Free disposal days at landfill
The Warrensburg Town Board voted June 12 to designate two days to dispose of large items such as furniture, tires, stoves, refrigerators, and other similar things at the landfill. Saturday June 29 and Sunday June 30 are the free disposal days for these items, usually accepted at set fees. Normal rates prevail for normal household trash.
This town cleanup day is for Warrensburg residents only — drivers’ licenses will be examined for compliance with the residency requirement.
Rafting trips to go through town
The Sacandaga Outdoor Center of Hadley is likely to soon offer rafting trips down the Schroon River through downtown Warrensburg, according to information released at the June town board meeting.
The trips are to begin at the town’s Swan St. well property, along the river. John Duncan, owner of the Sacandaga Outdoor enterprise, said he hopes to begin these trips as soon as late June or early July — pending acquisition of insurance coverage.
Scout Lance Bedell honored
At their June 12 meeting, the Warrensburg Town Board honored local teenager Lance Bedell for achieving his Eagle Scout status. He was recognized by town Supervisor Kevin Geraghty as well as Deputy Supervisor John Alexander, who earned the Eagle Scout distinction decades ago.
As his major Eagle Scout project, Bedell constructed an access ramp at the Warrensburg American Legion Hall. The upgrade now allows veterans with mobility restrictions to easily enter the hall. The project also included rebuilding a roof over the entrance. The work, accomplished by Bedell, his fellow scouts, parents and their friends, has been praised by Legion and scout officials.
Business Alliance, fire co. funded
The Town Board granted the newly formed Warrensburg Business Alliance $552 from town occupancy tax receipts to advertise their “Taste of Warrensburg” event that was held June 19.
Also, the Warrensburg Volunteer Fire Co. was awarded $500 towards fireworks displays to occur at the group’s annual Smoke Eaters’ Jamboree, scheduled for late July.
