So, the courts have ruled that the Niagara County Sewer district is essentially just another county department that falls under the control of county leadership and is not some quasi-independent fiefdom of town supervisors who have treated it as their own little playground for decades.
With that issue settled, I believe the County Legislature should immediately remove any town supervisor on the board who voted to pay Attorney Bob Roberson the $17K he ALLEGES...cough cough...that he is owed.
By rolling over for Roberson (who is partner with one of our favorites, Fast Eddie Shoemaker) these supervisors ignored their fiduciary responsibility to taxpayers in favor of old-fashioned cronyism. It's that plain and simple and they should be made to pay a price.
Remove them from the Sewer District today and send a message that Niagara County is serious about good government.
