I'm not a resident of Clay, but I hope the town residents have the guts to do what's right and have the sheriffs do the patrolling. All the statements that the sheriffs wont do the same policing as the local police is just pure bovine scatology. It's just scare tactics by people who are big fish in a small pond. They may not be so big in a big pond ...
We have too many layers of government, in NY. I wish my town/village would do the same.

I think it's great that the Clay Town Board is moving forward with its plan to abolish the Police Department and consolidate with the Onondaga Sherriff's Department. There is no need for duplication of effort. It will also serve to weed out some of the poorer members of the Clay police department while allowing the high quality officers to shine.

I absolutely agree, far to many layers of government. We are going to have to start doing things like this if we want to get a handle on property taxes.

Next they should roll Van Buren and Lysander into B'ville.
