Governor Cuomo declared a State of Emergency in Herkimer, Jefferson, & Lewis counties, which were affected by flooding due to heavy rainfall combined with melting snow runoff. Under a State of Emergency, critical resources that are normally restricted to State use are mobilized to assist local governments and laws and regulations that would otherwise impede their rapid response are suspended. The American Red Cross opened a shelter at the American Legion in Carthage last night for people who had to evacuate their homes because of flooding along the Black River. Red Cross volunteers will provide each shelter resident with a cot, blanket, food and personal hygiene items. The shelter will remain open until all of the residents are able to return safely to their homes. Meanwhile, raw sewage is spilling into the Black River in the Village of Castorland due to flooding. Public Works officials report that the problem is due to the village's waste water system being under water, adding that homeowners are not seeing problems, however diluted raw sewage has no place to go and is spilling into the Black River. The Black River is expected to crest this evening at the third highest level in its history.

Voters in the Town of Webb School District will head to the polls May 20th to vote on the school budget as well as decide on 2 Board of Education seats & decide whether or not to approve the establishment of a capital reserve fund for the school. Under the plan, money that is not spent at the end of the fiscal year would go into a capital reserve account that would be used specifically for capital projects, which would help avoid ajump in the tax levy and avoids a vote on large capital projects. Most school districts now have a capital reserve fund. The budget vote will take place from 2-9 p.m. on May 20th in the school gym. The Board of Education will then meet on May 21st to accept the results of the budget vote.
