More conflicts of interest alleged in Coeymans

Mar 30, 2023 12:11 pm

Steve Hughes reports in the Times Union that Coeymans officials are being accused of interference in a business proposal from Long Energy, a direct competitor to the town planning and zoning board chair's own business. Long Energy wants to put a propane storage terminal in the town along the Hudson River in southern Albany County. Long Energy‘s President Bob Long Jr. and two company attorneys told the newspaper that they see as a pattern of obstruction and interference by Coeymans Supervisor George McHugh and Planning Board Chair Robert Nolan. Previously the newspaper reported that McHugh signed a lease last December for new town offices on a property owned by Nolan. So Coeymans is paying $2,000 a month in rent and paid for upgrades to a property owned by the planning board chair's business, Nolan Propane. Read more about this story in the Times Union.
