Editorial: Dissolution - Village taking next step


The recommended plan — available for download at — creates special districts for streetlights, sidewalks, water, sewer and village debt.

The plan shows a savings for people with property assessed at $100,000 or more, and a declining savings for those with less expensive homes. In fact, at under $70,000 of assessment, people would start paying more for special districts than they paid in village taxes.

But the people have spoken, and Keeseville leaders are now in charge of eliminating their own jobs.

A session being held at 7 tonight by the State Department of State will share more information on how dissolution will be accomplished. Community members should show up to claim a role in shaping their future governance.
