Water rate changes on tap in Fleischmanns

By Jay Braman Jr.
If you are a full-time resident in the Village of Fleischmanns, chances are you are paying too much for water.
On the other side of the coin, if you are a summer resident, you are probably paying too little.
While, in reality, it is a bit more complex than that, the bottom line is that village officials believe the current arrangment is unfair and they are at work now to make changes to the water district’s billing to even costs out.

Catskill Heritage Alliance vows to keep fighting the resort

in

By Jay Braman Jr.
The Catskill Heritage Alliance (CHA) is trying to keep a court battle going over the fate of the Belleayre Resort at Catskill Park.
It was announced last week that the state Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC) had completed its review of the resort’s draft Final Environmental Impact Statement (FEIS) and gave it a passing grade. But before the department’s commissioner can sign off and allow the process to move to the permitting phase, a court case brought in 2007 against the resort must be settled.
OK with DEC

Mayor OKs public vote on Fleischmanns bio fuel plan

By Jay Braman Jr.
The Mayor of Fleischmanns has put out word that the people of that small village can be the ones to decide if they want a $14 million biofuel project installed for the entire community, a project that will bring an estimated 15 percent saving on heat bills for the next 10 years or so.
Earlier this month, several residents appeared at the village board meeting with a list of over 30 questions about the project, which has been under discussion for a couple of years.
On Monday, Mayor Todd Pascarella released a response to all of those questions.
