THE NEXT REGULAR TOWN BOARD MEETING WILL BE ON THURSDAY, August 28, 2014, AT 7 PM.  Natural Gas meeting August 20, 2014, 7PM Poestenkill Firehouse!  

Welcome

Quiet, safe, and far removed from the hustle and bustle of modern urban society, Poestenkill is a quaint community located in Rensselaer County, New York, with a population just over 4,500 in 2010. As a "gateway" to the Rensselaer Plateau, we offer residents and visitors a unique opportunity to experience a wealth of outdoor recreation activities and easy access to some of the Plateau's most celebrated state parks, forests, and natural landmarks. Our town is home to a number of unique shops, diverse dining, and community events.



Letter from the Supervisor,

Whether you have lived in Poestenkill your whole life, are a recent resident or seeking to become a resident, we hope that you will find our website helpful. I know that our folks at Town Hall are always willing and happy to serve and assist you. Our community is proud of our small town atmosphere and our special heritage anchored in agriculture and forest products. We are proud to be a "Right to Farm" community that has enjoyed modest growth without sacrificing our small town feel and ample open spaces.

 

Do you have a question? Can't find something on the website? Or have a suggestion on how this site can better serve the public? Stop by our historic Town Hall, give me a call or send me an email, I would love to hear from you.

 

Sincerely,

Dom Jacangelo

 

 

"The Town of Poestenkill  is an equal opportunity employer and provider of municipal services."

Natural Gas Meeting
July 19, 2014

On Wednesday, August 20, 2014 at the Poestenkill Fire House located on Main Street there will be a public information meeting at 7 PM regarding the Natural Gas project.  

 

The Town of Poestenkill has been working with National Grid to bring Natural Gas to the Poestenkill Hamlet.  The pipe route will install natural gas facilities along NY 355 from the intersection with NY 66 to the Highway Garage on Plank Road.  Presuming the project moves forward and enough residents and businesses sign up to convert, the project will provide natural gas to all the homes and businesses along that route and eventually encompass the homes along the various side streets. 

 

At the meeting will be representatives of National Grid, the Center for Economic Growth, USDA Rural Development, the Town of Poestenkill and others to provide information on the project and what assistance may be available to property owners to undertake the conversion to Natural Gas. 

 

If you live along or own property along NY 355 or Plank Road between NY 351 and the Highway Garage please down load the forms provided and return them to Poestenkill Town Hall.
