Dryden doesn't have a cash cow power plant to gouge with taxes, nor does Homer or Newfield. The fact is, a large tax tenant like the power plant uses virtually no town resources, but the tax revenue is used to grow bigger government spending. When that cow dies, as this plant is doing, the solution is not a bail out by others, it is to cut your spending and live as Dryden, TRumansburg, etc have done all these years: within their means.
