A Special Meeting of the Rush Town Board was held on June 8, 2006 at the Rush Town Offices, 5977 East Henrietta Road and was called to order at 6:00 p.m.
Councilman Donald Knab
Councilman Thomas Doupe
Councilwoman Lisa Sluberski
Supervisor William Udicious
Councilman Luther Keyes, excused
Supervisor Udicious stated that the board members have received a copy of the proposed resolution authorizing the Town’s opposition to the lawsuit brought by the County of Monroe regarding the sales tax intercept.
Supervisor Udicious moved that the following proposed resolution be adopted:
WHEREAS the County of Monroe has commenced a lawsuit naming as defendants the Town of Rush along with all other
municipalities and school districts in the county, and seeking declaratory judgment of the county’s authority to
elect the sales tax intercept medical assistance reimbursement methodology, and
WHEREAS, the County of Monroe has taken the position that the intercepted funds will reduce the net sales tax revenue collections that the county is obligated to share with the various municipalities and school districts named in the lawsuit, and
WHEREAS, the County has asserted that it has no obligation to otherwise compensate the various municipalities and school districts for the significant decrease in funds they will receive from New York State sales tax revenue if the intercept option is elected by the County, and
WHEREAS, the County’s proposal as set forth in the lawsuit will significantly diminish the funds the Town of Rush will receive from the shared New York State sales tax revenue, and
WHEREAS, the Town’s position in this matter is entirely consistent with a unanimous vote of the Monroe County Supervisors Association at its March 17, 2006, meeting opposing the “intercept” proposal by the County, and
WHEREAS, it is the duty of the Town Board to protect the residents of the Town of Rush from the significant detrimental financial effect of the county’s action as proposed in the lawsuit.
THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED that the Town Attorney is hereby authorized and directed to file a response to the lawsuit in opposition to the County’s position as taken therein. Councilman Knab seconded the motion.
Councilman Knab aye

Councilwoman Sluberski aye
