Somerville Board of Well being Votes In opposition to COVID Vaccine Passport-Fashion System – CBS Boston

SOMERVILLE (CBS) — The city of Somerville will not adopt a COVID vaccine passport-style system used in Boston and other communities.

On Thursday evening, the city’s health department rejected the proposal by a score of two to one.

In a statement, Somerville Mayor Katjana Ballantyn said that while she disagreed with the committee’s decision, she respected the considerations that went into it.

“The key takeaway from last night’s hearing is that the board and the city agree that vaccination is critical to getting this virus under control.

The question for us is which tools we use to drive this goal forward. Of course, we had hoped that the Board would support the proposed requirement, but I respect their decision and their thoughtful consideration, so today we move on to the next effort. My focus remains fully on applying all the strategies at our disposal to deal with the pandemic.

Since day one in office, I’ve had staff doubling down to increase access to testing, masks, vaccines, information, and financial and health support. This decision will not slow us down, it will only give additional impetus to our efforts to fight the virus on all fronts.”

Board Of Selectmen Discusses American Rescue Plan Cash

With a string of heavy spending and $ 7.6 million in American Rescue Plan (ARP) funds pending disbursement, the Board of Selectmen initiated a discussion on the possible use of the money on 4 selection meetings on Sept. 20.

Treasury director Robert Tait said the ARP paid out $ 1.56 billion to counties and cities and $ 3.93 billion to residents across the country. Of the $ 7.6 million in money, the city received half or $ 3.8 million this year and the other half will be available next year.

First Selectman Dan Rosenthal said that while the city is not required to provide formal funding for the issuance of ARP funds, he felt it would be better to follow the charter process in allocating the funds. Rosenthal thought it would create a paper trail in case the federal government questions how Newtown used the funds and show taxpayers how those funds were used.

“I think we should do this for the sake of transparency,” said Rosenthal. “That’s the most sensible thing, so everything is recorded. That’s the best way. “

Rosenthal felt that one of the better uses for the funding was the Hawley HVAC project, which along with expected ties will be funded in part by a school board surplus. Using the grant for something that would otherwise bind the city would save the city money in interest. Rosenthal said it was important for voters to know how much of the project would be paid for using the grant if asked for project approval in November.

“Using this will save us on retention costs – it’s a smart financial decision,” said Selectman Jeff Capeci.

If voters don’t approve of the Hawley Project, ARP funds can be used elsewhere. Rosenthal said it was “important to get the ball rolling” on how much to spend on the Hawley Project so it can go through the Finance Committee and Legislative Council in time to vote on November 2nd election day Voters to come.

The city has until December 21, 2024 to allocate funds from the payout and spend an additional year thereafter. According to the U.S. Treasury Department, ARP funds from the city can be used to:

* Support public health spending by funding things like COVID-19 containment, medical spending, behavioral health care, and certain public health and safety workers.

* Address negative economic impacts caused by the public health emergency, including economic damage to workers, households, small businesses, affected industries and the public sector.

* Replace lost public sector revenue by using these funds to provide government services to the extent that revenue has declined due to the pandemic.

* Provision of bonus payments for key workers and additional support for those who have and will bear the greatest health risks as a result of their service in critical infrastructure sectors.

* Invest in water, sewer and broadband infrastructure and make the necessary investments to improve access to clean drinking water, support vital sewage and rainwater infrastructure and expand access to broadband internet.

“Within these overall categories, beneficiaries have great flexibility in deciding how best to use these funds to meet the needs of their communities,” the Treasury Department said on the website.

Rosenthal noted that the ARP requires that anything that funds are used for is not a “recurring item” – for example, a new position with a salary would not be an approved use of the money. All recurring items would have to be financed from the normal operating budget of the city in the coming years. In addition, ARP funding cannot be applied directly to budget as revenue to directly lower the milling rate.

Some other things the city could use the money on alongside the Hawley project are new WiFi routers in the community center and community center that select people said were working poorly; a new roof for the community center; and vehicle cameras for the police.

Rosenthal said all police cruisers have cameras, but the current ones are “starting to fail”.

“If we do some of these things with ARP funds, the operating budget is relieved,” said Rosenthal.

Other ideas included a terrace in the Community Center, a campus bike park in Fairfield Hills and a renovation of the Dickinson Park Pavilion for the Parks & Recreation Department.

“Those are a few ideas, there are sure to be more”, says Rosenthal.

The possibility of providing some form of grants to companies harmed by COVID-19 was also mentioned, but Rosenthal said this was a “management challenge”.

“What money do we give a company?” Asked Rosenthal. “How do we do this to maintain confidentiality, how do we not miss any people? I think it’s noble, but how do you do it in a fair way? “

Because of this, Rosenthal said he believed it was “better to do things that take the sting out of the mill rate”.

“When mill prices rise, companies and residents alike feel the sting,” says Rosenthal.

Rosenthal said it was best to use the ARP funds on items that will definitely end up in the operating budget, such as the police cameras, rather than on “wishlist items.”

“If the [federal] The government is shooting something, I don’t want to say: ‘Well, shoot, we wouldn’t have done that without the extra money,’ ”said Rosenthal.

Capeci said he wanted to “weigh the compromises,” and Rosenthal said he would continue to discuss the funds with Tait to “examine different scenarios and what the tie-up costs would look like”.

An Eye-Catching Fashion of Benetti and Loro Piana Interiors on Board the Motopanfilo 37m

Benetti and Loro Piana Interiors have formed an important collaboration in which the maison furnished both the interior and part of the exterior of the new Benetti yacht. The establishment of Motopanfilo 37M offers timelessly elegant materials and fabrics by Loro Piana Interiors and underlines the sophisticated and inviting lines of Lazzarini Pickering Architetti. Inspired by the yachting tradition of the 1960s and with technical and stylistic solutions that meet the needs of modern owners, Motopanfilo 37M is a yacht that is characterized by light and space, by constant eye contact with the sea and by large terraces on the water surface.
To express their pride in this project, Azimut | Benetti Group Vice President Giovanna Vitelli commented: “Benetti and Loro Piana Interiors share many values, primarily a focus on fine craftsmanship and a penchant for timeless elegance. Indeed, this is the stylistic essence of the new Benetti Motopanfilo 37M, taking our yachting heritage and projecting it into the future, making it a perfect match for the style of Loro Piana Interiors. “

The selected fabrics are classics for summer on the water, with linen playing the main role, the epitome of cool and comfortable fibers with its wonderfully distinctive and naturally nubby texture. Lazzarini Pickering Architetti chose bed linen by Loro Piana Interiors in warm white tones with blue and malachite accents, a combination that eloquently evokes the ethos of the 1960s.

Connemara, a full-bodied and hard-wearing linen, is used for upholstery and duvets, while Papeete linen in fine malachite is used for sommiers and pillows.

The striped linen Millwood, Devondale and Darjeeling enliven their warm white base color with shades of blue in various widths of stripes and combinations. The same bedding is used for the large decorative pillows that can be found in the yacht’s living areas. The decor is rounded off by fire-resistant technical fabrics for outdoor use, which are also striped blue and white.

“The Benetti Motopanfilo 37M is the second major Azimut | Benetti project we have worked on after the Magellano,” explains Francesco Pergamo, Head of Loro Piana Interiors Division.

The yacht sector is one of the most important for Loro Piana Interiors, which offers a wide and well-structured range with accents on natural fibers and a rich color palette with unusual classic colors that meet the needs of shipyards and owners alike.

Claudio Lazzarini and Carl Pickering commented: “We are honored to present the Motopanfilo 37M to the press and the nautical industry. As you will find out, the yacht offers an unprecedented feeling of indoor and outdoor space for a boat of this size.

For its premiere at the Cannes Yachting Festival, the furnishing accessories for the Motopanfilo 37M, selected in collaboration with Lazzarini Pickering Architetti, will also come from Loro Piana Interiors: cashmere plaids, outdoor carpets and fabrics for indoor use.

Founded in 1873, Benetti is the oldest Italian shipyard specializing in luxury yachts. Benetti designs, builds and sells composite vessels from 29m to 44m and steel and aluminum boats from 37m to over 100m. The fleet consists of five categories: Class, Oasis, B.Yond, B.Now and Custom to meet all market demands to meet. Benetti is part of the Azimut | Benetti Group, the largest private luxury yacht group in the world.

Report: Utah Board Misused Public Cash on Fossil Gas Tasks, Didn’t Fund Rural Neighborhood Wants

SALT LAKE CITY – The Utah Clean Infrastructure Coalition publishes a report Today it is revealed that the Utah Permanent Community Impact Fund board has allocated more than $ 109 million in public funds to projects to promote or expand fossil fuel extraction in violation of federal mineral leasing law.

The report also documents that needed infrastructure projects in rural communities are not being funded while Utah leaders are using federal leases and royalties to help the fossil fuel industry, including a planned oil railroad and oil refinery.

“Utahns are deeply damaged by drought, forest fires, smoke and extreme weather exacerbated by fossil fuels,” said Deeda Seed of the Center for Biodiversity. “It is outrageous that Utah leaders are using public money to subsidize the fossil fuel industry that is causing this climate crisis. That has to end now. We need to invest in sustainable, resilient infrastructure for all communities in Utah. “

Oil, gas, and coal companies pay the federal government the right to develop federally owned minerals on public land and pay royalties for any minerals they mine. Congress intended to use this money to help rural communities facing rapid growth and infrastructure problems due to fossil fuel extraction.

Utah is responsible for distributing the money to the affected communities. However, today’s report noted that much of that administered by the governor-appointed Permanent Community Impact Fund Board has been used to enable fossil fuel extraction. Meanwhile, millions of dollars in community projects identified by rural communities have not been funded, including water and sanitation services, recreation centers, road improvements, and public safety equipment.

“I have stayed out of politics since I left office, but I cannot remain silent when I witness the misconduct of the elected and appointed people who represent the people of Utah,” said the former Salt Lake City mayor and State MP Jackie Biskupski at a press conference on the steps of the State Capitol. “I respectfully urge the Department of the Interior and the Bureau of Land Management to conduct a thorough investigation of state mineral lease spending in the state of Utah since 2009 and to take the necessary steps to ensure that local Utah communities receive these funds for their community- and infrastructure projects. “

Today’s report reinforces the findings of a 2020 report from Utah’s Office of the Legislative Auditor General, who raised serious concerns about the Community Impact Board, including the board’s failure to properly fund economic development projects. Despite the findings and recommendations of the audit, the board of directors continued to abuse public funds.

“We call on the legislature and the Utah Community Impact Board to adopt the recommendations set out in the report, including a motion to ban the use of CIB public funds on projects designed to promote or facilitate the extraction of fossil fuels, in accordance with federal law. “Said Carly Ferro, executive director of the Sierra Club’s Utah Chapter. “The Sierra Club will continue to hold regulators and industry accountable for ensuring that polluters are given priority over people. We must continue to invest in communities, people and the environment, and only together can we achieve what is possible. “

“The misuse of money by the Community Impact Fund Board, which is legally intended to help communities affected by the dirty fossil fuel industry, is reprehensible and illegal,” said Jonny Vasic, executive director of Utah Physicians for a Healthy Environment. “These funds should be used to help local communities deal with the impact of the mining industry, not to duplicate a polluting industry that affects people’s health and contributes to climate change.”

Utah Clean Infrastructure partners include the Center for Biological Diversity, Southern Utah Wilderness Alliance, Sierra Club, Rural Utah Project, Utah Physicians for a Health Environment, Utah Tar Sands Resistance, Living Rivers, Utah Environmental Caucus, No Coal In Oakland, No Coal In Richmond and the Healthy Environment Alliance of Utah (HEAL Utah).

College board has not spent cash frivolously

As a member of the Shelton Board of Education for over 10 years, I disagree with the recent comment by Vice Chairman Jimmy Orazietti, quoted in the Shelton Herald, saying that “depositing the excess funds in this account encourages the BOE to save, rather than output “. frivolously on non-essential things that were all too often practiced in the past. “

To say that we spent money frivolously couldn’t be further from the truth and it should be noted that this is the personal opinion of Mr. Orazietti, not the position of the majority of the BOE.

The Shelton Board of Education has been funded with lump or minimal funding for many years, which means that we have laid off more than 48 certified employees in the past four years, in addition to secretaries, supervisors, administrators and auxiliaries. Jobs were also cut through fluctuation and did not replace all resignations or retirements. Improvements to our schools and curricula have been postponed again and again due to lack of funds.

Orazietti wrongly gives the public the impression that we have not handled money responsibly. This year it is only thanks to the COVID funding from the American Cares Act that it is finally possible to make major technological upgrades and become a one-on-one district that lags far behind many neighboring districts. The public needs to be aware that your BOE spends money sparingly and wisely on quality education for our students. We are not reckless as assumed.

Additionally, in a recent letter to the editor written by Republican Carl Rizzo, he points to the decline in enrollments in recent years, especially last year when we had a decline of 248 students. What he doesn’t mention is that due to COVID, a large portion of these students have been withdrawn from Shelton Public Schools to either be homeschooled or enrolled in private schools that attended five days a week. We will likely see many of these students return in the fall.

Rizzo also cites an increase in spending per student, without mentioning the accompanying increase in the number of special schools from 12.3 percent of enrollments in 2014-15 to 16.9 percent last year. The increase in spending per student is not a direct result of a decrease in school enrollment or anything on the city side. The main reason for this number is the cost of special education, many of which require expensive outplacement.

Additionally, several of the BOE’s accomplishments in the past two years that he spearheads have not been city-funded, including laptops for teachers and staff, increased network speeds, one-to-one Chromebooks, and the new Wit and Wisdom Reading Program, all financed by funded money from the American Cares Act, as mentioned above.

“No fee for pre-k program” was just a course correction. When we introduced a fee for the Pre-k due to a lack of funding, the enrollment of regular education colleagues, which is required by law, decreased, so we did not charge any fees again. It should also be noted that “more than $ 5 million refunded dollars” was money that went into town rather than into the BOE coffers.

I warn citizens to double-check the “facts” they have read as this is actually an election year, or as a former colleague called it “silly time of year”.

The Editorial Board: Poloncarz’s plans for a flood of federal cash are OK, however they need to goal for transformational | Editorial

Erie County’s executive director Mark C. Poloncarz plans to use a portion of the county’s historic federal grant to fund an expansion of the Buffalo and Erie County’s Botanical Gardens. While some of the plans are good, the county should aim for transformation.

Derek Gee / Buffalo News


Erie County’s executive director Mark Poloncarz has suggested several worthwhile ideas for investing the stream of federal dollars heading the county, but we hope he will reconsider some of the suggestions with this idea in mind: Coming 2111 – 90 years from now – What will county residents look to their ancestors with gratitude?

The county’s residents – and millions of Americans – feel it when they look at the projects that were carried out some 90 years ago when the federal government last opened their wallets. Then, during the Great Depression, President Franklin D. Roosevelt drove the building of parks, stadiums, courthouses, energy projects, and more to get desperate Americans to work while improving the country.

Then it is not. Our economy is buzzing again – hence inflation concerns – and President Biden is missing the compliant / interested Congress that FDR had. In addition, the money is distributed in different ways – there is no equivalent to the social security program in this federal package – and is conditional.

But the money is still a golden opportunity, and as Joseph Lorigo, minority leader of the county legislature, noted, it is not time to play “little ball”. When a Conservative Party member says this, you know there’s an appetite to think big.

The US $ 1.9 trillion bailout plan provides states, schools, and communities, including counties, historic levels of funding. Half of Erie County’s total profit of $ 178 million is already in place, with the remaining $ 89 million expected in the next year. In addition, the county expects an additional $ 34.4 million from Albany – money that was initially threatened and then restored.

Wauseon faculty board tackles cash and naming points | Native Information

WAUSEON – Issues related to spending money and naming facilities arose at the Education Committee for Exempt Schools meeting in Wauseon on Monday.

With the school being financially precautionary, Superintendent Troy Armstrong was reluctant to attend the Ohio School Board Association’s capital city conference.

“Do we want to go as the board of directors in view of the financial position in which we find ourselves with the fiscal provisions,” asked Armstrong. “Shouldn’t we save about $ 2,500? Shall we go for a day? “

The board of directors interfered with their ideas.

“I don’t know if I feel comfortable spending that much money, given the circumstances,” said Sandy Griggs.

On the subject of money, Treasurer David Fleming raised a few things in his report to the Board of Directors. First of all, he informed the board that an income tax levy would be voted on this fall.

The board of directors passed a resolution on the 2% income tax allocation.

Fleming also announced to the board that the district’s 2014 bond is in the process of being repaid.

“The broker made offers to 61 banks this morning,” Fleming said. “This will save taxpayers an estimated $ 100,000 a year in taxes.”

At a previous meeting, members of the community spoke about the possibility of adding former coach Larry Fruth to the name of the football field and the stadium. However, before the process could begin, the district needed guidelines for such items.

The board agreed on a guideline and hopes to be able to set up a committee to serve for the July or August meetings.

The board also heard from Jenny Tester, the district grocery manager. She explained to the board how the district used grants to pay for meals for the students.

• Approved donations of $ 7,950 to the pantry; $ 184.35 for NWOAL Championships; $ 957.38 for track / soccer scoreboard graphics and $ 250 for homecoming.

4A Board awards cash for subsequent finances cycle

Representatives from agencies receiving money through the Wichita Falls Economic Development Corporation lined up at City Hall Thursday to make their case for further funding. The EDC, informally known as the 4A Board, makes recommendations to the city council on how to use a portion of the city’s sales tax revenue for economic development projects.

The representatives, some with Power Point presentations, explained what their agencies have achieved in the past year and what they are hoping for next year. The board of directors granted all requests.

  • The Sheppard Military Affairs Committee, whose job it is to protect and promote missions at the air base, was approved for $ 286,420 in the upcoming budget cycle, slightly less than its allocation for 2021.
  • Downtown Wichita Falls, whose mission is to promote downtown development, was approved for $ 106,500.
  • The ideaWF program at Midwestern State University received up to $ 300,000. The program provides training and grants to aspiring entrepreneurs.
  • The Wichita Falls Chamber of Commerce, which acts as the city’s agency for promoting the city and attracting new industries, received a significant boost from $ 1,099,830 to $ 1,148,759. Chamber President Henry Florsheim said the additional money would be used for expenses related to staffing, marketing, updating online sites, adding an internship platform, and printing moving guides.

In other areas, the board has postponed some of the obligations of Eagle Railcar, a company that was incentivized in exchange for hiring workers. Layoffs necessary during the COVID-19 pandemic prevented the company from meeting hiring deadlines.

The board revised the wording of a program to incentivize employees moving to Wichita Falls from out of town and approved the award of $ 930,795 to Blackrock Construction for water and wastewater improvements in the Wichita Falls Business Park.

One of the board’s agenda items was an incentive agreement with Panda Biotech, a company that claims to be building a large hemp processing facility here. Panda has taken out a $ 1 million loan to promise to hire at least 50 employees. The issue was discussed in a closed instead of an open meeting and no action was taken.

Marlington board wants higher cash administration

About the editor:

I saw Marlington’s BOE meeting on May 20th and what I heard was unacceptable. This board majority has the courage to spend more than a year on the old elementary school buildings, hire additional staff that is not needed, buy additional furniture, etc., and at no point have I heard of them saving any money.

They’re looking for sofa money just so they can spend it on something. The superintendent says he and the board are looking for ways to cut costs every day, but I haven’t heard any.

When I heard the “unconfident” talk of introducing a property tax on the ballot, I knew they weren’t so sure whether the voters they believe would support would be adopting this upcoming tax in November or May 2022 Mr Hagan knows this as he has said the majority should possibly consider a smaller millage in order for something to bypass the voters.

What I’ve heard that really puzzles me is that the Stark County’s accountant has to determine the property values ​​in the district, including the NEXUS pipeline that defines the millage that majority agency will be asking about. If a levy would pass and NEXUS

If the levy fell and NEXUS wins its case, the community would increase our taxes to make up the difference. How can this board majority sit there and make such bad decisions? Do you, the board of directors, not understand or do you not care that there will be people in this community who will be seriously injured by your increase in property tax?

Mr Hagan has said that he will also wait until May 2022 so that a tax campaign can be carried out to try to convince the need to pass the property tax tax. Again, not so confident with voters saying goodbye.

Speaking of bad decisions, I want to remind this board of the possibility of losing all three of the assets on the Consumer Bank eight year loan. If you miss a payment, the district will lose all three buildings as we no longer own them. The district really needs to know that this Marlington majority has not served the district at all, has put the district into lower deficit spending, and must go.

These members have put Marlington in a very bad position. Who wants higher property taxes?

– Darrell Gammon, Lexington Ward

EDITOR’S NOTE: This letter was submitted before Danielle J. Stevens announced her resignation from the Marlington Local School Board.
