MAYVILLE – It was a paperwork mix-up that is to blame for a miscommunication between some Chautauqua County legislators and the County Executive. Earlier this week, legislators Paula DeJoy (D-Jamestown) and Tom DeJoe (D-Brocton) sent a letter to County Executive Greg Edwards, asking for a jobs report from Edwards, detailing the number and types of jobs created by the county in recent years. The letter was a follow-up to one that was initially sent to Edwards in May and to which they never received a response.
According to the Jamestown Post-Journal, Edwards has responded to the legislators’ request, apologizing for not responding sooner, but said the letter had never arrived in his office – although it was read during the May voting session of the county legislator.
The county executive also informed the legislators that he has asked Planning and Economic Development Director Bill Daly to complete the data they have requested. The information will be presented during the Legislator’s Planning and Economic Development meeting in January.
