Former Voorheesville girls’ varsity basketball coach Robert Baron’s lawsuit against the school district remains a protracted affair; the latest holdup comes because of the district’s objection to giving Baron records of an investigation into allegations of player bullying. 

For the second straight month, the Altamont Village Board pushed off its decision on rezoning 107-109 Helderberg Ave.

Confusion about Voorheesville’s proposed sewer project had residents seeking answers from the village board at its monthly meeting.

Joining a nationwide movement of farmer-florists, twin sisters Taylor Ten Eyck and Morgan Willy recently started their own company called Twin Dahlias Flowers. When it’s completely up and running, the business will not only grow flowers but also create bouquets and arrangements for sale. 

Voorheesville recently had a study performed to assess the feasibility of placing sewer lines in and around Main Street and Voorheesville Avenue. With the study in hand, the village is now looking for grants to help defray the project’s $3.6 million cost.

With the cost of most things knowing only one direction — up — local municipalities have the opportunity to help their residential electricity customers slash their bills by, perhaps, two-thirds.  

Citing the need for further review, the Altamont Board of Trustees made no decision on the rezone of 107-109 Helderberg Ave.


VOORHEESVILLE — The two women who keep Voorheesville running like a well-oiled machine, received the bureaucratic equivalent of rave reviews for their handling of the village’s billing, collection, and enforcement of water and sewer charges, according to a recently released state audit.
