Dissolution: A Historical Perspective

by Sarah Cedeño, Village Historian

I write this from the office in the Emily Knapp Museum on the night of the referendum to dissolve the Village of Brockport. This is a reoccurrence from 2010, but what some might not know is that the dissolution controversy was formerly called a ‘merger’ and it surfaced in the summer of 1974, and was considered as early as 1972.

Keep in mind these articles are forty years old, and the contained information pertains only to that context.

Here are the July-August 1974 articles from The Times-Union in chronological order:
