For immediate Release:

Town of Hancock Explores Residential Bulk Electricity Purchasing Program

Program will help lower residential electricity rates and protect consumers from predatory marketers

At one public session to be held at Town Hall on Wednesday, November 29th residents of the Town of Hancock can learn about Community Choice Aggregation, the new residential bulk electricity purchasing program.  The session will be held at 6 PM at Hancock Town Hall, 661 West Main Street, Hancock, NY 13783.  Residents are encouraged to bring their questions and electricity bills.

The Town Board passed a resolution to explore Community Choice Aggregation (CCA). CCA is a new opportunity in the state that allows cities, towns, and villages to pool the electricity accounts of residents and small businesses within their municipal boundaries. The bulk purchasing of electricity increases a consumer’s individual buying power, which will result in lower electricity rates for residents.

CCA Programs also help protect residents from bad energy deals. Additionally, communities have the power to customize their programs based on their values and priorities, such as sourcing renewable, ‘green’ energy.  Consumers who do not wish to participate in the program can opt-out, remaining with the utility.

The Municipal Electric and Gas Alliance (MEGA) was selected by the Town of Hancock to fulfill the role of CCA Administrator, overseeing the creation, development, and implementation of the program. No taxpayer or government funds will be used in the creation or operation of the program.

Join representatives from MEGA and the Town Board at the public education session on November 6th or visit megacca.org to learn more.

Pursuant to the requirements of the New York State Office of Community Renewal, the Town of Hancock will conduct a public hearing to obtain the input of citizens, particularly low and moderate income persons, with regard to the Small Cities Community Development Block Grant Program (CDBG).  The Town of Hancock will hold a public hearing on July 10, 2018 at 7:30 PM at the Town Hall, 661 West Main Street, Hancock, New York 13783 for the purpose of hearing public comments on the Town of Hancock’s community development needs, and to discuss the possible submission of one or more Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) applications for the 2018 program year. The CDBG program is administered by the New York State Office of Community Renewal (OCR) and will make available to eligible local governments approximately $40 million for the 2018 program year for housing, economic development, public facilities, public infrastructure, and planning activities, with the principal purpose of benefitting low/moderate income persons.  The hearing will provide further information about the CDBG program and will allow for citizen participation in the development of any proposed grant applications and/or to provide technical assistance to develop alternate proposals.  Comments on the CDBG program or proposed project(s) will be received at this time.  The hearing is being conducted pursuant to Section 570.486, Subpart I of the CFR and in compliance with the requirements of the Housing and Community Development Act of 1974, as amended.

A draft application for Community Development Block Grant assistance will be reviewed.  The Town proposes to submit a 2018 CFA Public Infrastructure application in an amount not to exceed $750,000 to undertake Phase 2 water infrastructure distribution improvements within the East Branch Water District.  The proposed project will primarily benefit low and moderate income persons.
