MAYVILLE - The municipal consolidation forum that was scheduled for Tuesday, May 8, has been rescheduled for Tuesday, May 15, from 7 to 9 p.m. at the Carnahan Theater at Jamestown Community College.
"Due to a sudden scheduling conflict for Gov. Andrew Cuomo's representatives, we have moved the forum to the following Tuesday," said County Executive Greg Edwards. "Despite this minor setback, I am encouraged that local leaders can still learn about what Gov. Cuomo is willing to support in efforts to consolidate, merge, or share services between municipalities in Chautauqua County."
The forum, which will be a question and answer session for mayors and town supervisors, will be led by Dierdre Scozzafava, deputy secretary for local government, and Kyle Wilber, municipal management consultant from the state Department of State.
After elected leaders begin the analysis by meeting with Cuomo's representatives, Edwards said he hopes to have another forum open to county residents and taxpayers.
