Cit of Beacon council & mayor basically giving public property to developers?

Recently the City of Beacon "sold" the old Highway Department property on Fishkill Creek to a developer for $150,000. That's right, the same type of creekside property that has luxury lofts for sale and luxury apartments for rent. Link

State Police playing Army on Mt Beacon?

Facebookers of Beacon have suggested that the several hours of close helicopter activity on or around Mt Beacon on the evening of Monday August 4th was related to NY State Police playing Army. One person said they hiked up to see what was going on and was confronted by a state police officer in military garb who told them to get lost and mind their own business.

Does anyone have any facts surrounding this event?

Once these ATVs leave the streets they are illegally occupying private property owned…

Does Beacon's Dog Warden actually "catch" dogs?

Someone a few houses away has two dogs that terrorize our neighborhood. They roam leashless at various times during the day, and regularly bark at and chase hikers coming up and down Pocket Road. Of course they crap on everyone else's lawns and annoy everyone but their owners.

I have complained to the dog owners with no success. Of course these are the kind of people who, when confronted with the issue, proceed to slap the dog's snout and yell at the dog because as we all know this… Continue
