Money meeting on Jan. 31
So far village of Liverpool taxpayers haven't felt the effect of the county's sleight of hand, but come July, that'll be a different story. Concerned villagers should make a point to attend a special village board meeting about the impending financial crisis at 7 p.m. Monday, Jan. 31, at the Village Hall, 310 Sycamore St.
Board of Supervisors?
Early last year in light of the county's decision to rescind sales tax monies from towns and villages, Geddes Town Supervisor Joe Ranieri wrote a letter urging the dissolution of the county Legislature and the county executive's office in order to return to a Board of Supervisors form of government.

School districts need consolidation
Meanwhile, Mahoney and her minions keep pushing for consolidation.
But no one, including the county executive, seems to have the chutzpah to take aim at the school districts. They're the highest-taxing entities in New York State, and there's more than 700 of them not counting New York City.
A visionary leader would force the schools to regroup with one district for each county.
Right now Onondaga County has 18 school districts. That's 17 too many!
