Shandaken passes farmstand law

After years of wrangling, a law easing the zoning regulations on farmstands has finally been passed in the town of Shandaken, at a hearing held tonight on the issue.

Town board member Alfie Higley Jr., who along with his father Al Higley runs a farmstand that has been at the heart of the controversy over the issue, did not attend the meeting or vote on the new law.

Our reporter, Rusty Mae Moore, was at tonight's hearing. We'll have a full story tomorrow.
