Book Signing: Leroy Collins, The Running Back

Join us January 11th, at 1pm, in welcoming NFL great Leroy Collins at his book signing at the Rensselaer Library. Meet this local legend who started his career in the Capital Region playing against the teams we all played for in high school.

Collin’s book The Running Back (From the wheelchair to the NFL) will be available for purchase and signing. This true story follows a young man’s journey as he battles back from injuries sustained in a tragic automobile accident. From the vantage point of his wheelchair an NFL game on TV inspires him to dream the impossible. As he recovers, he sets his sights on playing football in the NFL. This story takes you into his mind and heart as he makes decisions that take him off track from reaching his dream. He develops some bad habits that can not only destroy a career but can potentially take his life. But his faith along with the love from his family put his life back on course making his unlikely dream a miraculous reality.

Tracey Rex Reports to the People of Schodack

I believe staying in touch with constituents is an important part of serving in elective office. This monthly report is an example of my commitment to keeping residents informed of the activities of the Schodack Town Board. All meetings of the Town Board, Planning Board and Zoning Board can be viewed live or at a later date at https://townhallstreams.com/towns/schodack.

During December, the Town Board adopted a resolution honoring Katherine Lubbers for her dedicated service to our community as Receiver of Taxes from 2004-2019. We wish Kathy all of the best in retirement.

At the year-end December 30 meeting, the Town Board adopted the annual salary expense for employees and elected officials for calendar year 2020. This list as well as the entire adopted 2020 budget can be viewed at www.schodack.org.

Schodack Town Hall recently hosted one of three Criminal Justice Reform forums that were held in Rensselaer County to address New York’s criminal justice reforms that took effect on January 1. Thank you to District Attorney Mary Pat Donnelly and other county elected officials for hosting this informative event. If you wish to view the forum, it has been archived at https://townhallstreams.com/towns/schodack.

There was a terrific turnout for the Castleton-on-Hudson Farmers & Artisans Market inaugural Winter Fest at the Castleton Fire Department. I enjoyed shopping the vendors, making an ornament and visiting with Santa. The event was so well attended, there will be a February Fest on February 7 from 4:30 p.m. – 7:30 p.m. at the Castleton Fire Department — another wonderful opportunity to enjoy our community and support our local vendors.

Our community experienced significant snowfall during December. I wish to thank the entire Highway Department workforce for their excellent work in keeping our roadways clear and safe. Our Highway Department is second to none, led by Superintendent of Highways Ken Holmes.

Schodack Supervisor’s Report for December 2019

In a continuing effort to keep residents informed of my activities as well as issues pertaining to the Town, I submit to them this report for December of 2019. As always, further information can be found on the Town’s website or it’s social media pages.

I want to start by wishing everyone a Happy New Year and thank everyone for their support these past two years during my first term. My second term began on January 1st, 2020 and I look forward over these next two years to continuing the good work we’ve done.

On December 5th, the Town received word that the Third Appellate Division court affirmed a previous ruling in favor of the Town as it pertained to an Article 78 proceeding regarding the proposed Amazon Sales Distribution center. I’m happy that two courts have now upheld the work and authority of our Planning Board in making decisions regarding this project. I’m proud of our Planning Department, our Planning Board, and our legal counsel for the hard work and dedication they have shown throughout this process and I’m hopeful that this brings to an end the additional costs we’ve had to bear in defending ourselves in these proceedings.

I regularly spend time with Highway Superintendent Ken Holmes visiting and discussing potential areas of concern in town. Our Highway Department strives to be proactive in identifying and addressing these issues and I’m thankful for the watchful eyes of Ken and our Highway Crew. Recent trips have been to examine some sewer problems along Miller Road, and a currently private road through a development in East Schodack that isn’t being properly maintained by the developer during and after winter storms creating a hazard for residents that live on it. I’m hopeful we can reach a solution that protects taxpayers and ensures the developer fulfills their responsibilities.

And Finally, I’d like to end by thanking outgoing Receiver of Taxes Kathy Lubbers for her years of service and wish her well in her retirement.
