The Chautauqua County Planning Council is currently reviewing three more solar projects.

During this week’s Planning Board meeting, members were briefed on a solar project at 5246 Route 76 in Ripley, one at 9824 Route 60 in the town of Pomfret and one for Angell Road in the town of Hanover. . Last month Hanover officials discussed the Angell Highway project and in November Pomfret held a public hearing on the Highway 60 project.

It is proposed that all three projects be 5 megawatts or less. Ripley’s is different from the 270 megawatt solar project proposed in the same town. This project has been overdue for over a year. County Planning Council Chairman Douglas Bowen, who is also Ripley’s city supervisor, said that due to the size of the proposed 270-megawatt solar project, the state must give approval for it to go forward.

“Anything over 20 megawatts is subject to state scrutiny,” he said.

In a presentation to the county planning council, senior planner Matthew Bourke discussed some of the criteria used when evaluating solar projects.

He said the planning department is looking at agricultural impacts, visual impacts on neighboring residences, impacts on trails, if this creates a loss of forest land, what the solar law is for this municipality, and what the plan is. decommissioning and estimated costs. Usually, the county planning department helps determine if the project is of local interest or needs additional approvals. If it is a local issue, it is returned to the local municipality for final approval.

Other issues that the county planning department regularly reviews include impacts on wetlands, impacts on airports, whether there is a flood zone, details of road access, maintenance and maintenance plan. operation, and to ensure that there is a plan for a pollinator-friendly plantation after the solar project is built.

Bourke discussed the Angell Road project in more detail. He noted that the solar project site is 50 acres but the project will be placed on 12 to 13 acres of land. The upper half of the site contains vineyards, but the project is placed on vacant farmland.

This project has a decommissioning cost of $ 67,500, estimated at $ 120,000 over 30 years, using an inflation rate of 2%. This particular estimate of decommissioning does not include salvage value.

Pantelis Panteli, deputy director of public facilities, said dismantling renewable energy projects is a problem for many municipalities. “We asked New York State to develop a policy to protect us. We want something to protect all the counties ”, he said.

The county planning department recently reviewed a number of solar projects. Since May, there have been at least five more that have been taken to the Planning Council. One was at 4542 Baker St. in Busti, one on Barnes Road in Stockton, one at 4545 VanBuren Road in Pomfret and two solar projects in the city of Portland, both near the intersection of Highway 20 and Pecor / Fay Street.

According to Bourke, the planning department determined those five projects to be local concerns and provided informal feedback to each municipality for each project. It was up to each municipality to approve the project.

POUGHKEEPSIE – Dutchess County has received another limited supply of state home COVID-19 test kits which have been distributed to each municipality based on population size as well as to select community organizations that serve the underserved populations.

Municipalities will be distributing test kits to residents over the next few days, and residents should check their municipality’s website or call for specific information on when and where test kits will be available for pickup.

County executive Marc Molinaro said testing facilities across the county “have seen exponential growth in the number of residents seeking a COVID-19 test. These home testing kits are a critical step towards increasing access to testing within our community as we continue to tackle the surge in COVID-19 cases after the busy holiday season. “

To obtain a test kit, residents must provide their municipality with proof of residence. Residents can only get the free test kits from the municipality in which they reside (you cannot travel to another city to get a kit). As the supply continues to be limited, each household can receive a test kit, which includes two individual tests. Kits will be available on a first come, first served basis and residents who have already received a free kit are asked to allow others who were unable to obtain a kit to obtain one. Although supplies are limited, state distribution is expected to be recurring and the county will continue to work with local municipalities to distribute test kits as they are received.

Residents who test positive for a COVID-19 test at home should:

  • Self-isolate immediately, even if they are vaccinated; adhere to current quarantine guidelines; and
  • take a photo of the positive home test result within 24 hours and report the positive case to the Dutchess County Behavioral and Community Health Department (DBCH) at www.dutchessny.gov/COVIDpositive

With a high volume of active cases, contract tracers may not be able to contact people in a timely manner, so residents are advised to follow isolation protocols during their quarantine period. If a resident’s symptoms worsen or if they have difficulty breathing after a positive home test result, they should see their doctor or call 9-1-1.

The Municipality of Chatham-Kent said Wheatley was prepared to deal with another “expected” gas leak, which is expected to occur in the “next few days” near the site where an explosion occurred this summer.

In a press release Thursday, officials said they had properly ventilated the area so that if a gas leak did occur, they would be ready.

According to the municipality, gas was last detected at the site on November 21 – the second time gas has been found since the explosion in late August. Based on previous records, which show gas build-up and release to occur between 38 and 47 days, another release is expected in the next few days, officials said.

The municipality also warned residents that they could see a flame during the gas leak.

On December 23, authorities announced that a second gas well had been discovered near the site of the explosion. The discovery halted ongoing excavation work and the municipality said the well was under investigation.

It is not known if this well is linked to the explosion that prevented some residents and businesses from returning.

Inspectors collecting information, supervised area

Now, the municipality said, this second well has been connected to a test separator.

A test separator diverts water from the well to a storage tank and will send all gases to a temporary ventilation stack, “with the capacity to flare,” the municipality said in the statement.

He said the test separator will also allow sampling and data logging during the gas leak which the team can then analyze.

Oil inspectors from the Ministry of Northern Development, Mines, Natural Resources and Forests (MRNND) went to the site to gather information.

Emergency services and security personnel will continue to monitor the area.

The municipality said resident visits and wintering of buildings can resume “when it is appropriate to do so.”

“Decades ago for construction projects, poor working people from Sc, ST, BC and minority communities participated, they reside here. Nagarjunasagar became a municipality. They built houses on a small piece of land. It is of the responsibility of the government to provide them Pattas ”, declared the CM.

Taipei, December 24 (CNA) An amendment to the Local Government Act paving the way for a merger between Hsinchu city and Hsinchu county and the transition to special municipality status passed in committee after passing its first legislative obstacle Friday.

The amendment bill, sponsored by Progressive Democratic Party (DPP) lawmaker Ker Chien-ming (柯建銘), has passed its first reading on the floor of the Legislative Assembly and will now be referred to relevant committees for consideration .

Proposals by opposition lawmakers to send the bill back to the Procedure Committee, where the agendas for bills that reach the Legislative Assembly are set, were rejected by 45 votes to 56.

The amendment seeks to lower the bar on creating special municipalities in Taiwan by removing the minimum population requirement in a region.

Currently, only a region with a population of 1.25 million and more that has “particular needs in terms of political, economic, cultural and metropolitan development” can be reconstituted as a special municipality, in accordance with Article 4 of the law on local authorities.

The bill is part of the DPP’s offer to merge Hsinchu City with Hsinchu County, an area home to Hsinchu Science Park as well as the headquarters of contract chip maker Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Co.

The DPP’s plan would also aim to transform the unified region into a special municipality.

As of November 2021, around 1.02 million people resided in the combined region, including 452,665 in Hsinchu City and 575,131 in Hsinchu County, according to local government figures.

In his proposal, DPP’s Ker, who also heads the party’s caucus in the legislature, wrote that population should no longer be a requirement when it comes to establishing a special municipality due to the declining number of people. Taiwan’s birth rate and increasingly digitized governance.

Instead, the country’s overall land planning and industrial developments in each region should be taken into account, Ker wrote, saying the creation of special municipalities would help bridge the gap between urban and rural areas while improving the competitiveness of the country.

Merger talks began to surface in September when the mayor of Hsinchu city, Lin Chih-chien (林智堅) of the DPP, said it was important for the Hsinchu region to become a special municipality in order to continue. His development.

Lin said at the time that residents of the Hsinchu area contributed NT $ 190 billion ($ 6.78 billion) in taxes per year – ranking fifth in the country – but budgets allocated by the central government to the region for its infrastructure had fallen. behind other special municipalities.

Special municipalities are entitled to a greater share of budgets from central government tax revenues compared to counties and cities at the county level.

Lin’s point of view was supported by DPP President and Chairman Tsai Ing-wen (蔡英文), who said at a party meeting on Wednesday that the merger of Hsinchu City and Hsinchu County was “a fairly urgent matter”.

The region has been the hub of Taiwan’s technology industry and its merger and upgrading would give it more power in governance and capacity, and subsequently promote the development of key industries in the country, a- she added.

However, the Kuomintang (KMT), the largest opposition party in the Legislature, questioned the DPP’s motives.

The KMT accused the DPP of preparing for Lin to run for mayor of Hsinchu again in the local elections in November 2022, which would only be possible if the merger took place.

Under current Taiwanese laws, city mayors and county magistrates are limited to two four-year terms. However, if the merger of Hsinchu City and Hsinchu County is completed, Lin, who is currently serving his second term, could run for mayor of the newly established Combined Municipality.

On the other hand, Hsinchu County Magistrate Yang Wen-ke (楊 文科) of the KMT said he was not opposed to Lin’s idea but believed the merger should also include the neighboring county of Miaoli.

In that case, Yang continued, the DPP would not need to push for the amendment because the population of the three locations would exceed the 1.25 million required by current law.

There are currently six special municipalities in Taiwan – Taipei, New Taipei, Taoyuan, Taichung, Tainan and Kaohsiung – which together account for nearly 70% of Taiwan’s 2.35 million people, according to data from the Ministry of the Interior. (ME).

Any proposed upgrading to special municipality status must be reviewed by the Interior Ministry, which will then submit its recommendation to Cabinet for final approval.
