ONEONTA – While Dick Miller was mayor, discussions were initiated with the City of Norwich about the possibility of sharing the services of Oneonta Finance Director Meg Hungerford, three days here, two days in the Chenango County seat, according to former city manager Martin Murphy.

Murphy said today, recapping a conversation in July, that he was surprised to learn of the idea – after Mayor Miller’s passing and he was three months into the job – at a meeting in January with Norwich Mayor Joseph Maiurano.

“I was very surprised to learn the discussions had gotten to that point without me being aware of what was going on,” he said.  “It all came as a surprise to me.”

The idea was that the finance director would receive an additional stipend of $15,000-20,000, Murphy recalled.  “We never really got to that point,” he added.
