J i h The Washington county board of supervisors has ,appealed to Governor Rockefeller to have state agencies take what steps are necessary so that Niagara Mohawk Power corporation can proceed with construction of an atomic power 'plant iii Easton. The power company announced August 8 that it was terminat­ ing construction of its plant on the Hudson river because of de­ lays in getting' regulatory ap­ provals*. The supervisors, meeting last Thursday in Salem adopted, a resolution which called on the governor “to assign special state agencies to bring the state studies to fruition on a top pri­ ority basis so that the state re­ quirements can be met in order tkiat Niagara Mohawk can re­ turn tortile business of building the atomic power plant at Eas­ ton as promptly as possible.1’ The . resolution, copies of which—h&ve -been—sent. to. the governor, Senator Jacob Javits, Representative Carletcn J, King, Senator Ronald B. Stafford and Assemblyman Lawrence E. Cor- foett, states that the 4oard has found iR conference \With\the atomic energy commission in Washington, D. C., that no ob­ stacles iit obtaining a permit to build are in the way there ex­ cept state agency permission.\ It suggests that the intent in establishing the Hudson River Valley commission \was not to stifle of impede normal bona' fide private enterprise in this state,” and recommends that the objeitioits raised, by the com­ mission “ should be worK^d out by the proper state agencies without delay.” It cites Vwith regret*’ th e HRVC -press re­ lease v/hich applauded the an­ nouncement of termination of constipation the Easton site. \A g reeing that “all necessary precautions should be taken to insure the .safety-of the people Of=~theT_towi* of Easton, the county of 'Washington, the sur­ rounding counties,\ and that “ study ahd research are re- quired.to. make sure the water supply 'and. conservation mat­ ters ara adequately protected” the resolution points out that the delay in getting approvals has forced Niagara Mohawk to go elsewhere for power needed now or very soon. The resolution notes that Ni­ agara -Mohawk has •contracted with' the state power authority to sell its reactor that was to be- installed at Easton for the state power project in Oswego “to provide additional economi­ cal industrial power for central New Ifork industries, while the state seems to strangle private enterprise and its benefits to this area in the form of tax. revenue,\ and it also points out that “the state power authority is subsidizing with tax* money other needy industries in the state, • with which we do not quarrel, w h i 1 e this project which is healthy and self sup­ porting is being unduly de­ layed.” “This board,” the resolution says, “ has computed the loss of revenue tp the county real es­ tate taxes alone at approxi­ mately $1,300,000 annually once the plant is in operation, and: the loss of this revenue that would be coming by private en- terprise' into the county will creates a heavier burden on the’ already bulging cost of gov­ ernment he.re in Washington county while now no such re­ lief cgn .be counted on.’* Noting that there will be an>erage increase in the need fpr e'lec trie power, the resolution states, ‘‘somewhere in this capital dis­ trict a plant will have to be built to supply this demand. Effect on Tax Sfcructwre .; Dr. Charles E. Clark of- Cam­ bridge, chairman of the board of supervisors, p r e s i d e d . at Thursday’s meeting. Laurence Et Andrews,of G3ranv|il§, tChauv man of the finance committee, spoke of the effect of the can­ cellation of plans for the atomic plant on the economy of {he county. ' ^ ; He said that ior more than two years the Bnance commit­ tee had been anticipating a gradual increased real property revenue from tjie plant. “This gradual benefit is shown l a the assessment_ now on the* property ih E*ston, which . is’, over $ 200 , 000 ,” lie pointed out. “The former assessment on this whole property was $21,000. In ; other words, it is presently as­ sessed at 10 tiiaes the previous value.” \ “The loss in tax ‘revenue in Washington comity has been'> computed,” Mtv Andrews said,! “and the result rshows that* when j the plant was completed th e 1 county would obtain approxi-' roately $1,300,0«D in real prtfp-; erty taxes annually, tn other words, the ‘hoan'd anticipated a potential reduction in-’ the av­ real estate tax of $ 1 2 to S14 per thousand of assessed valuation.” The reduction in the town of Easton was esti­ mated at about $33 a thousand.

The board of supervisor?, meeting in Salem last Thursday, approved borrowing the $ 200 ,- 000 by budget notes, to mature on February 15, 1969, at an interest rate of not to exceed 5% p e r ' cent. This is the second year in a row that the county has had to resort to defieit spending to finance the medicaid program. In August of 1967 the board of supervisors approved borrowing $350,000 for medicaid for thfo remainder of that year. This was paid off from the money collected by real estate taxes in January of 1968. , This $ 200,000 is the county’s share of the anticipated amount needed to finance medicaid from now until the end of December. The total amount is $600,009, and the supervisors supplement­ ed the county budget 'by tfiis amount, estimating revenues of § 200,000 in state aid and $ 200 ,- OOD in federal aid for medicaid for the rest of the year.'
