Please do the right thing for us. No more landfill. No more over policing. No more over taxing. If you haven't noticed, our police department has doubled its budget in five years and has initiated an over-policing policy. People are afraid to drive in our town. People are afraid to go downtown for dinner after one drink. Our wonderful life runners nearly got arrested after the race for celebrating. Be careful of what we have created. Visitors and citizens are scared of our police department's reputation. I have no doubt that you are already aware of these issues. The citizenry are extremely concerned about the pending lawsuits, overzealousness, and overstaffing. Please do your civic duty. You were elected to make a difference.

These are a few of many issues. I think we need to seriously consider alternatives. It is obvious that dissolution was a complete failure.

Well, aren't you just full of yourself ! Just this week there was a 21 year old who who died of a drug overdose. How many more will it take ? Drugs and alcohol are killing more people than ever and your answer is fewer POLICE. Domestic violence is rampant, along with petty larceny, fatalities from motor vehicle accidents,home invasions and when the casino opens it will get much worse. If you feel you can't go out to dinner without having more than one drink then I would say that it is you that has a problem. grin

Your scare tactics will not save your police department this time. Crime is on the rise? Check your sources. The casino is not in Seneca falls and will rarely affect our town. Was this heroin overdose you speak of in our town? Home invasion? I think that was in Geneva.

Smoke, mirrors, propaganda and scare tactics as usual. No real facts. Chief Peenstra reported crime was declining.

So you think the casino being 4 miles away is going to bring tourists but not drugs. Most domestic violence is due to financial problems and alcohol abuse, but the casino won't contribute to that either I suppose. What Seneca Falls needs is fewer people like you laugh

But are we doing enough? The answer is no. Despite our best efforts, the opiate problem in the county continues to increase, LaVigne said.

Today's FLTimes had a letter to the editor that was so far off base one has to wonder what town the writer is talking about. The letter says that the wine and tourist business is what Seneca Falls needs to offset the revenue from the landfill once SMI closes. The writer has got to be nuts because we have both and the town is just getting by revenue wise. The Napa Valley wine tourism has dropped off because it's a "been there done that" kind of thing. The casino and other possible development will crush what little downtown business that is left. Doesn't everyone know by now the whole state is going downhill ? Must be everyone believes Cuomo's crap, about things getting better. As far as Seneca Falls being the setting for It's a wonderful life, actually any town in the North Eastern US could have been used as a model.

This is for all the people who hate New York city

https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Economy_of_New_York

You who don't like the fact that New York city's trash comes here, maybe you should think about giving them their 12 billion dollars back !

READ THIS grin

http://www.rockinst.org/observations/wardr/2011-12-giving_getting.aspx

" Rockefeller Institute study finds.[1]

Where did the extra $12 billion go? North and west, up the Hudson River and along the Thruway corridor to Upstate regions that have struggled economically for much of the last half-century. "

The board has to start a new policy of responding to people who speak at board meetings an make false and inaccurate statements. If this had been done by all the local boards years ago the landfill issue would have died out years ago. It is that simple, just tell these people they are full of crap in a polite way.

Have you seen today's paper ? Front page "SF environmental committee forms." It doesn't appear to me that there are any qualified people on this self appointed committee. These same people have made fools of themselves numerous times at meetings over the past year, what could they possibly have to offer ? Now we need an ethics committee to watch the environmental committee :-)

Something that someone said a while ago was that they had noticed a lot of tour busses going thru town on their way to the wineries, but they never stop. In the early morning and late evening a large number of busses going thru Waterloo and Seneca Falls in the fall grape season. What good is it to be the gateway to the Finger Lakes if nobody stops at the gate ? Now, with the casino, the busses can blow thru town on their way to Del Lago. Maybe we should put a toll gate on the bridges.

I would bet that the landfill tours by school and college students would surprise a lot of people. We should include landfill tours in an eco-tourism package, not many places can claim to have the LARGEST award winning landfill in the state grin

Well, according to that Mike Warren guy from Rochester the landfill is the highest point west of the Adirondack Mountians, we could play on that. We might have to give up on the white deer though, some guy shot one down by New York City. crazy

Today's FLTIMES, environmental committee not sanctioned by the town. Looks like we have another group of people who think they know how to fight the landfill. Lead by a music teacher no less, how impressive ! Did these people just crawl out from under a rock ? Much larger groups with better credentials have been battling the landfills for almost a decade and haven't gotten a foot from shore.Makes you wonder where these people get the audacity to show up in public and make fools of themselves. They actually think they are going to get the DEC and the EPA to change their regulations just for them. You people need to do some homework before you make yourselves look really stupid.
