MAYVILLE - Real property owned by Chautauqua County will still require a supermajority vote to be sold after county legislators voted down a change to the local law Wednesday night.
Lawmakers voted against requiring a simple majority with 14 opposing and 10 in favor of changing the local law. Just prior to the vote, a motion to table the issue failed.
Earlier in the evening, lawmakers again failed to reach a supermajority vote to sell the County Home to Avi Rothner of Altitude Health Services Inc., falling two votes short with a 15-9 vote.
A poster hanging outside the legislative chamber in Mayville on Wednesday compares revoting on the County Home sale to Altitude Health Services Inc. to replaying Super Bowl XXV because the Bills lost.
Vickeye James, D-Jamestown, was absent from the meeting.
A motion calling for the repeal of the NY SAFE Act passed by a 21-3 vote.
