The neighborhood surrounding a state DOT garage in Voorheesville was jarred by an early-morning explosion caused by trucks that were on fire.

David and Anita Sperbeck, who live near the state’s Department of Transportation facility in Voorheesville, were awakened in the early hours of Friday morning and took video of the three trucks that were burning at the facility, at the intersection of routes 156 and 85A near the village’s roundabout.

Robert Davies stepped in following JoAnne Davies departure from the planning board. Amid much new development, he now looks to help shape New Scotland’s future.  

Razor-thin margins in the New Scotland Conservative primary has the race too close to call.

A plan from the Voorheesville Central School District that will forgo the construction of a new bus garage in favor of leasing space from Albany County would save taxpayers $3 million over 30 years, school leaders say.

After over a year of meetings and multiple redesigns, a development off of Route 85A was given conditional approval by the New Scotland Planning Board to move forward. Also at the meeting, the board asked, “What constitutes a flashing sign?”

Doreen Saia, the new president of the Voorheesville Central School Board, is looking forward to collaborating with the school board, and administration, to sustain the success the district has had.

The New Scotland Republican Party will field only one challenger for town offices this fall. One Republican Committee member lays some partial blame on national politics.
