PUTNAM ARTS COUNCIL GRANTS $28,900 in 2013 TO PUTNAM COUNTY ARTISTS AND CULTURAL PRESENTERS THROUGH ITS ARTS LINK PROGRAM

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE  – January 23, 2013
Contact: Putnam Arts Council, Mahopac @ 845.803.8622

 PUTNAM ARTS COUNCIL GRANTS $28,900 in 2013
TO PUTNAM COUNTY ARTISTS AND
CULTURAL PRESENTERS
THROUGH ITS ARTS LINK PROGRAM

 

The Putnam Arts Council is pleased to announce that it has re-granted $28,900 to nineteen non-profit organizations to support cultural programs and services that will take place in Putnam County in 2013. New this year, the Program has also funded two Arts in Education matching grants to an individual artist partnering with the Mahopac School District. 

The Arts Link community regrant program is managed and monitored by the Putnam Arts Council and provides funding to artists, arts organizations and community non-profits, facilitating quality arts projects and activities throughout Putnam County.  The goals of the program include: supporting programs that enrich the quality of life for County residents, expanding opportunities for artists and arts organizations and developing audiences for the arts.

The Arts Link Program is comprised of a combination of funds received through the NYS Council on the Arts with support from Governor Andrew Cuomo and the NYS Legislature and funds received from Putnam County Government.

Each year, a panel comprised of artists, educators, business and community members, reviews the many requests submitted by local arts groups through the Putnam Arts Council.  The panel then recommends funding for the projects it feels reach a broad audience, generate the most benefit to the community and support the professional development of artists and arts groups.  The recommendations are then submitted to the Board of the Putnam Arts Council for their approval.  County funded grant recommendations also need to be approved by the Putnam County Legislature.

The 2013 Arts Link recipients are:

ELECTRONIC WASTE DISPOSAL

ELECTRONIC WASTE DISPOSAL

For several years Putnam County has been providing residents with a convenient solution to electronic waste (e-waste) disposal.  Recently the County was notified that the contractor providing collection would no longer be able to do this.  While an alternate means of collection is being researched, the Department of Environmental Conservation offers the following recommendations:

Guidance for Consumers of Covered Electronic Equipment

The NYS Electronic Equipment Recycling and Reuse Act (PDF) (39 kB), requires manufacturers to provide free and convenient recycling of electronic waste to most consumers in the state. It was signed into law by the Governor on May 28, 2010.

Recycle Your Electronic Waste in Three Easy Steps:

  1. Go to DEC’s list of electronic equipment manufacturers registered in NYS, to find manufacturers, their brands of covered electronic equipment, websites and toll-free telephone numbers.
  2. Find the manufacturer’s brand of equipment you wish to recycle, and click on that manufacturer’s website link or call its listed toll-free telephone number.
  3. Follow the specific instructions listed on the manufacturer’s website or provided over the telephone. The manufacturer will provide information on how to recycle your equipment, free of charge.

State law prohibits curbside collection of e-waste, so your waste hauler will be unable to pick it up with other waste or recyclables.

Further information may be found at www.dec.ny.gov/chemical/66827.html.

Putnam County Executive MaryEllen Odell, state Sen. Gregory Ball, Assemblyman Steve Katz, and several additional county officials will accompany Putnam County Clerk Dennis J. Sant at a 12 noon press conference held in the upstairs courtroom of the Historic County Courthouse, 44 Gleneida Avenue, Carmel, NY on Thursday, January 3.

Parental Consent Now Required for Body Piercing of Minors

Parental Consent Now Required for Body Piercing of Minors

The potential risks linked to body piercing have prompted New York State Department of Health (NYSDOH) officials to change public health law.

All body piercing of minors (under 18 years of age), with the exception of ear piercing, now requires written consent (NYSDOH Form 5072) from a parent or legal guardian, signed in the presence of the body piercing studio owner or body piercing specialist.
