localresident, this is about the SCHOOL!!! The Village does NOT fund the SCHOOL!! Hiring 2 or 20 firemen doesn't effect the SCHOOL, and hiring or keeping 2 or 20 teachers doesn't effect THE VILLAGE GOVERMENT. Ok, lesson over.

Perfect timing to hire two firemen! Genius at work, boys! GENIUS! Does the Village board ever even consider talking to an accountant or financial advisor, or do they insist on making their own mistakes simply through hubris?

I can't say I'm surprised, in spite of the expected closing of CH. It's too bad CH is closing, but maybe it's what's needed to force people to do what they should've done years ago...LEAVE! Then again, they can stay and collect welfare, or possibly land a lower-paying job to live in the same depressed area that keeps exploiting them for the benefit of others.

Typical. Got their band aid fix they will continue on in the same old habits. Fredonia voters vote NO for the budget. Send the message freeze wages and pay more for health insurance for starters.

A community has been devastated by an industrial closing, hundreds will be out of work, yet a tax raise as presented as a good budget!? How about cuts in staffing each year to balance off the inevitable and constant payroll increase? Anyone voting for ANY rise in taxes this year is out of their minds. I know nobody in ANY school system is aware of the term "wage freeze", but most state workers are, and have gone sometimes years with them. Teachers need a wake-up call, and soon.
