The first meeting of the new year did not take a new tone, despite many attempts at humor by the board to lighten up the increasingly hostile setting. Following the conclusion of the organizational meeting, the regular meeting began with the newest report on the wind turbines. “I have a report relative to the windmills,” said Arkwright Supervisor Fred Norton. “Our engineer tested . . .

Town Attorney David DiMatteo, who prepared the proposed law, said he recommended the legislation . . . Complete story »
