The Cortland County Legislature meets tonight (Thursday) at 6 pm.
The meeting could become a milestone for any jail or public safety building project for the county.
Lawmakers will be asked to authorize spending 1.9-million dollars for engineering and design of a building for property donated to the county in South Cortland.
By this time next year, the county could have an accurate price and capacity estimate.

- Hiring the SPCA for $48,000 a year.
- Contracting with the Soil and Water Conservation District for environmental monitoring at the county landfill at $78,000 per year.
- A resolution against Governor Cuomo’s proposed 15-dollar an hour minimum wage.
- A local law to drones would be banned from the county jail, schools, the airport, stadiums, many festivals, many activities and the CRT at Dwyer Memorial Park.
- Authorize ID badges for county workers similar to what is used at many workplaces.
- Approve a new credit card that can be used for some purchases.
- Homer Police Chief Bob Pittman is up for appointment to the County’s Chemical Dependence Subcommittee to replace Mark Helms.
- Approve another $6,000 for the construction administrators and inspectors overseeing the snow removal equipment storage building project at the airport.
