Berne

The new playground at Berne Town Park in Berne was officially opened last Saturday.

A dispute between former Berne employee Scott Green and Supervisor Kevin Crosier was noted a year later in an election letter to The Enterprise, raising the question of whether Green’s long-time partner, Timothy Lippert, could have received benefits as a dependent despite being unmarried.

A Doppler radar tower that is based in East Berne and supplies information for most of the Capital Region was out of service for over two weeks, leaving meteorologists to look to other means of predicting the weather.

A county-wide shared services plan includes an option to further study whether the to consolidate Berne’s highway department with the Albany County Department of Public Works. Many steps would follow approval of the very first one.

BERNE — The Berne Republican Committee is hosting a Music in the Park event on Wednesday, Aug. 23, from 5 to 9 p.m. as a benefit for the party.

The event, at the Berne town park, is billed as “Two Great Bands — One Great Evening: Friends, Neighbors and Fun.” The two bands are The Henchmen and Thick As thieves.

Children and adults played through the day to a backdrop of live music in the Berne town park Summerfest on July 22.

Both Republicans and Democrats nominated a full slate of candidates, including for town supervisor, highway superintendent, and two seats on the town board.

The schedule was moved up by about a year, and the town intends to request the speed limit be lowered along the route following its repaving.

Following a crash in Berne that ripped apart a pickup truck and left two injured, one in critical condition, the driver of the vehicle is scheduled to be released from the hospital today and arraigned in court. Apparently intoxicated at the time of the accident, he is facing numerous charges.

The town of Berne will soon be getting a new playground at its town park. The town is also working on a long-term project to set up a natural playground, which uses materials from nature to let children play.
