TV show asks $20,000 to shoot episode about Potsdam


POTSDAM - A television show hosted by ‘70s football legend Terry Bradshaw has expressed interest in shooting an episode about Potsdam, but they are asking $20,000 to do so.

Town Supervisor Marie C. Regan told town board members Tuesday she had received a call from a representative of “Today in America with Terry Bradshaw,” a syndicated show about economic development in American communities.

After a 20-minute conversation that included plenty of questions about the state of the town, the representative told Ms. Regan that the show was interested in shooting an episode about Potsdam, but the town would need to provide $20,000.

Ms. Regan told the board she would investigate to learn more about the show.

“We are not about to cut a check,” she said.

In other business, the board voted 4-0 to approve the appointment of a new part-time code enforcement technician, after briefly meeting in executive session. Councilwoman Rosemaria Rivezzi was not present.

Michael D. Boysuk will begin work on July 11. He was hired at $14.10 an hou, and will work 15 hours weekly. His primary responsibility will be inspecting rental properties and other buildings.

Mr. Boysuk was the only eligible candidate who met the eligible civil-service requirements, Ms. Regan said. He works full-time as a fire marshal at Fort Drum.

The board also unanimously voted to create of a town code of ethics. A three-person ethics board of community volunteers will be created to investigate any ethical complaints regarding the town.
