Sustainable Otsego endorses five for Otsego board

(Continued)

Sustainable Otsego's "10 Point Plan" includes: support of home rule authority for local communities; the promotion of farm-to-market agriculture; water quality preservation; making low-interest credit available for local businesses and homeowners; and greenhouse gas reduction through greater reliance on renewable forms of energy. The group said it also backs the Oneonta Southside Municipal Water Project to spur retail business growth in that section of the county. In addition, the plan calls for exploring the development of "municipilized" electric grids to lower energy costs; the availability of broadband services throughout the county; the establishment of a county-wide sustainability plan; and the pursuit of tax policies that "do not increase income inequality."
