As long as we have liberal mandates at the state and federal level they will continue to go up. Selling the home will slow it some. As would both airports being sold. Also reduce the pensions and pay of CSEA employees, the mayors and any other politician.

How about posting this question: If the County Home is sold, do you expect to see a significant reduction in your County Tax bill?

Taxpayer's will bring the lawsuit. Where will they get the money. Are you pitching in. Will they take up a collection? Have a raffle? The money that will come from taxpayers will come on the County side to defend the sale. Call me stupid but tell me exactly jo1952 where will the money come from. Please be very specific.
Matters not what the appraisal is, it is worth what a reputable buyer is willing to pay and that figure is $16M.

So if the home is sold a minority of the taxpayers(sounds like progressives) will try to bring a lawsuit against the county to drag out the sale, thereby causing the county to lose more money over the cost of the lawsuit, maybe lowing the price in the process and causing a possible raise in taxes. Well thought out people.
Money talks and this isn't the first rodeo for these buyers. Life will go on. Change is always hard but in a year no one will care.

people are "angered" by tree huggers trying to block NRG plan, and complain, but let a few talk legal action to block sale, and it ok, talk about narrow minded bias

law suit, sounds like those who are not willing to let go will do anything to block the will of the majority, last we looked, although it may not be popular with some majority rules

if the vote is made with the head and not the heart, than the outcome is ,as plain as the nose on the taxpayers face, we say again tough times dictate tough choices, a yes vote starts the ball rolling to county riding themselves of neg. enterprises, to evolve county must change and now is the time

As I recall, many people did not want the Bridge to be built over Chautauqua Lake. They caused a long delay which cost you & I & all Taxpayers a lot of money, and yet it was built. Just saying..

Someday, someone who votes with the majority today to sell the CHH will need its services.
And guess what? It'll be shuttered because the purchaser couldn't find enough "full freight customers" and closed the doors.

The propwerty has been on the market for years. If it was worth more than $16 million don't you think that potential bidders would be lined up at the door? A property can only be worth what someone is willing to pay for it and an appraisers opinion has little if any value.

Does anyone get this at all? This isn't about money, it isn't about value, it's POLITICS!!! Nothing else matters. Oh, almost forgot, it's also about those d a m n e d UNIONS!!

Yes it will that decision was made election night. This decision will be made WITHOUT A PROPER AND PROFFESSIONAL APPRAISAL OF THE PROPERTY. Which could be the basis for a lawsuit since it could be considered an arbitrary act of the County legislature to sell OUR valuable asset without a properly updated appraisal. We could delay the sale for quite some time as we enter court because of the GOP's rush to sell OIUR asset THE County Home. Please do vote to sell so we can embarrass the GOP led County Legislature by brining action to delay the sale because you failed in your feduiciary responsibility by selling an asset without proper efforts or knowledge. Go ahead this can be fun now. Wanna sell our County Home? Now we have a way to go down fighting and a solid one at that. Maybe Terry Niebel is right, pretty intelligent man, bets be careful!
