WHEREAS, this resolution has been submitted by the County Executive on behalf of the Ulster County Planning Department; and

WHEREAS, the ESD has provided a draft Grant Disbursement Agreement (the “Agreement”) which will become finalized once the County’s application is approved; and

WHEREAS, the Director of the Planning Department requests the Chair of the Ulster County Legislature be authorized to execute the Grant Disbursement Agreement once it is finalized, any amendments thereto, and any accompanying documents necessary for Ulster County to receive the Funds; now, therefore, be it
RESOLVED, that the Chair of the Ulster County Legislature is hereby authorized to execute the Grant Disbursement Agreement and any amendments thereto, with the New York State Urban Development Corporation, d/b/a Empire State Development, in the form as filed with the Clerk of the Ulster County Legislature or as modified with the approval of the County Attorney and any accompany documents necessary for Ulster County to receive the Funds,
