Cairo town meetings

Nov 03, 2011 2:37 am
Doron Tyler Antrim writes in The Daily Mail that Cairo Town Board members will vote today to give up health insurance for part-time elected officials, and make others cuts to keep next year’s tax levy increase under two percent. The story does not mention what time the meeting will be, and Cairo's town website is not currently active. Antrim writes that the board still needs to find $12,000 more to cut. Board members and the Supervisor John Coyne agreed to a 20 percent salary cut, which would save $8,300. Board member Janet Schwarzenegger proposed shrinking the size of the planning board to five members with no alternate, from seven members and one alternate. She also suggests, since the economy has slowed new business, cutting the meetings back to once a month, rather than twice. The proposals would save $7,000. The final budget meeting is set for Nov. 7 at 7 p.m. and a public hearing on the budget will be held Nov. 9 at 7 p.m. Tonight WGXC will record a candidate forum with candidates for office in Cairo at 8 p.m. Candidates for Town Supervisor, Town Council, Highway Superintendent, Clerk, Justice, and Tax Collector have been invited to answer questions. We will air it live on 90.7-FM if we can, but more likely we will make a recording and play it back in part Friday morning and afternoon, and in whole at 7 p.m. Sat. Nov. 5. The recording will also be posted online at wgxc.org shortly after the candidate's forum at Town Hall at 8 p.m. Thu. Nov. 3.

WGXC will also air a candidate forum at 1 p.m. Sat. Nov. 5 live from the Catskill Community Center on WGXC 90.7-FM. Candidates for Town Supervisor, Town Council, and Highway Superintendent have been invited, and the public is too, to the Catskill Community Center at 1 p.m. Sat. Nov. 5, and live at 90.7-FM.
