Avalon's Tax Abatement Comes Under Scrutiny by Peggy Godfrey (In Westchester Herald, September 7, 2009)
New Rochelle Councilman Lou Trangucci is planning to ask the City Council members at their September 8 meeting to sign a letter requesting that the downtown Avalon apartment buildings voluntarily make tax contributions to the city. He is suggesting a contribution of one million dollars per year for the next four or five years to help the city through the present financial crisis.
Among the items Trangucci enumerated is the $12 million Avalon would pay if full taxes were required. Presently their payment to the city is $650,000, based on their "profit" as projected in the pilot agreement which lasts 30 years with the city.
Layoffs in city service personnel have been threatened for next year and Trangucci's proposed request to Avalon is a way of averting layoffs. Avalon, it should be remembered, will be adversely effected by any layoffs because presently 15-17% of the police, fire and emergency medical services are needed for downtown.
there will be a showing by Patrick Bancel.
His solo show “Billboards” is a new collection of Billboards Painting, Photos and Videos.

Attention all New Rochelle Residents
Despite what city management is telling its residents, the City of New Rochelle has once again threatened to eliminate firefighter positions. This threat puts in danger the vital services we provide to you, the citizens of New Rochelle
Today, the city is in the process of preparing its 2010 budget. The City has made it clear that layoffs are a distinct possibility. In fact, it has been brought to the Firefighters’ attention that The City of New Rochelle is seriously contemplating eliminating 16 firefighter positions. That amount is equal to 10% of our current work force.
Presently, the NRFD has 8 positions that remain unfilled due to a hiring freeze unilaterally imposed by the City of New Rochelle. This hiring freeze forces us to operate BELOW recommended staffing levels. Apparently, that sacrifice is not enough for the City of New Rochelle. Instead, the City has threatened to lay-off and eliminate 8 more firefighter positions, on top of the 8 already unfilled.
Over the last thirty (30) years, The New Rochelle Fire Department, made up solely of professional firefighters, has evolved into a full-service emergency response department. The services that we provide far exceed the services of other surrounding departments. In addition to firefighting, we also provide

Sources tell NRCP that the pool at New Rochelle High School was not given a "clean bill of health" by the Health Department. This is what we have so far:
• Since the beginning of last week, the New Rochelle High School swimming program has been renting the pool facilities at the College of New Rochelle.
• The cost of this rental is costing New Rochelle taxpayers somewhere in the neighborhood of $350.00 dollars per day for the use of the pool facilities at the College of New Rochelle, plus the cost of transporting the members of the swim program via bus.
This does not seem to be an efficient way to spend taxpayer money. If anyone has more information on the subject, we urge you to "sound off" right here and allow the people to be aware where the resources set aside for the education of the children of New Rochelle are being wasted.Read More
