Sara Cline reports in the Albany Times Union that the Coeymans town board voted 3-2 March 28 for a Clean Air Law limiting the burning of waste and tires in the southern Albany County town. LafargeHolcim, a large company in the town, attempted to rewrite the law before the vote so it could burn scrap tires in its cement kiln on Route 9W across from Ravena-Coeymans-Selkirk High School. LafargeHolcim took out a full-page advertisement in the Ravena News-Herald newspaper last week urging votes against the air pollution law. James Youmans, Tom Dolan, and Coeymans Supervisor Philip Crandall voted for the measure, while Daniel Baker and Kenneth Burns voted against the Clean Air Law.
