Sheldrake River Drainage Basin Project

A flood mitigation project in the Sheldrake River Drainage Basin in the neighborhood containing Catherine, Canterbury, Cayuga, Seneca and Oneida Roads, has been discussed at many public meetings over the last several years. The Village has worked toward developing a project that both the neighborhood and the Village agree will provide a cost-effective benefit. The project scope of work has been modified a number of times as the Village seeks to find a beneficial plan relative to flood mitigation and certain legal and financial issues.

Earlier this year, the Village Board formed a working group including Board members, residents, Village staff and the Village’s consulting engineer from Dvirka and Bartilucci (D&B). Based on discussions amongst this working group, D&B revised the project scope of work to include the following:

1.       Construction of new culvert crossings at Cayuga Road and Canterbury Road. These culverts will eliminate the road infrastructure and provide for open grating, similar to many bridge decks, to allow for ease of access and maintenance and perhaps additional flow capacity;

2.       Construction of a connector culvert to the south side of Canterbury Road that will assist in balancing the current flows that enter the storm drain piping on Canterbury Road;

3.       Removal of accumulated silt through the open watercourse that abuts the properties of 6 Cayuga Road and 14 and 18 Canterbury Road; and

4.       Hydraulic analysis to determine if existing Cayuga Pond orifice opening modifications are required.

The Village Board at its August 13, 2013 meeting appropriated $600,000 from the General Fund, Fund Balance for the Sheldrake River Drainage Basin Modified Project as well as authorizing a professional services agreement with D&B to design the project. As part of this contract, D&B performed hydraulic modeling for the proposed improvements both upstream and downstream to ensure that the design meets all requirements and to identify other pathways for flood mitigation via storage or conveyance. D&B has completed this modeling presented the findings and potential changes to the project as a result of the modeling to the Municipal Services Committee on December 4, 2013.

New York State’s Small Business Storm Recovery Program

New York State has announced that the first storm-impacted businesses have been approved for grants through New York State’s Small Business Storm Recovery Program and that they are ready to assist with a streamlined application process so you may quickly receive the grants for which they may be eligible.  

Through this program, businesses are eligible for grants of $50,000 or more to help replace physical items such as machinery, moveable equipment, inventory, furniture and fixtures, as well as help with the day to day expenses entrepreneurs need to run their businesses.  Further, the Program is able to provide grants to reimburse businesses that already purchased these physical items to get their business back up and running.  In both cases, the grants would cover “uncompensated costs” above and beyond those covered by insurance proceeds, grant programs and other government resources.

As a first step, businesses should contact their local Small Business Development Center (SBDC) office, where an SBDC business advisor will provide free assistance with completing the application process.  For a list of SBDC locations in your community, please refer to http://www.nysandyhelp.ny.gov/sites/default/files/documents/businesscenterlocations.pdf.

New York State representatives are already reaching out to business owners in your community to encourage them to apply for grants and low-interest loans available through this program.  To build on these initial outreach efforts, please forward to your constituents as soon as possible a summary of the available grant and loan programs (see http://www.nysandyhelp.ny.gov/sites/default/files/documents/smallbusiness-factsheet_rev_4-25-13.pdf), as well as the list of SBDC locations.

Please keep in mind that funds will also be available in the near future for real property repair and rehabilitation; and that application and receipt of funds for any of the above items does not exclude businesses from applying for repair or rehabilitation funding in the future.
