The County Leg finally has worked up the gumption to say no more above-and-beyond tax deals for these Big Wind schemes.
On top of the ludicrous results of StartUp NY and the regional kumbaya sessions mandated by the Governor, it's time to start saying enough is enough.
People are tired of all this and while county legislators generally run unopposed, it's clear the message is seeping into their psyches. But really, how long till a wind company dangles some cash in front of a "cash strapped" school district ?
Meanwhile, government largesse is not totally out of vogue. At 245 last night the Council voted 3-2 to seek state funds for the old Masonic Temple Building. In doing so they made a choice not to seek funds for the Lincoln Building which is being developed by Mark Purcell and Brian Murray.
