TYRE NEWSLETTER MAY 14, 2021


Town of Tyre residents-                                                                                            May 14, 2021

On April 28, 2021, Delaware River Solar (DRS) approached the Town to present an introduction and conceptual plan to build a 1,600 acre solar farm in the Town of Tyre. 

You may be aware that on the Seneca Falls, NY side of NYS Rt. 318, there is currently a solar farm under construction there in our neighboring town. This letter is to inform you of a proposal here in the Town of Tyre.

At the point of this writing, the developers have notified the Town that they have secured a total of 932 acres through land leases with 4 property owners in Tyre.  Their intention is to secure another 668 acres, through landowner leases.  DRS indicated that their specific target area is Gravel Road and its vicinity.  As can be seen below, we have included a map which was given to the Town by the developer, outlining the projected area.

Key: Potential area for development (yellow),  Land under site control (blue), Transmission line (red)

*THE SENECA FALLS SOLAR FARM ON RT. 318 IS NOT IDENTIFIED ON THIS MAP*

Please note that New York State has enacted a new procedure for these large scale solar farms to obtain permits for their plans and construction.  On April 03, 2020, NYS passed the Accelerated Renewable Energy Growth and Community Benefit Act.  Governor Cuomo has pursued his initiative of fast tracking this permitting process with a board he has developed entitled the “Office of Renewable Energy Siting (ORES)”.   Accordingly, ORES was developed in keeping with the Governors “nation-leading clean energy and climate goals”, including his directive to obtain 70% of the state’s electricity from renewable sources by 2030.  This process is seen as, “the most aggressive climate and clean energy initiative in the nation, calling for an orderly and just transition to clean energy”, according to the Governor’s September 16, 2020 announcement to combat climate change.

This NYS ORES board was created for large scale energy projects (over 25 megawatts) to review the developers plans and to fast track the permit process at the state level.  This board is described as follows, “The new siting process provides a one-stop process with increased certainty and predictability to develop renewable energy projects in New York State.  The ORES approach proactively addresses the key recurring issues in siting and permitting large-scale renewable projects, effectively de-risking the permitting process”.  This was cited in the announcement of Governor Cuomo’s regulations for ORES.

This process previously rested with the localities for the developers to obtain approval or not through the Town and/or Planning Boards.  This is a challenging situation for localities due to this new law having been passed.  As is being witnessed in various upstate New York municipalities, such as Conquest, NY for example, this new process has been problematic for Towns to attempt and intervene to save their farmlands.  In Conquest, NY, the solar farm proposal is for 2,000 acres in a Town with a population not unlike the size of Tyre.

As can be seen throughout Seneca County, there have been several landowners who have leased their lands to different solar companies to build these projects.  Fayette, Waterloo, Seneca Falls, are just some of the Towns in our immediate area contending with these projects.  Landowners are being offered significant sums of money by these companies to quit farming and turn their properties into solar farms.  It has come to our attention that some of these property owners are deciding that the land lease is a better financial proposition than continued farming, or in other cases, business owners are leasing their land as well to the solar companies.  Please understand that we do not oppose renewable energy.  However, farmland is a very valuable asset. In the end, the decision to forever eliminate this farmland may very well affect all of us with food shortages, skyrocketing food prices, and a lessoned sense of self responsibility in growing, tending to, and keeping our food local.  These are difficult decisions for all involved and the homeowners that are surrounding these solar farms will surely be impacted with newfound challenges from potential property values being decreased and quality of life issues as they look out of their windows and no longer see fields of growing crops but instead view fields of solar panels, transforming our landscape forevermore.

Please know that your Town is working diligently to request assistance from Senator Helming and Assemblyman Gallahan to protect the interests of our residents. We continue to ask questions and explore our options. The Town has also secured an environmental attorney to assist in this matter and guide us through this process. Costs for the bulk of these professional services are to be reimbursed by the developer. 

DRS has advised the Town that this 1600 acre project in Tyre is their largest project to date.  Many questions were asked of the developer during their initial presentation.  At this point in time, we have not received many answers to our various questions.  DRS was asked to change the name of their project by removing the word “Tyre” from their proposed “Tyre Solar Energy Center” project.  They have agreed to do so per our request. We have not been informed as to the new name for this proposed project as of yet.

The Town will be having ongoing discussions with various stakeholders in this process to ascertain the Town’s role in this newly enacted procedure at the state level, considering this new ORES board in Albany, NY is now reviewing all municipal projects larger than 25 megawatts, instead of the local municipalities through their elected boards.

Although the Town has previously enacted a solar law that limits the amount of acreage of large scale solar farms, it is our understanding that the Town will not have the final say in granting permissions to build.  That decision will be granted by Governor Cuomo’s ORES board.

It is my intention to INFORM THE RESIDENTS OF TYRE of this massive project. We continue to hold our Town Board meetings in person. I invite all interested parties to have a voice in this matter, and we will take every opportunity to forward our concerns to Albany.  I ask for your help and support in this endeavor to work together as a community for the best interests of everyone in our Town.

Please keep abreast of our website tyreny.com for updates on this matter.

Respectfully,

Ron

TYRE NEWSLINE UPDATE MARCH 2021

TYRE NEWS UPDATE 2021

There has been a lot of time and effort associated with the awarding of the Galen-Clyde contract regarding fire protection for the Town of Tyre. I would like to provide some background information in an effort to explain (and to clear up any misinformation) as to what led us to this current decision and also to take this opportunity to let our community know the facts regarding this particularly important decision.

As can be seen by this resolution below, the Town of Tyre Town Board voted unanimously, to contract with the Galen-Clyde Fire District. 

NOVEMBER 19, 2020

RESOLUTION OF TOWN BOARD OF THE TOWN OF TYRE AUTHORIZING FIRE PROTECTION CONTRACT WITHIN THE TYRE FIRE PROTECTION DISTRICT FOR THE YEAR 2021.

WHEREAS, there has been established in the Town of Tyre a fire protection district known as the “Tyre Fire Protection District” embracing the territory in the whole of said Town wholly outside of any city or village as such territory is more fully described establishing such district duly previously adopted by The Town of Tyre Town Board, and

WHEREAS, it is necessary to enter into a contract for the furnishing of fire protection to the said fire protection district, and

WHEREAS, due notice has been given of a public hearing to be held at the Town of Tyre Town Hall, 1082 Gravel Road, Seneca Falls, New York 13148 on November 19, 2020 at 6:30 p.m. prevailing time to consider a contract for the furnishing of fire protection to the said fire protection district, the notice duly specifying the time and place of the hearing as aforesaid, and giving in general terms the proposed contract, and the said hearing having been held, and all persons interested in appearing having been heard,

 NOW THEREFORE, BE IT

RESOLVED, That the Town of Tyre shall contract with the Galen-Clyde Fire District for the furnishing of fire protection to the Tyre Fire Protection District for the period commencing at January 1, 2021 through and including December 31, 2021 for the sum in the total amount of One Hundred Fifty-Five Thousand Dollars ($155,000.00) together with such other terms and conditions as are stated in such contract, a copy of which is attached hereto; and it is further,

RESOLVED, That such contract be executed on behalf of this Board by the Town Supervisor on behalf of members thereof.


The adoption of the foregoing Resolution was moved by Councilman Reginald Aceto, seconded by Councilman Kenneth Sutterby, and duly put to a vote, which resulted as follows:

NameYeaNayAbstainAbsent
Supervisor Ronald F. McGreevyP   
Councilman Kenneth A. SutterbyP   
Councilman James RogersP   
Councilman Thomas ThomsonP   
Councilman Reginald AcetoP   

The Resolution was duly adopted.

November 19, 2020                                                                                                                                                                 

Throughout the course of the past year it had become increasingly evident that action needed to be taken to assure comprehensive fire protection service to our Town.  At one point in time, Magee Fire Chief Craig Reynolds advised the Board that his department had not responded to 4 emergency calls and that he could not give any assurance that Magee firefighters would be able to respond to calls in the future as required in their contract with the Town. This information, in addition to the ongoing reports of nonstop in-fighting within that department, the constant threats to this office of fire fighters planning to quit due to this in-fighting, various New York State Agency Investigations taking place within that department, Workplace Violence Allegations, as well as a multitude of other matters, led to the difficult and heartbreaking decision to look elsewhere for reliable fire protection.

The Town Board then proceeded to seek the advice of Attorney Mark C. Butler in an effort to give us options for moving forward with future fire protection for our residents. Attorney Butler’s specialty is New York State fire department law. It was confirmed by legal counsel that the Town has No Legal Authority to intervene in Magee’s internal struggles. Again, after much research, time and effort, the Town Board decided to move in a different direction and seek an alternative to the Magee Fire Department for fire protection.

 As a result, the Town of Tyre has contracted with the Galen-Clyde Fire District for 2021. There has been a tremendous amount of work that has been completed in a noticeably short period of time by the folks in the Galen-Clyde Fire Department.  They have been working with Seneca County and Wayne County officials, Local Law Enforcement officials, the NYS Thruway Authority, neighboring fire departments (creating an updated mutual aid agreement), del Lago officials, all the while maintaining a clear and open path of communication with this office keeping us updated on this process. They have met with firefighters from Magee Volunteer Fire Department, offering them training, as well as outlining the process for them to apply for membership to Galen-Clyde with the associated expectations of their department. 

Galen-Clyde’s clear commitment to ensure all stakeholders are being brought to the table, to work together on the same mission, which is to offer fire protection to the Town of Tyre. This has been truly commendable, and at the same time, this work has been respectful of the long standing Magee Fire Department which has been an integral part of this community for so many years. 

It has also been quite commendable that Chief Tavano from the Galen-Clyde Fire Department has secured a bay at Petro to house a fire truck. This bay at Petro is being staffed with Volunteer fire fighters as often they can, ready to respond when called. Because of the comprehensive planning and leadership of this department, they have provided Tyre with a quicker response time in the majority of cases, simply because fire fighters are often times at their truck stationed here in Tyre. 

We look forward to working with Galen-Clyde and thank everyone involved for their continued commitment and dedication to working as a team to ensure proper and consistent fire protection for our town.

As always, please feel free to stop in and visit me at the Tyre Municipal Building with any questions or concerns you may have.  I look forward to hearing from you!

Sincerely,

Ron

TYRE VOTING LOCATION INFORMATION

TYRE VOTING LOCATION INFORMATION

As indicated in our annual Tyre Newsline mailed out to residents in December 2020, the township was looking for feedback on the location preference for voting purposes. 

The request for information, as can be seen below, was taken from the December 2020 Tyre Newsline.

“This year, our country had a Presidential election and with this occurrence, it has brought up discussions concerning our own voting location here in the Town of Tyre.  For many years, our residents have voted at the Tyre Band Hall Building, located at 616 Lamb Road here in Tyre.  However, now that the Town has been fortunate enough to have built a new Municipal Building at 1082 Gravel Road, some residents are asking why our voting is not taking place in this new building.  There appears to be a mix of opinions, with some residents preferring to continue to vote at the Band Hall, while others voicing their wishes to have the location of voting changed to the new Municipal Building.  In order to ascertain what the majority of Tyre residents would prefer for their voting location in 2021, please contact us by January 31, 2021 either by phone at: (315) 835-0206 or email us at: adminassistant@tyreny.com.  Please let us know your thoughts on this issue!  We will gather the feedback of the community and share the information, once obtained, on our website at: www.tyreny.com.  Thank you in advance for your input in determining the location for future voting in Tyre.”

As a result of input received, it appears that the preferred voting location should remain at its’ current location: Tyre Band Hall Building
                616 Lamb Road
                Seneca Falls, N.Y. 13148

In the future, this location could be changed to the Tyre Municipal Building if enough desire is brought forth to do so.

Thank you to everyone who contacted the Town to express their wishes for voting locations in Tyre!

DECEMBER 2020 TYRE NEWSLINE

                                                  DECEMBER 2020

MERRY CHRISTMAS AND HAPPY HOLIDAYS FROM TYRE NEWSLINE!

It is once again that time of year to wish all the residents of Tyre a fantastic holiday season!  It has been quite a year, one that will not easily be forgotten, this year of 2020.  The various struggles, along with our lives being turned upside down with the reported COVID-19 Pandemic situation, the extreme economic impact it has had on our state and the nation, as well as the current attempts being made to rebuild businesses and lives, have certainly been a challenge for us all.  Moving forward into 2021 this is for sure a lot to absorb.  Throughout all of these challenges, your Town has been active in a variety of ways and it is our hope that this annual letter can share some of the accomplishments that have culminated in the year of 2020.

We do have a lot to be proud of and certainly a lot to be thankful for.

Let us discuss the Highway Department and their activities throughout 2020.  First and foremost, we are blessed to have replaced a number of our aging vehicles and related equipment.  Most recently we have taken delivery of a new ten wheel dump truck with snowplow, as well as a new excavator.  It is important to note that all of our recently acquired Highway Department purchases have been paid for, debt free. The Highway Department Building itself has had a new roof installed that will last for many years. This was a much needed repair.  Nearpass Road was completely repaved this year and actually came in under budget!  As with the purchase of equipment, all of our roadwork was completed and fully funded without taking on any debt to the Town.  Besides a full overhaul of Nearpass Road, the Town completed partial resurfacing of East Tyre Road, Lamb Road, Blackbrook Road, Dawson Road, Chase Road, and a small portion of East Road.  It is unknown if towns will receive much, if any, of the annual highway funding from New York State that it has been accustomed to in years past. To eliminate taking on any future debt, we will carefully consider our roadwork projects for the upcoming year. 

The Town continues to attract new development, and even throughout the craziness of 2020, Tyre has been busy working with several developers that wish to put down roots in our community.  We have been collaborating with the Love’s Travel Stops and Country Stores throughout 2020.  All necessary approvals have been granted and Love’s advises us that their plan is to break ground in the Spring of 2021. Tyre has also attracted Dunkin Donuts and they plan on constructing a store on NYS Route 414 next to Love’s in the near future!  We may also see an IHOP (International House of Pancakes) locating here in 2021. These businesses will surely enhance our commercial corridor with exciting new establishments for our residents and travelers alike who come to visit our beautiful Finger Lakes area.  Considering the whirlwind of 2020 that everyone has been contending with, we consider ourselves incredibly lucky here in Tyre to be working with these developers at this point in our State’s uncertain future.  These businesses are certainly welcome in our community and they have a home here!

Our Planning Board members have certainly been busy throughout 2020, with a number of developers discussing their plans to establish new businesses in the Town of Tyre. In addition, The Town has made a change in legal representation in 2020.  We have engaged a new attorney to work with our Planning Board as well as other Town related matters.  Mr. Donald Young, Esq. has been engaged by the Town to join the team and help with a new direction the Town is taking with a “business friendly” initiative, to welcome investors and businesses alike.  Attorney Young has been a beneficial addition to our team and we are happy to welcome him.

This year, our country had a Presidential election and with this occurrence, it has brought up discussions concerning our own voting location here in the Town of Tyre.  For many years, our residents have voted at the Tyre Band Hall Building, located at 616 Lamb Road here in Tyre.  However, now that the Town has been fortunate enough to have built a new Municipal Building at 1082 Gravel Road, some residents are asking why our voting is not taking place in this new building.  There appears to be a mix of opinions, with some residents preferring to continue to vote at the Band Hall, while others voicing their wishes to have the location of voting changed to the new Municipal Building.  In order to ascertain what the majority of Tyre residents would prefer for their voting location in 2021, please contact us by January 31, 2021 either by phone at: (315) 835-0206 or email us at: adminassistant@tyreny.com.  Please let us know your thoughts on this issue!  We will gather the feedback of the community and share the information, once obtained, on our website at: www.tyreny.com.  Thank you in advance for your input in determining the location for future voting in Tyre.

In regards to the Band Hall, the Tyre Band Hall Committee has been in the process of changing the building into a Community Center for Tyre.  The interior was painted and repaired by Mark Travis, thanks to a grant from Senator Michael Nozzolio several years ago.  Rich Amidon was subsequently hired to rebuild the existing kitchen. The original pass-through was kept and the original kitchen shelf was salvaged and moved to the meeting room to be used for displays.  A handicap accessible rest room had also been added.  Dennis Stone volunteered his time and talents to replace the original blackboards and is rebuilding an oak cabinet.  Our committee members have given their time and efforts to work on this project and it is very much appreciated.  Because of the reported COVID-19 Pandemic situation we have been unable to use the building for programs and events that were planned for 2020, but we are hopeful that it will be possible to present an Open House in the fall of 2021.  The Band Hall Committee members are appointed by the Town Board and they are the following: Patsy Amidon, Marge Fahrenholz (chair), Jean Horton,  Pat Mahoney (treasurer) and Char Verkey.  The liaisons for the Town Board are Councilmen Jim Rogers and Ken Sutterby.

Financially, the Town is in a good position.  With years of careful and conservative fiscal budgeting, Tyre has put aside a portion of the NYS Gaming Tax Revenue funds it has received into a reserve account.  Unfortunately, we have had to use some of these funds to get us through the 2020 budget due to the unforeseen NYS shutdown of del Lago and many other businesses in our area due to the reported COVID-19 Pandemic.  It is helpful that we have recently received a very small portion of our allotted Gaming Tax Revenue that New York State shares with Tyre as the host community.  However, when the Governor mandated the shutdown of the casino for approximately 6 months, the funds we would have received earlier this year were obviously reduced by a very significant amount, over 1 million dollars.  With the unknown future of mandated shutdowns of businesses in New York State, our ability to plan for and budget for 2021 has been a difficult proposition.  We have not budgeted for any NYS Gaming Tax Revenue in 2021 in an attempt to plan for the worst, but hope for the best!  Our adopted 2021 budget expenses have been reduced by nearly 2 million dollars, and our recently enacted 2020 spending moratorium will likely continue until the overall economic situation stabilizes. It is hoped that 2021 will bring back the previously healthy financial situations we have enjoyed over the past few years.

Once again, del Lago Resort & Casino has funded the fire tax for The Town of Tyre in 2021 and therefore, you will not see a fire tax amount on your property tax bill.  The Town is incredibly grateful that del Lago assisted the Town by pre-paying the fire tax for 2021.  This way, the Town could budget in advance for this cost and be absolutely certain these funds would be available for this payment for fire protection which is due in January 2021.  This action, by itself will save our taxpayers from an additional cost on their property tax bill that otherwise would have been needed to be implemented. 

It should also be noted that the Town of Tyre has made a change in who we contract with for Fire Protection Services for the Town of Tyre Fire Protection District.  For many, many years Tyre has engaged the Magee Volunteer Fire Department for the annual fire protection contract.  As the result of numerous concerns raised, and after obtaining expert legal advice, the Town decided to explore options to determine what other opportunities there were for fire protection in the Town of Tyre. Much time and effort went into making this decision, always keeping the best interests and safety of our residents first and foremost.  During this process, the Galen-Clyde Fire Department offered the Town a contract that was, not only less in cost, but also offered fire protection that would ensure response on a timely and consistent basis, without all of the issues and uncertainties currently facing Magee.  We sincerely thank the Magee Volunteer Fire Department and its’ members for their years of service to Tyre, and we truly hope that the internal issues that they are currently facing can be resolved in the near future.

We would like to take this opportunity also to thank our Highway Department personnel, our Volunteers and Members who serve on our Planning Board, Zoning Board of Appeals, Band Hall Committee, Attorneys and Engineers, as well as all Staff Members and Elected Officials in our Town. Thank you for your service!

Finally, a very Special Thanks goes out to Elizabeth Sutterby (“Tootie”) for her 44 years of service and dedication to the Office of Tyre Town Clerk. A well deserved retirement!

WE WISH EVERYONE A VERY MERRY CHRISTMAS AND A HAPPY NEW YEAR !

Respectfully,

Ronald F. McGreevy
