Read family thanks village for work
October 18, 2011 - Jessica Collier
At last night's village board meeting, village Mayor Mickey Desmarais said Curtis Read invited village crews to his place to thank them for trimming the trees along Read and Strange Road up to his family's camp.
The village agreed back in the 1930s to take care of upkeep on that road in exchange for using water from their Little Simond Pond as a water source for the village, Desmarais said.
Read's family is a party to the hearing, actually two parties, separated into two different groups or entities, I guess. It was mainly Curtis and B.G. representing the two camps throughout the adjudicatory hearing process.
Their main issue in the hearing was the transfer of building rights over Read and Strange Road, which separates the commercial center of the resort from some of the more residential areas, including most of the great camp lots (all of the big ones I think). One of these days I'll do a blog post getting into the details of that.
But the thank-you dinner is sure to raise the eyebrow of several people who may have criticized the Reads as being in cahoots with the environmental groups, especially after Curtis Read hosted Protect the Adirondacks' annual meeting.
Village electric Superintendent John Bouck called the camp a "marvelous piece of architecture."
