Court To Hear City Of Jamestown’s Latest Push To Annex BPU Substation

ROCHESTER – The City of Jamestown’s second push to annex a Board of Public Utilities substation in the Town of Ellicott will be heard next month in court. 

According to the New York State Fourth Appellate Division website, arguments for the annexation case are scheduled for Jan. 4th. The court denied a petition for the city to annex in 2019, and the city moved to fight the matter again the next year.

Meanwhile, both the Town of Ellicott and Village of Falconer have twice moved to deny the annexation.

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 Falconer School District annually.

A decision from the court, however, may not be made for several months.
