Ellis Hollow silt, county planning

This morning's Ithaca Journal takes a look at the silt problems in Ellis Hollow that came up at this month's Town Board meeting. Jennie Daley talks with residents near the intersection of Turkey Hill, Ellis Hollow and Quarry Roads about their well problems, as well as with John Andersson, Environmental Health Director for the county Health Department, Deb Gross, Town of Dryden Environmental Planner, and Kevin Luce, General Manager of Finger Lakes Quarry.

There's also an article on a presentation about the county's comprehensive plan, a final version of which should be available by November for consideration by the Legislature in December.

Update: I forgot to note that the Journal's editorial endorsed Senator Charles Schumer and encouraged voters to vote against the OTB referendum.
