Waging the facts

September 7, 2013 - John D'Agostino
Once again the Empire Center for Public Policy is out with its annual salary review for municipalities.

As was the case last year, Brocton was at the top when it came to average pay for villages in Western New York while Jamestown's average salaries were higher than anyone else in the region.

A link to the complete report, and my Publisher’s notebook item, is included in the links.

These Chautauqua County employees are the real thieves.

The report lists one Chautauqua County employee making $162,894. Why bother peddling drugs or robbing banks when you can work for the county? A report from the county office of real property taxes covering the period ending May 31, 2013 reveals a property tax comparison as follows based on a home assessed at $100,000.00: Jamestown - $3,126.00, Dunkirk - $3,786.00, Brocton - $3,422.00, Fredonia - $3,784.00, and Westfield - $3,762.00. So, when you are wondering why our county is going down the drain all you need to do is read these figures again.
