Police Survey Controversy Continues in Owego

By Jason Weinstein.
One issue in Owego that will not be decided during Tuesday's election is a controversial survey regarding the Village's police department.

Two men brought the suit against Mayor Kevin Millar, the Village of Owego, and the Owego Board of Trustees. The suit seeks to keep the village from the survey from being distributed.

The survey asks residents if they prefer to keep the police force the same size, increase it, or abolish it. Judge Eugene Faughnan kept the village from moving forward with the poll on January 8th. Both sides argued their case before Judge Faughnan on January 28th. The two sides will return to court on March 28th at 9:30am.
