County budget, DA's race

There isn't much in today's Ithaca Journal about Dryden, except a reminder that school taxes in Dryden are due Saturday to avoid a penalty. (In the Ithaca district, they're due October 31st.)

There's lots of county news, however. A front page article visits last night's county budget meeting to see what the public had to say about the proposed no-tax-levy-increase budget. Mostly it sounds like people are concerned about cuts to programs, though one attendee doesn't seem to get that no increase in the tax levy means no increase in total taxes no matter what the assessor's office does.

There's also an article on District Attorney George Dentes defending his record against a lot of issues raised by challenger Gwen Wilkinson.
