Cheers and jeers

CHEERS - To ending an impasse. The Gloversville Common Council and Mayor Dayton King this week appeared to end their rift over the mayor's effort to appoint members to city boards. Some council members became frustrated with the mayor earlier this year after he refused to reappoint zoning board chairwoman Karen Smith. Since then, the zoning board has had three vacancies and three sitting members, just enough for a quorum. The three members were unable to have an official meeting recently because one of the three was absent, affecting the board's ability to conduct business. This week, the council approved mayoral nominees Frederick Bochenek and Jason Thompson to the zoning board. The council also approved mayoral nominees to the Housing Authority Board and Planning Board. For the city's sake, let's hope the council and mayor can put their disagreement over appointments behind them and focus on important city issues.
