Dissolving village gives more control to Albany

Posted 7 December 2014 at 12:00 am


I read the paper from One Medina. They did have a few good points. I believe that we need to save taxpayers money. However, we also need to keep local control of our business.

The reason that the state wants these villages and towns to merge is to have more control in Albany. It may sound good right now, but in a few years I do not think we want our problems solved in Albany.

If our goal is to save us taxpayers’ money, why can’t we do it ourselves? Tighten our belts a little and figure out how to do it without the help of Albany. There is no reason for consulting agents, PR firms and other outside influence in our business.
