Canal Corp, town to meet about Pavilan

The two sides in the Pavilion “should we stay or should we go” issue will hold a public meeting on Monday, March 16 at the site.

 


 

 

The town board announced that there will be a special meeting between the New York State Canal Corporation and the board on March 16 at 10:30 a.m. at the Pavilion.

At issue will be the town’s use of the Pavilion as their town hall, a move that was made

“Carmella Mantello and staff are scheduled to meet with the supervisor regarding the town use of the Pavilion,” said Canal Corporation spokeswoman Erin Egans. “I know that Carmella did speak to him about the meeting and left it up to him how to conduct the meeting.”

The town of Whitehall has been using the Pavilion as their home since they were forced to leave their former offices on Main Street in 2006. In the last year, the town has looked at a number of options for a new town hall home, including the former Troy Shirtmakers Guild property, the former Garden Time and Off-Track Betting building and the Skenesborough Volunteer Fire Department’s firehouse.

As of right now, town supervisor Vernon Scribner has not returned calls on the meeting. We will do our best to hunt him down in the forest and run him through with a maple sugar spigot.
