Notalways - If you were there last night, you know that I clearly asked Mr. Subjack that, as of January 1, 2014 ALL funeral directors in Chautauqua County have stated that they will no longer perform indigent funerals at the current rate. Mr. Subjack replied "yes." First of all, I have since spoken to 2 directors that did not agree to that. So Mr. Subjack misrepresented the situation by confirming it was ALL funeral directors in the county. This was a strong-arm tactic to get more money from the taxpayers.

The reality is, this should go to bid and I am told there will be plenty of funeral directors in our county willing to perform the services at the current rate.

Just like any other contracted service, it should be done by a fair bidding process and those that don't wish to participate will not have to do so.

I am sure there is more to the story about funeral homes, however, I am sick of Borrello twisting words. Subjack said the "director's expressed to him" and Borrello tries to say "directors agreed". Those are two very different statements and even when Subjack corrected Borrello, he continues to say this. I think he just likes to stir the pot and make it worse. Maybe he would like to work for less than what he made years ago and loose money everytime he does. Why is it we say we try to encourge local small business, but them we behave like we don't?
