NOW IS NOT THE TIME TO PUT THIS ON THE BACK BURNER .SPEAK UP SENSIBLY
April 01, 2012 08:16:15 Veronica When is Masonville holding it reabies clinic?
March 31, 2012 21:17:50 CRAIG DUMOND   The proposed law crafted by the Town Attorney has been rejected by the Town Board. There will be no public hearing or consideration being given to the law at the next meeting. I agree the law goes way too far in regulating property rights. I am very proud that our little Town is one of the remaining Towns in the County WITHOUT zoning, regulations, etc. As long as I am a Board member I will always have this position. However, with that being said, properties that pose a health or safety hazard must be appropriately dealt with...the Town does not have this options as there are significant liabilites. These issues should be few and far between and need to be administered with a sound degree of common sense.
March 31, 2012 16:04:03 resident   masonville general store, someone who has the entire town's best interest in mind, not just personal feelings.
March 31, 2012 13:40:06 reader   In order for all to understand the law being voted on is to attend the April 4 town meeting and ask questions and listen to the information. Very important to attend otherwise you have no reason to complain about the results.
March 31, 2012 10:51:56 Common sense   A vote for this law is a vote for the town board to have the ability to take away your God given rights, stated under the 5th amendment of the bill of rights under the constitution of the United States of America. No elected official should be able to sit in judgment of the adequacy of your property. Such as, the length of your grass or cleanliness of your property, based on a public view. This law will take away your right to privacy and how you manage your land. Question? Who is a better judge of your property? You or the town board?
March 30, 2012 00:14:15 Gloria   I did not mean to offend anyone by my comment about the official website. I just wanted to have the info. out there for the site to be updated and since it only seems that Grumpy's site gets a response that is why I posted here. I don't doubt that the information isn't submitted for the website. But I think it should be. Thank you for the reply Webmaster.
March 29, 2012 15:16:01 Town of Masonville Webmaster   RE: Town of Masonville official site. The site is updated as rapidly as the webmaster receives the information to post. I do not receive anything but the minutes to post from meetings. Attachments and pending laws etc. are not transmitted to me to post to the site. i.e. I have not received the March minutes to post as of this date. As to proposed laws etc. I am not privy to these and do not get them to post. Please take this up with your town representative. As to someone else taking this job of maintaining the site please feel free to do so. I have been doing it for a time now and if anyone feels that they are more capable please do not hesitate. It is strictly a volunteer job and I have been involved in computer and internet long enough to know that "everyone" is an expert. Which I surely am not. Until such time as someone who is more capable and reliable than myself I will continue to do what I am able. I recently had a sit down with our new Supervisor and we straightened out some things that he and I were not satisfied with as far as the site is concerned.
March 29, 2012 14:03:44 Masonville General Store   Wondering who you think should be appointed to the upcoming vacant town board position?
March 28, 2012 23:54:21 Gloria   I've been hearing about a new law coming and since I can not make it to meetings at night I was trying to find this information on the offical site but could not. Is there a reason this law can not be posted on the offical site? Even if it isn't law yet it should be posted so people can preview it. I did ready March minutes and agree with Robert Beards and his concerns regarding the offical site. It would be great if someone would keep it updated. Nothing wrong with this site but it seems to get a little off the subject. (copied from offical site)"Robert Beards expressed his concerns with the official Town of Masonville web site and said he would be interested in working and it and taking it over."
March 28, 2012 23:53:22 Bertimouse   Thank You Mike & the TOM Board for your re-consideration of the TOM CCE Law. CUDOS 2 U ALL! Take ALL THE TIME U NEED 4 UR NEXT REVIEW.
March 25, 2012 21:22:22 reader   long time resident---these are the questions that need to be asked at the April 4 meeting, very important to attend, also ask others to come too.
March 23, 2012 06:14:58 why?   bertimouse you talk for your neighbor's where do you live next to a mental hospital. You sound very unstable.
March 20, 2012 19:26:24 bertimouse   Happy First Day of Spring Everyone! :)
March 20, 2012 04:06:47 The CallBox Kid   TURKEY SEASONS JUST AROUND THE CORNER !!
March 19, 2012 18:35:07 bertimouse   Sorry Bonnie & et all by our comments about the Penguin; nobody understood it: comments were Not Ours Like We Said-those of our neighbors. Rumors Buck with an S and we Promise Here Now not to say anything more like that snot...doesn't help anyone does it? OK Nuff said.
March 19, 2012 07:49:53 resident and tax payer   Does anyone in town want the town board telling them when to mow their lawn or to move a pile of brush because it is a fire hazard? Or that a building needs to be removed because they do not like the looks of it? Parts of the law are okay but it does need some fine tuning.
March 18, 2012 09:31:35 Denis Burpoe   Resident what is in this law that has you so concerned. After researching this law I find that it will make Masonville a better place to live. And that should be the goal of our town board, Don't you agree.
March 17, 2012 13:06:32 Grumpy Ernst Keidel On the contrary! Regular guests at the Country Cream, aka the Penguin, know the owners and the warm ambiance this little country spot provides. I'll be frequenting again this year, and yeah, the ice cream is delicious.
March 17, 2012 12:30:39 resident   The revision of a comprehensive law for our town is being voted on at the April meeting and all should attend ,as this will affect all property owners.
March 16, 2012 19:24:41 bones   please someone reveal the identity of bertijerk so we can smack her or him at the quickway. nice to see that she or him is speaking for the town and will be the reason the penguin will lose business .
March 16, 2012 18:11:19 WOW!   I really didn't think so Bonnie. I just posted to see what comments I would get. We will still be doing our usual fishing trips with the kids, and ice cream from Country Cream aka The Penguin for the ride home.
March 16, 2012 14:54:50 Bonnie Tripp   I would just like to clarify that bertimouse has NOTHING to do with Country Cream aka The Penguin. We are anticipating opening in mid-April. We love our customers and look forward to seeing you all. I apologize for any confusion caused by bertimouse's post.
March 16, 2012 13:06:18 TX-1   harm not hard,sorry to go back to school
March 16, 2012 13:04:56 TX-1   her son,no his ,sorry.
March 16, 2012 13:03:41 TX-1   That cant be the owner of the ice cream place talking,she is a real nice lady and his son too. thats someone trying to hard them,am sorry people are like that.
March 16, 2012 06:38:04 who?   If it is true that bertimouse has anything to do with the ice cream stand on Route 8 I will never go there again. bertimouse seem's to unstable for any children to be around.
March 16, 2012 04:12:36 WOW!   With a attitude like that I WON'T be taking my kids there for ice cream anymore.
March 15, 2012 20:45:52 bertimouse   Our Rte.8 Shop will open when we *CENSORED* well feel like it! Pretty soon whenever We Think. -The foregoing comments are not ours but those of our Neighbors; not us. TYVM.
March 15, 2012 12:22:46 CJR   Bythe way When is the Rt 8 Ice Cream Place Open on Shear's Rd.. ????? That Place is the Best !
March 15, 2012 12:19:07 CJR   Is the Big Old Nasty Shear's Road Evil Bear Active ?? Anyone Seen any Game Activity up in the State Lands Artic Mountain ???
March 13, 2012 09:08:37 Denis Burpoe   Resident. And what is wrong with this.
March 12, 2012 22:23:16 resident   attn: "whatever" read town minutes feb 1 2012 committee report ,new law #3 comprehensive code enforcement law intended to regulate and clean up town and protect us from public nuisances,etc
March 12, 2012 18:06:08 TOM Webmaster   Please note the NEW Town Hall phone number along with the proper extensions have been posted on the Masonville Website.
March 11, 2012 17:38:15 whatever?   Resident and courious what are yountalking about. I read Town Law #3 from 1995 and found it to be a very sound law. What has changed with the new law? Also if some one has a load of scrap or anything of value sitting on thei property and is receiving services from the county they should be claiming this scrap or junk cars are anything of value as a resource. If not they are not being truthful to all the paying tax payers.
March 11, 2012 14:15:49 resident   The proposed law should be checked out by all. Call the clerk and get a copy.
March 11, 2012 08:58:03 Craig DuMond   Yes, Fisher Electric
March 11, 2012 03:02:53 Fisher Price   HA HA!
March 10, 2012 21:17:24 bertimouse   Who was the Electrical Contractor that worked on our Town Hall? Was it Fisher Electric?
March 09, 2012 21:52:25 Craig DuMond   You can get copies of the proposed local law from the Town Clerk. We took the public input from the last public hearing and made adjustments. No we would like to hear the public's input once again. If needed, we will adjust it some more until most are comfortable. Bottom line is we need to do something about some of the significant problem properties we have that create health and safety issues as well as diminish others property values. We are not speaking of zoning....I do not believe anyone on the Board supports zoning....I know I strongly oppose anything to do with zoning.
March 09, 2012 15:53:45 curious   was there a hearing on a local law no 3. what is this law? who sponsored it?councilman? if this the one that everyone objected to .why are we trying to get reapproval.where can we get copies ? everyone ,voter or not,should be aware of what is covered ,some of contents imply masonville has serious issues.again where do me get copies. this law must be clearly understood by all each section should be explained as to why it is needed.the proposer should why the need. zoning?
March 08, 2012 22:59:51 bertimouse   My Mom always taught us to be True To Our Souls. Sorry if some folk think we are idiots here for speaking our minds sometimes. Our LLPP prayer is about the Light, Love, Power & Protection that we pray everyday to OUR God. We apologize if we've offended someone about that now. This bucks with a big S to even have to say this but whatever.
March 08, 2012 22:47:52 bertimouse   Thanks Grumpy. The Light of God Surrounds us All, The Love of God Enfolds us All, The Power of God Protects us All, The Presence of God is with us All. Were ever we are; God is with us all. We All Are Part Of One: Earth...Sea...Sky...Stars.
March 08, 2012 19:34:30 just one masonville resident   Grumpy, your site is very much appreciated to the people of Masonville. Although some may think it is not high tech or update enough for them, it sure fits us fine and is a fun way to get the news and ideas. Thank you, Grumpy for you support!!!!
March 07, 2012 13:09:10 Betty Scott   I agree it is important to keep our service personal in our thoughts and prayers. If you would like to help send someothing from home The Masonville Federated Church is currently collecting items to send to our service men and women overseas if you would like to contribute collection boxes have been set up at the church, the post office and the Masonville Library. A list of recommended items is available at each of these locations. The drive will continue through the end of March.
March 07, 2012 12:18:43 Grumpy Ernst Keidel CDR, Hello, Denis! You may remember my son Will, who was friends with your son and went to visit your home sometime. He went into the Army after graduation and then spent 16 months in Bah-Cu-Bah in Iraq with the 2nd Infantry Division. He is still in the reserves. His big brother (by three years) Armin was in Iraq at the same time and was medevaced out of Baghdad with a knee injury. He had his operation at West Point and now serves as a firefighter in Leominster, Massachusetts.
March 06, 2012 21:51:05 Oorah!!Hooah!!   As we remember those who have made the ultimate sacrifice for the freedoms we enjoy every day,please hold our servicemen and women in your strong arms. Cover them with your sheltering grace and your presence as they stand in the gap for our protection.We also remember the families of our troops. We ask for your unique blessings to fill their homes, and we pray your peace, provision, and strength will fill their lives.May the members of our armed forces be supplied with courage to face each day. Let our military families feel our love and support. Support our troops.
March 06, 2012 21:34:47 Craig DuMond   Even though both of our boys are State-side for now (Thank God)one is stationed in the full-time Air National Guard in Albany and the other in the Army at Fort Polk, LA. I agree Denis, far to many of us take for granted the sacrifices that have been and continue to be made to keep us all free. May God Bless our trrops and return them to us safe and sound.
March 06, 2012 12:52:42 Denis Burpoe   As we move foward to enjoythe spring weather the next few days in the comfort of our freedom that most of us take for granted and some do not respect. Lets remember those who are serving overseas on the battle grounds. We have 2 men from Steam Mill road serving in Afghanistan today. Does anyone else have someone from the community serving that we can keep in our daily thoughts.
March 05, 2012 19:15:16 Craig DuMond   While a Deputy Supervisor cannot act as Supervisor on the County Board, any person appointed Supervisor by the Town Board can. Mike Spaccaforno has been appointed as Supervisor for the Town of Masonville. I 100% support his appointment and know his excellent business sense and executive leadership skills will serve the Town well into the future. I also remain on the Town Board as a Councilman, filling Mr. Spaccaforno's seat, ensuring continuity and the smooth operation of our Town.
March 05, 2012 14:38:09 MIKE SPACCAFORNO   concerned - As the Supervisor of the town , I am and will be representing our town at the monthly Board of Supervisor's meetings. If you have any further questions, please contact me. Thank you for your concern.
March 04, 2012 22:13:38 concerned   is it true that our new supervisor cannot represent the town at the county board of supervisors monthly meetings because he was appointed not elected
March 03, 2012 13:34:46 masonville resident   Hope all can attend the town hall open house next wed. at 6 p.m. with the meeting to follow
March 01, 2012 20:39:13 Cheri Langstaff   Masonville is a super little town. I loved starting my teaching career there and had the best first class of 5th graders ever! It will always hold a special place in my heart and fond memories when I think of it. It saddens me to think that homey litte elementary school is not housing curious and spontaneous young children. Just loved it!
March 01, 2012 07:37:32 TX-1   Hey! was Shears rd plowed?
Febuary 29, 2012 18:38:34 voter   Hope all are enjoying the little snow we have, it sure is beautiful outside today and the plow trucks are busy making the roads safe for all to drive to work. Enjoy, tomorrow it will rain!
Febuary 29, 2012 10:54:09 C.N. Shew   Thank you Craig, for your time and efforts as Town Supervisor over the years; and may your new endeavor be successful and fullfilling. May God bless and guide you and your family in the future.
Febuary 28, 2012 22:25:36 Craig DuMond   The special meeting will be held to address the vacancy caused by my resignation. This will ensure an appropriate transition and continued productive operation of our Town.
Febuary 28, 2012 17:31:52 curious   A special meeting? About? Or is there not agenda?
Febuary 26, 2012 16:39:24 Craig DuMond   Hello All ~ There will be a special meeting of the Masonville Town Board on Thursday March 1st at 7:30pm. The open house for the new Masonville Town Hall will be on Wednsesday March 7th at 7:30pm....regular Town Board meeting to follow.
Febuary 25, 2012 21:27:30 Kathy K   FYI: I hear tell there is a "Special Meeting" on March 1st (Thursday) at 7:30 p.m.
Febuary 24, 2012 20:46:38 masonville resident   Open house for the new town hall will be the first wednesday of March at 6 p.m. at 7:30 the monthly board meeting will be held. All are welcome to attend.
Febuary 24, 2012 11:36:52 Finger Lakes Trail helper   Hi there Masonville...I am interested in attending the open house for your new town hall, is there a date slotted for this event? I will also, continue to watch the Masonville website for more info.
Febuary 23, 2012 16:47:28 Observer   What a choice we seem to have for president this election cycle! Mitt Romney is not bright enough to figure out he is in a Cult spiritually. If he is not intelligent enough to figure that out how on earth does he expect to run the country? Newt Gingrich? Well, he is just not smart enough period! Ron Paul? A rich man with a one plank platform. And Rick Santorum is not well enough known or has enough experience to be president. As to the one we have now? God above help us cause Obama sure is not going to.
Febuary 23, 2012 11:35:46 Good Luck   From Delaware County Sheriff's Department: Masonville Town Supervisor and veteran law enforcement officer Craig DuMond will soon become the Undersheriff of Delaware County, replacing Undersheriff Douglas “Doug” Vredenburgh who has announced his plans to retire effective at the close of business on March 2, 2012. Craig DuMond brings extensive administrative and field experience to the office, earned by assuming a variety of law enforcement-related titles and responsibilities. He is in command at the Henry Johnson Youth Leadership Academy in South Kortright and has served as a part-time patrol officer with the Village of Walton Police Department since 1990. Sheriff Mills noted, “I appointed Doug Vredenburgh as my Undersheriff when I first assumed the role of Sheriff in 1999. We had both retired, after serving with the New York State Police.” While Undersheriff, Vredenburgh served as the Supervisor of the Delaware County Drug Enforcement Unit when it was organized and also was chosen to lead the 4-person Transition Team that worked in conjunction with the Architect and Construction Management personnel when building our new Public Safety Building and 100-bed correctional facility. Sheriff Mills reflected, “Doug’s contributions to this Office were significant – and he will be missed.” Craig DuMond comes to the job having completed 22 years with the New York State criminal justice system, and having risen through the ranks to the Facilities Director for the 110-bed, state-run Allen Residential Center in South Kortright. After such a lengthy and distinguished career spent serving the State of New York, it only seems fitting that he begin a new chapter of his life and continue to serve the citizens of Delaware County.
Febuary 23, 2012 08:29:23 Maria   Dear what? & MV resident - thanks so much for your help. My family & I wish Craig the best!
Febuary 23, 2012 08:05:35 Denis Burpoe   Craig wish you well as the New Undersheriff for Delaware County. I hope our next Supervisor will represent Masonville with the same drive that you have shown. Good Luck.
Febuary 23, 2012 08:02:22 When?   Berti you are full of S&%* so stop trying to be something that you are not.
Febuary 23, 2012 01:25:45 bertimouse   Spring is Such A Good Thing To Think Of Now: The Planting of Seeds, Sharpening up the Plow. Just the Smell Of The Earth! & the(almost hundreds of!)Robins back on the Field again. The Bright SUN drying our clothes on the clothesline in only 1 hour. No. We here are not full of s%*&. We will always Love this Earth with our pure Water & Sun & Soil. Let U All go to L if u r against this. Nuff Said Neighbors.
Febuary 23, 2012 00:51:48 bertimouse   We Are Not full of s%*&. We Care & Like to Speak Up once in awhile. Its everyones right, Yes. Forgive us YOU ALL HERE because sometimes our comments May Offend You-OMG! It is Never Our Intent to purposely do so. We Just Love this TOM Message Board because - Every Once In Awhile - We Really Get To Talk About something that really matters around here. -And No Maria WRE doesnt sell red mulch. The closest place is KMART in Sidney if your willing to spend that much. We'd try Norwich.
Febuary 21, 2012 17:20:14 who?   I smell a rotten camel in this
Febuary 21, 2012 16:07:27 Observer   Burn a Bible and no one except you will even know. Burn a Koran and you have an international incident. Something wrong with that picture.
Febuary 21, 2012 15:45:39 what?   Between Franklin and Oneonta on 28 there is a place with red mulch and dirt. Just past the Ouleout golf course.
Febuary 21, 2012 14:50:16 MV resident   Maria - you might try WRE (Waste Recovery Enterprises) on Rt 7, Sidney -607-563-2626
Febuary 21, 2012 14:48:38 what?   There might be someone smaller but try Clark companies 746-2727. Lowes and Home Depot have sales in the spring on red mulch 2cu ft bags $3ish, Home depot online bulk; $800 ton,$570 half ton,500lbs $550, all includes delivery. Don't know if this is a good price,sounds high, never bought it myself. Seems like there would be a local landscaper that might have a decent price?
Febuary 21, 2012 08:17:52 Maria   I can't believe that no one is able to tell me who can deliver a few yards of red mulch. I need a few yards of top soil and a few yards of red mulch. Any suggestions? Thanks!
Febuary 21, 2012 04:14:51 what?   Dear what??, you have no hope for the future? While I agree, the Republicans running for office are not what I would call top shelf, someone NEEDS to do a better job than our Community Organizer in chief. Don't you wish for 'hope and change'?America can't afford four more years of the 'same old thing'.Obama does have a good chance of winning though, money and corruption can buy you anything and Obama will break his OWN record, more money spent to buy the Presidency than any President in history! A billion dollars this time around! Obama spent a half a billion more than the Republican last time. Obama agreed to run under Campaign Finance Reform in a effort to get the corruption out of politics, he LIED!
Febuary 21, 2012 00:35:05 What??   Dear what?...Obama will be re-elected! Get used to it. The Republicans are nothing but a joke. Keep your politics off the's boring.
Febuary 20, 2012 16:33:29 masonville resident   Let us leave everyone alone and think about spring, in about 3 weeks the time will change and that is the true beginning of spring. Although we can still have some real winter weather in March.
Febuary 20, 2012 15:14:32 what?   I agree to, but lets try to be somewhat? civil. I only disagree with berti's views on Obama, there has been NO hope and change, and this country will be paying for it for a long time. Obama has shown he has no regard for the Constitution or bill of rights with his passage of NDAA. Obama expanded and added to Bush's wars, and started a couple more, trillions spent by Obama on these wars. 2.2 million jobs are now non-existent since Obama became President,there were 2.2 million more jobs available to have in this country in '09 than there are today, after his failed trillion dollar 'stimulus'. If the same number of jobs existed, the real unemployment rate that's reported would be almost 9.8%. The number of jobs in December, 132,952,000. The number of jobs in January,130,400, yet Obama says the unemployment rate is dropping,the real U6 unemployment number,17%. Two and half million fewer people working in January than there were in December,and this isn't counting the 'disappeared jobs'. The civilian labor force tumbled to a 30 year low of 63.7%. Source; Department Of Labor Statistics.You just have to look through Obama's smoke screen, smoke and mirrors.
Febuary 20, 2012 07:52:43 when!   I agree but berti is still full of s%*&
Febuary 19, 2012 20:35:27 what?   Kinda ironic that someone threatens to reveal somebody's identity while hiding behind a screen name, a screen name someone else has been using for awhile.But to think about it, maybe it was just a joke to get people going.
Febuary 19, 2012 15:55:17 Grumpy Ernst Keidel CDR, Come on guys. play nice! It is not a good idea to reveal personal information about others against their wishes. If Bertiemouse wishes to remain anonymous and the residence location kept quiet, then let it be so.
Febuary 18, 2012 16:38:47 masonville resident   Happy birthday to our town judge, hope you have a great day.
Febuary 18, 2012 07:20:58 Grumpy Ernst Keidel HAPPY BIRTHDAY to our very own Judge Judy! She is my neighbor, up the hill, and it was her father, the late Hank Bogardus, who was my very first friend in Masonville. I am sure that Town Justice Judy Jackson is pleased with her new office and courtroom in the new town hall.
Febuary 16, 2012 21:09:11 bertimouse   Dear Counterfeit What: No slip up by me just being Honest. We have nothing to hide. It Is Everyones Right Here To Be Anonymous & obviously talk about almost whatever we want. Be Very Careful, Neighbor. Time & Time Again We Always Say-Remember that The Meek Shall Inherit The Earth so be kind! Our other motto is a flag with a snake & the saying Dont Tread On Me: we are armed with good Lawyers & good Guns. Nuff Said.
Febuary 16, 2012 15:49:09 The real 'what?'   WOW! Everyone, or someone likes useing my 'screen name' or 'nom de plume'. The the last few posts were not by me. Will the real slim shady please stand up!
Febuary 16, 2012 14:25:15 How!   Sounds like something is getting pretty deep where bertimouse is and I do not think it's snow.
Febuary 16, 2012 13:00:06 who   bertimouse, how is the weather on foster and pine hill rds.?
Febuary 16, 2012 10:59:46 what?   Sorry, it was Freedom of Information Law, not Act
Febuary 16, 2012 10:57:21 what? done slipped up. I just happen to have a close family relative who works for the Town Court in Hancock. Through some inquiring...I just happen to know who you are. I will not say right now because I am actually FOILing (Freedom of Information Act) the info but upon will be de-masked!
Febuary 15, 2012 22:05:00 bertimouse   Hey whynot: Geez Louise We Had One Comment about that and R satisfied with Craig Dumonds response TYVM. Peace Neighbor.
Febuary 15, 2012 08:35:49 Maria   Got mulch? Does anyone know who will deliver a few yards of red mulch?
Febuary 15, 2012 08:15:15 whynot?   bertimouse the 4000 dollars was for supplies why do you have to keep questioning our highway supervisor. He saves the town a lot of money by not doing other work and working on the equipment all the time.
Febuary 14, 2012 20:47:31 bertimouse   Happy Valentines Day! Many Red Hearts and Loads of Chocolates, Kisses, Hugs and a Bucket of Red Roses to My Love whom I am SO GLAD IS WITH ME to Share My Life.

Febuary 14, 2012 20:40:38 Just wondering   Does anyone know how the roads were on Pine Hill and Foster RD. on Sunday?

(I watched 10 folks before me go up to the Judge pleading guilty to lesser charges & ALL OF THEM were $100 bucks a pop. "75 in a 55 mile zone, 85 in a 55 mile zone", etc. etc. The Judge was a very nice man. Everyone I saw paid $100 for their speeding tickets, but I think they STILL got 2 points on their license for it. The Asst. DA told me that they had 70 PEOPLE in there for that, so you know that Hancock makes at least about $7,000 a month on that one speed trap alone! =All I could think about driving home that night was=what are they gonna do when that stretch of route 17 turns into interstate 87 when ALL of it is supposed to be 65 mph! ;) Then I thought that maybe sections of this route will ALWAYS BE 55mph. ???

It had been OVER A YEAR since I heard from them: Folks at work said Dont Let It GO! Good Advice, Yall because even if the locals forget about it the NYS DMV WONT! =They will suspend your license eventually!!! So, it being the New Year & all, I contacted the Hancock Court & said "Hey, whats up with this ticket?" -They said basically; "OH yah we forgot but show up on this date." Long story short my case was dismissed because 1.Clean drivers license. 2.The Asst. DA in Hancock used to work in Sidney. 3.I got the car re-inspected the next day after the ticket. 4.I contacted the Town to let em know my ticket still wasnt taken care of yet after a whole year. CASE DISMISSED. YAHOO! No Fine!
