CHURCHTOWN — Snowfall and slippery roads didn’t stop more than 300 concerned residents and officials from attending a power line informational meeting Saturday morning at the Churchtown Firehouse.

The meeting was organized by Ian Solomon, leader of Farmers and Families for Claverack, with help from Pam Kline, leader of Farmers and Families for Livingston. The purpose of the meeting was to disseminate information regarding the proposed power line upgrades, which are part of Gov. Cuomo’s state Energy Highway.

    The article is great but vying companies proposals that require expanding towers by using outdated technology is very old. Outdated technology cannot help us out, so in my opinion going and working with the latest technology will surely be a great opinion.[smile]

    Mr Porreca "johnny come-lately". Instead of saying grenport WILL be passing a resolution, he should be saying that the board will consider passing a resolution at the next meeting.

    We heard that Boundless Energy (one of the four bidders) will not build any towers. They simply re-cable an existing line on the west side of the Hudson river. That means they take down the existing cable and replace it with a new cable from 3M that carries twice as much power using the same diameter. This method has zero impact on the citizens of both the east and west side of the Hudson. They have a web site www.leedspathwest.com
