continued “This is a no-brainer,” McCoy said. “The tents have been there forever.”
After the meeting, Quinn said he was pleased that the board resolved the issue.
“The board acted responsibly in protecting jobs and tax revenue,” he said.
The board also decided to grant a one-year approval of snowmobile travel down Mountain View Lane. The roadway abuts the Warren County Bike Trail, which in winter months is available for use by snowmobiles.
The resolution was passed after Ed Pagnotta, owner of the Barnsider Restaurant said he sought to stay open through the winter and keep his staff employed during the off-season.
Board members noted that both The Barnsider and Mama Rizzo’s Restaurant would benefit by granting the new access, which would be effective for a one-year trial period.
Board members noted that Mountain View, a dead-end road, would be marked with signs that declare No Through Traffic, and snowmobiles would be prohibited from turning left onto state Rte. 9.
