A huge thank you to the Hillsdale Fire Company, our neighboring fire companies and volunteers, and all the first responders who intervened in the aggressive blaze at Four Brothers Plaza on Sunday, February 16. Though we lost Hillsdale Healthcare and a big chunk of the plaza, Coldwell Banker and Four Brothers were saved. Most importantly, there were no significant injuries. This demonstrates how important it is to fund and support the men and women in our community who always have our back.

New Regulations for Short-term Rentals

At its monthly meeting on December 10, the Town Board unanimously adopted a new local law regulating transient rentals in the Town. The law defines transient rentals as the rental or lease of any dwelling to a transient guest for a period of fewer than 30 days (excluding hotels, motels, inns, and B&Bs).

A complete copy of this new law is available here.
