Vot­ers dou­ble two-year term for high­way boss

Daily Freeman (Kingston, NY) - - OBITUARIES - By Wil­liam J. Kem­ble news@free­manon­line.com

Town res­i­dents voted 3,766-3,268 in fa­vor of a propo­si­tion that will dou­ble the term for the town high­way su­per­in­ten­dent from two to four years.

Un­der the propo­si­tion, the longer term will be­gin with the win­ner of the 2017 high­way su­per­in­ten­dent’s elec­tion.

Town High­way Su­per­in­ten­dent Doug Myer said he sup­ported the propo­si­tion as a way to en­sure con­ti­nu­ity for long-term projects and shared ser­vices with neigh­bor­ing mu­nic­i­pal­i­ties.

Myer, who has been high­way su­per­in­ten­dent since 2012, said there are longterm plans that are eas­ier to ac­com­plish if there isn’t an elec­tion cam­paign ev­ery other year.
