NORWICH Last week, mayors and municipal government officials from throughout New York state attended a meeting in Albany to discuss legislative priorities that, if passed, could aid municipalities in the future.
Norwich City Mayor Joseph Maiurano and Finance Director William Roberts attended the meeting, and according to the mayor, if the suggested legislation is passed, it could have a huge effect on the future of Norwich, and the rest of upstate New York.
The New York Conference of Mayors met in Albany to discuss issues that effect all of upstate New York. A list of recommendations and potential legislation was compiled.
NYCOM members explained that while state aid for municipalities had increased by $234 million in the last three years, the levels of aid provided to every city and village are well below what each rightfully deserves.
