Willard: Minutes of May 10, 2022, meeting approved as written.

Financial Report—MaryBeth (for John McGillian): Liberty Bank balance is $1,583.18—deposits of $150; withdrawal of $1,000—payment to secretary. PayPal balance is $1,750.39—donation of $100; withdrawal of $100—May/June Zoom payments @ $50 each. Willard: The ICB has very few expenses and we accept contributions—by check or through PayPal—at any time.

George deMenil—Housing & Peconic Bay initiative: The proposal is to increase the property transfer tax from 2% to 2.5%, the proceeds of the increase to be used in the Peconic Bay Communities toward affordable housing. This is an important issue. The ICB has formed a committee to draft a proposal that would be presented to the Town of Southold and would specify how these funds might be applied on Fishers Island. The members of the committee are myself, Willard, Staley, Ellen Harvey, Richard Miller and Gina Scumaci. Fishers Island has contributed to the Peconic Bay Fund for many years, and very little of these funds have been allocated back to Fishers Island. [George’s internet faded, and Willard resumed the report.] Willard: This proposed tax will be voted on by the Town of Southold; they will either approve it or not. It is a very narrow bill that came out of the legislature. George asked Dick Miller to join the committee because of his legal experience.
