MEDINA – Orleans Radio, an on-line site that has been streaming music by local musicians, will host a live debate on Sunday about the proposed dissolution of the Village of Medina.

The debate will be broadcast live from 1 to 3 p.m., and can be accessed at OrleansRadio.com. Alex Feig is the site’s founder and he will host the debate on Sunday, trying to help educate the public before the Jan. 20 vote. Village residents will go to the polls from noon to 9 p.m. at the Senior Center to decide if the village government should be dissolved.

The debate will include dissolution supporters and foes. Medina Mayor Andrew Meier and One Medina leader Dean Bellack will have a chance to advocate for dissolution. Dissolution opponents – Village Trustee Mike Sidari and former Trustee Owen Toale – will get a chance to share their views.

Feig will moderate the debate, which will be broadcast from the conference room at the Paper Boys. The speakers are expected to discuss the dissolution proposal, impact on village services and taxes, voting eligibility and collateral effects on the community, according to Feig.

The debate will be available to hear in a podcast after the live broadcast.
