Delay in Town Hall land purchase

This morning's Ithaca Journal reports that negotiations with ELM Acquisition Corporation for land for a new town hall have been delayed because of a "small glitch." The negotiations are still proceeding:

Steve Trumbull, the town supervisor, said the town board should be able to vote on the revised deal at its meeting Feb. 10. In the meantime, Trumbull said he will be working with the town attorney to address the contract's handling of buffers around the edge of the property.

Briefly in Tompkins notes that the SPCA will be having a meeting at their building (map) to discuss an off-leash dog park for the county on Wednesday at 6:00pm. This is also tax-free shopping week on clothing.

Dryden residents who live in the Ithaca City School District may be interested in the earliest budget projections for next year, which show a possible 6.9% tax hike.
