    Counsel Walter Garigliano displayed two site plan maps for the Board and those present to review showing the location of the parcels that constitute the Rock Meadow Partners project in Narrowsburg.  Mr. Garigliano described the two separate cohorts of property (the school section and the baseball field section) and how they fit into the project.  Using that information he then handed out the proposed Payment in Lieu of Tax Agreement for the project and described how the PILOT would be structured.

    Mr. Garigliano then handed out a letter from Rock Meadow Partners managing member Kathleen Weiden that advised the Board of a correction to their application to the Agency regarding the expected sales and use taxes for the project.  They had interpreted the question incorrectly and the corrected amount is now estimated in the amount up to $900,000, which indicates $72,000 of sales tax.

    The resolution amending Agency resolution #18-15 relating to the Rock Meadow Partners was handed out to the Board.  The Board discussed the project briefly and it was stated that without IDA assistance this project would not have happened. Mr. Siegel made a motion to approve the amended resolution.  The motion was seconded by Ms. Loughlin, the Board voted and the resolution was unanimously approved.

    Ms. Brylinski gave the Board an update relating to the Sullivan County Funding Corporation’s Cost Sharing for Grantwriting Assistance Program and handed out a list of possible elements to request in cost sharing proposals.  The Board discussed the program and agreed with the direction it was going.


    There being no public comment, on a motion made by Mr. Siegel and seconded by Mr. Barbuti, at approximately 10:30 am the meeting was adjourned.            

    Respectfully submitted:
    Jennifer CS Brylinski
    Executive Director
