Wonder About A Set-Up...
Phoenicia Times Staff
According to Shandaken Supervisor Robert Cross Jr., there are
two responses to a request for proposals the town board sent out.
The RFP asks for plans and prices to build a cell tower at Glenbrook
Park. No contract has been awarded yet, Cross said, and whether
the town board decides to make a deal remains to be seen.
“I’m just one town board member,” Cross said
Saturday when asked if he had already made an agreement with one

CWT President Meehan Steps Down After Failure To Shift
By Phoenicia Times Staff
The longtime chairman of the Coalition of Watershed
Towns stepped down Monday, saying it is time for the
advocacy group to change.
Pat Meehan, supervisor of the Greene County town of
Windham, has been a member of Coalition’s Executive
Committee ever since the organization was formed in
1991. After becoming the first, and one of the only
members of the Catskill Watershed Corporation board
to resign his position in that entity’s first
years – reportedly after procedural questions
were raised about grantgiving between the organization
and businesses in his town – Meehan basically
rescuscitated the CWT and ran it as President since
the late 1990s.
