WESTERLO — The committee working to increase broadband access in rural Westerlo wants to draft a new agreement with Mid-Hudson cable. The committee is asking residents who want service to make their needs known.
A chimney fire was put out by the Westerlo Fire Department Wednesday morning. Two residents, including a lifetime member of the department, escaped, but the house will have to be rebuilt after its chimney was knocked down to control the rest of the fire inside.
A fire in Westerlo that occurred two days before Christmas has the family living in town without a home, although fire departments were able to save their pets and presents. A community response, including an account to donate to, has sprung up in response.
