A town board meeting was held last night.
Everyone has probably already read about the 15% contribution for the Dispatch health care benefits that were not collected by the town, Tyksinki: Reed failed to collect health care benefits.
Was it Reed's job to see that the 15% health care contributions were collected...what about the person doing payroll? Or did Reed gave a directive to the person that was doing the payroll?
Anyway, another topic not reported on in today's paper was eminent domain - the taking of private property for a public use. After a rather lengthy Executive Session, the board voted unanimously to initiate eminent domain proceedings against the Yagers (Twin Orchards) for the property that Larry Adler "needs" so that the business park can "flourish".
My, oh my, the things a "progressive" town like New Hartford has to do to keep the developers happy!
Be sure to read what Strikeslip has to say on this topic...Taking and Giving in New Hartford...!
UPDATE: The Observer Dispatch now has an article online...Town to use eminent domain to gain access to business park.
