Town of Woodbury’s New Supervisor Plans on Maintaining His Position Regarding Kiryas Yoel.


    The new Town of Woodbury supervisor Burke said, “I plan on maintaining my positions,” he said yesterday. “I’ve not given up my right to make an individual vote on things I feel very strongly about.”
    And the thorniest issue of all on the horizon is a potential land war with neighboring Kiryas Joel.
    Burke said he’s willing to meet with Kiryas Joel leaders but sounds no more willing than his predecessor to consider a compromise that would allow the Chasidic community’s high-density housing to spread into Woodbury’s rural fringe.
    That goes for any annexation of Woodbury land into Kiryas Joel: “If the solution is for part of Woodbury to be no longer be part of Woodbury, I’m not interested.”
