VISITORS

Disclaimer: The opinions expressed by visitors are their opinions and do not necessarily reflect the opinions of the Town or the Town Board.

Legislator Patrick Twiss: Reported that the sales tax collected by the county is up. He discussed the flooding and the many meetings that have taken place concerning the issue. He stated that although there is some funding for municipalities it will do little for municipalities in Oswego County as most of the damage has been to residences. So far there is no sign of funding to help residents. The legislature is proposing increasing terms for legislators from 2 years to 4 years. It will be on the ballot for the November election and if passed will take affect with this year’s elections.

Mary Bachignano: Asked the board to please continue to push for help for the residents affected by the flooding.
