Picente Statement on Barneveld Dissolution

County Executive supports village decision, offers assistance
“I would like to congratulate the residents of the Village of Barneveld on their historic decision in yesterday’s vote.  The village overwhelming chose to begin the dissolution process 54-12. I believe wholeheartedly that consolidation and shared services are essential to modernizing government so we can erase duplication and deliver the most efficient services to taxpayers. Removing these duplicative layers of government allows us to keep taxes low and move the community forward.  My administration stands ready to assist the village in any way possible as they move forward in this process.”
