Chair of Ulster County Legislature Visits ShandakenHow about, "This is something that needs to be fixed and you have my unwavering commitment to making sure it happens soon"? Instead, Shandaken residents receive nothing more than vague promises.
Terry Bernardo, of the Chair of the Ulster County Legislature, attended the board meeting.
Town councilman Vincent Bernstein told Bernardo that it was vital to get the Bridge Street Bridge in Phoenicia reopened. The bridge has been closed since it was damaged in the Irene floods last fall.
“Can we bank on your help?” he asked Bernardo.
Councilman Alfie Higley echoed Bernstein's plea for getting the bridge reopened.
“We really need it by summer," he said. "Cars don’t go in [to Phoenicia], I’ve seen it myself.”
Bernardo assured everyone that she would do what she could.
If you want some advice when it comes to dealing with the Bernardos: Get it in writing.
