County court system considered
Ira Cohen, the county treasurer, said, “The economic times have changed but what hasn’t changed, it seems to me, is the willingness of local towns and villages to lose their local representatives. My understanding of the process is that we would have to pass a county law that would be subject to referendum in the towns. Everybody would have to approve it and that’s where the problem comes in.”
County staff will look into the court consolidation question.
