SNELL SUIT WILL COST OVER 50-THOUSAND DOLLARS--Potsdam Village Administrator David Fenton told Trustees Monday litigation filed by the Village seeking a ruling on whether the Village can annex property owned by Jim Snell just outside Village limits on Route 56 North will go to trial if the matter is not resolved. The Town of Potsdam has refused to allow it, as it wants a special district created instead for water and sewer. Village law does not allow services to be extended without annexation. Snell says he feels he is being discriminated against, as the Town allowed the Lowe's parcel across the road from him to be annexed in. The Town is calling for the Village to drop the suit.
VILLAGE JUSTICE RESIGNS, COCAINE USE ALLEGED--Potsdam Trustees voted Monday to accept the resignation of Justice Joseph 'Tim' Welch, effective immediately. Sources told us late Monday the resignation stems from a police investigation of cocaine use in a rest room he used. Welch is under review by the State Commission on Judicial Conduct for other matters.
