OUR Town Board has two resolutions they are proposing at the Wed, August 20 meeting that require our attention:
Resolution Relative to Planned Development District Application of Capital View Casino and Resort, LLC
Resolution Scheduling of a Public Hearing for the Proposed Enactment of a Local Law to Amend the Town Code Relative to the Board of Ethics
We are encouraging you to show up to the Town Board meeting next Wednesday, Aug 20 at 7pm. We simply must be there.
This is what the Times Union's Fred LeBrun had to say about the steps the Board might take to force this casino through:
"Pulling an end run around its own citizens to give Capital View Casino developers the town board approval needed for a successful application is bad enough. But it now appears that zoning and master plan highjinks may also be required before the casino site can be approved. It will be instructive, and painful, to watch the contortions the town board is willing to go through to back up its bet, should such hijinks become necessary. When the developers say jump, it's how high."
Won't you join us at the meeting?
