County Looking for Lost Property Map Worth $1M

QUEENSBURY, N.Y. (AP) — Officials in Warren County are trying to find a lost property map that could save taxpayers nearly $1 million.

The Glens Falls Post-Star reports that the map, missing since at least 2005, is believed to show aviation easements on property around the county airport dating to the early 1940s.

It could possibly save the county from having to pay $930,000 for new easements and property purchases requested by the Federal Aviation Administration. County leaders believe they already have needed easements, but without the map they can’t prove it. So the supervisors agreed earlier this year to buy new easements.

Members of Upstate New York Taxpayers Advocates have made an issue of the decision to spend money rather than try to find the map or pursue litigation.
