New York State Agricultural Mediation Program

Agricultural mediation is a tool for farmers and others in the agricultural community to communicate clearly, negotiate effectively, and to find fair and workable solutions. Decisions are made by the people directly involved, and not by mediators or other outside authorities.

NYSAMP services are usually free and always affordable, thanks to the generous support of our funders and the dispute resolution community.

Livingston County Planning: Conesus Lake Watershed Management

Conesus Lake is a precious resource. Without it, life in the six towns within its watershed (Livonia, Conesus, Springwater, Geneseo, Groveland, and Sparta) would be diminished in many ways. Shoreline residents of Conesus Lake rely on the Lake to enhance their quality of life, for recreation and to maintain their property values. Other Livingston County residents rely on the Lake as a source of drinking water as well as for recreation. Conesus Lake is a precious resource that we cannot afford to degrade.

New York State:
NYS Register
The weekly State Register was first published in April 1979 pursuant to the State Administrative Procedure Act. The weekly State Register plays a central role in New York’s rule making process. It contains newly proposed amendments to state agency rules and provides interested parties an opportunity to comment on actions before a rule is permanently adopted.

Included in each issue of the weekly State Register is an Action Pending Index listing all proposed rules which are currently being considered for adoption. A proposed rule is added to the index when the notice of proposed rule making is first published. A proposed rule is removed when any of the following occur: (1) the proposal is adopted as a permanent rule; (2) the proposal is rejected and withdrawn from consideration or (3) the proposal expires.

When an agency schedules hearings regarding a rule making, the dates, times and locations can be found in the Rule Making Calendar. The results of periodic Rule Review of agency rules are published in the weekly State Register as received. Regulatory Agendas listing amendments that agencies are considering to propose are published in January and June.

In addition to rule making activities, the weekly State Register contains certain other documents, including Public Notices prepared by state agencies and municipalities; Executive Orders; Opinions of the Attorney General; Court Notices; Availability of State and Federal Funds; Security Offerings and Notices to Bidders.

Whether it's a chair, a fax machine, piano or an old door, feel free to post it. Or maybe your looking to acquire something yourself. Nonprofit groups are also welcome to participate!
