Since what has been described as the 100-year storm occurred on July 1, 2017, the Woods Brook and in particular where it passes through the Village has been in front of the Hoosick Falls Board of Trustees nearly every meeting since. The Trustees’ Tuesday, September 13 meeting was no exception.
The vast majority of the clean-up work is done and the Village voted earlier this year to erect fencing for both safety and aesthetic concerns.
