Oswego County Legislator Mike Kunzwiler wants an answer as to why members of the Democrat caucus did not receive the financial disclosure form required to be filled out by elected officials and appointed personnel.
Kunzwiler and the other Democrats said they received a letter from the county ethics board stating that the legislators disclosure forms had not been received and are due.
When Legislator Doug Malone attempted to address the absence of the form during Monday’s meeting of the legislature’s Strategic Planning and Government Committee, he was not allowed to speak to the issue because it was not on the agenda (see related story).
A discussion in regard to changes in Oswego County’s Freedom of Information Law policy was tabled with little discussion by the legislature’s Strategic Planning and Government Committee.

A committee will be selected soon, Legislator Terry Wilbur told members of the legislature’s Community and Consumer Affairs Committee when they met Wednesday.

Oswego County Legislator Dan Farfaglia presented members of the Community and Consumer Affairs Committee with a proposal that would return a program that allowed a tax exemption for home improvements.
“When this option was available previously, homeowners were exempt from paying the full amount of the increased assessed value until five years after completion,” Farfaglia wrote in a memorandum to members of the committee.
The committee voted Wednesday to table the proposal, not because they don’t support it, but because they want to obtain more information.
