County recognizes years of service

YATES COUNTY--The Yates County Legislature met on Monday, Jan. 9. During the meeting, legislators approved approximately two dozen resolutions, heard an update regarding the ongoing Cupola project, and recognized the service of county employees.
"As we enter the 200th anniversary of our county, we would not be where we are today without the hard work and devotion of our employees," said Chairwoman Leslie Church. "The employees that we are celebrating today have a combined 425 years of service from nine different departments. We appreciate the work and the years that these employees have dedicated to making Yates County a wonderful place to work and a beautiful place to live. The legislature will continue to support you in your years of service to continue keeping our county on our path of greatness. Each of you has been such a significant part of our team.

Legislators also heard an update from the cupola restoration project. The cupola is a structure from the 1800s that can be a focal point for the Yates County community for historic and educational purposes.
"We'd like to restore this building so that it's a place for people to have a visual exhibit of the history of the times," said Marsha Devine. "A prime location has been selected to position the cupola that is hoped to be a gateway to the downtown Penn Yan area and to the Outlet Trail from Penn Yan to Dresden. We're hoping that this will be something worthwhile for tourists as a destination, but also we really want to reach our children in schools. This would be a great tie-in to history classes, and it would be a wonderful way to learn how Penn Yan was industrialized."
The committee requested a letter of support from the legislators. Devine indicated the goal is to have the cupola restored and in place by the end of 2023.
