   Another year has passed and it has been an eventful one at that. First, the "connecter highway" has been tabled for now. The State DOT has sent the Town a letter confirming that there is no funding for this project. Keep in mind though if the land annexation occurs the issue may raise its ugly head again.

   Secondly, we are continuing our process with the annexation of Town land into the City of Johnstown. After a long debate over which municipality should be the Lead Agency in the required State Environmental Quality Review (SEQR) process the State Department of Conservation (DEC) named the Town of Mohawk the Lead Agency. This meant that the Town would do the SEQR and as a result the Town determined that there were several environmental issues that needed to be reviewed. The Town offered the project sponsor, Fulton County, an opportunity to provide a draft scope for the now required Environmental Impact Statement (EIS). They did provide one that the Town, as Lead Agency, deemed unacceptable that required the Town to do a draft scope that would address all the issues and then passed it on to Fulton County. Fulton County, as project sponsor, is required by law to provide an EIS that is in compliance with the draft scope. This process will probably take six months to a year to complete and will then need to be approved by the Town as Lead Agent.

   2017 is an election year for most of the Town's elected officials. These positions are Town Supervisor, Town Clerk, Highway Superintendent, and 2 Council positions. I am looking forward to a great 2017. We have a budget in place that includes a purchase of a new dump truck, some updates in the Town offices and a ten percent reduction in the Town tax levy.

Edward M. Bishop Sr. Supervisor, Town of Mohawk
