I understand the facilities at Ilion are the best in the valley.What will Herkimer gain with this merger? Not a thing! Look it over. Ilion gets the high school and Ilion business' will benefit. The high school draws in the majority of the sporting and drama/music events. Its interesting that we are the county seat and won't even have a high school! Not to mention that so many of the people pushing this down your throat are from Ilion. Maybe they think if they get the high school they can get a grocery store which they are currently dependent on Herkimer for! Herkimer needs to retain their own high school, fix their problems, and not take on the problems and debts of 2 other districts. This school system is essential to the small part of what is left of our community!
We gain better opportunities for our kids educational futures.
We are the county seat and if I had to do it again I wouldn't buy a home here. We are in terrible shape. Just what do we have that you're so proud of, Main St.?
