Supervisors reject eminent domain resolution

Oct 10, 2013 6:35 am
Joe Gentile is reporting in the Register Star the Columbia County Board of Supervisors Wed., Oct. 9, rejected a resolution to table plans to expand the county airport safety zone through eminent domain. The proposition, put forward by Ancram Town Supervisor Art Bassin, failed to gain the required two-thirds majority to pass. The resolution would have rescinded all resolutions previously approved by the board to allow the purchase or use of eminent domain to acquire the property owned by Carmen Nero and his partners. Bassin led the calls to table the acquisition process, expressing skepticism about the Federal Aviation Administration’s runway requirements and other airport improvements, estimated to cost anywhere from $8 million to $13 million.
