The Register-Star reports on two actions taken recently by the Columbia County Board of Supervisors. In the first, the board voted against a resolution authorizing a public hearing on a proposal to allow "common, safe items to be excluded from the dangerous fireworks definition: "Fireworks measure defeated in supervisor's vote." The outcome is that the sale and purchase of fireworks will continue to be prohibited in Columbia County.
In the second, the Board of Supervisors approved issuing a request for proposals "for design/engineering and other needed services for determining the location and design of a trail at the North Bay Recreation Area": "North Bay project takes step forward." The trail in Hudson would connect with the trail system at the Greenport Conservation Area and trails leading to Harrier Hill in Stockport.
