Nocturnal noise and burned-out building irk elderly neighbor

— After Frunzgeld said her complaints to police were futile, Councilmen Dean Ackley and Austin Markey suggested that if the excessive noise continues, she lodge a complaint with the county Sheriff’s Department, and a Disorderly Conduct violation might be warranted.

Larry Perna responded that the group keeps the noise down, and that it was Frunzgeld’s own dog that woke her up at night.

He added that the property was zoned commercial, and it was the best place he knew to have the papers dropped off and divvied up. He also pledged to take action on the property, while he contended it did not pose a health hazard.

Geraghty called for Perna to take action.

“We want that housed ‘rehabbed’ or torn down,” he said.

In other business, not one individual spoke out at the public hearing Sept. 14 on the town’s Draft Comprehensive Plan, which has been in development for several years. It calls for maximizing recreational, tourism and business opportunities in town through zoning changes and establishing incentives.

The board appointed Kathy Ferullo to the Warrensburg Board of Assessment Review to fill the unexpired term of Teddy Kalisz, who recently resigned. She is to serve through September 2014.

The date of Oct. 3 at 4:30 p.m. was set for Town Clerk Donna Combs to present the proposed 2012 town budget to the Town Board.

Town Supervisor Kevin Geraghty noted that the town has filed an affidavit with the state Supreme Court citing the town’s expenditures of $247,370 as its share of the multi-million-dollar environmental cleanup of the former Warrensburg Board & Paper plant, off state Rte. 418 on the Schroon River.

For decades in the early 1900s, the plant manufactured cardboard. A business developer received grant money to develop it in the early 1980s, but he never put people back to work as he promised state and federal authorities. Thereafter, the plant and the plant and extensive machinery sat idle and became unusable.
