Why is it the streets in the Village during the winter time seem as though they aren't plowed! Is it because the Mayor is trying to make the DPW look bad to get rid of this department?

Nah, it isn't the DPW he would like to get rid of, it's the fire department. You see, they make enough money from the ambulance cases that they pay for most of the department. That makes Andy look bad because he doesn't have any control over that. He would love to 'consolidate' the fire department with something else...but there isn't anything else in the county to consolidate it with. That is his conundrum.

And by the way, before there was ambulance service the fire department was a big drain on the budget. Now that the ambulance brings in cash the fire department require less money from the village budget to operate. So what happened to all the money that was previously used by the fire department? What is he using that money for now?? We certainly haven't seen a reduction in our taxes. After all, we are the most taxed municipality in the COUNTRY as compared to property values.

Schubel and Meyer have their tentacles in everything in this county. They know how to get their hands on everyone else money to get what they want. Very power hungry. Don't let Andy's looks fool you.

Perhpas there just isn't enough money in the budget for salt and plowing. Everyone knows that the roads always get much clearer right after you cross over the Orleans County Border into Monroe County. They have the money and the jobs. Orleans County has the Highest un-employment rate in NYS. You really cannot expect to have clean roads, when there is no money and no jobs. Want answers, ask your Local politicians for the answers to the County Problems. That is the source.

There is plenty of money to buy the legislature and her husbands deicing products. The husband claims every time it snows its raining dollars. There are mountains of salt left over from last year. Maybe the employees aren't paid enough or the brand new equipment is malfunctioning... cough cough choke barf barf. I hear the county is broke, cutting jobs, down sizing departments but created a 50,000 slush fund with half of that amount being pushed by a woman Legislature with no discussion going to someone named Keppler.

There are plenty of jobs in the county. Just do not have applicants that can pass drug tests. The state plows the main roads, makes no damn difference which county your in. Have some brains, pay attention in school and stop using drugs.
