New county leader reveals objectives

Also a top priority for the county in 2011 is choosing a new railroad operator and negotiating with the company to do all that's feasible to develop freight and tourist traffic - both vital to job creation and economic development, Stec said.

"We need to do all we can to attract people to come to our area to both work and play," he said.

The last two objectives Stec identified for the upcoming year are also about county infrastructure.

The Exit 18/Main Street reconstruction project, under development for 15 years or so, may finally be completed this next year, and it's likely to boost retail development in the area, Stec said.

"This is a big project for both Queensbury and Glens Falls," he said.
