Some legislators would like to see move to ‘executive form’ of government in Cayuga County

Early next week the Cayuga County Legislature will hold its annual organizational meeting. The session identifies committee assignments, leadership roles, and typically sets the tone for the year the follows.

And it could mean some significant changes – depending how the governing body acts over the next few months.

Tucker Whitman, who served as chair of the legislature in 2019, has opted to not seek another. That means there will be new leadership this year.

Republican Tim Lattimore currently serves as Majority Vice Chair, and tells Finger Lakes News Radio that it might be time for change in the County Administrator’s office.



“We want to have our share of what’s out there. I don’t know whether our form of government really does it,” he explained. “We’ve tried that experiment, and it’s been a costly experiment.”

He indicated interest in seeing Cayuga County move to an executive form of government. Both Monroe and Onondaga counties utilize that form of organization.
