Endicott Votes 'No' on Police Merger with County
9/10/2013 (Updated 11:19:14 PM)By a three to one vote, the Endicott Board voted Tuesday night to end discussions to merge its police force with the Broome County Sheriff's Department.
Mayor John Bertoni says he was keeping an open mind on the issue, but for others, emotions prevailed.
Bertoni says 5.4 million dollars of the village's 12.3 million dollar budget goes for police protection--and thinks the issue should have been discussed further.
