About 20 years ago the town board of Seneca Falls thought it would be a good idea to let Stank Meadows go higher, wider, and increase their tons per day - tpd. So, the answer is that the old town board of Seneca Falls is to blame for making the area the dumping grounds off the north east.

The DUMP got so used to the town being puppets that as soon as they hear NO, they are taking legal action against the town instead of accepting the fact that the people of the area don't want to be bullied into being the trash can of the north east anymore. So much for being good neighbors. Stank Meadows is more like the neighborhood bully. Their way or else.

The town used to pay zero TOWN taxes because of the dump. When the village and town merged, the old town had to start paying taxes and the old village taxes went down. School taxes remained the same (the dump never had anything to do with school taxes). Instead of the town having a reasonable budget, they counted on the dump money and you can see the terrible situation that has gotten SF into today.

Is CircularEnerG still trying to force more trash onto the residents of Seneca County??

I see even Cuomo said this was a bad idea. Lots of reps against this one.

As of right now they have begun the approval process under Article 10 and are pursuing two lawsuits against the Town. No indication they are backing off at all. And no decision from the judge yet.

That's the problem with these companies that have millions behind them. They waste so much time and money of small communities and then try to beat them into submission. Then, they turn around and give money back to make themselves look like hero's. Bullies.

They don't care about what the community wants. They only care about their bottom line and making more money.

Stank Meadows uses the same tactic. If the town doesn't do what they want, they bring them to court. Sad.

We still don't know where the money is from. I do think the lawyers are billing by the word.

They are certainly making money on the applications and lawsuits.

Seneca Falls Town Board met for a special session - Pretty obvious Greg & Lou are agreement on everything. Do you think they talk outside the meeting? I never met Doug, however I agree on his thoughts on the IT Position & the attorney. And Lou's argument about law firms doing hand offs to others; how does it differ from what Foster does now. I still don't understand why we hire from outside the town. At least stay in the county. A YES vote on the budget was the right vote. It shows MOST believe Seneca Meadows is not "A Good Neighbor."

Raising taxes at the pace they are going shows that they can't manage the situation.

explain just how you would force someone to take the job as town attorney ? Keep in mind that the Seneca Falls Environmental Action Committee wanted the last town attorney to resign. Must be you people in Seneca Falls think the town attorney can change the law. Wouldn't it be a good idea to find replacements for the IT and attorney BEFORE you eliminate them ? Wouldn't a part time attorney " HAND OFF " more than a full time attorney ? This is pure politics. Obviously you think the supervisor shouldn't talk to the deputy supervisor, WOW !

Why do you think they dissolved the village ? The situation hasn't been MANAGED in decades and the State is going to manage it for you if something isn't done soon.
