BERNE — The bridge carrying Route 443 over the Fox Creek in Berne closed on Monday, June 29, and is scheduled to re-open on Aug. 31 as part of an ongoing rehabilitation project.

KNOX — The town board wants to set a town-wide speed limit of 35 miles per hour, a move Supervisor Michael Hammond said is predicated on safety and has been studied for years.

The change would only apply to town roads that aren’t otherwise posted with a speed limit.

Flooding from a collapsed beaver’s dam closed Route 443 near Route 85 on Wednesday, but public safety and public works teams cleared the road soon after.

Police knocked on doors in the Rensselaerville hamlet last month after a councilman called and complained about cars parked on the street. The response from residents was called a "small uproar" by the sheriff.

Kenneth Weaver, who resigned from the post in September, confronted the town's supervisor publicly because his health insurance had been canceled, but the supervisor pointed to a provision in the employee handbook making Weaver ineligible after 2013.
