Based on my last drive through the Village many Code Violations were visible. In depressed communities many property owners let property become trash ridden, repo's, etc. Unfortunately this condition exists in many other areas of the country and the clean up cost falls on the community. Code Enforcement is needed in Silver Creek for sure but it needs to be applied to all, not a select few!

"The Hanover Town Board was shocked at the increases proposed for police coverage at the town board meeting Monday." What? PhilJulian tries to tell us that going to a single police entity is the answer to our fiscal woes. Must be it isn't so.

The Town abloishing the agreement with the Village for Code Enforcement has taken done an injustice for the Village. Take a drive in many neighborhoods, lawns not even mowed this year, unregistered cars, illegal signs all over the place. Perfect time to add on your house or build a garage, who is going to stop you? My favorite is the house right next door to the Hanover Town Hall, they parked an unregistered vehicle right on the line of the Town Hall Property, the Town Code Enforcement Officer has to leave the parking lot everyday and look at it, funny part, the property owner knows nothing will be done about it.

So the village still has police protection 24/7 and its costing the village less? Why would anyone in their right mind argue about this?

Keddie- Go to the Town of Hanover Code Enforcement Office and make a complaint to the officer about a code violation in the Village, please do. You will get the same answer I did, "the town doesn't do the village anymore you need to go to the village" Why is that? The Village was forced to go re-create and fund a position that was shared by the Town and Village (the exact same concept the town now wants) was just eliminated by the town? If Mr Johnson can't even work with the Village on a part-time code position, what's his intentions on police protection?

Yes that would make sense to have each entity pay and 1 contact. However, a month ago the Village had its own police force for the Village, which provided service to its residents 24/7, a service most of the community wants, full time police protection. It was said by the board we can see up to a 20% savings in Village taxes going with Sheriff coverage, Lets see this first! Plus, I'm paying and want to pay for police protection in my neighborhood, I don't want to pay for it and have it not here and have it tied up in Sunset Bay all the time while the Town saves 20k, which amounts to probably a 50 cents saving on their taxes

How about both villages contribute and pay the town and the town contract with the Sheriff for enhanced coverage? Would you be happy then Trump?

Trump -- what a positive attitude you have! The sky is falling. Try a new phase, be part of the solution rather than contributing to the problems. The Old School is closed get over it.

I can see the writing on the wall. A contract is not even signed and the Town of Hanover wants the Village of Silver Creek will be paying for police services to supplement the town. I'm not "shocked" at all over this. There is an easier solution, dissolve the Village and have the Town foot the bill for it all.

The Village and the Town are pretty lucky to have Nick and Todd working together for the residents. They are honest and will do what's best for everyone involved. That's the fact. If you complain about them, you obviously don't see the big picture.

Here we go time for the two faced politicians for the Town of Hanover look to try screwing over the Village of Silver Creek residents Again! Now that the Village contracted to reduce costs Todd Johnson is going to try pulling another quick one and make it where the Village pays for his Town coverage. This is going to be like the code enforcement position he recently screwed Silver Creek out of. Mr Piccolo you would be foolish if you try to work out an agreement with the town. The Village loses everything, don't make history repeat itself!
