NYS DPS to hold Virtual Hearings for Central Hudson's Electric and Gas Rate Case 9/12/23 and 9/20/23

To ensure full public participation, the Commission will hold a series of virtual hearings on September 12 and 20, 2023, to solicit input and comments from your community regarding Central Hudson Electric and Gas rate cases.

On July 31, 2023, Central Hudson Gas and Electric Corporation (Central Hudson) filed amendments to its electric and natural gas tariff schedules seeking approval from the New York State Public Service Commission (Commission) to increase its annual electric and natural gas delivery revenue to be effective July 1, 2024. Central Hudson serves the territories of Albany, Columbia, Dutchess, Greene, Orange, Putnam, Sullivan, and Ulster counties.

Central Hudson is proposing to increase its electric delivery revenue by approximately $139.5 million (a 31.9 percent increase in base delivery revenues), and its natural gas delivery revenue by approximately $41.5 million (a 29.2 percent increase in base delivery revenues). Central Hudson’s filing proposes to provide energy efficiency incentives and services, invest in infrastructure modernization, and maintain energy affordability while ensuring the continuation of safe, reliable, and resilient electric and gas systems.

New Windsor Police Announce Registry for Vulnerable Persons

The New Windsor Police Department has announced a new program to aid members of vulnerable populations. The department has created a voluntary registry where family members may supply vital information about loved ones who are prone to wandering. This may include individuals with Alzheimer’s Disease, Dementia, Autism, Traumatic Brain Injury or any other type of special needs, physical or mental disability.

Participation in this program is completely voluntary and information provided will be kept at the Police Department and only used when necessary to identify or locate a missing or wandering person. In the event of an emergency, this information can allow officers to quickly and efficiently handle any incident that may arise. It provides officers with relevant and pertinent details that aid in identifying and reconnecting vulnerable persons with their loved one when minutes count.

New Windsor Police Chief, Dan Valeri stated, “Often times, police officers encounter individuals who may not be able to identify themselves or provide their home address. Being able to search the registry, can assist officers in identifying these individuals and getting them home safely. Additionally, when a family member
needs to report their loved one missing, the necessary information is already available for police to disseminate and begin a search.”

The goal of the program is to promote community safety, improve officer safety, increase the efficiency of operations, and give community members some peace of mind for loved ones that may be prone to wandering.

Registration forms are available online by clicking HERE or in person at the Police Department or Town Clerk, Kelly Allegra’s Office. For further information about the program, contact Sgt. Sylvester at 563-4660.
