ALTAMONT — After months of packed village meetings as Stewart’s proposed an expansion that would have required a zoning change, its bid failed Tuesday night with a tied village board vote, 2 to 2.

A zoning change requires a majority vote.

Village trustee Cathy Glass had resigned on Oct. 1 for personal reasons, the mayor said. Glass had already announced that she would recuse herself from any vote on the Stewart’s zoning change request, because she had formerly served on the planning board.
