Trustees plan to revisit farmers' market decision

Saumier says there's a misunderstanding that the farmers' market is getting a "hand out" from the village.

"We are not asking for free space in the park," she said. "We were told when we made the application that there was a park-use fee. We're willing to pay that and we understand that things like the grass need to be cut. We're very willing to pay the park-use fee."

At the end of the meeting, Trustee Jeff Branch asked the board to revisit the issue at a special meeting next week. He says too many people have spoken out against the decision and that the board needs to listen to the public.

For her part, Moriarty submitted a second letter to the board, stating that she was not opposed to the Saturday market.

She also took exception to an editorial that appeared in a recent edition of the Adirondack Daily Enterprise. She says vendors set up in her parking lot last year were not competing with other merchants.

Monday's special meeting is set for 5 p.m. at the village offices.
