Supermarket Returning to Middleburgh Next Year

Because of the incredible efforts of several key parties, a supermarket will be coming into the Village in the coming year.

The partnership between Jim and Jason Becker with Carver Laraway will be constructing the store, which will be a similar size as the former Grand Union. It will be operated by an independent local owner that will be responsive to our community needs.

The store will be placed across Route 30 from the former Grand Union on the lot near the Pharmacy. The former Henry Doerge property will be used to construct town houses to expand housing capacity for our community after losing so many units due to the flood. These new buildings will be beautiful and designed to fit right in with the community.

The plan is to have the supermarket open by the middle to end of summer 2016. I cannot thank all parties involved enough-- they have been very well organized and community oriented throughout this whole process. I'm looking forward to this project providing one of the last missing pieces for our community.

We will be having an informational meeting next Monday, December 14th at 7pm at the Fire House to hear any public thoughts or concerns.

This is a wonderful Christmas present to a community that has perservered through so much.

2015 Budget, Tax Rate Mostly Steady for Fourth Straight Year

Last week the Village Board passed the 2015-2016 budget. For the fourth straight year we were able to keep spending and taxes mainly flat. We were able to be creative with our funding and provided an $8,000 grant match fund and increased funding for a new fire truck. We are planning on using our budget for several to be announced projects to benefit the people of the Village. The tax rate increased a hair, by 1%-- leaving our average tax hike at 0.24% per year, slashing the former rate of increase of 2.64% per year by over 90%. Over the last four years, compared to the former rate increases, we're proud to report that we've saved the average taxpayer $225 over the last four years.
