      Community Choice Aggregation

The Town of Brookhaven has formed a  Community Choice Aggregation Feasibility Study Committee to explore the concept and possible advantages of a CCA in lowering the cost of power to the residents of Brookhaven.
What is Community Choice Aggregation? Community 
Choice Aggregation is a strategy that puts control of choosing energy supply in local hands. It is a municipal model for procuring energy that replaces the utility as the default supplier of electricity and/or natural gas for virtually all homes and businesses within a jurisdiction. By pooling demand, communities build the clout necessary to negotiate a fixed-rate, potentially lower pricing with private suppliers. Communities are also able to choose cleaner energy while developing distributed energy resources including local renewable energy projects and shared renewables such as community solar, energy efficiency, demand response, energy management, and microgrid projects. Each council district has one member of the public on the Feasibility Committee: 
District 1 – Valerie Cartright (member Dave Calone)
District 2 – Jane Bonner (member Sid Bail)
District 3 – Kevin LaValle (member Bruce Morrison)
District 4 – Michael Loguercio (member Chris Reilly)
District 5 – Neil Foley (member Vincent Rasulo)
District 6 – Dan Panico (member Roy Reynolds)   
  More information and FAQ’s on this exploratory CCA effort can be found in this NYSERDA document.
  There will also be a formal PowerPoint® presentation on this concept to the Town Board on Thursday, Oct 3 at 5:30 PM at the Public

Coram Civic Note:
 The Resolution passed by the Longwood BOE is an “expression of support” only, for the desire of some in the public to ask for an extension of the compliance time beyond the mandated 14 days contained in the Public Health Law. It does not in any manner, shape or form change the current vaccination law requirements or the 14-day time limit for compliance that the district is required by law to follow.


New Sanitary Code-Cesspool & 
Septic Systems-July 1, 2019
Beginning on July l , 2O19, When a property owner determines that their sanitary system (i.e. cesspool, etc.) needs to be replaced or retrofitted, approval for the  replacement or retrofit must be obtained from SCDHS. The new system must conform  to current standards, which require, at a minimum, a septic tank preceding a leaching  structure. This requirement does not mandate that residential properties with cesspools be upgraded; property owners must only comply with this new requirement when  they decide to make a modification to their existing sanitary system such as adding  an additional cesspool or replacing a collapsed cesspoolread full notice
