that the Kinderhook Village Board has received a petition from residents who want a committee to consider sharing the village Department of Public Works services with the town. The residents’ petition also asks that discussions about the DPW be open to the public and involve community input. The Kinderhook village DPW building burned down May 25 in an accidental fire, with the village losing most equipment. Since then, the village has borrowed equipment from the town and other municipalities. “We’ll get our figures together and I would like to talk to the Village of Valatie and the town,” Mayor Carol Weaver said. The next Kinderhook village board meeting is at 7:30 p.m. August 12. Read the full story in The Columbia Paper.
