Ainsworth told the board if the village cannot meet its budget, the state could come in and take over or the board could ask the state to take over. Macri said the village should have an information packet on what would be involved if this were to become necessary.
How disfunctional can this village board be? We keep re-electing this board for what? To be taken over by the state. Between whats happening in the school district and the village budgets we are sure to be the laughing stock of the valley.Or is is too late? Where are the visionaries and real leaders we need? We need a board with sound fiscal management skills, not a board that listens to a few crybabies(A.K.A. Taxpayers). Make tough decisions, not friends! What a shame we have become. We were once the pride of the valley, now a bankrupt dump. We need a complete change and new direction in our board. Merry Christmas.

How about quit wasting our money on fighting the new jail, take the money from the county, pay off some debt, get in a more comfortable position. Then watch the spending, PROBLEM SOLVED.

Why does Herkimer fight everybody on everything?

Look at Ilion, they just raised their bond rating and are projecting a $700,000. budget surplus. Maybe we should have their Village Clerk come over and give lessons?
