A commission charged with mapping Voorheesville’s future has surveyed business owners and will hold a session to hear their ideas on Feb. 16. Another session is scheduled for Jan. 26 to hear from cultural groups.

Six months after being fired by St. Peter’s, Hedy Migden is practicing medicine again — as part of an independent practice — and has filed a $2 million claim against St. Peter’s and its parent company.

While Knox last month decided not to invest in an appraisal of its Altamont reservoir property, the village board on Tuesday committed to spending $11,000 for an appraisal to prove in court that the property should not be valued, or taxed, as a reservoir since it is no longer used for that purpose.
