Baldwinsville municipalities join forces

Last week, the village of Baldwinsville and the towns of Lysander and Van Buren issued a letter to Governor Patterson protesting the excise tax of beer, which officials believe will affect the Anheuser-Busch brewery in Lysander.

According to Mayor Saraceni, the letter asks the Governor to "reconsider the tax on an industry that's thriving in New York." He added that brewing not only affects the the beer industry, but also the canning factories, drivers and distributors.

"It's a healthy industry," Saraceni said.
