Jul 01, 2013 6:50 am
Some of the stories that made the news, June 28 through July 1, 2013:

The Mid-Hudson News Network reported an audit of the city of Hudson’s books by the New York State Comptroller’s Office found each department used a different process to collect, report and remit cash to the city treasurer. State inspectors said the city should develop a centralized, formal cash-collection procedures for all departments. The audit, covering the period from Jan. 1, 2011 to Oct. 31, 2012, found the city failed to maintain general ledger accounting records or perform formal bank reconciliations for the clerk’s bank account.

Michael Ryan reported in The Daily Mail the Prattsville GOP gathered over the weekend and named candidates for eight positions on the November ballot. Candidates named were: Frank Cangelosi (Town Supervisor), Donald Schoenborn and Emily Morse (Town Board); William Sutton (Highway Superintendent); Robert Blain and Michelle Blain (Town Judge); Kathleen Sherman (Town Clerk); and, Carole Cangelos (Tax Collector). The caucus filled the town hall and many attendees were forced to stand outside. A splinter group within the committee put forward candidates and a platform of their own during the meeting. The caucus is traditionally held in August or September, but was held several months early this year due to the committee's desire to get its "Unite Prattsville" message out to voters as soon as possible.

Matt Bathrick reported in the Columbia Paper the town of Ghent held a public hearing last week on a proposed local law regulating concerts, exhibitions and festivals by requiring special use permits and imposing new restrictions. The proposal would also increase the penalties for violating the town zoning code. The law would allow a town resident to hold events that fall under the proposed definitions of concerts, festivals and exhibitions, but would require the resident to first obtain a special permit from the Planning Board. It would also set a limit of two events per calendar year at any one site, with no event lasting longer than two days. The law would ban racetracks except for temporary courses that can be immediately dismantled following an event. Read the full story in the Columbia Paper.
