Brong pleads guilty; new SPCA leader

The Ithaca Journal reports that former Town of Dryden bookkeeper Liva Brong pleaded guilty to fourth-degree grand larceny for depositing an $8,993.42 forged check. The Town is still reviewing its books for last year. Brong will be sentenced October 22nd, and the recommended sentence is $701 for restitution and five years of probation.

The SPCA has chosen Cornell ethics professor James Tantillo as a temporary replacement for departing Executive Director Nathan Winograd. The SPCA also has emergency preparedness for animals brochures, with one for pets and one for large animals. The brochures were produced with a hazard mitigation grant.

County Legislator Martha Robertson is quoted about the buying process in an article on the county's purchase of a new emergency communications network, which should be running by the end of July, 2006.
