As I have said in the past this is a big waste of time. Don't be surprised if Brocton votes it down. They don't want their building closed. Even if this merger were to take place it would not solve anything long term. $30 dollars is a joke. Mayville/Chautauqua did not work. Wake up unless all of Chautauqua County schools merge and an overhaul of administration and spending takes place there is no hope for small mergers solving anything long term.

Westfield residents are turned off by the 30 dollars per year savings. I think that Westfield will vote this down. The lack of postings on this article says it all, people do not care about a merger in Westfield!

This merger is a joke. Brocton will likely vote for it. Westfield on the other hand will not. In fact, write this down Westfield will vote this down 5 to 1. As for the article, no one cares that is why no one is attending the meetings. And the reason Westfield will vote this down, it is only a 30 dollar a year savings for the average homeowner. Stop talking like its a big-time tax savings for locals, $30 is a joke, you can't even go to dinner for $30.
