NYS Senate Passes Small Business Savings Account Bill

The New York State Senate passed legislation last week to create Small Business Savings Accounts for companies that have 50 employees or less - true small businesses. The proposed bill, now in its third year of being passed through the Senate, has the support of local chambers of commerce and is a priority of the 90 member LI Lobby Coalition.

The bill (S4376A) titled Savings Accounts for a Variable Economy (SAVE), sponsored by Senator Jack Martins, would allow small businesses to make contributions into a small business tax-deferred savings account which can be withdrawn for limited purposes and usage. More than 170,000 small businesses were lost after the economic downturn of 2008 and many that survived are still having trouble obtaining loans and credit to help them stay open. This bill seeks to serve as a remedy for the challenges that small businesses face accessing credit to pay their bills by encouraging them to put money into a special savings account that can be used tax-free in times of economic hardship, for the purposes of job retention or creation, and

during natural disasters. Monies in such an account may be withdrawn tax free during those times to ease the burden to the businesses and their employees. “Small businesses provide jobs and services to local residents and revenue for our economy.  When they stop hiring, lay off employees or close down entirely, the affect is felt across the economy and throughout the community.  This legislation would help them save money so they can save jobs during the hard times.  The Assembly should join the Senate in passing this legislation to help small businesses save jobs,” said Senator Martins, Chairman of the Senate’s Labor Committee. 

Small businesses would be able to contribute ten percent of their gross profits annually to the savings account. In times of economic hardship, natural disaster or when there is a need to add or retain jobs, withdrawals could be made from the account. Withdrawals made under the provisions of the bill would not be taxed, whereas withdrawals that are not qualified or using funds in the account as security on a loan would be taxable.   “This milestone, passing the Small Business Savings Accounts, will help small business across the state, especially on Long Island, to have the same benefit individuals have on their personal IRA's,” said Robert Fonti, Suffolk Co-Chair, Long Island Business Council and Co-Chair, Suffolk County Alliance of Chambers of Commerce.

After Superstorm Sandy and the August urban floods that affected Long Island in 2014, many Long Island small businesses were unable to recover quickly- if at all- due to a lack of available funding, low insurance payouts, or not having proper insurance coverage. Allowing businesses to invest in their resilience, whether it is to recover from natural or economic disaster, can only help to prevent small businesses and their employees from the effects of unforeseen circumstances, and to invest in their growth.

The Assembly version of the bill, sponsored by Assemblyman Levine, has twenty five bipartisan co-sponsors and is currently recommitted to the Ways and Means committee with hopes that it will be brought to the floor for a vote. You can read the entire bill here.

Potential for luxury apartment rentals in Amityville

A new luxury apartment complex with approximately 115 residential units may be built in Amityville close to the town’s Long Island Railroad station. The creation of the building depends upon whether or not town legislators vote to approve a proposal to rezone the site it would be constructed upon. A proposal was introduced by Village Trustee Nick Lalota that would transform the site into a transit-oriented zone. If the rezoning is approved, properties, primarily intended for apartment buildings, in excess of 2 acres and within 400 feet of the Amityville LIRR station would be allowed.

The project would be a joint venture between developer Anthony Bartone and Landtek, a New York-based general contractor specializing in sports facility design and construction, to increase the number of high end apartments present in the area. Bartone claims that, if permitted, the new luxury apartments would have a Victorian look in order to maintain the preexisting aesthetics of the village.

A luxury development, equipped with pools, common areas, conference rooms and leisure centers with amenities such as pool tables would go a long way in increasing the property values within the adjacent area, according to Lalota. While many welcome the possible addition of luxury apartments in their neighborhood, there was some hesitance on the part of local residents surprised by the high cost of rent associated with living in the potential development. People of this persuasion insist that any new apartments located in such proximity to the LIRR station should have lower rent prices so that more people have the option to live close to convenient mass transit.

A public hearing on Lalota’s legislation for a transit-oriented zone is expected to be held in August.

East End Arts' Street Painting Festival

East End Arts’ held their 20th street painting festival on Sunday. Around one hundred artists were featured at the event, during which they created large squares of chalk art along downtown Riverhead’s Main Street. Many local businesses sponsored the artists’ squares for anywhere between $150 and $350. Other community members were able to paint a square of their own for $20.

The unique and untraditional medium allows the festival to differentiate itself from other art events in the region. Eli Fishman, who drew an octopus inspired by his job at the Riverhead Aquarium, said that the chalk is very “fluid”, making it easy to blend colors during the creation of the masterpieces.

A mixture of newcomers and veterans turned out for the festival, which East End Arts executive director Pat Snyder said has grown tremendously since it began along the shores of the Peconic River. She stressed that today, the event is “about supporting the arts and raising awareness about the power of the arts to raise up the community”. The event caters to all ages; as one artist said “It’s such a family-friendly event. It’s a wonderful way to improve downtown Riverhead.” Another participant in the festival, likened the event to performance art due to the large number of people who come just to watch the artists work.

The festival attracted people from all over the island, including Patchogue, Farmingdale, Massapequa and Babylon. Vendors set up along the edges of Main Street offered crafts and other merchandise to the event’s spectators.
