SUFFOLK COUNTY

PROPOSITION TWO:

RESOLUTION NO. 547-2020, “A Charter Law to Transfer Excess Funds in the Sewer Assessment Stabilization Reserve Fund to the Suffolk County Taxpayer Trust Fund and to Eliminate the Requirement that Interfund Transfers Be Made from the General Fund to the Sewer Assessment Stabilization Fund.”

 

Shall Resolution NO. 547-2020 be approved?

YES ⃝        NO ⃝

 

Editor’s Note: Here are the answers to a few questions I posed to the office of SC Legislator Sarah S. Anker for which I thank them for their responses:

Q-CDR: Are the referenced “Sewer Assessment Stabilization Reserve Fund” and the “Sewer Assessment Stabilization Fund” two separate funds and what are their specific purposes?

A-SSA: “It is the same fund just referred to by both names- no one could tell me why.  The fund is used to stabilize sewer rates.”

 

Q-CDR: What constitutes “excess funds” in the Sewer Assessment Stabilization Reserve Fund?
A-SSA: Funds beyond what is needed to fulfill the obligations of the fund.”

 

Q-CDR: What exactly is the Suffolk County Taxpayer Trust Fund?
A-SSA: “It is a fund to help stabilize county general property taxes.”

 

Q-CDR: What exactly is the “requirement” that Interfund Transfers be made from the General Fund to the Sewer Assessment Stabilization Fund?

A-SSA: “Transfers to sewer stabilization reserve fund are made to repay the prior loan from the fund.”

 

NOTE: The narrative and Resolution provided by Suffolk County to the Committee on Environmental Quality in reference to this proposal is available here.  

"A Little Burned Biscuit Never Hurt Anyone."

“When I was a kid, my Mom liked to make breakfast food for dinner every now and then. I remember one night in particular when she had made breakfast after a long, hard day at work. On that evening so long ago, my Mom placed a plate of eggs, sausage and extremely burned biscuits in front of my dad. I remember waiting to see if anyone noticed!” …read more
