              Upon a majority vote of its total membership the Board went into Executive Session at 11:02 AM to discuss issues regarding the financials of specific corporations, moved by Mr. Alport and seconded by Mr. Barbuti. 

              At 11:20 AM the Board came out of Executive Session, moved by Mr. White and seconded by Mr. Barbuti. 


              The Board discussed the setting of a Public Hearing for the EPT Concord II projects, and set the date/time/place as March 12th, 2 PM, at the Town of Thompson Town Hall, Hearing Room, in the Town of Thompson. 

              The Board then heard a proposal from Mark McCarthy, Supervisor of the Town of Neversink, and Robert Easterly, representative for the West Delaware Hydro Associates project.  This project has been in an agreement with the IDA since 1986, with amendments in 2007.  The Town and the Project requested that the IDA remain in title of the project for another five years, as agreed to by the Town, the Town Assessor, and the Project principals.  This new agreement would amend and extend the current leaseback agreement and the new PILOT would be dispersible to the taxing jurisdictions.  The proposal would increase the stability of future financials for the project.  On a motion by Ms. Loughlin, seconded by Mr. Sykes, the Board unanimously approved the amendment and extension.

    Chairman Steingart questioned the Board and those present if there were any further questions or comments.  There being none, on a motion by Mr. White, seconded by Mr. Barbuti the Board voted and the meeting was adjourned at approximately 1:51 PM.

                                                              Respectfully submitted:
                                                              Jennifer CS Brylinski
                                                              Executive Director
