ONONDAGA COUNTY, N.Y. -- County executives and chairs from around the state are in Central New York this week, discussing topics that are impacting their communities.
The fall seminar will go over issues like hydrofracking, Medicaid reform, green energy and public safety and health, providing leaders a chance to share ideas and work together to establish strategies.
The New York State Association of Counties knows it is a challenging time for county leaders, but believes these conferences help to hone in on common issues.
"You know, when there are challenges of such magnitude, solutions have to be found because this cannot extend ad nauseum. We have got to find solutions to the problems that confront us this year," said Mary Pat Hancock, Genesee County Chair and President of NYSAC.
Leaders from all 62 counties were invited to attend. The conference runs through Friday.
