Nothing gets done to these people. Look at Shelby, Yates, and Ridgeway. They have Incompetent book keepers, Dirty lawyers, Corrupt and stupid town super visors and councilmen. The stae does nothing to them The people have demanded resignations of some of these people and they are rallied around. They all still have their jobs and no one runs against them and they get reelected.

This is going on all over the state. These things or people you trust to run your government rip you off, take care of all their friends and family, get all the contracts steered to them. buy materials from each other, patronize each others businesses for personal gain. They get grants for each other. Oh they love grants.

They love to grow government. You now why because you let them. You don't go to meetings , you don't write letters to the editor and you don't run for office. I know because i go to meetings and i'm usually the only one there. Get involved. Stop there criminals. The comptroller does nothing to them. Go on see through NY and see what these people make http://seethroughny.net/ Go on open book ny http://www.openbooknewyork.com/ Look at the audits all over the state. look at what hey spend. No you will understand why they are in to government. To rip you off and take your money. Only you can stop it. Citizen ME

More corruption and money mismanagement was found in the recent audit of the towns payroll. Is it any wonder the town is in financial trouble? Someone should be held accountable for all the errors found by the towns payroll clerk. Thousands of dollars were paid out and no one has their behind on the chopping block, anywhere else but Saltville heads would roll.

One more meeting of childlike behavior. We the citizens want to be invited to the big bar-b-q that the new water/sewer are throwing for the council. How much will that costs us? I can't believe we are stuck for 5 years.

Taking effect on July 1, 2013 is HB 1332: Local government audit.
In it it says this allows a local government body to request an audit from the Auditor of Public Accounting at any time upon a majority vote. With the expense of the audit to be borne by the locality.
Come on council grow a pair. Get our money back. Quit sending it to France via our water/sewer bills.

We need a dream team... publicly selected to run against and win... people who we know are out for the benefit and welfare of our people. Select family's have gotten rich off of our towns poverty. It disgusts me.. they have taught their children the ropes, and now their children are jumping in the game and playing us too... spoiled as they are, their appetites are only going to get bigger. They steal from us and think they have the right to do so.. they think they are better people. I am ready to do something about it... how bout you?

You're just like the rest, sit around and bitch.When push comes to shove you'd rather sit back and let someone else do it. People bitch about the mayor and his allegded shady background.But you dummies voted him in.

WTH.. did I piss in your cheerios? You don't know me, and if you did you would think twice about talking to me that way. I don't sit around and bitch. I have an opinion, and it is my right to state it. Just as it is your right to state yours... I didn't vote anyone in.. I'm county. You have to live in town to vote. I am far from dumb! I have a college degree and graduated with a 3.5GPA. As far as a shady background... we all have them. No one here has a clean closet. I could care less what someone has done in their past! All people can be redeemed, all people should have the chance to redeem themselves if they choose. I know the mayor, he's not a perfect person, but I'm not judging him based upon his past or any local rumors... I think his hands are tied by council... they are the true problem. Keep following me around if you have to, post on everything I say. I'm not scared of you. You don't shake my confidence. I will continue to post as I see fit.
Collusion

Attend a couple of town council meetings and see for yourself !

You will quickly see why honset and educated people do not want to serve with these idiots !

A new word for those idiots serving today !

Collusion - Secret cooperation between people in order to do something illegal or underhanded.

Examples:
Motion to suspend annual audits !
Motion to suspend Mayor's salary !
Motion to outsource water treatment !

This practice is ILLEGAL !

How about outsourcing this sorry town council ?

The only way things are going to change is if we get and educated people in the council seats. We dont want just a few.. we want them all! The only way to do that would be to pre-select enough folks with a common agenda to run against them, and with any luck, we will outnumber them in the polls. I think the folks around here understand the corrupt nature of town politics. I think they feel as if they can do nothing about it. It would only take an empowered few to get the ball rolling! Just think of what we could do for this town with the right folks running it!

Honest and with common sense would be better. I've saw a lot of educated fools and we have too many on council now.
