New Town Hall to be on site of old

This morning's Ithaca Journal reports from last night's Town Board meeting that the board settled on the location of the existing town hall (map) as the best of their options for building a new Town Hall. The combination of its having water and sewer, already being owned by the town, being familiar, and not needing to take more property off the tax rolls gave it an advantage over other properties the town had examined. The article also notes the delay in construction on Hunt Hill and Genung roads to next year.

Jennie Daley also has an article on student opinions about school district budgets in Groton and Dryden, and the Journal examines work the county legislature, led by County Legislator Martha Robertson, is doing to develop a low-cost prescription drug card for people without drug coverage.
