“I think it’s a good thing for all of us to have the experience, and fresh ideas and perspective are always good,” Rice said.
City option dead .. for now
Trustee Pelletieri wrote a memo to Village Board members about a recent meeting with Sen. Betty Little, R-Queensbury. At their April 23 meeting, Pelletieri told board members that he and Trustee Van Cott met with Sen. Little on Friday, April 20 to talk about the possibility of the village going to a city. He said he wanted to hear her opinion and ideas firsthand, and they walked away with the feeling that Saranac Lake will not become a city anytime soon.
“In our view, the chances of Saranac Lake becoming a city are slim to none at this time,” Pelletieri said. “We’re not giving up on it totally. Things could change in 10 years with the whole system of government.”
