The City of Albany Water Department will issue 100 licenses to hunters who live in Westerlo or Coeymans, or who are employees for the city of Albany, in an effort to cut down on the reservoir’s deer population. 

On Monday, a small fire broke out at one of the solar fields in Westerlo. Westerlo's Volunteer Fire Department Assistant Chief Don Filkins told The Enterprise that it was put out quickly and that, even if the fire had been allowed to burn, there would have been little to no risk to the public.

The surface of the bridge is being replaced, requiring a detour for passenger vehicles, buses, and trucks until mid-November, at which point only trucks will be required to detour. 

On the heels of the New York State Department of Health’s mask mandate for schools, the Berne-Knox-Westerlo Board of Education adopted a layered-mitigation opening plan to maximize flexibility inside of an evolving health crisis. 

The Berne Town Board reappointed Cheryl Baitsholts as the town’s dog-control officer, 4 to 1, but Baitsholts will reject the offer, she wrote in a letter to the Enterprise editor. 

A Facebook post by Westerlo Betty Filkins, wife of Westerlo Councilman Richard Filkins, incorrectly alleging that the town’s draft comprehensive plan would forbid motorized trails within the town has been shared more than 100 times, whipping the public into a misinformed frenzy and exemplifying the occasionally toxic effect social media has on local government.
