back door pickup update


The Town Board approved the resolution posted below authorizing back door pickup of garbage once a week for $300 a year. Exemptions for individuals (households) who are disabled and whose income is below $36,000 a year.
We prefer not to provide the service. We are outreaching to private carters and will be inviting them to offer residents the service at reduced costs/more frequency.
I have asked the Town Attorney to take a look at the town code. It is possible that the Town Board may have to amend our code to authorize private carters to provide the service.
We also may wish to require private carters to start the service after 7 AM. Some private carter companies start their day earlier than government (at 6 AM) and most residents would not like to hear the sounds of garbage trucks in their neighborhood so early in the morning.
We will be discussing this on Tuesday--at our work session.

Look who Paul wants to pick up our garbage:



The Feds Say That Galante Diverted Millions from Trash Businesses
Friends of ours: Matthew "Matty the Horse" Ianniello, Genovese Crime Family
Friends of mine: James Galante, David Magel

A Danbury trash magnate arrested in a Mafia case in June diverted millions of dollars from his businesses to his minor league hockey team, no show jobs, race cars and questionable stockholder repayments, federal authorities said Thursday.

James Galante, whose businesses handle about 80 percent of southwestern Connecticut's garbage, carved out exclusive routes for his companies and paid Genovese crime family boss Matthew "Matty the Horse" Ianniello $120,000 a year for mob muscle to enforce his territories, authorities said. That meant higher prices for businesses and homeowners, authorities said.

Galante and Ianniello were among 29 people arrested in connection with the alleged scheme. In a related development Thursday, another trash hauler became the first defendant in the case to plead guilty.

Galante's defense attorneys challenged a court order putting federal marshals in charge of his businesses, saying they were ruining the businesses. But federal authorities said they had improved the cash flow by stopping diversions that amounted to more than $4 million last year. They also said the businesses are now facing competition.

"If any 'blame' is to be assigned for the changes wrought by these incidents, it lies squarely on the shoulders of the defendants, who decided many years ago to operate the 25 companies as an illegal bid-rigging and price-fixing cartel," prosecutors wrote.

A hearing is planned Tuesday on the challenge to the federal monitoring. "Our position is by their own admission they're running it into the ground," said Hugh Keefe, Galante's attorney. "You took a guy's business away from him and turned it over to a bunch of incompetents."

Keefe said the reported diversions will be dealt with during the trial. "Even if that was true, the business itself was thriving up until the day the feds decided they knew more about running a trash business than Jimmy Galante."

Authorities said they were monitoring the businesses, not taking them over, and denied they intended to sell the businesses. Galante owns the Danbury Trashers team of the United Hockey League. The team was disbanded after Galante's arrest in June.

Meanwhile, the trash hauler who admitted his involvement in the scheme Thursday, David Magel, 33, of Baldwin Place, N.Y., pleaded guilty to a racketeering charge in U.S. District Court in New Haven. Magel is general manager of CRP Carting in Elmsford, N.Y.

Prosecutors said the scheme was enforced by extortion and threats, and participants sought to operate it in eastern New York. Magel met with several other members of the enterprise, two of whom were associated with an unidentified Connecticut-based trash carting company, at a diner in Mt. Kisco, N.Y., in 2004, authorities said.

After the meeting, Magel engaged in a series of telephone calls with other members of the enterprise to implement the scheme, prosecutors said. On Dec. 21, 2004, investigators intercepted one conversation between Magel and two members affiliated with the Connecticut carting company during which Magel agreed to provide inflated quotes to customers of the other participants in the conspiracy, authorities said.

"I'm shootin' for the ... gusto here," Magel said in the conversation. Magel faces up to 20 years in prison and a $250,000 fine when he is sentenced Oct. 25.

Keefe said he was not sure if Magel's guilty plea would affect Galante. Authorities would not comment on whether Magel was cooperating against the other defendants.

Paul- you have lost your mind. 13,000 in taxes and you want another 300 for back door pick up. I'm going to let my garbage build up and bring it to your back door. Oh wait-gaited community..I forgot. All of you on that board are living in a fantasy world. You are a bunch of idiots running this town into the ground! Good job!

Well here you go again getting yourself in more trouble.

Who the hell do you think you are telling me that i have to have a private garbage company pick up my up garbage.

You should be investigated because you are definetly showing ties to the mafia.

Why should I have strange people come to my house to pick up my garbage while I pay for this service in my yearly taxes.

There is only one update for back door pickup and that is to reinstate the service that we had all these years.

What will you be taking away from us next.
Will you be charging us to travel on the roadways so you will have enough money to fill the potholes and put back all the so called curbs that have been broken due to snow plowing.
Will you be charging us for having more than one car in our driveways.
will you be charging us for the air we breathe.
Paul I only have two words for you and the board and it aint happy birthday.

And many of us thought that you were a fine jewish man what a mistake.There is no difference between you and Madoff.
He stole money and you stole our services and a good way of life by giving our hard earned money to just one area that has been crying poverty for the past eighteen years.
You made many cuts in the unincorpoarated area but tell me what cuts has the center made NONE.
You cut our services and granted the money to the center.
Has the housing authority paid the money over five hundred thousand dollars NO.
Don't go after them but hit the people that pay high taxes .
Your mentality is getting to a point of that worse than a child.

Why do you have after thoughts about the law that Regula,you and the board passed .
Did the county or state officials tell you to reconsider.
Well we await your answer as to why there will be an update.
The complaints did reach the officials and we do hope that they will do the right thing for the residents of Greenburgh

Feiner is not endorsing any private company-- he is going to offer residents a list of competing companies to choose from.

hal samis said...

What's a blogger to do?
Especially when he assumes that whenever the water gets too hot on a topic, the Supervisor creates a new entry on the same topic so as to steer traffic away from the danger zone.

Of course he could update the existing topic by ADDING his comments or new information there but that's not going to solve his problem. On the other hand, I, and others who have made the effort to respond to the topic and its collected replies can do this:
Bring over from the original topic, what the Supervisor would rather be left unsaid and UNSEEN. Anonymous boos and hisses don't trouble him but when there is a well-reasoned and informative message, then he does what he does best -- hide.

And, that is why the catch-all topic, The Week of...keeps appearing and disappering with certainty.

From the original backdoor pick-up post.

"Sent to the Town Clerk who started a policy last year of allowing residents to submit questions to the Town Board or Town Departments and these questions would be answered at the Town Board meeting.

It actually happened for about two meetings. Then the tinkering began. The first time the submitted questions were answered AHEAD of 3 minute comment. When the Town Board realized that the Public could then respond to the answers during the following Public Comment, the Town Board then shifted the answer period to after the Public Comment; this meant that the answers would be the "last word" and that the Town Board could create any fiction -- a skill set that Mr. Sheehan and Ms Brown were quick to exploit.

In those days of yore, there was always the expectation that the injustice could be corrected in the 5 minute Public Comment held at the end of the meeting. The last 5 minute comment period was April 9 2008. Thereafter, the Town Board always managed to load up the front of the meeting with Police promotions (could be held at the Police department) citizen awards, Tappan Zee Bridge reports, etc....anything that would eat up the clock and freeze out the Public from speaking for 5 minutes. This was accompanied by an "interpretation" by Town Attorney Tim Lewis that at Public Hearings, the Public was limited to two 5 minute periods.
The latest timewaster gimmick is using the Xposure children for political purposes -- to shield the Town Board and take up the time for business at the meeting. It matters not that Town Board meetings take place during the school week and that keeping the kids up to "perform" on cue is a higher purpose than getting to bed early or, gasp, even staying at home to study.

Now we are at the most audacious phase. The questions submitted are not even answered after 3 minute comment is over. The newest script revisions call for the Town Clerk to ask the Town Supervisor after the public has spoken: Would it please the Town Board to answer the questions (previously submitted questions and questions raised during 3 minute Public Comment) now and the Supervisor shoots back, "we'll do it at the end of the meeting". Of course, were the questions to be answered, at the end of the meeting, there are few residents remaining in Town Hall. But that's not a problem because Feiner ignores the Town Clerk at the end of meeting and adjourns the meeting without allowing the answer period. And that's how your Town Board deals with the Public or its taxpayers and voters.

And, since Mr. Regula has come up on this blog and it appears that his anonymous detractors won't be attending the next Town Board meeting for his going away homage (another diversion to eat up the clock), here's just the questions I submitted to the Town Clerk (and also read aloud at the meeting during my 3 minutes) concerning Mr. Regula's return engagement.

Sent to the Town Clerk, cc Town Board.

"More for your ever popular series of questions to be answered at Town Board meetings.
These for whoever is overseeing the employment of Mr. Regula and Mr. Nana.

WHO HAS THE RESPOSIBILITY, THE ASSUMPTION BEING THAT THE TOWN BOARD DOES NOT VOTE BEFORE CALLING

1) Who determines whether Mr. Regula or Mr. Nana are to be "activated"?

2) Who determines whether either or both should be called?

ON WHAT BASIS DOES THE DECISION MAKER DECIDE, THE RESOLUTION ONLY STATES THE TERMS OF HIS EMPLOYMENT AND I WOULD HOPE THAT THE TOWN BOARD HAS AGREED ON SOME FORMALIZED GUIDELINES

3) What are the reasons whether either or both should be called? i.e. in the case of snow, 2 inches? 5 inches? or in the case of garbage pick-up, a driver is out sick?

4) If Mr. Regula is called, does his contract allow him to charge the Town portal to portal pay @ $90 per hour?"

Let me add now to the above: who is there to verify his hourly claims?

Mr. Regula, of course, was the overburdened head of DPW who was so "threatened" by the notion that he would get fired were he to turn down what would normally be a full-time job (overseeing a $20 million library construction project) and, that his "spontaneous" retirement last year would be threatened, must have really wanted to take on this job. A job which meant that, he as the Town's only point man was in the unique position to sign off and approve the work done (or not done, who would be the wiser), to approve the change orders for their ratification by a Town Board which was clueless to what they were voting on (if it's ok with Al...) and thus we have a Town Board voting to approve the Town paying TWICE for curbs that clearly were the fault of the contractor; a delay claim resulting in "assumed" higher cost ($48,000) for asphalt and now the Town is facing a notice of delay claim for $240,000 (that the Town has to win because there is no money remining in the Library construction budget to pay it). Having already acknowledged the delay in the approved change order, on what basis do YOU think the Town can defend against this outstanding delay claim.

Yes, Mr. Regula might have seen opportunity in being the point man. We should all express our gratitude to him at the Town Board's ceremony to express their official thanks. Hopefully, he won't be billing for his attendance.

Oh, by the way, the Library isn't finished; there is a lengthy list of work to be done (if the Town Board can find someone to ask for it -- the problem being that there's no one to ask) and this work will be supervised by _________? Your guess is as good as mine; that's another unanswered question. Don't say the Construction Manager, Triton, who managed to earn out an extra $300,000 OVER their OWN original estimate of $612,000 for their services. But like Mr. Regula, they're off the job since 12/31/08.

Maybe without them, all's well that ends without their valued assistance. Even the gravy train has a last stop.

among other things condemn in the strongest terms the libelous charge equating mr feiner with the dictator of nazi germany.

rantings of this nature have no place here or anywhere.

bloggers who post such rubbish do tremendous damage to the political process and civil society by calling the town supervisor the equal of a pathological mass murderer who destroyed among other things european jewry.

whoever wrote this needs help and a history lesson.

there certainly can be disagreement with the board's policies. but there can be no disagreement that to call a town board member "hitler" is wrong.

lets stop the hate speech.

9:18 - "fine jewish man"? is that what becomes of "nice jewish boys"? gevalt!

hal samis said...

Dear 5:46,

You've got me over a barrel. On one hand using Hitler as the comparison is a little over the top.

On the other hand, which dictator is on your "ok to use" list.

Currently, Feiner and his Town Board have conspired to "murder" public comment at Town Board meetings.

Not content to merely limit speaking time, they are trying to push it back later and later in the meeting and to escape the "commitment" they made to allow 5 minutes for additional comment at the end of the meeting.

Allowing 3 minute comment is not a legal requirement but the Town Board would be foolish to eliminate a long standing tradition which serves them by saying that their's is an open government that listens to our residents.

So what they have discovered is that they can use the beginning of the meeting as a launch pad to provide public service announcements, promotion ceremonies, photo ops, etc: the more the merrier -- at least while the clock is ticking away toward the 11:00 goal.

Witness the second appearance of the Xposure kids who are shamelessly paraded in public for what purpose? What the viewer sees is an opportunity for Sonja Brown to introduce the TDYCC Director who introduces the Xposure Director who introduces the teacher who introduces the kids who are so proud to explain that they are tracking stocks. Apart from the real world stock market crisis with large real dollar losses affecting real people, this Xposure "make believe world" with fractional shares (albeit at the low prices of today, the downside is slight) the kid who has been tracking Apple is no different than the race track tout who "knows" the stats of how a horse has run in the past. Cost to TAXPAYERS for this entree to the world of speculation (get those 8 year olds hooked early) around $170,000. Is this really what the Town of Greenburgh needs to be sponsoring? So let's look forward to seeing Xposure again and again. Let's have these kids perform stupid pet tricks; keep them out late and not at home studying. All for the purpose of entertainment and a photo op.

Last night I learned that Feiner has approached the Library to have a monthly segment at the Town Board meeting to alert residents to what's going on at the Library. Three birds with one shot: Library gets to crow; Feiner positions himself as the Library's best friend and it will take up more time. Only the nitpickers to complain.

So, what is there about this strategy that is not what a clever, modern dictator would do?
You don't need soldiers to capture and control thought -- you just need to remove their access to their audience -- other residents.
Let them use a soapbox while the Town Board can use the dais, the airwaves and the Town's internet mailing list. That's a level playing field isn't it. 1776 freedoms matched against the new millennium's technology. And live from Greenburgh, the Town Board, by their election, has the right to appear center stage and push dissent off to the side, off camera, speak unlimited and have the first, the second, the third and the last word. But this is not the open government that Feiner preaches. He and the Board should not be allowed cake for preaching and cake to chew.
If he wants to eliminate the public from his show, then let him do so. What is irksome is promoting that he listens to the public but then tries and succeeds in finding new ways to marginalize and contain that input.

I,a Jew, am not offended by any reminder of Hitler. I don't go out of my way to resurrect his atrocities but the world is witness to a few cut from the same cloth and still in business. They thrive isolated and apart without the cover of a World War. Wasn't it our own Town Board that found it necessary to remind residents and the President and the UN of Darfur?

So, pretending to be shocked and offended is really more of the shoot the messenger and not deal with crimes school of concern. I allow that probably your intention was not to be part of that club but wouldn't it be more productive to concentrate on the crimes rather than the prose that seeks to draw attention to them.

If I have to refer to the Town Board (clearly the bottom of the barrel through the implementation of just five votes), I would and do view them as the forerunners of fascism, a way of enslaving people through a slower application of mind creep until one day the public wakes up and discover that while free to walk around and earn money to pay the taxes that support their masters, they no longer have any rights regarding how they are governed.

The flies have found a way to conquer the flypaper.

plain silly said...

hal - your complaint is misplaced.

the fault lies with the polity (and perhaps the party of which you are a district leader) that elects the 5 town board members who run the place like the village in the prisoner series, that doesnt get involved, that doesnt build bridges, that doesnt care for anyone else outside their little fiefdom.

in feinerstan the courts are still open. in fact, a case against mr feiner and the town was just heard this week in albany.

or perhaps the good folk of greenburgh (outside the ecc) are basically happy with the status quo.

if you think any crimes have been committed, take it to the district attorney's office.

as you know, several complaints have been filed against the town with the state comptroller's office with great sucess (westhelp, sewer district).

to call greenburgh a dictatorship is laughable. what dictator puts work sessions online? perhaps you should spend some time living under a true dictator like mugabe before you toss around words like that so easily.

you are far better than this. i would expect such nonsense from palin. not samis.

I have become increasingly embarrassed to call Greenburgh my hometown. We are in desperate need a management professional at the helm, someone with executive leadership experience who can transition us out of all the mess that Mr. Feiner has chosen to create over the years. Is impeachment a possibility? I'm asking this as a serious question. The man is just not a competent manager.

January 16 1:38,

So you made it through the fourth chapter of the "Dummy's Guide to Propoganda and Disinformation".

You know, the chapter where the writer poses as a friend or ally of the position or (me) but adds that extra bit of seasoning which really turns out to be advocacy for the opposition.

Like you don't think that we have a dictatorship here in Greenburgh because the work sessions are televised. If that is your proof, then how come what happens at the Town Board meeting is not consistent with what happened at the work session. How come there is often a completely new version of what was presented just the day before? When did the changes occur? Where did the changes occur? The Directors Guild of America (DGA) recognizes a job title: Script Supervisor. Does NYS also have a line item for this and where is it in the Town budget?

And reviewing Chapter two, you do remember the suggestion to attribute words to the subject: words that were not actually written. Thus when you write that
" to call greenburgh a dictatorship is laughable " perhaps you should go back to the first chapter, where it says 'don't try to fool people when they can easily verify your lie' because readers need only scroll up to see that I charge the Town Board with being "the forerunners to fascism" on a post which began by commenting on an earlier anonymous posting which likened Feiner to Hitler.

If you can't beat me with my own words, I guess you need to substitute your own and call them mine. How about eliminating the middle man and just play with yourself.

As for Mr. Regula, he's out of here in three months after the Town Board wastes more of YOUR and other resident's tax dollars. It doesn't come from my pocket. All I can do is try and point taxpayers
in the right direction and if THEY want to pursue justice, they can find the right means of sanction.
In the meanwhile, pay the money he wasted, pay him his consultant's fee and just sit back and think about the possibility that you paid him a third time.

And as for being "far better than this", I have x-ray vision and can spot the knife your are hiding behind your bock. Better there than in than in mine.

Anonymous said...

The sewer guy spoke at the town meeting. Has anyone looked at his website?? He has an e-mail from Regula that shows that the town has kept money that should have been given back to the public. I'm sure that if Regula screwed the town on sewers, he is screwing us on garbage as well.
