Update: Amherst's 'major announcement'

UPDATE: Amherst wins settlement of millions in "Bissell case"


Amherst Supervisor Barry A. Weinstein will make a "major announcement" this afternoon regarding town finances and a controversial lawsuit, his staff said this morning.

The announcement centers around the "Bissell case," a legal dispute with the state insurance agency that has dragged on for years.

We reported recently that the lawsuit has been a drain on the town's otherwise sunny financial outlook. Judges have even advised the town on how to collect the money it says it is owed. 

Sources say the announcement this afternoon will be a positive one for the town. Weinstein missed last night's Town Board meeting because of an unexpected downtown meeting regarding the case, so this may be the break the town has been looking for.
