Ryan: Move XNG Off 2-Lanes; Kennedy: Attend 11/66 Briefing

DISTRICT 6 DEBATE (HARTWICK, MILFORD, NEW LISBON)

Ryan: Move XNG Off 2-Lanes;

Kennedy: Attend 11/16 Briefing

With recent concerns about the XNG trucks on Route 205 following an accident in September, county Rep. Meg Kennedy, R-Hartwick/Milford/New Lisbon, and her Democratic challenger, Pat Ryan, fielded a question from Deb Taylor, county tourism director, on the subject at tonight’s District 5 county board debate at the Hartwick Community Center in the hamlet.  “The only thing we could do, at the county, is re-route them to the main highway,” said Ryan. Meanwhile, Kennedy pointed out that both the Attorney General and the State DOT were taking comments on the routes, and encouraged citizens to attend an informational meeting at 6 p.m. on Nov. 16 at the Milford Central School. “Our EMTs participated in training and were invaluable when the truck turned over,” she said. “I would recommend even more training. The more we know, the better we can move forward.”  At right is Stephanie Bauer of Cooperstown, the League of Women Voters moderator.  Debates were also underway this evening in Fly Creek (District 8) and Cherry Valley (District 7).  (Ian Austin/AllOTSEGO.com)
