About the study
On November 18, 2009, the Village of Victory received a dissolution petition which requires the Village Board of Trustees to form a dissolution study committee. The Village applied for, and was awarded, a New York State Local Government Efficiency (LGE) grant to fund the study. The Village Board appointed a Study Committee comprised of both village and town-outside residents. The Study Committee is following the requirements of NYS Law Article 19 for the dissolution of villages. As part of the requirements, the Study Committee will prepare a draft dissolution plan and alternatives to dissolution which will be submitted to the Village Board. In the fall of 2011, the Village Board engaged the Center for Governmental Research (CGR), a nonpartisan consulting organization, to provide technical assistance to the Study Committee. The Committee expects to present its initial draft plan to the public for input in the spring/summer of 2012.
