Spring Valley Mayor Threatens Village Shut Down

According to a report by the Journal News the village of Spring Valley is under the threat of shutting down, while officials debate over insurance problems. Mayor Demeza Delhomme told the newspaper that the trustees hired an insurance firm, Bauer-Crowley even though he was in favor of continuing with the village’s usual broker Leonard Binder. The mayor stated that Dennis Lynch, an attorney representing the trustees, has a connection with Bauer-Crowley and that’s the reason why they chose to hire the firm, though Lynch informed the news source that the board was offered a deal to sign on with the firm, lowering the $108,000 binder’s fee to $20,000 and he has no connection with the company outside of the village. Delhomme is now threatening to shut down the village. The board voted last week to review the $2.2 million in insurance coverage and that could be invalidated on Wednesday at 12:00 AM if a shutdown occurs and the mayor has claimed that he will bring the issue to court if it’s not resolved.
