Some of the stories that made the news, Sept. 27 to Sept. 30:

Kyle Adams reported in The Daily Mail the Catskill Village Board this week moved forward with plans to renovate the village’s police station on Main Street. The board received three bids on the project to renovate the station’s entrance; all three bids were rejected and the board resolved to use in-house contractors and the Department of Public Works for the job. The renovation calls for construction in two phases, first on the left side of the front area and then on the right. A lobby will be created, the front desk will be moved to the left, some communications equipment will be upgraded and the front window will be open. Read the full story in The Daily Mail.

Nathan Mayberg reported in the Register Star the state Comptroller’s Office announced that it has received financial reports from Columbia County, the towns of Chatham, Clermont, Germantown and the Greene County town of Lexington. The financial data was meant to determine if the county or the towns were undergoing any fiscal stress. None of the six municipalities were deemed to be in stress, with five of them far below the standard for approaching fiscal stress. The latest Comptroller's report showed Rockland County as one of the most significantly stressed municipalities statewide, followed by Suffolk County in Long Island and St. Lawrence County, located in the far northern part of the state.
