Tague's milk bill gains steam

5/26/2022

Schoharie County supervisors have signed onto the statewide effort to bring whole milk back to schools.

Both were removed about 10 years ago because of concerns over fat, but with research, the science has changed.
Pennsylvania has already moved to allow both whole- and two-percent milk back in schools.
“Resolved, that the County of Schoharie, New York, applauds and suppor ...

5/26/2022

About 20 years after hooking into the Village of Cobleskill’s water system, Warnerville may get sewer service as well.
Richmondville Supervisor Jeff Haslun earlier this month sent a letter to Cobleskill officials, notifying them about a Warnerville sewer study.
Hooking into Cobleskill’s sewage system is only one option, however; linking with the Village of Richmondville’s system is another, as is Warnerville having its own leach field or treatment plant.
Brendon Becker of Lamont Engineers is doing the study, which he expects to be finished this summer.
That would be in time for Richmondville to apply for state water grants available in the fall and also federal in ...

5/19/2022

Schoharie Promotional Association will present its inaugural Beverages on the Bridge event from 1-4pm this Saturday, May 21, on the Fox Creek covered bridge in Schoharie.
