Emilia Teasdale is reporting for The Columbia Paper on the November 18, Kinderhook Town Board meeting. At that meeting, the board approved waiving the marriage license fee for active-duty members of the military. The Bank of Greene County was named its official bank, after Town Supervisor Pat Grattan said the bank has offered to collect town taxes at no charge, a service that would save the town approximately $6,400. The board authorized a five-year contract with the Valatie Rescue Squad, reflecting a $120,000 increase for 2020, as well as a $100,000 increase in both 2021 and 2022. The rate will then remain at about $504,000 until 2024. And the town board has been in discussions with Valatie Mayor Diane Argyle about the potential expansion of village offices at the Martin H. Glynn Building. Argyle said the village would not move forward with any expansion for two months, when all involved have had the opportunity to comment on a proposed new layout. The Kinderhook Town Board will next meet, Mon., Dec. 16. Read the full story in The Columbia Paper.
