CHATHAM – The board approved the purchase of two new police cars for the Village Police Department at last week's regular meeting. After much debate, and an offer by part-time Police Chief Peter Volkman to give back $5,000 a year of his salary to pay for the cars, the board approved signing a lease on two Dodge Chargers for about $56,000 each, paid for as a $15,000 annual lease lasting four years. At the end of four years, Chief Volkman said the board could purchase the cars for $1 each.

“I see it as $15,000 a year out of a $150,000 budget,” the chief told the board at the Thursday, April 10 meeting, measuring the cost of the lease against the annual budget for the whole department.

Catamount developers say volume has dwindled on Route 23

COPAKE—Roads and traffic were the main concerns on the minds of some who spoke when the Copake Planning Board opened a public hearing on the proposed $80-million Berkshire Mountain Club at Catamount Ski Area April 3.

But data in a recently updated analysis submitted as part of the developers' plan shows a sharp decline in traffic volume on State Route 23 over the last 10 years.

The club, a four-season resort situated at the base of Catamount, is proposed in three phases over 10 years including a hotel and time-share with 153 residential units (256 beds).
