From the desk of:
Keith A. Langley, Supervisor
Town of East Greenbush
It looks like a beautiful start to the month of April; let’s hope that winter is finally over! In my last Supervisor’s report I brought exciting news about new businesses that will be coming to Routes 9&20, and I’m happy to announce a couple more. The Columbia Café is now open for breakfast and lunch. The Columbia Café is located near Jazzercise in the plaza at 179 Columbia Turnpike.
Opening by the end of April, just in time for the warm summer months is Dave’s Dog House, a burger and hot dog stand. People keep saying that what 9&20 needs is a place to get a good burger, and we will soon have one! Dave’s Dog House will be located in the Price Chopper Plaza in the former coffee stand. We wish both new businesses good luck in their endeavors and we look forward to visiting often.
To continue with monthly updates on the Waste Water Treatment Plant project, construction trailers have been set up and all contractors are ready to get to work. We are still on track for completion by the end of the year.
In addition to calls about new businesses, our offices have been inundated with phone calls regarding conditions of the roads throughout Town. We have heard from New York State Department of Transportation that work on local roads throughout the Capital District is commencing on May 5th and will be completed by this fall. Our Department of Public Works is also taking necessary actions to make sure Town deadlines are met. We hope that this summer travel between Routes 4 and the Routes 9 & 20 split in Castleton will be much smoother for everyone. Concerning Town roads that need repairs, DPW will be taking care of those issues as soon as weather permits.
