WHEREAS, Hurricane Irene devastated Ulster County leaving in its wake

considerable property damage; and

WHEREAS, Clair Road in the Town of Denning was rendered impassable by

the storm and required extensive repair; and

WHEREAS, through consultation with the County of Ulster and Empire State

Development of New York State, the Town of Denning applied for and was approved

to receive certain grants from the State of New York through the New York Works

Program to help remediate, mitigate and reduce flooding in Ulster County; and

is required to undertake efforts to facilitate the release of grant funding approved

through the New York Works Program; and

WHEREAS, the Town of Denning, in reliance upon its approval for a grant

through the New York Works Program, completed necessary steps to contract with

Kingston Equipment Rental/Baker Brothers to remediate flood damage and help

mitigate future flooding on Clair Road; and

WHEREAS, work was completed in November 2012; and

WHEREAS, the County of Ulster has failed to complete the required steps to

facilitate the grant process and, as a result, the sum of $25,300.80 has not been

released to the Town of Denning to cover its flood remediation and mitigation costs;

and

WHEREAS, the Town of Denning has paid in full the reimbursable

$25,300.88 due to Kingston Equipment Rental/Baker Brothers; and

WHEREAS, the Town of Denning continues to suffer financial hardship as a

result of the flood remediation and mitigation costs; now, therefore, be it

the New York Works Program, is delivered to the Commissioner of Finance;

and, be it further
