As you may know, your Town Board has been working for 18 months on a
to be placed on town owned property. We are utilizing the
landfill property and 10 acres across Route 55
. Alternate considerations for the site were examined but none presented us with a better balance of annual revenue with zero investment costs.
So our Town will lease land to
East Light Partners,
a solar developer, who will be responsible for constructing and maintaining our development while paying us an
annual lease payment.
We asked, during negotiations, to have
a list of construction & maintenance jobs
so that Union Vale residents could have first crack at them, if they so desired. We are not the decision makers about who gets the jobs, but you, our residents will see them first.
That list on the bottom of this email.
Finally, there are
subscriptions available for 400 - 500 residents
to get the (state controlled)
10% discount on Central Hudson bills
if you want to subscribe to this program. We want to give all of those discounts to Union Vale households & business owners. If we do not take advantage of all of them, East Light Partners will be permitted to offer those discounts to non-residents. Here is your opportunity to get on the subscription wait list.
