NORWOOD MAYOR SAYS POTSDAM VILLAGE DISSOLUTION MAKES THINGS BETTER, NOT WORSE FOR NORWOOD TAXPAYERS--James Mc.Faddin told 99 News this morning he does not believe the Village of Potsdam will dissolve, and he hopes it does not. That being said, he believes the tax increase Norwood Village taxpayers would see would be balanced out in terms of more cost-effective services delivered with higher quality. He says Town-Outside taxpayers get the worst deal, services they don't need and taxes about triple.
