Legislators Carl Belfiglio, David Donaldson, John Parete, and Mary Wawro offer the

following:

WHEREAS, pursuant to Resolution No. 371, dated October 21, 2014, the

Ulster County Legislature delegated the authority to the Ulster County Coalition

Against Narcotics to study ways in which to identify how individuals can be helped,

identify other ways to prevent abuse, and identify ways in which to protect the public

from opiate drug abuse in Ulster County; and

WHEREAS, pursuant to Resolution No. 371 of 2014, the Ulster County

Coalition Against Narcotics was to submit a written report of its findings and

recommendations to the County Legislature no later than six months after its first

meeting for consideration, review, and appropriate action, if necessary; and

WHEREAS, the review and assessment of intervention, treatment, education

and prevention resources within Ulster County were identified as the principle focus

of the coalition, thus an Intervention and Treatment sub-committee and an Education

and Prevention sub-committee were formed to assist with the research and

investigation, with an eye towards forming policy recommendations; and

WHEREAS, the sub-committees have met frequently, individual members

have attended state and national conferences on the subject matter, members recently

testified at a June 2, 2015 hearing of the State Senate Task Force on Heroin and

Opioid Addiction examining the issues facing communities in the wake of increased

heroin abuse; and

WHEREAS, on June 17, 2015 the coalition met with the Commissioner of the

Ulster County Department of Health to discuss services currently provided in Ulster

County; and

WHEREAS, due to the volume and complexity of the subject matter, and the

ongoing meaningful discussions that the Coalition has been conducting, it is now

necessary to request an extension of sixty (60) days for the submission of said report;

now, therefore be it,

 

RESOLVED, that the Ulster County Coalition Against Narcotics is hereby

authorized a sixty (60) day extension to September 15, 2015 to report its findings and

recommendations to the Ulster County Legislature at the regularly scheduled meeting

to be held on Tuesday, September 15, 2015 at 7:00 PM in the Legislative Chambers,
