Another increase in prescription drug costs has pushed the Voorheesville budget deficit for the 2019-20 school year to over $600,000.

Stewart’s is moving forward in its attempt to build a new store at its current site at 1001 Altamont Blvd. The company will be before the Altamont Zoning Board of Appeals on April 9, seeking variances to construct the new shop.

At its monthly meeting, the Altamont Village Board voted, 3 to 2, to not hold a public hearing for the rezone of 120 Park Street.

The Altamont Village Board asked the planning board for its recommendation about an application the village board received from JNT Development, seeking to rezone 120 Park Street to allow for apartments to be built on the site.

Voorheesville will hold a public hearing on Thursday, March 28, to receive feedback from residents on the proposed law to update the village’s zoning code.

VOORHEESVILLE — The village’s proposed $2.64 million budget for next year is down significantly from this year’s budget of $3.23 million. The roughly $300,000 garnered from property taxes is below the state-set levy limit.

On Saturday, April 13, about 2,500 runners will participate in the first Helderberg-to-Hudson Half-Marathon. The race starts at New Scotland Town Park and ends at Jennings Landing in Albany.

The Voorheesville Dionysians spring musical, “Mamma Mia!” is pulling double duty this year. The group’s Saturday, March 22, performance will also be the drama club’s 50th anniversary celebration.

The Voorheesville School Board will have to make some deep cuts to next year’s budget to fill a gap created by an increase in prescription-drug costs.

The search will be confidential because the pool of applicants is small, riling some who are used to community and staff involvement in selecting school administrators.
