Its a tough situation ---Thing to do is cut the budget 50% across the board I mean really cut (except or infrastructure) Also take out the parking meters that deter economic growth.

Ah men to Msai and Thank you to Mary Lou & John
In all, due respect I think the Native Dancer statute and park should be located at the racing museum the track itself or in the auction area.
. There is a lot more to Saratoga than just racing and the park should be left out of the racing equation. The City fathers should provide the community with a public hearing .

Why not repeal the estate tax completely ? Its a disincentive to live in New York.
A lot of folks have moved to states ( especially sun belt states ) with no estate tax.

The Monday , March 16th ,1977 edition of the Gazette featured a story on the front page of the local section with photo about Howard Hubbard being consecrated on Sunday March 15th as the youngest (38) Bishop in the U.S. He was quoted in the article as saying
"As I assume this ministry of service I call for and pledge myself to a coalition of people -people bound together in love and service .....people committed to the spirit of reconciliation and forgiveness as portrayed in todays gospel ....all working together to build better communities". In his 36 years as Bishop he has proudly lived up to those words.
I am proud to have shared that Gazette page with Bishop Hubbard, as a young Schenectady City Council Candidate The Gazette Headline read "TOCKER OFFERS PLAN ON FREE PARKING". That story appeared top center on the page right next to Bishop Hubbard's photo. We were both 38 years old , The Bishop being only 43 days older than me . As a member of the Jewish Federations's Community Relations Council I have always admired him and wish him well in his future endeavors. Paul Tocker

Talking about infrastructure . The portion of Jay St diagonally across the street from the Post Office has been badly in need of curbs, sidewalks and Victorian Lights for many years.
All the other nearby areas including Little Italy, Liberty Street .\, all aroud City Hall all have new curbs and sidewalks . They also have the new Victorian Lights. The Jay St block where the Post Office is located has the old and very unappealing old poles . The Post Office is on the National Historical register and to not have the Victorian Lights and new curbs and sidewalks is pure neglect.

Absolutely- Meters have a terrible economic impact on Downtown
Instead of paying for meters lets do some new sidewalks on Jay St
diagonally across the St from the Post Office and lets put in the
Victorian Lights. New sidewalks and lights are in Little Italy
and all around City Hall so why not on that portion of Jay St. ?
a central corridor from Union College to Proctors.

It sounds very complicated . How many City employee man hours will be used to figure this all out? We want less complications not more. Take all the meters out and downtown will boom. Take the money we save on the meters and use it to fix the sidewalks on the western side of Jay St diagonally across the street from the Post Office and put in some Victorian Lights . The sidewalks and lights are neglected in that area but not all around including Little Italy and City Hall areas. It strange when the Post Office is on the National Historic register. We have a misplaced priority situation downtown.
