Batavia, NY - November 16, 2011 - A new website, specifically designed to help residents stay informed as the creation of the new city charter unfolds, is now live. The website (www.cgr.org/onebataviacharter) has been launched by the Task Force, which includes an eight-person committee and the study consultant.
The City & Town of Batavia applied for and received a grant from New York State's Local Government Efficiency (LGE) program. After receiving the grant, the City and Town engaged the Center for Governmental Research (CGR), a Rochester-based consulting organization with significant experience in local government consolidation, to assist the Task Force. Task Force members representing the City are Chad Bachorski, Gail Stevens, Dan Jones, and Laura Landers. Representatives for the Town are Chad Zambito, Judith Cotton, Larry Reisdorf, and Marcia Riley. There are two alternates for the Task Force: City resident Joe Gerace and Town resident Alan Koch.
The Task Force has been charged by the Town and City to develop a new city charter that would legally consolidate the two municipalities into one new City of Batavia. The Task Force is also working to generate a home rule bill that would allow the new city charter to be brought to the citizens of Batavia for public referendum. It is the intent of the governing bodies of City and Town to place the new city charter before voters in November 2012.
"The committee is excited to have the website up and running so that we can easily share information with the community," said Chad Zambito, Task Force chair. "This is an important project that could have long term implications on the citizens of Batavia and we hope they take this opportunity to digest the information and make an informed decision."
Key charter documents and Task Force reports will be posted to the website, with postings occurring throughout the process. Batavia residents wishing to submit comments and feedback directly to the Task Force can do so via the website. Residents can also sign up to receive email alerts when significant new information is added to the site.
"The website worked very well during the original Batavia consolidation study," Zambito said, referring to the analysis conducted by CGR for the City and Town in 2008 and 2009 which served as a precursor to the Task Force's work. "The committee felt it would be an important communication tool as the process moves forward."
Editors' Note: The study consultant engaged by the City and Town, the Center for Governmental Research, has offices in Rochester and Albany. CGR is a 96-year-old nonprofit, nonpartisan, independent consulting organization with significant expertise with dissolution / consolidation / and shared services involving local governments
