New From The Gallatin Residents Association


Here are two April Meetings to put in your book:

Saturday, April 15
9:45 AM – 11 noon
Gallatin Residents Association ANNUAL GENERAL MEETING

Revised Schedule

Saturday, April 15
8:30 – 9:30 AM
Gallatin Town Hall
Open to the Public
On average once a year the Town Board holds meetings on a Saturday morning instead of a Tuesday evening. To have a better understanding of how your town is managed, this will give you a good indication of the level of detail our Town Board engages on to maintain a balanced budget and deal with issues that arise that affect your quality of life.

9:45 – 11:00 AM
At this first gathering of the year Gallatin Residents will review and decide upon the year’s events including
Annual Town Road Clean-up
GRA will provide gloves, bags and fluorescent sashes.
Summer Picnic
Environmental and other local concerns
Officers of the GRA

Sunday, April 23
10 – 11 AM
Gallatin Town Hall
You will be given a crash course in how local government in Columbia County is structured and what say you as voters can have in the policies of County and State government. And we have some practiced faculty from nearby Bard College to take us through our paces. [This was to have been held April 8.]

Erin Cannan is the Deputy Director, Bard Center for Civic Engagement at nearby Bard College. As deputy director of the center, Erin’s primary focus is on the development of local volunteer and internship opportunities. She facilitates local connections to school districts, government, and business while working to develop partnerships within the center network. Erin will be joined by grassroots organizer Connor Boehme who is a rising senior majoring in Political Studies and Literature. He brings years of experience to the initiative from working on political campaigns in New York City on voter registration, campaign finance reform, and outreach to local officials.

Sunday, May 21
10 – 11 AM
Gallatinville Conservation Area
Kaare Christian of the Roe Jan Watershed Association will give us a profile of our main waterway: of the life it supports and the condition of the water quality along this Hudson River tributary. Kaare Christian of Germantown founded the group which is already testing the waters of the Roeliff Jansen Kill as part of the non-profit environmental group Riverkeeper’s Water Quality Program. We will meet at the recently created conservation area off Gallatinville Road:
