Answers were promised at next Wednesday’s Knox Town Board meeting

To the Editor:

I would like to remind the residents of Knox that the monthly town board meeting will be held on Wednesday, Feb. 13, at 7 p.m. at the Knox Town Hall. The meeting date is a change from the regularly scheduled second Tuesday of the month.

At this meeting, there will be a public hearing on Proposed New Local Law 1 for 2019 regarding Code of Ethics/Conflicts of Interest, a copy of which is available for review on the town’s website. On the website, there is also a link to Proposed New Local Law 2 of 2019 regarding the proposed multi-use recreational district at the intersection of routes 156 and 157. Although not specifically noted on the website, I believe it will also be reviewed at the meeting.

Several questions were left unanswered at last month’s meeting regarding the legal ramifications of the recent dismissal of the three transfer-station attendants as well as the failure of the supervisor to file annual financial reports with the New York State Office of the Comptroller as required by law.

The audience was promised answers to these questions at this month’s meeting. As many of you know, my husband was one of the transfer-station attendants who was replaced at the reorganization meeting, so I have a personal interest in those answers.

That said, I encourage members of the Knox community to attend this meeting as the answers promised regarding the failure to file the annual financial reports has the potential to impact every taxpayer in our town.

Joan Adriance
