STILL MISSING OUR Town Highway Equipment Leases ....and Why?

WHY? .....it has been over three months now. and our Supervisor, John Salka, still cannot find those leases for the Brookfield Highway equipment.......why would that be???....MISSING?...or "lost" because there is information he may not want us to know?....they are still missing, so, if found, please forward to the Town Clerk for safe keeping...just makes you wonder just what Salka is hiding now! Sorry I wasn't able to make it to last night's Town Board meeting.... hated to miss the most recent episode of "Breaking" Brookfield.

BCS MINUTES - Finally and Formally VANDALISM COVERED UP

Finally, some BCS School Board minutes posted on the School website.  The Superintendent explained that the District Clerk was too busy for that kind of work... she had other priorities.   Still disappointing (but totally EXPECTED)  to see that the Board has NEVER FOLLOWED UP ON THE VANDALISM that occurred in SEPTEMBER OF LAST YEAR...so now we can consider it a FINAL COVER UP and .write off another $250,000 on top of that  $152,000 + wasted on the so-called Administration...another Brookfield cover up.... the Board didn't even want to know who the suspects were....yet, everyone else in Town seems to know...that's how we ADMINISTER things around here: friends & family first.

Just Askin.....Where are the TOWN EQUIPMENT LEASES

Why won't our "open & transparent" Supervisor release the FREEDOM OF INFORMATION requested copies of the Town's equipment leases?  ...requested over 40 days ago...formally, in writing...yet...only a few leases released and no reply...is there something more to these leases we should (or should NOT) know about???

Just askin...Salka must have them,....he went to great lengths to explain how he goes through these leases and the amortization tables each year to update the Town's Annual financials.....

Magee works to expand access to farmland for beginning farmers

Assemblyman Bill Magee (D-Nelson) announced the passage of his legislation to help new farmers by developing an inventory of state-owned land that may be viable for farming. Furthermore, this bill would require the state’s Agriculture Advisory Council to provide tax and financial advice to beginning farmers in order to ease the difficult process of entering the agricultural field (A.9536).

“This proposed law will enhance access to farmland for new farmers,” said Magee. “With the average age of farmers getting older in our state, we need to do more to expand access to farmland to ensure a strong future for agriculture here in New York.”
