Couldn't get rid of the county home, so now it's the dunkirk airport? If edwards really wants to rid the county of services that cost the taxpayers the most. Lets get rid of the sheriffs dept.I'll bet we can get 100k for the boat in the dunkirk harbour. The only sheriffs we gotta have are the ones at the county jail and court. The road patrols main focus is DWI , pot and traffic infractions. Well that is unless you a cop or buddies with one.

Your crazy dude! If we got rid of all the county departments that didn't make money. We would only have the taxation and the DMV.

Come on hose, don't try to fill us with your cosmik debri.You can't blame edwards for trying to cut costs.I have a better idea. Sell the county fair grounds. Hell no one goes there anyway. First annex it to the west town of dunkirk to avoid the high city taxes. You could either sell it whole to the highest bidder to develop. Or turn it into a bunch of nice size building lots. Run city water and sewer to it and add some paper streets. Heck you can even name a street or two after me! LOL

The county does not own the fair grounds. The fair Association does. Tax exempt.

The fair association run the grounds per 1 dollar lease.They by contract are suppose too give the county a yearly statement. They're stock is availible but worthless. The fair association gets money from the harness racing association still. Why don't you OTB start harness racing there and then of course slot machines?That would make more money than any idea of edwards or the jammer.

Ok enough IS enough. It is time to do one of two things, everyone call the NYS Chair of The Republican Party and endorse lil Greggy Edwrads for Governor-getting him out of our county. O sell him. Why is it lil Greggy poo wants to sell north county real property? Nothing in Jametsown area or is it all so very valuable to him and his pals. Just a short note that we all know is true, most of the county money is in the northern part of the county. This refers to people of financial substance.
EDWARDS For Governor, "The man not the myth", can we imagine for a moment what he will sell as Governor. Honestly, the way things are he will put up a blue light like KMart used to and have a going out of business sale.

The County Home AND the airports should be sold. Greg Edwards is doing what any good leader should do which is look at all options. hose4,ou lack the intellect to properly discuss this issue. Perhaps you should just stick to reading.

He's the best thing we got? Thats scary, why did he put in gas well we can't use? By the way , with all the federal money the airport has received in the last 12 years. I gotta belive the federal govt. had strings attached to that money. It's the same man who promised days before his election "NOT FOR SALE". I think he means well, but says things before the due dillagnce is done.

The only things that make money for the county are the real propety tax dept and maybe the dmv. So lets get rid of all the other services then?

The 2 businesses that the county own that are being discussed are the county home and air port. If they dont make money for the county, why is the county even involved? The county home would be bought by a private individual, and it would stay running. The air port, how many county residents even know where it is located?

What a novel idea, the people that use it pay for it! I've never used it so why has my taxes paid for it? Don't tell me the local businesses us it and won't be here if the airport isn't here. Most businesses are gone. They want an airport? Buy ONE!
taxes are too high

Please stop whinning about high property taxes unless you are willing to start selling things. Edwards is doing the right thing trying to cut back. Of course the workers at the Home are upset they might lose out on their big pensions, vacation pay. sick days and excellent health insurance I probably would too, but the bottom line is the rest of us cannot afford for them to have all these perks as we are struggling to put food on the table. Mr Edwards PLEASE do not give up and keep trying to sell everythng you can. We want to keep our house!! Wake up people read the paper how many peole are in the tax section because they are struggling to pay their taxes, does anyone really care that they are losing their home? Every year there are hundreds of people in there. With Ni Mo. petri's carrage house, and others leaving there will be alot more names added. This is why this area continues to go down hill because everyone wants changes but are unwilling to let them happen. There is nothing left here people. Find another person to sell this home to and get rid of it!!!
