Public hearing on zoning law amendments set for 6 p.m. Thursday Dec. 12
Touring motorcyclists wait at a stoplight in downtown Lake George during a prior year’s Americade event which annually attracts tens of thousands of motorcyclists. The Lake George Town Board is considering a zoning amendment which is designed to encourage more such festivals by permitting festival organizers and allowing individual vendors to sell merchandise and services under the legal umbrella, rather than paying a $500 transient vendor fee which is now assessed to every vendor under existing town law. Local officials say that large events like Americade are important to retain in Warren County — a research study conducted several years ago indicated that Americade pumps about $40 million into the local economy per year.

Wealthy towns get richer, poor towns, poorer
Like the inequitable distribution of wealth in our nation, the towns with expensive lakefront properties get more and more sales tax revenue each year to offset governmental expenses, while the towns with little or no such property get comparatively little sales tax revenue — despite the fact they may be generating the revenue by hosting flourishing businesses. The outcome? more and more of the tax load gets shifted to the working class and those with fixed incomes. The Supervisors of the land-rich towns balk at raising the subject, because they don't want to rock the boat.
