A discussion of the status and future of Pike County economics will be led by Michael Sullivan, Executive Director of Pike County Economic Development Authority, and Katrina Mancini, Customer Affairs Manager at Corning Natural Gas Holding at a breakfast at the Tom Quick Inn on Oct. 13.
Topics will include population growth, where new residents are coming from, recovery from the 2010-2016 downturn, why Pike County is a fast-growing county. Discussion will also address business activities, measures of the local economy, opportunities, new solicitations and why New York businesses will be looking at Pennsylvania.
Also on the agenda will be a“Smarter NY Energy” analysis, a look at the “Get me a Wegmans” notion, graphics about commuters, jobs, infrastructure needs of the county, the importance of local zoning, wages, 2021 expenditures per household, apartments, shopping, services, new taxes and how to calculate them.
A focus of discussion will be the rise of mandated green energy programs. In New York, a law was passed to do away with fossil fuels entirely; further, it includes a goal of full reliance on electricity for homes and businesses. Most New Yorkers are not aware of this law, or the history of similar laws tried elsewhere. In recent days, the sale of internal combustion engines has been outlawed in several US states by the year 2035. What does this mean to our future? Is it wise? How will it impact our lives and our businesses? Katrina Mancini will explore this question.
