Quiet in day in Dryden, county news

This week continues to be a quiet one for Dryden-specific news, but there's a fair amount of county news that affects Dryden.

The Tompkins County Municipal Officers Association will be having a forum on county government, with a focus on the prospect of a county executive. Gerald Benjamin, a political science professor at SUNY New Paltz, will be the speaker. The event will be held at 7pm next Tuesday, September 28th, at the Ithaca Town Hall (map).

On the opinion page, the editorial congratulates the legislature for buying time on a jail decision by continuing planning for a larger jail, even though everyone except the state seems to consider 136 beds an expensive boondoggle. (I originally misread yesterday's article to say that the legislature had approved going ahead with the project, and I've updated it below.)
