Cornell University refuses to increase annual funds given to town of Ithaca

Today the debate continues as to whether or not Cornell University should pay the town of Ithaca more money annually. Currently, Cornell University voluntarily pays the town of Ithaca between $1.25 million and $6 million a year, for fire protection and “other municipal services” since a large amount of university property is not taxable. Ithaca mayor Myrick asked Cornell’s president Skorton in 2012 for an increase in funding and has been denied repeatedly. This January 15th, Skorton yet again refused to raise the Ivy League’s annual allotment to the town and has denied interview requests concerning the matter. There is a long history of disagreements among the town of Ithaca and Cornell University stemming back to 1995 when the current memorandum of understanding was first formed. For more news concerning this debate, look for an overview of Myrick’s study concerning universities and towns in similar situations throughout the US in the Ithaca Times tomorrow February 12th
