Village officials hope to get a piece of a $50 million federal grant to build a rail museum in Voorheesville at the head of a rail trail to Albany.

VOORHEESVILLE — The three unopposed village officials retained their seats in the election Tuesday thanks to a paltry 46 voters.

The village has 2,789 residents, according to the 2010 federal census.

“Obviously, it was a quiet night in Voorheesville,” said Village Clerk-Treasurer Linda Pasquali.

VOORHEESVILLE — Village elections will go to incumbents later this month, as three open slots go uncontested.

Mayor Robert Conway, 60, is seeking his third four-year term as mayor, after previously serving as a village trustee for four years. He is currently the human-resources manager for the City of Rensselaer.

The PTA is trying something different by hosting a well known children's songwriter and singer to perform a fund-raising concert.

The Voorheesville Village Board has stayed under the state levy limit since it was enacted, and hopes to again, but has passed a law to exceed the cap — just in case.

The Altamont Rescue Squad is planning a half-million-dollar expansion of its building, which it considers to be cramped.

Two neighbors are at odds as they grieve over their dead animals. One shot the other's dog after his birds were attacked.

Citizens made progress in 2013 towards getting a Quiet Zone to silence train whistles and a feuding village board made peace with its ambulance squad as they worked on a contract at year's end.

Hometown traditions persisted in Altamont in 2013 despite fire and arrests.

After months of increasingly bitter disputes, the village and Voorheesville Area Ambulance Service, on the cusp of a new contract, are working together to resolve differences.
