According to town Supervisor George Kaye, the possibility of going solar would impact the Town Hall and Highway Garage buildings.

MILLERTON — The holidays are just around the corner. So, too, then are the holiday meals that accompany this festive time of year, shared with so many friends and family.

Town land annexed to the village

editor@millertonnews.com

NORTH EAST — The Town Board entertained a request from the village of Millerton to annex two parcels of land currently owned by the village but located within the town. The matter was raised at the Town Board monthly meeting held in October. 
“For years now, they’ve been paying taxes on this land to the town,” said North East town Supervisor George Kaye. “We felt it only right and necessary, first of all, that one municipality should not be paying taxes to another municipality.”

It’s back to the drawing board in North East garage hunt

editor@millertonnews.com

NORTH EAST  — The search for a new highway garage — or a site on which to build a new highway garage — has not been simple for the North East Town Board. 
For more than a year the town has gone before the public with ideas. Buying Dutchess County Diesels and renovating the two-parcel site for $3.15 million was nixed by a public referendum.
