NEW DISSOLUTION PROCESS GIVES PUBLIC MORE POWER--Potsdam Joint Town/Village Dissolution Study Committee Chair Tim Connolly said at a public forum earlier this month that a new law signed by Governor Cuomo eliminates the two-year waiting period if a dissolution vote fails. Potsdam is one of the last communities in the state under which the previous law with the two-year wait applies. However, Connolly notes if the current study process were to end right now, the new law would apply and someone could submit a petition immediately and force a vote in three months.
