What a joke my former town has become. Wasn't like this when I grew up there. So glad I chose not to life with all the garbage that goes on there.

Only way it will ever stop is to vote "the gang" out of office.

We haven't heard a thing about Preswick Glen. At one point, the town board assured everyone that the town attorney, Jerry Green, would be giving regular updates on Preswick.

The last we heard, the school was going to hire their own attorney (separate from the one the town and county hired) to handle the case so taxpayers will be paying for (2) attorneys instead of one. See our blog There's been a change in plans.

Either there is nothing new to report or nothing new that they want taxpayers to know...at least not just yet. Or maybe there has been a deal cut behind closed doors.

Only time will tell...

There already was a deal cut by the last town board and it was like this - If you can show you are tax exempt, pay the town 2% of the rents anyway, and if you can't show you are tax exempt, pay full taxes.

Q: When is deal not a deal, Rufus Green?

A: When lawyers are involved.

Couldn't agree with you more.

Point is, any deal cut by this town board will end up costing the taxpayers dearly...not only in lost tax revenue, but in lawyer fees to settle an issue that never was an issue to begin with. Not to even mention the wetland preserve that everyone in Oneida County may be expected to pay for...that would be the one that is already being advertised as an attraction on the Preswick Glen site.

Fact is the taxpayers won't even know they are being "screwed" because few people ask any questions of their elected officials...they just bitch and pay the taxes anyway. Then come election time, they put the same old cronies right back in power. Go figure!

What will it take to get people interested in their government?
