I believe that the new board is off to a good start. The amount that has been paid from our tax dollars for cell phones is outrageous! Over a 3 month period $4600. was expended for cell phones! Meanwhile we are loosing our Middle School and so much more. That is another story!
The Clerk-Treasurer is not qualified to do her job. The Administer is not qualified as an administer, nor has he been 'administrating' anything. This is evidenced by the Comptrollers Office Audit Report, which you can find a link to read the report at dansvilleny.us. I urge you to read the full report to see what a mess the village is in. Also read the Village meeting minutes which are also on the Village web site.
I believe we should start by replacing the Clerk- Treasurer with a qualified individual. She should be able to generate meaningful financial reports. We shouldn't have to pay an outside person to do this. This SHOULD be the Clerk/Treasurer's job.....overseen by the administrator. I also think that we should immediately eliminate the Administrator position. He has been bleeding this Village dry for many years. Take his vehicle, cell phone, Village gas card, enormous pay, personal use of Village manpower and materials, etc.
Our Water/Sewer rates are increasing again. Part of the increase is due to mismanagement of our tax dollars. WE THE PEOPLE will again, have to pay for the screw ups of the officials we entrusted.
I have been embarrassed to say I live in Dansville because of the shenanigans of prior Village Officials. I hope to one day again be proud of the Village I live in!
