WHEREAS, pursuant to Resolution No. 332 dated September 15, 2015, the

regulating the use of Ulster County electric vehicle charging stations; and

WHEREAS, at the time the “Ulster County Electric Vehicle Charging Station

Policy” was adopted, the decision to offer the electric free of charge to all noncommercial vehicles was being vetted; and

County Comptroller that the manner in which electric is currently being offered is

unconstitutional and corrective action should be taken; and

WHEREAS, the Ulster County Legislature has a responsibility to protect the

County from acting in violation of the New York Constitution, and to limit liability

regarding potential litigation pursuant to Section 51 of the General Municipal Law;

now, therefore, be it

RESOLVED, that it shall be the policy of Ulster County to charge a fee-forservice in regards to use of Ulster County charging stations that is appropriate for the

investment including, but not limited to, system and equipment service and

maintenance, the cost of electricity, and liability to the county for damages to

personal property; and, be it further

RESOLVED, that the Ulster County Legislature hereby amends the “Ulster

County Electric Vehicle Charging Station Policy” to add an additional section

addressing fees for electric use, as attached hereto as Exhibit A,
