It would appear to me that the issue of the Village and Towns consolidating would be dead! Many things learne at the meeting of the former Senaca Falls Mayor and Administrator, mostly that is you are attempting to consolidate Politicians need to have an open mind and no agenda. This is not the case for the Village officials. Look for a move for dissolusion to be coming shortly.

This was the agenda of the comprehensive plan from the very beginning. They will listen to no one. They finally have all their ducks in a row and all their stooges are on board. They will fail at this like they have failed all along. The problem will be that once they move forward there is no reversing. There will be no savings and the cost to taxpayers will only increase. These are inept foolish leaders that will bring ruin. Others can see it, they never will.

Did you see in the paper tonight Shelby Ridgeway and Medina all pointing the finger at one another. Picking at one another to quote Toussaint. Ha Ha Ha Ha Ha i am laughing my rear off at you stupid donkeys. Look in the mirror fools you are all to blame. Now the state is cutting funds. I'm really going to laugh when it all collapses because you kept growing your governments and spending like fools. I hope the people in your towns throw you all out on your asses next election when you tell them you have to raise taxes.. Ha Ha Ha no matter what you come up it with it will still be stupid and wont work because your all idiots in a big circle jerk.

When did you run for election? What position were you elected to serve? Or...do you prefer to be critical of others' opinions?

On could only hope that the recall would happen. It won't...and it will be a few more years of his agenda.

I see Andy wants to get rid of the Village DPW and have the Towns plow the streets. And he claims the Fire Department is in a deficit due to the ambulance, funny that less than 2 months ago the JR reported revenue of in excess of 800,000. a year. I don't see the cooralation here. The department costs less than the FD's in both Townships combined and answers more calls, not sure but I think Andy won't be happy until he has made Medina a thing of the past with no real forsite of being its Mayor. John Kennedy and maybe even Don must be rolling over in there graves god bless their soles!

Consolidation is not dead. The only way to change things is to get out and vote. If you got enough names on a petition you could make the consolidation issue a public vote and take it out of the hands of elected officials.

Yes but you will need all new people to get elected. Of a 21st century mindset If the same people are in charge that have been for the last decade only failure will result

Wont work unless everything was privatized. There needs to be a profit incentive. These people running things now don't have to be frugal because its other peoples money and waste it they do. They are damaged goods and can never be trusted with the public's money again.

What is the biggest cost of government , school districts anything that relies on the tax payers for funding? Then you tell me. What ever public employees are making now cut it in half and apply raises to similar public sector jobs.

Sounds like you are one of those bubbas that didn't finish high school and one of your relatives pulled you into a Guberment job. Many of the Tax payer jobs are not needed especially the Toll Collector. That was paid off long ago and like most Gubernment jobs and programs have a eternal life span to keep the connected uneducated in a job.
