CANTON, N.Y. (WWNY) - The negotiations were described as good, honest and frank.
St. Lawrence County Chair Joseph Lightfoot used those words as the county sat down Thursday morning to begin negotiations on a new plan to split sales tax revenue with towns, villages and the city of Ogdensburg.
A couple of weeks ago, city Mayor Mike Skelly put forth a new plan which takes a little money away from the county and gives it to municipalities.
“There was no consensus on it, but it was a start of negotiations,” said Skelly.
The current plan for the sales tax split is good for another year. A new deal would be good for the next 10 years.
