Meeting of the Mayors
Cobleskill Mayor Mark Galasso sat down with Middleburgh's Matthew Avitabile and Deputy Mayor Thomas Gruning for an informal chat on Thursday, October 4th. The meeting at the Cobleskill Village office centered around ways the two municipalities could work together. These included Cobleskill's recent success in consolidation efforts. Mayor Galasso explained Cobleskill's improving tax outlooks and further plans to bring the Town and Village governments closer together. The Middleburgh contingent also discussed the possibility of using the Village of Cobleskill police under contract in the future. There were no solid plans, but opened options for cooperation between the two Villages. Mayor Galasso said that the meeting was positive while Deputy Mayor Gruning stated that it was informative. Avitabile and Gruning plan on meeting with Schoharie Mayor John Borst in the near future to discuss similar outlooks.
