Professional Roads Chief

ballot-boxFLY CREEK – An 18-year-old with no experience but sufficient vote will continue to qualify to run the Town of Otsego Highway Department.

An Otsego Town Board proposal to professionalize the roads chief position was roundly defeated, 899 (56.76 percent) to 685 (43.24 percent), in today’s balloting.

Town Supervisor Meg Kiernan, who returned to the town’s top job Jan. 1, after a four-year hiatus, had proposed and championed the idea, arguing running a highway department has become more complex in recent years.
