Swish, Jay, Earth—Items on the Agenda for City Council Wednesday – March 24, 2010

The city council's agenda for March 24, 2010 is out. See you at 8pm in the Council Room at Rye City Hall or on Cablevision Channel 75 and Verizon Channel 39. We'll also see you on the Internet (next day) at http://rye.peg.tv.

Note there will be an executive session immediately preceding the council meeting at 7:30pm to discuss litigation. Let's check the batting order and highlights from the 18 agenda items.

  • Swish. Recognition of Rye Recreation All Star Basketball Team.
  • Open Mic. Residents may be heard who have matters to discuss that do not appear on the agenda. Always a crowd pleaser…
  • The MMR. Mayor’s Management Report including Consultant’s Report on Pedestrian Safety Improvements at Oakland Beach Avenue; Financial Summary Recap of March 15th presentation by City Comptroller; Commission Update from the Cable and Communication Committee.
  • Stop Whining. Consideration to set a Public Hearing to change the City of Rye Zoning Code to include “child-care facilities” as a use in the B-1 District.
  • Leverage. Resolution authorizing the issuance of $3,534,000 serial bonds ($1,372,000 new bonds,
    $2,080,000 previously authorized but unissued bonds, and $82,000 previously authorized
    but unissued debt) of the City of Rye, Westchester County, New York.
  • Jay. Consideration of Resolution in support of the Jay Heritage property.
  • Earth. Consideration of Resolution to participate in Earth Hour on March 27, 2010 when cities
    across the world will turn off their lights for an hour at 8:30 p.m.
  • Black top. Bid Award for Street Materials (Bid #1-10).
    Roll Call.

The next regular meeting of the City Council will be held on Wednesday, April 7, 2010.


  1. I think people should take a look at the rerun of last night’s council session. The comptroller just told the council and the taxpayers that we’re in a significant cash crunch. Lots of promised funds (like the Bird House) have not arrived meanwhile big obligations (like the former CVS building) are coming due. Cash on the barrelhead (not soft talk) is required. Transparency can be both invigorating and nerve wracking.

    On the plus side, Councilman Sack continues to press for a public vote on city council term limits. How I wonder will our formerly beloved local patronage swamp ever be able to reclaim its life-giving source of nutrients?

    Could the cash crash and the dried up patronage be linked? If so, I’m mighty proud of our newly configured council.
