Jim Planck is reporting in The Daily Mail complaints of parking and trespassing near a popular Palenville swimming hole were once again brought to the Catskill Town Board at a meeting Wed., Jul. 15. The board took action on similar complaints last summer, and placed boulders and no parking signs on the sections of Woodstock and Kaaterskill avenues, nearest to the Kaaterskill Creek Bridge. Mill Lane residents told the board Wednesday the parking problem has recurred and that many of the no-parking signs have disappeared. They asked that parking once again be regulated and controlled. Deputy Highway Superintendent Patrick McCulloch told the board posting no-parking signs would not solve the problem because without a local law to define the no-parking zone, enforcement cannot take place. Board members promised to look into the process, and asked the town attorney to research the matter. Read the full story in The Daily Mail.
