The New Scotland Planning Board granted Cynthia Elliott a special-use permit to have 15 events per season on Brownrigg Road. The board also heard plans for a residential subdivision and for a retail center.

A piece of history that Joe Merli salvaged now has a place of honor on the Gas Up grounds.

When the old Mobil station in Duanesburg was demolished, Merli had saved its cupola.

On May 16, school district voters will decided on a $1,171,500 Voorheesville Public Library budget for next year. The spending plan, after two years of no increase, is up slightly but still under the state’s tax levy limit.

The village board adopted a $2.3 million budget, which will keep tax rates flat, and also expressed interest in working to get a green grant.

ALTAMONT — Elizabeth Scott grew up along the Bozenkill in a post-and-beam solar house on land her parents named Sumac Ridge for the clumps of sumac that dotted the landscape.

A long-time board member, C. James Coffin, and a newcomer, Robert Samson, are guaranteed seats on the Voorheesville School Board as no one else is in the running.

When the state budget was finalized, a week after deadline, the Voorheesville schools came out $55,000 ahead of what the governor had proposed in aid, allowing the addition of two part-time teachers.

A lawyer representing the owners said, “Smitty’s is going to close. Period. What is going in there...will not drastically affect village lives.” 

Peter Blackman, owner of Altamont’s fine-dining restaurant, has made the fare and prices more accessible since it bought it in June. The eatery now has a new name as well.

Three of the many conditions the planning board wants to require for Cynthia Elliott to get a special-use permit to run a party business on her property don’t sit well with her.
