Ramapo's deal for Suffern development binds schools

August 26, 2014 "A luxury apartment project has been handed a tax break by the Town of Ramapo that also lowers its school taxes
by potentially hundreds of thousands of dollars — without the school district agreeing to the deal
The town of Ramapo on Thursday
adopted a resolution to set the 91-unit apartment development's property taxes for the town, the school district and for the county
for at least 25 years and up to 40 years.The developer, Orange Avenue Associates, is owned by Sheldon Goldstein, who has strong ties
with Gov. Andrew Cuomo. Richard Sirota, Cuomo's campaign treasurer, is a partner for the project. Theresa DiFalco, president of the
school board, wrote in an email that the district "was not privy to the negotiations and ultimate agreement reached between the Town
of Ramapo and the developer."
The school board set a special meeting for 5 p.m. Tuesday at the district office in Hillburn to discuss
the issue." Read the full text of the Journal News coverage here.

August 22, 2014 "Two referendums set for Sept. 30 will be an opportunity for residents to change the size and makeup of the Town
Board — which a pair of activists hope would create a more robust opposition to the current administration. Putting an end to
the 21-month court battle initiated by local activists, the Ramapo Town Board on Thursday unanimously agreed to schedule the
referendums from 6 a.m. to 10 p.m. Sept. 30. All the polling sites in town will be used for the vote. Complete Journal News story here.
