Chatham, Ghent leaders in zoning dispute

Apr 29, 2016 12:05 am
Parry Teasdale has a long story in The Columbia Paper detailing something of a border war between Chatham and Ghent. Chatham Mayor Tom Curran recently discovered a slight change in Ghent zoning that could allow businesses that handle toxic materials to operate within the watershed that supplies drinking water to the Village Chatham and parts of the hamlet of Ghent. Ghent Supervisor Mike Benvenuto responded by calling the mayor’s concerns “insulting” and an “attack” on his town. At first Benvenuto said he would vote against appointing a Ghent resident who lives in the Village of Chatham to the committee in charge of revising the zoning laws. "He subsequently relented on the appointment, but the underlying issue remains to be resolved," Teasdale writes. Read the full story in The Columbia Paper.
