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

    0

    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.”
