Columbus Supervisor resigns

COLUMBUS – Columbus Supervisor George Coates resigned from public office Thursday night following his board’s decision to proceed with a building project for the town hall.



“If I stayed there, I wouldn’t feel right with the people. My conscience would bother me. It’s just when I see so many other things in the town that we need, I can’t put this as a top priority,” he said.

The project is an approximately $50,000 addition to the town hall that would provide offices for New York State 6th Judicial Court proceedings. The board applied for and was awarded a $30,000 grant last year for the project, of which $19,000 was obligated for construction.
