Lots of snow

Well, in the end, not that much, maybe a foot. Well, maybe more - it's snowing again, though it sounds like the worst of the storm's moved east of us. Still, this morning's Ithaca reports on the state of emergency declaration, along with Ithaca and Dryden school closings.

There are several articles on Dryden government and happenings:

  • The Dryden Village Board will hear public comment tomorrow night on a proposed 22% sewer rate increase. The increase is meant both to deal with the increasing costs of their 40-year-old sewage treatment plants and for getting started on replacing it. (Town residents in the Cortland Road Sewer District will also see a 22% increase in their bills, which run 125% of the Village rates.) The meeting will be at 7:00pm meeting at Village Hall, 16 South Street, Dryden (map).

  • Dryden Village Trustee candidates Lisa Valentinelli and Elizabeth Gutchess filed petitions to run under the banner of the Better Dryden party. They were endorsed by the Democratic party last month.

  • An article credited to "Journal Staff reports" and reading depressingly like a press release reports on developing plans for a special committee to address land use issue, including zoning, stormwater management, and riparian buffer zone protection.

  • Cathy Wakeman's Dryden Town Talk reports on 2006 Dryden High graduate Leslie Fisher joining the University at Buffalo Choir in a singing performance at the United Nations General Assembly.

  • Groton Town Talk reports on an upcoming February 16th dinner theatre at the Elm Tree Inn in McLean.

In state news, there's an article on a call for optical scanner voting by a number of people including Assemblywoman Barbara Lifton.
