Highland Comp Plan approaches adoption

The town has sent a letter to Senator John Bonacic, Assemblywoman Aileen Gunther and Congressman Maurice Hinchey questioning the viability of the current plan to replace the historic Pond Eddy Bridge with a new bridge. “They want to build a $12 million bridge to service 12 homes,” said Boyar. “It would serve no benefit to New York State, but New York State would be spending $4 million and as you know, things are being cut in Albany that involve education and health and more. We’re in a crisis and I don’t think it’s a time to be spending money unwisely.”

A public hearing was scheduled for 6:45 p.m. on March 13 at the town hall to accept comments on a draft Code of Ethics policy for the town board. Call Boyar at 845/557-8901 for more information.
