Mr. Stec reported that GASB #45 would establish possible requirements for retirement benefits. Mr. Belden questioned if this service was mandated by the State and Mr. Stec replied it was an accounting standard that required municipalities to identify potential exposure for future retirees benefits. Mr. Stec added it could effect the County’s future bond rating, depending whether or not the County was GASB #45 compliant.

Rob Lynch, Deputy County Treasurer, explained that GASB #45 would provide a footnote in the County’s financial statements, disclosing what the County’s future responsibility would be for retirees health insurance.

Mr. Stec reported Item 9 was a request from Chairman Monroe to address the Committee regarding the sale of County property at the intersection of Gurney Lane and Route 9. He noted that Resolution No. 464 of 2007 was attached for review.

Chairman Monroe said the County needed to seriously consider selling unused property and he added that he believed that the property across the road that was being discussed was very valuable and he could not foresee it ever being used for County purposes in the future. He suggested that the property be placed on the market with an open bid, allowing the County the right to reject any bid, which could lead to a high offer. Mr. VanNess reminded the Committee that the parcel in discussion was on the market a few years ago with a minimum bid of $1.3 million.

Finance Committee August 6, 2008 Page 5 Motion was made by Mr. VanNess and seconded by Mr. Belden to advertise for the sale of Tax Map Parcel No. 288.-1-62 with no minimum bid required, and providing the County the right to refuse any and all bids.

Mr. Belden suggested that the other County-owned parcel adjacent to the aforementioned property be included in the motion as well.

Mr. Dusek recommended that a clause be included that stated that the successful bidder be responsible for any surveys and subdivision approvals if necessary.

Mr. VanNess amended his motion to include Tax Map Parcel No. 288.-1-49 to be advertised for the sale along with Tax Map Parcel No. 288.-1-62, to go out as separate bids and separate parcels and to include a clause that stated that the successful bidder be responsible for any surveys and subdivision approvals if necessary. Mr. Belden seconded the amended motion.

Discussion ensued. In response to an inquiry, Mr. Dusek explained that the properties could not be listed with a realtor under law. He further stated that there were two different sets of laws which applied to foreclosed upon properties for tax purposes, which did provide more flexibility; however, he said, property that was owned by the County and considered surplus property, according to County law, which was established by State law, it must be declared surplus and it must be put out to bid.

Mr. Payne reported that he had spoken with Len Fosbrook, President of the Economic Development Corporation (EDC), who advised that EDC had two national websites that listed developmental properties for corporations. He noted that the aforementioned properties could be listed on the national websites as well. Mr. Stec suggested that posting the properties on the national websites be included in the motion.

Mr. VanNess amended his motion to include that the information on the properties be forwarded to EDC to be posted on the national website and Mr. Belden seconded the amended motion.

Following discussions, Mr. Stec called the question and the motion was carried unanimously to advertise for the sale of Tax Map Parcel No. 288.-1-62 and No. 288.-1to go out as separate bids and separate parcels and to include a clause that stated that the successful bidder be responsible for any surveys and subdivision approvals if necessary, with no minimum bid required, and providing the County the right to refuse any and all bids, and that the information on the properties be forwarded to EDC to be posted on the national website.

A) Perkins interest in possibly acquiring the Ciba-Geigy property;

B) Alliance Labor Negotiations; and

C) Litigation - Alexy et. al. v. Otte (Town of Queensbury Real Property Tax Article and CPLR 78 matters).

Mr. Dusek said with regard to Item 10A, he had been contacted by the attorney representing Perkins Recycling and they had expressed interest in purchasing the CibaGeigy property. He reminded the Committee that the site was unique and consisted of approximately fourteen acres and currently, Perkins was leasing a small portion of the property from the County. He stated that when the property had been acquired from Ciba-Geigy, there was a provision in which the County would indemnify Ciba-Geigy against any kind of liability that could arise in the future concerning contamination at the site.

Discussion ensued with respect to the site and items that occupied it. Mr. Dusek expressed his concern that if the property was sold and was set up in a typical fashion in which it would be a corporation that owned the property that may or may not have significant assets, if something were to happen on that site, the County would be responsible for any contamination on the site. He further stated the only way that parcel could ever be sold would be if the County obtained an insurance policy or some sort of protection against that liability or the County could perform a full scale environmental audit of the property prior to selling it.

Motion was made by Mr. Bentley, seconded by Mr. VanNess and carried by a majority vote to determine the exact acreage that Perkins Recycling was interested in purchasing and to pursue the sale of the Ciba-Geigy property, including further research of the County’s obligations to DEC (Department of Environmental Conservation), with Messrs. Kenny, Champagne and Stec voting in opposition.

Mr. Dusek expounded Item 10B concerned Sheriff’s Employees Alliance Labor Negotiations. He announced that the Alliance did approve the proposal for the settlement of the union contract for 2008, 2009 and 2010 and the next step was for the County to approve the contract.

Motion was made by Mr. VanNess, seconded by Mr. Champagne and carried unanimously to approve the agreement with the Sheriff’s Employees Alliance for 2008, 2009 and 2010. The necessary resolution was authorized for the next board meeting.
