NEW SCOTLAND — Four women are running for two seats on the Voorheesville School Board this May.

The Voorheesville boys' baseball team beat Watervliet at home on April 15 at Swift Park.

The budget is up three percent from last year, at $2.13 million, and includes increased health insurance costs of more than $30,000.

All class sizes in kindergarten through fifth grade were capped at 27 students.

Business owners Gary Guyette and P. J. Hognestad want to expand or start up agriculture and outdoors supply businesses along Route 308.

Four of the town board’s five members, a supermajority, would have to support the allowance.

Administrators hope to find a way to have five regular class sections rather than four for a class of 102, after parents requested the section for a third year, according to Voorheesville Superintendent Brian Hunt.

The planning board agreed to waive a public hearing for the Hilton LeVie barn site plan for the barn's foundation.
