Mayors Told Cap to Remain

        The tax cap will remain.  That's the message Mayor Butler and other mayors heard yesterday in Albany as legislative leaders addressed he NY Conference of Mayor winter meeting.
        For Watertown, it's little different as the City's share of the extra quarter point added in December will pad the revenue, providing an easy compliance this year.
        Long term, the City's effort to reduce the size of the Fire Department and realign rank structures is the biggest attempt at cost containment.

Maybe if AJR wants to keep her job, instead of getting free money for waterlines, she should get her boss to get rid of unfunded mandates, like the new million dollar courtroom for a part time unneeded judge.

I get sick of hearing the same old song and dance of unfunded mandates, we'll take the FREE money for unneeded housing, FREE MONEY for this township, or that township....

1:35, You make a very compelling argument. Addie is in good hands taking election advice from you.

The governor should live under the same premise and restrictions as the tax cap.

Clayton gets boatloads (no pun intended) from Addie.
