Property values just dropped 20% in Cassadaga. Fewer services more taxs. NY what a place to live. Last person out please shut the door and turn off the lights.

I would like to point out that Wheelock schoolwas open at least 3 years longer than it should have been, and was only closed due to pressure when Fredonia was trying to merge with Brocton. If not for that merger issue, don't be so sure it'd be closed.

Obviously the author of this editorial doesn't pay the taxes for CV school district with many of the teacher salaries that are higher than the national average.. higher than the County Executive. Plus their cushy benefit package.. I seem to remember reading in the Observer that the school board invited a member of the village board to be on the committee. I dont see how that is them "butting in" I think they are only trying to preserve the viability of the village.

For once -- in a long, long time --the church ladies gaggle of the OBSERVER board got it right. As evidenced, the enrollment is insufficient to support the need for the facility. The staff will be released, but its not as of they've the the steady decrease in students and should have realized staff was in a dicey position. Sadly, the reminder of better days needs to close.

I will agree with the author of this editioral. Saving the district approximately $400,000.00 is great. I would guess the savings could exceed $600,000.00 if cuts across the entire staff are made. The projected savings don't include administration positions. If people lose their jobs welcome to the real world. Many of us face that possibilty each and every day, it's called working in the private sector. As with the Village Board passing a resolution opposing the closing, just another useless piece of legislation. Of the five members of the Board, two are employed in county government, one a doctor and the other two(one retired)are both representatives that work or worked in private sector. No longer can we as taxpayers continue support poor decisions because of emotions.
