MY TAKE – Meriden’s efforts regarding their transit-oriented district.

The Burdelski foresees “real milestones” in 5-10 years for downtown Meriden’s transit-oriented quest article was recently published in the Record Journal.  

The Wallingford link to this is the fact that Meriden is deeply into this and Wallingford is not.

It is more likely than not we will be looking back twenty years from now at this point in time and saying "this was the point in time when the pendulum fully began swinging" where Wallingford began to fully be left behind.

My opinion.

We'll know in the fullness of time.

And I hope I am wrong.

The overtaxing of Wallingford

Taxing considerations was printed today in the Record Journal – in it Mike Brodinsky outlined many points regarding our budgeting processes. It is a comprehensive read and I recommend it to everyone.  

Our current budget (from this past May) already included $4.3 million dollars from the rainy day fund; when the end of year audit was completed, the budget balance for the fiscal year 2013 was $7,388,000 to the positive. This is because the town took in $3,587,000 more than planned (as I stated during the budget cycle we are TOO conservative with our income projection numbers) and we spent $3,801,000 less than planned (and that is simply credit where credit is due - it doesn't make sense to spend more than you need to).

In May of 2013 I pressed that “TOO conservative with our income projection numbers” issue - MY TAKE - Wallingford budget passes with additional cuts 

We could have fully funded EVERYTHING and STILL had money left over because we sandbag our revenue numbers to make an excessive cushion. We over estimate expenses as shown above (and agreeably, that is a harder target to hit).

Yes - it is better than running into the red but when these monies are only shuffled around it is bad for the taxpayer.

That $4.3 million dollars moved into this current budget will be slid back into the general fund and not spent and then it will be infused into the new budget and likely not spent as well.

The current budget was adopted at $147.4 million dollars – an increase of 4.3 percent on the full budget this upcoming May totals a new budget of $153.4 million; an increase of $6,000,000. The total tax bill for the town CAN go up by that amount and there SHOULD be no tax increases for that to the taxpayers because we are sitting on $7,388,000 to the positive from this year (with about $900,000 or so being held back for future revaluations.)

What is more likely is the scenario that was laid out in the paper in the Wallingford audit shows healthy revenue article - $2.16 million will be added to the town’s general fund, which grows to $24,804,000. Of that balance, $6,471,000 remains unappropriated. $11,794,000 — is retained to show creditors the town is well-off financially.

 

From the City and towns differ in how to handle audits article:

Cheshire - Total Budget: $98.7 million Surplus: $1 million Unassigned Fund Balance: $9.4 million Credit Rating: AAA (Fitch) Aa1 (Moody’s)

Wallingford - Total Budget: $145.1 million Surplus: $2.1 million Unassigned Fund Balance: $18.1 million Credit Rating: Aaa (Moody’s)

Aaa - An obligor has EXTREMELY STRONG capacity to meet its financial commitments. – Wallingford

Aa1, - An obligor has VERY STRONG capacity to meet its financial commitments. It differs from the highest rated obligors only in small degree.- Cheshire

Aa2 and Aa3 also fall into that “An obligor has VERY STRONG capacity to meet its financial commitments. It differs from the highest rated obligors only in small degree” bucket – SOURCE.

I will remind our taxpayers of just one additional thing – when your tax situation changes, you sell your business (and no longer pay those taxes), downsize your home or move away you are never going to get a refund on these excess taxes you are paying right now. You will never see an increase or added service for the dollars you paid to the town.

It is impossible to hit the budget target on the nose but as I pointed out last year, as a freshman councilor versus as 30 year sitting mayor, we fudge the numbers way too much.

This is nothing short of being over taxed year after year.

There are a lot of numbers in this article – let me summarize for you.

If Wallingford’s total tax bill this budget season goes up less than 4.3 percent on the full budget for a new budget of $153.4 million AND our tax bills go up then the shell game is getting played again and you are being overtaxed.

See you in April at the budget hearings.

With all of the thank you letters formally mailed out, I wanted to also post my thanks online for the end of 2013

image

December 29, 2013

With the election over and the holiday season coming to a close, I wanted to take this time to thank you so kindly for your support of my campaign for Mayor of Wallingford which culminated last month.

While it is unfortunate that the goal of winning the election was not reached, it does not diminish the hard work and support that I received from you during the campaign. We accomplished things this past year that haven’t been done in the past 20 years – this cannot be underscored enough. It was a campaign for “the record books” and I am humbled and honored that you were a part of it with me.

I still fully believe that Wallingford’s best days are ahead of us; they will simply develop differently than the vision we all shared.
I have the honor to have served as a Wallingford Town Councilor for this past two year term and with my final meeting now past I leave those duties and tasks to those nine that were chosen by the electorate on Election Day. They will have the direct charge of fighting for a better Wallingford and they will be responsible to figure out the ways to make the changes that are needed to make our town an even better place to live, work, and play, to make it an even better place to raise a family, start and grow a business, and retire.

All of us that are concerned with this as well, as voters, residents, and taxpayers, MUST be present to keep them on OUR task of delivering that future.

While I may be out of office there are still many things to be done. I do not need a chair “up there” to bring these things to fruition; it would be easier but it can still be done. I will spend some time thinking outside the box on how to do just that. I hope that as those times come you can once again support those efforts, in whatever fashion they are, to help move Wallingford forward.

Once again, I am humbled by the help, support, and encouragement that I received; it was an experience that I will never forget.

With deepest gratitude,
Jason Zandri

Follow up from public hearing regarding the Title V permit for Covanta

On December 11 there was a public hearing about the Title V permit for Covanta.

The meeting was recorded and is playing on WPAA but it is also on demand at WPAA. Please go to the link and go to video on demand which is located on top of the screen. The video is on page two.
http://www.wpaa.tv/#

The full video is a little over two hours so some of the important issues discussed were:

1.The entire plant is NOT tested every year but on a rotational basis so each stack is tested once every three years.

2. Positive burn and fires which happen are fires where the emissions leave the plant before they are scrubbed so unknown pollutants are affecting the area.

3. There have been no water tests of Dioxin in approximately twenty years. This means our public drinking water and waterways such as Wharton Brook State Park which people fish and swim in have not been tested for Dioxins.

There is a public comment period until December 30 2013.
I would hope that you would watch the video and share your concerns with EPA and DEEP. Lakiesha Christopher (Connecticut DEEP) is the contact below is her e-mail address.

DEEP Best Management Practices for Disposal of Snow Accumulations from Roadways and Parking Lots

A letter has been sent to Henry McCully and Mayor Dickinson’s Office regarding snow removal over all in town and the use of the Garden Road property – you can follow this link to read it.

Below are the available DEEP Best Management Practices for Disposal of Snow Accumulations from Roadways and Parking Lots.

Connecticut Department of Energy & Environmental Protection

Best Management Practices for Disposal of Snow Accumulations from Roadways and Parking Lots

Purpose: These guidelines have been developed to clarify DEEP recommendations to state and municipal officials, and others regarding the removal and disposal of snow accumulations from roadways and parking lots. For purposes of this guidance snow accumulations refers to snow banks and snowpiles that are removed by front-end loader or by loading on trucks for disposal. This guidance does not apply to normal snow plowing operations that must, inevitably, discharge some snow into wetlands and watercourses.

Implementation: While following these guidelines does not constitute a permit or authorization, the Department recognizes there is a considerable need for flexibility in implementation of this policy, particularly in emergency situations. There is no intent to interfere with snow plowing operations. Where trucking and snow dumping operations are undertaken the Department recommends these guidelines be followed.

Problem: Current road maintenance activities include removal of snow accumulations from bridges, roads and parking areas for the purpose of providing more space for subsequent snow storms and for ease of travel and parking. Sometimes this snow is moved by truck or with a front-end loader and deposited directly into surface waters of the state including streams, wetlands and Long Island Sound. This practice is not recommended due to the presence of dirt, salt, litter and other debris, which are routinely mixed in the accumulated snow.

Under normal conditions of snowmelt, the majority of these contaminants remains on or next to the paved surface or may be captured in stormwater catch basins. These contaminants can then be swept from streets and bridges or vacuumed from catch basin sumps. However, when accumulated snow is collected and dumped into surface waters, this mixture of snow, sand and debris may smother aquatic life in the bottom of streams and rivers and degrade the aesthetics of the surface water with silt plumes and litter. Large quantities of snow (and the sand and debris) may also cause blockage of storm drainage systems, resulting in increased chance for localized flooding.

Recommended Management Practice: Snow accumulations removed from roadways, bridges, and parking lots should be placed in upland areas only, where sand and other debris will remain after snowmelt for later removal. Care must be exercised not to deposit snow in the following areas:

  • freshwater or tidal wetlands or in areas immediately adjacent to such areas where sand and debris may be flushed during rainstorms;
  • on top of storm drain catch basins;
  • in storm drainage swales;
  • on stream or river banks which slope toward the water, where sand and debris can get into the watercourse; and
  • in areas immediately adjacent (within at least 100 feet) of private or public drinking water well supplies (due to the possible presence of road salt).

For Governmental Entities: In normal winter conditions, governmental entities should follow the recommended management practices outlined above. In extraordinary winter conditions, the commissioner may, upon public notification, offer governmental entities the flexibility of limited in-water disposal. When such flexibility is offered, governmental entities who have determined that extraordinary circumstances exist where all upland, land-based disposal options have been fully exhausted (i.e., disposal capacity is not available) and snow needs to be removed to meet public safety demands (i.e., clear access ways for police, emergency medical and fire responders), may use certain waterways for snow disposal in accordance with the following conditions:

  • Upland storage and disposal of snow (i.e., athletic fields, parks and other flat, open-field sites) and other snow management methods (i.e., snow melting equipment) must be the first alternatives explored and exhausted. Environmentally sensitive areas must be avoided;
  • This guidance applies only to snow and ice which is not visibly contaminated with material other than salt and sand from road clearing activities;
  • For coastal communities, preference should be given to snow disposal in salt water where available;
  • Disposal in rivers or streams must be limited to those water bodies that have adequate flow and mixing and are not prone to ice jams;
  • The disposal must occur only in open water in areas that will not interfere with navigation;
  • Disposal must be conducted in a manner so as to prevent ice dam formation or damage to bridges, docks or other structures;
  • Disposal in ponds and lakes is discouraged;
  • There shall be no disposal in coastal or freshwater wetlands, eelgrass beds, vegetated shallows, vernal pools, shellfish beds mudflats, public water supply reservoirs and their tributaries, or others areas designated as being environmentally sensitive;
  • The activity must comply with local laws and requirements;
  • Precautions must be taken to avoid shoreline or stream bank damage or erosion from truck/equipment activity; and
  • Governmental entities must notify the Department by email (address email to kevin.sowa@ct.gov) prior to disposing of snow and ice in waterways or, if advance notification is not possible, then the Department must be contacted as soon as possible after snow disposal has begun.

Notification: Notification can be made by addressing an email to Kevin Sowa at: kevin.sowa@ct.gov. The notification must include the following: (1) the name of the governmental entity making the notification; (2) contact information for the governmental entity including name, email address and phone number; (3) the street address where the snow disposal activity will occur; (4) the name of the waterbody where the snow will be disposed; (5) the estimated quantity of snow to be disposed; (6) the dates during which the disposal activity will occur; and (7) a statement that the governmental entity has exhausted all disposal alternatives and snow management methods and will make best efforts to adhere to these snow disposal guidelines.

Secretary Merrill Releases Turnout Figures from 2013 Municipal Elections

Statewide Voter Turnout Figure 31.43%; Bridgewater Reported Highest Turnout at 77.39%, Hartford Lowest at 5.21%

Hartford: Secretary of the State Denise Merrill today released voter turnout numbers from the 2013 Municipal Elections which showed that overall, the statewide voter turnout among registered voters in Connecticut was 31.43%.  The town with the highest voter turnout for the municipal offices was Bridgewater, where 77.39% of registered voters cast ballots.  The municipality with the lowest voter turnout was Hartford, where only 5.21% of registered voters cast ballots.  A complete listing of turnout among towns that held elections on November 5, 2013 follows at the end of this news release. 

“Municipal elections usually have lower turnout figures than state or Presidential elections, even though the impact of the decisions made by those elected to local government is huge in the community,” said Secretary Merrill, Connecticut’s chief elections official.  “Many races were decided by just a handful of votes, and we had a number of recounts as a result, which shows once again how important it is to do your civic duty and cast a ballot.  I also want to praise our local election officials for accommodating all of the new voters in Connecticut who used their new right to register and vote on Election Day.  From everything we are hearing Election Day registration went very smoothly in 2013, and we look forward to even more voters being welcomed into the democratic process next year.”

The following reflects numbers reported to the Secretary of the State’s Office.  The column labeled (AB) represents the number of Absentee Ballots counted on Election Day.  The column labeled (EDR) represents the number of Election Day Registration ballots counted.
