WDT: Budget Said Unlikely to Exceed Tax Cap

    Buried deep in this story is good news and that is there is no appetite to exceed the tax cap so the increase will be more like one percent than 12 percent. The Mayor is quoted as saying the adopted city budget will differ greatly from the the one proposed.
     Among the changes possible would be an effort to off load the bus system on Centro, the central NY system now running services in Syracuse, Utica and Rome. That would take some time though, if its even possible.
      Budget review sessions are set for early May with adoption of the spending place on or near June 1.

Why not sell the area and to a private owner. Cow could get a million maybe for it.

Too bad the citizens of Watertown can't get the kind of attention that guy from Brownville got about the one way street...

11:15 if you have the bolas the percentage of COW employees is 65% that live outside. They leave because they know how poor the COW is run! The Town of Watertown has a fire dept. supported by the COW, a Water Dept supported by the COW. Where do you live?

Time for the city council to tell River Queen Addison it's time to fish or cut bait...

How can Mayor Butler call out city folks for not living in the city when City Manager Addison lives outside the city in fishers landing?
