Doctor back for summer at VA clinic

— The doctor is back in.

Keene Supervisor and veteran’s committee chair William Ferebee told members of the Essex County Public Safety Committee May 14 that the doctor who has been working during the summer months at the VA Clinic in the former New York State Police barracks in Westport had returned.

“The doctor who works during the summer has returned and will be here through November,” Ferebee said. “We also have a good candidate who may come in as a full-time doctor.”

Along with the staffing changes at the clinic, Ferebee also said he had received several comments from people on the work being done to keep the Veteran's Memorial Cemetery in Wadhams maintained.

Also during the meeting, supervisors passed a motion to the Ways and Means Committee to replace the server at the Board of Elections.

“This is really an IT issue as much as a board of elections problem,” County Manager Daniel Palmer said. “This server is six years old and after four years, the company will no longer offer support. All of the data that is contained for their elections are on these servers.”
