Corfu trustees and residents expected to have more issues to debate at tonight's meeting

The Village of Corfu Trustees meet again tonight at 6:30 and sources say there will be much discussion of issues that have come up in the past few days related to Mayor Ralph Peterson.
Peterson's actions continue to draw criticism from fellow trustees and residents.
Items expected to be discussed tonight, according to sources:
- Peterson may have hired two or three police officers without board approval;
- Peterson reportedly continuing to try and block Al Graham, a supervisor with the company that runs the sewer plant, from being on sewer plant property.
Trustee Ken Lauer shared this e-mail he received from Peterson:
I had a conversation with the Camden Owner today. He informed (me that) you said I approved Al Graham to be on Village Property. I did no such thing! That was an outright lie! We never discussed this topic.
Maybe my typo was correct!
The last sentence refers to an e-mail Peterson allegedly sent to trustees spelling Lauer's last name as "Liar."
Lauer said he's concerned that Peterson is looking for ways to block a sewer project that could be critical to economic development in the Pembroke area.
Mark Boylan, attorney for the Village of Corfu, is expected to attend the meeting.
That's for sure, Ed. And cue up the circus music....
