DEBT DISTRICT IN FORMER VILLAGE A MAJOR PROBLEM IN SENECA FALLS—Officials from the soon-to-dissolve village drew a capacity crowd at the Potsdam Civic Center last night. Mayor Diana Smith says in the scenario that will soon come to pass where the Village of Seneca Falls merges into the Town of Seneca Falls, the Town receives about 3.5 million dollars in Village assets, while Village taxpayers still have to pay 1.5 million in debt, themselves. Smith says it's like having somebody moving into your house, sharing your assets and you paying for it all. Potsdam Village voters will decide on dissolution this November.
