The swimming lane ropes at the Town Beach were being cut every few nights. Beach personnel were distraught. Rec Director Catherine Prentice grew more frustrated day by day. Town secretary Lori Patricola watched hours of camera footage hoping to catch the culprits, to no avail. Catherine replaced the ropes with heavy-duty nylon. The next night, they were cut again. Town police were called to the scene numerous times, but after careful patrolling of the area, could find no evidence of the perps. Finally, they decided to use infra-red hunting equipment to surveil the site: a stakeout ensued! But that night, no one cut the ropes. A few days went by and then they were cut again. Again, an officer spent the night with his infra-red camera. That night, he caught the vandals red-handed! Or red-pawed, as it were. A family of beavers were arrested on scene and taken in. All can now rest easy in the town of Pine Plains.
The Department of Agriculture and Markets visited Ronnybrook Farm on June 13th to celebrate their certification as a grown in New York business! And did you know… that after all the hubbub about eating dairy, the real fat-maker isn’t milk–it’s junk food and sugar. And no almond ever produced milk! Ask these ladies…
We are pleased to announce that Pine Plains Pharmacy has signed the mail order network contract with Express Script which means employees and retirees of PPCSD no longer need to mail away their prescription and they can get their medication needs locally at the pharmacy, with quality and safe medication and the service they deserve. We are requesting that if they have already registered with Express script, to cancel their registration by calling them at 1-888-613-6091 so there is no confusion. They can get their medications for 30-90 days supply of their choice at the same co-pay rate as mail order.
Thank you for your patience and co-operation and looking forward to provide the traditional services to our beloved community

Supervisor Cloud received a $7,200 Greenway Grant for a Comprehensive Plan Review for the town. This will allow us to conduct a number of meetings with townspeople to review the old plan and come up with ideas for revising and updating it. Zoning revision for economic development is a by-product of this work. Watch for information on how to participate!
To all Pine Plains Residents- Please be advised that the New York State Department of Transportation will be sweeping the State Roadways located within our Town late during the evening of Thursday April 26, 2018 into the early morning hours of April 27, 2018. Although not convenient for those trying to sleep, this is the safest time for the NYSDOT to perform these duties. If you can refrain from parking along the State roadway during this period of time, it would be much appreciated. Please keep in mind that this sweeping project will target only State roads. My crew has been out sweeping the Town roads during regular daytime work hours for the past several weeks now.
I am hopeful to have the street sweeper/vacuum contractor return on Monday April 30, 2018 to complete sweeping of the Town maintained roadways located in the center of Town in order to get rid of the sand at the road edge . The crew has also started tree trimming, ditch cleaning, springtime cleanup duties and road prep work so please be careful while traveling our roads. Please feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns. Heather M. Wilson, Highway Superintendent 518-398-6662 Office, 518-965-1876 Cell. Thank you!
