New York's Suffolk County Legislature Exploring the Relocation of the Suffolk County Trap & Skeet Range!

Monday, November 20, 2006

 

Please Attend the County Meeting on Tuesday, November 21!   

The Suffolk County Legislature will hear, consider, and vote on legislation aimed at the relocation of the Suffolk County Trap & Skeet Range during the November 21 meeting.

 

Tuesday, November 21, 9:00 AM,

Suffolk County Legislative Building,

Veterans Memorial Highway,

Hauppauge, New York

 

IR-2123-2006, introduced by Legislator Kate Browning is supposedly intended to create an impartial fact-finding search committee to see if there is an alternative site that can be used to relocate the Suffolk County Trap & Skeet Range from its present location to another. 

 

However, Ms. Browning, the Parks and Recreation Committee, or any member of the County Legislature has had a number of years to simply write a letter to those in charge requesting an inventory of all land available in the County that could be used as an alternative to the current Suffolk Trap & Skeet Range location.  This same suggestion has been made numerous times before and during the numerous hearings. 

 

Certain language in the bill is questionable as Ms. Browning has geared the legislation for her own benefit.  Specifically subdivision 5 of the 2nd Resolved, would allow the Legislative Representative from the 3rd Legislative District (Ms. Browning) is to have the power to appoint an individual who currently lives adjacent to the existing range. 

 

The makeup of the rest of this search committee is supposedly composed of neutral people concerned with reviewing a list of all land available and each ones suitability to becoming a Trap & Skeet Range.  The person appointed by Ms. Browning cannot and will not be neutral and will be there to simply to create friction among the committee people and bring a degree of anger and frustration to the proceedings. 

 

The committee would function much better without an adversarial person on it which is likely what this person would be.  After all, this person would be the only one there who would have a PERSONAL stake in the outcome of any deliberations while the rest of the committee would be concerned only with the facts.

 

Please attend this meeting and make it clear that if this bill is passed it should only be passed if amended to exclude subdivision 5 of the 2nd Resolved.
