So wrong..... get the story rite before you publish. It was the old school. They need to tear it down. Somebody is going to get hurt or killed in there. It is an eye sore. I give a crap who owns it or how they do it, tear it down. The Town Board needs to get a set and do it. Teh Town Board is a joke along with the Town Supervisor. Is the Town ran by Bailey's. Town Supervisor, Fire Chief, Dog catcher. They think they are so innocent and 2 of the Bailey kids are always in trouble. 1 is always stealing or drug dealing. Come wake up.... And the Fire Department can't keep equipment, it is stolen all the time. Get rid of the Bailey's and problem solved. Wow, I guess I have a gripe. I have been a resident for 40 yrs and seen it all first hand. I have been to the Town Board meetings and the Fire Department meetings. All a joke, Bailey's do no wrong... hahaha....

Couple things with your "Gripe". Name a better town supervisor? As far as the town board there hands are tied, the county has Final say! Name a better Fire chief and there has been some, when they had that position the department almost went bankrupt! If you think you can do better why don't you run for town supervisor, or town council, or join the fire dept. you would think that if they did such a bad job they wouldn't get re-elected every year!! Because its the people who put you in or take you out and it seems to me the people have no "Gripe"! Everyone makes mistakes and everyone has skeletons in there closet! Including YOU!

It seems to me like the reason that you have a "gripe" is because you use to belong to the fire dept and the town board. How is it the Baileys fault that you arent part of either anymore? Last I knew town board members and the supervisor were voted in by the towns people. Do you want to be the dog catcher? Do you have the love for animals that Donna has and the dediction to do what she does? As for the Baileys kids always being in trouble... What about the rest of the hoodlums in this town? I have never heard of either one of them being a drug dealer. There are kids and adults in this town breaking the law everyday and doing way worse then them but apparently in your hatred filled mind for the Baileys thats ok. What are you a saint and never done anything wrong or made a mistake? Before you start digging crap out of others peoples closets and backyards.... take a good hard look at your own because Im sure that they are filled to the brim!!

I love how people bad mouth a group of volunteers, do you think you can do better? As far as Chief Bailey I don't know him that well but he has brought in my family members and was a saint! I have been involved in this town for 35 years and since I can remember Mike Bailey is the best supervisor yes he has his flaws like the Sara Peary thing! But he is here for the towns people and hasn't raised taxes much since he started in office! As far as the town council goes I think you have a pretty good board of people retired superintendent, teachers aid, construction/bus driver, and prison guard, I think that is a very well rounded off group of people! And I have been to the town board meeting Mr. Baileys and the Town Boards hands are tied when it comes to the old school, the county will not take possession of it, so that means the town can not get it! I am pretty concerned that you have a gripe with the Baileys, like I said I don't know the family that well but I do not see anyone else stepping up to run for town supervisor or fire chief, or dog catcher! I think they all do a good job and people should not bad mouth the people who actually do care and try to make changes!
