FALCONER – The Village of Falconer plans to hold a special meeting later this month to discuss Jamestown’s second annexation attempt.

Village officials say the Mayor and Board of Trustees will meet on Monday, March 23 at 7 p.m. in the board room of the village community building.

At the meeting, officials are scheduled to vote on the annexation of the Dow Street Sub-Station property.

Last week, Jamestown’s City Council voted to move forward with legal action to annex the property.

City officials say the proposed annexation would save the Jamestown BPU approximately $173,000 in property tax payments to the Town of Ellicott, Village of Falconer and School District annually.

The substation sits on property in the Town of Ellicott and the Village of Falconer on Dow Street between Tiffany Avenue and south of East Second Street.

A previous attempt to annex failed after Rochester’s Supreme Court Fourth Department Appellate Division denied the City of Jamestown’s petition to annex.

Additionally, officials say the March abstracts will also be submitted for approval of payments.
