BIG changes coming to the Town of Amherst!

Really?

The Work Session for the July 6th Regular Town Board meeting at 4 pm could prove “interesting”!

Agenda: http://amherstny.iqm2.com/citizens/FileOpen.aspx?Type=14&ID=2678&Inline=True


The full agendas for both July 6th Town Board meetings are now posted on the Town of Amherst meeting portal, and both are blockbusters!

The following are the resolutions that are the most concerning since they involve the selling or purchasing or swapping of very $$$ land namely the Town of Amherst land at the Audubon Recreational Complex and Mensch Capital Partners land at the former Westwood Country Club.

Local Website Edited After Smoke Reported

A website was edited sometime in the past twelve hours in the Town of Amherst, according to Amherst Pants On Fire Control.

The Candidate, or more likely her campaign manager, responded to our post about resume inflation at bergerforsenate.com sometime after 7:30am EST Friday morning after being alerted to the blaze in progress on the AmherstTimes website.

Readers of this blog reported signs of the missing sentence as suggested by traces of excess punctuation left behind by what authorities suspect was a hasty deletion.

No other typos were reported.

Stretch Pants On Fire!

NYS Town Law allows for the appointment of a Deputy Supervisor by the Supervisor to serve at his or her pleasure. This means that any such appointment is a “receive and file” item and serves to notify the Town Board of the Supervisor’s decision. The Town Board has no role in this appointment. Under section 42 of NYS Town Law, this is the exclusive jurisdiction of the Supervisor.

So, reconcile Town Law and Town Board Resolution 2020-1 with the above resume inflation, and decide for yourself if you smell smoke.
