Public sounds off about vacant building registry

"There's nothing for my generation that wants to stay here because everyone is moving out," said Johnston. "There are a lot of Capital Region builders that don't want to build [in Glenville] because its difficult to build here."

Town Supervisor Chris Koetzle said he felt that there was a lot of misconceptions about the proposed bill.

"The intent is not to give residents a hard time but to take care of the blight in the town," said Koetzle.

Koetzle also said that the town would make exceptions for instances such as a death in the family, where a home may quickly come on the market, but wants to create an incentive for property owners while getting rid of empty business space in the town.

"Generally speaking, the board's goal is to mitigate empty business space in Glenville," he said.""
