Max Oppen from the Mountain Eagle and Andrea Macko from Porcupine Soup report that village of Tannersville officials are talking about village dissolution. It has been more than a century since a Greene County village dissolved, but at a recent Village of Tannersville Board meeting, Mayor David Schneider proposed a resolution for the dissolution of the village and its subsequent merger with other entities. The resolution passed unanimously. Voters would have to approve the decision. The resolution says, “The Village Board of the Village of Tannersville hereby authorizes the mayor and/or his designee to commence the process by creating a committee, comprised of stakeholders, to study Village operations, analyze the potential impacts of restructuring options, formulate a plan, and vet the dissolution proposal with the public; and… that the mayor and/or his designee may retain experts and other consultants to assist the committee in its work." Tannersville is a village in Hunter, on the mountaintop in Greene County. Read more about this story in Porcupine Soup.
