Dryden residents voice concerns over document filings

Dryden Town Supervisor MaryAnn Sumner is clearing the air over a controversial issue that had some 50 residents pour into Town Hall last week to voice their concerns.

It stems from a document she signed for submission for the critical environmental areas process, which was backdated.

Sumner admits her faults, saying she was careless in not noticing the falsified information on the document, which led to the resignation of Town Planner Dan Kwasnowski.

She would have rather seen a lesser form of disciplinary action, but the Town Board voted to accept his resignation.

Sumner says the town is already in the process of actively withdrawing the critical environmental area forms, and says the Town Board had no basis for wanting to fraudulently protect earlier actions.
