Again the local municipalities are going to be feuding among themselves. Gloversville is grabbing money anywhere they can and saying "yea for me and screw the rest of the county". Tell me again why we need 17 different governments in Fulton County to govern 55,000 people ?? Is that even the population of one small city ? Consolidate, consolidate and consolidate some more. You will now have 10 Towns on the verge of bankruptcy or facing HUGE tax increases which the people can not afford. NOW IS THE TIME, ACT BEFORE IT IS TO LATE !!!

I do not think we should be resigned to the change, but rather perhaps a 3 year adjustment period so the loses are gradually felt by those towns and villages hit so severely
