Rensselaerville’s building inspector, Mark Overbaugh, resigned last week saying a town board member was disrespectful.

Almost a year after Cypress Creek Renewables applied to build a solar array, the Westerlo Planning Board approved the project.

Parents and other community members will have a chance to review the Berne-Knox-Westerlo code of conduct either July 9 to 13, or July 23 to 27.

Scott Green who was fired by the town of Berne two years ago following a dispute over health insurance, was charged with harassment last month after apparently visiting town hall.

The P&L Deli in Westerlo was broken into Sunday night. Over $1,000 worth of cash and cigarettes was taken.

After town board members expressed concerns about insurance and other issues in posting banners to honor veterans, someone representing the town committee working on the project wrote letters critical of the town board.

After years of pushing to create a business district at the intersection of routes 156 and 157, the supervisor changed course to propose a multi-use district instead, which the Knox Town Board backed, 3 to 2.

For their "senior prank," students at Berne-Knox-Westerlo line up to gather donations on June 7 for their classmate, who has been afflicted with cancer.

As some Berne-Knox-Westerlo parents use a Facebook group to discuss bullying in the school, Superintendent Timothy Mundell announced that he would be working with community members to review the district’s code of conduct and other disciplinary measures.
