Update on Municipal Annexation Litigation
 On November 5, 2015, Supreme Court Justice Francesca E. Connolly granted a motion filed by the municipal petitioners to prevent the annexation of 164 acres of land in the Town of Monroe into the Village of Kiryas Joel pending the outcome of the municipalities’ lawsuit challenging the annexation as unlawful. The Court allowed the annexation special election on November 9th to proceed, but regardless of the outcome of the vote, prevented the 164 acres at issue from being transferred from the Town to the Village until the litigation is resolved. It is anticipated that it will take several months for the litigation to reach its conclusion.

The municipalities filed their motion to maintain the status quo (no annexation) while their lawsuit was pending and to avoid having to reverse changes that would have occurred if the annexation had taken place but was later found to have been illegal. The Court issued its ruling Thursday evening after hearing argument from the lawyers for the municipalities, Kiryas Joel, the Town of Monroe and the involved landowners on Thursday morning.
Information for Mountainville Residents on Private Wells
Residents of the Mountainville area of the Town of Cornwall using private wells who are concerned over potential impacts of the proposed use of Mountainville Well No. 1 by the Village of Kiryas Joel are encouraged to contact the office of the Town Supervisor at: Attn: Randolph S. Clark, Supervisor, 183 Main Street, Cornwall, New York 12518, Tel No. (845) 534-3760, e-mail rclark@cornwallny.gov.
KJ Annexation Law Suit
Today the Village of South Blooming Grove, Town of Blooming Grove, Village of Monroe, Village of Woodbury, Town of Woodbury, Village of Harriman, Village of Cornwall on Hudson, Town of Cornwall, County of Orange (on behalf of itself and Orange County Sewer District No. 1), Town of Chester, Monroe Joint Fire District and the Black Rock Fish and Game Club of Cornwall, Inc. plans to file a petition in the KJ Annexation suit.

Supervisor Clark says “the Town of Cornwall's concerns regarding the proposed annexation of land from the Town of Monroe into the Village of Kiryas Joel are based chiefly upon the proposed use of wells in the Town of Cornwall as a water source. It is the Town's belief that the SEQRA review conducted in regard to environmental impacts on water resources was fundamentally flawed and inadequate. The Town of Cornwall has joined in the coalition municipalities bringing this law suit in order to protect the integrity of the Town's water resources”.
