Sullivan County Legislator Ira Steingart has filed an Article 78 proceeding in State Supreme Court contending the legislature was wrong when it voted to lower the number of votes needed to remove a county manager. Local law had required six votes and when that couldn’t be accomplished months ago, the majority voted to lower that to five, but an agreement was reached for the county to pay then Manager David Fanslau $80,000 and to negotiate a separation agreement.
