Sep 26, 2018 7:15 am
Parry Teasdale is reporting for The Columbia Paper on the latest news from the village of Chatham. Mayor Tom Curran has appointed Pete Minahan to fill the board seat vacated by Gunnar Wordon. Wordon resigned in August and has moved out of the area. Curran said Wordon resigned to focus on college commitments. The board approved the resignation of Victoria Hill as Village Court Clerk, and approved the appointment of Paula Wright to take her place. The board also agreed to pay for advertising to hire a part-time DPW worker during leaf pick-up season. DPW manager Phil Genovese said most of his crew will be busy installing a new water storage tank at the village reservoir. He emphasized that the new position was budgeted for and the village has used part-time help before. The board also approved a two-year loan of $30,000 from the Bank of Greene County for the purchase of a new police vehicle. And Assistant Fire Chief John Howe said village firefighters responded to 31 calls in August. “One of the busiest months I can remember in many, many a year,” he said. Howe said volunteers worked 20 hours straight during one of the heavy rain storms to help deal with flooding. The next Chatham Village Board meeting will be held 7 p.m., October 11 at 7 p.m. in the Tracy Memorial. Read the full story in The Columbia Paper.
