Voorheesville Trustees Richard Straut and Sarita Winchell were unopposed for their seats in this month’s village election. Just 74 of 2,010 registered voters turned out on Tuesday, March 19.

Running on the Altamont First line, Nicholas Fahrenkopf was the top vote-getter with 210. His running mate, Michelle Ganance, garnered  193 votes. Fahrenkopf had been on the board since 2015; Ganance was appointed just this past year. They ran on their records.

Daniel Barker, Altamont’s new historian, would like to scan historic documents and make local oral history available on the village’s website.

A proposal from the New Scotland Historical Association is looking to save New Scotland and Voorheesville’s historic homes and sites.

The Federal Communications Commission in an effort to hasten the launch and adoption of 5G technology and infrastructure in September 2018 issued an order that has towns, cities, counties, and states scrambling to pass laws to protect their own interests from the FCC order.
