Per Today's OD: Unused developer fees spur other problems. Again, the story is about what has happened to all the Fees In Lieu of Mitigation collected by the Town of New Hartford from developers over the last 15-20 years. Where was the money? Does the Town have to return the money? When does the money have to be returned? Where are the agreements that specify the when or where about collecting, spending and returning the money?
Money, MONEY, MONEY . . . Typical New Hartford Fixation.
Why isn't anyone raising a stink about the ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACTS that those monies were intended to mitigate? Why isn't anyone raising a concern about the PEOPLE who may have been affected by the unmitigated environmental impacts from New Hartford's development?
