CATTARAUGUS REVISES CODE ON DISCLOSURES

By a vote of 19-2 Cattaraugus County legislators Wednesday adopted a revised disclosure statement.

Most legislators sat down immediately and answered the four questions complying with the filing requirement for 1993.

Democrats Larry Mack of Humphrey and Kenneth McClune of Salamanca voted against the change from a multipage form which focused on financial information for legislators and other county officials.

The only speaker at a public hearing on the change was Jeanne Giambrone of Napoli who objected to filing the forms with the county attorney rather than the county clerk.

An excluded item is property owned in the county or within a 5-mile radius of it.

During a debate on the matter, Majority Leader Richard Haberer, R-Franklinville, said Mack did not file a form last year. Mack denied the charge and the county attorney was sent to check the records.

County Attorney Dennis V. Tobolski confirmed Mack's form was not on file.

When Mack asked for names of other legislators who had not filed, he was told by Legislature Chairman Don B. Winship to "make a formal request."

Winship and Haberer later agreed it was unfair to name only Mack as a delinquent, but said they could not identify the others.
