Cheers and jeers

JEERS - To no answers. We echo Gloversville City Attorney Anthony Casale's comment, "I respectfully disagree with the court's decision." The decision he is referring to involves the court's rejection of the city's request to obtain records from the Fulton County Economic Development Corp. and the Crossroads Incubator Corp. The city is trying to recover $750,000 from the agencies. The money originally was allocated to Gloversville. More importantly, the funds came from taxpayers. Apparently, the city doesn't have the right to request records, and the taxpayers and media can't get them because the agency is designated as a private, nonprofit organization. It's unfortunate the agencies will not disclose the information, which should be available via a simple phone call. The legal battle is costing the city money.
