You must work for Obama. Failed to mention that home sales are down 63% in Herkimer! Like I said your population is dropping and no one is moving there.

Context buddy....context. The same market trend report also says the 13350 zip code only sold 4 houses in the first 6 months...down 63.6% vs. 2012. No population boom there. Mohawk's median sales price is up 67.4%, but only 1 house was sold. Ilion sold a house per month in 6, but someone buying up low end real estate is not necessarily a bad thing. Because so few homes are sold, none of this means anything other than real estate in the valley has little value.

Who is whining? Couldn't be anymore happier that Herkimer voted it down, we got exactly what we wanted, no Herkimer, no layoffs, no cuts to ANYTHING, and plenty of funds over the next 15 years to keep us going! This was definitely the best case scenario for Ilion and Mohawk.

We got what we wanted. The money we didn't get was money for you. Now...with all your intelligence and vision for the future I am certain Herkimerís school and village will excel.

To maintain your wonderful existence year to year, you will need no less than the same money from the state, no inflation and 11 retiree's.

With all this going for you it is difficult not to brag.

Herkimer voted no and we dodged National grid. What's that bill look like?

We got what we wanted too - a nice village with its own school system. Although not perfect at least it's part of our community and we held on to that. A merged district would have been a mess and money would not have solved the problem. You'll see. It's already starting at Jarvis. Not enough room in the cafeteria, not enough room in auditorium, they admitted nobody thought about where parents would drop off their kids because that question never came up before, nobody knows what to do with the kids who are walkers, etc. Just vote yes and we'll get the money and everything else will fall into place. Wrong! Please stop bashing us. Enjoy your new stirred school district and the money that will get wasted or maybe even skimmed, and let us enjoy our traditional community school.

I don't think we were the ones bashing? We all know there is going to be a few bugs to be worked out. They'll find solutions to that small stuff you mentioned and they kids will enjoy all the benefits within a traditional school e.g. academics, music, and sports. By the way, the district's size is not that big, a little smaller than Oneida, Camden, and Chittenango; and roughly the same size Ilion was 25 years ago. It makes me laugh how all the adults in Herkimer care about the Ilion-Mohawk merger, but to the people it effects the most (Ilion-Mohawk kids), are excited about their future.

How much of the 4,4 million go to improving education. My bet is most of it will go directly to salary increases for the same teachers and administrators who were failing our kids in the first place.Is it true Jarvis is being closed? Maybe the Mohawk board members can vote this down before it happens, Oh wait, they have no say because Ilion controls the majority of the newly formed district.
Pure genius way to go........Go THUNDER!!!!!!!!!!

Mohawk controls the majority of the board, numbers are 5-4 Ilion residents to Mohawk residents; however, one of the Ilion residents was born and raised in Mohawk, and his kids have always gone to Mohawk. Still don't understand why you care? The kids appear to be fine with everything.

Maybe that's why the big $250,000 house on German St just sold last week? I'm telling you, good families want a traditional normal school in its own community. And not many cuts were made. Ilion & Mohawk merging was actually good for the village of Herkimer. Good job no voters. You saved your community and made it more appealing because the neighboring communities don't have that traditional school system anymore and never again will.

Take a look around, Central Valley is more of the traditional school system than they were. Most schools throughout the state have separate middle schools.

Selling 5-6 homes in a zip code in 6 months is not a movement. It is a beautiful home that would sell for twice that in other zip codes in half the time. The cost of remodeling (remodeling that home was not free) and maintaining a home does not vary much from locale to locale, but the cash flow difference at resale is huge.
After all of the investment, thought, and care made in remodeling that home, only getting $250,000 for it is not a sign of a competitive market with lots of bidders.
