081112-337?RESOLVED:
Whereas, the Town of Brant supports the agricultural industry, the protection of Farmland and efforts to prevent erosion and other problems in rural parts of Erie County; and
Whereas, the Cooperative Extension and the Erie County Soil & Water Conservation District provide important services to the communities in Erie County, which services are key to maintaining the economic and environmental health of the rural communities ; and
Whereas, the Town Board has been advised that the proposed budget submitted by the Erie County Executive Chris Collins provides no funding for either organization for 2009 which will eliminate all county funding for the continued programming and operations of Cornell Cooperative Extension of Erie County. This loss of funding will result in the closure of Cooperative Extension and the end of all programming and activities as of January 1, 2009. The closure of Cornell Cooperative Extension would also result in the loss of $940,000 to the County that comes from other funding sources; such as both the State of New York and the Federal Government which will greatly magnify the loss.
And Whereas, Cornell Cooperative Extension?s important and needed educational programs support over 1,000 agriculture and horticulture businesses that generate over $100 million in sales revenue annually; 4-H youth development that works with more than 70 4-H afterschool programs and clubs throughout the City of Buffalo and Erie County; food and nutrition education, energy conservation and consumer financial management education; and community development assistance and support.
Whereas, Agricultural and horticultural programming from Cornell Cooperative Extension provides access to the latest research through the land grant university system including specialists who make on-farm visits. These resources are needed by these businesses to help them grow and prosper so they can strengthen their local communities and the Erie County economy. They also rely on Cornell Cooperative Extension to provide information and technical assistance for the production of high quality, nutritious food for all county consumers.

Whereas, the loss to the Town of Brant and the entire region as a result of not funding the Cooperative Extension and their programs and Erie County Soil & Water Conservation District would be devastating to the vitality of our agricultural and horticultural businesses and the many beneficial contributions they make to our communities. 
Now Therefore, Be It Resolved As Follows:
1. That for the reasons outlined above the Town Board of the Town of Brant requests that County Executive Chris Collins and the Erie County Legislature restore the badly needed $295,000 funding to the Cooperative Extension and to Erie County Soil & Water Conservation District to their 2008 funding level
2. That certified copies of this resolution be forwarded to the Erie County Executive, all members of Erie County Legislature, all Towns of Erie County, the Erie County Commissioner of Environment and Planning
