Changes to RC Sewer District No. 1

The Rockland County Legislature has voted unanimously to amend significant portions of the local law that governs Rockland County Sewer District No. 1. These changes will be implemented in the coming weeks. The changes include a reduction of the Board from 13 to 10 members; docking the pay of those who fail to attend or who have no documented excuse for missing meetings; and there will be tighter reporting requirements regarding the status of the Sewer District’s overall operations. Additionally, in what is believed to be the first such requirement of a board in Rockland, any Sewer District Commissioner convicted of a felony is automatically and immediately disqualified from the Board. According to Rockland County Legislator Charles Falciglia (R-Suffern) said, “Going forward, there will be more circular reporting now.” Falciglia worked with Planning & Public Works Committee Chairman (Elon) Ilan Schoenberger (D-Wesley Hills) and Legislator Chairman Alden H. Wolfe (D-Montebello) to draft the changes and sponsor the resolution. Wolfe stated, “These changes make it clear that we are all expecting improved transparency when it comes to the Sewer District and its activities.”
