I use to live in Schoharie, and I lived two businesses and five houses away from where the County Jail now resides. I have never had a problem with it being there, and I don't remember there being the outcry with that location as there is now.
They have to build it somewhere on higher ground and closer to the Court House.
I think this is the perfect spot for it.
Compliments to the Board of Supervisors for their diligence in this matter.

Let's see how it works out, if it doesn't, then those areas that didn't get it can consider themselves "lucky", but, just say "boycott" one area because another didn't get it or whatever the reason may be is a little premature.

A lot has happened since we were flooded out on that day. It was a home my parents built, and I grew up in and where my husband and I lived in after we got married in 2007.
We were lucky as we were able to sell the house; and, someone else is making it their home.
We now have a home on a "hill" in Fultonville, and a mortgage at the age of 71 and no flood insurance, but, at least we are high and dry.
Schoharie is never far away in our thoughts; and, they have come a long way, and still have a long way to go.
I never thought 3 years later we would be in a new house and a new county.
Good Luck, Schoharie.

One question? Why are they releasing this man? Unbelievable!

Our hearts goes out to those that got flooded out. We know what it is like we lost everything when "Irene" hit Schoharie. The ironic thing is they got hit June 28th and "Irene" hit Schoharie on August 28, 2011. We no longer live in Schoharie or the county. We have a house in Fultonville and it is on a hill; and, no need for flood insurance as of yet. Our hopes and prayers go out to all.

75% is better than nothing. When I sold my home I lost about 85% of its value; and, no I did not rebuild or stay. Once flooded was enough for me. My husband and I are now in a place where we do not need flood insurance with our mortgage. Though we had to rebuild as it was cheaper than renting. I feel sorry for Schoharie County, for that was a place I was born and raised; and, the house was my parents. I miss not being there, but, I am glad to see that the house is still standing and new residents are living there. Good Luck Schoharie County.

How many chances does NYRA get? That is the question, before it is taken away from them.

This is a great article; and, we like most of the other people in the village of Schoharie were hit by Irene as well. The house wasn't condemned but at our age to old to take on the rebuilding and a mortgage; therfore, we decided to leave. I have lived there all my life and it breaks my heart to have to go.
I only wish the best for Schoharie and it's residents, and, any furture residents that decide to live there. It is a great Community.

What people forget that 9% would be on "top" of what you pay for the "state" sales tax and that would not be fair no matter how you cut it. Secondly, what would he do about the "states" and their sales tax? is the next question.
I have never been for or will I ever be for a "flat tax" as it is unfair is so many ways.
