Aug 26, 2010 — Voters in the Lake George area go to the polls today to decide whether they want to create a new village. The new community, called East Lake George, would be carved out of the towns of Fort Ann and Queensbury.
Supporters of the move say it would help to ease the high property tax burden on their mostly waterfront homes. The change drew fire from the Glens Falls Post-Star newspaper, which published an editorial yesterday urging voters to reject the plan.
Anthony Hall is publisher of the Lake George Mirror newspaper and he's been covering this story. He talked about today's vote with Brian Mann.
NOTE: The polls are open today at the North Queensbury Fire Station from noon until 9 pm.
