Once again, the Schuyler County Legislatulre is moving forward in the process of eliminating the elective post of County Treasurer and replacing it with an appointive position. Lawmakers approved the "Municipal Home Rule Law" that would allow for an elected position to be eliminated and replaced by an appointive position. County Administrator Timothy O'Hearn explains how this came about.
A public hearing will be held March 11th at 6:30 p.m. The Legislature attempted to do the same last fall, but an effort to place the proposal on the November ballot failed when it was discovered the placement had to be made at least 60 days before the balloting. O'Hearn said when it was discovered it was 57 days until the balloting.
