The New York State Department of Environmental Conservation held a public hearing Wednesday at the Belleayre Ski Center in the Catskills. The hearing, which attracted a few hundred people, focused on two proposals and their cumulative impacts.
A national environmental action group is sending a letter to New York state environmental regulators. An attorney for the group says more time is needed to comment on a modified proposal of The Belleayre Resort and plans for the Belleayre Mountain Ski Center.
ALBANY – Saying “financial issues persist,” State Comptroller Thomas DiNapoli said Wednesday that his office will conduct a full financial audit of the Olympic Regional Development Authority, especially in light of the agency taking over the Catskills-based Belleayre Mountain Ski Center.
DiNapoli said his office will examine selected financial management practices related to payroll, procurement and other areas.
