Yule decorations to remain lit
January 14, 2021
Borough Manager Steve Giesbrecht and Utility Superintendent Karl Hagerman have agreed to leave the downtown Christmas tree and main street holiday lights illuminated, perhaps through February.
With the concurrence of the assembly members, the manager said he was okay with leaving the decorations up, but worried about the wind, which of late, has reached gusts of over 40 mph.
Giesbrecht said if wind damage occurs, the lights and tree will be taken down.
A citizen emailed the manager suggesting the lights and tree remain up, "as it adds a bright spot to our lives."...
