comptroller and three certified copies with the Secretary of State.

Under privilege of the floor, Mr. Marcham brought the board up-to- date on the status of the hospital question. His Health Committee met and they feel there isn't enough information available to make a decision today. He suggested having the meeting adjourned to November 7 at 7:30 p.m. He will present a resolution later in the meeting to assign the Commissioner of Budget and Administration the responsibility for preparing information for determining the impact on hospital charges of a complete replacement of the present hospital and have it available for the adjourned meeting. Mr. Bruce said he would vote against anything until they have some concrete evidence that the hospital Board of Managers has seriously con- sidered any alternatives to complete replacement. He also questioned the competency of the arrangment for governing the hospital. Mr. Culligan mentioned that Cornell University and Ithaca College were part of a new health center plan and it was thought maybe a October 29, 1973 257 medical school annex from New York City would be brought here. They went to Albany to seek financial aid and it turned out it was not what was really wanted. He said in the last few years the Board of Managers, Health Committee and this Board has studied every aspect of the hospital situation. Mrs. Tolles spoke about partial replacement and usage and feels there is not sufficient information. Mr. Kerr complimented the Board of Managers on their work. He said there is not enough information to know if we need complete re- placement. He said complete replacement for the most part can be financed through user charges. He said indications are that it can be done. He feels the committee's resolution this morning would get the necessary information in a short time so a final decision can be made. Mrs. Schickel asked about the possibility of changing ownership and perhaps going to a private hospital. She didn't think they should have to go out of the state to get hospital management. Mr. Golder said he would support the committees resolution. Various committee chairmen reported as follows: Mr. Lee, Budget 8c Administration, said Phase I of the budget review has been completed and if departments want their budgets reviewed again, they can meet tomorrow evening at 7:30 p.m. The public informa- tional meeting will be held November 8 at 7:30 p.m. and the official public hearing on the budget will be held November 19 at 7:30 p.m. Regarding revenue sharing, he said monies will first be assigned to projects with existing programs and then would look at any outside agencies the county contracts with and then any new requests outside existing programs. Mrs. Schickel said she attended a construction committee meeting at the Tompkins -Cortland Community College with the Dormitory Au- thority. She also said furnishings for the college were going to be bid.

Mr. Dates, Chairman of the Tompkins County Industrial Develop- ment Agency, gave the following report: The Morse Chain Division of Borg-Warner Corporation submitted an application for revenue bond financing to the Tompkins County In- dustrial Development Agency on March 14, 1973. The revenue bond financing was intended to provide for land purchase, plant construc- tion, machinery and pollution control both at the Warren Road site and at the Ithaca plant. At this time all the legal work has been done to permit the issue of one million dollars of bonds for the Warren Road Project and one million dollars of bonds for the Ithaca Project. In both instances the proceeds of the bonds will be used to purchase productive equipment. At a later date separate issues of bonds totaling four and one-half mil- lion dollars will be used to purchase pollution control equipment to be used at the Lansing Project and the Ithaca Project. The Warren Road Project is progressing toward the start of building. The site has been drained, cleared and the preliminary site work is about finished. Only those trees on the plant site and the parking area have been removed. The finished plant will serve to broaden the tax base as well as furnish additional employment for our area. November 12, 1973 267 On June 18, 1973 the Agency received an application for revenue bond financing from Rothschild Brothers, Inc. The purpose of the two and one-half million dollar bond issue is to provide for the permanent financing of the new Rothschild Store to be located in the Urban Re- newal area known as the "Hotel Block". The bonds and mortgage when issued will be purchased by six participating banks: The Savings Bank of Tompkins County which arranged the participa- tion. First City National Bank of Binghamton, New York First National Bank and Trust Company of Ithaca Ithaca Savings and Loan Association Marine Midland Bank — Southern, Ithaca, New York Tompkins County Trust Company Rothschild Brothers, Inc. has arranged interim financing during the period of construction and will, use the bond issue for permanent financing sometime late in 1974. The Tompkins County Industrial Development Agency has deter- mined through legal counsel, as it had done previously with the Morse Chain Projects, that it has the legal capacity to act on this application. It has further determined that the project fills a critical local need and in every respect fills the requirement of public purpose. The project will be subject to real estate taxes and any other taxes now or hereafter authorized by the taxing authorities and also all special benefit assess- ment charges (sewer, water, etc.) . It has been determined that employ- ment will be increased when the project has been completed and in operation. In accepting applications from Morse Chain and Rothschild Brothers, the Tompkins County Industrial Development Agency is fulfilling the purpose for which it was created by Special Act of the New York State Legislature and recorded in Chapter 535 of the Laws of 1971. It was Moved by Mr. Kerr, seconded by Mr. Miller, That resolutions pertaining to Audit of Capital Construction Account-TC3, Transfer of Funds — various accounts, Creation of Position — County Court, reclassi- fication Typist — Fire and Disaster Coordinator's Office, Amendment Challenge Industries Budget, Hospital Construction — replacement, Hospital Construction — Renovation and addition, Transfer of Funds for further study of hospital financing and Application for State Ap- provals, Award of Bid — County Home, be withdrawn from this agenda.

Seconded by Mr. Golder. Ayes — Representatives Bruce, Dates, Golder, Holden, Kerr, Leary, Lee, MacNeil, Marcham, Miller, Schickel, Webster, Abbott, Graves — 14. Noes — 0. Absent — 2. Resolution Carried. On motion, meeting adjourned at 9:21 p.m. 330 November 26, 1973 REGULAR MEETING November 26, 1973 The Chairman called the meeting to order at 10:00 a.m. Present: Dates, Golder, Graves, Holden, Kerr, Leary, Lee, Marcham, Miller, Schickel, Webster, Bruce — 12. Excused: Culligan, MacNeil, Tolles — 3. Absent — Abbott (Arrived) — 1. Members and guests participated in the Pledge of Allegiance to the Flag. The Clerk noted the following correspondence had been received for filing and/or referred to the proper committee for action: Mailgram from Governor Rockefeller ordering the immediate reduc- tion of legal speed limits on all state highways and parkways to 50 miles per hour for all types of vehicles; guidelines received from Commissioner of Health Dr. Gaffney to conserve automobile fuel; notice of appoint- ment of Town Clerks of Groton, Dryden, Newfield, and Trumansburg as subregistrars of Vital Statistics; executed copy of Cooperative Exten- tion 1974 program contract; minutes of Tompkins County Comprehen- sive Health Planning Council for October 23 and November 20, state- ment of Council on hospital decision; notice of labor law inspection findings at TC3 construction site; minutes of TC3 Board of Trustees for October 15 and resolution concerning Master Charge proposal, report of the committee to determine future use of Groton campus, and weekly construction report; resolution from Cortland County re audit of TC3 capital expenditures; minutes of Planning and Public Works committee meeting of November 6; minutes of Southern Tier East Regional Plan- ning and Development Board meeting of October 18; minutes of execu- tive board of South Central New York Resource Conservation and De- velopment Board; 1973 Financial report of the Board of Elections and the 1973 statement of the Board of County Canvassers of Tompkins County. Under privilege of the floor, Mrs. Frances Ellett, Senior Social Welfare Worker in charge of Medicaid, spoke on salary reevaluation of positions conducted by the American Association of Industrial Management. She said the turnover rate in the examiner series hovers close to 90 per cent for the years 1972-1974. This high rate is due for the most part to the low salary. They asked for increases for Social Welfare Examiner, Senior Social Welfare Examiner, Principle Social Welfare Examiner. They feel the requests are reasonable and find the AAIM proposals to be fully in- adequate. November 26, 1973 331 Mr. Ernest F. Roberts spoke regarding Boardman House. He feels the Ithaca Landmarks Preservation Commission should only grant demoli- tion permit if every possible alternative to demolition has been ex- hausted. Pauline Darret again spoke to the board regarding the New York State Division of Human Rights. David Smith spoke on the hospital issue and voter preference survey sponsored by the Ithaca Journal. He feels it indicates the resolution adopted is an acceptableone to the Tompkins County voters whereas the 15.2 million dollar proposal is not. Mr. Donald O'Connor repre- senting the Machinists Union, feels the taxpayers cannot afford a 15.2 million dollar proposal. It is his opinion there is some middle ground -- start start a core operation. They feel 7 or 8 million dollars can bring the hospital back to a facility of which the people in Tompkins County can be proud. Mr. Place from Groton spoke about the Day Care Program in Groton. He asked the board to consider a request to enable them to serve the needs of the children seeking day care for the kind of preschool educa- tion to allow them to be better citizens for the future. Various committee chairmen reported as follows: Mr. Lee, Budget and Administration, in response to Rev. Place, said he talked with Barbara Clark and a request. was made to Audit and Con- trol Department to find out whether it is a project that revenue sharing monies can be invested in. Also, Senator Smith and Congressman Robi- son are interested in helping and it is hopeful the center will get their supplemental grant. He also reported regarding Mr. Culligan's inquiry pertinent to Mobile Home Assessment procedures. He has received a re- port from Thomas Payne and it is available for anyone interested. Mr. Marcham reported the committee met and they will have a resolu- tion • later in the meeting on the Nutrition Program for the Aged. He commended Harry Kerr and Arthur Golder for all the hours devoted to the hospital issue. At this time Chairman Graves made the following statement: As an aftermath of last Monday's vote on the hospital, I was very much disturbed by the reaction of a few who should know better. There- fore, I have a few remarks I would like to address to the disgruntled 'members of the Board of Managers, the hospital administration, the Health Planning Council and the doctors. . • Thank you very much for the unnecessary venom you have spouted for the past week, in my book' if you were one half as dedicated to the 332 November 26, 1973 health of the community as your predecessors were instead of the al- mighty dollar you accuse this board of worshiping, there would be no problem. You have been given your way for the past 20 years, nothing has been denied you, the so-called medical profession. The result is that now you act like "Prima Donnas." It is a known fact if any man is not satisfied with where he lives or earns his living, he is free to pack up and leave. Your profession is no different, if you can't make the buck here you will move on. I have yet to talk to one wage earner (no one with a $25,000 year income) outside the medical profession who favors replacing our hospi- tal. I have polled hundreds of people, even gone so far as to stand out- side the hospital entrance in search of the answer. As for the Board of Managers and the administrator, you lost your right to criticize anyone with your track record of operating the hospital in 1973. (Complete mess) To the Health Planning Council, your contribution to the county should be to disband, all you have done is to create confusion with your dreams. Your threats and attempted strong-arm methods used on members of this board and other members of the medical profession make me want to vomit. There is an old chestnut that goes, "put your money where your mouth is." This is the solution to your Utopia. The 45 who are demanding a new hospital must all be in the $100,000 dollar -a -year bracket. Let thein underwrite the 15 million dollars. With that kind of income any bank would grab the deal. This would really back up your concern for the people's health. Nine years ago four members of this board showed you experts how to operate a hospital, today I wish we had the time and ambition to shove it into you again, then we took the same type of abuse from the same self-centered people. To me you so-called saviors of mankind are nothing but a joke. Chairman Graves read 'a statement regarding Resolution No. 303 adopted November 19, 1973 — procedure of implementation: 1. Appointments will be made to the Hospital Construction Commit- tee created by previous resolution of this Board. The first duty of that November 26, 1973 333 committee will be to make recommendations to this Board for the selec- tion of an architect or architects. The committee will thereafter work with the hospital medical staff, employees and administration in assisting the architect in the first phase of this work. 2. An architect or architects will be employed by the county to prepare preliminary schematic drawings and detailed cost estimates for a pro- gram of modernization which will: a. Provide for the construction of a new "core", containing operating rooms, acute care facilities, laboratory and radiology departments, and b. Make maximum responsible use of the existing hospital building for patient care, administrative and service functions. 3. The guideline of three million dollars set forth in the November 19 resolution applied only to the new structure to be designed, not to the cost of modernization of the existing facility. That figure was specified as "construction cost" only and does not include professional fees, ad- ministrative costs and such new equipment as may be required for that "core". 4. It is intended that the program of modernization to be undertaken will bring the core facilities and patient areas of the hospital in line with current acceptable medical and nursing requirements and that such construction and re -construction be designed with a flexibility permitting both future expansion and alterations which may be necessitated by changes in medical technology. It is also intended that the construction committee and the architect or architects selected develop their recommendations and plans as ex- peditiously as possible in order that this project may move ahead. It was Moved by Mr. Lee, seconded by Mr. Holden, That the Equaliza- tion Rates and Regular and Supplemental Reports of Footings of As- sessment Rolls, be lifted from the Table. Carried. Mr. Bruce, Planning and Public Works Committee, reported regarding the Boardman House. He said time has been extended several times to allow interested parties to make any proposals for lease or sale of the building. During that time they have considered a number of proposals. However, the committee regretfully rejects all the proposals because no offer has been developed even approaching the criteria accepted by the Board and the committee recommends that the building be demolished. Mrs. Schickel will be presenting a resolution later which the committee does not recommend: The committee will be presenting their resolution later. 334 November 26, 1973 RESOLUTION NO. 308 — Boardman House Mrs. Schickel offered the following resolution and moved its adoption: WHEREAS, the Boardman House is badly in need of repair and de- teriorating because of lack of maintenance which is needed and which would be costly to do, and WHEREAS, the County has apparently no useful purpose to put it to, and WHEREAS, it would cost taxpayers' money to tear it down, and WHEREAS, its historic worth is widely recognized, and WHEREAS, it is visually important to the quality of the park and historic area, and WHEREAS, the committee is on record as desiring to do all it can to save this historical building, now therefore be it RESOLVED, That the people of Tompkins County have everything to gain and nothing to lose by selling the building to the McHugh -Flight group for $1.00 and a 10 per cent share of the gross rents for the life of the building, not to exceed $2400 per year on the condition the group put this building into good condition within a reasonable period of time and use it for the purposes stated in their proposal, with the stipulation that the building and improve- ment will revert to the county in the event of failure to carry out the terms of the agreement and that the land will revert to the County if the building is ever torn down and authorize the Chairman of the Board to negotiate an agreement on behalf of the board in this resolution. Seconded by Mr. Bruce. Matthew McHugh spoke to the board. He has been working with the citizens in order to come up with a meaningful proposal to save the building. He explained the proposal. It was Moved by Mr. Webster, seconded by Mrs. Tolles, That both the resolutions on Boardman House be tabled. Ayes — Representatives Dates, Golder, Schickel, Tolles, Webster — 5.

Noes — Abbott, Bruce, Golder, Holden, Kerr, Leary, Lee and Graves — 8. Absent — 2. Resolution Lost. RESOLUTION NO. 309 — Boardman House Mr. Bruce offered the following resolution and moved its adoption: WHEREAS, the Board of Representatives in Resolution No. 242 of 1972 declared the former Ithaca College property, known as Boardman House, surplus to County needs and offered said building for sale or lease, and WHEREAS, the Board of Representatives has approved criteria for such sale or lease, advertised same, and worked actively with all interested parties, and WHEREAS, despite the serious and sustained efforts of interested and concerned groups and individual citizens, no offer has been developed even approaching the criteria accepted by the Board of Representatives, now there- fore be it November 26, 1973 335 RESOLVED, upon motion of the. Planning and Public Works Committee, That said building be demolished, RESOLVED, further, That architects for Building C be directed to take such demolition into account in their plans for renovation to insure that an attractive facade will be presented to DeWitt Park, RESOLVED, further, That the Clerk of the Board forward certified copies of this resolution to the Commissioners of Budget and Administration, Plan- ning, Public Works, and Richard E. Metzger, Architect. Seconded by Mr. Holden. Ayes — Representatives Abbott, Bruce, Dates, Golder, Holden, Kerr, Leary, Lee, Graves — 9. Noes — Marcham, Miller, Schickel, Tolles, Webster — 5. Resolution Carried. RESOLUTION NO. 289 — ESTABLISHING COUNTY EQUALIZA- TION RATES was lifted from the Table. A voice vote was taken and the resolution Carried. RESOLUTION NO. 310 — Adoption of Regular and Supplemental Reports on Footings of Assessment Rolls Mr. Lee offered the folowing resoution and moved its adoption: RESOLVED, That the regular and supplemental reports of the Budget and Administration Committee on the footing of the assessment rolls be accepted and adopted and that the figures therein be used as a basis for the taxation in the several tax districts of the county for the year 1974.

The Clerk noted the following correspondence had been received for filing and/or referred to the proper committee for action: City of Ithaca vs. County of Tompkins order to show cause on the 13th day of December on why an order should not be made restraining and enjoining the County from demolishing the Boardman House; third quarter 1973 report from the Commissioner of Budget and Administra- tion showing appropriations, expenditures and balances of the various accounts; agreement between Tompkins County and the Department of Environmental Conservation for the purchase of landfill equipment; agreement between Tompkins County and the Department of Transpor- tation for snow and ice control; weekly construction reports from TC3 for November 15-20; pistol permits for the month of November totalled $102.00; letter from Virginia Stephen in favor of the county building a new hospital; resignation of Arthur N. Cleaveland from the Hospital Board of Managers; notice that the New York State Office for the Aging has- been designated as the administrative agency responsible for imple- mentation of the National Nutrition Program for the Elderly; minutes of Library Board of Trustees meeting of October 30; minutes of Southern Tier East Regional Planning and Development Board meeting and re- view of November 15; minutes of TC3 Board of Trustees for November 8; minutes of County Sewer Agency meeting of November 14; minutes of County Planning Board meeting of November 7. The minutes of November 12 and November 19 a.m., were approved. Mr. Marcham objected to the method in which the official newspapers of the county are chosen. Mr. Williamson, County Attorney, said the members of the County Legislature, representing each of the two prin- cipal political parties, designate the newspapers. The Clerk was instructed to notify the newspapers requesting them to make a representation to the board. December 10, 1973 363 The Chairman appointed John Miller as the Local Energy Informa- tion Coordinator, with Clair Updike. Under privilege of the floor, Douglas Brown spoke to the board. He requested a committee be established to look into the question of hospital governance. He hopes it could be done through a parallel study and not confuse the question of the building program. Beverly Livesay, Representative Elect, questioned that since the Coun- ty Administrator is to serve at the pleasure and carry out board policy, should this board appoint an administrator. Mr. Marcham said he has received at least one letter from a citizen indicating the board should have reacted to James Graves' remarks con- cerning the hospital issue. He said there is a time when certain questions are discussed and a time when it doesn't seem wise to speak out and his failure to speak in no way represents either endorsement or disagreement. He also said he has received letters re the hospital, is acknowledging them and will turn them over to the new committee. Various committee chairmen reported as follows: Mr. Abbott, Personnel, said the two resolutions that are on the table will not be presented today. There is another committee meeting sched- uled. Mr. Bruce, Planning and Public Works, said the committee met and he reported some of the stucco on the Old. Court House was removed by the architect to determine the condition of walls. There is a possibility this will call for revision in plan and asked Mr. Downey to present alterna- tive plans. The DeWitt Historical Society is advertising for bids on their moving to the Clinton House. The committee recommends the offices which will be vacated when Judge Simpson retires, on the second floor of the Court House, to be used temporarily to accommodate expansion associated with the establishment of a county administrator. They inter- viewed engineer with respect to Loop Road, Access road, etc. around the east side of the Town and will have a resolution later. They asked Glenn Turner, Airport Manager, to go ahead with Howard Stevenson to de- velop figures necessary for required fire protection at the airport. The committee decided not to take a position in the form of a resolution in respect to the Triphammer Route 13 Interchange. Mr. Kerr said he and Frank Liguori attended a flood plain zoning, flood insurance hearing at Corning. He said there will be an Environ- mental Management Council meeting Thursday and a person from the N.Y.S. Environmental Management Council will be there to discuss the problem as it relates to Tompkins County and further explain their proposed legislation. 364 December 10, 1973 Mr. Bruce said relative to the injunction to show cause as to why the County should not go before Ithaca Landmarks Commission in regard to demolition of Boardman House, the County Attorney is looking into various courses of action, such as 1) contest it or 2) request an adjourn- ment. He requested a recess to hear the County Attorney's report. If the committee decides what course of action, they will bring a resolution in supporting their recommendation. Mr. Marcham, Health Committee, said they are proposing a regular procedure for the review of health policy questions. Procedures and by laws that would relate to the health planning area will be brought to the next board. Relative to the hospital, he said it was 'unclear to whom the hospital construction committee reports. Mr. Graves said as they were appointed by the Board, they would report to the board. He said a letter was received from Extendicare outlining their present position. Also, there was an expression of interest from another proprietary group, AID, Inc. These will be filed for the next committee. He raised question of the wording of clarification of Resolution No. 303, the phrase acute care facility is indicated in Section dealing with $3 million. It seems to him something other than acute care was intended. Mr. Stevenson said the Construction Committee had discussed this and they interpreted it as a recovery area to go along with the operating room. He will be nominating people to fill vacancies on the Hospital Board of Managers, Mental Health Board and the Board of Health, at the next meeting. He will also be nominating someone to succeed Dr. Low as Medical Examiner. Mr. MacNeil, Social Services, reported they are in the process of finish- ing the lease for the additional space for the Social Services Department and there have been inquiries regarding an escalating clause as far as rent is concerned and he said there isn't one. FIe said a study was done on the cost of food at the County Farm for raw food costs vs. processed or cooked costs and the present cost of meals is $1.78 per day. The income from the sale of surplus produce that is raised on the farm, the anticipated revenue in 1973 is $15,000 and has been increasing each year. Deducting revenue from the $1.78 per day, the cost is currently $1.32 per day. They are recommending to maintain the operation as a status quo. Mrs. Schickel said the TC3 Construction Committee met December 6. She stated the general construction is 86%, electrical 77%, plumbing 95%, heating, ventilating and air conditioning is 81 %. The power is to be turned on shortly. She said there will be a prcvue Saturday, December 15. She read a resolution of appreciation from the TC3 Board of Trustees expressing their gratitude to the sponsoring Boards of Cortland and Tompkins County for the faithful efforts and support given the college. • Mr. Dates reported he attended a meeting December 5 regarding the Industrial Development Agency with bond attorneys and they have the Morse Chain project underway. Also, he attended a meeting in Bingham- ton regarding railroads and on December 7 attended a NYSE&G meeting. December 10, 1973 365 Mr. Kerr said they have an application for the Town of Lansing for an agricultural district and there will be a meeting of the Agricultural District Advisory Committee the first part of next year. The Chairman declared a recess at 10:37 a.m. for the Planning and Public Works Committee to meet. Business resumed at 11:08 a.m. It was agreed that resolutions not on the agenda pertaining to Authori- zation to hire engineer for route determination study — Highway; Board- man House, Alcoholism Grant, TC3 Construction Audit, be presented at this meeting.
