In Guilderland, the Dunkin’ Donuts in Star Plaza on Route 20 is rarity — a suburban shop without a drive-through. It’s now looking to change that. 

The project now moves to New Scotland’s Planning Board for site-plan approval.

Jonathan Phillips, the owner and president Phillips Hardware, said he thought that the roof began to collapse on the South Main Street barn sometime toward the end of November, and that the massive snowstorm that hit in mid-December “didn’t help,” adding, “That was probably the big factor, all that weight.”

While apartment approvals have been the Guilderland Planning Board’s bailiwick as of late, the board is now looking at approving a 58-lot single-family cluster subdivision near the intersection of Old State and Fuller Station roads 

A whole-building condemnation would ease the regulations, somewhat, related to the demolition of Crounse House. 

The Voorheesville Central School District is still waiting on about $167,000 in state aid that was withheld due to the pandemic.  

The decision to go remote was made after a teacher at Clayton A. Bouton High School in New Scotland tested positive for COVID-19 and contact-tracing revealed that a number of teachers would have to quarantine after coming into contact with their colleague.

Placards notifying the public that the Dutch Mill Acres Townhome application is slated to be heard at an upcoming Guilderland Town Board meeting were posted on Carman Road and Lone Pine Drive, according to an affidavit filed with the town, but no meeting date is listed on the sworn statement.   

 The owners of Pollard Disposal Services of Altamont in a note to customers  said in part, “We are writing this letter with excitement and dismay … It has come time to retire. The waste removal business is ever changing. New regulations and insurance requirements are weighing heavy on us. After looking around, we have decided to sell the waste company to Twin Bridges Waste and Recycling,”

Three months ago, the town of Guilderland asked Crossgates Mall to provide it with an income statement to show it was losing income and was in need of a nearly 50-percent cut in its tax assessment; the statement was never provided. The town has now demanded reams of financial data on what the mall charges its tenants for rent and what those tenants do in annual sales.
