Sarah Trafton is reporting for Columbia-Greene Media Greene County residents can no longer obtain pistol permits in Catskill. While the sheriff’s office has a civil office in the county office building to handle evictions, foreclosures, subpoenas and levies, pistol permits are not a civil action. As a result, residents must now go to the office's temporary location in Coxsackie or to its satellite office in Jewett. “I find it appalling that residents can no longer get a pistol permit in the county seat,” Legislator Matthew Luvera, a Republican who represents Catskill, said March 19. Sheriff Greg Seeley said a Catskill satellite office is not in the cards for the remainder of his term. Seeley will retire at the end of the year, after 12 years in office. Republican sheriff candidates Diana Benoit and Pete Kusminsky support expanding the permitting services in Catskill. Read the full story at HudsonValley360 [dot] com.
