Rudd Pond weed control: Broken harvester leaves town searching for solutions

editor@millertonnews.com

NORTH EAST — It might sound strange to think of a weed harvester as an important piece of municipal equipment, but now that the town’s access to such a machine is gone, the weed harvester is sorely missed.

Sam Kaplan, mourned by those who knew him

editor@millertonnews.com
