NORWICH – Chenango County never intended to skirt its financial obligation to Communities Against Regional Interconnect or CARI, the group that successfully defeated the high power electrical line that was headed this way from Canada.

After all, the county started the opposition group in the first place, said Chenango County Board of Supervisors Chairman Richard B. Decker, R-N. Norwich. It later grew into a coalition of seven counties and a handful of community action groups.

“It was a good fight,” Decker said before a meeting of the Finance Committee last week, “which, by the way, we started.”

Decker was on hand at the meeting to request authorization for spending $55,000 and the county’s final financial obligation to CARI. The full board of supervisors will consider adopting the resolution on Monday.
