SOUTH BRISTOL, N.Y. (AP) - The billionaire owner of a New York-based payroll services company says he’s not paying his school taxes until local officials get rid of the geese at his lakefront home.

Tom Golisano says he’s withholding his $90,000 school tax payment until town of South Bristol officials do something about all the geese poop being left on the lawn of his home on Canandaigua (kan-un-DAY’-gwuh) Lake.

Golisano says up to 200 geese gather on his lawn at any given time. He says it’s up to the town to protect his property from what he considers a public health problem.

Town officials say they sympathize with Golisano, but no public agencies have been able to come up with a solution to his geese problem.

Golisano, founder of Rochester-based Paychex Inc., is a former owner of the NHL’s Buffalo Sabres.
