NO ESSEX COUNTY COST
Supervisor Thomas Scozzafava (R-Moriah), who was chairing the Ways and Means session, said he fully supports the concept of ROOST doing the marketing for Hamilton County.
“I think it’s a move in the right direction. We should take a regional approach.”
McKenna said he agrees.
“Some of the messages we put up now would be the same message everywhere,” he said. “It would really add more, rather than detract.”
The addition of Hamilton County would be at no cost to Essex County, Scozzafava said.
“The feeling is that what’s good for Hamilton County is good for Essex County. It would be more continuity.”
This autumn season has been good for tourism in general in the Adirondacks, McKenna said.
“The weather’s been positive this fall. People are traveling more.”
The measure gets a final vote at Essex County’s Nov. 4 regular session.
Essex and Hamilton are the only two counties wholly within the Adirondack Park.
