Fulton County board to meet Monday

JOHNSTOWN — The Fulton County Board of Supervisors will conduct two public hearings as part of its monthly meeting starting at 1 p.m. Monday at the County Office Building.

Supervisors will be meeting in person in the Supervisor’s Chambers, but the meeting will be livestreamed to the public through the county website.

The board will conduct a public hearing at 1:30 p.m. to receive comments on the proposed Fulton County Police Reform and Reinvention Plan.

The plan is being done in accordance with an executive order by Gov, Andrew Cuomo and must be submitted to the state by April 1.

Supervisors will vote later in the session on the plan.

Supervisors will also conduct a public hearing at 2 p.m. to receive comments on the county’s Community Development Block Grant application establishing a Microenterprise Grant Program.

The board will vote during regular action on the grant.

The board also is poised to hear updates from standing committees, reports of special committees, and the monthly report from Chairman Jack Callery.

A proclamation is on the agenda that will declare the week of April 18-24 as Crime Victims Rights Week in Fulton County.

In regular action, the board is scheduled to consider approval of numerous resolutions, including one to authorized acceptance of Office of Temporary and Disability Assistance program funds to assist the county Department of Social Services.

In the public safety area, supervisors are slated to consider approval of eight resolutions, including one calling on the state Legislature to curtail Cuomo’s emergency powers authority.

Another resolution calls for authorizing acceptance of a 2021-23 New York State Indigent Legal Services Grant to be distributed to the office of county Public Defender Roger Paul.

The board will mull a use permit for the Visitor’s Center on Routes 29 and 30 in Vail Mills.

Approval of user agreements between the county Board of Elections and local school districts to use county voting machines also is on Monday’s agenda.

The board will consider a proposed resolution to sell tax-foreclosed property at 59 Bloomingdale Ave., Gloversville, to an adjacent property owner.
