Best Water? Latham beats Guilderland

GUILDERLAND — After being declared the town with the best-tasting water two years in a row, Guilderland lost its title this year, to Latham, by a margin of three points.

The Best Drinking Water in New York competition was held on Wednesday at the Empire State Plaza.

“It’s difficult to pull off a three-peat,” said Albany County Executive Daniel P. McCoy in a press release. “I am impressed that the competition was so close and it shows that we have consistently good tap water in the area.”

“Ideally, the land would not be used for development at all,” said Hawver. “But, what they’ve proposed is a reasonable compromise.”

“I want to be fair and just,” Democrat Peter Barber said during his Election Night victory speech. “I want to get to know every town employee and as many residents as I can.”

GUILDERLAND — A site owned by the Northeastern Industrial Park off of Depot Road has become a site for work on the proposed and controversial Constitution Pipeline.

Construction of a huge orange silo prompted neighbors and passers-by to wonder what was going on; workers at the site responded that they were not allowed to say.
