Tracey Rex Reports to the People of Schodack
SCHODACK – I believe staying in touch with constituents is an important part of serving in elective office. This report, published every month since I took office in 2016, is an example of my commitment to keeping Schodack residents informed about town government news and community events.
At our December 29th meeting, the Town Board voted to allow adult-use cannabis retail dispensaries within the jurisdiction of the Town of Schodack. The Town Board also adopted a local law opting out of allowing on-site cannabis consumption establishments within the town. Dispensaries are expected to open after the state Office of Cannabis Management releases final rules and regulations for licensing.
The Town of Schodack is currently seeking qualified applicants for the following job vacancies: Highway Superintendent, Director of Planning & Zoning, and Building Inspector. For more information about these positions, visit www.schodack.org/human-resources and click on “Employment Opportunities” or contact our Human Resources Department at (518) 477-3628.
Congratulations to Highway Superintendent Ken Holmes who was honored by the Town Board upon his retirement after 20 years of dedicated service to our town. I much appreciated Ken’s cooperation and responsiveness to constituents’ inquiries and requests that I regularly passed along to him over the years. Enjoy your well-deserved retirement, Ken. The Town Board also honored Stuart McKnight upon his retirement after 39 years of dedicated service to the Schodack Police Department. Congrats, Stuart.
I was honored to attend the swearing-in ceremony for State Supreme Court Justice-elect Laura M. Jordan, a Schodack resident, at the Rensselaer County Courthouse. Laura’s impeccable legal credentials, sound judgment, and high personal character and integrity will serve her well in this important position. Congratulations, Laura.
Wishing you and yours a safe, healthy, and prosperous new year!
Tracey Rex, Schodack Town Councilwoman
