Formerly the county’s jail, the renamed Albany County Corrections and Rehabilitative Services Center will soon be able to provide housing and services to 100 people, chiefly to the recently paroled and area homeless.

ALBANY COUNTY — Josephine Nakajigo, 40, of Voorheesville was among nine people in Albany County arrested this week for welfare fraud, county spokeswoman Mary Rozak said on Wednesday.

As part of the state’s ambitious climate law that was passed last month, by 2030, the Climate Leadership and Community Protection Act states, 70 percent of New York’s electricity has to come from renewable sources, and, by 2040, all electricity in the state is to be generated from 100-percent carbon-free sources. Currently, New York is far from its 2030 goal and has just over a decade to try to almost double the number of renewable energy sources in the state. 

Under a new policy of the Albany Roman Catholic Diocese, no one can access personnel records alone, said spokeswoman Mary DeTurris Poust. Only the diocesan chancellor and archivist now have access to personnel files, and only if they are together.
