State of Emergency

Please be advised that the state of emergency issued by the Town Supervisor on June 30, 2014, due to flooding and severe road and stream damage as a result of the flooding is hereby ended. All roads have since been repaired and reopened. Drainage ways and streams have been restored. Much appreciation goes out to the Austerlitz Highway Superintendent and the Highway Department for working so diligently to make repairs and for the patience of all those who have been affected and inconvenienced by this event and subsequent repair work.

So Ordered,
Robert Lagonia, Supervisor

Power Lines

I  attended a NYSEG town hall meeting on July 31. The purpose of the meeting was to gather information on the proposed power lines in the town of Austerlitz.  There is a small section  of new poles being proposed from cnty rte 21 up to and down Rigor Hill Road. The purpose of these lines seems to be not necessary. The reasons given by the NYSEG representatives was for future growth and for redundancy in the event of a power outage. Some of NYSEG’s own engineers did not feel that these lines were necessary. It is also important to note that the proposed lines are a part of their second phase called Feeder #2. If you have any interest and or concerns about these lines coming to our town please download the PARTY STATUS REQUEST FORM and fill it out and send it in to Secretary@dps.ny.gov . The more members of the community that send in this form the more voices we will have once the hearing begin. There is not obligation or cost to join Party Status but, it will give the opportunity to receive information as well as attend the Hearings.
