Unfortunately due to a shortage of lifeguards. Usher Park Beach is now CLOSED for the season. We apologize for any inconvenience. 

On Monday June 27, at 6pm, in the Town Hall meeting room, the Village Board of Trustees will be hosting a Public Information Session (#1) regarding the Village Dissolution process, petition, and the soon-to-be-created "Interim Dissolution Study".

Topics to be discussed include "how we got here?", the Dissoution process, what does an Interim Study entail, what does a Dissolution Plan entail, next steps, and a Questions and Answers / Public comment period.

Because a petiion was submitted and a vote is imminent, the concern is now getting accurate information out to the Village voters before the Referendum vote date of September 13. This will be the first of several informational sessions to be held before a Public Hearing on the Interim Study.

New Tax District for EMS Services

UPDATE: As of 8/2/2021, the Town has re-approved of this special district, pursuant to a mandatory referendum to be held at the November general election. This is because a petition was filed on the March 2021 approval of the district, which would have required a special election. Following the petition, the resolution to establish the district was rescinded. (in June 2021). Following a public workshop on EMS in July, and a Special Meeting on August 2nd, the Board re-approved the special district, subject to a mandatory referendum (Vote). Public information sessions will likely be held prior to the 11/2 vote. 

The Town has been studying the possibility of creating a special improvement/tax district to establish a sustainable way to continue paying for EMS service to the Town, whether in the form of the Town department or a private contract. The EMS Steering Committee, in conjunction with the Planning and Zoning Office and the Town Board, have developed a Map Plan and Report for the formation of a special district for EMS, with the intent on developing a Town EMS Department with district tax levy.

Attached are the final Map, Plan and Report for the proposed Lake George EMS district. The AMENDED version is the latest and complete adopted version.

This Map, Plan and Report document is filed in the Town Clerk's Office and available for review if requested. For any technical questions, please contact either the Town Board at 518-668-5722, or Dan Barusch, EMS District Steering Committee Chair at This email address is being protected from spambots.
