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.

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.
