This budget is a huge win for the people of Ulster County. Property taxes are going down for the first time in over a decade. And with this budget we have taken great strides toward protecting the environment, supporting public safety and streamlining County government. We’ve cut $3.6 million in spending and continue to make the types of difficult decisions Ulster County families make every single day. I want to congratulate the County Legislators for their hard work and partnership in resolving many of the major issues that have confronted Ulster County government for decades.

Kingston, NY – According to Mark Klotz, New York State Department of Environmental Conservation’s (NYS DEC) Director of the Division of Water, the New York City Department of Environmental Protection (NYC DEP) plans to install a new siphon at the Gilboa Dam that will replace those used during the reconstruction work on the dam that were damaged during Hurricane Irene, and dismantled. To lower the Schoharie Reservoir, NYC DEP intends to transfer water from the Schoharie Reservoir, through the Shandaken Tunnel to the Upper Esopus Creek and eventually into the Ashokan Reservoir.
