LETTER TO THE EDITOR
To the editor: The Cazenovia Fire Department wishes to thank the community for joining us at our annual open house. We enjoy connecting with our fellow community members, demonstrating our training, equipment and skills, as well as having the opportunity to educate the public about fire safety.
More than 200 community residents — mostly high school and college students — turned out on a cold, windy Sunday last weekend to participate in the annual Cazenovia Crop Walk for hunger. And they raised more than $2,500 for local and world hunger programs.
Business First, a Buffalo-based magazine that conducts annual evaluations of the 100 top school districts throughout Upstate New York, last week released its 2014 results — and named Cazenovia Central School District no. 5 Upstate, no. 3 in the Syracuse region and no. 1 in Madison County.
Madison County Commissioners of Elections, Lynne M. Jones and Laura P. Costello, announce that the Madison County Board of Elections office in the county office building in Wampsville will be open four evenings and two Saturday mornings previous to the general election to be held on Nov. 4.
The Nelson Town Board is moving forward with its work on the town’s 2015 finances, and last week adopted the tentative budget and approved a local law to override the state tax levy cap. The tentative budget is only the first stage in the budgeting process, so the current working numbers and potential tax rate for 2015 have not been released to the public.
