Kyle Adams reports in The Daily Mail state Senator Cecilia Tkaczyk (KAT-chik) visited Catskill Wed., Apr. 10, and unveiled several economic development initiatives aimed at supporting farms and small businesses. The first-term senator's legislative package includes a focus on expanded broadband access in rural and under-served areas and a program of loans and grants to support small farm modernization and disaster relief. Tkzczyk said, “We need to help businesses who are here already be successful and we need to get more entrepreneurs into Greene County and more farmers growing." Her broadband bill would encourage the expansion of high speed internet by awarding tax credits to companies that install new broadband service. The two farm bills would help channel capital to small farms for the purchase of new equipment and to replace crops lost as a result of natural disasters. Tkaczyk presented her ideas to a group of Greene County officials and business leaders, including Greene County Legislature Chairman Wayne Speenburgh and Catskill Village President and Greene County Legislator Vincent Seeley.
