Pyramid’s new proposals related to the apartment complex it hopes to build on Rapp Road include dead-ending Rapp Road to prevent through traffic, and moving the end of Gipp Road.

The newcomer running for the board for the first time is a lieutenant colonel in the Air National Guard.

The current wait for a hold on an e-book is 39-and-a-half days, compared to a week for a print book.

The goal of the renovation, Director Timothy Wiles said, is to give the library enough space to meet current demand. He anticipates that the improvements would serve for another quarter-century.

GUILDERLAND — After many years without a contested race, this May 21st, five candidates are vying for three seats on the Guilderland Public Library Board of Trustees. Two are incumbents — Barbara Fraterrigo and Barry Nelson — and three are newcomers: Catherine Barber, Mark Keeling, and Philip Metzger.

More vehicles travel the portion of Western Avenue between Route 155 and Carman Road every day — over 40,000 — than travel along Wolf Road in front of Colonie Center.

Co-conspirator and former Guilderland Town Justice Richarad Sherwood had planned to testify against Thomas Lagan. Asked if that was why Lagan had decided to plead guilty after many months of preparing to fight the charges, Lagan’s attorney E. Stewart Jones said, “Obviously that was not helpful.”

Two of the six IDA members voted to grant real-estate relief to local businessman Jonathan Phillips to help with his construction project of building a new, bigger hardware store and adding a convenience store with gas pumps, at the corner of Routes 146 and 158.

In the future, the lot just behind the proposed Stewart’s may be occupied by a bank or some kind of office or shop, according to a Stewart’s representative.

Pyramid officials learned recently that if their plans for an apartment complex at Rapp and Gipp roads is to go forward, they must meet and talk with residents of Gipp Road, Pine Lane — which is just east of Gipp — and Westmere Terrace.
