What’s ahead for authorities, business, environment, health
January 1, 2011
The coming year will be a busy one for public authorities and local development corporations, entities created to handle government business. The state Authorities Budget Office, which monitors public authorities, established an advisory panel in November that is charged with exploring ways to consolidate or dissolve public authorities whose missions are in question. The office also plans to step up oversight of local development corporations, or LDCs, which are designed to issue tax-free debt and undertake public projects.
Two local entities that are expected to be under the microscope in 2011 are the Monroe County Airport Authority and Monroe Security and Safety Systems Inc., a county-created LDC that was awarded a $224 million contract to implement a new public safety communications system. Both have come under intense scrutiny for their procurement practices.
On the transportation front, the Rochester-Genesee Regional Transportation Authority’s construction of a transit terminal downtown will warrant coverage, as will the authority’s process for choosing a new executive director following the pending departure of Mark Aesch at the end of the year.
