Islanders, I want to hear what you think!
As Town Supervisor, I need to listen to lead. I can't fix everything, but to fix anything I need to hear from you.
So, I'm doing everything I can to reach to the residents and business people of Grand Island to understand your concerns and find practical solutions to your problems. Part of that is conducting surveys on this site.
If you have a moment, please share your thoughts on any of the important issues below. All surveys will be anonymous.
Grand Island Bridge Tolls
Unlike Trapping and Term Limits, this isn't something that can be resolved on a local level. We are still committed to finding a solution to the Grand Island bridge toll issue.
“Are you ready to work with me and say no to that unwanted and unnecessary tax that has helped make the business climate of our Town so anemic and made commuting such an intolerable pain?” If so, let me know!
On July 18, 2016, the Town Board passed a Term Limits law. The new law will limit council people and the Supervisor to two terms or eight years total. However, a Council candidate could still run for Supervisor or Supervisor for Council, after two terms, and serve another eight, if elected. They could also run for Town Clerk or Justice.

A couple weeks ago, I wrote about the pros and cons of term limits. I asked, “Should the new town board seek to pass a law forcing those who try and entrench themselves at Town Hall out?” Below is a chance to offer your opinion on this complicated issue.
The Town Board passed a law that allows trapping on town land with a permit issued by the Town Board, without the stipulation that it be for scientific research or nuisance situations. The law prohibits trapping in town parks. Complete Text of Law
Thank you to all that responded to the survey on trapping. I appreciate the time you took to express your views. This is obviously a very controversial issue and the results prove it.
