Fenner town board formally opposes state gun law

— The Madison County Board of Supervisors has also voiced its opposition to the law and approved a resolution calling for its repeal at the board’s Feb. 12 meeting, with Cazenovia Town Supervisor Ralph Monforte and Fenner Town Supervisor Russell Carey voting yes, and Nelson Town Supervisor Roger Bradstreet voting no.

The county supervisors then passed a second resolution on the NY SAFE Act at their March 14 meeting, asking the state to tell the county how to fund, or how to get assistance to fund, background checks required in the bill. That resolution also repeated the Feb. 12 request that the governor repeal the law.

Also at its March meeting, the Fenner Town Board approved a resolution to pay mileage expenses for town employees traveling to approved municipal training classes, and announced that its annual Spring Cleanup will take place May 3 and 4.

The board also recently issued legal notices that town assessment inventory and valuation data, which is to establish parcel assessment on the town assessment rolls, is available for public examination and review and that the town’s financial statement for the year 2012 has been completed and is on file at the town clerk’s office for public inspection. Any resident who wish to view the town assessment inventory must make an appointment by calling Town Assessor Rhonda Weigand at 668-9931.

The board also has announced that it is currently collecting a list of residents willing to serve on the Town of Fenner Board of Assessment Review. Anyone interested in the appointment, or who has questions or concerns about it, should contact the town offices at 655-2705 or townoffenner@windstream.net.
