Jazz concert tonight; sewer hearing delayed

Cathy Wakeman's Dryden Town Talk reports that the Cornell University Jazz Ensemble will be having a workshop and concert tonight at the Dryden High School auditorium. The workshop for students runs from 6:00pm to 7:00pm, and the concert starts afterward. She also reports on Dryden Elementary School's Bookfest, to be held Saturday from 9:00am to noon, with a variety of activities for children and a number of Dr. Seuss-inspired cakes.

The Village of Dryden sewer rate hearing has been postponed until March 15th. For a lot more information on the state of Dryden's sewer financing and possible futures, see this detailed comment from Mike Lane on yesterday's story. There's a lot going on.

Briefly in Tompkins also notes that the Dryden School Board "is considering a $30.5 million budget... reflects a 6 percent increase over the current year's $28.7 million financial plan... salaries and benefits represent the areas of greatest increase." The board will take up the budget at its March 12th meeting.
