Dear Friends:  Thank you all for the wonderful party on Sunday night.  It’s a sure sign of success when you have fun at your own party.  The evening was beautifully captured in film by amazing photographers Camille and Greg Vickers and Beechler.  Take a minute to look at our website to stroll through them.  Thank you so much, Greg and Camille for your images.  To me, each one is a wonderful portrait, revealing the characters that make up our Town.  Here’s to Halcott!  With love, Innes.

Innes Kasanof, Town Supervisor, announced her retirement last night at the Halcott Town Board meeting, citing deep regret that her personal responsibilities prohibit her from continuing to serve as Supervisor. Under Innes’s leadership our small but very special town has enjoyed a period of great progress in a number of areas, while recovering from some of the most significant weather damage ever recorded. Innes has been the driving force for bringing broadband access to town, worked to make significant improvements to the Grange and the Highway buildings and left the town with a sound financial foundation. Those familiar with her approach to operating the Town will remember her term as Supervisor as a cooperative and productive time in the history of Halcott. One of the most lasting impacts of Innes’s leadership will be gentle guidance from the Land Use Code enacted a few years ago.

After announcing her resignation, the Town board appointed Alan White to serve as the Town Supervisor for the remainder of the year and appointed Innes to fill Alan’s Town Council position. We hope you will find the opportunity to thank Innes for all she has done.
