To The Editor:
I wonder if the attendees of the CC meeting that applauded the decision by the mayor and CC of the city of Fulton not to pursue the possibility of doing a feasibility study will be applauding with the very big possibility of losing state aid.
The mayor has said how much money we could lose in state aid by dissolving.
The feasibility study would have only said if dissolving was feasible.
The decision to dissolve would have been left up to a vote by YOU not six elected officials.
Well our city leaders and those of our neighbors (Granby and Volney) may have put us in line to lose state aid.
So instead of receiving money to do the study and money to help pay some of our debt, the leaders may have put us in line to gain more debt.
I have said it before but I have to say it again.
You can lead a horse to water but you can’t make him drink.
Well that drink of water and many other services have a very big possibility of costing you and me a lot more in taxes and fees.
